This was our second visit. It is a great tour. Steven Whitson was our guide and he is fantastic. He remembers people’s names and makes the tour very interesting. He also has a great voice.

If you like to see luxury, this place is a prime example. Once the homeplace of Barbara Mandrell, it's the epitome of how a country music legend could live. Largest log cabin the USA but the inside is far from rustic. Interesting and informative tour....More
