We have been married 39 years and grew up in the area around Norris Lake. We always went to the lake for camping vacations when we were young so we know most of the great things the lake offers. We decided we were getting too old for sleeping on the ground in a tent and decided this was a much more comfortable way to "camp". Hot tub, swimming pool, nice comfortable queen size bed, etc.
We love the area, the lake and are very familiar with Norris Lake. We felt like it was a good value for the money.
Gorgeous view of the lake and marina from our unit. Sit on the covered patio and watch the water. Just enjoy the quiet at night with the shimmer of the moon on the water. Wonderful!
