We rented our unit through the owner on VRBO - so our unity was top notch! Totally redone last year and updated. Loved that the unit had a fireplace, and the complex provides free firewood to use. The mountain road up to The Summit was a bit intimidating (we arrived at night), but once you got the way of it,... More

I have stayed at The Summit twice , once with some friends and we liked it so much we took our family back in June . The staff at the desk where very friendly and polite. We had a issue with our reservation being posted in the wrong month and it was fixed right away. The view was spectacular and... More

I would not recommend this place to anyone. We checked in late, the room wasn't very clean, Internet didn't work the entire stay. The men I assume are employees reeked of marijuana when we passed them and we're very vulgar loud and dirty looking. I assume that it was summit staff because of seeing them in the office. The manager... More

My husband, 2 Kids and I have stayed at the Summitt once before and stayed in an "OK" unit. We stayed in unit #8305 and was very pleasantly surprised. This was a studio with loft, and we LOVED it. It had a very mountainy feel, lots of bears on the walls and on the mantle. The beds were very comfortable... More

I never write a bad review but this place deserves one. It is on top of a mountain and is about 15 min from town on a very, very steep curvy road. The lobby person at check-in was not very pleasant. She acted like we disturbed her and it was a bother to give us our key. The room stunk... More

First let me say that my experience was with a TAN property . The complex it self and it's amenities are great . Beautiful views , nice pool area . The Jacuzzi is a comfort after a long day of hiking or shopping . Although it did smell like too much chlorine everyday. They had a very nice laundry facility... More

Where to start. First off i will give the only two positives about this facility. The view and the quiet outside of your room. Now for the rest. The night we arrived we checked in successfully and after walking into the room we noticed the fire extinguisher for the room, by the door, is completely empty, and had just been... More

My family and I went down to The Summit and spent a great family weekend on May 2nd and our absolute favorite thing about The Summit was the breathtaking views of the Smokies, it was beautiful! The ERA staff were very helpful and friendly and the condo was very comfy and had a homelike atmosphere! The only thing bad I... More

It was a beautiful place we love it . The view was excellent . It was hard to fine . The road was a bit dangerous but well worth the trip up once you got there. The staff was very friendly and helpful . The inside pool was small but hat to hot tubs, nice outside pool. We seen 3... More

Enjoyed our stay. Building 6 had great views. The staff was friendly and helpful. Even saw a couple of bears. The drive up the mountain isn't bad after a couple of times. Rooms were clean. Condo was fully furnished. They are not brand new but they are nice and cozy.
