How to Get There
The Lodge at Buckberry Creek was a lovely quiet haven from the horrors of gatlinburg and pigeon forge. It’s super close to the national park, the rooms are big & comfortable. Due to the very sad fire occurring in 2017, the lodge no longer has restaurant or bar facilities but Cindy left recommendations with us for local places that delivered and you can also cook in your studio. It’s really heartbreaking to see what damage was done to the lodge but they still have beautiful views and gave great southern hospitality. I really hope the family rebuilds!
The Buckberry Lodge is a good place to stay. It is in a very quiet location. Away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Gatlinburg. The rooms are very clean, spacious and very nicely decorated. The balcony is nice to sit and enjoy the view. If you like to go to a restaurant you have to drive to town. We would stay here again.
This is our second year staying at The Lodge at Buckberry Creek. Yet again it was a perfect experience. Cindy was so accommodating and made our trip effortless and absolutely wonderful. Something that is wonderful about this lodge is not only the views but the customer service. It is a very personal experience and it makes you feel special and valued. We were able to use the firepit during this stay and listening to the crackling fire and enjoying the crisp mountain air...priceless. We stayed in the exact same room as last year and I am just obsessed with it. You feel like you're so far away but really you're just 5 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg. Even though there is only one building currently due to the 2016 fires, I couldn't have asked for better. It is truly a gem and I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY suggest you stay here if you're looking for that rustic feel with a beautiful mountain view. We also got lucky it snowed on Sunday! Talk about beautiful!
The majority of this lodge was burned in the fire of 2016. The website advertises a luxury experience, in-room massages and a restaurant, among other things. There is no front desk (guests enter via lock box) and certainly no restaurant or additional services. The rooms are not serviced by housekeeping. The walls and floors are extremely thin making it very difficult to sleep if the family above you is making any noise whatsoever. I would not recommend this place if you're looking for what is advertised on the web site.
We absolutely loved our time at the Lodge! A gorgeous view even on the ground level overlooking Mount LeConte! Loved sitting a sipping coffee or wine on our private deck surrounded by mountains beauty! Cute decor and clean room. Loved the fireplace and spa tub! Might need a bigger water heater though. Since the restaurant and other parts of the property burned down, it is ran more like a vrbo. So no daily room service or breakfast but was not a problem for us at all. Full small kitchen with anything we needed and centrally located to hit any nearby restaurant. Cindy was great and we had everything that we needed. The only thing I wish were different, was the bed. Not horrible, but was definitely glad to get back to my Serta at home. But otherwise, couldn’t have asked for more! Can’t wait to go back! And look forward to staying when the lodge is all rebuilt!
