About the property


Welcome to the HIGH LIFE!

ABOUT THE UNIT - This condo has literally been renovated from top to bottom with high quality materials and attention to detail. It is tastefully decorated in earth-tones. Hardwood throughout - no carpet. ECO Smart hot water heater provides endless supply of hot water while being environmentally conscious. It is located on the first floor - a big plus since there are no elevators in this complex. Spectacular long range views.

A wide variety of entertainment is available on cable with all the premium channels. All TVs are big screen HD, Smart TV's with access to Netflix, so there are unlimited movies to suit every taste. High speed Wi-Fi is provided on the condo's own private network.

Living room has a 60 " smart TV, Bose Wave radio with aux jack, leather sofa, recliner and window seat. The wood-burning fireplace has a custom mantle with granite surround.

The kitchen has granite counters, new cabinets, stainless steel appliances, glass top range, french door refrigerator with ice-maker and dishwasher.

Master BR has a king size bed with Serta pillow top mattress and 50" smart TV. En-suite bathroom has jetted tub/shower combo.

Guest bedroom has a queen bed with Serta pillow top mattress and 48" smart TV. Guest bathroom has shower only.

ABOUT THE COMPLEX - There is an outdoor pool, indoor pool, hot tub, playground, grills and ample parking. It is located on high peak with some of the most spectacular views anywhere in the area. It is very common to see bears and lots of other wildlife. Many guests fall in love with the complex and return year after year. It is a conveniently located base to explore Gatlinburg (3.4 miles to downtown), Pigeon Forge (8.7 miles), The Great Smoky Mountains National Park (entrance 3.4 miles) and Ober Gatlinburg (1.7 miles).

THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY - Even if you don't choose to rent our unit, we want you to be able to make an informed decision that is right for your vacation preferences and budget. This complex was built in the eighties (as were the majority in the area). All units are individually owned so there is a big variety in quality and price. Some have been extensively renovated, some have been done on a very limited basis, and some not at all. Many have the original furniture, appliances, fixtures, carpet, and popcorn ceilings. The complex provides basic cable and Wi-Fi which is unreliable and weak at best. If this is important to you, make sure you rent a unit with private Wi-Fi network.

We hope you have a fabulous vacation in the Great Smoky Mountains!

About Linda Porter

A LITTLE ABOUT US - We have been fortunate enough to travel extensively, both internationally and in all 50 states. Although we have always had a love for Appalachia and the Great Smoky Mountains, we came to Gatlinburg with the sole purpose of buying an investment property. We chose this condo in particular because of the spectacular long range views and easy accessibility to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and the National Park. During the process we realized that we wanted more than an investment property in the area - we wanted to visit often and own a place we were proud to share with our family and friends. With that goal always in mind, we approached our renovation with patience, attention to detail and thoughtfulness. We tried to think of every detail to make this condo comfortable, modern, and beautiful.

Linda Porter purchased this condo in 2016

It’s a perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The High Life was beautifully decorated and thoughtfully equipped with anything we needed for our vacation. My husband and I took our kids (ages 5 and 7) on their first Gatlinburg vacation and the accommodations were exactly what we needed. The beds were comfortable, the WiFi was great, the view of the mountains was breathtaking, plus we saw bears and turkeys off the balcony, which the kids thought was super cool.

If you’re looking for a vacation rental, look no further. Linda was the perfect host and we wouldn’t hesitate to rent from her again!

Beautiful place to stay with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every moment of our stay. It was our first family vacation to the Smoky Mountains and we were so pleased we chose to stay here. The drive up the mountain was well worth the view at the top and we still felt close enough to downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Even our 4 and 7 year old enjoyed the stay. The chalet was adorable, clean, and perfect for a family of 4. Kids enjoyed the pools and we saw bears almost every day. We would definitely stay again next time we are in the area.

Nice, clean condo with beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time my husband, daughter and I vacationed in Gatlinburg. The condo was just the right size for us. The decor was nice and the condo was super clean which is a big deal for me. The view of the mountains off the balcony was beautiful.

Thank you Linda!

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

My family of 4 had a great time and the accommodations were very nice. The place is small but very nicely done. The beds were extremely comfortable and everything was clean. It is an older place which you can tell from the outside but the inside is modern. It is on a mountain and it is a bit of a drive but we didn't mind it. If you stay for a long time, be sure to bring extra that you would need for a long stay. Just the basics are in the condo. Overall, it was great for our family and would reccomend this place.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. You are right it is on top of the mountain. You can't get the views without it! Even though we couldn't do anything about the space being small, we put a lot of thought into maximizing the space: Replaced the large tradtional hotwater heater with a tankless, energy efficient, endless hot water heater;hanging pot-rack to maximize cabinet space; big flat screen TVs are all wall mounted to save space,etc. As is usual with rental condos/cabins (as opposed to hotels) we provide a generous "starter supply" of dishwasher soap, paper towels, toilet tissue etc . We mention this in the welcome information we send out. For many this is enough to last their entire stay. Some people have to supplement depending on usage. Again thanks for being our guest. Linda

Beautiful Mountain Top Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this condo. Condo is beautifully remodeled and feels luxurious. We had a scheduling conflict that Linda went above and beyond to take care of. If you’re looking for a luxurious condo, with amazing views from the top of a mountain (and don’t mind the drive up and down the mountain) this place is great.
