“Step back, step up, step into”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Back into time in this historic register house refurbished to highlight chestnut wall paneling while preserving small eccentricities like a well-worn staircase.
Up into the embrace of the original Buck House now inhabited and served through the bright smiles and cordiality of the Stebbinses--Debbie & Sam. I especially like the way they make the Inn feel inviting and usable, subtly luxury without the cloying atmosphere than can attend to some similar establishments.
Into an ambience that combines easy access into the beauty of the mountains with the promise of retreat into care-full attention to comfort and peacefulness.

On my second visit to this lovely inn (and my husband's first), we certainly couldn't have made a better choice for celebrating our first wedding anniversary. Not only did Debbie and Sam ensure that our anniversary was celebrated in style (from an adorable heart shaped rose wreath on our door to a "happy anniversary" announcement on the chalkboard), they treated us with the same level of hospitality and attention to detail I've come to expect from The Buck House. Breakfasts were not only spectacular to look at, but scrumptious to consume - we had creme brulee french toast the first day and eggs florentine the second. Fresh-baked cookies are available in the afternoon, and you can have a few glasses of wine in the evening. (Or coffee, hot chocolate or tea, if you prefer.) And then, as if that's not enough to lure you, the grounds are gorgeous and complete with swings and hammocks to relax in, the historical restoration and charm of the house are beautifully done, and the rooms are very well appointed and comfortable. We slept like babies in our bed - so comfy! Also, even though most people come here to get away, we happened to come on the first weekend of college football season, and we couldn't miss our game. Sam showed us to the sitting room, and the television reception was excellent for being so high up in the mountains - we didn't miss a second of the game! Needless to say, we'll make an effort to be back here as soon as we can possibly get away again!

Room Tip: This was my second time in the Chesnut room, and I still love it. The wood paneling seems so perfect...

An absolutely wonderful experience from the beginning to the end...if I close my eyes I can still hear the stream outside our bedroom window or smell the bacon which garnished the most delectable breakfasts.Sam and Debbie are truly inn keepers par excellence!! They are committed to making each guest feel like family as they provide all the comforts of home. Whether I was reading in the hammocks or hiking in the mountains, both were so refreshing.to my body mind and spirit. Carnot wait for our next visit even though we have to travel almost 1200 miles to get there!!

We spent two nights at the Buck House and already are trying to find time to go back. Wonderful accommodations, impeccably clean and beautifully decorated. Delicious breakfast & plentiful snacks. Stables next door provided a fun and relaxing trail ride and the hike up to Little and Big Bald was easily accessible and well worth the short trip. Although we didn't get to meet the owners, as they had to unexpectedly leave town for a family funeral, we had a delightful time getting to know Laurie. Her gracious, fun and attentive skills made our brief visit even more special.

Room Tip: All the rooms were lovely and quiet. Only sound at night was the sweet gurgle of the creek.

We were thrilled with our selection of the Buck House Inn for our stay during our recent trip to North Carolina. The scenic setting is peaceful and relaxing, away from the noise and crowds; yet it is close enough to the Blue Ridge Parkway and its attractions, such as Mount Mitchell. I can't say enough about the warmth and attention of our hosts, Debbie and Sam, who always went out of their way to see that we enjoyed our stay at their Inn. You can tell they love what they do. One thing I enjoyed was that unlike most B & B's nowadays, the Buck House Inn freshens your room and makes the beds each day. The breakfasts were over-the-top, with plentiful portions of a variety of items...such as "cream broule french toast." Coffee, lemonade, cold drinks, snacks and fruit were always available. The large home is lovingly restored and every room is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Don't miss hiking up the Little Bald Mountain, just a short drive away, after which you can relax, sitting in a rocker on the large front porch, enjoying the scenery and the sound of the nearby stream.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to have pleasant views. We enjoyed our stay in the Dreamdale room.

I can't say enough about our visit to Buck Head Inn. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous and instantly put you at ease. We started our visit with a nap in the hammock by the creek with the owners German Shepard sleeping under us! Super relaxing the entire trip. The owners are wonderful people and accommodating. I love that the bedrooms didn't have tv's and no cell phone reception, allowed us to enjoy the natural sounds and sights of the mtn. This is a must visit for anyone near Burnsville, which is a lovely small town. We stopped by the Saturday farmer's market and Amish store. Great B&B all around!

Room Tip: We stayed in Chestnut Room, great sounds from the creek while we slept! Also, we drove to Spruce Pin...
