You might think you've had your fill of touring country music homes. Until you have found a way to fit the Fontanel Mansion & Farm into the list of places you've been, you are hardly finished. The main entry way being a closed off and gated community might be a little off putting.
However, the individuals at Fontanel have keys and they have access to free shuttle serves. These shuttle services will deliver you right to the front door of the mansion. The best part is these services are offered every day of the week.
What is the Fontanel Mansion Anyway?
This is a mansion that was constructed for a woman named Barbara Mandrell and her family in the 1980's. The Mandrell owned the property until the year 2002. At that time, they sold it to Marc Oswald and Dale Morris who are the current owners. If you happen to watch a CMT show called Gone Country, chances are pretty good you would recognize this mansion from video clips and photos.
The Mansion is filled with a lot of unique items that belonged to the Mandrell family. This even includes their family bible. The mansion is also filled with a lot of country memorabilia which makes it a place every lover a country music has on their list of places they need to visit before they pass away.
Trails and Dining
There are also walking trails which are free and available for the general public to enjoy during regular business hours. You do have to check in before you can go strolling down the trails though. The Fontanel Restaurant is also open to the general public seven days a week, so you can grab something nice to eat.
The Fontanel Mansion & Farm is nothing like any other country music tour you've ever been on. That's for sure!
