“Great view, clean, nice accomodation”
Reviewed 12 September 2008

Pluses

1. Very very clean accomodation
2. Nice family get away. Kitchen was very well equipped
3. There was a whirlpool in the bedroom. It seemed as bit rusty but its OK.
4. Excellent...really excellent view from the balcony.
5. Close to Gatlinburg downtown (around 2.0 miles)

Minus
1. Internet connection not available in individual rooms
2. Location was confusing - there was no sign board and the GPS / Google/ Map quest all indicated incorrectly.
3. Being a hilly road, expect a few more lights to be set up along the road.

Although being bordered by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has it's advantages, it also has it's disadvantages.
Thru federal law we cannot put any advertisement within the park boundries.
We apologize for any inconvience and hope that you'll return to The Highlands on your next visit to the Gatlinburg area.
Thank you and have a great day.

This was our first summer vacation staying at the Highlands, recommended to me by a friend who also stayed there recently. The condo itself was clean, roomy, comfortable,very nicely decorated.A full size washer and dryer in the unit was much appreciated.We had a large balcony with comfortable furniture that extended from the living room to the master bedroom with a beautiful view of the mountains overlooking Gatlinberg. Beautiful view both day and night with the lights in the distance. Was wonderful to have breakfast soaking in the morning view. Quiet - away from the hustle and bustle.A short drive down the mountain to the Smoky Mountain Natl Park Visitor Center and also to the Gatlinberg shopping area. What we liked best were seeing an occasional bear in this area and other wildlife, also enjoying the hot tub which also has a beautiful mountain view. The staff was very helpful and friendly.We spoke to other families there who commented to us that they have stayed there year after year. Would highly recommend as the perfect family getaway! We'll be back!

OVERALL: If you're trying to enjoy a vacation away from the madness of downtown Gatlinburg, this is the place for you. It is far away from traffic and noise, the view is beyond words. We stayed in the 400 numbered condos, which I recommend because there's a place to sit beyond your patio.

STAFF: We got lost twice on the way to the condo (DON'T USE YAHOO, GOOGLE OR MAPQUEST, just stop at a gas station) but Patrick at the front desk was more than happy to explain the best way to get there.
After that, we didn't see him or need any staff again until it was time to check out. Everything worked, was clean and organized, we made full use of the kitchen (eating out everyday can be expensive).

ISSUE: My only gripe, which was really inconsequential, was that the featherbed had a stain on it, but the front desk was more than happy to have it cleaned.

My wife and I went this past Sept. with her mom and dad, well we actually split the difference of the room. Let me tell you it is well worth the price of admission. Especially in the morning when the sun rises it comes thru the front sliding glass windows and it brighten and warms the whole place up, and if you sit at the bar in the kitchen you can watch both the sun rise and set both are just heaven on earth, and the view of the mountains are just as beautiful especially in the morning when the sun is coming up over them. The only gripe I had was that our condo was next to the end so when we either went some where or had to go down stairs we had to walk to the other end to use either the steps or elevator, I think they need another set of atleast steps on the other end. But it is the most beutiful place I have ever stayed at and I am looking forward to this Sept. when we are planning to return, but one onething is going to be different we are going to have our own condo. And the pictures on the websites just do not due the place justice you just have to experience yourself to see the beauty.

Highland condos offer the best view of the mountains and Gatlinburg below. The people at the front office are very polite and the service is prompt. We stayed at 701 and the condo is neat and clean with ample space for 4 adults and a 2 year old.
I have to mention that the town of Gatlinburg is so understated. We loved the town and the holiday spirit in this small town is unbeatable.Don't forgot to go "The Pantry House" for breakfast - one of the best breakfast places we have ever been to. There are other interesting stores like the chocolate shop, fudgery, specialty popcorn stores, coffee shops etc. It was pleasant to notice that the typical chain stores were absent. A perfect getaway in a perfect place.

As everyone comments, the views of the mountains and Mount Le Conte can't be beat. You also are overlooking Gatlinburg and can see the lights of the city at night, as well as hear a little music from the town below. It's great. We always stay in the first building with no other buildings in front of us, so all we see are mountains. Ask about this when you call. We rent a one bedroom place for 2 of us. The unit is not overly big. There is a small kitchen, living room (with fireplace), a small bath and a bathroom with a whirlpool tub. The units are fairly nice, not luxurious, but nice and comfortable. The best part is the view and that's what keeps us coming back. Prices are also fairly reasonable. We have stayed here 3 of 4 trips.

The view was excellent. We stayed in 405 which is a one bedroom. It was a little small for 3 people but overall a very nice experience. The pools were nice and I loved the convenience of being on the by-pass. I didn't have to fight the Gatlinburg traffic. I would go back to the Highlands.
