Kept in pristine condition, the Inn has period guides. Cabins in rear are also well-kept. Excellent way for children to learn history-adults, as well.

My wife & I visited Kingsport from England to see a good friend who managed to persuade a guide at the Netherland inn to open for us out of season as we could only visit for a short time.

Netherland Inn is a lovely and charming place to visit on the river. A lot of history there. Enjoy the grounds, the Inn, the scenery.

A beautiful 3 story structure that served as a boat yard, stage coach inn and tavern, a home and a boarding house throughout the years and now a fascinating museum along what was back in the day the main route to Western Kentucky and Middle Tennessee.

What a pleasure to have a restored Inn from colonial days, along with many, many extras -- even a replica of a "boat" used to float salt (from Saltville, Virginia) downstream as far away as New Orleans. How King's Boat Yard grew to become Kingsport.

Great part of Tennessee history. Three american presidents stayed here along the Holston River. Worth your time. There is only a limited time they are open so just be sure to check the schedule before you go.

Just adjacent to the Holston River, the Netherland Inn sits on a hill side with good access and plenty of parking. This site has beeen restored to the early days of Kingsport and it reflects nicely the period of time. There are a number of buildings and plenty to see. For those history buff's, it is very historic and worth... More
