Location is the only saving grace
FYI we didn’t have lofty expectations given past reviews. We were still disappointed in the condition of the property. Everything was dirty, and outdated except the towels which thankfully were clean. Renovated is the word used in the description and this is misleading. We had the same issue as previous guests, received email stating door access code was one thing then when we arrived at 11:45 pm the code didn’t work. Thankfully someone answered at the number provided and they gave us the right code. Says sleeps 8 with an air mattress but there’s nowhere you could put one so really sleeps 6. The balcony is tiny with enough room to seat 2 but the view is very nice. We were just disappointed we couldn’t all enjoy it at once. Tvs came on but we could not access any cable or antenna channels so they were useless. We also found no WiFi info. The loft does stay warm even with the ceiling and stand fans and there’s a skylight with no cover so it gets bright very early. We didn’t cook but kitchen seemed to have the necessities even though the appliances are old and grungy and we can’t confirm they work. We had no problems but you should be aware the access roads to these condos are very steep and winding. Pool areas were nice and there’s a tiny slide and swings for very small children. Condo was simply a place to sleep and shower but little else. We won’t return.
Kendra and Rob, we're glad you enjoyed the beautiful location and breathtaking views! However, we're sorry to hear that your stay fell short of your expectations. We strive to make our listings as accurate as possible-it's one of our 4 Core Property Standards. We use professionals for both pictures, and the listing description, to precisely advertise the property. This way, all guests can know what to expect before booking, but we're sorry if you felt your experience wasn't fitting to the listing. We apologize if you had any trouble with cleanliness during your stay, and the homeowners are taking measures to ensure this won't be an issue for future guests. The air mattress can fit in the living room, although we realize it is a tight fit, so we apologize for any inconvenience. The Wifi is the community Wifi, but we're sorry for the difficulty you had using it. For any maintenance or amenities issues, we encourage guests to contact the property manager so any problem can be dealt with immediately. We thank you for your feedback, as we are always open to suggestions to improve for future guests. These owners go above and beyond for their travelers, and we're confident this property will continue to host many satisfied guests! Best, the Evolve Team
The condo was perfect, beautifully kept, nicely decorated and had everything we needed.
It was great. Perfect for us The view was outstanding! Pictures don’t do it justice
We couldnt figure out the tv or WiFi but we were only there a weekend so we didn’t worry to much.
Summer Family Vacation
This is our 5th time staying at the Summit condos over the years because we love it! You cannot beat the views from the balcony! The condo was great, plenty of room for me and my family. The loft was a little warm but we always travel with a fan so that helped. The kitchen was well stocked (check under the sink for more pans, bowls, strainer etc). Since we've been here before we are well aware at the size of the kitchen but we make do. The beds were comfy. The smaller shower could definitely use some Drano and new caulk (its moldy). The broken door handle was kind of an inconvenience having only one key. It just meant that we all had to stay together which turned out to be nice. But overall we loved our stay! and would definitely rent again. Yes, its a hairy drive up but you are staying at the top of a mountain! Be careful and you will be fine! The views are worth it for sure. As for the wifi- we couldn't find the directions but we didn't care. We were there for vacation and to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of life. If wifi it that important I suggest a nice hotel room in Pigeon Forge. Thanks for the great vacay!
The description online is just like the condo is inside. Very comfortable and just mins from downtown. The stairs wasn't bad at all, but the steep roads leading to it are STEEP.
No WiFi only issue and needs a updated stove! And I would rather tile on the floor instead of carpet! The whole place could use updating but besides that the view was good!
Not what was expected
The room itself is a little smaller than expected but decorated nicely. The kitchen has everything you need but the oven doesn’t really work well. When we arrived we found the doorknob on the inside was broken, the couch is ripped, and the screen to the balcony is ripped. When we first got here the code wasn’t changed and when I tried to reach the owner he never called me back. I had to call VRBO to get into the room. The views are great and it’s peaceful and quite. We even got to see a couple of bears from the condo. The most upsetting part of the trip is that the owner never replied back, even when VRBO reached out to “all parties involved” to get the door changed. Thankfully they had a code that worked or we would have been 8 hours from home with no where to stay.
Megan, we're sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with your stay. The homeowner is aware of several damages that were caused by a previous guest. The damages were primarily of aesthetic nature, rather than functionality, so the decision was made to honor all upcoming reservations so that guests wouldn't be left without accommodations. They are working diligently to have these issues repaired so future guests can fully enjoy this beautiful condo. We're confident that the problem with the entry code was an isolated incident, but do apologize for the lack of communication from the guest contact. They typically provide five-star hospitality and are available 24/7 to help with any questions or concerns. The owner was unaware of the issues you experienced and they truly go above and beyond for their guests. We are confident this condo will continue to host many satisfied guests. Best, the Evolve Team
