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.

The mansion is beautiful! Absolutely amazing interior and exterior. Our tour guide was the talented and gifted, Steven Whitson, songwriter, singer/musician yet so humble, knowledgeable and informative about the history of the home and family! I highly recommend this place to visit and enjoy!

A friend had recommended we take the Fontanel Mansion. It was a nice drive from south of Nashville, the area was pretty and the tour was good. My husband, a fan of country music, enjoyed the tour more than I did. The house was impressive and it was nice that some of the family items were still around. I would... More

A group of friends and I visited the mansion today. We were warmly greeted then driven to the mansion by a very nice driver where we met our "Tur" guide Steven Whitson..... he was wonderful. Before getting off the bus, he asked everyone's name and that made the tour more personal as he called us by name for the next... More

While the house from the outside is stunning as you drive up, and the grandeur of the great room is beautiful, this was an underwhelming tour for me personally. I think if you were a big Barbra Mandrell fan it would have been more entertaining to be in her house. It was fun to see the architecture and hear about... More

Groupon offered a tour of Fontanel. My wife and I decided to give it a try. What a great decision that was! This is one of the best tours I have ever experienced. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and talented (He played the piano and sang for us in Fontanel's large entertainment room). The house was amazing! The tour was... More

Very enjoyable tour (led by Ben) of this 33,000 square foot log cabin, designed and built for Barbara Mandrell and her family. This is a "hands on" tour where you're encouraged to touch things, sit in the chairs, and even eat crackers in Barbara's bed! One thought as you plan your day...If you want to tour (and have a tasting)... More
