Fontanel Mansion is a 27,000 square foot log home formerly owned by Country Music Hall of Fame(R) member Barbara Mandrell, and is Nashville's only country music mansion tour giving visitors a sneak peek into the lives of country music greats. The home, situated on the 136 acre property, is nestled in the rolling hills of the Whites Creek Valley. With The Inn at Fontanel, the Woods Amphitheater, Pritchard's Distillery the Pepsi Studio Gallery, Cafe Fontanella, Music City Ziplines by Adventure Works, The Trails and Metro Parks Greenway, it is easy to see why Fontanel is becoming one of Nashville's premier destinations. We offer a family and dog friendly atmosphere located just minutes from downtown Nashville in Whites Creek. Closed on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.

Great place to visit. Impressive mansion and interesting stories. Thanks to our tour guide "Mohawk" Steve for giving an informative tour. Admission price was average for the experience but you can look for 2 for 1 or half off online/local magazines as we did. Great idea for supporting local music artists.

Super attraction to visit! Mohawk Steve was wonderful and very knowledgable! Played the piano, sang and even took several pictures of my parents with their three grown daughters! Great family trip with lots of fond memories! What amazing stories hanging on the walls! Beautiful location! Thanks so much for the memories! We will be back!

We were fortunate in being the only two on our tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. He also played the piano very well. The mansion was well worth the price of admission. I would recommend it to anyone. It was a very rewarding experience.

We went to Prichards Distillery which was ok. There's not much there as far as a distillery but you do get to taste all the Prichards tasty beverages. If you have never experienced the tasty adult beverages made by Prichards you are a fool and should go NOW!!

My wife and I had a great time here. Steve, our tour guide, was very informative and friendly. The house was amazing. We also visited the distillery on the property and enjoyed it too.

My husband and I had a great time touring Fontanel Mansion. The home was beautiful, and the tour was very unique because you are allowed, and even encouraged, to touch or take photos of some of the memorabilia. The customer service was also great as the employees were very helpful and friendly. We very much enjoyed our visit!

The tour guides are all musicians themselves and give a terrific tour with stories and music added. All the rooms carry history and you feel like you are living along with the family
