With The Inn at Fontanel, the Woods Amphitheater, Pritchard's Distillery, Natchez Hills Winery, Cafe Fontanella, Music City Ziplines by Adventure Works, The Trails and Metro Parks Greenway, it is easy to see why Fontanel is one of Nashville's premier destinations.

Barbara Mandrell's 30,000 sq ft "log cabin" is something to see when in Nashville. Build from pine trees from Montana (actually put together in Montana and then disassembled) it was transported by 26 trucks to Tennessee and rebuilt. During the first few years the expansion...More

The mansion itself is pretty interesting and our guide did a good job explaining things. He even sang us a song he wrote!! The van we rode in up to the house was less than desirable to say the least. Probably should ditch that van....More

Sort of disappointed in the mansion. Expected something more grand. I guess I just didn't like the log cabin feel. If I would not have been there for a business event I would not suggest going there. Sort of boring.

We were a bit fooled by the reviews and we're surprised at how we got a real glimpse to some current big hitters and active participants in the music industry. We were treated to singing, guitar playing and song writing. On top of that the...More
