You are invited to join the Fontanel Mansion Guided Tour in Nashville.
Visit one of the most beautiful log homes in the world. While touring this log masterpiece, you will be entertained by personal stories of the Mandrell family along with incredible stories of other artists that only music insiders have heard. Barbara Mandrell and husband Ken Dudney had family and entertaining for all ages in mind when they built this magnificent home.
Though the family only lived here for 14 years, you can still feel the presence of Ms. Mandrell and the love that her family shared at Fontanel. If those logs could talk, they would tell the tale of guests who once stayed here. Dick Clark, Minnie Pearl, Eunice and Sargent Shriver, Bob Hope and Oprah Winfrey just name a few of the people that passed through this beautiful home. Fontanel encourages you to strum Buck Owens' guitar, try on Kenny Chesney’s tour jacket, and eat crackers in Barbara Mandrell’s bed. Touch memorabilia from artists like Alabama, Gretchen Wilson, The Eagles, and DeFord Bailey.
Throughout this tour, guests will be led by storytellers and musicians. Visiting Fontanel is a rare experience that only a few chosen people were invited to do, up until now. Fontanel is a home, not a museum. When your visit is over, you will leave as a friend.
