On Top of Our LIst

I could go on and on using many words to describe this property, but I will simply say it will exceed anything you can imagine. The views, the atmosphere, and the tranquility. Close to tourist activities yet feels like its your own home. Every question I had was received with a quick response by the owner. The process was easy and will come back again and again.

We had the pleasure of staying here for 8 days over the Labor Day holiday. The view is breathtaking. We could see the labor day fireworks in Knoxville (40 miles away)! The house combines high end amenities with comfort. No other house in sight, so it is very private. If you are lucky you'll get a visit by a local bear. Have the camera ready. Bob and Debra are very helpful. They responded immediately to a few minor maintenance issues we encountered. Next time we stay here we will spend less time exploring the mountains and more time at the house!

Totally not worth it

  • 1 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this property in April, and it fell far, far short of our expectations, especially considering the price. The property was not very well maintained inside or out - we had several plumbing problems (master shower leaked extensively into the bathroom below it, at least two sinks would not drain). I'm not quite sure how a 'live-in' owner could have missed these issues. The pictures on the site are also old - the outdoor decks and patios have not been treated kindly by the weather. The VRBO listing has since been updated to reflect 'seasonally available' big ticket items, but at the time we booked we were led to believe there was a fully functioning hot tub, sauna, and gas grill. The sauna only turned on once for us and then stopped functioning, the hot tub was slimy and wouldn't go above ~80 degrees, and the gas grill turned out to be charcoal (with no coals available and a long trip back to town to get some). When we brought up the grill situation to the owner, he suggested that we go out and buy him a gas grill and put it together, and that he would reimburse us for the grill. I'm not sure about you, but someone else's chores are the last thing I would think about doing on my vacation, especially when I'm paying for the privilege. It's hard to believe that this is billed as a 'bucket list' property and receives so many good reviews. I'm sure the owner will have lots of say in response to this (we've already heard every excuse in the world about the conditions we encountered) but I've vowed to myself not to read anything else from him - every dealing we had made my blood pressure go up further and further and my head almost explode. The only good things I can say are: the property was as secluded as a person could ask for, and the views were really lovely. I wouldn't recommend this property to anyone.

Owner's Response: What Makes the World Go 'Round?

Have you realized that there are some people you can't please? No matter what you do or what you try or how nice you are to them. You just can't please everybody.

Every year at TOTW Spring opens up to the beginning of a new year. TOTW supports many changes, some based on previous occupants requests, and others based on standard maintenance, and upkeep preservation.

Initially this rental request was denied, based on timing. A telephone conversation took place between the parties. The renter insisted on renting and to bring a pet. The prospective renter was completely and totally apprised of the ongoing construction and preservation. The renter sounded sincere and verbalized... a vacation was really needed!

In an effort to accommodate the renter, all maintenance and considering the circumstances, a special price was arranged for the stay, including no charge for the pet!

Quite simply; the numerous excellent reviews and quality stays, plus TOTW's 100% cleanliness rating from the TN Department of Health speaks for itself!

There are many categories of people from all walks of life. They all choose a path... The vast majority of individuals, couples and families are fantastic!

Notwithstanding, a flip of the coin will also turn up others who are threating, disrespectful, and fabricators.

“In Him we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).

Glory to God for All Things

Great place to stay! We loved the property. The kitchen was stocked with pots and pans and spices, too. Some things we didn't even expect like the wine coolers. Very nice home. Get groceries before you come up because you won't want to go back down. It takes 25 minutes to go 3 miles. Very windy road! If you are driving and are afraid of windy roads and heights, get a different driver but still go. In almost every room of the house there is a place to enjoy. The decks and views are spectacular! We bonded and enjoyed every moment together as a family. We barbecued every night and watched the sunsets. The hot tub view was awesome and each day we played pool. Bring Cutter insecticide and flashlights in case you lose electricity. We did but didn't end up using the flashlights. Awesome home! Thank you, Dr. Bob!

Owner's Response: Laurel, Thank You for your kind words!!!

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!

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
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!
