Not sure I understand the few bad reviews on here, it must be a problem from the past, because our stay was exceptional! We stayed in a gorgeous suite in the trout building, what an amazing view! The food in the restaurant was outstanding. We also enjoyed and Easter buffet that was nothing short of incredible. If you are staying in Gatlinburg, stay away from the strip during the busy time and head up the mountain for a short ride to Buckberry. The rooms, view, well worth the money! My only advice is that if you new to driving in the mountains like us Floridians, make your first trip up the mountain in daylight to get yourself acclimated to the drive, it's a fun ride up!

Stayed: April 2012

We were pleased with the service, the continental breakfast, the views and such. We were disappointed with the size of the "suite" and the amount of noise we could hear from other guest rooms. For the price you should not be hearing people above you walking around let alone cough! And the doors being opened to the doors around us were terribly loud to us. The quality of construction materials on the surface appear very nice but, being a carpenter, I can tell that the attention to noise reduction is not there. I would not stay there again because of these issues and I'd say the room was worth about $140 tops, not $180.

I loved this lodge! Normally we book a cabin when we go to Gatlinburg, but we decided to try a hotel this time. I did not regret it one bit! The lodge was beautiful, the rooms were nice and spacious. I would recommend requesting a room on a higher floor though so that you can have the incredible views that those rooms will provide. We only ate at the restaurant for breakfast, but it was great! The food was delicious and the views from the porch where we sat were a wonderful start to our morning. The staff was great and helpful. The hotel felt secluded, but it was still not far at all from everything else. The lodge was also was less than a 10 minute drive from downtown gatlinburg and the entrance to the national park. I loved this lodge and would definitely stay again!

Dear evan103,
Thank you for sharing about your great weekend at The Lodge at Buckberry Creek! Our lodge is definitely secluded, one would never know all the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg is just a short ride down the mountain. We look forward to your next visit!

The room was nice and clean, albeit a little small for a suite. The hike to the pavilion is worth it, but it would have been nice to have some refreshments there. The pavilion is very nice, hopefully more utilized at other times of the season.
The staff is very friendly. The only real negative has been referred to in another review as "bait and switch" continental breakfast. This is exactly the way we felt. My family just wanted to grab a quick danish and coffee or juice. Instead, you must sit at a table and be served from a very small selection by a server. The whole idea of the continental breakfast is simple and quick, self-service. My family had no desire to dine-in for breakfast, therefore we just skip this experience and stopped in town.

This was annoying, but this is a very nice place and will be even nicer with the plans for expansion they have in the future.

Room Tip: bring your own supplies for breakfast, unless you want a more formal breakfast. at least once, hike to the pavilion.

rooms where very nice but many short cuts and very short staffed. It appeared to be only 2 desk clerks with one working in the morning and one in the evening. They seemed over whelmed from phone calls each time we seen them. The breakfast was NO continental breakfast, it was a "bait and switch". The "continental" is only a few cold items but for $12 a person you can order off a menu. Was expecting a true 5 star but its a place that needs more employes and to not cut corners to save money while charging a 5 star price. For less money we could have rented a beautiful cabin with 3 bed rooms two baths, full kitchen and TV's in every room while getting an amazing view of the mountains.

Room Tip: Rent a cabin and get much much more for the same price.

Dear jsmith955,
Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay at The Lodge at Buckberry Creek. We are happy to hear that you were pleased with your room during your visit. Although we love being busy with reservation calls at the front desk, it is not our intent to appear too busy for our guests. Recently we have added to our front desk staff to help as we come into a busier season. Please accept our apologies regarding the continental breakfast; however we do offer a plated continental which includes fresh fruit, yogurt, scone & pastry. Cereal, granola, milk, coffee, and tea are conveniently set up for self service. All hot breakfast is available a la cart and varies in price. We hope to welcome you back again in the future when you travel back to Gatlinburg.
