This is our second time at Buckhorn Inn. It did not disappoint. We come here to relax and enjoy the beauty of the Smoky Mountains. We do not engage in the tourist traps of Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. Breakfast and Dinners are an experience you cannot miss. After each meal enjoy a few moments on the rocking chairs looking out to the mountains. Staff is so friendly and accommodating. We meet so many couples celebrating special occasions as we were, everyone is in a relaxed mode, which is nice to experience. Looking forward to our next visit to the Buckhorn.

Room tip: Stay in one of the beautiful cottages if available.

This inn has been here over 75 years, yet we believe has just its' third owners. The Mellors' are class people and run a wonderful B&B. If wanting to stay further than within walking distance to the tourist attractions in the Tennessee Smokies, yet have a front door or more literally front porch view of the highest mountain peak in Tennessee (Mount LeConte), this is an ideal location. They also serve a great dinner on site, varying their selected fare nightly. If wanting to see some of the local sites, it is also within just a few minutes drive to the Smokies and walking trails and also downtown Gatlinburg. The atmosphere here is most conducive to celebrating anniversaries, birthdays, honeymoons or just wanting a relaxing stay at a classic B&B to get away from the everyday pace. Their rate is very competitive to other inns and lodges in the area and less than many that are comparable. Enjoy, we certainly did!

Room tip: Go on-line and review their overnight choices. The newer cabins and older guest houses are the most remote to the main lodge.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Buckhorn; we have lovingly reminisced about it many times since we first stayed a decade ago. There's not much I can add to the reviews below, other than to note that our hearts have grown even fonder. I am not normally at a loss for words, but it is hard to convey with precision how genteel and refined this Inn and its keepers are, while at the same time being warm, welcoming and down to earth. We stayed in a suite that must have been the old innkeeper's quarters, as we had an expansive living room with fireplace, a dining area, a large fully-outfitted kitchen with laundry room, a smaller sitting room with a library, a master bedroom, two bathrooms, a linen closet, and two balconies, all decorated to a high standard of beauty and tastefulness. The kids spent a lot of time playing in the "secret closet", and I spent a lot of time on the balcony, listening to the most enchanting birds and spring peepers weaving together their mountains-in-the-twilight songs, as the sunset flared off of Mt. LeConte. Our three breakfasts were fabulous, from Pina Colada French Toast to grilled salmon and hashbrowns. Our children had some questions about the chef one day, and they were invited into the kitchen to watch Chef Frank at work. It was so special and thoughtful, the kindness and consideration shown not just to us, but to the little ones who can sometimes be regarded with scorn at fancier places. It is also very affordable for the quality and value of what you get. The grounds are filled with beautiful springtime Lenten roses and the inn is filled with a very nice art collection. But most important of all is the feeling of joy, beauty, and peacefulness that stays with you long after you have left the Smokies. We hope to return again soon!

The Buckhorn is in a quiet location away from the noise of Gatlinburg. Our room was a "premium" one and we found it clean, very comfortable, with many amenities. More like staying at a friend's home. The staff was all so friendly, among them we found "Libby" to always be most cheerful and helpful. We had dinner there on Sunday evening and the meal, presentation, quality of food and service were all outstanding. Breakfast is also outstanding, the choices were wonderful, the fruit to begin the meal was always ripe and again service is delightful.

Room tip: The premium rooms are quite spacious with great views.

Only a few miles from touristy Gatlinburg but a different world. Don't come expecting a flash 5 star hotel but instead a delightful welcoming inn. Set in magnificent grounds with views to die for.
Gracious innkeepers and friendly staff will look after you well. The breakfast is different ever morning and is delicious. Dinner in the inn also a treat.
If you want a bit of space and privacy I'd suggest you pay a little extra for a cottage. This comes with kitchen area with fridge and microwave to allow you to do a little self catering. Outside porch to admire the views and the wildlife.

Room tip: A cottage will give you a bit more privacy and space
