Historical Traveller Reviews of Lodge at Buckberry Creek Hotel

s ever!

from LaurenEk77
My new husband and I decided we wanted to see snow for our first Valentine together and chose The Lodge at Buckberry Creek after reading the reviews on this website.
It was amazing! It was very country and had a great cabin-like feel but was VERY clean! The bed was comfortable and we ate at The Lodge for dinner Sat. night. The food was pretty good. Honestly, we thought it would be better.
The front desk was EXTREMELY nice and the view is great. We could not go down to the fireplace by the creek b/c it was closed due to all the snow.
The location was great and when we got snowed in and could not leave, we could not have asked for it to happen at a better place!
We did ski at Ober, and while it got the job done, the slopes are small, and you end up spending most of your time on the lift or in line for it.
I highly recommend the Lodge at Buckberry creek, and can't wait to stay there in the fall!

Great!! But off the Beaten Path

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Blackberry for four nights in January 2005. The lodge is nice, typical lodge filled with antiques and a big fireplace. The rooms are nice. Nice linens/towels. It is somewhat overpriced...this is not the Ritz!! More like the Marriott.

The breakfast was lame, they definately could have done better.

We will not stay at the Buckberry again, only because we like to stay closer to the activity center. Where you can walk from your room down the street and have dinner, have a few beers at the Smokey Mountain Brewery...which is great!! You have to drive too far to get up to the Buckberry...it's perfect if you prefer the isolation.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!

from ChristaMiami
We loved everything about this lodge! The people at the front desk and restaurant were always pleasant and accommodating. The food was divine. We stayed in a suite called Crow's Nest. It is on the top floor, with a wonderful view of the mountains. The suite was well appointed and extremely comfortable. The kitchen was so practical (especially since we traveled with our toddler), and we loved the complimentary sodas, gourmet hot chocolate and teas. The bathroom was luxurious and made bathing such a pleasurable and relaxing experience. Make sure to take a walk down the trail to Buckberry Creek and enjoy the pavilion at the bottom of the mountain. When we went, there was a fire going in the large, impressive fireplace. We put on some great music and relaxed in rocking chairs in front of the fireplace. What a treat!

Worth every Penny

The Lodge at Buckberry Creek was a great experience. Me and my wife have never been treated like royality anywhere. The Price was a bit expensive, but I will return. The Breakfast bar was beautiful with warm muffins, and the biggest and best Cinnamon rolls I had ever eaten. and the best part was the Chef a large fellow was also our waiter. He recommemded the best of the menu, and prepared it and served it. The Gatlinbagel is the best Item on the menu. My wife had the french toast. but it was very sweet. The restaurant was closed at night. I was looking forward to eating there. We decided to order pizza instead.
The only thing I didnt like was the fact that our Maid was spanish, and didnt understand anything I needed during our entire stay. I had to call the lodge office everytime I needed anything. We will be back very soon

One of the Best!

My husband and I chose the Lodge at Buckberry Creek because of its proximity to both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. It was everything we expected and more! The room was beautiful! We loved the "timed" fireplace and the bathroom with seperate shower and large jacuzzi tub (my favorite!). The kitchen was just the perfect size for the two of us and I was floored by the complimentary sodas, teas, and coffee (you just don't find that anymore!). Each night cookies were brought to our door and, after a day of skiing or sight-seeing, it was a welcomed treat. The food on the menu in the lodge was bit over-priced but the free continental breakfast was more than enough to get us started in the mornings. Would definitely recommend this lodge and we will be visiting again soon!

In the wilderness only five minutes from Gatlinburg.

from travelluvers
What an experience to travel just five minutes from the hustle-bustle of Gatlinburg and find yourself in the quiet beauty of the Smoky Mountains. We loved our experience, stayed in a suite mid-week and it was wonderfully quiet.
The rooms are beautifully detailed with natural woods and charming fabrics; the linen and bed were very comfortable. We appreciated the large bathroom with two-person tub at the end of a busy day of hiking and exploring the wonderful Smokies.
The staff was very friendly and gave us turn-by-turn driving directions to our day's destinations.
Cookies were provided with nightly turn-down service.
We enjoyed our breakfasts on the balcony overlooking the misty mountains.
Not all was perfect, however. Our Tuesday night dinner, when we were the only diners, was below our expectations. The next morning we quietly complained to the manager, hoping that our constructive criticism would be of assistance and not expecting anything more. You can imagine our surprise when management took the entire dinner cost off our bill (the dinner was not all bad; some dishes were just too salty).
Do enjoy the pavillion while you are there.
We would go back in a minute, and highly recommend the Lodge.

Enjoyable experience

from Bumpkins
I stayed here Oct 17 and 18. The location is high above Gatlinburg, which means not only beautiful mountain views but also a thrill ride up and down on a narrow steep curvy road. What they do when it's icy must be a challenge. My room was on the second floor in building 5. One quirkiness -the door does not lock behind you - you must use your key. I had a kitchenette, fireplace, couch, king bed, jacuzzi, huge shower, the complimentary cookies and sodas. Night one I had the building almost to myself so it was very quiet. Night two there were more guests and I could hear all of the comings and goings. No dinner served Sunday night and Monday night, so my dinner was on Tuesday night and was exellent -- out on the porch overlooking the sunset. Service was exemplary. I also agree with previous reviews that for the price the included breakfast could be a bit more lavish rather than just muffins and granola. I had more choices at the Days Inn in Asheville the previous week. Perhaps similar to what is offered at some European hotels - hard boiled eggs, cheese, meats, bread/rolls -- could be added. All in, however, this is a special, magical place to be enjoyed. The deer nibbling on their breakfast below my balcony set the wonderful tone of the unique experience. Highly recommended.

Beautiful setting and lodge, but request a top level room.

from JWREHR
First of all, this lodge is so above anything else in the Gatlinburg area that you must experience it to understand. The lodge is beautiful, clean and luxurious. The staff is helpful, yet not overbearing. The restaurant is expensive, but the view is worth the extra cost. Also, not having to go into the town of Gatlinburg to eat is worth every extra penny. Do make the effort to go down the trail to the "Pavillion". It is a secluded open air pavillion with adirondack chairs surrounding a fire and a hammock if you choose to really relax. It is at the bottom of the mountain and located by a running stream. It is the most relaxing place I've been in a long time. If you can't make it back up the trail, there is a telephone in the pavillion. You can ring the front desk and a member of the staff will pick you up in the Swiss army truck. The ride in that is a thrill itself. The ONLY drawback to the lodge is the noise if you are not in a top level room/suite. We were on the bottom and heard every move the guests above us made. Next time we will request to be on the top level. The lodge at Buckberry Creek is a breath of fresh air in this area. I would visit again, but avoid the "cheesy" town of Gatlinburg altogether.

m afraid

from buckheaddude
Just stayed at the Lodge for a second time following a splendid first stay in February following their opening. One of the reasons we enjoyed the Lodge so much was the wonderful food served there. The executive chef had spent time here in Atlanta at some of the best restaurants and it was definitely reflected in our two dinners previously. THIS IS NOT THE CASE NOW! We were disappointed with food more on the calibre of a Friday's or Calhoun's. What made it even worse was that it took forever. Twenty-five minutes for an appetizer!! And the dining room was practically empty! Head downtown to one of the chains-at least you'll know what to expect.

Perfect Mountain Retreat

from LondonZac
After travelling thoughout Tennessee it was perfect to arrive at the Lodge for a few relaxing days before moving on again. These are beautifully arranged Lodges with excellent views over the mountains and quiet and peaceful. Inside they are wonderfully decorated and we had a hot tub in the bathroom which looked out through the bedroom over the mountains. The service was excellent and very helpful, and they all try and make you feel part of a very nice community. I would recommend dining at the Lodge because it was excellent food, and far surpassed anything available in Gatlinburg, but bring your own wine which they will serve to you. The only problem with this place is that it is so nice you won't want to leave to explore the National Park. I am happy to recommend this place to anyone, it is definitely the only place to stay in this area.

Top Local Tips for Gatlinburg

A nice place to eat Try the The Park Grill for dinner. The it is not inexpensive, entrees range anywhere between $15-$28 but the food is very good and the salad bar is extensive. The reception staff was accommodating although our waitresses were not very friendly. Not rude by any means but just not warm and genuine.....and we ate there 2 of the nights we were in Gatlinburg. Stop a welcome center and ask for a coupon book, in it there is a $5 off coupon for this restaurant and many other G'burg attractions..

Dollywood Be sure to go to Dollywood during the International Music Festival (spring time). And if you can, do it on a week day. The park is very crowded on the weekends.

Not our cup of tea We didn't care for Gatlinburg proper....though I imagine if you have kids, it would keep them busy. The Smokey Mountain National Park is beautiful though. That made this a worthwhile destination for us. Don't get suckered by the $10 parking in town. Find the municipal parking lot. For dinner, we'd recommend The Peddler. Great steaks and a wonderful salad bar. Best time for this trip is just off season. Even then it's crowded but less so. Try for week days as there are less people.
