'WOOD DUCK INN' LAKEFRONT-PRIVATE DOCK, HUGE DECK-NORRIS LAKE

Andersonville House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy your stay at this peaceful, gently sloping lakefront property on quiet Mill Creek Cove just around the point from the remodeled Waterside (formerly Andersonville) Marina which is located just 7.5 miles northeast on Highway #61 from exit #122 on I-75. Norris Lake, with its 34,000 acres of blue-green pristine waters, spans more than 800 miles of shoreline.

The single-level 35+ year-old rustic house has a cozy den w/ceiling fan, a stone wood-burning fireplace (wood not provided), a sofa bed that sleeps two plus a day bed with a trundle that sleeps another two. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and antique furniture with a full bath beside it. One room with an antique double bed is on the lakeside and has a view of the lake; the third bedroom also has an antique double bed and a small windowseat with a cot sized mattress. There is a full bath between these two bedrooms. A large paved driveway in front of the house has room for several cars and boat trailers. The single car garage is not available.

In addition to a full-service kitchen and a separate laundry room, there is a bright, large sunroom facing the lake with a huge table (seats 10) for those fantastic family meals. Both the den and the sunroom open onto a large deck one-third of which is covered and has a porch swing, a second swing, hooks for a baby swing, and a ceiling fan. A stone-lined dirt path leads through the wooded back yard to a private dock with a ladder, a large umbrella for shade, and boat or wave-runner tie-off cletes. By September, the water has usually gone down enough that the dock is not floating. The water is usually high enough to float the dock again by April 1st. Please feel free to call or email to find out the dock situation if your vacation plans are for the late summer or early spring.

Waterside Marina, a very short walk though not visible from the house or dock, has a restaurant and small store. Although the Marina does not accommodate public boat launching, they do allow our renters to launch and drive around to our dock. However, you must park your vehicle and trailer back in our driveway. There is enough paved driveway space to park 3 trucks with trailers. The closest full service grocery store is only five miles away and there are a variety of restaurants and a Super Walmart near the interstate exit only seven miles away. Although many of the conveniences are within a few miles, the area is peaceful, wooded, and within a quiet, friendly neighborhood that has been established for over 30 years.

The house is 5 miles from Big Ridge State Park, 7 miles from Norris Dam State Park, and 6 miles from The Museum of Appalachia. Both parks offer wonderful activities including covered picnic areas, volleyball, softball, tennis courts, hiking trails, and a variety of playgrounds. The Chuck Swan Wildlife Management Area, a short boat ride from the house, is an undisturbed 25,000 acre wildlife preserve offering seasonal licensed hunting, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, mountain bike riding, wildlife observation and photography. There are private Horseback Riding businesses and ATV rentals and trails nearby also.

The 'Wood Duck Inn' is extremely accommodating to family gatherings or small groups and is a short drive from Knoxville.

About Martie Wood

We live in Knoxville and have two dogs. Our grown children also live in Knoxville. We have celebrated many birthdays, holidays, and gatherings at our lakehouse.

Martie Wood purchased this house in 1989

Why Martie Wood chose Andersonville

We love Norris Lake and have always taken our family there when we have had the chance. We searched for several years for a place on the lake that was fairly level and a short drive from Knoxville, and we found it.

What makes this house unique

We mainly enjoy the peacefulness of being on the cove, so close to the Marina but not impacted by it. When people go out of the Marina, they usually go the opposite direction from where we are, so our cove is peaceful. Also, the sunset there is beautiful and most of our excellent neighbors are there year round making it a very safe place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mrs. Wood:



I want to thank you for such a nice time at your lake house again. We always enjoy renting your home. It is so peaceful to have breakfast on your deck while watching all of the water fowl. You have a great little piece of heaven. I do not know which season I enjoy the most while staying at your lake house!! I look forward to our next vacation there.

Wonderful Time!!

  • 5 of 5
The house is a charming older home that has great flow that works out wonderfully when having to entertain a larger crowd! We had such a great time here, my husband and I and 3 teenagers spent a week here and we all had so much fun, the kids kept themselves entertained by spending most of their time in the paddle boat which was provided by the owners and blow up rafts that were mostly kept tied up to the sides of the dock. The views of the lake were amazing from the large deck and dock! The wooded property is beautiful, we saw a large deer that would walk by daily and a pretty big sized turtle that lives in the back yard! The lake cove for this home is quiet and peaceful, without heavy traffic from boaters and other swimmers and didn't hear a peep from the neighbors except for a friendly hello every now and then. I just cant say enough about The Wood Duck Inn...it was lovely, peaceful, clean and we came away with precious memories that will be cherished always!! :) You won't be disappointed, I promise!

Tranquility

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at wood duck inn the last week of July 2012. We really enjoyed our stay. The dock was perfect, the lake was absolutely beautiful and the home was comfy and family friendly. The deck on the home is way under rated! The deck over looked the lake and was soo incredibly nice. The owners really made us feel welcomed. The area the home is in was so peaceful. No noisy distractions. We even saw deer! We will most definalely be back.

Wood Duck Inn

  • 5 of 5
My family had an excellent time at the lake. The deck is absolutely fabulous. This was the most well supplied houses we've rented over the last 20 years. Our only complaint was the weather, which no one has any control over! But even that was fast-moving and short lived interruptions. We would definitely consider coming back again.

Owner's Response: I love it when families come to our house and have some good down time together. Nothing like sitting on the deck watching the sunset to bring out the best in people.

Peaceful vacation, AWESOME Lakeview

  • 5 of 5
Thanks for a great vacation at your home on Norris Lake! It's spacious, yet cozy. Everything provided, just like "home". We brought our own boat and it the dock was perfect for lounging in the sun and a little fishing too! We will definitely visit again for some more of those awesome sunsets!

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at your lake house for our 6th anniversary. It was so nice to have our own private dock! The sunroom and the deck were my two favorite places at the house. I sat on the porch swing every morning and read while looking out at the lake. It was beautiful! The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for a week’s worth of cooking and grilling (although we did enjoy a couple meals at Waterside Marina). Since we had the dock, my husband was able to bring the fishing boat and had several successful fishing trips around Norris Lake. Also, since we had two more bedrooms, we were able to invite some friends to stay with us for a couple nights. Our week at the Wood Duck Inn was great and we will definitely be back this summer!

Relaxing time at Wood Duck Inn

  • 5 of 5
Our stays at the relaxing, down-home-like Wood's" Wood Duck Inn" cabin on Norris Lake in TN have consistently been times we cherish and remember with family, friends, lake activities. Swinging in the porch swing on their airy porch with views of the lake is a spot anyone can enjoy hours regardless of the weather. Over the years, we have enjoyed this cabin in every season and every state of health. Some trips are spent boating, swimming in the lake and laughing on the dock, others rocking in the rockers on the fabulous porch and reading a good book or sharing family stories. We always sleep so well and eat too well! at the Wood's lake cabin. The owners are such honest fine people and quickly responsive, just a phone call away, to any unexpected needs. If you want to travel back to slower, simpler days and be surrounded by the green hills and clean Norris Lake, the Wood's cabin is the place to go.

Owner's Response: Ahh, that just says it all, doesn't it? We all need this, a slower time to be with people that matter to us and just rock.
