The sunshine and warm weather is on it’s way and if you’re anything like me, you’re counting down the days for Spring to finally begin again! With this new season usually comes a break of some sort, so is it time to come and see us again in Pigeon Forge? Our town has become a vacation destination for so many families from all over the world and it’s for good reason. We have something exciting waiting for you at every corner, so no one vacation is ever the same! Two thirds of the country can actually be here within a day, making it one of the most visited areas around. In 2017, we had another record breaking year, welcoming over 11 million visitors to our park. We are so grateful that everyone keeps coming back to see us year after year, you guys are what makes this town truly come alive. The most important thing we look for when planning a vacation is a clean, comfortable, and affordable place to stay. Let’s take a look at Why You Should Stay at Bear Crossing!

It’s time for another family vacation and we know that one thing everyone wants is to have their own space. When you stay with us here at Bear Crossing, we offer two and three bedroom affordable luxury condos that each have a private balcony overlooking the serene Little Pigeon River. Imagine kicking up your feet and sipping a cup of coffee as the sound of the water flowing by fills the air around you, it doesn’t get much more relaxing than that. Each unit comes complete with a fully equipped kitchen, king sized beds and flat screen tv’s in every room, washer/dryer, and a spacious living and dining area. What we truly love about each one of our units is that they really give you that feeling of home even though you’re away on vacation. All of our condos are individually owned and tastefully decorated a little different than the other, so make sure to take a peek online and see which one fits your own specific taste!

Our property also offers quite a few amenities for you all to enjoy while you’re here. Since the warmer months are coming, we’ll be able to reopen the outdoor pool. Splash around in the water with your loved ones or grab a lounge chair and soak up some sun! While the kids are having fun in the pool, you can enjoy a good book and some sunshine since we’ve been missing it so much. Sometimes all we want to do while we’re on vacation is just relax and not have to go anywhere. One special and unique thing about staying at this particular property is that you can actually swim or even go tubing in the river behind your condo! Nothing beats getting to spend a free day out on the water. You can also fish out there, all you need is a Tennessee Fishing License which you can pick up at the Walmart nearby. There are also grills located on site so you can fire up some steaks and have a delicious meal in the comfort of your own unit!

When you ask our new and even repeat guests what they like the most about this property, we can guarantee that you will hear one simple word – location! Conveniently located at traffic light #5 in Pigeon Forge, our property is truly right smack dab in the middle of all the action! Don’t feel like packing up the car and driving everywhere? No problem at all, there are plenty of attractions that are in walking distance of your condo. You can be at our favorite one stop shop – The Island – in minutes by just strolling down the Riverwalk! Want to visit Patriot Park and Old Mill Square? You’ll be there in no time and you don’t even have to worry about parking. Want to go to the Comedy Barn and laugh until you cry? Take advantage of a free ticket here which we’ll tell you all about shortly! Don’t feel like cooking a meal? The Alamo Steakhouse is just across the street, some of the best steaks around are calling your name. Are you attending an event at the Leconte Center? Sleep in a bit because you can be there within seconds. Are your kids playing in a baseball tournament? Cal Ripken is right across the way (yes!) You truly cannot beat this prime location and we’re sure that we will become your new favorite place to stay when you come to town!

Another perk of Vacationing Better with us is that we offer a FREE TICKETS program for you to take advantage of while you’re here! This will get you a free adult ticket each day of your stay to numerous shows and attractions in town, saving you $275 a day. Some of the places on the list include the Ripley’s Aquarium, Comedy Barn, Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show, Smoky Mountain Opry, and they’ve just recently added a free dinner and drink at Mama’s Farmhouse! If you’ve never been to this restaurant before, we truly recommend it. It’s served family style and you will fall in love with the fried chicken and biscuits here, we promise, they’re delicious! We also sell discounted tickets at the front desk for Dollywood, Wonderworks, Alcatraz East, Titanic, and the Ripley’s attractions, so we’ll save you a line and a few dollars. It’s going to be an extremely big year at Dollywood, they’re even calling it the “Season of Showstoppers” so we’re anxiously waiting for the doors to open again on March 17th! They’ll be debuting the new Festival of Nations and we can’t wait for it. Don’t forget that you can be to Dollywood in minutes and you don’t even have to touch the parkway since we’re located near Teaster Lane.  You also could just skip on over to Patriot Park and climb aboard the Trolley to take you there, it’s only 50 cents a person and they’ll drop you off right at the front door!
