About Cheryl Hillis
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 4 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!
Cheryl Hillis purchased this Cabin in 2007

Great Family Vacation
We spent a week at Bison Overlook and the entire family enjoyed the stay. The grandchildren loved the goats and miniature ponies! The home was comfortable and clean. The lower level is filled with game tables to entertain both the children and the adults. We are already talking about returning in the fall.
So glad you all enjoyed Bison Overlook Lodge! On your next stay, book directly thrugh us to receive our past guest discount! :).
We had a great time! The home was clean and well equipped. The grounds were amazing and our kids LOVED all the animals.
My only complaint is the "sound barriers" in the house.
Seemed like the walls and floor were paper thin, just makes it hard when you have littles.
Other than that we would definitely stay again, maybe another cabin.
Cheryl was wonderful to work with as well.
Book it...you won't regret it!!!
So glad you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for taking time to leave a review.
Holidays in Heaven...
We just spent the past several days in Bison Overlook Lodge and we couldn't be more pleased. The log cabin is absolutely beyond words. When I walked in, the first thing I saw was the amazing, huge Christmas tree in the great room. After looking all around, it showed that someone took the time to decorate with detail. It was tastefully done and added to the holiday spirit. Besides the holiday decorations, the decor of the lodge was lovely from the pictures, the accent pillows, the knickknacks to the bedding, etc... You need nothing for comfort as the home has it all. The kitchen is fully stocked and I was able to cook each meal without missing anything. In fact, I think the drawers were better equipped than in my own home.
The view from every window is breathtaking. The property does not feel like a rental; it feels like a home. Each night we had a nice fire so we could keep the heater off (or very low). The fire heated the entire house. We spent an afternoon in the hot tub that was perfect to warm the bones and relax a tired body after hiking the many trails all around. I loved that each morning the goats and mini horses came straight to our back balcony until we came out to pet them and of course, take many pictures of them. Every now and then, a baby would get out of the fence and I had to push him back through to his side. The bison are simply an attraction that one never grows tired of seeing, especially each morning at the feeding area.
If you are looking a for a get-away, then look no further. You have found a piece of Heaven. Speaking of which, look up on a clear night and be amazed by the night sky. Truly a spectacular display! THANK YOU for the perfect mini-vacation. My only complaint: NOT being able to stay longer. Next time I will plan better in advance to book for a much longer time.
Thank you so much for taking time to leave us a wonderful review! I am so thrilled that you enjoyed our little piece of heaven as well!
Thanksgiving at Bison Overlook Lodge
My family and I just spent the most wonderful Thanksgiving together at Bison Overlook Lodge. The cabin had everything we needed including pots, pans, and casserole dishes to make a proper Thanksgiving feast, a crib and swing for our baby, toys for our toddler, and a kennel for our dogs. There is something for everyone to do and enjoy. My toddler loved walking to the playground and feeding the goats and miniature horses that walked right up to the fence in our backyard everyday, the adults enjoyed relaxing on the porch (I swung with my baby in the hammock swing every day) or in the hot tub and taking in the beautiful views all around. The level backyard makes playing with kids and dogs easy and fun. I highly recommend walking down to see the buffalo get fed at least once while you're there. It's exciting to see these amazing creatures up close, and you get to meet the friendly ranch dogs Frisbee and Cody. We were also lucky enough to meet Harold and Harriet who are so nice and spent some time with us telling stories about the history of the ranch and their plans for its future. Cheryl is super helpful and quick to respond if you have a question. We felt like our family spent Thanksgiving surrounded by family. No one wanted to leave, and my toddler shed tears over having to say goodbye to "the buffalo house." It was an incredible vacation. Our family will be back many more times!
Thank you for taking time to leave us a review! I am so glad to hear you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving stay!
Also, next time you visit, if you book directly through us, be sure to ask about our past guest discount!
This cabin was perfect, it is exactly as described, the kitchen is well stocked, it has everything that you need to prepare your meals, all beds in all rooms are really comfortable, the living room was nice(it has satellital tv, internet, movies, books) but to be honest we did not spend much time in the living room, we were out enjoying the views and nice weather, watching the animals, grilling our food and later having a great time around the fire pit. The play room inside the cabin is also great, you can be there a lot of time and you will not realize how long you have been there, there are also some toys for toddlers to play. The play area is also really nice and the "hicking"(5-10 mins walking) to get there is great too. The only bad thing I can think of about this trip is that we stayed here only 1 night, in the moment we left we were already planning on getting back and we will hopefully soon. Cheryl was great in providing all we need. Overall Awesome!! :)
Glad you all enjoyed your stay! We also just concreted the bottom half of the driveway last week! Also, past guest will b=never pay a deposit & will get our past guest discount when booking directly through us :).

Buffalo Creek Vacations, NC
Greatest vacation at Bison Overlook Lodge
I just can say that a week was not enough for my family. This place is so amazing that we didn't want to leave. My kids loved the cabin, specially the playroom. We live in Miami and that was the first time for my children in a place where nature is everything. I really recommend it if you want to get away from the noise and stress. Buffalo Creek Vacation is just a few miles from Asheville. The cabin was equipped with Cable TV and WiFi Internet. If you really want to disconnect, all you have to do is turn the devices off.
So glad you all enjoyed your stay! We really appreciate you taking time to leave us a 5 star review! Also, we appreciate our guest & when you come back, if you book directly through us we will waive the deposit & give you a past guest discount!
