Welcome to 'Dancing Bear Getaway.' Come and enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the gorgeous Smoky Mountains from this beautifully appointed 2-bedroom plus loft condo at The Summit. Watch the mist come up over the mountains from one of your TWO balconies. This top floor unit offers a view of downtown Gatlinburg, the ski slopes at nearby Ober Gatlinburg, and the great Smoky Mountains including Mount LeConte, the tallest mountain in the eastern United States.
Our condominium has all the comforts of home so you can just relax and enjoy. The condo is a corner unit that gives more light, windows and more views, and is kept very clean, smoke free and pet free.
Our family just purchased this condo in 2009, and it is immaculate. It was previously used just as an owners retreat and looks brand new. Our condo has a great loft with two twin beds as an extra bonus. Kids will love to hang out in the loft and play.
Our kids say it's their own private 'tree house'. The loft even has a sky light so the kids can watch the stars come out while lying in bed.
Both the master bedroom and the 2nd bedroom have queen-size beds, and there are two twin beds in the loft. With the additional sofa bed your home can sleep 8 people comfortably. Plenty of room for all to have a most peaceful vacation.
Every room has a ceiling fan and the 20 foot tall vaulted ceiling in the family room gives your home a spacious alpine feel. Open both balcony doors, and let the cool mountain breeze (nature's air conditioning) fill your unit with fresh air. Also, being on the top floor, you will not be disturbed by anyone beneath your unit. Bring your laptop, because we now offer WiFi free of charge.
According to an article in 2009 in USA Today, The Great Smoky Mountain National Park is as rich and beautiful as it is free. With 800 miles of hiking and horseback riding trails, you will leave all your worries behind, and it doesn't cost a penny! Don't forget to take the family to Ober Gatlinburg, and cool off at the water park, or try your hand at ice skating (Yes ice skating). FUN for everyone of all ages!
In downtown Gatlinburg, there is so much to do - from shopping, mini golf, the Aquarium, and of course, Ripley's Believe It Not. Not to mention all the incredible restaurants, and Dollywood in Pigeon Forge just down the road from Gatlinburg. Whether you curl up by the wood burning fireplace and enjoy a good book, take in the sites in town, or just simply enjoy the best view of the mountains, you will want to come back to Dancing Bear time and time again.
Thank you for visiting our website and we hope you choose Dancing Bear Getaway for your next vacation getaway.

ReviewsWrite a review
Your mountain retreat was an excellent vacation spot for our family. The 2 bedrooms and the loft was a great fit for us. Whenever we were in the condo, the kids were playing in their loft. The place was the perfect blend of both a condo and a cabin. It's the size of a cabin, but with all the amenities of a first rate resort. (The indoor pool was fantastic.) Also, the pictures on the site don't do the views justice. They are simply incredible! Can't wait to come back.

Owner response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Dancing Bear. Our family takes great pride in our vacation home, and we love sharing it with others. We spent over one year looking at vacation properties, until we found just the right one. It is very satisfying to know that our guests feel this passionately about our place, and our goal is to make them truly feel at home when they are on vacation.

Lots of fun and SPECTACULAR VIEWS
Your home was really nice, and the kids and I enjoyed the games and DVD’s you provided. Also, having treats for us was a thoughtful touch. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the views were certainly spectacular. I will definitely tell more people about the great time we had at Dancing Bear, and cannot wait to stay there again.

Perfect VacationGuest comment entered by owner
We went to Clingmans Dome. We were higher than the clouds. Also, the Dixie Stampede was really fun. We had a great time. Everything was wonderful. You have a beautiful home – with everything we needed. It felt like home. Thanks for a great vacation!

Had a wonderful time visiting Gatlinburg. The condo was clean with extra bedding and everything you need including a hair dryer. The loft was awesome for my 8 year old. Indoor pool was a big hit as well. Personally I liked the hot tub steps from the pool so I could watch the kids while enjoying something for myself. Views from the balcony were amazing. Would stay again with this owner

Owner response: Thanks for the nice review. We look forward to hosting your family again.
Homeaway helped my family find the perfect place on top of the mountains in TN it was a nice clean condo and a beautiful view. I will be using homeaway again in May for my girls trip to Florida to a condo on the beach. Thank you Homeaway and the owner of dancing Bear ( I'm not sure if he would like for me to say his name) Thank you all for a wonderful trip for me and my family.

Winter Fun And Incredible Views
Had a great time! Went to the indoor pool every day and had a fire every night. Tried the free moonshine in town – A must do! The view from the condo was spectacular during both the day and night. The kids loved snow tubing. We did it two days in a row. It also snowed when we were here - a real treat for the kids and us. The owners are very nice. They thought of everything including letting us know about the road closure in the Park which saved us a lot of time driving there. Hope to come again.

AWESOME vacation experience at Gatlingburg and the Sumitt Apartments
AWESOME vacation experience at Gatlingburg and the Sumitt Apartments
The apartment was excellent. One of the best units with an amazing view of Gatlingburg and Ober. The first night it snowed and we got caught in downtown Gatlingburg and could not get to the apartment on the first night. :0( So if it snows on your stay, do not go anywhere and stay in the apartment, enjoying the snow and the apartment. Next morning we went up to the apartment and enjoyed for the first time 8" of snow. The kids were delighted and we had tons of fun. We made several snow mans and angels. We had a blast. The apartment was super clean with plenty of amenities and space. We highly recommend the unit and will definitely return and rent this unit again. The aquarium was nice and The Alamo restaurant was one of the best dining experiences we had. AWESOME stakes and buy one get one free lunch. Can't beat that. Don't leave without dining at The Alamo.

Mountain Condo - The Place To Vacation
Very beautiful place to stay! We had breakfast at Flapjacks for 2 of the 3 days we were here. Took a hike to Laurel Falls – a pretty easy hike for the children. The kids had so much fun in the loft, and actually looked forward to going to sleep at night up there. Your condo is so welcoming we felt right at home. We enjoyed the amazing view, and will definitely be returning for another stay soon!

Dancing Bear - Great Views!
When we arrived, we were really pleased with the beautiful comfy home and gorgeous views. We had a picnic at Clingmans Dome (thanks for the tip). During breakfast on the balcony one day, we saw a mama bear and her 3 cubs. The kids were so excited! There were 6 of us, and we still had so much room here. Thank you for letting us use your home for a great vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Gatlinburg Summit Condos:
After seeing pictures of the Smoky Mountains, I wanted to take my family there to take in all the splendor of the area, and it truly is a magical place to visit. The mountains are one of the most breathtaking I have ever seen, and they really are smoky! The greatest feature for staying in our resort is the unmatched views. Another benefit is that it is only 3 miles from the town of Gatlinburg, with all the kids attractions, shopping, and restaurants, and just 10 minutes to the main entrance of the Smoky Mountain National Park. Also, it is only 5 minutes to Ober Gatlinburg for great skiing, ice-skating, or water park fun. In addition, our complex is the only one on the mountain that offers both an indoor pool with jacuzzis, and an outdoor pool.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The biggest attraction for staying in our unit is the most spectacular views of the mountains. Our home is the perfect blend of both a condo and a cabin. The 20-foot tall vaulted ceiling gives it a real mountain feeling. The two balconies, with a complete wrap around view, are really wonderful. Children love the kids loft and really enjoy having their own space to hang out in and play. However, the biggest reason for staying in our unit always comes back to the amazing views of the beautiful Smoky Mountains that must be seen to be believed! Absolutely amazing!
