I really enjoyed this tour! Our guide, Steven, was so sweet and informative. He did a great job memorizing our names and made us feel right at home. It is nice to go to a museum and be able to touch things or even sit on couches, etc. I also loved that he sang for us. He did an excellent... More

You can go kick pack on the lawn and watch a concert. The neat thing about it to me is this is Barbra Mandrells home that she has opened up for all to see

Was there for a celebration of promotion of a friend and the birthday of another friend. Sonja Hopkins was singing jazz and turned the place out with her singing. Everyone should check for her next visit and plan your own at the same time.

This facility is amazing. They have expanded to include a nice Café Fontanel Itallian Rest. zip line, a luxury boutique hotel, their very own Goo Goo outpost, outdoor concert venue and a new Pritchards distillery opening soon. New hotel is in the works, as well. Something for everyone.

Beautiful home and property. I loved the tour guides and being in a "museum" where it is literally hands on. You can pick up a guitar, sit on the sofa, etc.

The house has a lot of interesting history. And of course it's always fun to see how the stars get to live. I am concerned about the new plans to build a hotel right next door. I think they are making a mistake by trying to commercial it too much.

The musical history here is pretty cool....however the place needs some work- and the fact they say they are going to build a hotel right next to the home is going to ruin the aura of the place - very unfortunate- go see this place now before this happens!

I enjoyed the tour of the mansion (it is actually a huge log cabin). It was different and interesting. If you like country music and interested in how some of the country music stars have lived in Nashville, then you will like this tour. Otherwise it may not appeal to you. I rated it 4 stars because it was nice... More

Stephen W. was my tour guide, and he was fantastic. He is very personable, friendly, and talented. The tour teaches you a lot about the Mandrell family and current owners of the mansion. I would definitely recommend; the restaurant on the property was very good as well!
