Guestbook comments from the owner

It is the first place we have rented that I would love to rent again. We truly enjoyed our stay. The dock is fantastic....even with the rain, I was able to sit outside under the gazebo while my family fished from the bottom level. The cove and lake are beautiful! The house was very comfortable and the game room very fun.

Loved this home! The view from the lake is amazing from the balconies! Kitchen well supplied!

  • 5 of 5
The owner was a joy to work with in his quick responses! The home was so well equipped and the views of the lake were breathtaking from the balconies. The bunk room downstairs is ideal for children of all ages! Ping pong table, basketball net game, and even toys available for toddlers. Kitchen had all the necessary equipment for providing meals for large groups. Cell service was difficult at times but landline is available for use. Renting a pontoon boat and cruising Norris Lake was a highlight. Of course the weather was ideal all weekend which added to the enjoyment. Thank You, Bill, for the fond memories.

This is our 2nd time staying here and once again we were NOT disappointed! Kids love the double decker dock to jump off and we love the location, very little boat traffic in a nice deep cove. We will definitely be back again next year !

family review

  • 5 of 5
This house was a great location. it was set in a cove and close to the lake where you could tube and ski. It was also close to the marina. The house looked just like the picture and was described very well. There is a lot of sleeping space as they state and great recreational/entertaining items (games, ping pong). It is a long, steep trip down to the dock, but all of the houses looked that way. Definitely a workout. We had 3 families with 6 adults and 8 children. All of us said we would return and that we enjoyed the trip. We LOVED the dock. Our kids jumped off the top deck for hours! The owners were available or the neighbor was available for the time we were there.

Very pleased with the house and the house. Will be back for sure. The only problem we had was the refrigerator would not keep the food cold. Highly recommend it either be fixed or replaced. Also if possible get a better connection to the internet. WIFI signal was very weak.

Owner's Response: Thanks for sharing your thoughts. The refrigerator repairman is scheduled for tomorrow. Regarding the WiFi, given our geography we are limited to satellite internet service. It is much slower than what we all are used to in the city. (Note: this review is being posted from the lake and via the internet service available).

Enjoyable family gathering

  • 5 of 5
This home was the perfect solution for our 3 families that met in TN over the summer. We were traveling with our Mom who has Parkinson's and wheelchair bound. We were skeptical but took a leap that this home would accommodate our needs. It exceeded our expectations. My Mom was able to see every part if the house without limits... From her 6 grandchildren who lived down in the bunk room playing air hockey and video games to joining us on the dock for swimming and fun. The house was clean and had EVERYTHING we needed. We contacted the owner prior to our rental to see if we could rent a shower bench for my Mom so we wouldn't have to travel with one....instead he found one and purchased it. It was there the day we showed up. Thanks Bill for your hospitality. We made great memories that week and hope to be back next year.

Located in a ridge and valley region, Norris Lake abounds in secluded coves. Recreational use of the reservoir exceeds that of any other tributary lake. Lake Norris is a great place for fishing, boating, swimming, and other water sports. Nestled between East Tennessee ridges, Norris Lake points the way to Cumberland Gap and the historic wilderness trail marked by Daniel Boone. With its clear deep water, it produces excellent catches of rock fish, walleye, and bass, as well as the usual species found in other area lakes. June through September night fishing for small mouth bass, croppie, white bass and walleye is a popular activity. Two small wild areas on Norris Lake provide visitors with
