Our fifth visit! – Review of Buckhorn Inn, Gatlinburg, TN – TripAdvisor 18 Mar 2015, 2:36 pm

“Our fifth visit!”Reviewed 2 days ago NEWAs two school teachers, we’ve gotten in a terrible routine: fall break in October we go to the beach in the Florida Panhandle and spring break we go the Smoky Mountains and the Buckhorn Inn. I found the Buckhorn on line 4 years ago for our 30th wedding anniversary and we’ve been back every year since AND I’ve made my reservations for next year already. Why do we like the Buckhorn so much? It starts with the people. John and Lee, the owners, are very ‘present’ and make us feel at home. The staff is friendly and it is good to see many of the same folks each year. The food is wonderful. Breakfast is a delight. Dinner is incredible. So we eat big in the morning, hike all day (taking the coffee cake from breakfast for our snack on the trail), and eat like royalty at dinner. We enjoyed all six of our meals this stay very much!Another guest put it this way: the Buckhorn doesn’t change and that’s a good thing. You know what to expect and know you will enjoy it. Maybe we need to figure out how to get here in October!

Kevin Recommends Dinner at Buckhorn Inn 16 Mar 2015, 2:40 pm

Just wish to say my wife Lisa and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience last Thursday evening.  Both Heidi and Martha were professional, proficient and courteous in their care of us.  I also appreciated the Happy Anniversary note card and other things on our table.  The meal was exquisite and I for one finished everything put in front of me except for 1/3 of the pie – I was full!  The Buckhorn Inn will be a place I highly recommend to anyone visiting the Gatlinburg area.

Peaceful get-away – Review of Buckhorn Inn, Gatlinburg, TN – TripAdvisor 8 Mar 2015, 6:34 am

We stayed at the Buckhorn Inn on a friend’s recommendation and we have found a new favorite get-away place. The Inn is so peaceful and relaxing and the staff is warm and friendly. They even remember your food and drink preferences. And the food is amazing. Well made and well presented. We stayed in one of the cottages and were very happy we did. It was so relaxing and peaceful with beautiful views of the grounds and the mountains beyond. We look forward to making this an annual destination.

Great Smoky Mtn B&B – Review of Buckhorn Inn, Gatlinburg, TN – TripAdvisor 27 Feb 2015, 12:29 pm

Stumbled upon Buckhorn Inn last second due to our prior inn canceling due to inclemate weather. Was able to get a great traditional room with dinner and breakfast of course for a great price. Inn has great view of mountains with an easy accessible location. Innkeepers and staff very sweet and helpful highly recommend!

Wonderful, relaxing experience – Review of Buckhorn Inn, Gatlinburg, TN – TripAdvisor 23 Feb 2015, 2:29 pm

“Wonderful, relaxing experience”

I am biased. My wife and I have stayed at the Buckhorn Inn so many, many times over the past decade that we aren’t sure how exactly how often we have been guests here. This is a wonderful, quiet, relaxing place to be close to all of the activities of Gatlinburg and the Park and still be able to retreat to the peacefulness of the Lodge itself. The Innkeepers/owners and their staff are great hosts and make all guests feel welcome. Breakfasts at the Inn are fabulous and included… but you must try dining at least once at the evening 4 course dinner also served here (at added cost and reservation required). You cannot find a better dining experience anywhere else in the Gatlinburg area.

Stayed February 2015, traveled as a couple

A place you will never forget….and will want to return to year after year! – Review of Buckhorn Inn, Gatlinburg, TN – TripAdvisor 23 Feb 2015, 2:28 pm

“A place you will never forget….and will want to return to year after year!”Reviewed 3 days ago NEWThe Buckhorn Inn is a place that you will fall in love with on your 1st visit. We have come for the last 7 years, and look forward to our next visit before we leave!The wonderful owners, the staff, the chefs, servers, and ground folks are like family. They make you feel like you have come home…a comfy one. The history of the Inn is so interesting. The building, the grounds, the cottages are simply beautiful. It’s safely tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg, but close if that interests you. Hiking is a favorite of ours, and so many trails close by. We have been guests in different seasons, but the winter is our favorite with snow.My husband and I love the inn and the people there!

Comfortable, enjoyable, great staff – Trip Advisor Review 10 Feb 2015, 1:00 pm

Buckhorn Inn was a marvelous find. We stayed in one of the cottages and it soon felt like home from home. Debbie and the other staff went to every possible effort to be helpful, and deserve much praise. The house and the cottages are well-furnished and the bed was extremely comfortable. The jauzzi in the bathroom was a lovely touch, and was enjoyed by us! The amenities provided were also very nice. The location is excellent – away from the bustle of Gatlinburg, but not so far as to be inconvenient. It was a delightful stay in a well-run inn in lovely surroundings. My only criticism would be the lateness of the start of breakfast (8 am) which really prevents a full day out unless you skip breakfast. At the end of our stay we were told that we could request it earlier. That’s good to know, but a 7 am or even 7:30 am start would be so much better. This isn’t a cheap stay, but we felt that it was worth it. We’ll return.

Feels Like Going Home–Trip Advisor Review 9 Feb 2015, 7:07 pm

We make it a point to return to the Buckhorn Inn two or three times each year and are welcomed warmly by the staff whom we know on a first-name basis. The hospitality is over the top, food is to die for, and the setting is far from the madding crowd of Gatlinburg, yet the park is so close! We love Premier 2 or Premier 1 overlooking Mt. LeConte, but this time we enjoyed Premier 4, a complete apartment on the lower level. John, Lee, Debbie, Heidi, and the team always make us feel like royalty, just like everyone else! The Buckhorn Inn is not for everyone. It is for those of us who want peace, quiet, solitude, total class, and a place to rejuvenate in the beauty of the Smokies.
