My husband, I and our two teenage sons spent the Christmas week (Dec. 19-26, 2009) in this condo. All four of us left Gatlinburg very satisfied (and those who travel with teenagers know what I mean…).
Pros: 1) Extremely nice and promptly responding hostess. Thank you, Lisa! 2) Reasonable price. 3) Perfect location – on top of a hill next to the main street, providing all the privacy needed for a vacation while being within walking distance from the main attractions. For example, the Ripley’s are only within five to ten minutes walk and save you the trouble to find a parking spot which could be a challenge during holidays. 4) Two large, separate, enclosed balconies with a fabulous view. From the balcony, one can hear the soothing murmur of a nearby creek. 5) A separate TV set in each room with cable access and about 20 channels to choose from. 6) Wireless Internet access. 7) Some owners would advertise their condo as sleeping four people comfortably but when you arrive it turns out your teenage kids have to sleep in one bed… Not in this condo! It has two separate beds in the second bedroom.
Cons: No cons! Absolutely great condo! Highly recommend!
While in Gatlinburg, we recommend to visit: Cirque de Chine, Dixie Stampede, Ripley's Aquarium, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (one our drive, but if you travel with teenagers “go carts” type of experience might not be appealing any more).
