In addition to Mandrell family keepsakes, the current owners’ collection of country memorabilia is on display: browse one of a kind mementoes from music stars like Alabama, Kenny Chesney, Big & Rich, and Gretchen Wilson.

The tour at the Fontanel Mansion Tour was outstanding! We had Steve as our guide who made us feel so welcomed and remembers everyone's name. While in the living room, he invited us all to sit around or mosey around to look at all the decor, if you wish while he played the guitar and sang about two songs that were just awesome! He is truly talented. It was like visiting good friends! The spirit there was truly Nashville, very comfortable and enjoyable. By the time the tour ended and he walked us to the bus, we felt like family. He told us that he decorates the home for Christmas and we plan to be back in Nashville at Christmas. We definitely will come again to see the beautiful decorations at Fontanel and enjoy the holiday season. My husband and I participate in a lot of tours, but this was so nice we will cherish the memory always. Our very best wishes to Steve and his bride.

This was a wonderful tour seeing the former home of Barbara Mandrell. It was a huge, unique home built with unusual logs. Enjoyed learning the history of the home and how it is used today.

One of my very favorite tours ! You actually are told to sit on the furniture and touch items in the house! The guide Odtis was superb.

This was an interesting tour. I enjoyed touring different homes and this one was a log home with it's own elegance. The tour was fun because we also learned some history about the Mandrell family. Our tour guide, Steven was very knowledgeable and a talent in his own right. He sang us a beautiful song during the tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in touring different types of homes or has a love for country music and history.

Enjoyed hearing about how this home was constructed. Found that being able to look some on your own and to touch items or sit on furnishings delightful. Tour just the right length.

This was the most memorable experience! The family feel was only enhanced when we were blessed enough to have Jaime Barbara's daughter as our tour guide! The property is beautiful and the family stories of truly one of the most talented country music stars can not be topped. Loved every minute of it. The restaurant has great food and the entertainment was really good. The people that work there are all sweet and helpful. We will be going back again some day!
