We loved it and the staff was so friendly. We was on the top floor in building 5. The drive is a lot of twists and turns but we'll worth it when you arrive. We seen the momma and baby bear the last day there. Please make sure you put your trash where it is supposed to go they do... More

Very nice place to staff. Really peaceful setting. The staff was very friendly. The view was excellent. Our condo unit was clean and comfortable, except for the bed in the master bedroom, it was the most uncomfortable bed that I have ever slept in. Other than the bed, our stay was excellent. The drive up to the condo is challenging,... More

First let me say if you are worried you won't be up in the mountains enough, stop. It is a winding drive up into the mountains. Seriously as you are driving up, you think... how far up am I going?? Don't get me wrong, it is only approximately 4 miles from downtown area of Gatlinburg. You arrive at the Summit... More

It was easy to get to once we figured out how to get up the mountain. A word of advice get anything you need before you go up. It's not bad to come back down but it wasn't my favorite thing to do especially at night. The rental we had was owned by a private owner. It was nice and... More

The accommodations were quite cozy and the view was awesome. The outside pool was small but nice. Two inside hot tubs were very nice. The staff as very friendly. Be prepared for the winding, narrow and very steep mountain roads. We had a great time and look forward to going there again.

We then went on to go to our room (originally a loft) We came in to a ordor and terrible furnishings. I preceded to the loft... More

IF you are looking for a place with good WIFI for the days that you can't get out,this is not the place. The WIFI only worked very sparingly if that. We called the office and they did nothing to fix the problem.

This was my lucky third visit and I checked in to a new (arguably improved) view Mt. LeConte side - wow. The second floor unit this time was a smaller, studio, and it was still sufficient for 3 adults offering a wonderful window bed (a little short for some of you longer folks) and an uncomfortable pull out sofa. Love... More

The Summit was very clean . Great value we stayed in 1308 . We all loved the condo the outdoor pool was nice and clean indoor pool was very nice. My only complaint would be the drive up to the condo. It's an easy drive just to far out of town . Make sure you come prepared not convenient to... More
