Established in 1914, The Donoho Hotel is steeped in tradition. As you drive over Salt Lick Creek onto the  grounds you see over 100 years of rich history. It is the last of the great white frame hotels with full-length two-story verandas.

After the first Donoho Hotel burned, the current structure opened in 1914. What brought tourist to this rural Tennessee town were the potential  curative powers of the mineral waters found in the area.


The Salt Lick Creek runs through the grounds of the Donoho Hotel.

This began in the 1840’s after the Civil War ended and mountain spring resorts became the vacation destination for people all across the United States.
