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.

To be able to see, touch, hold, play the many instruments owned by some of country's greatest artist was such a treat. The mansion is incredible, the singing tour guide was awesome and the grounds of this pace are worth the trip.

We went there for Mother's Day last day and we enjoyed the brunch. The servers were very patient and helpful. It's a beautiful home. It would be nice if it was a bed and breakfast.

The "house" was very unique. It was so cool that we could walk around and touch the guitars,etc... Only issue is that each of the rooms was very warm, we turned on the ceiling fans, but they had to be shut off, as they were blowing out the food warmers. Staff and foodd were fantastic.

This was one of the best of tours my husband and I have been on! Amazing tour that is over an hour long. So many cool stories about this house and um you can try on Kenny Chesney's jacket! There is much more to this house than just being Barbara Mandrell's old home, a lot of modern things going on... More

We had Easter brunch here. I have two main complaints. One is the food was spread out over two floors in three rooms. The stairs were very steep. There was an elevator that you operated yourself. Didn't try it. My main complaint was that the food was not labeled and there were no servers monitoring the food stations, so you... More

The tour and grounds are great. I am not a big country music fan or do not know much about Barbara Mandrell but the tour was still very interesting. It was fun to see current music memorabilia as well as the house. Our tour guide was informative, knowledgable and fun. After the tour we did the two mile hike that... More

So great to walk through this home and be encouraged to take guitars off the wall, sit on Gretchen Wilson's ATV and try on Kenny Chesney's jacket. The icing on the cake was Steven Whitson. Great guy and awesome singer.

We used the Groupon deal to buy tickets. Otherwise the ticket prices are too high. The mansion was very large and full of interesting rooms that show the tourist how rich people lived in the 80's and 90's. Barbara Mandrell was the prior owner of the mansion. The current owners have added a concert venue on the property.

The tour was great. Able to touch everything. Take the guitars off the wall and play or just pose with for a picture. Our tour guide Bradley gave us an original song and his story. Saw him twice in "Book of Mormon" in a traveling Broadway company. Home was beautiful and the stories were great. Definitly a place to visit.
