The Summit On Bluff Mountain


The Summit on Bluff Mountain is a luxury, very high end development located off Waldens Creek Road in the Pigeon Forge/Bluff Mountain area. The development has a focus on unique architecture for the permanent, second, and vacation homes located within the subdivision.

The development was started around 2006 and has seen quite a few luxury homes built since then. Lot sales were very strong at the boom of the market, but dropped off significantly in 2008 and 2009. The Summit on Bluff Mountain created a very large marketing campaign around the end of October 2009 to take in the advantage of the fall leaf season. Several incentives for the purchase of property have been offered within the development including a free Jeep Wrangler when purchasing a lot. The development was created by Gary Fields (also the developer of Cedar Falls) and they pride themselves as being a "one stop shop" where you can buy a lot, go to their design center, create a set of blueprints, and have a house plan within a week. The development has a large sales center located just as you enter the development on the right. More recently, several homes have been built by Big City Construction. In 2014 and 2015 construction has started to pick back up and new custom luxury residences are being built.

General Price Range

Prices within the development vary tremendously depending on whether it is a foreclosure, short sale, or regular sale. Originally lot prices ranged from $150,000 to the high $500,000's. Currently lots are priced well below their initial offering prices. Homes within the development are typically $500,000 and up with several over $1 million. There has been a foreclosure sale as low as $437,000 (2931 Summit Trails Drive).

Positive Aspects
  • Excellent views
  • Convenient to Pigeon Forge
  • Community Lookout Pavillion
  • Luxury properties with unique architecture.
  • A couple homes and lots have foreclosed, bringing prices into a more affordable range for some buyers.
  • Restrictions to protect your investment.
  • Extravagant entrance with cascading stone waterfall.
  • Somewhat large lot sizes offer space between the properties
  • Unobstructed long range mountain views deep into the Smoky Mountains National Park
  • Now available for use as overnight rental cabins (this could be a positive aspect depending on your perspective). The restrictions previously did not allow overnight rental cabin use.
  • Located to the North (up the mountain) from the development is a large tract of undeveloped land which covers thousands of acres of undisturbed wilderness.

Negative Aspects

  • The price of some lots alone are higher than some cabins in neighboring subdivisions "Bluff Mountain Acres" and "Laughing Pines".
  • The roads are paved in a very good manner and wide, but some of the roads have long gradual inclines and some sharp curves.
  • Some lots are steep, but the majority are gradually sloping, rolling, or level ridgetops.


Things To Look For

  • There are a couple lots on a creek with a small cascading waterfall.
  • Access is also available from Bluff Mountain Road.
