Historical Traveler Reviews Buckhorn Inn Gatlinburg
My husband and I stayed at the Buckhorn Inn for our honeymoon on Nov. 13-15. We were completely satisfied with our choice of staying there. We were upgraded to a cottage for free, which was very nice and VERY private! The breakfasts were absolutely fantastic every morning, and the staff were all very nice as well. We loved that it was far enough away from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, but still close to the park. We would go back in a heartbeat!
Just back from this serene and hospitable inn. If your looking for a get-away to relax, enjoy nature and reconnect with loved ones, this is the place. The views are majestic, the area so peaceful, the cuisine delectable and the room are so romantic. Especially the ones with king beds, gas fireplaces, and whirlpools. The decor is perfect and the rooms are immaculate. We will return as often as we can.
So Lovely and Peaceful
My family loves the Smokies, so we have often traveled to Gatlinburg. This inn, however, makes you feel like you are the guest of honor on a charming country estate in England or Ireland. Beautiful rooms, lovely antiques, fluffy towels, highly quality sheets, and a gracious host and hostess to leave a key and a cheery note upon your late arrival, and to greet you at breakfast the next morning. There was a gloomy spring rain the entire time we were there, but we still felt warm and snug at the Buckhorn. I look forward to staying there again in the future.
3 Days in a luxurious cabin with every amenity made memories - great view into the nature and up to mountains. fireplace (not needed in the 90°), kitchen, bathroom all very tasteful, clean and the quietest location next to all attractions, porch and patio, their nature trail took us in about 45 minutes through their grounds with pond, birdwatching ,wildlife,acces to a art gallery on neigboured grounds,
The daily four cours dinner at $ 30 is a real chiefs work, we loved it and were unhappy to miss it one evening because we did not book one day in advance, they were complete days before! it was the highlight of 3 weeks USA.
Its family owned and operated, what you feel in every thing and by every staff member you'll meet.
Exceeded all expectations
This inn is a gem. We stayed here for four nights in June. The hotel is furnished traditionally and to a high standard. Our suite was large and comfortable with a lovely view and a verandah. The atmosphere was welcoming and tranquil. Everything we needed was at hand and staff were attentive without being overbearing. There was a wide choice at breakfast and the food was excellent. We had dinner in the inn on 3 nights which varied from good to excellent. The dining room has superb views of the mountains which made our meals even more enjoyable. We would highly recommend this inn and wish it was nearer so that we could go for a weekend break. Our stay at the inn was extremely relaxing and exceptional value.
The Buckhorn Inn, a lovely spot, shares an address with Gatlinburg, but thankfully, that is about all! Far from the crowds and commercialism, the Inn is a reminder of what makes this area such an attractive place to vacation. We stayed in a "cottage" which turned out to be a well-built, private accomodation, with screened in porch, living room with fireplace, small but functional kitchenette, nice sized bedroom and luxury bath with huge jacuzzi tub. I'm a tough customer and I was extremely pleased. The setting for the Inn is beautiful and peaceful, the grounds are a wonderful combination of groomed and wild, and the buildings are impeccably maintained. We ate dinner there one night and it was excellent, as were the breakfasts. I'd describe the food as hearty American--rich, well prepared and generous in portion. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were reasonbly priced and a very good value for what you got. A great place!!
We spent 3 nights at the Buckhorn Inn and did not want to ever leave! We stayed in the Webb Mountain House which was wonderful. Very private with beautiful views from every window. Breakfast was delicious and the staff was wonderful. We hope to return every year!
The Inn was amazing. We had a memorable experience. We got engaged on the trip. The staff was very helpful. I think they have thought of every little detail. The breakfasts were wonderful and relaxing looking out the windows. We also ate dinner one night at the Inn and you must do so to funnly appreciate Buckhorn Inn. It was very cozy and romantic. I would definately recommend this to all couples. Next time we go we are going to take family and friends with us. They have set the bar very high for all B & B's.
A place set apart . . .
Buckhorn Inn is a 'place apart' -- apart from the over-crowded and commercial Gatlingburg-area, apart from the 'modernity'of so many establishments, and apart from the 'sameness' that has come to characterize many inns in the U.S.
Buckhorn Inn occupies vast acreage outside of Gatlinburg, Tennessee, in a tranquil setting, with beautiful views of the Great Smoky Mountains.
Although the Inn is small/medium in size, and even 'intimate' in its atmosphere, a range of accommodations are available: guest houses, cottages, rooms in the original inn, and newer rooms in the addition to the inn. All the options are very nice. The cottages, however, offer something special: a private, little house, with sitting room with fireplace, a kitchenette, bedroom, and nicely equipped bathroom.
The meals are excellent: bountiful breakfasts, and multi-course dinners. Plus: you may bring your own wine.
Buckhorn Inn, established in 1938, is a place that one hopes will never change - it adapts gracefully to contemporary standards, but retains the traditional, comfortable, quiet standards of the era in which it was founded.
Serenity in the Smokies
Around Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and other commercial areas of the Smoky Mountains, peace and beauty sometimes seem as illusive as the mists on the mountains; however, both can be found at the Buckhorn Inn. People there are hospitable, but not intrusive. Every breakfast or dinner I have ever eaten there has created a memory. The accomodations are nice, but the air is rarified.

Someone asked me about my trail name the other day in the comments, and I realized I had mentioned it on Facebook and to individual people, but I never posted it here. My trail name is Wolf Pack, because of my resemblance to Alan in the movie The Hangover, especially when I'm hiking in my aviator sunglasses. In that vein, I thought it would be fun to list some of the names of people I've met on the trail. So with no further ado: Mooch (or Brightsider, or Bread and Butter, or ...
... of rhododendron, walls of them covering this mountain range and from them come the tall straight soldier like hardwoods reaching for the sky. The mountains in every shade of purple to grey are stunning. With every stop we make at view points we leave knowing each was better than the last. The mist comes up through the mountains, looking like smoke, silly Robert it is not the smokers at all! We are so pleased we took this route.
Of course Robert played ...
Great Smoky Mountain National Park was the focus of my trip to Knoxville this week. This was the first National Park I've ever visited that did not require an entrance fee, which was pleasantly unexpected. The park is famous for its views of the Smoky Mountains, and is apparently America's most visited National Park. I suspect this is because it is the most sizable park on the East coast, and ...
... it is named the Fontana Hilton because it has a functioning shower and toilets that flush! For hikers this is luxurious living. Not to mention, a guy by the name of Fresh Grounds is doing Trailmagic tonight and all day tomorrow. He makes tons of foods for hikers, which is the most amazing thing you can do for a hiker after they've eaten freeze dried food for a week straight. So I'll have a hot shower ...
Menu Item: Ham & Hash brown Omelet
Notes: Came with onions and 3 buttermilk pancakes also
Comments: It was good but not as good as I hoped. There wasn't enough substance to the omelet. The pancakes were just average.
Overall Impression: Below average omelet with average ...
