With The Inn at Fontanel, the Woods Amphitheater, Pritchard's Distillery, Natchez Hills Winery, Cafe Fontanella, Music City Ziplines by Adventure Works, The Trails and Metro Parks Greenway, it is easy to see why Fontanel is one of Nashville's premier destinations.

I really like the fact they let you sit on the furniture and touch the many items of music memorabilia they have on display. The house is really fun and it's so neat to think of all the famous people that have been there.

I went to the Fontanel for a wedding and it was a blast. Walking through the home was a treat, and dancing on the glass floor above the pool was great!
