Location, location, location: In that regard, Grand View is tough to beat. Part of the Summit of Gatlinburg condo complex, it’s just minutes from all the local must-see attractions. But that’s not the only thing this 2-bedroom condo has going for it. Recently remodeled, it features a private balcony, a fireplace, and free WiFi among its amenities. What’s more, when you stay here you have free access to the complex’s 2 swimming pools: one outdoors for use in the summer and one indoors for year-round enjoyment. Please note, there is a 2-night minimum stay.
On the 3rd floor of a nonelevator building, unit 6303 was redecorated with both comfort and elegance in mind. With its high ceilings and casually chic furnishings, the living area is a wonderful space for relaxing with family and friends. Kick back on the generously padded recliner sofa and watch a movie on the flat-panel TV with cable or nestle in the sumptuous armchair with a stack of magazines. Glass doors open onto the private balcony, a great spot for enjoying your morning coffee or after-dinner drink. If you’d like some quiet time, stretch out on the cushioned window seat.
As many as 6 people can get comfortable at the dining table. Sure, there are plenty of restaurants nearby, offering everything from steak to seafood, Italian to Cuban, barbecue to fondue. But especially after a day of hiking, fishing, or horseback riding, it can be more relaxing to eat in. The condo’s kitchen is packed with stainless-steel appliances, gadgets, cookware, and tableware so that you can whip up a meal in no time. There’s also a dishwasher, so that cleanup is a breeze as well.
Grand View has 2 bedrooms, decorated in restful palettes to encourage a peaceful night’s sleep. Each room has a queen-size bed, a flat-screen TV, a ceiling fan, and plenty of storage. The condo has 2 full bathrooms as well. With a bathroom for each bedroom, mornings will be hassle-free. This setup makes the condo as well suited for 2 couples vacationing together as it is for a family.
There’s room for one more overnight guest upstairs, in the loft’s media room. In addition to a large flat-screen TV with Blu-ray player, this room has a futon that opens into a bed for one. Its position beneath the skylight enables whoever’s bunking here to gaze up at the star-studded night sky before drifting off to sleep.
As serene and lovely as Grand View is, you don’t visit the Smoky Mountains to spend your time in a condo. The Summit at Gatlinburg’s prime location makes it easy to take full of everything the area has to offer. For instance, Ober Gatlinburg Ski Area and Amusement Park is only a few miles away, as is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, where you can hike, bike, fish, or go horseback riding. On the other hand, if shopping is your idea of exercise, you’ll love the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop, an 8-mile trail of more than 100 galleries, studios, and craft shops featuring everything from stained glass to chainsaw art. Also, just a short drive away in Pigeon Forge, Tanger Outlet Mall offers bargains galore in more than 175 stores.
All this and more is just outside your door when you stay at Grand View. Then again, if you want to take some time to do nothing more than sit on a rocker listening to songbirds or treat yourself to an afternoon nap, the condo is a great place to do that as well. So book your stay today... before someone else beats you to it! We’re looking forward to seeing you.
