Fontanel Mansion Reviews
Stopped and found out a company bought Fontanel Mansion and no longer gives tours. The Mansion can be rented for weddings/parties etc. more »
This is a must see place when visiting Nashville. We came from Scottsdale to just visit this place because we have heard so many things about it. It was worth the trip. more »
Really neat, only open for private events, we peeked in window the pool area/ dance floor, super neat the place I think acrylic to cover pool then it's used as a dance floor, our zip guide told us all about other things the have in this mansion.
Our tour guide was awesome! The mansion is beautiful. If you are a fan of country music, it's a must see for memorabilia! Definitely suggest visiting the winery and getting a wine slushie! They are made with sangria and red wine. We enjoyed our drinks outside on the back porch area overlooking the grounds. Very relaxing way to spend almost 3 hours.
