Walt Disney Visits Buckhorn 23 Nov 2014, 10:22 am

 

Well, not recently.  But he and his wife Lillian stayed for about a month in 1954 when he was preparing the Davy Crockett series. All reports say he and Mrs. Disney were charming guests who sent all the Bebb children special Christmas gifts each year thereafter.  His signature from one of our guest books is third from the bottom.

Name That Swan! 18 Nov 2014, 3:58 am

Teller’s Bride Arrives

 

Tuesday, November 17, 2014 was a joyful day for Teller whose mate Pen passed away last May.  His as yet unnamed bride arrived on a flight from Chicago. This three-year old beauty made herself at home immediately with Teller escorting her very courteously around the main points of the pond.  

Please help us name this gorgeous creature.  Names we like include Pentrey, Mrs. Cob, and Penagin.  (Pen is the generic name for female swans and cob is the generic name for males.)  Let us know which of these suggestions you like best or send us your own suggestion to: info@buckhorninn.com.

Perfecting the art of innkeeping – Review TripAdvisor 3 Nov 2014, 7:13 am

eThis is not only a beautiful and charming inn, in a beautiful location, but they seem to have perfected the art of innkeeping. Everything from check-in to ordering a sack lunch which was large and tasty to housekeeping was smooth as silk. The Buckhorn Inn is about 6 miles outside of Gatlinburg so it is a good thing that they have a very good restaurant on the premises. Food is served at dinner as a prix fix meal and everything we had on the two nights we stayed was very good. It’s a very quiet place – away from the hub bub of downtown thank goodness – that’s a zoo with rocking chairs on the back “porch” to enjoy the beautiful view toward the Smokys. Children are allowed only in the cabins so it is a place that attracts an older, quieter crowd. Everything is done with care – even housekeeping is in and out of your room while you have breakfast so you never see them. Peace and rest are the best ways to describe this place.

Early Fall Color 2014 13 Oct 2014, 11:28 am

Color is already good in the Smokies.  

The Greenbrier just across the pasture from us is looking mighty good.

Great time at the Buckhorn – TripAdvisor 13 Oct 2014, 11:20 am

We stayed in the Webb Mountain House and really enjoyed our time there. Everything from breakfasts to the house to the grounds were perfect for our family of 4. We enjoyed the afternoon snacks as well as walking the nature trail to visit the swan. The inn’s location is great…not too close to the busyness of Gatlinburg but not too far away from everything either. One thing I would point out is that the Webb House was supposed to have WIFI but it didn’t work most of the time. We weren’t too upset about it though since we ended up reading many of the good books lining the shelves inside the house. We will definitely return to the Buckhorn in the future.

Always Perfect – TripAdvisor Review 13 Oct 2014, 11:17 am

This was our 2nd visit to The Buckhorn Inn. We love B & B’s and the Buckhorn tops our list. The staff is always pleasant. The breakfast’s are the best!! We stayed in the Tower room. Boy that was fun. It does have 26 steps up so be prepared. 1st floor has patio, 2nd is bath and 3rd is bedroom with windows all the way around. It was like staying in a tree house. We truly had a great time. They have beautiful garden’s and close drive to all area activities. This is the best place to stay in Gatlinburg!!
