We have been to the area many times before and have stayed at Black Bear Ridge and The Preserve. Both of which were very far off of the parkway and did not have as much to offer. We have been staying at Bear Creek Crossing ever since. We stay at Pinnacle View and book it directly off of VRBO. WWW.vrbo.com/337552 (4 bedroom 4.5)This cabin is at the top of the resort and has the best views. It is also very private because there are only 4 cabins at the top with nobody behind you. The lady who we reserve through even gave us a discount when we asked for one. It was very clean and not only slept all 12 of us but had dinner seating for all of us too. It had a large private hot tub, grill, picnic table, swing, rocking chairs and a sauna on the deck. It was like you were on top of the mountains not in them. My husband and I love the master suite with whirlpool tub. The 3 fireplaces were electric but I understand why. It seems that there a lot of vacation cabins that are burned down. That's probably the reason. The kids loved that they had their own bathrooms off of their bedrooms and the rec. room. They didn't mind a rainy day because they played pool, air hockey, darts, and video games all day. I loved it because it was free. The only thing that I thought could have been better was the heating in the indoor pool. The water was chilly. The putt putt golf was fun. This is our favorite place by far. A tip... There is a back gate and if you go to the left around the park and around a cemetery you are on the parkway in 3 to 4 minutes.
