About Cheryl Hillis

My brothers & my husband had shared a vision of expanding my fathers buffalo ranch when additional property became available to purchase. With all our knowledge & experiences combine we have built 3 log homes & have been renting them out since 2004. All the furniture in this cabin has been handmade by the wood on the property! Even the covered wagon bed, that was custom built my my father. Once my husband retires from the US Army in about 8 yrs our dream will be to build our log cabin on the property & be more hands on. God has blessed us beyond our wildest dreams. We hope you love the mountains like we have all come to love being transplants from a very flat NY!

Cheryl Hillis purchased this cabin in 2007

What makes this cabin unique

While staying at Bison Overlook Lodge we feel you will really enjoy the peace & tranquility of being secluded on 65 acres. So many of our previous guest have wrote back & told us they had all these plans to sight see but then just loved hanging out in the cabin together enjoying the game room & the children all love the uniquely designed playground as well as seeing the miniature horse, buffalo, goats & llamas!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband, 2 daughters (10 & 6), mother, aunt & myself stayed at Bison Overlook Lodge in April. We had not seen my aunt in 4 years & this was a wonderful place to catch up & make memories. My kids were so excited to see all the animals, buffalo, goats, horses, mini horses, bunnies & more. They also loved the playground. The cabin was beautiful & a great place to relax after our days out. The area were the cabin is located is lovely & it is easy to get to highways for our sightseeing & white water rafting trips. We would love to stay here again.

Greatest vacation at Bison Overlook Lodge

  • 5 of 5

I just can say that a week was not enough for my family. This place is so amazing that we didn't want to leave. My kids loved the cabin, specially the playroom. We live in Miami and that was the first time for my children in a place where nature is everything. I really recommend it if you want to get away from the noise and stress. Buffalo Creek Vacation is just a few miles from Asheville. The cabin was equipped with Cable TV and WiFi Internet. If you really want to disconnect, all you have to do is turn the devices off.

Great Family Getaway

Our time at Bison Overlook was Awesome!!! The views were amazing, kitchen stocked well, game room was great. The cabin is in between Maggie Valley and Asheville, which was perfect for everything we had planned. We had animals visit us in the back yard while hanging around the firepit and enjoying the amazing weather. Would definately recommend this place for an great getaway!

Our family vacation at Bison Overlook was AWESOME!!! The cabin was beautiful and fit our family nicely. We enjoyed everything about the location especially the great surprise of the animals. We had our little grandson with us and he fell in love with the animals. We most definitely will stay here again if given the chance. I highly recommend Bison Overlook to everyone. Cheryl was such a great person to deal with and helped with any needs we had. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to experience such a wonderful vacation area!!

Amazing Views and Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Bison Overlook Lodge! We were there to attend our Daughter's wedding up the road 3 miles from our location. Steve, who was there on site was Fantastic, and was there to help with anything we needed. This Cabin was great for our getaway! Definitely would be staying at the property again. The kids loved the Llama's, Miniature Horses, Goats, Rabbits, and the Bison. Such an nice place to get away and relax! Thank you Cheryl and Family for sharing this property with us. We look forward to upcoming getaways with Buffalo Creek Vacations!!

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Bison Overlook Lodge. The cabin was wonderful and the kids really enjoyed the "private" kids playground, the game room in the basement and all the animals on the ranch. We loved taking advantage of the Kids Ski Free program during the week at Cataloochee Ski Resort as well. Cheryl was easy to work with and answered all of our questions very promptly. The adults loved the hot tub. A very nice place to unwind and relax - we would highly recommend a stay here!

Overall Great Experience

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was a great size for 4 adults and 4 young children. We were all able to play outside, feed the animals, and hike the property. I enjoyed the scenic views and quiet atmosphere being away from town a bit. Overall a great experience and I would definitely go back.
