Buckhorn Inn – A tranquil, well appointed surprise in the Smokies – Review of Buckhorn Inn, Gatlinburg, TN – TripAdvisor

“Buckhorn Inn – A tranquil, well appointed surprise in the Smokies”Reviewed 2 days ago NEWA well needed respite in a gorgeous setting, this mountain retreat in the heart of the Smokies met and exceeded our expectations in every way. A friendlier staff simply can’t be found & everyone from the owner to the office manager to the wait staff and the chef himself always engaged us and warmly treated us like old friends. The dinners, served at tables with linens, were set in a relaxing & quiet atmosphere with much thought out menus that will please even the most finicky diner and breakfast was always delish! At center stage of the dining room is a large stone fireplace with walls decorated with canvas prints of local birds and wildlife from a local photographer. Afternoon snacks were a much appreciated carry thru. The grounds are as lovely and lush as depicted on their website and I personally found the labyrinth a soothing and meditative break that was really needed. With it being mating season we didn’t get too close to the swans as they become aggressive if approached but they were a visual feast to adore their beauty from afar. The room was huge and spacious giving each of us our own personal space. Well appointed with every convenience we expected & a fireplace that was the focal point of the room. The deck overlooking the grounds and a picture perfect view of the Smokey Mountains were an added bonus. How lovely to wake up to this gorgeous view that so few get to enjoy! A timeless library with fireplace is a great hideaway if you need it and throughout the property are trails some of which are cleared & mulched. We’ll be sure to return and if you’re on the fence about making this destination a reality, let this be the review that pushes you off to reserve yourself a room as close to heaven as you can get here on earth.
