Superb dining; exquisite decor; friendly and timely service. Truly a world-class resort and facility in the mountains of east tennessee. Look forward to visiting again when I return to the area. Thanks for everything!

  • Liked — The attention to detail in the design and decor of the rooms is unbelievable. You have to see it to believe it.
  • Disliked — Having to leave.

We found the lodge here on tripadvisor and were there Sept 7-12th. All I can say is wow! I've never had a better vacation in my life. The lodge was a big reason for the success of our trip. If you want to relax and view the mountain scenery this is the place. We met several of the owners and they are the nicest people. The wife and I are actually thinking about going again in November. : )

  • Liked — Room quality/comfort, extremely nice staff, mountain views in room and restaraunt.
  • Disliked — Honestly I don't think there was anything we didn't like. It was simply fantastic.

We stayed at the Buckberry in early August en route to Memphis. We selected the Gallery suite as our party included my wife, myself, our baby and my wife's mother. There was plenty of room in the suite for all of us. We arrived quite late and missed dinner but were able to order some desserts to be delivered via room service.

The furnishings were very nice, our 8 month old enjoyed the bath. There was a nice view from the Balcony and we even saw a bear wandering below!

In the morning, breakfast was spectacular, just about the best I had during our three month stay in the US. A beautiful view as well looking out over the mountains.

I would highly recommend the Buckberry to anyone.

  • Liked — Just about everything
  • Disliked — Wifi was not accessible from our room, had to go to the main building

We spent a night at the Buckberry this July after reading reviews on Tripadvidor and were not disappointed. The location is lovely and the continental breakfast was superior to most that we have had. Our room was fine, one of the smaller ones, but the bathroom was very large and really nice. We talked to some of the guests about the dinner there which seemed expensive to us and they said it was excellent. There is a very nice verandah outside off the dining room with a great view of the Smokies. We had our breakfast out there. Only con would be that the TV was positioned too high for viewing and we were getting cricks in our necks! We were very glad we decided to stay there rather in the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg.

The lodge itself is wonderful, and the setting will take your breath away. However, the staff leaves something to be desired. After reading several reviews about the noise levels, I called and requested a room on the top level and stated I would be willing to pay any extra charges. I was assured I would get a third level room. Well, I did not-- we were on the lowest level and it sounded as if a battle was being raged in the room above ours. The noise was almost unbearable. Then to compound it the smoke detector kept beeping in the hallway. 3 phone calls and 2 hours latter that issue was resolved. We would consider staying there again, but only in an upper level room.

  • Liked — the setting

My wife and I really love this hotel. At around $160 a night, it was the best "bang for the buck" that we have ever had. The terry cloth robes, whirlpool tub, wood burning fireplace were all great. I agree with all the great remark made about this place.

  • Liked — Great value
  • Disliked — Was not real crazy about the town of Gatlinburg. It was just OK

The hotel is situated in a stunning location. The trail works are fantastic. We found the suites to be very impressive, with high spec in every room. The staff were very helpful and food is pretty good too. This is great place to go get closer to nature, it is 100% recommended.
