When we saw the Highland oxen as we pulled in we knew we were in for a surprise and it didn't end there! In addition to the unique animals which included American bison, llamas and mini-horses we were engrossed in the beauty of the surrounding mountainsides with well constructed and comfortable cabins nestled among them. Our children thoroughly enjoyed the up close viewing of several amazing animals! Our cabin was clean, had ample space for our family and just the right amenities so as to make the stay enjoyable. The fire pits were great for roasting marshmallows and good conversation while the Jacuzzi under the moonlight was a relaxing end to our day!

We LOVED Buffalo Creek and can't wait to come back! It is beautiful and we made so many great memories in just a few days. My kids are already asking when we can come back. Buffalo Creek will certainly become our new family tradition. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. Thanks for the beautiful memories that I will store up and cherish always!

We had six family members from six years old to 99 years old and it was a wonderful place for everyone. The owners were very friendly and easy to work with. I would recommend this home to anyone who wants to be in the North Carolina mountains. My grandchildren definitely enjoyed the animals and the wide opened spaces. We look forward to returning to this relaxing and beautiful place! Thanks again

We had a great time a Bison Overlook. The house was beautiful and just as advertised. We had breakfast on the deck while the sun rose over the mountains. The deck was also perfect in the afternoons on a hot day because it was then in the shade. If you got chilly in the shade, all you had to do was move to the front porch and sit and read in the hammock chair in the afternoon sun before it disappeared behind the mountain. We spent a couple evenings in the hot tub and squeezed in a fire in the fire pit. Don?t let the suspended bed in the master bedroom intimidate you ? if you don?t like the gentle swaying, Cheryl kindly provides blocks so that it can be made as steady as any other bed you?ve slept in. The animals surrounding the house are a lot of fun. The mini-horses and goats would come up to the fence to greet us when we were sitting outside. It was also fun to watch them chase each other around the corral. We could sometimes see the bison grazing on the hills and the llamas coming out of the woods ? all from the deck. Our teenagers got a kick out of the animals, and I believe younger kids would love them even more. There?s so much to do in the area, too: rafting, fly fishing, hiking, Biltmore, Asheville, Dollywood. Bison Overlook is a wonderful place to spend a vacation.

Had a wonderful time staying at Bison Overlook. Cabin was clean, spacious and very nicely decorated. The owners are readily available for any needs and enjoy talking about the animals or meeting you to open the store at your convinience. We will definitely be coming here again.

Bison Overlook Lodge is a great place for couples, families, and/or friends to unwind and reconnect. From the youngest who was 10 months old and up, there was something for EVERYONE to do. The cabin was WONDERFUL and exceeded our expectations. The deck was beautiful for sitting, relaxing, reading a book, and watching the sunset/sunrise. The hot tub was wonderful and used daily. The swinging bed was so comfortable and rocked us to sleep each night. We loved watching the animals and the scenery was absolutely beautiful!! We especially appreciated the "Smores Basket" and welcome sign that greeted us as soon as we checked in. The game room provided entertainment at night after a day of exploring and sightseeing. The kitchen was fully stocked and allowed us to cook some great meals! The fireplace and outdoor fire pit were wonderful additions. We just can't say enough wonderful things about this place. The front porch had an awesome swing, rocker, hammock, and benches that provided plenty of seating for all. Having the full washer and dryer was also a great convenience. They had great fall decorations out, and the cabin was so clean and pretty. The windows provided plenty of natural light. There were also books and movies available, if you wanted it. I had to do a little work while away, and the internet was fabulous, no "lag time", so if you need internet, it is there. Thank you to the staff of Bison Overlook Lodge for opening their ranch to others so we can all enjoy it!!

We had a fun time at the bison ranch. Cabin was beautiful and very clean. Spent our days hiking, visiting the animals and enjoying the views from the deck. Spent our nights by the fire pit roasting marshmallows, relaxing in the hot tub and playing in the game room downstairs. Would definitely recommend this location. Owners were very friendly and provided excellent customer service.

Our family had a wonderful time at the bison ranch. Our cabin was very clean and comfortable. Our days were spent hiking, visiting with the animals, relaxing in the hot tub and enjoying the views from the back porch. We also spent each night around the fire pit toasting marshmellows. Harold and Harriett were so very nice and knowledgeable about the area. I would recommend this cabin. Note - you'll need a vehicle that can handle steep inclines with gravel.

The Bison Overlook cabin was just as described and more! The only problem we had was getting up the steep gravel driveway in our minivan. It can be done, but not easy! That being said, everything else was perfect. Even though we knew we were on a bison farm and expected to see some animals, we were delightfully surprised to see the miniature horses and goats right at the fence in our "backyard" every morning. What a treat for the kids to feed and pet them every day. Our dog especially enjoyed being in the great outdoors and meeting up with them. The cabin felt very homey and was spacious and clean and tastefully decorated. The owners were quick to reply to our queries and to open their outpost when we needed some fire supplies and goat feed (an ample amount of firewood provided but we needed more kindling). We loved this vacation so much we are considering coming back to experience it in another season. Everyone in the area was super friendly and helpful. Places we enjoyed nearby were: the Blue Rooster for dinner, The diner on 529 (next to the Pilot gas station) for breakfast, Socco falls and the Blue Ridge Parkway drive, Cherokee and the Indian Museum, Asheville downtown, Dark Ride ghost tours, and the Biltmore. Thanks Buffalo Creek Vacations for an awesome stay! I would absolutely recommend this property.

Definitely recommend if you are looking for a unique get-away. This is one you will remember! We stayed 5 nights in January 2016 - husband, self, 2 school-aged boys and our dog. I'm the vacation planner in my family and was thrilled when everyone gave me a thumbs up for finding this unique spot! The cabin has great views and is comfortable and clean. We liked that there are other cabins nearby, but you still have plenty of privacy. Cheryl is very responsive. One thing to note is the overall nature of a cabin - walls/floors are not soundproof. We expected this going in and it did not bother us, but keep in mind if you have people in your group who sleep/wake at different times. We all enjoyed the farm and thought the location was great for exploring the area. In addition to relaxing in the cabin & hot tub and enjoying the farm, we spent a day at Cataloochee to ski, another for snow tubing, a day around Asheville to hike and eat dinner (a dog friendly town) and drove to Cataloochee Valley for Great Smoky Mountain National Park (park was closed due to winter road conditions, but still a beautiful drive and worth our time).
