A well needed respite in a gorgeous setting, this mountain retreat in the heart of the Smokies met and exceeded our expectations in every way. A friendlier staff simply can't be found & everyone from the owner to the office manager to the wait staff and the chef himself always engaged us and warmly treated us like old friends. The... More

Spent our anniversary weekend here. Scenic location with quaint, clean accommodations. The staff really welcome you and make you feel at home. Food at the restaurant is 5 star!! Beautiful walking trail around the property was a joy. Looking forward to another trip.

My husband and I were at Buckhorn 25 years ago for our honeymoon, and decided to return. It was as lovely as ever, and in fact improved. A true haven/escape, a far cry from the commercial horror of Gatlinburg. It felt like stepping back in time with the dining room reminiscent of 1950's and lovely verandah looking at the fabulous...

On a recent road trip through the southeast, my husband and I spent 3 nights at this lovely Inn nestled in the hills outside of Gatlinburg. As we drove through town coming out of the park, I was suspect of our stay in Gatlinburg, with all the "plastic" of the main drag through town. We left town and headed out... More

The Buckhorn Inn is superb either as a B&B or as a gourmet restaurant. One reason for this is that the owners are actively involved in the day to day operation. The owner's wife helped us climb stairs with our luggage! The owner of the inn greeted us at breakfast and made us feel welcome. The rooms are clean and... More

This was our second visit to the Buckhorn Inn and it was just as wonderful this time around. We stayed in one of the Premier Rooms during this visit; lovely, spacious, and very clean. Our room had a private balcony along with spectacular mountain views. It was so nice to walk just a few steps into the dining room each... More

Buckhorn Inn is a wonderful place to spend a wedding anniversary. The Inn is set in a serene environment with spectacular views of the Smoky Mountains. We especially enjoyed staying in one of the Inn’s cottages, which offered a little more privacy. The Inn is a great place to relax, read a book, enjoy a glass of wine on the... More

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".
