On the way to Nashville, my family stopped for a night at the Donoho Hotel. Before he goes off to college, we wanted our 18 year old son to experience staying in a country inn and eating country cooking prepared the way my wife and I remembered it when we were kids. Oh my . . . were our expectations... More

This hotel is adorable. Just the right amount of beautiful antiques, cozy rooms, unbelievable prices and newly refurbished bathrooms! We stayed for one night, sat on the patio and drank some wine from the Red Barn Winery, slept in our cozy little rooms, drank our morning coffee while rocking on the porch and then came running when we heard the...

It felt like we were staying with family. Quiet, cozy, beautiful, clean, and very friendly. Wendy and John are amazing, and extremely good hosts. We had a big country breakfast every morning with all the fixins. So good! Those biscuits tho....heaven! There were no t.v. or phones in the room, however they had good wifi. To be honest, it doesn't... More

We had lunch at the Donoho this past Sunday. The food was wonderful, served family style. Staff was super friendly, very attentive, and the atmosphere was great. It's very apparent that much recent work has gone into sprucing up this wonderful old hotel recently. The surroundings were immaculate. I am now inspired to want to spend a weekend there in... More

Classic bed and breakfast. Great food and hospitality. Owner doing a great job of refurbishing and updating throughout the hotel. Maybe the dogs next door would no longer be an issue, though they didn't bother me at night as they did my wife. Super comfortable beds. Perfect for getting away from the world for a weekend. Great pricing also.

Loved it! We are going to make this a yearly retreat. Ms Wendy is the most hospitable hostess that I've ever meet and Mr John is a wonderful host himself. The rooms are very nice and clean. If you wish to have a nice, peaceful get away this is the place. Highly recommended! Thank you for treating us like family.... More

We had a wonderful 50th class reunion for 64 classmates and spouses at the Donoho. Wendy and John were very accommodating, served delicious food, and the atmosphere was just perfect. Several stayed for the weekend and the lobby, dining room and guest were comfortable, very clean and attractive at a reasonable price. The Donoho staff and little Brinkley went out... More

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 Donoho Hotel is a beautiful old hotel from the glory days of Red Boiling Springs. It was built in the early 1900s so that visitors could come "take" the sulphur water for health benefits. 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
