GREAT HOME ON BIG CREEK-- 'RAY'S PLACE', AWESOME SUNSETS

La Follette House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16)

Welcome to Ray's Place at Norris Lake, the Marth’s Summer home on Big Creek in Norris Lake. A great family getaway.

Take the time to read our guests reviews. This is a special place. Come visit.

THE HOUSE:

A beautiful constructed home completed for rent the Summer of 2011. The house is approx. 3000 sq ft, with two large decks overlooking majestic views of Norris lake. With sunset views of open water and the Smoky Mountains in the distance, you will create memories for a lifetime. The house is an open floor plan, built as a lake house with big windows and doors opening to the water and the sunsets.

Four bedrooms, with two masters bedrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs, an additional queen size bedroom and a bunk room creates and inviting format for two or three families. The house has beds for 12 and large great room for few air mattresses if needed. Amenities; gas grill, washer/dryer and fire pit.

Location:

If you like still open water, beautiful trees and gorgeous views, this house is for you. We have a two slip covered dock with a large swim platform ( 12 x 32). With half of it covered, so it is great if you love the sun or need a little shade. One slip will always be available for renters, with room to tie up an additional two boats if needed, or slips are available at nearby Sequoia and Whitman Hollow Marinas.

Our home is in the Big Creek area, positioned directly on the opposite side of the lake from Windsor Point. It is a nicely treed lot on a quiet street, ready for a rustic retreat, or the privacy for you to bring your Party to Norris lake. We are a short 17 min drive off I-75, much closer to 75 than the congestion of Deerfield and far less water traffic. Did I say Far, as in way less water traffic than the popular Deerfield area.

Arrangements:

The House is available for rental at a fee of $425 per night with a minimum of three night rental. $2975 per week. Rentals are weekly only in July and August. Off season, $350 per night, minimum of three night rental. A security deposit of $500 is due upon reservation. Taxes and cleaning fee($175) are additional. If you have any questions or have an interest in rental, please call.

About Tom Marth

My wife Kristi and I and our family have fallen in love with Norris lake. We are excited to share our home with you. The focus is family and friends and good times shared. We live in Cincinnati with our four children and plan to spend many great times at Norris lake in our new home. We hope you enjoy it too.

Tom Marth purchased this house in 2011

Why Tom Marth chose La Follette

We chose this lot and house for a few reasons. We loved the amazing views of sunsets and open water not available on cove locations. We love the reduced congestion of Big Creek area versus the over crowded, congression or the Deerfield area. We created a welcoming home, with one big great room open to the kitchen, huge decks overlooking great views of the lake and a short walk (NO Steps) sidewalk to the water.

What makes this house unique

Big water, an awesome dock, with a covered slip for the renter. Close proximity to Whitman Hollow and Sequoya Marinas. A beautiful home, nicely appointed and ready for you to create memories of a lifetime.

Just spent 3 glorious days at Ray's Place with my family. House was beautifully decorated, had a great lay-out, and was nicely equipped. The views from the decks were gorgeous and the lake was clear and the most beautiful shade of aqua. We would love to go back.

Just leaving Ray's Place from a weeks stay over the 4th of July and wish we were staying another week! The house is even more beautiful than the pictures, as is the view! Location is nice and centrally located to several marinas and also perfect for watching the boats go by while enjoying the firepit at night! Highly recommend Ray's Place. Great communication from the owner as well, which is always nice!!

Upscale Boating Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This extraordinary new home is outstanding. Million-dollar waterfront view, superior indoor and outdoor amenities including an incredible dock and a wonderful location on the lake. We had a terrific time in this clean and well-maintained property and would definately recommend it as a first-class vacation destination.

Great Thanksgiving Week at Lake Norris

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time during Thanksgiving week. This home is beautiful with huge windows facing the lake along the whole back of the house. The decks are huge and provide terrific views of the lake. The kitchen is fully equipped, even for Thanksgiving turkey. All of the beds are comfortable and the bunk room can sleep 4 people easily. This is a great place for an ultra relaxing get away.

Awesome Place

  • 5 of 5
Same story as the previous reviews...been coming to Norris for years, Ray's Place is simply the best place we've ever stayed. The house, the location on the lake, the attention to detail on the owners part, the view, the dock, the amenities inside the home...all of these things were first class at Ray's Place. We had three couples and 3 young children, we'll be back for Summer 2013 and Fall 2013.

Just a heads-up for those who may consider Norris a "Summer Only" destination...try a Fall trip. It's half as crowded, the water is still warm, and the fall colors in the mountains are absolutely beautiful.

Owner's Response: Joel,

Thanks, I agree, the Fall at Norris lake is spectacular. You can catch a 75 degree weekend and the trees are beautiful. I am going down next weekend.
