This tour is a must see. Had an excellent tour guide. Mansion is very different. Sylvia Schmidt Sylvan Lake, Alberta
We stopped here with absolutely no knowledge of the area or the mansion; just saw the brown sign along interstate 24 and decided to pull over. It's a few miles off the highway, so you have to want it to actually make it here. We were really surprised that it's a really nice restaurant, distillery, (very touristy) gift shop, and... More
This tour was great! Steve was an excellent tour guide! Seeing this home was a dream come true for a lifelong Barbara Mandrell fan and a great way to spend my birthday! The tour was unlike any other - as one reviewer said it was literally hands on! There wasn't anyone there saying don't touch that, and between stories of... More
Steve M. Gave my group a wonderful tour of the mansion yesterday. I will return when ican and suggest to all my family and friends.

We had an enjoyable couple of hours at the Fontanel. The tour guide we had was exceptional, and did a great job of explaning the design of the home, and how the Mandrell Family lived. It was a unique experience to see a 1980s Mansion - its easy to see large homes where the wealthy lived in the 18th or... More
