About John Bertke

John Bertke lives in Dayton, OH and enjoys visiting Norris Lake with his friends and family. He enjoys fly fishing and smoking cigars.

John Bertke purchased this cabin in 2010

Why John Bertke chose La Follette

They say location means everything. The Big Dipper is located in the woods, right on the waters edge. The fish come to swim around the dock. The boaters come to swim around the cove. There are two golf courses nearby. What more could you ask for?

What makes this cabin unique

I'm an avid fly fisher, my wife loves to golf, and my daughters never tire from wakeboarding so my whole family stays happy when we visit The Big Dipper.

Family from far and wide congregate for the weekend

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice place with lots of rooms for 20 or more people. Beds are nice sized so everyone had a bed to sleep on. Sort of hard to find as these are on a very steep road but a nice and quite area. Recommend to bring extra blankets and towels if your are large group like ours (25). Only found a couple extra blankets and other than that only sheets and the quilt/comforter on the bed. Loved the long table in the kitchen and all the frig space. Tv's everywhere as well and a great hot tub. Enjoyed this place!

New Years Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everyone had a blast! This was the second time our group stayed at the Big Dipper for the New Years weekend. We had a large group which utilized all 9 bedrooms. Even though it was a full house, there was still plenty of space for everyone and it never felt too cramped. The house was clean and well labeled making items easy to find. We hope to make it back next year for NYE! Thanks John!

Great Holiday Place for Grown-ups!

  • 5 of 5

Our family Thanksgiving gathering at the Big Dipper was proclaimed by all to be our best holiday venue ever! Because our group is all adults, the lodge provided an excellent atmosphere for us to relax and enjoy each others' company. This is our only opportunity to be together during the year, so having a place like the Big Dipper is very important to us. The accommodations were very clean and comfortably furnished, so we hope to return in 2014.The owner was very pleasant and clearly wanted us to have a wonderful time.

Amazing service

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends stayed in the Big Dipper over the New Year holiday. It was an excellent gathering spot - spacious, comfortable, and clean. My daughter accidentally left her boots there, and John, the owner, mailed them back to us free of charge! He was super nice and went above and beyond to ensure that we were happy customers. Thank you again, John!

Great Family get together!

  • 5 of 5

We decided after losing our father last year that we would get together for the graduation of my daughter.We have a very large family and enjoyed the house from day one to day seven. Bedrooms galore. The bedrooms with queen and bunks are much larger then they appear. Entertaining at every level. You want a peaceful vacation you can not beat the location. If you are looking for more excitement, hop in the boat and cruise the lake. The kids enjoyed tubing and skiing. Fish right off the dock. We took a day and drove 3 hours to Asheville to see the Biltmore. Well worth the drive. Some of the older kids went to Dollywood on another day. Drove to Cumberland Gap ate at Webb's cafe and then drove up to the Pinnacle and had a view that could not be beat.

The owner was friendly and very easy to make arrangements with. House is great for group or family get togethers, graduations and other celebrations.
