We enjoyed our stay. The beds are quite comfortable, and the room was pretty clean, just slightly aging bathrooms. But we would certainly return. The jacuzzi is in the bathroom tub, not outdoors. The one thing that bothered me was at checkout. The man at the reception desk showed me the bill for room tax, and he added a $15... More

Gatlinburg is about half-way between our home in Ohio and that of one of our sons in S. C. We met there for 3 days in late March for a get together and some hiking. We have stayed at the Buckhorn several times in the past and found it excellent, and were delighted to find that it still is. The... More

Once again, when we needed to rest, recharge, and be pampered, Buckhorn, its owners, and staff were there to welcome us, provide comfortable lodging, excellent meals, and a warm and friendly atmosphere. We look forward to each and every visit. Buckhorn proves "you can go home again".

We had not been to the Buckhorn for eight years. It felt like coming home....our journal entries in Cabin six from 2005-2007 were still there. We can not say enough about Lee and John and Debbie manage to treat all their guest like royalty in the utmost casual of ways. If you love Donald Trumps golden luxury apartment, skip the... More

Been coming here several years. It has become like a second home.. Very peaceful and relaxing.. Lovely walking trail around the land with benches to sit, relax, and think. Staff is wonderful, They go out of their way to help you in any way. Food is excellent and substitution for food allergies are made when needed. Couldn't ask for a... More

Our visit was for our 3rd anniversary. The staff was nice enough but the cottages were old and not in the best condition. For the amount of money you have to pay a night to stay I had hoped for nicer accommodations. We didn't even go down for breakfast as the room was such a disappointment I couldn't face the... More

I am very sorry you did not enjoy your visit to our Inn when you came in October. I apologize for any problems with room maintenance that you encountered. As you can tell from other reviews on our Facebook page, yours is an unusual experience which I regret very much. Please know that the issues you identified were corrected several... More

As two school teachers, we've gotten in a terrible routine: fall break in October we go to the beach in the Florida Panhandle and spring break we go the Smoky Mountains and the Buckhorn Inn. I found the Buckhorn on line 4 years ago for our 30th wedding anniversary and we've been back every year since AND I've made my... More

We stayed at the Buckhorn Inn on a friend's recommendation and we have found a new favorite get-away place. The Inn is so peaceful and relaxing and the staff is warm and friendly. They even remember your food and drink preferences. And the food is amazing. Well made and well presented. We stayed in one of the cottages and were... More

I am biased. My wife and I have stayed at the Buckhorn Inn so many, many times over the past decade that we aren't sure how exactly how often we have been guests here. This is a wonderful, quiet, relaxing place to be close to all of the activities of Gatlinburg and the Park and still be able to retreat... More

The Buckhorn Inn is a place that you will fall in love with on your 1st visit. We have come for the last 7 years, and look forward to our next visit before we leave! The wonderful owners, the staff, the chefs, servers, and ground folks are like family. They make you feel like you have come home...a comfy one.... More
