Why Andrea Smith chose La Follette

Norris Lake is crystal clear.

The best feature of this lake is having your own private dock, no need to put your boat in and out every day.

FABULOUS!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 13, (ranging from 21-73) had a WONDERFUL time at Daydreamer! We did have a few rain days (1st week in October) but the house is set up so that you can spend "quality" time with each other inside or outside on the decks with a great view of the beautiful lake. The three levels allow for different activities without disturbing others. We loved sitting by the gas fire pit on the deck while it was raining. Even though it did rain, it was not cold...the "young" ones went swimming off the dock in the rain. :)
The lake is absolutely beautiful! We rented a pontoon and a jet ski and had the lake to ourselves! The house has everything you will need; it is super comfortable and beautifully decorated. Everything is great quality. Everyone liked having their own bathrooms. The kitchen was great to work in...2 ovens, 2 dishwashers and everything you would need.
It is a little steep to walk from the dock to the house...for those who may have health issues. One caution I would like to share has to do with the water rentals...if you are planning to stay during "off season" make sure you can buy gas if you need it. We needed more for the jet ski and none of the marinas were open...we had to tow the jet ski back with the pontoon. Just made for more laughs! :)
Great Place for family vacation! Thanks Andrea & Brian.

Best vacation house ever!

  • 5 of 5
I wish I could give this place 10 stars. We felt like guests in a spectacular home -- not like we were just staying in a rental house. The water of Norris Lake is so clean that it appears as an unbelievable shade of Caribbean aqua green! The landscaping was masterful, the interior decoration impeccable. This house is outfitted like none other; every detail is attended to, no matter how small. Ice-makers, drink-makers/blenders, toasters, spatulas, utensils, you name it, all appropriate for the occupancy one could expect with a house this size, and all excellent quality. The double-decked dock means you can enjoy the perfect lake setting regardless of weather conditions and wow! Such a beautiful, peaceful, natural area. The furniture is fabulous. You will feel like royalty in this house. Smart royalty! ;-)

Best vacation at Norris Lake ever!!

  • 5 of 5
There were 12 adults and 6 children (ages 5-9) staying here and each and every one of us, said this was the perfect house for us. We have stayed in many different houses on Norris Lake, but this one surpassed our expectations. No problems with drawing straws as to who gets the master suite. There are 6 of them! The description of the home is right on and even more. We already booked for 2015!

great house

  • 5 of 5
I almost hate to write this review for fear someone else might rent it when I want it.Our family has been renting at Norris for almost 14 years and this was by far the best house we have ever rented.The owners have spared nothing.All the king rooms have a bathroom and every floor with a shared living room area with a big tv for movies or games.1st floor kitchen and basement kitchen with no need to bring paper plates.Enough silverware, glasses and cups for 30 and 2 dishwashers on 1st floor.Lastly let me talk about the double-decker deck.A huge swim platform and upper sundeck with another grill and we brought a couple of easy up awings for shade,several sun tanning chairs along with 3 bar height tables and 12 chairs.Less than 40 steps to the lake make it easy to get to and from the house.Andrea can't thankyou enough can't wait to get back. Sincerely The Northcutts

Top Shelf

  • 5 of 5
First of all, let me give the caveat that the house was nearly brand new when we rented, and there was still work being done to the outside (driveway and landscaping). This was the source of the only problems we had with this house. We had a wonderful time at Daydreamer. Lake Norris is clean and beautiful, (although the fish were not biting) and the weather was perfect. We rented a boat from Whitman Hollow as suggested by Andrea; that was easy and the boat excellent. The guys at WH know Andrea and were happy to work with us. We used the pontoon boat a great deal and it really gave us a lot to do. The house itself was nothing short of FABULOUS. Exactly as promised, and everything was top shelf, from the furniture to the dishes, to the movies and games provided, the appliances, the decorations...EVERYTHING. Seriously, we thought there would be no way they would have enough flatware to feed 30 people, but there was more than enough, and with two dishwashers upstairs and one on the lowest level, we never ran out. Cooking facilities were great: a huge natural gas grill on the deck, a double oven, a gourmet gas stove, and two ice machines. Even a grill on the two-level dock. I hated coming home! The biggest problem we had was the internet, which was inadvertently cut by the landscape guys when they were placing boulders. This caused some of our party to have to go to town and park in the KFC parking lot to get banking and professional work done that we would have done in the house. It would have been nice to have been compensated for the inconvenience, but everything else was so perfect I did not ask. It really was a gorgeous house, extremely clean, tastefully appointed and completely furnished. Andrea thought of everything. I had to call her everyday about the internet, and she was extremely accessible, gracious, and helpful. Here are a few suggestions, based on our experience: There are a LOT of stairs to climb; arthritis sufferers beware; the nearest town (LaFollette) is about 30 minutes' drive away, and there is not much to do there; bring extra towels if you have a large group; ATT cell phones get no service but Verizon did; there are no hiking or biking trails, in fact, the roads are steep and very winding and scary to drive, let alone walk.
It really was a beautiful place and everybody had a great time, from age 3 to 76. I would definitely recommend this to my friends. In fact, I already have.

Best Rental on Lake Norris

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 14 (Grand Parents, Parents and Grandchildren) spent a wonderful week at Daydreamer. We have rented many properties for our family gatherings before, but they all had something missing - - NOT this home !. From the best equipped kitchens (2) ever, to the soft bed sheets and beautiful bedrooms to the 3 family rooms with great TV's and furniture, plus the fantastic large dinning room table seating 16 people. Tables and grills for eating on the patios and dock deck were another treat. Dock was great and swimming is excellent. We can't say enough about this wonderful home - -it felt like a home, not a rental property. We highly recommend it to everyone.
