  • This home and surrounding structure's were very interesting..... The best part of the tour was a young man, our tour guide Seth Carlson 👍thank you Seth for the beautiful song you played and sang !!!! AMAZING
  • I went here for Easter brunch that was served buffet style. The food was good, but the areas were on different levels. It was very awkward to carry plates down narrow stairs. I was also seated over the covered pool. It was very humid and uncomfortable. I would recommend sitting on the lower level.
  • Love to go there and zip line there's a hiking trail there's also Barbara Mandrell's mansion oh and I feel to mention there's also a prichard's Distillery on the premises with free tasting and the bourbon cream is off the chain love this place just to go and hang out
  • Very interesting more modern history. Tour guide Steve was great with many insights and stories of mansion.
  • Upscale experience, great getaway. Very attentive staff.
