Nice Effort Indeed


                                                              Buckhorn Memories Jack

We are publishing a book at the end of this our 75th Anniversary Year of guests’ musings, reflections, and general states of mind in connection with Buckhorn.  We have already received some good stories, but I am particularly pleased by the unsolicited note from our great-grandson Jack.  A second grader this year, he was asked to write about his summer holiday which produced the Nice Effort above.  Discerning teacher, no?

Learning to Dance in the Rain

Thanks so much for your southern hospitality.  The tireless efforts of the staff to make our stay so very memorable are beyond commendable.  We loved our room and all it offered.  It helped us to forget all the business of the world and focus more on God and his directions–knowing He holds us in the palm of His hand.  We experienced comfort beyond measure and service exceeding every expectation.  This is a place that indeed goes the extra mile.

We feel blessed to have had the opportunity to celebrate our twenty-fifth wedding anniversary and Phil’s 54th birthday at Buckhorn.  God’s handiwork reaches beyond the senses, leading one to wonder what to expect next.  Viewing Mt Le Conte every morning was such a special gift.  The first day we were blessed with an afternoon thunderstorm and reminded of a favorite quote:  Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass.  It is about learning to dance in the rain.  Thanks again for helping us to make some unforgettable memories.  Give our praises to your chef for a superb presentation, preparing the food like an artist.  And give all the staff superior marks for giving their all without holding back.  Looking forward to returning,  The Grosses

Buckhorn Charm

It was such a wonderful time Sunday for Joe and Dorcas. I spoke with every guest and each enjoyed the food and atmosphere.  There was lots of laughter and hugs.  Thank you for a beautiful location, delicious food and wonderful assistants to help.  Once again Buckhorn graced everyone with its charm.  Glenda Newton

A Stop Along the Way

Sitting at breakfast, overlooking the mountains, we’ve been reflecting on how we came to be here.  We’re celebrating our anniversary–four years.  But, somehow, saying four years doesn’t do it justice.  It doesn’t seem big enough.  We’ve logged four international trips, two moves, quit three jobs, started one thriving business, birthed two of the most beautiful little boys you will ever see, met a lot of people, and visited a lot of places.  If the next 40 years are as full as the first four, we will have quite a story to tell.  Thank you, Buckhorn Inn, for being a special stop along the way and a piece of our story.  We have truly enjoyed it. Jonathan and Kate Addington

Happy Birthday Buckhorn Inn

A Little Bit Extra

While celebrating another anniversary at Buckhorn (#58), we were asked:  “What is the secret of these many years of marriage?”  With little hesitation, I replied:  “It’s a 60/60 proposition–each one doing 50% and a little bit extra.”  It is the little bit extras given to guests by Buckhorn Inn owners and staff that keeps us coming back.  We have traveled  in the past  to places like Boothbay Harbor, Mackinac Island, Fredericksburg or Malibu, but Buckhorn Inn will always be our number one inn.  Thank you and God willing, #59 will be with you and other special dates in between.  Lois and Herb Hofer

Splendid Breakfast

Jeff and I are thankful for another wonderful stay at Buckhorn.  At breakfast I noticed some retired couples out on the porch.  I hope Buckhorn is still here when we reach retirement age!  We celebrated Jeff’s birthday on this trip.  We were so excited to get to stay during the 75th birthday year of the Inn.  Looking forward to our next trip to Buckhorn.  And–thanks again for another splendid breakfast.  The Heatherleys

Never Disappointed

Wow!  What a way to celebrate your 67th birthday–at Buckhorn Inn with the one you love.  With color on the trees, snow on the mountains, or the beauty of spring and summer, we’ve never been disappointed on any of our visits to Buckhorn Inn.   Jerry and Betty Holden

First Timers

We have lived in this area for 18 years and have always heard about Buckhorn Inn.  We are so glad we finally visited, and we will not wait another 18 years before we visit again.  It was a great visit.  Thank you, Lee and John.   Kim and Mel Hawkins

A Bear Sighting

Another wonderful visit at Buckhorn.  This is our third stay this year and we were rewarded with a black bear sighting in a tree over the road in Cades Cove.  The weather was perfect for a hike to Abrams Falls.  Looking forward to our next visit, Mimi and Allen Scott
