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!
Great hotel with a few flaws
This is indeed a lovely hotel, from location to rooms.
The rooms are quite spacious and they have great bathrooms with both shower and jacuzzi baths.
Then we ate in the restaurant and that is what lets this hotel down, the food was good but it was not as good as the very high price tag would suggest (prices range from $30 - $48 for a main course), this is the most expensive meal I have eaten in America and I cannot say it is the best. Then when it comes to breakfast you can either have the free continental breakfast (which mainly consisted of muffins or muffins) or the al a carte menu that ranged from $9 - $12 after the experience with the eveing meal we stuck to muffins. For the price of this hotel I think they should be offering a hot free breakfast.
In general this hotel is worth the stay it is a very good standard of hotel, it just has a few flaws that need ironing out.
The Lodge at Buckberry Creek-a fantastic retreat!
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).
The Lodge at Buckberry Creek combines the best of the newest, luxurious hotel amenties and rustic ambiance. The suites are large, charming authentic lodge decor. Each with private mountainside patios and decks, kitchenettes (For the culinary do-it-yourself-ers, but the hotel food is inspired!!). The Lodge has a winding nature trail by a mountain brook and beautiful rustic gazebo.
We rented several suites for two nights for an impromptu family reunion, ages 10-44. We all loved it and it made a for a nice location for families to play and enjoy company. My husband and I want to go back for a romantic weekend to fully enjoy the fireplace, spa tub and chocolate covered strawberries.
Go here!!! The best!!!!
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.
The balcony is a great place to just sit and breathe the mountain air. Get a room with a good view. Mine was just lower trees. But I also could see far off mountains with fog around them. Beautiful. The Lodge has the nicest staff ever. They will accomodate any need you want. They go out of their way to help you make it the best stay.
This is a long post and your'e probably thinking something has to be wrong with the hotel. But everything is perfect.
My suggestion: While in the jetted tub with your significant other, have a plate of chocolate covered strawberries on one corner, champagne in another, bubbles in the tub, and have fun. That's what I did. Eli
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!
What a wonderful Experience!
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.
Even though we had our 4 year-old daughter with us we were never made to feel unwelcome. We had dinner at the lodge Saturday night and the meal was wonderful. What I like best about this place is the way you feel special staying there. With only 45 suites there is never a crowd and you feel as if you are staying at a private retreat.
The special touches are the best like homemade cookies everynight and wait until you see the set-up on the river. Also take a ride in one of the Buckberry Limos.
My family and I cannot wait for a return trip this fall to experience what I am sure will be breathtaking views of the changing leaves and being able to use those fireplaces.
The only suggetion I have is to add some LCD TVs in the Master bedrooms.
I WILL BE BACK!
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

... for that matter). I love the older, more traditional cottages and this time, I'm opting for a duplex. Actually, it's a triplex! I've driven past this "barn" on many of my trips to Topsail and decided this would be the year I booked one of the 3 units it has. Nothing fancy, a bed, a bath, a kitchen and a deck on ...
We spent new years eve at Ober Gatlinburg, We rode the tram up. Unfortunately it was very crowded and took us 2 1/2 hours in line to get on the tram. Was pretty ride up to the top of the mountain. But once there they were making snow, and the mountain tops had snow from the night before still on the trees. We ate at the buffet in the restaurant that was excellent, Lot of food ...
... The park was awesome! On the third day we went horse back riding and zip lining. The kids LOVED the horse back riding, however Vera did NOT love the zip lining! :o)
On our final day we went to Ober Gatlinburg where the kids got to go snow tubing. There was plenty of man made snow to make this a cold and wet, but exhilarating outing. Immediately following the snow tubing we got back into the car and made our ...
... everyone wins! We arrived at night and unfortunately could not admire the scenery, but we felt it going through the mountains, as there are lots of twist and turns. We rented a cabin at Dollywood Cabins and they are built into the side of a mountain and so high up that your ears pop when going up and down. We stayed in the cabin called "The Sun Also Rises", which is a 2 bedroom cabin decorated in modern rustic. It had more than ...
We met a couple here at the campground that we spent a good bit of time with. Randy and Frieda own a rental cabin wayyy up on top of a mountain called "kindred spirit". They repaired and remodeled this cabin including putting in a seperate heated indoor pool, hot Tub etc. This place has everything!! The view ...
