On cool eves, switch on the gas fireplace, brew a pot of joe, and plop on the living room sofas for a cozy chat. Better yet, head outdoors to the steamy hot tub to soothe tired muscles from the day’s hike in the national park or gather the kiddos for s’mores around the crackling firepit. And for those looking for a little more excitement, play games in the rec spaces that boast air hockey, pool, a flatscreen Multicade with classics (like Pac-Man and Galaga), Pop-A-Shot Basketball, poker, and mini foosball!

Inviting and spacious, the living room at Summit Castle will enchant as the Great Smoky Mountains stream through the massive windows from floor to high ceiling. Once able to look away from the mountain majesty, the grand stone (gas) fireplace will certainly catch your eye, followed by the plump sofas and lovely cabin touches. Unwind with entertainment on the big screen TV, a favorite read by the toasty fire, or a chat with a glass of wine in the evenings. It’s also a great space to gather everyone in the mornings to discuss the day’s plan for fun in town or the national park.
Step between the log posts and into the fully equipped double kitchen — featuring 2 full-size refrigerators, 2 ovens, 2 microwaves, 2 dishwashers, 2 sinks, 2 toasters, plus a Keurig and a coffeepot!

Sit down for meals together in the dining area just off the kitchen, which boasts a 9-foot, picnic-table-style log table plus a round one to match with bench seating. With the additional 6 kitchen bar stools and outdoor dining table for 6 just through the door, everyone can eat and chat comfortably. Aside from meals, the dining area is perfect for playing board or card games brought from home or bought in town, setting out arts and crafts for the kids, checking emails, editing photos, or finally starting your blog with a piece on your awesome experience at Summit Castle!
It’s game time at the cabin — and Summit Castle delivers with multiple rec spaces! Head upstairs to the loft for a pool table party or exciting rounds of poker. Here, you can also take a closer look at the castle tower with terrific Smoky Mountain views and unwind on the futon with entertainment on the mounted big screen TV.
And just down the way awaits a sitting room with captivating mountain scenes all around, a flatscreen TV, and a desk space. It’s a nice area to hold meetings or escape for a little quiet. Plus, it can expand into another space with another futon and a coffee table that doubles as a fun foosball field!
Downstairs, shoot hoops with the Pop-A-Shot Basketball arcade game, beat the highest scores of classics, like Frogger, Pac-Man, and Galaga, on the flatscreen Multicade, and challenge friends to air hockey matches! There’s even a kitchenette with a full-size refrigerator to keep snacks and drinks close while you play.
Movie night is every night at Summit Castle — with a big screen TV and plush theater-style seating in the theater room! Pass around bowls of buttery popcorn, grab a pillow from your room, plant your favorite soda pop in the drink holder, and settle in for action, comedy, romance, thrills, and drama on the big screen. There are also a few floor chairs for extra seating the kids and kids at heart will appreciate.
