Property description

Truly, Buffalo roam on this private 65 acre little piece of heaven tucked away in the mountains. Whether watching the sunrise over the mountain peaks while the Smoky Mountains clear up for a beautiful day, or setting your sights on our herd of buffalo coming for their morning oats. You will not be disappointed while you are enjoying a hot cup of coffee or cocoa on our large back deck of a gorgeous log cabin!

If you are looking for a quiet 'get away from it all' retreat, this is it! Enjoy long hikes on the property, fishing within walking distance from the log cabin or take a trip into town to do some shopping or antiquing.

Children will love the hike through the woods to the brand new play area, The BC Corral! This custon designed area has everything from swings, zip line, slides, teeter toter, cargo nets, rock wall & even a horse shoe pit for the adults! The kids will love it here!

A vacation at the Bison Overlook Lodge is surely one that your family will always enjoy looking back on!

We are pet friendly, size doesn't matter!

Owner info

About the owner: My brothers & my husband had shared a vision of expanding my fathers buffalo ranch when additional property became available to purchase. With all our knowledge & experiences combine we have built 3 log homes & have been renting them out since 2004. All the furniture in this cabin has been handmade by the wood on the property! Even the covered wagon bed, that was custom built my my father. Once my husband retires from the US Army in about 8 yrs our dream will be to build our log cabin on the property & be more hands on. God has blessed us beyond our wildest dreams. We hope you love the mountains like we have all come to love being transplants from a very flat NY!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
While staying at Bison Overlook Lodge we feel you will really enjoy the peace & tranquility of being secluded on 65 acres. So many of our previous guest have wrote back & told us they had all these plans to sight see but then just loved hanging out in the cabin together enjoying the game room & the children all love the uniquely designed playground as well as seeing the miniature horse, buffalo, goats & llamas!
