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 4 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,(in Tatonka Lodge) that was custom built my my father. Once my husband retires from the US Army in about 6 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 2012

What makes this cabin unique

While staying at Buffalo Creek 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 & seeing the miniature horse, buffalo, goats & llamas!

Wonderful cabin in the Mountains!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very well maintained and clean, and thoughtfully supplied with towels, kitchen ware, and enough firewood for (at least) two fires. My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay. The owner's suggestion for 4-wheel-drive in the winter was, we found, well advised even though we didn't experience true "winter weather." Gravel roads or drives tend to heave and get pot holes in winter faster than they can be filled so the extra clearance combined with better traction is good (plus it helped us avoid spinning out and making things worse!) The view was great!

Romantic getaway - so quiet and relaxing. This was exactly what we needed to recharge & reconnect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent our 10 year anniversary at the cabin. It was perfect! The cabin is excellently decorated, very romantic. Not too far from Asheville for good food and drinks. The animals are so cute! We had a wonderful time.

Nothing like it!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cabin! So clean, and looks just like the pictures, if not better. My husband and I rent a cabin every year for his birthday and so far this has been one of the best! We really appreciated all of the small romantic touches. The property was so beautiful and well taken care of. We were able to take our dogs on small hikes, and enjoyed seeing all of the animals (I’ve never seen so many Bison up close by the way, amazing). We also took full advantage of all the amenities that were available to us. It’s not often that you find a rental with a full-size hot tub, massage table, and even a sauna. You can tell the owners have been doing this for a while because they have literally thought of everything you could possibly need to have a relaxing and comfortable stay. It was the perfect weekend getaway for us. Cheryl and her family are also easily available and so quick to respond to anything you need. We would definitely come again. Thank you so much for sharing your property with us!

thanksgiving at the Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

This was the second Thanksgiving we stayed at Buffalo Bungalo. We came back the second year because we loved it so much the first year. The little touches such as a welcome sign a little welcome flag for celebrations and the treats for the Smore's were absolutely perfect. But our absolute favorite has to be the hot tub. To sit out early mornings or early evening's and either watch the sunset sunrise was so awesome. This truly is the perfect retreat for couples.

The fact we also get to bring our little puppy with us is an added bonus. I appreciate a place that lets we bring her.

The cabin has a 360 wrap around porch which is perfect for what ever view you desire based on the suns position. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking (we did bring our own roaster for the turkey we cooked though). And instructions for checkout were clear.

I highly recommend this retreat. We have stayed at many VRBO properties and this one is my favorite so far.
