  • Me and 10 of my sorority sisters went to Nash for a girls weekend. I loved the music in the city, but my second fave thing was this tour. I loved the architecture and being able to really go in and to...  more »
  • Attended a wedding here, everything was fine, but seemed to be a little over the top, felt like I was in Gatlinburg versus Nashville- I hope that is not the direction new growth is taking in Nashville...  more »

  • Absolutely love the mansion and tour. Very rarely can you go to such a rare, iconic place and be encouraged to participate and actually touch historical items. The only flaw I noticed was in a lot of the fixtures, due to age and lack of polishing. I know these are the first items of any home to start looking dated, however that doesn't excuse them from sparkling. My wife and I go to CafĂ© Fontanel often and always brag to others about how close we live to a wonderful and beautiful place. You never know who might show.
  • This place is awesome, would deff go back
  • Tons of history, art, and a Must Experience in Nashville!
  • On point.
