My partner and I came to the Buckhorn to celebrate my 38th birthday (late October) and have a nice vacation. We stayed in "The Bebb House". The views were phenomenal and I snot think I have ever enjoyed that level of peace and quiet. We loved the grounds and had dinner one night that was beyond delicious. The owners and servers were lovely. Highly recommended!!!!!

My husband and I stayed here for the first time. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. The Inn was decorated beautiful and had a wonderful view! It was very cozy, clean and food was pretty good! But....for the actual rooms, the Inn controls the heat/ac so if you like a room where you want your own temp stay in the little cabins because the upstairs rooms will be freezing one time and burning up the rest! Lastly, the upstairs rooms at the Inn have very small bathrooms and our room had shower only...if someone in the Inn Also, if someone brushes their teeth or flushes the toilet your going to get scalded or froze! Dont let this keep you from staying with them just pick main floor rooms, downstairs or cabins! They were very friendly! Oh, lastly there are black bears so beware!

We were passing through Gatlinburg on our way to Cincinnati and wanted to try another B&B as we often do. The Buckhorn is fabulous. We stayed in the tower room. It is the best as far as we are concerned. It is a very private section of the Inn. It has three levels, so it may not be suitable for everyone, but we loved it. Very clean and a beautiful view from any part of the Inn. Lush gardens and trails to explore. The food was outstanding along with the service. You can just sit on the rocking chairs of the back porch for hours and enjoy the spectacular view while having tea or coffee, or enjoy the side deck amidst all the lush foliage. They have thought of everything to make you comfortable including a hammock. This Inn would be great any time of the year. Winter would be just as cozy and appealing as the Spring. Large fireplaces and books galore. You will not be disappointed.

My husband and I have stayed here three times and love it. The breakfast is amazing. The rooms are cozy and clean, and the staff is so friendly. Every time we are in the smokies, we stop by for dinner even if we are not staying over. The food is so unique and fresh, which is a rare find for the area. The inn is located 10 mins from downtown Gatlinburg, but is secluded so that you do not feel like you are in the middle of town. We highly recommend it for anyone!

My wife and I chose the Buckhorn Inn to celebrate our wedding anniversary (48 yrs). We did not know what to expect since this would be our first visit and we knew no one to ask for a reference. To say that we were pleased would be an understatement. The Inn is fabulous. I know of no other to describe our visit. Our first visit will not be our last. Be sure and have dinner.
