Hilda Returns to Buckhorn After 60 Year Absence

Hilda andHilda Henderson Hagins wrote to us………

Some of my fondest childhood memories are of the beautiful Buckhorn Inn.  Our family rented a cabin there for a week for several summers in the 1950’s. The beautiful view from the porch of the Inn has remained with me all these years. I also recall the wonderful breakfasts at the lodge and all the books and bookshelves in the main gathering room. Even then I loved books and reading! The breakfasts at the Inn were another highlight of our day.

During our week at Buckhorn Inn we often took day trips into the park and I remember the delicious lunches the staff always packed for us. The innkeepers’ daughter Molly and I were best friends for that week each summer, and Molly often accompanied us on our trips into the park. (Maybe that’s why our lunches were so good!)

A highlight of my week was when Molly and her mother June would invite me to spend the night with Molly at Bebb House.  Molly and I were pen pals for most of elementary school.

My husband and I are returning to Gatlinburg for a mini vacation later in March. Our son is our official “travel agent” so we asked him to book some accommodations for us in the area. Imagine my surprise when he told us he had booked a stay at Buckhorn Inn for us! He had no idea of my history with that wonderful place. I am excited and can’t wait to visit a place that has lived in my heart for many years with beauty and happy memories for me! I’ll see you soon!
