Everyone form the bus driver to the tour guide was very pleasant. They made it fun and interesting. The restaurant looked nice but we didn't get a chance to try it. Everything was clean and well maintained. Overall it was a relaxing and fun day for my husband and I.

"Mohawk" Steve as our guide did an excellent job with all of the star studded items in the mansion. You can touch/handle most all of these and that makes the tour special. A beautiful place.

The actually tour was awesome! Out bus driver to the Manson was super nice. But the best was our tour guide Steven Whitson!! He did a wonderful job guiding us and telling us all of the history of the Manson. But honestly the best part was him singing to us. I really hope we hear this young man sing again.

Our tour was guided by none other than Nashville’s very own country legend Vance Nichols, piano player extraordinaire, who entertained us by tickling the ivories while our group viewed the Great Room of Fontanel Mansion – former home of country sensation Barbara Mandrell. I believe Vance told us Fontanel is sometimes called the Hillbilly Biltmore. If I recall Biltmore, they... More

We went to Fontanel after reading about it on trip advisor. We had a great time and enjoyed it immensely. Our tour guide Steven remembered every single one of our names on the tour - at least 20 people and he was kind, friendly, knowledgeable and talented. He sang two of his own songs! Fontanel was the home of Barbara... More

Having moved to Nashville from New Orleans not quite two years ago, I am still exploring the city and what it has to offer as far as visitor attractions. A friend from New Orleans was in town for a business trip and had a few extra days to spend so Fontanel came to mind. I had attended a concert at... More

Our guides Steven and Justin welcomed us with open arms and were so warm and kind. I truly felt that we were visiting someone's home and... More

The Fontanel Inn, north of Nashville is a beautiful B&B; very nice grounds. Furnishings are top notch. Amenities in executive suite like bathroom are excellent. That's where excellence ends. Rated 4 star; priced as a 5. Way over-priced. You expect food and service to reflect that. I'm well-traveled. When I pay these prices I expect what I have received from... More
