About

Over a Century of History

For over a century, Buck Hill Falls has been a destination for families seeking to meet and reconnect to create memories. The founders envisioned a summer retreat from nearby cities. Early planning created a serene haven over 4500+ acres of streamside glens, roaring waterfalls, ancient woods, and shaded paths. Despite Buck Hill Falls history of housing an extravagant 400+ room inn filled with world-travelers and famous visitors, the community remains a well-planned paradise, a well-kept secret.

Buck Hillers highly-value an active lifestyle and spend time participating in sports and social/cultural activities at Buck Hill Falls. The community enjoys a myriad of options: Donald Ross-designed golf courses at the Buck Hill Golf Club, ten Har-Tru tennis courts at the Tennis Complex, an Olympic-sized outdoor swimming pool, two spectacular lawn bowling greens, 40+ miles of pristine hiking and biking trails, and over a dozen other four-season, recreational offerings.

Buck Hill is a community that reaches out and pulls together and community members hand down that passion for giving to each new generation.
