We stayed here in Mid-October. The rooms were exceptional. Views were everything we expected. Dining was outstanding. We did get a visit from a bear one evening. Enjoyable to watch. No danger to viewing. Thank you to the mgmt. and employees. A wonderful experience.

This was our first trip to the Smoky Mountain area and were very pleased with our choice of the Lodge at Buckberry Creek. Our focus was taking in the fall foliage and driving/hiking in the Smoky Mtn. Buckberry Creek was idea for this and a relaxing place to unwind. It is very close to the bypass so provided quick access...

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay. We're glad you enjoyed the accommodations and the quality restaurant menu. Fall is a spectacular time of year in the Great Smoky Mountains, the color changes produce views that rival masterpiece paintings. It was great having you here and we invite you to come back soon.

This is our new favorite place. My husband and I said we want to bring our son (21 months old) back here every year. We are seasoned travelers, but we just don't think anything could live up to Gatlinburg and the Lodge at Buckberry Creek after this trip. Beautiful grounds, views, and people make this place number 1! We ate...

The pavillion is extremely nice. One disapointment at dinner was a business meeting was being held at the next table. We had a beautiful view of the mountains but this meeting took away from our dinning enjoyment and experience.

This lodge is a wonderful choice for anyone who does not want to be inundated with all the chaos and congestion in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. There are wonderful meals and quiet, clean rooms. There are three classes of rooms. The first type is like a studio, with everything in one room. The middle size is more like a suite...

Thank you for the feedback regarding your recent stay. We're glad you enjoyed the accommodations and escaped all madness that surrounds.

We are frequent travelers to the Lodge--probably come here annually during the fall season, and like it for it's seclusion out of the Gatlinburg craziness and it's camp themed luxury.
