Our stay at Buckhorn was truly 5 star. The cottage was very comfortable with an incredible view from our deck. We had reserved dinner for the first night and it was so wonderful we immediately asked if they could make room for us the next evening. The dining room is beautiful with gorgeous views. Both the breakfasts and the dinners...

We were fortunate to have found Buckhorn Inn for a 2-night stay last week. Having never been to Gatlinburg, just reading about the crowds and chaos made my head spin so I looked for an alternative. Luckily we found Buckhorn Inn on TA and couldn't have been more pleased. It feels like you are miles away from Gatlinburg with gorgeous...
