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.

Closed on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.

We went here for dinner on Valentine's Day. It seemed king of pricey, but we soon realized as always, dance and music in Nashville is excellent and worth every penny. Also, we had a lot of yummy food and wine pairings during the evening.

This is Opry Hall of Famer Barbara Mandrell's former mansion, the largest log home in the world at 27,000 sq. ft., first assembled elsewhere then shipped to Nashville, with hands on construction by Mandrell's husband. It's a great way to see how the stars live,and the closest many of us will get to a mansion. The tour is informative and... More

Five of us a friends toured the mansion and had a trip to remember due to our tour guide Steven Whitson😍. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable about the house, the family etc he is an amazing artist himself! A Godly man that shared himself with everyone. A true gem! Thanks Steven!

It was fun to peak into the lives of famous people and learn about their experiences. The house was very open. They let you sit on the furniture and touch the accessories. Our tour guide Steven did an excellent job. He is an aspiring song writer who added his own special touch to the tour. We went with three other... More

Did this on a whim and was so glad we did. This is not your usual tour of a famous person's home, you get to touch stuff, take guitars off the walls, sit on furniture, play with the soda fountain, and just make yourself at home. It did help that our guide, Odiss Kohn, was informative, friendly, and just plain... More

This is great value for money. The guide "Otis" was quite a character and the lass serving in the brewery was very knowledgeable. A very pleasing experience but difficult to get to if you don't have your own transport. I was very lucky and a couple on the tour took me back to town rather than trying to find a... More

A surprisingly entertaining experience. We were there with our car club from Wisconsin. The Italian restaurant was able to seat us, 14 people, almost immediately. Great food with a moderately priced menu. The shops have a large variety of items, a whiskey shop, winery, clothing and a zip line. The mansion tour is entertaining and informative for Mandrel fans. Josh,... More

If you remember the 70's and 80's and the Mandrell sisters TV show, you will love this tour. The house is huge and filled with all sorts of memorabilia that you can touch and play. The stories that the guides tell are fun and I would recommend this. There are other venues on the grounds but I only did the... More

Decided last minute to go see the Fontanel. Unfortunately, it was full when we arrived but thankfully three people didn't show up so we got on the tour. Be sure to buy your tickets in advance...retired military discounts available and active duty is free. Loved the tour. Took almost two hours but we were allowed to sit, touch and even... More

I have been many several times. Even with a rock band outside, a country band inside, and a car show going on there is a certain tranquility and enough quiet to talk, which is SO rare in Nashville. I most often come here to eat on the porch in the Italian place (always great service even when over-crowded by a... More
