Note: The hotel is rebuilding from wildfires and only one building, The Woods, is currently open. Just outside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, this Gatlinburg, Tennessee gem has a loyal set of lodgers that keep returning for its outstanding mountain views, spacious accommodations, and the friendly staff. But you'll have to appreciate rustic accommodations to be pleased. The Lodge at Buckberry Creek is just that – a lodge – with an "Adirondack-style" decor. Most vacationers choose to take advantage of the area's hiking and fishing opportunities. If you have less-active, more luxurious tastes, consider indulging in the soaking tub (there's one in each room) with the room's Molton Brown bath amenities. You'll find this property around 35 miles southeast of Knoxville and about 220 miles east of Nashville.

Critic Reviews

Birmingham Magazine


Designed in the style of the great camps in upstate New York and California's Yosemite and Yellowstone parks, The Lodge at Buckberry Creek offers all the charm of a log cabin in the mountains along with modern amenities and services of an upscale hotel.



Dubbed 'The Great Camp of the Smokies,' this elegant, Adirondack-style retreat and restaurant opened in 2005.



This mountain retreat mirrors the late-19th-century 'great camps' of the Adirondacks, where wealthy families escaped to grandiose compounds without leaving behind the luxuries and conveniences of home.


Designed like a luxury retreat from a bygone era, this hotel is the real deal in Gatlinburg, offering an authentic mountain lodge experience without sacrificing any comforts. It's an ideal location for travelers who want rustic seclusion while remaining close to downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.
