BUCKHORN INN EARNS FODOR’S CHOICE 2010 DISTINCTIONFROM FODOR’S TRAVEL: Buckhorn Inn has been recognized by Fodor’s Travel, the foremost name in travel publishing, as a 2010 Fodor’s Choice selection. This distinction represents a remarkable achievement and recognizes Buckhorn Inn as a leader in its field for service, quality, and value in the 2010 year.
Since 1988, Fodor’s Travel has been awarding the Fodor’s Choice distinction to only the very best hotels, restaurants and attractions around the world. Every year, Fodor’s writers experience, examine and evaluate thousands of hotels, restaurants and attractions in their travels across the globe. While every business included in a Fodor’s guide is deemed worth a traveler’s time, only fifteen percent of those selections are awarded the very highest, Fodor’s Choice designation by Fodor’s editors.
“From hidden-away restaurants to can’t-miss museums, Fodor’s Choice selections recognize the top sights, properties, and experiences our editors and updaters have found in their travels,” says Fodor’s publisher Tim Jarrell. “These places are the best of the best, providing a remarkable experience in their price range or category.”
As a 2010 Fodor’s Choice recipient Buckhorn Inn receives special recognition in the current Fodor’s guidebook to this region and on Fodors.com. Buckhorn Inn was previously recognized by Fodors in 2001 as one of the most unique lodging establishments in the United States.
Innkeeper Lee Mellor said she and her husband John were delighted to be recognized by Fodor’s Travel again. “While many of us like to use the Internet as a source of travel reviews and information, there is nothing more trustworthy than the unbiased information and reviews in Fodor’s travel books and on their website.”
Established in 1938, Buckhorn Inn offers fine accommodation in traditional rooms, suites, cottages and guesthouses on its 30 acre site overlooking the Great Smoky Mountains. It also offers dinner each evening to inn guests, tourists and locals. Served by soft lamplight in the dining room which overlooks the mountains, this sumptuous repeast contains only the freshest and best quality ingredients, all carefully selected by our chefs.
