The Buckhorn Inn offers the grandest Smoky Mountain views of any Gatlinburg bed and breakfast. Elegance and period charm mix with the inn's friendly, romantic atmosphere of a Smoky Mountain Lodge.

It has been a favorite destination for discriminating visitors to Gatlinburg, Tennessee and the Great Smoky Mountains since 1938.

Situated less than a mile from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Buckhorn Inn is convenient to all activities and attractions in the area including hiking, arts and crafts, musical theaters, and the Pigeon Forge Outlets.
