Inn at Fontanel

Inn at Fontanel in Whites Creek, TN


Formerly a Southern Living Idea House, the Inn at Fontanel is like visiting a real life Better Homes and Garden’s spread.

The picturesque farmhouse is situated at the end of a shaded tree lined driveway, as we drove up to the beautiful estate, the only thing I wanted was a glass of sweet tea to enjoy on the expansive 2,700 square foot porch.  When we arrived at main farmhouse, we noticed the other guests mingling about and enjoying the daily happy hour treats.  The staff greeted us with the kind of southern hospitality you see in movies, and we immediately felt at home. 

The six spacious suites are expertly furnished, with cozy accents that beg you to curl up in front of the fireplace with a good book.  I’d recommend bringing your notebook and camera, because the rooms are straight out of Pinterest.  Two of them are pet friendly, so you’re furry best friend can come too!

We spent our mornings sipping coffee and enjoying complimentary breakfast made to order by the inn’s private chef.  I suggest spending a few extra minutes in the commons area, which is open 24 hours a day, to enjoy the beautiful sunshine that pours in from the giant windows. 

Reserve an afternoon to use one of the inn’s four complimentary bicycles to visit the neighboring distillery and winery.  Afterwards, recharge in the suite’s luxurious soaking tub before taking a quick uber ride into downtown Nashville for dinner.
