This is a beautiful estate and I hate I only got to see it during winter. They did have it lovingly decorated with holiday lights all around the property. They moved me to the inside portion of the hotel because of the chilly nights. However,...More
Fabulous visit! Very cozy. We visited with a group of about 18 people and every single one of us just wished we could stay a few more days. If you stay at the Donoho make sure to take advantage of the family style home cooked...More
Old world charm and hospitality that is not found these days! If you want to "go off the grid" for a while and forget the bad in the world, this is the place! There is television and wifi in the main room, just not in...More
Once again the Donoho chefs and kitchen staff did not disappoint! The food was superb, and the meatloaf was the best I've ever had. You can't beat the old world ambience of the vintage dining room and the old world hospitality of the whole staff....More

If you read this article, under 'History' it states: "A hotel owner named Whitley built the first hotel on what is now the Donoho property sometime in the 1890s. Around 1901, the first hotel known as the "Donoho" was built on the property by Whitley's son-in-law, Squire Donoho (1863–1908), whose family had operated a general store in Red Boiling Springs since the 1880s. After Squire Donoho's death, the hotel and property passed into the hands of Whitley's daughter, Tennie, and her husband, Brady Chitwood (1875–1958). The first Donoho Hotel burned in 1915, and the following year the Chitwoods built the present hotel as a replacement."
