Buffalo Creek Lodge spells AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of a very few rentals at the top of our rental list with VRBO. We found it to be so relaxing in front of the fire or sitting on the screened back porch overlooking the Smokies in the distance. It reminded us of an Adirondack camp cabin with all the comforts and amenities. The location's access is just perfect for sightseeing daytrips in all directions. There are so many places of interest in the area. Many thanks to Beau for his assistance! Also, don't forget your fly rods should you come for a stay. Beautiful country and mountains/streams/lakes everywhere to enjoy!

Great vacation cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our family of four, but could have easily accommodated 3-4 more people. My daughters loved having their own porches off the upstairs bedrooms. The wifi was not very good, but it's a short ride back to Bryson City if you really need it, or use a hot spot. Beautiful, secluded, rustic yet it had plenty of amenities. Games and puzzles provided. Clean cabin, plenty of linens, and I was very happy to have a washer/dryer on site. The only thing missing was more time there!

We actually stayed nextdoor at Buffalo Creek Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is perfect for two! It is nicely appointed and had all the amenities you would need. The location is tucked away in the mountains, but just a few minutes from town.

Stayed the Entire Month of October with Friends & Family Stopping by to Visit

  • 5 of 5

We returned a year later to enjoy the entire month at Buffalo Creek Lodge. Beau always makes us feel like part of the family. We watched the construction of Buffalo Trace above the Lodge. We spent the majority of our time relaxing on the property, enjoyed "Supper 3, several Supper 7's, and even a Supper 10 at The Pointe for Liar's Club II. Those who have been here know what this means. Side trips this time included Waynesville, Sylva, Mingo Falls at Cherokee, and then Pisgaw Forest to view Looking Glass Falls and Sliding Rock Falls, with a lunch stop at Hawg Wild BBQ. Lots of turkey, deer, and elk in the Smoky Mountains National Park. Great hiking trails and trout fishing. We see something new each year we return. We will return for October 2017.

Owner's Response: One of the fringe benefits I've had as "caretaker" of our Buffalo Creek Vacation Rental properties is meeting great new friends. Friendship is a mutual effort and it must be nourished to evolve into something more meaningful and lasting than just being nice to people you meet for a two night weekend or a monthly stay.. Thank you dear people that I know know you as my friend.

We Just Keep Coming Back

  • 5 of 5

Where are the other reviews? Beau keeps this placed booked so far in advanced that his "regular clients" want to refrain from making a review to keep this place a secret. He works hard to make sure you feel welcome and is constantly upgrading the facilities. We stayed last October, this October, and already have intentions to stay next October at Buffalo Creek Lodge. If you can get reservations, make them soon! We enjoy our visits with Beau, and meeting new friends at The Pointe for campfires and BBQ, or an occasional beverage at the Cowboy Bar. The views are absolutely amazing. At night you can actually see headlights up at Clingman's Dome from The Pointe. You are close enough to ride the Tail of the Dragon and enjoy the sights associated with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Rafting and kayaking are nearby. You can shop in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, Ashville, Cherokee, and Waynesville. Or you can simply set in front of a roaring fire inside, or rock on the porch of Buffalo Creek Lodge, enjoying the sights and sounds while relaxing in the mountains.
