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.

Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg the amusement and adventureland of Tennessee. Never seen so many different mini golf courses, go cart tracks, and other attractions lining a main city street. These places are alive with tourists and cause major traffic jams. Don't travel on fridays we learnt.
Hectic place geared up for the 10 million visitors to the Smokey Mountains per year. ...
... Georgia Lin. A running joke about mcdonalds started up. Adam said it wasnt until i pointed out there was so many McDonalds he never really noticed there was one basically every mile of the road. So each time we came to a McDonalds it would he a case of someone sayin "wow a mcdonalds, we should get one, iv not seen one of those the whole trip!" Also the M sign doesnt stand for McDonalds its stands for 'MURCA' It was late when we got to Nashville but we still wanted to meet Saskia for a ...

The is an 11 mile stretch of road with 318 curves including some fairly tight switchbacks. People come from all over America (and the world!) to do it.

Got up for breakfast again for 8:30 am. Enjoyed a visit with Bruce & Marty & an older couple from Kalabash, South Carolina. Marty & Bruce had been staying in the carriage house & invited us to come over & see it. What a lovely place to stay. They were all packed up, so we exchanged emails etc & said our goodbyes as they are headed out today to visit family nearby. We headed out at about 11:00 am to Asheville on the Blue ridge parkway heading north this time. ...
