LINDEN, Tenn. – The Historic Commodore Hotel Collection of properties has some great suggestions for the beautiful Middle Tennessee and Tennessee River Trail area. Here are some romantic getaway ideas to explore in the Linden area:
Accommodations: Stay in the Historic Commodore Hotel in Linden, which has been rated one of the best places to stay in Tennessee. You can also book a room at the newly-renovated Miss Berdie’s Boarding House. The restoration of these properties was recently named the catalyst of Downtown Linden’s Main Street makeover. For a step back further in time, Commodore owners Michael and Kathy Dumont just finished restoring an 1892 Victorian property as a bed and breakfast. Located 18 miles from Linden, The Commodore Inn at Clifton is located in the quaint town of Clifton alongside the Tennessee River. Your getaway will include being greeted by a rose petal heart on your bed and hand-made chocolates in your room.
Hiking: Take a hike and find the perfect place for a picnic. Lady Finger Bluff is just 12 miles from Linden. Gorgeous views of the majestic Tennessee River make this 2.6 mile hike a worthwhile effort. Legend has it a lady leapt off the bluff in despair after she lost her lover. For your statement of everlasting love, a selfie will suffice.
Farm-to-Fork Dinner & Bonfire: The owners of the Commodore also have scheduled tours of their 400-acre Ridgehaven Farms, five miles from the hotel, which has an abundance of creek trails, historical cemetery tour, petting zoo experiences and other eco-adventures. End your tour with a bonfire and meal including locally harvested foods cooked over the fire.
Waterfalls & Caves: Enjoy the sounds and solitude of a waterfall in secluded woods or visit the mouth of a cave. Ridgehaven Farms has several small streams and waterfalls. A winter waterfall hike is particularly enjoyable as you pass caves and a fishpond.
Downtown Linden: Explore the unique downtown Linden shops and artisans co-op. Warm up at a coffee shop. You can end the day with a cocktail or glass of wine or at the Commodore's Speakeasy Lounge.
Dine: The Commodore will offer delicious Valentine’s menu items cooked with the freshest available ingredients. When available, live music from local and regional musicians makes nights especially memorable. Dining reservations are recommended since the Commodore has an intimate dining room that can seat 22 couples.
