Buckhorn Spotlighted in Best of the Smokies

We are thrilled that Knoxville’s Cityview magazine included the Buckhorn Inn in their May-June Best of the Smokies roundup.  The article references one of our many famous guests, Walt Disney.  Mr. Disney stayed in Cottage 2 at the Buckhorn while filming the television series Davy Crockett.  Some scenes from the five-part series were filmed in color at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the Mountain Farm Museum.  Mr. Disney enjoyed his stays at the inn so much that every year until his death in 1966 he sent Christmas presents to the innkeepers’ children.  Watch this blog for future articles detailing other famous guests at the Buckhorn Inn!  We are especially pleased that “Hidden in Plain Sight:  Treasures of Sevier County” by Hannah Overton describes us as “keeping the art of slowing down and enjoying the beauty of the mountains alive since 1938”.   To read the entire article, please visit http://www.cityviewmag.com/hidden-in-plain-sight/.

The Buckhorn Inn is the perfect calm, restful place with easy access to the wonders of nature and to the excitement that our towns have to offer.
