Many of mornings I felt we were above the clouds, weird feeling to feel like rain is below you. Quiet and the resort had everything I wanted pool, hot tub, fireplace, roomy rooms - I don't think exercise room, but you get that by just walking up the road to the next resort which is the highest at least this...

Visiting Smokies with our extended family, this was the best way to go. There were 8 of us. My husband, I, and our 3 kids, ages 10, 7, and 4, were vacationing with our framily, ages 60, 61, and 14. We got a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with a loft. There was a king, queen, and double bed, plus... More

The condo was very nice. View was amazing. We watched the fireworks from Dollywood every night at 930 from our balcony. The only bad things I can say is the internet didn't work in our condo and the tv in one bedroom was not clear. And it's very very high up the mountain. I wouldn't stay there during the winter...

When you rent a condo at the Summit understand they are individually owned by someone who probably never visits their condo.(theymay have bought it as an investment and don't do any updates)The front desk staff will let you view several units prior to selecting one if they are not totally booked. The roads are windy because you are going up... More

For the money this was a very good deal for a 3 night stay in the Gatlinburg area. It was like a small 2 bedroom apartment plus a loft area. The kitchenette area was very small but served it's purpose. These aren't the cleanest but sufficed. They aren't "new" but way cheaper than staying in a hotel. What we paid... More

We stayed in TAN room 3304 - 2 bedrooms with double beds and a loft with two twins, sleeps 8. My first concern was the lack of security - no TAN staff on site and we had a code to enter the room. Is it ever changed?? The stove was very tiny, same with the dishwasher. Iron was broken along... More

We have stayed here several times in the past two years. Building 2 and 3 do not have mountain views but all the others offer breathtaking views of the mountains. The staff is very helpful and the indoor and outdoor pools are super clean. You can't judge all units by what one or two say. Most condos rentals here are... More

Rented unit 4307 from Expedia. It is located about 3 miles up a mountain with hair pin turns, no guard rails and far away from the tourist areas. Once you leave, you will stay away for the day.When entering the front door we were met with dingy, stained rugs in hallway and stairs. Up 3 flights with no elevator. The... More

We were in building 8, room 8208. It has a beautiful view. We had great weather, and spent a lot of time in the pool, which is very nice. We also used the hot tubs, they were great, but the building needs some upgrading, but still nice. The grounds were very well kept. Our room was VERY clean. Had all... More

Recently spent a weekend in one of the studio w/loft condos . The place was really nice . Beds were really comfortable . Our only real complaint is the housekeeping . It appeared that they don't dust often , really messed with my cousin's allergies . I'll definitely be going back !!!
