Whether you are looking for an exciting family vacation, a romantic getaway, or a perfect gathering place for a large group, Buffalo Creek Vacations has something for everyone. The accommodations are stellar, but the setting is what draws people from across the country to this bucolic destination.
Located in Clyde, NC, Buffalo Creek Vacations comprises a 72-acre ranch with buffalo, goats, llamas, and some serious reconnecting with animals and nature. Every Monday through Saturday, guests are invited to the Bison Viewing Platform for the morning feeding. For many, these animals remind us of the vast, open plains of the Midwest, but here you can see these majestic animals up close and personal.
Next, feed the goats, visit the llamas, and join Dennis the Donkey Whisperer inside the donkey enclosure to feed, pet, and brush the mini donkeys. Kids (65 pounds or less) can also ride on the ranch’s mini horses after they are fed at about 10:45 am!
Families with younger children will also enjoy spending time at the Buffalo Creek (BC) Corral Playground. This is not your ordinary neighborhood park. With a rock wall, zip line, monkey bars, slide, and a horseshoe pit, your kids will expend a lot of energy making sure they don’t miss a thing.
The entire family also will be engaged with the onsite BC Depot Agapeland Station model train layout. In partnership with Smoky Mountain Model Railroaders, this 30 x 50 model train exhibition mimics the Great Smoky Mountains’ lush forests, mountains, streams, and farmland. They even include a miniature Buffalo Creek Vacations display.
As for where to stay on the ranch, choose from a large selection of cabins. The Orange Caboose and Gray Caboose offer accommodations the family will talk about for years to come. Each authentic train car sleeps 5, with a queen-sized bed for the adults below and a full-sized bed in the cupola with huge windows to view the grazing bison from bed!
Buffalo Creek Vacations also has the perfect hideaway for the romantic interlude. The Buffalo Bungalow is a one-bedroom, custom log home with a sauna, walk-in shower for two, deck with a hot tub, and king-size bed with a romantic canopy.
Large groups will find Buffalo Creek Vacations to be the perfect destination for family reunions, weddings, and other large get-togethers. The Tatonka Lodge is a 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom, luxury log home that sleeps 14. There are 2 master suites with jacuzzi baths. Another bedroom offers a queen-sized bed and another room is designed to delight the children. Your kids will dream of wild-west adventures sleeping in a replica of an actual covered wagon!
There are 8 cabins and 2 cabooses to choose from, and all luxury cabins have their own pool table, hot tub, Wi-Fi, and private fire ring. Buffalo Creek Vacations also offers some incredible deals, including a fourth-night free with a three-night stay during certain weeks.
