LOCATION....LOCATION....LOCATION. Black Bear Lodge is located in the private community of Hornbuckle/Cranberry Falls between the town of Maggie Valley and the town of Cherokee. The several miles of private roads in this mountainous community are ideal for riders of ATVs. The entire area is surrounded by beautiful mountains, lakes, waterfalls, wildlife, hiking trails, white water rafting opportunities, golf courses, and gorgeous scenery -- just to mention a few.
Black Bear Lodge is only one (1) mile from the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway, which has been dubbed 'America's Favorite Drive.' The Haywood County span, with its extraordinarily high elevations, offers motorists breathtaking views of seemingly endless mountain ridges and picturesque valleys, as well as hiking trails. Don't be surprised to see bears, elk, and other wildlife as you drive on the Parkway.
Great Smoky Mountain National Park entrance is just a short drive from Black Bear Lodge. A beautiful drive through the park will end in popular Gatlinburg, TN.
Maggie Valley (www.maggievalley.org) boasts a rich mountain history and has everything you need, including unique shops and restaurants, parks, golf courses, Cataloochee with skiing and horseback riding, Ghost Town, festival grounds, dancing, mini-golf, and elk viewing.....just to mention a few.
Cherokee is just 15 minutes away, with fine restaurants, museums, Indian reservation, and many sources of entertainment, including the well known Harrah's Cherokee Casino.
Downtown Waynesville (east of Maggie Valley and a short drive from Black Bear Lodge) is a vibrant town with fine shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants, tree-lined brick sidewalks, and many popular events.
Asheville is a little further east of Waynesville and has the closest airport.
The Biltmore (an 8,000 acre estate in Asheville with beautiful gardens and very nice restaurants) is very popular.
This brand new 'hideaway' provides rental guests the opportunity for a wonderful vacation in this very special and unique area of western North Carolina.
