Some Things Change–Others Don’t

Malinda Lewis

Buckhorn Inn Regular Malinda Lewis has been visiting Gatlinburg for almost fifty years. The photo above shows her on her first visit in 1961. Wow! She and her husband Buck continue to be faithful Buckhorn guests and Malinda wrote the free verse below to celebrate her experiences at the Inn. Oh yes–she’s as good-looking today as she was in 1963.

Honey-gold shafts of light through the trees

The mountains in summer like waves of green velvet

The smells of breakfast cooking if you’re lucky enough to stay in a traditional room

Sunsets over Mt Le Conte

Stargazing on the front lawn

The Pittman Center Heritage Days Festival in September

Rhododendrons in full bloom in June

Hoar frost that sparkles like diamonds

Savoring sweet treats in the sitting room in the afternoon

Visiting with other guests about hikes and good books.

Staff who welcome and treat you like family
