3-Bedroom 2-Bath Condo with the Best View you will find. Quiet and Restful
Please note: I just purchased this property and with the previous owner it had 52 5-Star reviews and 2 4-Star reviews. I would like to think it is better now than then, but I want you to understand why there are no reviews yet.
Conveniently located above downtown Gatlinburg, this mountain vacation condo has one of the most breathtaking elevated views of the Smoky Mountains and Ober Gatlinburg's ski slopes and tubing run. It Sleeps up to a maximum of 6 guests with two downstairs bedrooms, one with Queen size bed and one with twin beds, and a queen bed in the loft. All views are no less than spectacular from every window. The size of the unit is 946 square feet which is the largest condo unit in The Summit. This unit is on the 3rd floor which limits noise from other guests. The manager tells me she rarely has noise complaints from guests on the 3rd floor. Also the view is unforgettable. Note: This unit is on the third floor and there is no elevator. If you have mobility issues please note this. If not, get ready for an Unforgettable View.
The view from the cabin is great both day and night, especially in the winter. We have a good view of the ski slopes and the tubing runs in Ober Gatlinberg at night on the right and on the left you see the lights of Gatlinburg. In between you have Mt LeConte and several other mountain chains. I have set and looked at these for hours. For me three things led me to buy this condo, VIEW, comfort, location.
The Summit amenities includes hot tubs, indoor and outdoor pools, playground, and the game room and coin operated laundry. The condo has a small but well equipped kitchen with what is needed for preparing meals and eating. The dining table seats 4.
You can get to the condo from Pigeon Forge without going through downtown Gatlinburg. By using the bypass you avoid the congestion. We have traveled from Stoplight #8 in Pigeon Forge (the road to Dollywood and Splash Country) to the condo in less than 25 minutes using the bypass. From the condo going down to Gatlinburg takes less than 15 minutes. You can be in the National Park in a little over 20 minutes. To allow you to stay in contact the cabin has premium internet. This is much faster than the standard supplied by Summit.

About David Chamberlin
Pam and I are both retired and travel extensively throughout the world. Still we enjoy several weeks each year in the Smoky Mountains. We especially enjoy the festivals at Dollywood each year. For 7 years we have owned and rented 2 cabins in Pigeon Forge. We decided it was time for a change so we sold the cabins and bought this condo. I will miss the view from our Unforgettable View Cabin, but the view from the condo is actually far superior and I look forward to enjoying that. Also, we are discovering a number of restaurants in Gatlinburg that we enjoy.
David Chamberlin purchased this Condo in 2017
Why David Chamberlin chose Gatlinburg
VIEW, VIEW and View. You will find none better in my opinion. Comfort is very important to me. The condo has all I need. I am paying for a private internet service because the standard internet provided by Summit is not very good per a number of reviews I have read. I also like that the condo can be reached without driving through downtown Gatlinburg. I prefer a quiet unit without noise from neighbors. I talked with guests as well as the Summit manager and they both said the third floor is much quieter than floors one and two. There is no elevator in the building so you have about 22 steps to walk up. I know this is inconvenient for some and I understand. For me I appreciate the added exercise. At my age , I need it. The Summit is located on the top of the mountain which means slow driving up hillls and around curves. The roads are very good, but you have to drive up the mountain. I am 70 and in good health so these items do not bother me and the view is well worth the effot .
What makes this Condo unique
It is like being on top of the world. Views are good both day and night. It is accessable by the bypass or through Gatlinburg. There are 2 pools, one indoor and one outdoor. There is a play area with swings and a slide for the children and a game room with arcade machines.

Great View, Nice Place
A few things take away from a 5-star rating. The kitchen stove needs replaced, it looks like the original stove and did not work well. The electric top components were wobbly and not level and the oven handle got really hot when using the oven. We like to cook as opposed to eating out so this was a big deal. The owner's suite shower curtain needs to be laundered as well.
The view was great. One takeaway was the awnings used to cover all the balconies. There were a few thunderstorms with strong winds and the awnings were extremely loud, loud enough to wake everyone in the middle of the night. All the beds and furniture were comfortable. We didn't use the fireplace, but wood and matches were waiting if we had wanted to. Everything was stocked well. One of the nicest places we've stayed in around the Pigeon Forge/Galtinburg area.
We have a new stove purchased and installation scheduled. Though no one has complained about the stove previously, I agree it is old and we were planning to replace it. The night mentioned with the loud rain passed through Nashville the night before and rain drops hitting my windows awoke me and I am a sound sleeper. Not sure much can be done about that.
Charming, family friendly condo with amazing views!
I loved this condo - it was perfect for my family of 4. The location is great and the views are spectacular. It had everything we needed and ample space for everyone. We enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tubs on the property. I loved being able to get away from the hustle and bustle of town, but still being close to town and Ober Gatlinburg. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!
what more can i say that the other reviews have not said,this place has everything a couple or a family may need,all the way down to games to play to a cozy blanket on your couch! we loved the condo and had a very nice stay there,cannot wait to go again.i will book the same place because there is no reason to look anywhere else.go enjoy your stay!!
View breath taking, coziest condo ever!!!
My guest and I will talk about the condo and our experience in Gatlinburg, TN for a lifetime. Thanks!
Incredible views of the mountains!
We had a great stay at the cabin. It was clean and neat. It fitted our needs perfectly. It was snowing when we got there. The next morning the view of the snow on the mountains was gorgeous. We enjoyed watching people ski down the slopes at Ober. The roads going down the mountain were not icy at all. We will definitely come back!
Perfect Family Condo with Amazing Views!!
Our family really enjoyed the Condo, it was spacious and clean. Every bed was comfortable and the wood burning fireplace was perfect for the snow we were excited to see! The best part was the view!! To the left was downtown Gatlinburg/Space Needle and to the right was Ober Gatlinburg where we could enjoy watching everyone ski while the lights on the ski lift were on 24/7. We encountered bears twice during our stay on the way up the mountain, and our boys enjoyed swimming indoor after a long day of skiing at Ober. It was great to relax in the Condo after spending hours enjoying the sites daily. And, it was by far the best view we've ever had after spending many vacations here before!
Close to Ober Gatlinburg for snow tubing, skiing, and Ice skating. A short drive to the nations most popular National Park in The Great Smoky Mountains A short drive to Dollywood and Splash Country.
