  • This place is absolutely amazing...great tour! I purchased my tickets on Groupon cause we had a group of eight going and it was a great price as well. Inside the mansion is breath taking, all the memorabilia is amazing. Just wished it was a little longer. The gift shop is pricey on some things in there. The winery and distillery have some great deals on sampling or wine tasting so don't forget to do that while your there! Definitely going back and staying at The Inn 😊
  • The mansion is beautiful, with a wonderful scenic view and full of history. Great place to visit, had an awesome tour guide, Jannell Arthur and we had the distinct pleasure of hearing her sing as well. Was a great tour and a very enjoyable day, will definitely go back for one of the concerts very soon.
  • Would recommend this, to everyone to visit, even if you're not a country western fan, or a Barbara Mandrell fan. You will be amazed, of the history of the mansion, and how it was built. Booking is very easy, and the people there, are very nice, and friendly. Seth was a wonderful, knowledgeable, and very friendly tour guide!!!! Thank you Seth, For everything!!!! Randy
  • Really worth it and very enjoyable. We are pleasantly surprised to find discounted tickets on Groupon! Would love to go again over the holidays and see the Christmas decorations Etc. What God was fun and informative and an joyable musician to boot. Go. You'll be glad you did!
  • A great wedding venue! Beautiful, charming setting. Unique architecture, very interesting history. Wished we were there longer!
