My stay here was like stepping back in time. I could actually rock on the porch while listening to the rain beat down on the tin roof. Very relaxing...like time had just stopped. Wendy and John were marvelous and made me feel right at home. And though the hotel was built in 1914, all of he rooms have been renovated... More

The current owner is renovating the hotel and doing a beautiful job with it. The guest room we stayed in was updated with a completely... More

Wendy and John have restored this beautiful building and given it a warm family heart. We loved staying in a place that has a place in history. Wendy... More

The new owners of the Donoho Hotel are transforming this treasured hotel into a gem! I stayed at the Donoho twice between 1980 and 2000; the rooms were dark, old and out-of-date, and dusty. In recent years, we visited only to enjoy a great meal. Today, we visited again for lunch and were happy to see the renovations and transformation... More

This hotel has been transformed into a lovely place to kick back and relax. Time passes by slow and easy when sitting on the huge wrap around porch in one of their rockers. The updated rooms surpass any newer hotel expectation plus they have character. I also had the pleasure of attending a wonderful southern wedding this past summer at... More
