New Business Motivations: Small Town Revisions

One of my favorite towns as of the past year has become Clifton, TN. Why? Because when we pulled into town to look at property on Memorial Weekend of 2020, we found the town was a bit, well… let just say a bit empty.

In 2019, a couple from California moved to town! They purchased the Clifton Marina Bar & Grill. The result of this purchase, encouraged small business growth in the meantime. Christopher and Stacy Huntingford put their hearts into the management of the marina, and their next step was to purchase the building at 100 Main, which is now called the Landing. This building is now luxury (yes… I call it luxury, ’cause I’m fancy, like that…) apartments overlooking the Tennessee River that are available for rent on AirBNB. Who wouldn’t want to stay here! Check it out and The Landing at 100 Main. Say Hi to Melanie Oberg, the property manager. She’s a wonderful hostess! Then, take a short walk to the Clifton Marina for great music, food, and cocktails!

In the year since we started visiting Clifton… other small businesses are popping up on Main Street. Riverside Nutrition offers great smoothies and protein shakes, and they are right next to The Landing. In addition, I’ve also noticed All American Hair Styles, offering Spa services to the community.

I can’t wait to go back and see if any other businesses have opened. I have a feeling this little town is about to bloom!

The views of Clifton, TN are simply amazing! Who wouldn’t want to go here!

I'm a Michigan Girl, born and raised. I'm a little out of practice with my writing skills, but I love to travel to small towns in the United States, and sometimes beyond! My fiance' and I just bought property on the Tennessee River in Clifton, TN. Once I got exploring the town, I realized what a rich charming southern history was behind this place. I can't wait to go back so I can take pictures tell you all about it! There's a few Michigan favorites as well, including my home town of Elk Rapids, Michigan, and Torch Lake (The 3rd Most Beautiful Lake in the World according to legend, which I whole heartedly agree with.) Oh... and a little warning... I'm a proud dog mom, as well... so there may be a few great pictures of my sweet little Havanese, Daisy Mae, included in my travels. She's a great little companion travel girl!
