Overview

La Follette House Rental Photos and Description

Lake Front House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 13-15)

Hello and welcome to the Escape Klaus. We are the Klaus', and this is our custom lakefront escape. The Escape Klaus was built to provide a “base” with which to build up lasting family memories. We plan to leave the house in our family for future generations. We hope you find an “atypical” rental that feels more like your own home. We would love for you to come back over the years and share our house right on the lake - in the woods - in the mountains - a perfect way to disconnect from the world and re-connect with your family and friends.

What is Unique about the Escape Klaus?

• Location, Location, Location! Powder Mill is a quiet cove just north of Springs Dock

• Close to town yet just north of the busy action on the water. Best of both!

• Only 10 Minutes to Springs Dock by boat or car

• Custom Design – 18 ft 'wall of windows' faces east to catch 24/7 lake views!

• Year round water lets you enjoy your beautiful private 2 slip covered dock.

• SMOOTH Concrete Path all the way to the lake - only a few steps down to the dock

• East exposure means sun drenched mornings, moon lit nights, and smooth protected water!

• Our house is located in a deep water cove – like living on a dead end road -low boat traffic!

• Huge 2 Story Trex Deck/Railings lets you enjoy a splinter free vacation

• 2-Slip Covered Dock means no more running down to cover your boats if it rains!

• Smooth Water + Low Boat Traffic are perfect for …

- Sun Bathing on the Dock – dock is quiet and relaxing.

- Floating in the lake (you too can be a human buoy wearing your life jacket like a diaper!).

- Teaching little ones to enjoy water sports – less waves/ boat traffic to cause anxiety.

- Ski out of the cove – no wasted time/gas boating 5 miles away!

- Great Fishing – Powder Mill Hollow is well known among the locals.

• Upper/Lower Great Rooms open directly to the screened porches w/large glass doors - go ahead and open up the house to lake breezes!

• Upper Great Room has a huge vaulted ceiling w/ a unique European 'kiva' Fireplace

• Lower Level TV Room has a 106' HDTV(That's 4x8ft big!) - Awesome for games and movies!

• Lower Level Great Room has a Kitchenette w/wet bar, m/wave, fridge, ice maker, and Combo Game Table(pool/ping-pong/air hockey)

• 'Identical' Upper/Lower Master Bedrooms directly access the Upper/Lower Screened porches

• Bedroom #3(Queen) has a door directly into upper master bedroom – perfect for small children.

• Lower Bedroom #4(Queen + Full Bunk + Twin) sleeps up to 7 – perfect for all the kids.

• Every Room has its own private attached full bath

• Outside shower to rinse off before coming inside + inside “wet room” to let stuff dry out.

• Unique Cork Flooring upstairs and stained concrete downstairs

About Pam and Ted Klaus

Hello - here are all the Klaus' in one photo a rare find!- Pam and Ted( 29),Erik(18),Sara Jane(15), and Emma Jo(11). Pam does all the real work & Ted is a product development engineer for Honda. 'BK'(before kids), we lived and worked for 2 years in Japan, prior to settling down in Marysville, Ohio.

Pam and Ted Klaus purchased this house in 2008

Why Pam and Ted Klaus chose La Follette

We fell in love with Norris Lake after our first visit in 2006. We love the simple beauty of the area, the stillness of 'our' little cove - Powder Mill, and the never ending possibilities that Norris Lake offers to us and to our family. Already we have re-connected with life as a result of building this home away from home! We invite you to build some memories at the Escape Klaus!

We built this house from scratch. Ted did all the legwork - with a wonderful custom plan courtesy of Richard Hlava (Ted's cousin) and the help of a local draftsman, we literally designed this house for us and our guests! From January of 2007 to March of 2009 we bought the land, planned the house, found our builder - Danny Russell, and completed all the details that go into a custom home - we hope you enjoy our house that can only hope to rival the natural beauty of the setting. We choose to build in powder mill based on the location on the lake. Our location is just off the main lake channel on a sheltered East-West Cove. The water in this cove is always smooth. Since the cove dead ends - you do not get all the boat traffic and waves - you can really relax down on the dock. Since the house faces east - even though we are nestled in the woods - you awake to glorious bright sunrises flooding the house with natural light. Powder Mill Cove is home to one of the oldest settlements on the Lake - Chapman Village. We think those early folks picked the perfect spot!!

What makes this house unique

True relaxation..letting go..re-connecting with family and friends....hearing the kids laugh and giggle..catching up on a great book ...boating...fishing....exploring all the local marinas - each one with a different feel. Meeting folks from all over that stay at or live on Norris.

Close by you can enjoy Cumberland Gap National Park, Cumberland Falls, Knoxville, and the Smokies. All of this is best enjoyed by 2 or more families - what a way to enjoy life!

WE LOVED IT…!!

  • 5 of 5
Escape Klaus was perfect. I came here with about 10 of my buddies for a re-union/bachelor weekend and it was perfect. The access to the lake is great, not a busy location with boats and perfect for swimming and catching some sun. The house was even better than the pictures. Awesome kitchen that is well stocked with cooking supplies. Awesome wrap around decks with great views. Everyone slept comfortably. Not too close to the neighbors, but close enough if you need something. I would definitely come back and would also recommend this place to anyone looking for a great get away.

Our planned fall break camping trip was a total washout. I had to find a dry alternative for 4 adults, 1 sullen teenager and 5 elementary aged children with little notice. Ted was awesome to work with. The house was amazing. The bunk room was perfect for the little kids. The game room and screening room kept everyone entertained (while it poured rain). When it was clear it was nice to fish a little from the dock. The location on the ridge makes walking down to and up from the dock a fitness opportunity (read not for the elderly or infirm). All and all a great fall break even with the constant threat of flooding (so happy we weren't in a tent)! We will be back.

My friends and I booked this place as an end to the semester getaway. We weren't disappointed the house is in great shape and shows like a dream home. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family. Ted was a great host and very helpful with anything we needed.

House: great setting, secluded, perfect way to get away from busy life and just relax. Great sized bedrooms and living spaces.

Amenities: we watched Christmas movies on the giant screen in the entertainment room, spent a ton of time around the incredible fire place on main level, and particularly enjoyed the views from kitchen/dining area every morning with breakfast as mist and fog hovered over the water.

Owners: responsive, accessible and happy to answer questions.

Overall: our family had a great time. Would definitely come back. If you are looking to stay plugged into the world, this isnt the place. If you are truly looking to get away, relax and enjoy the lake - its perfect!

PS - lots of steps and hills. If you arent comfortable with this, it wont work for you. If you are (like our family was) - its awesome!

Great time at Escape Klaus

  • 5 of 5
This was a beautiful, as described, lake house. Beautiful house, beautiful location. We spent a week and several days we just relaxed at the house or went out on the lake. All the amenities were as-described, and the house was beautiful, restful and fun! We loved the ping-pong table! The walk to the lake is steep, as other reviewers have noted, but our youngest was 4 and did fine.

Owner's Response: Carly,

Thanks for staying with us at the Escape Klaus! We are glad you and your family could relax and "escape" for a while. Lake Norris is well know for its "deep water channels" - wish it were not so, but that translates to hills above the water!
