Hidden gem in Gatlinburg that offers a great place to stay at a reasonable price, nice people, a view of Mt Leconte and great food if you choose to eat there. We've been there over a dozen times and will continue to go back.

My husband and I visited the Buckhorn Inn for our anniversary again this year. It was our sixth visit and as usual, it was the loveliest of stays. We love our accommodations (Lindsay House) and the food was amazing as always. The chefs at Buckhorn always impress us and the staff there is like family, taking such good care of... More

Charming and much attention given to comforting details. The nostalgic 'old time' cabins added to the welcome and to the overall experience. Great job! May we suggest one improvement to make it 100%complete. In cabin #5 the spotlights shine right into the bedroom way into the night which for us after two days of road travel impacted our nights rest.... More

We stayed at the Buckhorn recently for four nights. We rented cottage #4. We could not have been more delighted and really hated our stay was not longer. If it's a peaceful retreat you are looking for, away from the overly commercialized Pigeon Forge and downtown Gatlinburg, this is the perfect place. A wonderful breakfast is included with every room... More

Hard to find a better place to stay and eat. We love this place for it's small scale and high quality! The food is the best! The view of Mount LeConte from the porch and dining room just sweetens the deal.

What a wonderful jewel in the heart of the Smoky Mountains. We have stayed at The Buckhorn many times and they simply always get it right. John, Lee and their staff go the extra mile to make sure their guests have a great time. Their breakfasts and (optional) dinners are reason enough to visit and the accommodations are comfortable and... More

This is probably our 2 dozenth visit at the Buckhorn and we continue coming back because of the delightful hospitality, the amazing views of the mountains and the best breakfasts in the area. I also enjoy walking the lovely grounds--and always enjoy a meditative walk in the huge labyrinth on the property.

We have been visiting twenty five years and have stayed in all of their accomodations. The inn, staff, rooms and meals are top of the line. The experience is authentic and unique. It's a true value and we look forward to our next visit.

This was our 13th or 14th stay at Buckhorn Inn over a period of several years. The fact that we have gone back time and again says it all. This time we stayed in the new Greenbrier Mountain House (built during the past year) and throughly enjoyed our stay. We have booked a return visit for February 2017 and will... More

My wife and I stayed in one of the Premier rooms, and it was lovely, quiet and convenient. The breakfasts were sumptuous and delicious, with plenty of choices for both of us. Just after we arrived, we enjoyed the self-guided nature walk around the property after a long travel day.
