What a gem nestled in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains! The grounds are immaculate, and I cannot say enough about the very clean and comfortable cottage(s) we used during our visit. Each staff member goes out of their way to make you feel welcome and ensure your stay is enjoyable. Breakfast is amazing -- the juiciest of fruit,...

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. We LOVE bed and breakfast. This is not your typical bed and breakfast experience. We felt like we were staying at a state park cabin that had not been decorated since the 70's. Let me emphasize OLD and MUSTY. I had allergy issues the whole stay from the musty cabin. We...

Lee M, Owner at Buckhorn Inn, responded to this review

This guest’s report of her experience at our Inn devastated me and I sympathize with her feelings. In reading the review again and again, I see that she didn’t like anything about our inn—not the décor, the food, the service, the view or any other aspect. As readers can see from other reviews on this site, this is not the...

Other reviewers have touched on the basics that make a Buckhorn Inn stay so pleasant: quiet and serene location away from the hurly-burly of Gatlinburg, beautiful and well- maintained grounds,delicious food (breakfast especially) efficient and friendly staff, gracious hosts, comfortable and tastefully decorated common areas, cottage(or room), and more. All are spot on so I will not repeat, and the...

We booked this stay way back in January for our anniversary weekend (May 31-June 2). I knew it would be a good place, but I had no idea it would be as wonderful as it was. We were greeted warmly and shown around. There is a sitting room downstairs with a coffee maker, soft drinks, ice, and in the afternoon,...

We found the Buckhorn while searching online for B&Bs in Gatlinburg. This place received rave reviews, so we had to see for ourselves. We were thrilled with what we found. The Buckhorn is tucked away from the noise and crowds of both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge yet is not far from either. The grounds are beautifully manicured, and the view...

We are so glad to have found this beautiful small hotel in the mountains near Gatlinburg. We spent 2 nights in april here and also booked dinner on both nights. As our flight was slightly delayed we were late for the evening meal, but as we had phoned they kept our dinner ready and we were welcomed warmly with a...

We loved our stay at the Buckhorn inn! We were traveling by car from Savannah to Indianapolis and we wanted a place to stay midway thru the trip. At first I looked for hotels in Gatlinburg but decided that I didn't want to mess with the traffic and the noise. We did want a nice view of the mountains though....

The inn is like an English country house hotel with traditionally furnished reception areas and rooms. It has wonderful views towards Mt Le Conte and well laid out trails in the very large garden. We had a traditional room because we were only staying for one night; it had a comfortable king bed, 2 easy chairs and was excellent value...

We stayed 3 nights in the Bebb House. We are 2 couples traveling together and this was an ideal set up for us. We were able to tour all day and come back to a very pleasant place to just relax. The house is very spacious. Lee and John were great hosts. Breakfast each morning was excellent.

My sister and brother-in-law recommended this gem in the Smokey Mountains to us a number of years ago. It was not until recently that we have had the opportunity to come this way and we are so glad we did. The hiking around here has been fun but the Inn is the highlight of this trip! Our room is spacious...
