Mountain Dewey's welcomes you to four seasons of fun!

Bedrooms 2
Space 817 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Two bedrooms, 2 baths with unbelievable views!

Begin your mornings with a cup of hot coffee on our balcony with a breathtaking view that overlooks the town of Pigeon Forge, about 10 miles down the mountain. The same view sparkles after dark with the lights from hundreds of shops, restaurants, and fun places to play. There are binoculars and telescopes for your viewing pleasure. The pictures from our balcony are all taken roughly from the same angle at different times of day, and different seasons of the year.

There are three beds, one queen and two twin/singles. A fifth person could sleep on the leather sofa. Plenty of extra quilts, blankets and throws are provided. I personally like to wrap up in a quilt when sitting on the balcony. Our retro table and chairs are cute, but that metal can chill you in the crisp morning air when the temps drop.

Besides the usual furnishings of most rentals, we've added extra goodies to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The kitchen is fully equipped with anything you might need for cooking. Other conveniences are a microwave, toaster, a full-size coffee maker plus a single-serve Keurig coffee maker, blender, iron, ironing board, and hair dryers. Games, books, and puzzles are provided, as well as over 100 DVDs for both children and adults. Cable television is in the living room. There are three flat screen TVs, two of which are smart TVs and two are equipped with DVD players. WiFi is provided by The Summit condominiums.

On the grounds you will find free wood for the fireplace, gas grills and picnic tables, a heated outdoor pool, an indoor pool, plus two hot tubs. Coin operated laundry facilities are in the main office building, as well as vending machines and games. Basketball goals and a small playground are in the parking lot area, which is large enough to walk or jog around for your morning exercise.

We've seen black bears on the premises more than once, which is always a thrill, but it is expressly forbidden to feed no throwing food off the balcony!

In addition to signing our guestbook, we would appreciate you leaving a review on this site, especially with suggestions as to improvements needed or other ways in which we can make your visit more pleasurable.

Thank you for considering Mountain Dewey's for your stay in the Great Smoky Mountains. We look forward to being your host!

About Julie Walls

This is our grandson on his first zip line experience, just outside Pigeon Forge, TN. He visits us from Vancouver, B.C. and we love taking him to see the sights in the Smokies. I am Dewey of 'Mountain Dewey's' and my husband is Poppy, a retired mail carrier. We're native Tennesseans, living in Knoxville, and are enjoying being second home owners for the first time, hoping that you will fall in love with everything that east Tennessee has to offer.

It's just wonderful to have a home away from home that is both convenient and cozy.

Julie Walls purchased this condo in 2014

Why Julie Walls chose Gatlinburg

My grandparents had one of the first vacation cabins in the Smokies. Sadly, they sold it before I was born, but I still enjoy driving by it up near the apple orchard off Airport Road. It's near the old Holston Camp Grounds, where I attended Methodist church camp every summer as a young girl. If I recall correctly, that old cabin is still standing on Mandalay Way, where my grandaddy built the stone wall in front, and also planted the old tree (now huge) in the yard.

Maybe this is why I find having a place in the Smoky Mountains so very comforting.

What makes this condo unique

Well you can't argue with the price. Four good friends could hole up here for less than $35 a night at the highest rate. Off-season is an even better bargain. There's everything you need, plus some of the most spectacular views you'll ever see.

We offer completely furnished, tastefully decorated and comfortable lodging for you and your family or friends at some of the most reasonable rates available, and would love to have you stay at Mountain Dewey's!

Good afternoon Julie

Sorry for the late of our comment about your apartment, the areas of the apartment are very confortable, and the place very quiet unfortunately does not have a good maintenance, the oven was very dirty and we could not use it, just like the linen and the towels They had a musty smell, many areas of the apartment were dirty, obviously lack of maintenance. In one of the curtains of the room is fallen on one side, we had to be very careful with the baby not to have it close because we were afraid that he would fall on that curtain.

The access road to the building is complicated as it does not have any kind of lighting or eyes on the floor, so returning at night is quite risky, and at 5 pm we had to be in the apartment.

We hope you can improve the maintenance details of your apartment as it has a lot of potential for a good holiday.

best regards

Beautiful view and super cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Mountain Dewey's was wonderful! My husband and I had stayed at The Summit earlier in the year in a smaller unit but came back with our two small children this time and chose Mountain Dewey's.

The condo had everything we needed and the view was beautiful from the balcony. The kids loved the view and very much enjoyed the telescope that was available.

We took advantage of the board games on our first night there and had a family game night as we settled in with some pizza from Ski Mountain Pizza- the best on the mountain! We tried a different pizza place on a previous visit and we agree that Ski Mountain Pizza is the best!

We didn't spend a whole lot of time in the condo because we were too busy squeezing in all the stuff to do with our kids but what time we were there, it was cozy and we got good rest.

The only bummer was that we never saw any bears. Oh well, maybe next time!

The owner Julie was great to communicate with throughout the process. From the time we booked to the time of our visit, she always kept me informed via email, even suggesting some websites and activities for the kids during our visit.

When we get the chance to come back, we will definitely stay at Mountain Dewey's again!

Thank you for a lovely place to call our home away from home while on vacation.

Fun Things to Do in Great Smoky Mountains

Avoid the hassle of driving everywhere and explore downtown Gatlinburg and the Artist's Colony by taking the Trolley. An all day pass is only $2 per person with unlimited boardings. There's even a special Trolley that goes to Dollywood. Passes are available at the two Gatlinburg Welcome Centers and City Hall, as well as various businesses around town.

Fall Foliage Viewing

Enjoy Tennessee's beautiful Smoky Mountains in the Fall. Foliage viewing begins in September and continues through November.

Whether driving in the comfort of your car or hiking to get closer to nature, there are trails for all to enjoy the colorful fall foliage among 100 species of native trees throughout the Great Smoky Mountains. With over 10 million visitors each year, it's clear why this land is for those who love the outdoors.

Photo Tours

Some of the most popular photography spots in the Smokies include:

1. Mount LeConte, which is the highest peak in the Eastern part of the United States at an elevation of 6,593 feet

2. Cades Cove where white tailed deer, wild turkeys, foxes, and bears are among the 11-mile one-way loop around the cove which features a grist mill, a variety of barns, three churches, and a marvelous collection of log homes and out buildings. Enjoy the cabins, fields, morning fog, historic churches and other buildings.

3. Cataloochee which is one of the more picturesque areas of the park with elk being reintroduced to the park in 2001.

4. Clingman's Dome, which is 6,643 feet and the highest point in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, is the highest point in Tennessee and the third highest mountain east of the Mississippi. From its observation tower on the summit you can have a 360 degree view of the Smokies and beyond. This has a steep half-mile walk to the tower.

5. Don't forget the scenery at Ramsey Cascades. Being the highest waterfall in the Smokies, it follows rushing rivers and streams for most of its length.

6. The Mountain Farm Museum is a unique collection of farm buildings assembled from locations throughout the park. Visitors can go into a log farmhouse, barn, apple house, springhouse, and a working blacksmith shop to feel how it felt to live there 100 years ago. Most of the structures were built in the late 19th century and were moved here in the 1950s. The Davis House offers a unique chance to view a log house built from chestnut wood before the chestnut blight destroyed most of the American Chestnuts in the eastern United States during the 1930s and early 1940s.

7. Cades Cove Riding Stables offers a 1.5 – 2 hour hayride around the Cades Cove Loop Road. Passengers sit on a bed of hay in a trailer pulled by a truck and enjoy an open air view of the scenery of Cades Cove. Reservations are generally required and can be made by calling (865) 448-9009. Rates are $6.00 per person.

8. Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen

This place makes country taffy as you watch through the front window of the store or inside. Going inside is a must with caramel apples, chocolate bears on a stick and turtles that taste as good as they look. The fudge is homemade and hand stirred with huge wooden paddles in copper pots; no matter what kind you get, it's mouth watering. This candy kitchen also gives out taffy samples. There are two locations in downtown Gatlinburg.

9. Biking in Cades Cove

You can bring your own bike or rent one of theirs to ride through the Cove. This trail is for part time bikers as well as people that bike as a sport with an 11 mile loop to enjoy the beauty, wildlife and historical buildings. Don't let the 11 mile loop deter you, though. There is a cut across to shorten the journey, and either trail is worth it.

From May - September, the loop road is closed to motor vehicle traffic on Wednesday and Saturday mornings until 10:00 a.m. to allow bicyclists and pedestrians to enjoy the cove.

Relax by a Mountain River

Throughout the Smokies you may be enticed from your car by the sight, sound, and feel of clear, cool mountain streams that tumble down slopes as frothy cascades and waterfalls.

You may enjoy hiking to a waterfall or just listening quietly to a stream and observing the plants and animals that live in these cool waters. At any time of year, streams are inviting. Water splashing over mossy rocks seems to evoke a response in people, as though they were drawn to it by some ancient instinctive attraction.

Zip Lines

What better way to enjoy the beauty of fall foliage than on a zip line in the Smoky Mountains! You'll find zip lines in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Townsend, and Sevierville. Flying through the trees at up to 40 miles per hour is an exhilarating experience you'll never forget.

Zip lining is the fastest growing attraction in the Great Smoky Mountains, where awe inspiring panoramic views meet heart-pounding excitement!
