Yes, the historical mountain views at this inn are still grand and changing often! If you like staying at one of their older cabins, they have IMPROVED the bathroom and replaced the old whirlpool baths with spacious walk-in showers! The staff is still as friendly as ever and you can usually visit with Lee or John during one of the...

Wonderful hospitality and charming B & B with a back porch spectacular view of the Smokey Mountains. Both nights we dined there and the food cuisine matched the view! We were in room 1 on the second floor, lovely.

The view from our room was spectacular. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable. The many other guests were all friendly. There is a lot to do on the grounds including a nice path for walking. The food was inventive and well prepared. There is much to choose from for breakfast and the 4 course dinner was delicious!

Stayed in Cottage 1 for one night in May. Very charming and cozy and it helped that it was raining and we fired up the fireplace making it extra special. Some beautiful hiking trails that would have been nice on a sunny day. Lots of different options for overnight accomodation and we're thinking next time to reserve one of the...

Curling up by a fire is a wonderful way to relax. The colors in the fall are amazing indeed.

We stay here one to two times a year on a continuing basis. Great service, wonderful food, gracious host in a relaxing & beautiful setting. Recent stay was with wife's siblings for several days. Accommodations for breakfast and dinner were perfect.

We come here every spring and we love it. The atmosphere is so relaxing and Lee and John are the best innkeepers. The food is phenomenal. We plan to visit for many more years to come. It's mainly for couples but they can accommodate families in the houses. Dinner would not be suitable for children.

This is a small inn built in 1938 and located close to the Greenbriar Entrance to the park just off 321 - very convenient to sight-seeing and shopping in the arts and crafts community. We love returning again and again because 1) we are welcomed warmly and treated like royalty, 2) the rooms are beautifully appointed and oh, so comfortable,...

What a great place. Small cozy inn in the heart of the Smokies. A wonderful room with a stunning view of the Smoky Mountains. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud. Dinner was very tasty. There is only one seating with a set menu. The breakfasts were hearty and very enjoyable with home...

We've been going to the Buckhorn Inn for several years. It is our favorite vacation location. The rooms, food and scenery are just wonderful. We are close to the Great Smokies national park as well as the annual Gatlinburg bridge tournament. Our reservation for next year has already been confirmed.

This was a perfect getaway. Beautiful and peaceful. Will definitely go back. Breakfast is such a treat. Seated and served, no buffet. Even though dinner is extra and optional, it is worth the $$. Wine is not overpriced as it is at so many places
