Buckhaven on Thunder Mountain

Impeccable custom home with stunning Mount LeConte and Cove Mountain views, fire pit, movie theater, and game room

Welcome to Buckhaven on Thunder Mountain, an impeccable four-bedroom, six-bath custom home just minutes from the Pigeon Forge Parkway. This stunning home rests on almost 2 acres and features unparalleled views of Mount LeConte and Cove Mountain, making it the ideal respite for your Smoky Mountain vacation. Buckhaven can easily accommodate 16 guests, making it ideal for families or large groups.

Each room in the home is uniquely crafted to highlight the beauty inside Buckhaven while never forgetting that the mountains are the primary focus. The floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room on the main level soar to a height of 25’, allowing for natural light to flow into the space while also providing a fantastic view of Smoky Mountains National Park.

Mountain vistas are plentiful from two separate seating areas in the living room, replete with curved conversational sofas and glider rocking chairs. This room features a see-through fireplace—ideal for chilly nights—and a sizable wall-mounted flatscreen TV. A promenade deck with plenty of outdoor seating, a hot tub, and an outdoor covered kitchen with a built-in Sommerset 40’ grill and rotisserie, side burner, and full-size sink can be accessed just off this room—making it an ideal spot for cooking al fresco!

The stylish and well-equipped kitchen features Thermador Professional Series appliances—including a built-in oversized refrigerator/freezer, 6-burner gas cooktop, double ovens, and an under-the-cabinet icemaker—sure to please seasoned and novice cooks alike.

Guests can enjoy their culinary creations at the custom-made eight-seat dining table adjacent to the kitchen while enjoying the splendid mountain views. There are two half-baths on the main floor—one in the foyer and one in the laundry room.

The adults and children in your party will surely enjoy the home’s lower level, which features a Game Room, Snack Kitchen, and a Movie Theater. The Game Room is ideal for friendly competition and features a Golden Tee arcade machine, a pool table, and a multi-game table.

Step back in time in the Snack Kitchen, which was designed to be reminiscent of the old-fashioned soda fountains that were popular in the 1940s and 1950s. It has a sink, microwave, and a full-sized refrigerator.
The Movie Theater boasts an 80” wall-mounted TV and six theater chairs—perfect for watching the latest blockbuster!

After a busy day spent in the “great outdoors,” guests can get some rest in one of four well-appointed bedrooms and the loft. There are three bedrooms and three full baths on the lower level:
The Adventure Room features a twin dresser bed, a loft bed with a twin bed on top, a futon, and a game table, making it perfect for the kids in your group. The Antler Suite has a king-sized bed. This bedroom shares a full bathroom with the Adventure Room. The Pine Cone Suite comes replete with a king-sized bed and a full en-suite bath.

The Antler and Pine Cone suites have patios that lead to a grassy knoll, a fire pit, and comfortable seating. This is the ideal spot to take in the views while discussing the day’s events while toasting marshmallows! The stairs from the firepit area lead to the promenade deck mentioned earlier.

The Sante Fe primary bedroom on the home’s main level features a king-sized bed with furniture hand-made by local artisans in Sevierville. It has its own master bath with dual vanity, his/her toilet rooms, a shower, a separate tub, and a walk-in closet/dressing room.

The loft has two comfortable queen futons, a sitting area, and a desk.

When you book your stay at this cabin, you receive free admission to popular Smoky Mountain attractions with Xplorie. This program entitles our guests to one free adult admission ticket, per night stay, to attractions like Ripley’s Aquarium, WonderWorks, Rowdy Bear Coaster, and more.

I really enjoyed my stay at Buckhaven on Thunder Mountain! The space was perfect for my travel group, with tons of space to sleep, hang out, and enjoy the breathtaking views of the mountainside from the wonderful home. We enjoyed using the wonderful amenities that are provided with the house, such as the home theater, hot tub, pool table, and games. We also loved the incredible outdoor kitchen, which was perfect for a nice outdoor BBQ dinner. The home itself was well decorated and stunning, with perfect attention to detail in each room, and the house was clean and tidy upon arrival. I also enjoyed the fact that the house came stocked with toiletries in the bathroom, kitchen supplies, and cleaning supplies. Additionally, the hosts were incredible, ready and willing to help with questions at any time, and left clear instructions for just about everything in the house. Overall, this was an incredible trip and would love to thank the first-class hosts for providing an unforgettable experience.
