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. I can across Buckhorn Inn by using the Tripadvisor app on my phone. We managed to get a reservation the same day I called because they had a cancellation. I’m so happy we were able to stay a night in the inn! We had room 3. It has a great view of the mountains. The room has a VERY comfortable King size bed. I would rate it the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in while traveling. The room is clean and nice. It has a couple of comfy chairs and a desk. The bathroom is a bit small but it fits the character of the house. The windows in the room and bathroom have a lot of great charm. The back patio has large rocking chairs that you can relax in. We took our morning coffee out there and took in the beauty of the land. The dining area is very nice. Lots of dark wood and a great fireplace. Plenty of windows to take in the view. The owner of the inn checked in on us to make sure we were having a nice stay. The breakfast that is included is OUT OF THIS WORLD!! I thought it would be good but it exceeded my expectations. That morning they were serving ricotta pancakes with orange marmalade syrup. It was heavenly. The marmalade had little bits of orange rind it in. I think I may call the Inn and see if the will give me the recipe! They also served homemade biscuits and cherry cheesecake muffins. Yum! This breakfast was the best breakfast I have ever had. I have been talking about that breakfast for weeks! My husband also raved about his eggs, bacon and fresh fruit. We would have hiked the grounds but we had to get back on the road. We will definitely book another stay at this inn but the next stay will be a longer one!
