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.

I had never really heard of the Fontanel until my boyfriend and I arrived to use the Groupon I found for a tour and wine tasting (I was more excited for the wine than anything else). We arrived on a drizzling Tuesday at around 11am. No one else was there and we had a tour just with the two of... More

I loved watching Barbara Mandrell and her sisters on TV when I was a young girl. My husband and I both love log cabins and this was the perfect combo adventure for us. We also watched a few seasons of Gone Country and had recognized the mansion in those episodes! Our tour guide Danny was so knowledgeable and seemed to... More

We had the BEST Tour guide EVER! Janelle. Never mind that she was a former Top 5 American Idol contestant. She was simply the most genuine, lovely lady. She gave a fantastic tour, almost as if the home were her own. She sang a song at the end of the tour that had my 3 girlfriend and I in tears.... More

Visiting the home that Barbara Mandrell and her family lived in at one time gives insight into how 'down to earth' this family really is.

This was a beautiful spot. 27,000 sq. Foot log home that was built and lived in by Barbara Mandrel and family. Our tour guide was wonderful and a great musician. She was a former contestant on American Idol and sang one if her original songs for us at the end of the tour. A winery on the property gives $5... More

I just started reviewing, so I know this is a late review. We went for the Easter brunch and I must say, we were pretty disappointed. I believe they said it was their first time, so I would be willing to go back, but for the amount we paid, it was a let down. The food, what was left, was... More

This is an awesome place. Worth a trip. You can buy discounted prices on Groupon! Odiss Kohn was our guide. Very knowledgeable. This is a one of a kind place. Loved it! Give yourself 2-2.5 hrs however the tour in 1.5 hrs. Parking is free.

Huge, 22,000, square foot home of country music icon Barbara Mandrel. Oddis, our tour guide, surprised us with a song at the end of the tour. Music is indeed everywhere in Nashville. Interesting look at the cabin, winery, distillery, and gift shop now owned by two music managers of several music icons. I won't spoil it by revealing the awards,... More

Had the best tour guide Stephen!! Beautiful home and love the surrounding woods! Love that you can sit on, touch, pick up things/furniture! Guide is very talented both musically and in memorization, remembering everyone's name on our tour and using our names in conversation! I would highly recommend seeing this beautiful home where country music legend Barbara Mandrell lived and... More
