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 Property is a little outdated but clean...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

We went to the Summit In November for our 10 year anniversary trip. It was a very nice, clean place. The rooms are managed by individual owners, so I'm sure that is why there are some review that say they need updated. Ours was nice & updated. The view was spectacular! We stayed in building 8 on the 3rd floor.... More

My wife and I gave this condo a chance b/c of the price and picturesque views. The views were exactly what were in the pictures and they did not disappoint, in fact they exceeded our expectations. The condo and its little touches left a lot to be desired. The condo is super small, which we expected for the price we... More

Staff were friendly and helpful but there is no cell or wi-fi service to speak of, meaning its there and then its gone, but that's a problem for the area, so expected to be cut out from the world while staying here. When in Gatlinburg and Pidgeon Forge cell and wi-fi is great. Office does not have a computer to... More

We rented a 3BR condo from VRBO for a long weekend, forgoing the place we normally stay because it was priced very nicely. The pictures were nice- showed a very sensible place, nothing fancy but nice enough for us, so we took the chance, mainly because we were so pleasantly surprised by the VRBO we had at the beach earlier...
