About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Gorgeous Mountain Views For Miles Military-senior discounts

NOTE: Our complex here at The Summit didn't get any fire damage and the areas surrounding our complex are still beautiful. The ski resort is still nice as it was and we invite you to come see! Downtown shops and most park trails are still as great as they were before the fires. Please come support our local economy, we depend on our visitors and appreciate you so much!

ALL ABOUT THE VIEW: We are so excited to be sharing our condo with others. Also if you need super hi speed internet, this is the place! It has its own dedicated cable wifi. We are up on the mountain several times a year to paint and do other updates to make this a truly beautiful vacation getaway. We just installed new vinyl plank flooring in the hallways and bathrooms which really made them shine! We have installed carpet in the bedrooms and living room and a new sofa with built in recliners has been delivered as well. We are doing all we can to continue to make this a special place for our guests so that they will want to visit time and time again.

We have had a host of wonderful vacationers stay and almost all have posted such nice comments! Ask about our military, and senior discounts.

Sit on your balcony first thing in the morning to enjoy a cup of coffee and the views of the clouds drifting through the valleys below. Watch as wild life, (which may include bears) roam through the complex (typically late afternoon or early morning). In the evening enjoy looking down at the twinkling lights all the way to Sevierville. Watch Dollywood fireworks in season from the balcony as well.

Enjoy the heated pools and relax in a nice warm hot tub. Nestle into the cozy window seat to read a book or to surf the web ( we pay extra for our own high speed cable internet) while looking out over the mountain vistas. Cuddle in front of a crackling fire (free firewood provided, ask at the office) as you unwind from a day of sightseeing or shopping.

The condo borders The Smoky Mountain National Park, and it is just a short drive down the mountain to the entrance where you can experience the beauty via an auto tour or by hiking one of the many trails to a waterfall, or to panoramic overlooks. Spend the day in Gatlinburg where you will find plenty shopping, dining, shows, museums, and a great Aquarium. Nearby Pigeon Forge hosts Dollywood Theme Park and a splash park, outlet shopping, live shows, museums, helicopter tours and amusement fun for kids of all ages!

The Summit Condos are in the Chalet Village area near the top of Ski Mountain and they offer panoramic mountain views. The condo is only about a mile from Ober Gatlinburg which offers year round family fun and it is a short 10 minute drive to downtown Gatlinburg. Be aware that bears often cross the road so drive carefully. The road is winding and is steep at times so be sure to be alert when going up and down. You get used to it I promise. Once in the complex you will find plenty parking (much of it level) near the entrance to the stairwell going up to our unit. NOTE: If you need a 3 bedroom unit check out our other condo which is up the road about a half mile at High Chalet. We just bought it in Dec. 2014. vrbo 653549

If this one isn't available, we also have other 2 bedroom condos 3 blocks up the road , vrbo 721628 and vrbo 721605 (we purchased those in June of 2015) If you check there, you will see that we have excellent reviews! Check in is at 4pm and check out is at 10 am. This gives our cleaning crew time to get things fresh and clean between guests. We aim to keep all of our units nice and clean.

About Karen Hoblit

As a child growing up in middle Tennessee one of my favorite things to do was to go to the Smokies! I used to love wading the creeks, hiking up trails to waterfalls and watching candy makers stretch taffy in the candy shops in Gatlinburg. It was like being in a fantasy world. It took us away from all the chores at home and school.

As an adult I have traveled to many places both in and out of our country and I still rank the Smoky Mountains as one of those places where you love to come back to, over and over again. There is always something new to see and experience. It takes me back to a slower time where people were more into nature and just sitting on the front porch soaking up the view.

Karen Hoblit purchased this condo in 2013

Why Karen Hoblit chose Gatlinburg

We looked for almost two years at various places up in the mountains, to find a place that had great views, was close to nature, with amenities such as a heated pool, and a place with a friendly helpful staff. We found that at The Summit.

What makes this condo unique

The first time we looked out across all those mountain ranges to the city way below we fell in love with this place. It is so peaceful to open the sliding glass doors in the morning and drink in all the sights and sounds of the national park. There are no houses or roads below the condo on our side and it is quiet on the balcony except for the wind rushing through the trees at times.

The window seat is especially inviting and unique from other units that we viewed and we love the floor plan since it gives everyone privacy and space to do their own thing while on vacation together.

We hope to be able to enjoy this retreat as well as share it with visitors as a place to make wonderful memories for years to come.

We hope that you will come and make memories too. Bring your camera, you will need it! Warmest wishes, Karen :)

We had a great stay and loved the view!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The condo was clean and well furnished. Big HD TV and good secure WiFi. Our kids really enjoyed the indoor heated pool in the community building in the center of the complex. The back deck had an awesome view of the valley to the north overlooking Pigeon Forge. It was very quiet outside.

The only negative is that the floors of the condo are very noisy (squeaky). There are lots of places where the floor squeaks. When guests checked in upstairs the second night, it was pretty loud just from them walking around. It didn't ruin our stay but it was very noticeable and loud when they were inside upstairs.

All in all, we enjoyed our vacation there and would stay there again!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had a good time. The views are gorgeous this time of the year. I know what you mean about the squeaky floors upstairs. It is hit or miss, sometimes the place above is empty and sometimes there are people that are very considerate and then at other times there are those that just don't care who is below. When we had our new carpet and flooring installed last year we had the installers screw long screws into the floor joists to help with any squeaking before they placed the carpet and vinyl in. That is all that can be done they said. I believe many of the units up there suffer from the same problem. I don't notice it much when I am there though. I hope you all will come back again sometime! :)

Will definitely stay again!

  • 5 of 5

First impression of the condo is clean! Second is definitely the view I can't get over the view at this place! The beds were comfortable very nice furniture! Third the owners Ms Karen was super easy to contact and she never took long to respond at all! It takes maybe 6-7 mins to get down the mountain to downtown gatlinburg. I would strongly recommend staying here you can't go wrong!

Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

No complaints at all, this condo has a great welcoming and homey feeling. Loved the fireplace, the beautiful view, the TV was fantastic, new carpet and other nice touches. Perfect for a family of 2, 3 or 4. We use VRBO for rentals most everywhere we go, and this one was one of the best. Highly recommended!

Peaceful & clean

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed for 4 nights & 5 days at this clean and peaceful condo and really enjoyed our stay. The road up the mountain to the condo was extremely overwhelming at first but the more times we went up and down to spend time in downtown Gatlinburg (which was only about 10 minutes away) we got used to the road. The condo had a beautiful view and was the perfect size for our family of four. The first night there was noise coming from people upstairs and we noticed the toilet seat was broken in one of the bathrooms. First thing the following morning I wrote to Karen and she immediately responded with solutions. From reading a review prior to booking this condo I recalled someone writing a poor review and Karen said she wished they had notified her while visiting instead of after the fact. This was another reason I contacted Karen as soon as there was a problem. Thank you Karen for allowing us to stay in your condo this summer.
