Birmingham-based Doster Construction Company has broken ground on the new Paris Landing State Park Inn.

Construction is expected to be complete in 2020.

The first phase of the project will include the demolition of the existing Paris Landing State Park Inn. The second phase will include the construction of the new hotel — an 81,000 square foot facility with 65 guest rooms, conference and meeting space, a restaurant, and outdoor and indoor pools.

“The new facility will create a space that the people of Henry and Stewart counties, and to a
greater extent Tennessee, will be proud of for years to come,” said Goodwyn Mills Cawood’s
Architect Patrick Neuber. “Our goal for this project is to create something that speaks to the
unique nature of Paris Landing State Park and showcases the special views of Kentucky Lake. Creating a sense of place will help this facility meet the needs of locals and draw tourists to continue to allow the park to have a positive influence on the local economy.”

The building design accentuates the picturesque waterfront views of Kentucky Lake while
supporting the park’s marina activities. Its proximity and central location to other park features will allow guests to maximize their stay and take advantage of all the amenities the park has to offer.

“I am very excited to be a part of the Paris Landing inn project,” said Dustin Crouch with Doster. “I grew up just down the highway from the inn and spent many summer days out on the lake and around the park. It means so much to me to be able to come back home and build something at the lake for everyone to enjoy for years to come.”
