Fontanel Mansion - Review

Fontanel Mansion is tucked away in the rolling hills of the Whites Creek Valley. It is the only country music mansion which allows tourists a glimpse into the lives of great country musicians. It is an attractive 27,000 square foot log home formerly owned by Barbara Mandrell. Barbara Mandrell and her husband, Ken Dudney, built Fontanel in 1987. In 2002, they sold the property and Barbara retired from the music world.

The Inn at the Fontanel is built according to the Middle Tennessee farmhouse style. It is a warm and welcoming Inn which is pet friendly. Visit the Woods Amphitheatre, Prichard’s Distillery, the Pepsi Studio Gallery, and Goo Goo Outpost. The Café Fontanella offers delicious snacks and is a great place to relax after the Adventure Works Zip lines. The Trails and Metro Parks Greenway is free for all, and dog friendly.

The mansion has 20 rooms, 13 bathrooms, 5 fireplaces, 2 kitchens and an indoor pool. There is an indoor shooting range as well. There is a lot of memorabilia on display and this includes personal items as well. They belong mostly to the Mandrell family and some from the current owners Dale Morris and Marc Oswald.

Fontanel Mansion, Nashville Reviews

  • Visited Restaurant, bar and gift shop on several occasions. Fun atmosphere, good menu: dinner menu, pizzas, different flavors of chicken wings, bar serving mixed drinks and a variety of beers. Haley and the other waitresses are top notch! Haven't been to the museum & Zip line yet!

  • Came to tour "Glow" it was setup very nicely and pumpkins were amazing. Price was a little high and other activities left a lot to desire. Went with a date and my 3 year old. I would say great for kids or romantic date or family outing. We had a great time. Food/drink options were lacking and expensive. I am sure other events have better food and drinks. Hope in future to take my date back for other events at the mansion.

  • Zip line. Zip on 8 lines thru the southern hillside of Fontanel. Be prepared for some uphill hikes over unstable ground. It is the south so be prepared for spiders, poison ivy and maybe snakes. Guides are knowledgeable and funny. I can say that I am not very athletic and I did fine. Be prepared to come in backwards and land on your rear. I would say that for the experience it a bit steeply priced compared to other adventures I have been on.

  • The food was very good, the service was less than stellar! It wasn't even busy and yet the Servers couldn't keep up. Our glasses and cups were empty for aLong time. She seemed more interested in the couple out on the porch than any one else. There several servers and a Manager, but no one was interested in seeing the customer was taken care of. I might eat hear again, if I have three hours for lunch or dinner! As a Sous Chef, I have seen Great Servers and those that are just hired help, this restaurant has hired help. What they need are Servers.

  • What an amazing trail to walk with our dog! The stream was beautiful and there were nice benches to take a break, and the scenery was mind blowingly lovely! Alone or with a dog, you should go! People can Zipline there too, and a huge mansion sites in the middle that was amazing.
