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.

Our tour guide Steve was fantastic. There were only 4 of us on the tour, very informative and interactively. Steve sang us a song while we were allowed to sit on the sofa and listen to him play. Great times!!

The tour was simply dull. There was one highlight which was when the tour guide sang two of his original songs - but you can see that in town.

We loved the fontanel tour. Highlight was that Jaime, Barbara Mandrel's daughter was our guide. She told us all about the family and living there. Really great place. Good winery too. I bought 3 bottles. High light of our trip

Our tour guide was Steven. He was very informative, knowledgeable and funny. Not only does he know all about Fontanel, he seems to be well connected in the music industry. You can't go wrong with this tour. It's only $24 and you get to see Barbara Mandrell's house that she lived in for many years.

We have done several mansions in the Nashville area on our various trips there. Fontanel is one of the more interesting (especially since it was built not that long ago, so it does not have that many years of history). Our guide Stephen was top-notch. Like so many young people in Nashville, he is hoping to make it big in... More

This former mansion, of Barbara Mandrell's is very impressive. Located just northeast of Nashville (in city limits I believe), it was easy to get to. Parking is on location and you will be shuttled to the home. Tickets must be reserved in advance, as they often sell out or have events happening. I had no idea that a huge log... More

Steve was our guide, he did a great job of showing us around the home. The tour is very interactive so you can look at and touch items in the home: Hold guitars of famous singers, see Barbara's dressing room, ectopic. Well worth the trip out of downtown to see this fantastic property. Afterwards we ate at Cafe Fontainebleau and... More

Our group of 25 senior adults loved our tour of Fontanel with our guide, Ben. We highly recommend the attraction to anyone who remembers Barbara Mandrell and her music.
