It has been a while since we stayed at the summit. Our apartment was very nice, very homelike. You felt like you lived there. Our kids loved it, plan on the Grand kids going maybe next year but at least one trip by ourselves. Kitchen was nicely stocked with just the right amount of utensils. However we cannot speak for...

First of all, it's important to note that these condos are individually owned so obviously reviews will vary depending on which unit/owner you book. Our experience was wonderful. I read reviews for many of these units on the VRBO website, and found one with consistently high ratings. We got a fantastic price for a week (through VRBO) and were so... More

We were in 8102 on the 1st floor. The condo was nice and clean. The water heater is small, so take short showers. Everything else was fine. The views are awesome. Good price for a place to relax at night. That is the only time we were there. The ride up is steep!

We really liked the set up of the unit, obviously recently updated perhaps to water damage? I say this as there are two pictures hanging on the wall that have water damage and are moldy. Wifi here is very spotty, something that should be addressed when booking, I booked through Plan with a Tan. Nice indoor pool, friendly staff at... More

We stayed in a two bedroom condo during fall break. There were 6 of us and there was plenty of room. We stayed in building 8 and the view was breathtaking!! The condo was county decor, clean and the beds were comfy. It was quiet and peaceful. The outside pool was closed but there was an indoor heated pool, which... More

On the upside Summit of Gatlinburg is clean basic accomodations with good view of Ober Gatlinburg ski slope. On the downside if you are directionally challenged expect to get disoriented repeatedly as you come and go.GPS gets confused and therefore of little help. Management on site isn't congenial or of much help stating our unit was is not under their... More

We stayed with friends in building 8 on the third floor. The views are spectacular, you can see the mountains and downtown Gatlinburg. The condo we stayed in was very clean and updated. It was a 3 bedroom condo and had a cute little semi private loft as one of the bedrooms. The location is excellent, it is convenient to... More

Had a nice stay the week after thanksgiving, but there was a few things I wish I was notified about before going. 1) there was no chain lock on the door to our condo. 2) online said there was a sauna, but when we got there they said they closed it at the beginning of 2014. 3) the shower walls...

Our family stayed in a loft bedroom condo with amazing views of the mountains. There's something special about staying so high above everything for a few days and yet it's a short drive down the mountain to Gatlinburg & the National Park. Made use of the pool and staff was friendly and helpful. Property is a little outdated but clean... More
