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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Gatlinburg, TN, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
