Overview

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.

In addition to the above, we provide all linens and paper goods. We have our own private WiFi server, which is far superior to most other units.

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 daily exercise.

We've seen black bears on the premises more than once, which is always a thrill, but it is expressly forbidden to feed them...so 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 (Dewey)

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 so wonderful to have a home away from home that is both convenient and cozy.

Julie Walls (Dewey) purchased this condo in 2014

Why Julie Walls (Dewey) 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!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a very nice stay at Mountain Dewey. We went over the Fourth of July week. It was clean and comfortable for our family of three. We enjoyed drinking our morning coffee and the mountain views from the deck. The kitchen was well supplied with dinnerware, utensils and cookware. There was also a nice selection of movie DVD's for both kids and adults. We tried out both the indoor and outdoor pools. We would definitely stay here again. The road driving up the mountain is narrow and winding. I would not recommend driving up for the first time at night. GPS is a little spotty in the mountains.

Great condo with a fabulous view.

  • 5 of 5

Overall, the condo was a great place to stay! The view is great from the balcony. It was nice to have 2 bathrooms! The kids enjoyed the pool in the evenings. Although the drive is windy, we loved that it was far enough away from the city. Julie was easily accessible by phone when needed. The kids loved the games that Julie provided at the condo. If you are looking for a place close to the city, but still want to be in the mountains this is the place to stay!

A comfortable place to stay with a gorgeous view.

  • 5 of 5

Mountain Dewey is a comfortable home away from home. This two bedroom, two bathroom condo was perfect for our family of 4. Our children enjoyed sharing their room and swimming in either pool. The view was amazing especially being able to watch the sun setting in the evenings. Although there is so much to do in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and the surrounding areas, it was always nice coming home to a typically quiet place to relax and just enjoy each other's company.

There were little things to call attention to. The door handle of the deck door broke first day we were there. Made opening and closing the sliding door a little difficult. But we still did in order to enjoy the deck. The shower spray is good for taller adults but for shorter or children the spray spreads too far and makes it difficult to rinse hair. They do provide linens but there were 4 towels for 4 people. I typically use two myself (being a woman, one for hair, one for body...) so I wish we had more, we actually bought some at Walmart.

The internet is intermittent. Wish it was more reliable!

Overall, we truly enjoyed our stay and thank Mountain Deeey for giving us this opportunity to stay in their condo. We hope to be able to come back in the future and experience more of the sites we were not able to enjoy this trip. Thank you Mountain Dewey for a great memory with my family!!!

Owner's Response: We're very happy that you enjoyed your stay, especially your appreciation of the peace and quiet comforts after busy days in Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge. Thank you for informing me of the broken door handle. We replaced it with a new one this week...I'm just sorry for the inconvenience it caused during your visit. I also apologize for the lack of towels, and have spoken to housekeeping. There are normally four bath towels in each bathroom. I really do hope you return in the future, because we've just added a huge improvement this week: Our own WiFi system! I've been so frustrated with the complex's internet and cell phone service on top of the mountain that I finally contracted with Charter/Spectrum, and they installed it on 7/11. The first guests to use it have already emailed that the service is great. Thanks so much for both your complimentary and constructive comments!

Fun Things to Do in Great Smoky Mountains

http://www.gatlinburgtrolley.org/video

http://www.gatlinburgtrolley.org/

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!
