Great time

  • 4 of 5
We celebrated our 25th anniversary at the house with close friends and family. The house was great and very well appointed. Everybody had a great time. There were a few things that need to be addressed. Some of the bedroom doors did not want to close/lock properly. Also the main grill on the deck off the dining room was literally falling apart. Both grills, the one at the house as well as the one on the dock, were filthy and some of the dock chairs were broken.
Otherwise everything was great. The water was absolutely beautiful. The kitchen had literally every possible gadget including a margarita machine. We would definitely consider doing it again.

Family Fun on the Water

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time on a Lake Vacation and it couldn't have been better. As You Wish house had everything we could have asked for. There were 22 of us from age 15 to 92. The only difficulty was having 6 -7 adults in the bunk rooms with very little space for clothes, but we managed. The lake was amazing and every day a new adventure took place as the shoreline was explored. Yes the driveway was very steep and the morning "runners" found it very challenging to take their morning run.

5 Star and more!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a great vacation and can easily give As You Wish a 5 star rating. We filled the house with 25 people (12 adults and 13 kids ages 11-1). Plenty of room for everyone. The accommodations were excellent. The house was very clean, kitchen was unbelievable (everything you need and more), beds comfortable and location absolutely perfect. Great fishing and boating were enjoyed by all. We even found ways to wear the kids out even more by having races up the driveway (those who have been there will understand)! A couple of boaters stopped by our dock and asked about the house. Told them they probably can't find a better one on the lake! Just a heads up for those bringing toddlers- the second story deck on the dock does require vigilant watching but we circled the perimeter with all of the wonderful chairs, tables and loungers and were able to contain the wiggly ones. Would absolutely stay here again. Many thanks to the owners who have thought of everything!

Excellent accommodations for large family gathering

  • 5 of 5
We were so pleased with our stay at the As You Wish home. The accommodations were accurately described and we found everything to be of stellar quality when we arrived. Our extended family of 18, ranging from small children to adults, found everything we needed for a week together. The bedrooms and living areas are beautifully furnished and very comfortable providing a relaxing environment for our holiday together. The property was clean and well-maintained in addition to a fully supplied kitchen of appliances, cutlery, plates, etc. We did not need to bring any cookware from home. If you are planning on cooking, you will find everything you need. The owners were extremely helpful and had instant communication with us throughout the entire process. The outdoor space is beautiful and we enjoyed using the fire pit, even during the winter. Caution, the driveway is steep, but manageable, and there is plenty of parking at the bottom and top of driveway. We look forward to revisiting this property again.

Best lake accomodations ever!

  • 5 of 5
We''ve stayed at many different houses and condos on many lakes over the last 29 years and this house was the best ever. It is perfect for a large family gathering. There are many different areas to gather ( 3 living spaces indoors, 2 decks, 1 patio, 1 patio down by lake, deck on the dock) so there can be small or large groupings of people yet someone can always find a quiet space as well. The house is extremely well stocked with many dishes/pots/pans/ towels, etc. There wasn't one thing that we wished we had along and could have brought along less if we would have known what was all in the cupboards to use. The 1st floor kitchen was also useful for those who just wanted to come in from the lake and get more drinks/ice or were sleeping on that level and wanted a quick cup of coffee. With the dishwasher down there, we didn't have to haul the coffee cups and silverware all the way upstairs and back down.

We do recommend that if you are pulling a boat to leave it at the Whitman Marina before you go to the house as the road is very curvy, narrow and hilly. We also left the boat trailer at the marina parking lot with a trailer lock on it. The driveway to the house is extremely steep so no boats should go down there. There is plenty of parking for 6-7 cars at the house or extra space at the top of the driveway.

This area of Norris Lake is not busy compared to over in the Deerfield area. The dock is on a good sized cove so you do not have a lot of boat traffic in front of the house. Great area to swim off the dock, float on air mattresses or kayak if you bring one along. Lots of great chairs to lounge on either on the 2nd floor deck of house in the shade or in the sun on the dock.

The house is beautiful and has a great view from all floors. The landscaping is very pretty and well done. The house is 3 stories so there are plenty of stairs if that is a concern. Also about 35 steps down to the dock but they are not steep. There is not a railing on the steps to the dock. We had a group from 7 to 82 years old. Grandma hung out more on the 2nd floor deck of the house on the padded and very comfortable chairs and was able to watch everyone down on the dock. She loved it. Just had to be careful having a couple people with her when she ventured down for a couple of boat rides.

Highly recommend this place for all groups.

Kudos to the owners! This is the perfect vacation home. High Praise for As You WishWhen

  • 5 of 5
When I booked this vacation I had very high expectations. All of my expectations were exceeded a hundred times over. I can’t say enough good things about this property or the owners. We were a group of 17 (10 adults and 7 children) traveling from Kentucky and Georgia for an annual getaway. I chose this property because of the multiple king bedroom suites for the adults and large bunk rooms for kids. What I had not planned on was all of the movies and games that the kids would enjoy and the amazing kitchens the cooks would rave about. WOW, when they say fully stocked they mean fully stocked. We were at want for nothing, including space. The house is designed so that there is plenty of room to spread out. This home will accommodate many more than the 17 we had.

We also had an opportunity to meet the owners while we were there and it was clear to us that they really wanted to help make our vacation extra special. There were a couple of very small things that needed to be addressed (2 minor things) and they were there immediately helping us out.
When we weren’t on the lake we spent the majority of our time on one of the many decks or at the fire pit. In fact, on our last night we all met at the fire pit and started planning our return.

The owners have really thought of everything to make a stay at this property special. Once we parked the cars we never moved them until it was time to leave. My only regret was that we didn’t stay longer. Thank you Andrea and Brian for a fantastic vacation!
