“Excellent time! Highly Recommend! 5 star!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

My wife and I stayed here for nearly a week from 6/23-6/27/14 and from beginning to end we truly felt like we were at home. Amy, Dusty, Cleveland, and Wes were all extremely friendly and professional. The room itself was very clean and elegant. The free "continental breakfast" is anything but continental... in a GOOD way :). Pancakes, french toast, omelettes...they are all delicious and cooked to order by the chef. There is a small number of units so you get a lot of personal attention and individualized touches. I will without hesitation recommend this place to anyone looking at staying "in Nashville". It is only about 15 minutes to drive downtown so it was a great mixture of "bed and breakfast" homey feel while also driving a short distance downtown to have a fun night on the town. As an FYI to readers, we stayed in the "South Bunkie", which was perfect for two even though it has two beds.

Room Tip: We stayed in the "South Bunkie", which was perfect for two even though it has two beds.

My husband and I generally stay at Union Station for our Anniversary, but with no rooms available I started looking for a place that "could come close". I stumbled on the last available room at Fontanel (the King Lower Suite). I thought... Why not try it. It had been a Southern Living Idea House, I own a real estate brokerage...I thought it might be something different. I was blown away by the comfortable home like feel, the personal service (Jarod was amazing), and the beautiful and immaculate suite. This resort will be my annual go to place to celebrate my anniversary... Sorry Union Station :(
The restaurant had the best tomato sauce and meatball stramboli and a great atmosphere with live music. The cooked to order breakfast was fantastic! You really feel like you are at a private bed and breakfast. We toured the Fontanel mansion and the best part was our guide, STEVEN WHITSON. He WOWED us by singing some of his original songs. This guy is the next Josh Turner and someone should sign this guy to a record deal FAST! We will go back just to see him again! I only hope that next year we will be able to get a room for our anniversary... There are only 6 suites so I'll be keeping my fingers crossed. I can't recommend this hotel enough! The only suggestion
I have is... Put in a pool, hot tub, and firepit

This is the most service-oriented place I've ever visited. We were treated so well we didn't want to leave. I would highly recommend it to anyone!!!! Don't miss the chance to stay there....and tour the mansion and the distillery! Dine at the cafe too.

I am a hotel snob. My husband and I love quality, character and service and typically gravitate (when we can) to high-end boutique lodging. We just wrapped up a week's vacation at a family home in Hilton Head, and due to some rain, decided to hit the road early and make the trip home a 2-day trip instead of our typical 1-day power drive. Not knowing where we would feel like stopping, we decided late-day on Nashville, so I started checking Tripadvisor ratings, originally planning to stay downtown. After reading various reviews and checking a few websites, we decided to give the Inn at Fontanel a try. We were fortunate to secure a room that someone else had cancelled, and it was the best overnight we have had in some time. the Inn is extremely comfortable, amazingly beautiful and very service-oriented (Jared, Amy and Wes were all incredible). The architecture, decor and overall characteristics of the property are all remarkable, and the developer obviously has a great vision for something very special. I would highly recommend the Inn for couples, a girls getaway or a family treat. My 11-year old son (who typically has to be pried away from electronics) is already asking when we can go back. Like him, I can't wait.

Room Tip: we stayed in the carriage house which was a comfortable fit for my husband, myself and our 11 year o...

My husband and I stayed at The Inn at Fontanel over Memorial Day Weekend, which also happened to be our 1 year wedding anniversary. From the moment we arrived to when we left, the entire staff was so friendly and accommodating. The cottages are GORGEOUS and the main kitchen/living room is stunning. We had our puppy with us (black lab) and he enjoyed running around in the open field. One morning, we enjoyed breakfast and coffee on our front porch and the other morning we went into the main kitchen...each time the food was delicious! On Saturday, we ventured into the city and they scheduled a car service to pick us up/drop us off. We LOVE everything about this boutique hotel and will DEFINITELY be back. 5+++ stars!

Room Tip: All are excellent!

The staff were so friendly and helpful. Our room was gorgeous - stayed in the upper suite. We escaped to the front porch alone and heard the rainfall on the tin roof. Gazed into the hillside from the porch swing. Walked along a creek to the restaurant for a wonderful meal. Even got to witness a photo shoot for the food network! Breakfast was so easy and so very good. Loved every minute of it. It was luxurious but not stuffy. We felt so comfortable and welcomed. Highly recommend it!

The accommodations were outstanding but the staff made this trip the most memorable and the happiest we had in a long time. The rooms are just first class with the greatest Turkish-T towels
and the longest pouch (swings and great couches) around the entire building. The Director of
Guest services Kellie Lapelle was just outstanding during our entire visit and Amy the afternoon
Mgr. could not do enough for us and made us feel like part of her family. Wille the guest Mgr in the AM is just fantastic and went over the top for serve to us. The Chef's at the breakfast were great and the meals was very bountiful plus like Grandma made. ( try the French toast).

Our dog cooper had the run of the place and the staff treated him not like a dog but like one of our family who was the KING ( by the way he is the King)

The café almost next to The Inn is great food with music almost every night and the Tour of the Mansion is not to be missed. Again a top notch place with a over the top staff. Will be back!!!
