For several years, I have been trusting Trip Advisor when making travel plans. So when the reviews for Buckhorn Inn were overwhelmingly positive, I had high expectations when booking an anniversary trip with my wife.
Somehow, Buckhorn Inn managed to exceed all of our expectations. John and Lee are wonderful hosts and the property is everything an exceptional B&B should be. There is a high level of attention to detail, from the grounds and nature path to the comfort of the common areas of the inn... even afternoon snacks and coffee in the gathering room.
My wife and I stayed in one of the private cottages and were thrilled with the cleanliness, the gas fireplace, the quiet, the comfy robes, and the huge whirlpool tub. The food is beyond description (stay for dinner... it's worth the cost) and was a highlight of the stay. The peaceful and friendly atmosphere was the perfect getaway. Near Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, but set away in the mountains and full of quiet peace, charm, and natural beauty.
If you are looking for a high-energy stay in the midst of Gatlinburg gridlock, this is not the place for you. However, if you are looking for a high quality inn, great food, friendly people that are genuinely happy to host you, and a place to rest and recharge, this is the ideal location.
For 10 years, my wife and I searched for our perfect place to escape. We found it at Buckhorn Inn.
