Travelers' Choice
A Luxury Boutique Hotel that opened in February 2014. Inspired by Middle Tennessee farmhouse style, and built to look as if it has always been there, you will find no other luxury hotel as warm and welcoming as the Inn at Fontanel. As part of Southern Living Magazine's 24-year tradition of building an annual Idea House in the south, Fontanel was the chosen site. With The Woods Amphitheater, Pritchard's Distillery the Pepsi Studio Gallery, Cafe Fontanella, Goo Goo Outpost, AdventureWorks Ziplines, 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 were so sad to hear they are closing for 2 years!! It seems perfect to us just the way it is now!! The staff could not have been any better!! They were so warm and kind and Amy did everything to make our stay the absolute best! We stayed in the North Bunkie which was so cute and comfortable! We loved sitting on the beautiful porches in the evening! The breakfast by the personal chef was to die for!!!! The french toast was the best I have ever had!! I'm still trying to figure out how I can get more! Austin was so kind to move all of us and our place settings to the porch so that we could enjoy our breakfast outside. We can not say enough about this place and would return in a heart beat ...unless they change everything :(

Stayed here for 7 nights in September and honestly can't say enough good things about it. Set just far enough out of Nashville to be quiet but near enough to make the commute really short. Everything about this place is 5*, we stayed in the North Bunkie but all the accommodation is stunning. Woke up to a wonderful breakfast made especially for you each morning. The night staff, Amy and Kelly were really lovely but I have to save special praise for Olivia who served our breakfast each morning, she was so friendly and couldn't have helped us more. We will definitely return.

Stayed here for a long weekend. Wanted to be close to Nashville and all it has to offer without all of the chaos. Was so sweet!! We stayed in the King Suite - beautiful and hands down the best shower of any hotel I've ever stayed in!! The staff are so warm and helpful, and the location was quiet and delightful. We walked/ran on the property and enjoyed the nature trails. The chef made breakfasts were yummy - and we enjoyed them outside on the large porch each morning. Couldn't have been more perfect. So sad that they are closing and being sold to a larger hotel chain. Certainly hope that the new owner maintains the same sweet appeal. Couldn't have had a better weekend!!! Thank you to all the staff!!

This place was so much better than we were expecting. What a shame it is closing. Corporate America taking over small businesses once again. This place is great because it is small and cosy with great personalised service. Now they are supposodly turning it into a much bigger resort. What a shame. No wonder hotels are getting so bad. Corporate chains are taking over and overriding cute boutique hotels with great hospitality. I'm sad I'll never get the chance to stay here again,

Amy and Kelly are so very sweet, they make you feel like you are family and have known them for years. I honestly was not too thrilled with Nashville itself but I AM SO IN LOVE with this INN. Such a relaxing country setting only 20 mins from Nashville but felt like a world away. My mom and I stayed in the North bunkie and it is so cute. there is a lot of natural light so if you are a light sleeper you may want to bring a sleeping mask. The beds were so soft and comfy. The AC was ice cold so lovely to fall asleep in. The breakfast was very good , we chose to sit on the porch and watch the view of the birds. After breakfast we used the free bikes to go up to the little creek area. We also used the free golf carts to explore the little trails near the property. We were very surprised to hear that Oct 14 will be there last day open. I pray that the new owners do not ruin the natural beauty that surrounds this peaceful place . That is what people like myself look for is to escape that city hectic life and retouch with nature in a pampered way.Thank you again Kelly and Amy i hope to see you all again in 2 yrs .. You all and your Inn was the HIGHLIGHT of my mom's and i mini getaway.
