I attended a private tour and brunch here last weekend. Wow what a beautiful home. I’ve always wanted a log home and this one is to die for. The setting is beautiful. The staff here is super friendly and helpful.

Tour led by Steve W., singer/songwriter. Loved the ability to take photos, play celebrity guitars, etc. Wish there were more focus on the Mandrell's.
