There are several words in Webster’s old dictionary that would describe your beautiful inn. But we can shorten it to just one simple word “perfect. ” May we also add “grace and charm.”

We received good news today: “TripAdvisor is delighted to recognize Buckhorn Inn with a 2013 Certificate of Excellence. This prestigious award, which places you in the top-performing 10% of all businesses worldwide on TripAdvisor, is given to businesses that consistently earn high ratings from TripAdvisor travelers.” Thanks to all those guests who have written about their experience at Buckhorn on TripAdvisor.
This email I received today from dinner guests Marty and Earl really made me happy! It said: Earl and I just wanted to thank you and let you know how wonderful the Valentine Dinner was. We had guests (who have traveled extensively) and they really enjoyed the evening. They commented that this was what they considered “dining” rather than “eating out”, and it ranked with the finest restaurants. The presentation was lovely and the food superb.
You really outdid yourselves!

Letters like this one from a recent visitor from the Northwest makes innkeeping such a pleasure! As I said today, I had a most pleasurable time at Buckhorn Inn. Your type of business is rare. Your hospitality and that of all the staff was such a memorable experience that it will stay with me for decades. The meals and service at the Inn are of exceptional quality. My mind could truly wander here and create my travel log with a sense of intimacy and feeling. I enjoyed the Smokies, the beauty, tranquility, and attachment to nature. Having reached the Appalachian Trail fulfilled a desire from many years ago. I will never forget the experience. My experience at the Cosby Campground and annex to four hiking trails was a wonderful and lasting experience. Thank you again to you, John, Bob (or does he prefer Robert), Libby, Nina, Electa, Heidi, Gloria, Frank, and Gary.
Leigh wrote to us recently and her compliments made Chef Bob blush. She wrote: I was at Buckhorn Inn this past Saturday for dinner. I want to say that it was an incredible meal. The bread was delicious and the roast pork was fantastic. The absolutely best part of the meal was the salad and lentil soup. I wonder if it would be possible to have the recipe for the salad dressing and the lentil soup? I was visiting the area with friends and as we left dinner we could not say enough about the salad and soup. Once again, I found our dinner to be superb and will encourage anyone I know visiting the area to go to Buckhorn Inn for dinner.
Location, location, location. This lovely Gatlinburg inn is so close to the activity of town, yet set in a lovely wooded enclave of peace and quiet. The views of the Great Smoky Mountains are stunning and the wonderful food can’t be beat. It’s innovative and comforting “homestyle” at the same time. Marvelous. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in one of the premier rooms and loved strolling the grounds and walking through the Labyrinth. Don’t miss the chance to stay here on your travels through Gatlinburg.
Hospitality is the art of making others feel welcome, comfortable, and at home. It’s the talent for spready warmth and kindness that will be remembered always. Your hospitality was all this–and so much more. We will return!
We send our sincere appreciaiton and warmest thanks to Lee, John, Libby and Frank and the other wonderful folks who made our stay at Lindsay House so memorable.
Note from Knoxville Guests: Thanks for your hospitality. It was warm and wonderful–just like you! We thank you for the wonderful, caring hospitality you provide. We enjoyed our time at Buckhorn and look forward to our next visit.
