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 tour! Loved that you could sit on the furniture, take pictures and even take guitars off the wall! The group size was just right so you didn't feel rushed and could ask questions. A fun place to visit!

In this beautiful secluded mansion there are many things to see and touch. Unlike other places where you cannot touch anything or sit anywhere this is the exception. Our guide Danny was excellent, gave us many inside details and allowed us to look at our leisure. He waited until everyone was within hearing range to explain things and was very... More

Our guide, Jennifer was great. This 27000 sq ft log cabin mansion is spectacular. The tour is hands on .... you can touch objects in the home, strum a guitar from a Nashville Star, eat crackers on Barbra's bed, listen to your guide belt out a song .....cool tour.

This little 27000 sq.ft. log cabin is a great place to feel and touch the house and décor. I got a chance to wear a Kenny Chesney jacket - way cool!!

My sister lives in Nashville and wanted to go ziplining for the first time to celebrate turning 40. Her friend traveled from Florida (a 10-hour drive) and I traveled from Missouri (a 3-hour drive) on May 22 to join her at the Fontanel. The two of them prepaid online for their experience to begin at 5 p.m., while I waited... More

We love log homes so it would be hard for us to not have liked the tour. That said, Mohawk Steve was an outstanding guide...talented too... I won't give that part away. The freedom the guides allow is very cool, as others have mentioned you can take pictures while sitting on the furniture as well as play some of the... More

The tour was great. The guide was very good. They allow you to take photos, sit on the furniture and play a guitar. Very interesting and it was a good length for the price. Easy to get to from Nashville. They also have a winery and restaurant and gift shop.

This tour was really interesting, our tour guide Steve 'Mohawk', was very well informed, played 'the dance' from Garth Brook's for us, and overall had a great attitude. My wife and I are not huge Barbara Mandrel fans but learned a lot and loved the ambiance.
