... to CARRY the raft from the bus to the river. That sucker was HEAVY! Then the guide asked us where we wanted to sit. I said I didn’t care but somehow Mike and I ended up in the front. I wasn’t sure how I felt about that but I discovered pretty quick that the front is the splash zone and that water was C-O-L-D!!!!! Everytime we would go in the rapids I would scream (but ...
... path right on the river. We set up our tripod and we were in business
At this point we were starving but I knew exactly where I wanted to eat. I had read that the Bush
Bean Factory had a museum and a restaurant so off we went on another detour to Dandridge, Tennessee. There we encountered the nicest folks who are extremely proud of their Bush Beans. We watched ...
... could see them die a little bit inside! Feeling a little worn out, and a tad bored of the national parks, we drove round a bit more, before exiting and driving through one of the bordering towns, Pigeon Forge. This place was a bit nutty. I have never seen so many adventure golf, and go karting places on one street. There were so many that you wouldn't believe me if I told you, not that I counted! We however, had our heart set on dinner, so we stopped in for some super ...
... and old cinema themed. Who would have thought a place like that would be in a town like this? And that unexpectedness, that why not attitude is one of my favorite things about this trip. I received two letters in my mail drop, thanks so much Melba and Grandma for thinking of me and sending your well wishes my way; it really means a lot. I think that's all for now. Ole Redd, happy birthday, bud. And family, it was really great to spend some time with you. Talk to y'all tomorrow. ...
... from my teammates to face my recently discovered fear of heights, I made the leap from the bridge and swam safely to the shore. It felt good to have tackled that, but I had no desire to do it a second time! We made it into Maryville around 230pm, where Cycology bikes gave us free tune-ups and we stocked up on some necessary bike items (I have already gone through a set of road cleats!) Afterwards, we road the last mile into the Boys and Girls club, where we were staying for the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Lodge at Buckberry Creek Gatlinburg
Fantastic! Go there!
We spent 2 nights there in August 27-28th and it was fantastic!
The lodge is located in a quiet and pleasant place several miles away from downtown, it has been completely renovated since January 2005. Make sure to call the lodge prior your arrival to get your way in as it's a little bit difficult to find the way in a map...
Our room was clean and spacious with a well furnished kitchen, a confortable large king size bed, a small balcony and the bathroom provided jacuzzi bathtub with separate shower room!
We had a costly but delicious dinner in the restaurant ($81 for 2) and they cannot offer wines for a matter of license...
You may find it expensive but trust me, it's worth every penny!
This is indeed a lovely hotel, from location to rooms.
Heavenly location, beautiful views of the Smokey Mountains National Park. High above Gatlinburg with a secluded retreat feel, actually very convenient to all. We enjoyed the easy access to Smokey Mountain National Park, Gatlinburg attractions and adventure (we went white water rafting).
My stay at the Lodge was simply amazing. First, I couldn't find it, because mapquest gave me wrong directions. Eventually I did. It's on top of a mountain. Really high up. Since I wasn't expecting this, and I'm afraid of heights, it was a little freaky. Every night they come to your door with a plate of 2 or 3 cookies. A different flavor every night. Great. If you order the chocolate covered strawberries, they are wonderful. Everything was spotless. They had extra blankets, tons of plush pillows on the bed and very comfortable bath robes. The bottled water they give you is a great souvenier, because it has a Lodge label on it. Also, they even deliver the paper to you. Not just daily like any other hotel, but they give you a Sunday paper too. Also, plates, bowls, silverware, pots, pans, and Coke, Diet Coke, Dr. Pepper, and Mello Yello are provided.
So good I want to say it was bad to keep everyone else out!
The staff acts like they are there simply to make your stay wonderful. The setting is gorgeous. It was our anniversary, and we had a picnic on silver trays brought down to the pavillion by the creek. They had soft music and wonderful lighting on when we arrived in the humvee (the mountain limo) for us. We had a wonderful solitary dinner and danced under the stars before our ride came back to pick us up. This is NOT a touristy Gatlinburg hotel. We were brought cookies to our room at night, and the suites were decorated for comfort and rustic charm--Big, soft bed covered with pillows and a quilt. I am afraid this place will get difficult to get reservations for once the word gets out. Shhh!
This place is a winner! The rooms were awesome and the staff aims to please. We took a long 4th of July weekend trip and enjoyed every minute we spent at the lodge.
We just celebrated our 25th anniversary at the Lodge at Buckberry Creek. Very new with a wonderful rustic camp feel while incorporating all the amenities of whirlpool tubs, separate tile showers with his & her sinks, slate bath floors and wonderful turn down service with dessert nightly. Loved the interior design! Continental breakfast was just that but the view is fabulous. Dinner there was good, but slightly less exciting than we had hoped for the price. The absolute best surprise is the Pavillion at the Creek, hike down if you like, but the staff will bring you back up in the hummer limo! You must try the hammock next to the water. Only downside was not getting to fish the trout. Would definitely stay here again & can easily recommend to friends.
Perfect Mountain Retreat
"Wow" was my first thought as my husband & I approached the resort nestled in the mountains for a three night stay over Memorial Day Weekend. This new resort which has only been open a few months is a gem. With only fourty plus all-suite rooms with fireplace and decks... this place has it all. The furnishings were first class and rustic which fit the surroundings. I was impressed when I saw our spacious Deluxe suite complete with kitchen and gas fireplace. We had a wonderful fine dining experience at the restaurant's deck with perfect views of the mountains. Privacy, beauty, sophistication and a spectacular staff is what you will find at the Lodge at Buckberry Creek. We can't wait for a return visit.
If you intend to experience Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky National Park then this is the only place to consider. If you like rustic elegance combined with excellent service and by far the best cuisine in the area you won't be disappointed. Will visit many more times in the years to come.
My husband and I drove by to view the property. It has the best view in the area! The architecture, and property are amazing, one of a kind to the area! When we called for more information the staff was professional, kind, and helpful. We have already booked our company meeting in Feb. Thanks guys! -Jessie
