About Randall Crum

I am an owner of several vacation rental properties in the area. I stayed in this unit in the Summer of 2015 when all of my rentals were booked. I fell in love with its convenient location. I love to be park my vehicle and walk to what I want to do and this location fit the bill perfectly. When my agent informed me it was for sale I jumped on it right away.

Randall Crum purchased this condo in 2016

Why Randall Crum chose Gatlinburg

Location, location, location!! It is so convenient to everything in the downtown area.

What makes this condo unique

You can take the elevator to the first floor then the stairwell down to a lane which will connect you with either Reagan Drive or Airport Road which will put you at the convention center in less than 10 minutes and pretty much all the other attractions the area has to offer as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo was perfect for a little mountain getaway. It was just a short walk from the main parkway, but it was far enough away to give you the sense of nature that you are looking for in the smokey mountains. We even saw a few bears! It was a very cool experience

Very nice location for visiting Gatlinburg

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend in this unit in Gatlinburg. The walk to the downtown strip had a lot of stairs going down (and particularly going back up when you were tired!), but it was not a bad walk back and forth. The amenities in the condo were fine, and the location was quiet.

Very cute little rental close to everything

  • 4 of 5

Even though the condo is on the small size, it is within walking distance to downtown. Will say the toilet is not mad for tall people, it sits very low so it was amusing when my husband had to go to the bathroom, he is 6.5 tall. I am very short so I had no complaints. This a perfect condo for a couple but not for a family. People working lobby were very friendly and gave us tips on where to go and places to eat. There is lot of places that will deliver food, so no worries there.

Owner's Response: Dear Dawn, Thank you very much for staying at my Laurel Inn unit. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I do have plans to change out the toilet in the vanity soon and I plan to address that height issue. I am glad you enjoyed the conveniences of being downtown as do I. Please visit again sometime. Sincerely, Randall

Perfect for two

  • 4 of 5

Smaller than I expected, but just perfect for 2. My husband and I enjoyed the walk to the strip for supper each night. Unfortunately I assumed the pool would not be open yet, so we didn't take advantage of that amenity. Overall a great little condo.

this condo's repairman makes me feel like Bob Villa

  • 2 of 5

Pictures deceiving. Very small. Very run-down. Needed a hoist to get up from couch, but a platform to get in the bed. Jacuzzi took up a major portion of an already small bedroom. Bathroom very outdated, but water was hot. Refrigerator sounds like a small airplane. Kitchen almost non-existent. No paper products. Remote control did not work, or needed batteries.

There has been no monies spent on upkeep in years...

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at my condo. I am sorry that you did not enjoy it. I figured the low price you received would compensate for the unit being dated. I do not argue most of the points you make, especially that the refrigerator is loud. As best I can tell it is the original one and that makes it about 30 years old. It keeps food crisp and cold though and I am not one to just replace things that aren't broken. The sofa is not that old and I did not notice that it sags any more than most sofa sleepers do. I stayed there two weeks ago and it was perfectly comfortable to sit on. The bed does sit high because it is an almost new, extra thick pillow top mattress. I find it to be incredibly comfortable. The whirlpool tub, which many people enjoy, does indeed take up a good part of the bedroom. The kitchen is incredibly small with a 2 burner stove top, full size refrigerator-freezer, microwave, single sink and no dish washer. For the record, I do include a diagram of the unit in the photos section of the listing because I do not want to "deceive" anyone about its size. The photos taken were done from my I-Phone a little over a year ago with no special attachments to make the rooms look any larger than what they are. Again, no deception on my part. I do plan to renovate the bathroom and kitchen at some point (that is the reason I have not replaced the original refrigerator) but, until then, I will continue to offer it for a reasonable rate. For others reading this, the unit is clean and provides decent accommodations at an affordable price in a convenient downtown location. If you are looking for a luxury condo, this is probably not the unit of choice for you. If you want clean, affordable and convenient then please, book and stay with me.

Very cozy, comfortable and walking distance to everything downtown!

Stayed with a friend for a couple days of Gatlinburg fun! Walking distance to all the shops and restaurants was the extra bonus. Didn’t even get in the car until we were ready to leave. The place had everything we needed for our short visit! Thanks for the stay!
