Our visit to Fontanel was the best tour we went on during our visit to Nashville. I brought my mother and grandmother who are huge Barbara Mandrell fans! We had an absolutely fantastic experience. 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

We were impressed with the expansive Fontanel Mansion which was built by Barbara Mandrell and her husband! Definitely worth the short trip out of downtown Nashville. Hands-on viewing of the 27,000 SF log cabin (mansion). Also greatly enjoyed the Prichards's Distillery tour and tastings - we met Mr. Pritchard himself! Much more on the estate including a great café and... More

An experience well worth visiting, even if it is a little overpriced. You don't get to see such grand architecture often, especially in the rustic log cabin mode.

Great tour! Steven Whitson, the tour guide, is not only very knowledgable about the Mandrells, but also has a great voice. What an extra surprise to listen to him sing in the Great Room. What a fantastic place to see. I recommend it for everyone.
