We visited the Buckhorn Inn about twenty years ago when it was under different ownership. It was lovely then, but I'll have to admit, it was exquisite this time around. The owners have kept the charm of the old inn but added many amenities that blend the old with the new. The rooms are so roomy with a cozy fireplace, jacuzzi and small kitchenette. Our small balcony had the most incredible view of Mt. LeConte, with the view changing every few minutes as clouds and mist moved in and out. The scrumptious breakfasts allowed choices that many inns don't offer. The four-course dinners were equally fabulous (we purchased three cookbooks to take to family and friends). The service was impeccable and the owners, John and Lee, were hospitable and knowledgeable about area attractions. Our stay was over a rainy weekend, but the library, the game room and covered porch downstairs gave us plenty of room to stretch and relax. The nature trails and gardens are well-maintained and the two beautiful swans were an intriguing extra to observe as they made ready their spring nest. Without a doubt, we will not wait another 20 years to return. We plan to try a winter weekend and hope to get snowed in. It was truly and anniversary to remember.
