I absolutely loved staying at the Parkside resort! We stayed in Cloud Nine for the first 2 days and at the Grand View for 10 days. They were both gorgeous cabins. We were close to the strip (2.5 miles or about 5 minutes), but still felt secluded like we were in the wilderness and really enjoyed the peace and quiet. We hiked the trails every morning and they were great – the view at the top of the hill behind the pool is awesome! We took the kids down to the park a couple times and they really loved the kids’ ziplining. I loved the pool – the waterslide was fantastic, even the adults had so much fun on it! The dive-in movies were great! This was a perfect place for a nice relaxing vacation in the smoky mountains and I will definitely be back!
