Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 6, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
My family spent 5 fabulous days at this prime location in the Smokeys. We could see the top of the mountain in the distance as we traveled through Pigeon Forge and wondered how in the world we would ever get up there. The access road was easy to climb and the deer and wild turkeys we saw as we traveled the mountain road was nature at it's best! As we pulled in to the drive the sweeping view below took our breath away! We laughed about people who were paying for the sky wheel! No matter where you are in the house you have an amazing view. One of our favorite times was sitting at the dinner table while we enjoyed the lights below! We chose to dine each night at the house. The kitchen is fully equipped and we had no trouble finding what we needed.
The house has a wonderful layout with a bedroom and bath on each floor. The bedrooms are very large and accommodated the portacrib with room to spare. The beds were very comfortable. Best sleep I've ever had away from home. Although that could be partly attributed to the wine from the local winery!
I loved that this house was nicely decorated. We didn't feel like we were in a rental, but were staying with friends.
We were first concerned about making the trip down the mountain to sightsee, but the road was so easy that we made the trip down and up each day. I hope we can come and stay again next year.
The only problem we had was we were not aware of the garbage separation stipulations until we took the trash out. No problem for us though, we are recyclers! Made a first night adjustment and was glad to separate the trash for the rest of our stay.
Dr. Bob thank you for sharing this amazing property with others!

AMAZING!!

I highly recommend this home for anyone who is interested in vacationing in Gatlinburg Tennessee. My family and I attended Dr. Bob's home for the New Year and we all had a wonderful time. His home was so beautifully decorated for the holidays. We even had a Christmas tree in the living room, which made the holidays even more special.
He was available when I called with any questions regarding the drive up to the mountain, always friendly. The drive up the mountain was fairly easy, there was signs on the side of the road directing you to the top of the world views; follow that road which takes you to the front of the home. The home is fairly high on the mountain, but this home is definitely worth the drive. As you drive you get the see the town and can take amazing pictures.

The views in this home is incredible. You look down and are able to see the clouds, see the town, and soak in all the beautiful views.

The weather during my stay was perfect. We had some fog during the first day but eventually we were able to have perfect views. It even snowed on our last day, everyone was so excited to see snow.

I am definitely keeping this home saved for my next vacation to Tennessee!!
Thank you Dr. Bob for everything :]
Owner's Response: Over the years, we've rented to many guests from all over the globe.

"Top of the World" does have exceptional views that are one of a kind and ever-changing!

The privacy too is second to none! It is extremely important to us that our guests are comfortable and have an excellent Holiday.

Over the years, we've tried rental management company's... We only found one company whom we will recommend for overflow reservations; but decided our personal touch and private pampering is needed to really provide our travelers with an excellent Holiday.

You'll interface directly with the owners or our personal agent! Thank you for an excellent review, and we welcome you for a second stay!

Above and Beyond

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 26, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
Above and Beyond: They are probably the best three words to describe our visit.

First of all, the pictures DO NOT accurately reflect the total package here. There is no way that any pictures ever could. The view is above and beyond. There is nothing quite like sitting in the hot tub while looking down on clouds and the occasional helicopter. Just think, those poor souls are paying for a few moments of what you can "soak" in for days.

The house is above and beyond. It was very clean and well stocked. I expect that. I didn't expect to sit in the office, eat breakfast, lie in bed, or take a shower while looking out for scores of miles. The setting and the architecture combine for a slice of heaven.

My wife and I travel by VRBO frequently. Often times as we pass by other homes while approaching our rental, we moan, "Wow! Wish we were staing in that one." Not this time. I saw no place for which I would have traded, regardless of price.

I highly recommend this home for anyone needing to relax and recharge, desiring privacy, and yet wanting closeness to civilization for good dining and entertainment in nearby Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

Oh, one more above and beyond...the owner, Dr. Bob. Dr. Bob was delightful and informative during the reservation process. He and his home helped to ensure our 39th anniversary was special. Unfortunately, we had a personal emergency which required us to leave suddenly three days before our planned departure date. During this time of stress for us, Dr. Bob was extremely helpful, stayed in contact with us and even offered to let us return afterwards. His hospitality, friendliness, and helpfulness....all were above and beyond.

HGTV featured it. We had the opportunity to live it. Add it to your bucket list soon.

Owner's Response: George, "Thank you for your kind words"...

Top of the World is indeed a special place. It has always been our goal to provide an inviting, relaxing, and clean vacation spot.

The mountains of TN yield wonderful "Top of the World" memory's, spectacular views, and bring together all the pieces of a grand Holiday.

We are so glad you enjoyed your time on the mountain, and indeed look forward to your future stay.

Dr. Bob

Perfect Location for a Mountaintop Wedding

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
We enjoyed perfect weather for our Fall outdoor wedding ceremony on the helicopter pad at the adjoining Lazy Cricket property, so the "Top of the World" had a hard act to follow. TOTW proved to be the perfect setting for our reception. Our hosts, Dr. Bob and his wife, Debra, decorated the cabin beautifully for our celebration and made sure everything was clean and welcoming for family and guests. They made sure we had everything we needed for our wedding, reception, and our entire stay. If you want to be on top of a mountain, this is the place for you. The cabin is spacious and nicely appointed. Our two big challenges were locating light switches once the sun went down and trying to talk over the circulating air fan. We fell in love with the place and plan to visit TOTW again for a longer stay.
Owner's Response: Weddings are a very special time for all... Some arrive by helicopter and others drive, and yes we've had mountain hikers arrive and be married onsite.

We've been told "to be married with a backdrop of, The Great Smoky Mountains is like nothing else"...

To top this wedding off, Denise was extremely dynamic and absoutely wonderful to work with; she knew what she wanted and we did our best to meet her requests.

It was one or our most memorable Fall weddings...

Amazing Views

My family stayed here during our children's fall break from school. The views were absolutely spectacular. We saw deer and wild turkeys several days on our journey down the mountain. My two boys loved this place and did not want to leave. The owner was extremely nice and answered all my questions that I had and everything was ready when we arrived. If amazing views are what you are looking for than this is the place for you! It will not disappoint.
