Just five miles from downtown Gatlinburg, Tennessee, secluded in the spectacular beauty of the Smoky Mountains, the colonial-styled Buckhorn Inn offers a tranquil bed and breakfast lodging retreat for the discriminating traveler.

The lodge's main reception room greets guests with a wood-beamed ceiling, stone fireplace, fine art, and grand piano. Just outside the lodge, a flagstone terrace is furnished with old-fashioned oak rocking chairs that will strike a perfect tempo as you read from one of the many books the inn has on its shelves. Further out, you'll find a placid pond stocked with bass and carp for on-site fishing plus a recently completed meditation labyrinth for inspired reflection and relaxation.

The Buckhorn Inn accommodates guests with six rooms and three premier rooms in the lodge and seven cottages and two guest houses scattered throughout the surrounding dogwoods. All lodging accommodations have private baths and feature antiques, artwork, and English chintz. Premier rooms feature fireplaces, Jacuzzis, private decks, king beds, cable television, highspeed Internet access, and kitchen bars with refrigerator and coffee maker. Each of the property's seven cottages and two guest houses has a wood-burning fireplace. Other amenities, varying from cottage to cottage, include cable and satellite television, coffee makers, clock radios, whirlpool tubs, private decks, and kitchenettes.

The Buckhorn not only serves up a hearty breakfast, with room service available, but also is the only inn in the Smokies to offer guests the option of dinner. Its sumptuous four-course evening meal contains only the freshest of ingredients carefully selected by the Buckhorn's resident chef. It is served by soft lamplight in a dining room that overlooks the mountains.

Between breakfast and dinner, you may want to explore your surroundings on horseback or take a backpack and go hiking. Don't be surprised if you run across a few deer or maybe a rambling bear or two. You'll also be amazed by all the many birds that take refuge in the Smokies. And if you're not into exploring, there are plenty of fish-filled rivers and lakes to sample. Guests also enjoy the area's nearby golf facilities, and there are several craft stores, theaters, and amusement parks worth checking out as well.

At Buckhorn Inn, one finds ample opportunity to appreciate natural splendor and enjoy peaceful respite from the hurly-burly of daily life.

Douglas Bebb, a local Renaissance Man, built the Buckhorn in 1938, and today it stands as East Tennessee's oldest operating inn.

The Buckhorn is surrounded by 25 acres of open meadow and verdant forest that sprung to life thanks to Bebb, the forester, who planted more than 3,000 hemlocks and white pines.

Bebb, the artist, carved buckhead sculptures and signs to advertise the inn, and as an amateur botanist, this worldly soul discovered and patented a rare dogwood that he named Fragrant Cloud.

But Gatlinburg's renowned cook, gardener, carpenter, and genial host proved wisest when he discovered nature's ability to renew the spirit amidst the hypnotic beauty of the Smoky Mountain's Mount LeConte, Trillium Gap, and Winnesoka Knob.

It's no surprise then that Bebb chose these three natural wonders to cradle his beloved Buckhorn Inn, and it's no wonder that their therapeutic powers continue to work wonders for those who visit.

Today, Lee and John carry this spirit on with their own wonderful blend of gracious hospitality and warmth.
