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.

We purchased our admission tickets on Groupon and received Admission for 2 with wine tasting for 2 for $39. Sr. ticket and wine tasting normally $54. When we got to Nashville, we called Fontanel and made our reservation for the 10am Sunday tour. After receiving our tickets, we boarded a shuttle and were driven up to the mansion. It's very...

I have been a fan of the Mandrell sisters since the beginning of their careers. Their singing and musical instrumental talents are great to listen to and pleasing to the ears. Her former home is large and beautiful inside and outside grounds. The tour guide that we had was quite knowledgeable of the family.

I really enjoyed visiting the huge log home. I wasn't expecting much and was surprised by how enjoyable the tour was. Lots of Country Music awards and items also. The tour guides are all singers. Mohawk Mike did a great job.

Fontanel Mansion, formerly the home of Barbara Mandrell, is a fantastic place to visit. It is a 33,000 square foot log cabin and is filled with the Mandrell family memorabilia as well as memorabilia from other country artists. What made this trip so special though, was the way we were treated. Steven Whitson was our tour guide, and he took... More

Get away from the crazy downtown streets and head over to Fontanel Mansion. Visit the Natchez Hills winery, go zip lining, eat at the restaurant, check out Barbara Mandrells mansion, which is now known as Fontanels Mansion. There is also a distillery and hiking trails to enjoy.

Very interesting place to visit. A beautiful home. And our guide Steve (with the Mohawk)was great. Informative and friendly and very talented.He played piano and sang for us while we checked out the main room. The main room was filled with memorabilia and signed guitars from other Country performers. There is also a distillery and winery you can visit. Try... More

We were looking for something a little different to do in Nashville. We did this tour, which is actually a tour of the 27,000 sf log home of Barbara Mandrel. This is a gorgeous home and you get to see everything. Steven was our tour guide and he was awesome. Great guide!
