The Highlands Condominium
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 6, 2013

I've stayed at The Highlands Condominium three times now, in the exact same Unit #506. It offers breathtaking views of downtown Gatlinburg and the mountains. The condo is centrally located and the unit is beautifully decorated. If I needed any extra's whether towels or garbage bags all I had to do was call the front desk and they immediately responded. The drive up the mountain was quite scary with narrow roads and no guard rails, but I quickly learned of the back entrance via the Gatlinburg By-Pass. The pool area was lovely offering beautiful vista's but be prepared to walk up alot of stairs to access it if you're staying in the townhouses. What I love about The Highlands is that it offers the best of both worlds, you get to experience the hectic pace of town and the peaceful serenity of the mountains. I can see myself coming back for years to come.

Everything about this place was great! We had a 2 bedroom and it was plenty enough room for the two families on the trip. Super clean and well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. We had breakfast and mimosas every morning on the balcony..the view was breathtaking!! Housekeeping replaced our towels every morning which was a plus!! I have already recommended The Highlands to some friends who are planning a trip in August!!

Highlands

My husband & I stayed in a two story condo for a week- unit 506. The first thing we noticed was the spectacular view of the mountains & downtown Gatlinburg. The balcony had a table & 4 chairs. It was mostly quiet, but we could hear traffic from downtown at times.

The condo was nicely decorated & clean, but not immaculate. The kitchen had a fair amount of cookware, etc, but there was only one oven mit & no pot holders. If you're planning on cooking daily, bring extra detergent for sink/dishwasher & trash bags. There wasn't a washer/dryer in this condo so we used the coin operated one in the building across the street to wash personal items. It was pretty dirty & needed some attention. On the bright side, we put dirty towels in a basket outside the door daily & they swapped them out for fresh ones. I don't think the other buildings have this privilege because they have a washer/dryer.

The master bedroom/ bathroom were lovely. The king sized bed was very comfortable & the hot tub was a treat after a long day of hiking. Really enjoyed the walk in shower also. It was quiet inside. A couple times we heard our neighbors goin up/ down the stairs in their condo.

The wifi isn't the best, but it'll do. It works better outside on the balcony.

Overall, we really liked staying there. It was comfortable & convenient. The positives definately outweigh the negatives.

We have stayed at the Highlands for 25+ years. The location is great allowing a route through Gatlingburg and also there is a by-pass to Pigeon Force as well as thru the National park and on to Cherokee. We have used a one-bedroom condo when traveling as a couple, 2 and 3 bedroom condos when traveling with friends and numerous times traveled with our sons and their families for a Thanksgiving week occupying 4 three bedroom condos. The view is great, rooms are maintained, and the staff is knowledgable and very friendly. Needless to say this is one of our favorite locations.

Thoroughly enjoyed our week here. Condo was spacious, clean and location was convenient yet away from major traffic routes so it was quiet and relaxing. The staff was friendly and helpful. Nothing said here can fully describe the view we had from our balcony. It was magnificent. We would definitely stay here again. Loved it.

Loved the location of the complex and spaciousness of our 2 bedroom condo. We were two couples sharing the unit and had lots of space. The amenities were great. While the unit could use a deep cleaning, over all it was clean. I am very fussy.  Would definitely come back.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the third floor for the best view. We had a room by the pool which was convenient...
