I stayed here for a week, for a training. I was so impressed by the friendliness of all of the staff. I was ready to leave a raving review, until I realized I had accidentally left my $100 memory foam pillow in my motel room when I checked-out. I immediately called the front desk, when I was just an hour... More

Buckhorn is such a hidden treasure (up in the KY mountains)! Our extended family holds a reunion there each summer, and we love to join whenever we can! It's completely relaxing and charming. It may be a bit rustic, but there are beautiful views, great food, comfy rooms and plenty of fun things for kids to do. We love it... More

We stayed with a group of 20 people. The rooms were beautiful and the pool area was great. The next day we met with my class in their lecture room for discussions and reflections, and their hospitality was obvious. Check the Bollingr pride sign, and the huge elk.
