You know the old saying, You get what you pay, well, you get a lot for your money at Above Par Condo, you will find many amenites that you will not find in the budget rentals. If you want an Immaculately clean and comfortable vacation condo with luxury touches, you have found the right place and we believe one of the best values in the Smokies.

You will find this condo to truly be “Above Par” We purchased this condo in Deer Ridge Resort in The Village of Cobbly Nob as our vacation home in the Smokies that we have visited for many many years. We have stayed in many motels, hotels, cabins and condos in Gatlinburg over the years. As for the privately owned cabins or condos, there were some that were very lacking in cleanliness and amenities. So we decided to learn from those experiences and make our condo a welcome change in vacation rentals. Luxury touches have been added to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

About Jeff Haynes

Jeff & Debbie Haynes from West by God Virginia. We honeymooned in Gatlinburg in 1977 and had always wanted to have a vacation home there. We purchased 'Above par Condo' in 2007 and have not regretted it. We love the area and visit several times a year. We have 2 grown children and 1 beautiful Grandaughter.

Jeff Haynes purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jeff Haynes chose Gatlinburg

We looked at many condos in the Gatlinburg Area and found Deer Ridge Resort to be one of the best maintained properties. But the number one reason by far was the spectacular views from practically every unit. The quiet and relaxing area of Cobbly Nob was also an important factor. We love downtown Gatlinburg, however it is quite nice to get away from the hustle and bustle with the short drive to Above Par.

What makes this condo unique

Cleanliness and comfort is our goal. You will find many luxury ammenites and personal touches at Above Par Condo, We have upgraded all the furnishings throughout the condo. There are 3 LCD TVs. The 'kids' room has 2 comfy twin beds and it's own LCD TV and DVD player. You will have access to all of Deer Ridge Resort's facilities including an indoor pool, spa, sauna, steam room and game room. Tennis court, basketball court, kid's playground & walking trail all on the property. There are 3 outdoor community pools a short drive from the complex.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great visit! Loved the view and enjoyed all the comforts of home Above Par provides. Very nice place to come back fo after a day of doing the tourist thing!

Wonderful Condo with Outstanding Views!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough good things about this condo!! It was the perfect size and layout for a family of 4. Everything was so nice and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed for cooking our meals. The beds were very comfortable, and it was so convenient to have 2 bathrooms. The porch and view were amazing! The location is outside of the bustle of Gatlinburg (with everything still very easily accessible) in a quiet area which we loved. We could go on and on. Our little girls loved all the Easter decorations and the bunny plates that were left on the counter. The owners were very responsive with all the information we needed and very quick to reply to questions. Above Par is such a lovely place to stay and we will certainly be back!

Probably not the best value.

  • 2 of 5

Kitchen is small. Living room is small. Heating system is not adequate for winter months. The floor and rooms are cool. Everything needs to be updated.

Owner's Response: I am not sure how to respond to this review. I have never had a review less than 4 stars. Our unit is probably one of the best values in Gatlinburg, EVERYTHING is updated including the heating system. As you can see from ALL other reviews it is kept immaculately clean and has a spectacular view. We decorate for the holidays and go out of our way to make our guests comfortable. I always text or email guests when they arrive to make sure everything is satisfactory...this person never replied. I guess some people cannot be pleased.

After staying in this unit twice this past year, we are very impressed beyond words. We have been going to the smokies for many many years and this unit is the cleanest most well equipped condo that we have ever stayed in. The unit is well arranged, compact and just perfect for couples. The owners have thought of every little detail to really make your stay enjoyable. We can't think of anything that the owners should change! Deer Ridge does have the best or one of best views in the smokies. The staff is very friendly, pleasant and helpful. The food is very good in the lounge. We also enjoyed the walking trail. Above Par Too is our home away from home in the Smokies.

Perfect Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo was extremely clean and literally had everything we needed. The view of the mountains was absolutely amazing!!! We slept so comfortably on the mattress in the master bedroom. Everything about this condo was absolutely clean, well-kept, and beautiful. I would recommend this condo to anyone, and I would definitely stay there again.

My family of 4 really took advantage of all the things offered at the condo. Swimming, relaxing fire, played few games of pool. It's a great condo and great location. All of the 5 star reviews are legit. We had a wonderful vacation.
