About the property

Affordable studio loft unit offering unsurpassed mountain and valley views


If your looking for an affordable lodging alternative while visiting the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge/Great Smoky Mountains you have clicked on the right listing.

Unit 7301 at the Gatlinburg Summit is a cozy studio loft with spectacular views of the mountains and valleys below. On a clear day you can see what appears to be forever and ever. At night the view is of the twinkling city lights below. On special events you can watch the fireworks of both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge without fighting the traffic and crowds.

Inside this third floor walk up unit you will find a comfortably appointed and updated decor. There is an open loft bedroom with a comfy queen bed plus there is a comfy, queen sized platform bed in the great room.

There is a fully equipped kitchen with a stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator/freezer with ice maker and all the utensils, pots, pans, dishes that you will need to prepare a full meal should you want to save even more money during your visit. There is even a Keurig coffee maker and crock pot.

The vaulted living room has a wood burning fireplace and the community provides all the firewood you want to use during your stay for no charge. There is a 50' HDTV with full cable and HBO in this area as well.

Take the spiral stairway up to the loft and you will find a comfy, queen sized log bed. A sky light (with black out shade) plus additional windows provides tons of natural light. There is an additional 32" TV in the loft.

The Gatlinburg Summit features indoor and outdoor pools plus communal indoor spas. There is a small play ground and gas grills at the club house plus a very nice and well maintained coin operated laundry. The complex features complimentary Wi Fi throughout.

The complex is surrounded by nature and thus is very quite and peaceful. People gather on the side where this unit is located to take photos of the sun setting over the mountains. It is really quite a beautiful site. At any given time you might look down from the balcony to see wild turkey, bunny rabbits, deer, eagles and yes, even black bear roaming below you. And quite?? This is one of the most peaceful locations you will ever find.

Gatlinburg and the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park are only 3 miles down the mountain and 15 minutes or less if you take the Gatlinburg Bypass. Pigeon Forge, Dollywood and most other area attractions are 20-30 minutes away as well.

Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort is a short 1 mile from the complex.

If your looking for beautiful views and affordable lodging my unit at The Gatlinburg Summit is the place to stay. NOTE: If you need more lodging I have a two bedroom, two bath unit in the building next to this unit. It is VRBO listing 227885.

NOTE: The SUMMIT is an apt name for this complex because it is located at an elevation of 3000 ft. While only a short 3 miles from the action of downtown Gatlinburg, the roads leading up to the Summit traverse the side of Ski Mountain. The roads are paved all the way and are maintained by the City of Gatlinburg so they are easily accessible year round. For anyone coming from low lying areas, the drive up can be a little intimidating the first couple of times but once your used to it you will have no problems.

About Randall Crum

As a teenager my friends and I used to go up to the top of Ski Mountain and sit and stare out at the amazing views in this big vacant lot which is now the home of the Gatlinburg Summit complex. Little did I know back then that I would one day own a couple of units in this complex. The views swept me away back then and they still do today. Every time I venture up to the Summit it is an absolute treat.

Randall Crum purchased this condo in 2014

Why Randall Crum chose Chalet Village

I can sum that up in one word. VIEWS

What makes this condo unique

Staying at the Gatlinburg Summit is like staying in the national park itself. It is so very quite and peaceful. You will most likely see an abundance of native wild life roaming the grounds. And the sunrises and sunsets are incredible.

Very clean and well stocked for its size. AMAZING views and close to downtown. My son loved the indoor pool and loft bedroom. We will definitely keep this one bookmarked for our next trip to the area.

Had a great view and we loved having the indoor pool!

The only thing that I thought the condo should have was dishwasher cleaner. I ended up having to wash all our dishes by hand.

Cozy, quiet and just what we needed at a fair price.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week long stay here. The size was so appropriate for our small family. The rooms were clean and comfortable and we had no issues at all with anything. Our kids loved the spiral staircase. Driving up and down the mountain to the location each day was a nice addition in itself to our trip. The view from the balcony is simply gorgeous day and night and worth every cent of the rate.

Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort
Car: recommended

Located high atop Ski Mountain in Gatlinburg at an elevation of 3000 ft., this location provides panoramic views of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the cities of Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville below. The views from the Summit are THE BEST in the area. On a clear day you can see what seems like forever. On a clear night the twinkling city lights of all three cities are a site to behold. On special events such as New Years and Fourth of July you can watch the fireworks from both cities and when Dollywood does fire works you can see those too. You can even hear the Dollywood train whistle blowing in the distance during park hours.

When your at the complex you will witness an abundance of wild life right there from your third floor balcony. It is common to see wild turkey, deer, bunny rabbits and yes, black bear roaming the grounds below.

If your seeking peace and quite, you will not be disappointed with a stay at the Summit.

Sunrise and sunsets are a wonderful time to be there too. A recent guest commented that he felt closer to God while staying there and that sums up my sentiments exactly. Just looking out at the beautiful creation that God created is inspirational in itself.
