Home Description

Bison Escape is a part of Buffalo Creek Vacations, which is less than a three minute drive to the main ranch. The legend has been told that on certain nights of the year and when the moon is just right, the Buffalo Creek Vacations bison and their llama friends escape from their normal stomping ground to get away from it all. While at Bison Escape, they enjoy true tranquility and relaxation at this private getaway.

Buffalo Creek Vacations is where the buffalo really roam on this private 65 acre little piece of heaven tucked away in the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. 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 from our viewing platform at the feeding corral, you will not be disappointed. Meanwhile, relax and enjoy a cup of coffee or cocoa on the large front porch of this log cabin, or enjoy a refreshing beverage after a long soak in the hot tub!

If you are looking for a quiet 'get away from it all' retreat, this is it! Enjoy long hikes on the main ranch property, fishing within walking distance from the log cabin or take a trip into town to do some shopping or antiquing. Bison Escape features easy vehicular access on a flat road. As with all Buffalo Creek Vacation rental cabins, the kitchen comes fully stocked with all cooking supplies essential to preparing a great family meal.

Once over on the main area of Buffalo Creek Vacations, children will love the hike through the woods to the play area, The BC Corral! This custom designed area has everything from swings, zip line, slides, teeter totter, cargo nets, rock wall & even a horse shoe pit for the adults! The kids will love it here!

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

From the moment my family walked into this beautiful log cabin, we fell in love & we all agreed it will be a yearly tradition! The attention to detail was impeccable! Everything was done so tastefully. The kids enjoyed looking up at the stars while in the hot tub. We had hours of fun w/ challenging games of foosball & darts! Grandma even one once!! The s'mores every night created memories for my kids that they will cherish for a lifetime!! I can't forget to mention to go see the bison feeding! Wow...what magnificent creatures they are!! You are right there next tom them!! Great time was had by all & we are already thinking of what week to come back next summer! Thanks Buffalo Creek for making such an amazing place that we can retreat to!! The LaRoose Family!

So incredibly amazing !

When I showed my kids the cabin I chose online...they were super excited!!! They just loved the idea of being on the bison ranch. Our cabin was clean & super cozy & decorated so tastefully!! The cousins all enjoyed the game room & every night was spent in the hot tub by the adults!! We will make this a yearly tradition! The folks at Buffalo Creek were really friendly too!! We met Harold, he fed the bison & then his wife I think, (Harriet was her name), rides the tractor & she got us the bison meat. Every time we had a question, Cheryl responded very fast. We will surely be telling our friends about Buffalo Creek Vacations. Thanks for making it possible to make lasting memories!!

"This is the Best Place We Have Ever Stayed Mom"

Stayed here for two nights with my family right after Christmas. This log cabin in the woods (but not far from civilization) was decorated for Christmas and had all amenities from home and more. The wood burning fireplace and hot tub were perfect for the cold nights. The game room was equipped for everyone from toddlers to seniors. Dart board, pool table, air hockey, barbies, puzzles, toy cars, popcorn maker you name it. We had wifi and TV. Horses in pasture in front of house. Goats in pen next door. The adult kids (20s) and my teen son went fishing in the pond nearby and took walks in woods. The house was huge and spread out so it fit this party of 7 and 2 dogs comfortably. We also invited 9 of our local relatives up for dinner and to enjoy the game room and there was so much for everyone to do that night. Again the house was so huge that even with our dinner guests there was plenty of seating and we never felt crammed in. I highly recommend this place. My 21 years old daughter said, This is the best place we have ever stayed mom."

Bison Escape does not disappoint!!!

Once again Cheryl, we had an awesome vacation. Enjoyed watching the deer and turkey in the neighboring field. Very comfortable, peaceful cabin to get away from it all, but close to Maggie Valley, Cherokee and Asheville. We also spent one day in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. I hope to see you again next year when we come back. Next year will mark 5 years we have been visiting!!!!!! That says it all. Thank you again -- Beth.

Great cabin with lots of amenities!

Very comfortable and secluded cabin. Lots of privacy; close to the main farm. We loved seeing the bison getting their breakfast oats. There were 2 horses pasturing in an area directly next to our driveway (not owned by Bison Farm), and we had a great time every day feeding them apples and carrots through the fence. They were our dear friends by the time we left!!! Loved the hot tub, the front veranda and luscious views into nearby meadows. Very relaxing...

Great family retreat

Excellent cabin! Great customer service! It was very quite and secluded but still reasonably close to asheville, maggie valley and Cherokee. We went to watch the Bission get feed, definitely a must! Cheryl even provided a small amount of firewood, perfect for an evening or two of Smores. The game room was great, the kids loved it. The hot tub was very relaxing, just make sure to check the temp as soon as you get there. It is cleaned and refilled after every stay so the temp is most likely adjusted down. The playground is neatly tucked away in the woods just down from the top of a hill. It is a good play area and the hike was not to bad. I'm pretty sure the OLDER KIDS (adults) enjoyed the scenery more. Will certainly be back.
