Don't let the winding single lane road deter you from experiencing the beauty, serenity, and hospitality of this place. The road to this resort is clothed in gorgeous landscape with beautiful flora and fauna; you see the occasional dear and turkey while driving to and from the resort. I was privileged to stay in both a room and a cottage... More

This resort has one of the most amazing views I have ever laid witness upon, and even better is that most rooms have a balcony overlooking aforementioned eye candy. The lake is beautiful. It sparkles and dances like diamonds are jumping in and out of the water. Add to this the amazing treeline and trails in the area, as well... More

Nestled between lush mountains, the moment I pulled up to the resort, I knew that I was in the right place for some southern comfort. As soon as you walk into the lodging area, you are greeted by members at the front desk with warm smiles. The lobby is well furnished with comfortable couches, a tv, a stone-made fire place... More

I stayed here for some days while working in the area. I had the delight of staying in one of the cabins at one time and a resort room at another. The rooms have doors that open up to a balcony that overlooks the lake. The balconies have tables and chairs, inviting one to rest after a long day’s work.... More

This place is really nice, but it gets three stars just because it is not for me. I am a very active person, and this resort has little for me to meet that need. The pool is nice, and the views of the lake and beach are spectacular. I wish there was more hiking,biking, and running areas, or even a... More

The Buchkorn Lake State Resort is isolated from any loud noises of traveling vehicles and is located with a great view of Buckhorn Lake. The morning fog is what I got to see every morning I stepped outside while staying at the Resort. The Resort seems outdated as far as the interior of the rooms, but it does offer a... More

My Colleagues and I stayed here as part of a business trip with my summer program Entrepreneurship for the public good. The resort was beautiful.
