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.
