Linden, Tennessee is a picture-perfect small town, full of quaint shops, restored buildings, an award-winning hotel, and a historic Main Street that draws visitors from across the country.

Float on Downtown

The town sits on the banks of the Buffalo River, just a few minutes’ walk from downtown, where folks drink in the town’s natural beauty as they float through some of Tennessee’s prettiest scenery in kayaks and canoes. And the Tennessee River is close, too, perfect for boating and watersports.

Visitor Favorite

If you’re wondering what it’s like to make a 180-degree shift to life in Linden, just ask the Dumonts. The couple visited from the East Coast in 2007 and saw a rough-around-the-edges town with great potential. They got a great bargain on a large plot of land and made an offer on the spot, then got to work sinking their hearts and resources into restoring what’s now known as the Commodore Hotel in downtown Linden. It has become the heart of downtown, where locals and visitors gather to grab a bite at the restaurant, hear local talent at the music cafe, or sip a cocktail at the speakeasy lounge.
