Always our “go-to” place to stay in Gatlinburg – Review of Buckhorn Inn, Gatlinburg, TN – TripAdvisor

 We have lost count how many times we have stayed here and are never disappointed. Our preference is to stay in one of the premier rooms, ideally premier room 1 or 2 located on the first floor in the newer addition to the lodge facing the mountain view. Premier room 4 is like an apartment with a full kitchen, dining, sitting, and living rooms and is located on a lower level of the lodge, with maximum privacy and a lovely mountain view from its balcony. Premier rooms 1, 2, and 3 would be excellent choices for folks with mobility issues.We have stayed in a couple of the traditional rooms upstairs in the lodge. These are original to the lodge and are somewhat smaller than premier rooms, but each is uniquely decorated. The preferred traditional rooms would face the mountains.We have also stayed in the Lindsey House separate from the lodge but still on the property. The bedrooms are on a separate level from the living area and therefore would not be the best choice for folks with mobility issues. The Bebb House next door would then be a better choice since it appears to be one level only.  

A delicious multi-course breakfast is always included in the lodge dining area, with a menu specialty in addition to breakfast standards made to order. The wait staff is always pleasant and efficient. The classical music in the background adds to the relaxing ambiance that begs one to linger. One of the owners, Lee or John, is often present to greet you as well. If you choose, a delicious single four-course gourmet menu dinner is served each night at 7PM for a set price. Dietary adjustments will be accommodated whenever possible with advance notice. Reservations are required. We have never been disappointed! Presentation and service are always given great attention.We have stayed here when our desire is to hike in the park or shop the outlets or in town, or to have a quiet place to avoid distractions from home for my husband to study for his recurrent bi-annual pilot training. There is a lovely sitting area downstairs in the lodge for reading and conversation. A sweet dessert snack is available in the afternoons, and complimentary coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and pepsi colas are always available.We have never stayed in the cabins so I have no experience from which to report on them.I highly recommend staying here any season, which we have. The mountain views are ever-changing and most relaxing anytime.
