Overview

About the property

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

THIS UNIT AND COMPLEX WERE NOT DAMAGED BY THE RECENT WILDFIRES!! WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS AND WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR BOOKING!!

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 Chalet Village

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.

Gorgeous, Serene Views at an Affordable Price

  • 5 of 5

My retired mother, my 1.5 year old son, and I enjoyed the Summit condo for 5 days in Sept 2017. This was our third trip to Gatlinburg, and it was my personal favorite. I loved the feel of the mountain privacy and quiet, but yet still having neighbors to keep you safe :) we loved the two bathrooms, as well as the two bedrooms. Great separation for two adult females!

We didn't use the second balcony next to the kitchen, but we used the main balcony to watch the sunrise and sunsets. We even saw a few bear cubs playing right outside that window... and then got scared to death as mama came rumbling into the scene unexpectedly! It was the highlight of our trip!

The drive was NOT scary after the first up and down the mountain... once we pulled out the drivers manual and learned how to use the manual drive in our automatic ;)

gorgeous views the whole drive up and down... you don't even need to do a gondola ride!

When in town, visit the Timbers Log Cabin restaurant in the Arts and Crafts community. Hands down the best meal we had!!

Only thing I would change is a wash down of the furniture in the livingroom-- couch and chairs need to be washed and cleaned, from daily use.

We will be back!

Owner's Response: Dear Rebecca, Thank you very much for your kind words regarding your stay at my Gatlinburg Summit Condo. I am glad that you enjoyed everything including the wildlife. I will be sure to have the carpet cleaning people go up and shampoo the upholstery in the living room. I hope that you will come back and visit again sometime. Sincerely, Randall

GREAT place to stay but needed maintance updates.

  • 4 of 5

Views were GREAT and saw (3) bears the 1st evening!

Condo Needed: Patio Door is almost impossible to open, cookware was so nasty, (cookie sheet was rusty, non stick cookware was worn and scratched). We had to go to town to buy some so I could cook, TV in master bedroom didnot work, Electrical outlets in both bedrooms need replaced as my husband is on a C-Pac machine to sleep and the outlet was so loose his machine kept turning off, door knob to master bathroom was about to fall off (I tightened it up) Door to hallway bathroom drags on the floor and could not be opened all the way! ALL the fire extinguishers were in 1 place and need to be in different places.

Owner's Response: Dear Terry, Thank you for staying at my Gatlinburg Summit condo and for taking the time to provide this list of things we need to do. I will have maintenance check out the outlets, door handles and dragging door and TV. I will also order replacement cookware. I am not sure why there were so many fire extinguishers in the unit but I will make sure that the one that is supposed to be there is in its proper place which is under the kitchen sink. The sliding glass door is scheduled for replacement in January. Again, thank you for the list and I hope you will stay with us again sometime. Randall

Time for a new sliding door Randall

Owner's Response: The unit is shut down the week of 11-12 for paint and hopefully carpet installation in the bedrooms. If not then, it will be done after the first of the year. The carpet has already been purchased. Other than that, I am not sure what other "updating" you are referring to.

Scary Drive

  • 3 of 5

Everything went well. We ladies felt is was way way to far in the mountains. I think somewhere it should be conveyed its 4 miles up. We would have looked for something closer to the ground. We felt we missed out on a lot of our vacation time to do evening dinners in town cause we wanted to be up to the condo before dark so we were not driving the mountain in the dark. It was a learning experience not want to experience again.

The unit was ok, pretty dated. We felt it needed a good cleaning. We could write out names in the master bedroom on the head board. Underneath the kitchen sick it was pretty unclean.

We loved the area & will be back but will stay in town.

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.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

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.
