About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)


NOTE: If this unit is booked I also have a studio loft unit that will sleep 2 adults and 2 small children. Email me for details.

Looking for a GREAT DEAL??? Want unsurpassed mountain views??? Want updated accommodations???? Look no further.

This unit is newly remodeled with gleaming hardwood floors, new baths with tubs, toilets, vanities and tile.

The master bedroom has a relaxing Jacuzzi tub (no other units in the Summit have one). The kitchen has brand new appliances and granite counters. This is without a doubt one of if not the nicest units in the complex.

This condo is located at the Gatlinburg Summit. If you have never stayed there you are in for a treat. If you have, then you already know how beautiful and peaceful this mountain top retreat is. A walk around the complex provides 360 degree breathtaking views of the Great Smoky Mountains and long range views of downtown Gatlinburg from one side and the Pigeon Forge/Sevierville valley below. The view of the night lights are a site to behold. Sunrises and Sunsets are another special time at the Summit as well. While family friendly, the Summit is also perfect for a romantic get away too.

Affordable and comfortable, this 2 BR 2 BA condo is located 3 miles from downtown Gatlinburg, near the ski slopes and has easy access to all of the area attractions including Dollywood, Rocky Top Sports, Ripley's Aquarium of the Smoky's and the entrance of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park via the Gatlinburg bypass. This unit has newer, queen beds in each bedroom and a queen sized sleeper sofa. Ideal for couples and small families (maximum occupancy, 4 adults and 2-4 children or 2-3 adults and 1-2 children). The Summit is NOT PET FRIENDLY!!! If you need pet friendly accommodations see my cabin rental listings.

Professionally decorated with brand newer furnishings throughout including TV/DVD players in bedrooms and living area with full cable. The living room has a 40" TV with Netflix movies on demand. There is private Wi-Fi internet access for this unit plus Wi Fi throughout the complex. A wood burning fireplace compliments the unit with free firewood. Oh, and did I mention the views from your not one but TWO balconies? On one side there is a panoramic view of Mt. Leconte, downtown Gatlinburg and the Ober Gatlinburg Tram. On the other you can see all the way to Pigeon Forge, Sevierville and beyond. It is almost as pretty at night as it is in the daytime.

Community features indoor and outdoor pools, sauna, 2 indoor hot tubs, playground and basketball goal. A very nice and well kept coin laundry is located in the clubhouse area where the indoor pools and spas are located.

The Summit grounds are like a nature preserve. It is common to see deer, wild turkey, bunny rabbits eagles and even mama and baby bear from the safety of your own private balcony.

This unit is a incredible value compared to others within The Summit complex. This unit is very well maintained and professionally cleaned. All linens, dishes, pots and pans supplied. Bring only your personal items and beach towels for the pools/spa. This condo has newer furnishings.

GROUND FLOOR with a few steps leading down to the unit and plenty of secure well lit parking.

Like to snow ski, tube and ice skate? The Summit overlooks Ober Gatlinburg and is less than an mile from the complex.

Randall Crum Properties is a proud member of The Gatlinburg Area Chamber of Commerce.

NOTE: The Gatlinburg Summit is NOT a pet friendly complex. If you need pet friendly lodging please let me know and I can email you a link to all of my pet friendly cabins.

This unit has its own dedicated, secure WI FI.

We also have a blue ray DVD player in the living room and you can also watch Net Flix movies on demand for free.

About Randall Crum

A native of East Tennessee I now live in Savannah, Georgia. Savannah, for all of it's beauty does not compare to the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains. If you have been to the area then you know what I am referring to. If you have never been to the Smoky Mountains then you are in for an absolute treat. By all means take a drive through the Smoky Mountains, either to Cherokee, NC or over to Cades Cove. The best part about this drive is it's spectacular beauty and it doesn't cost a dime other than the gas to get there. I suggest you pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the great outdoors. For first timers, it is an experience you will never forget.

Randall Crum purchased this condo in 2009

Why Randall Crum chose Gatlinburg

I chose to buy a condo in the Gatlinburg Summit complex because of one reason and one reason only....THE VIEWS. I had been looking at units in this complex for over a year and finally lucked out and found a unit in the very best building of the complex. The complex was one of the first built up on the mountain but it has been very well maintained throughout the years. The management and staff have been in place for upwards of 20 years and they take great pride in keeping everything in tip top shape.

What makes this condo unique

VIEWS...VIEWS...and, well, VIEWS.

Guestbook comments from the owner

In response to an email asking this guest how they enjoyed their stay they responded as follows:

It was clean and comfortable and I enjoyed being able to have coffee every morning on the balcony. A plus was seeing a bear two different times. The first one was a cub and the second one an adult bear taking a stroll just when it had gotten too dark to get a good picture. We got a picture of the cub though. Thanks for an affordable vacation! I wouldn't hesitate to come back.

Great Place to Stay!

The view off the balcony is awesome!!

The unit was very clean and nice!

Quiet serenity along with the bountiful view and fresh air was worth the trip. The owner is very easy to work with.

Madison, wi

Awesome Views!

  • 3 of 5

The condo had seen better days, for example the patio door was very hard to open and the furniture was worn. The view was awesome especially from the parking lot, the view from inside the condo was diminished by the streaky patio door window (it was streaky in between the windows, so I was unable to clean) and the torn window screens.

Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

The stay was amazing. Everything we could have wanted. Beautiful view! My only complaint is that the keurig coffee maker had black mold in it so we couldn't use it that week :( But otherwise the condo is perfect!

Breath taking views!!

  • 5 of 5

Riding through the Great Smokey Mountains is a bucket list item, however, seeing the mountains from this location causes one to pause and stare in awe. It is unfortunate the sliding glass door to the balcony view requires the strength of a man to be able to access and the view through the glass is filmy. Location is ideal; far enough away from Gatlinburg traffic but not too far to get somewhere. Quiet serenity along with the bountiful view and fresh air was worth the trip. The owner is very easy to work with and provided great information about the area and available adventures. Thoroughly enjoyed a meal at No Way Jose, Mexican Restaurant in Gatlinburg. Shortcut to Ober Gatlinburg a huge plus. Available firewood terrific. Indoor heated pool and sauna perfect after a 6 mile hike. The condo was satisfactorily equipped from blankets to kitchen items. Just about every electronic kitchen item is available. Cleanliness would be my only concern in the future. Upon arrival there was evidence in the kitchen of a previous meal in the oven and on the floor. Food under the couch, spider webs around the fireplace and once living creatures fill the window sills. If you are looking for a well-worn, rustic cabin atmosphere, you have found it.

Very clean nice quiet weekend away. Keyless entry made it easy.

  • 4 of 5

Some basic coffee supplies like half and half and sugar packets and a few kcups would have made for a nicer stay. Once you get up the mountain you don't want to go back down except when you plan to go out for the day. Luigi Pizza delivers that's nice. The condo is comfortable.
