From your first drive up to the summit of Fountainview Mansion, you will be transported to another time and place, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Fountainview Mansion is located on more than 100 acres of pristine grounds with panoramic views of the Alabama countryside. The Mansion is situated atop the summit of a hill on one of the highest vantage points in Auburn. Fountainview evokes old-world charm and elegance with all the comforts of home. Housing an extensive collection of antiques and objects d’arte from all over the world, visitors experience the grace of living in an English country setting conveniently located within the city limits of Auburn, Alabama.
Fountainview offers un-paralleled guest accommodations, meeting space for corporate and university retreats, church staff planning retreats, weddings, receptions, and parties. Fountainview offers many large public rooms, all with flexible furnishings, to meet nearly every clients need.
Construction of the mansion was begun in 2001 and took approximately 4.5 years to build and was originally designed to be a single family home. As the mansion was nearing completion, the property was sold to a local developer who in turn sold the parcel of land with the mansion to become a luxury inn and special events venue.
The current owners, Gary and Julie Klarenbeek are living proof the God-given dreams can become a reality.
Gary is also Director of Music at Auburn United Methodist Church. Julie is Nurse Manager with Women’s Hope Medical Clinic. In their limited spare time, they enjoy entertaining friends, gardening, reading inspirational books, traveling to the beach in Destin, and spending time with their daughters; Jacquie and her husband Wally and Ashlee, a senior at Auburn University.
