La Follette House Rental Photos and Description

5 Br, 4.5 Bth, Lakefront, Gentle Slope To The Water, Gated Community W/ Launch

Brand new in 2013, this tastefully decorated 5 Bedroom home in Hidden Springs, has everything you need for a great Norris Lake vacation. This house was designed for a multiple family vacation- you'll have everything you need for a fun and memorable get-away. Located near Deerfield, the home features a great room upstairs with fully stocked kitchen and an enormous rec room with wet bar/spare fridge on the lower level. Three suites with adjoining bath, plus 2 additional bedrooms featuring queen bed or bunks, and built in bunks in the rec room offer comfortable sleeping for 16. Free Wi-Fi and Direct TV are included.

This home has an open floor plan which provides plenty of room for everyone. The main level with vaulted ceilings offers a fully equipped kitchen with peninsula seating for 4, dining area for 8, great room with 50 inch TV, DVD player, IPOD adapter and sound bar, 1/2 bath and two bedrooms, each with private bath - one with a king size bed and the second with a queen size bed. Both bedrooms have lake views and walk out to upper deck. The upper deck also features a screened porch with sitting area and dining table.

The lower level consists of a rec room with a 50' TV, DVD player, IPOD adapter, sound bar, game table and chairs, wet bar, and second refrigerator. Four custom bunk beds offer additional sleeping or cozy spots to watch a movie. Also, on the lower level are three bedrooms - one lakeview with one queen size bed and private bath, a second lakeview with a queen size bed, and a third with 4 twin beds (bunk beds & daybed/trundle), plus 4th shared full bath. The playroom opens to the expansive lower deck with plenty of room to relax and enjoy the view. Also, on the lower level is a laundry room with a full size washer and dryer.

Both levels of the deck lead to a concrete lake path with minimal slope by Norris standards and steps lead to the covered one slip concrete dock. Plenty of room for 3 boats or other water toys. From the dock, you are just 0.2 miles across the lake to Sugar Hollow Marina, and a quick boat ride to the 'Jumping Bridge' (Cedar Creek Bridge.)

The driveway offers off-street parking for cars, and the cul-de-sac offers plenty of room for trailer parking.

Hidden Springs is a private gated community, and features its own private boat launch. With only 100 lots, it is located on beautiful Norris Lake with over 800 miles of shoreline. Sitting between the Cumberland Mountains to the north and the foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains to the southeast it offers some of the region's finest boating, skiing and fishing.

Hidden Springs is located neer the Deerfield Resort, which offers amenities including an 18 hole golf course, and two restaurants.

For great deals on jet skis, pontoons and ski boats go check out www.oasisnorrislake.com and talk to our friends Eric and Jesse. There are also several marinas very close by and here is the website to www.norrislakemarinas.com . Groceries and pharmacies are a twenty minute drive in LaFollette, TN.

We are northern Kentucky residents who value family and friends. We have a strong faith and are committed to each other, our children, extended family and community.

Jeff & Laura Harris purchased this house in 2012

We have been vacationing at Norris lake for 15 years and have built some of our most treasured family memories in this great location. Building this home is a 'dream come true' for us, and we hope that it will be a place that our guests can feel at home and create wonderful and lasting memories.

After vacationing/renting at Norris for many years, we have tried to think of everything that our rental guests might need for an enjoyable stay - plenty of common space, comfy beds, a mild slope to the water, top notch dock, well equipped kitchen, easy boat launch, and convenient to several marinas.

Fantastic week at a beautiful house

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 16, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
Our family group of 14, ages 2 to 67, had a wonderful week. The location, house, dock, and lake are beautiful, and exactly as pictured. The owners were helpful, and responded promptly to questions and concerns before and during our stay. The two living rooms allowed us to separate for adult and children's activities and movies. We loved the screen porch, although we had no problems with bugs on the other decks. The 5 to 11 year olds loved the bunks in the wall. There are several large flat screen TVs, and lots of premium movie channels, if you can stay awake after a long day on the water. The kitchen has an abundance of very nice glasses, dishes and pans, baking and muffin pans, and a large griddle, but we noticed the review on lack of big pans, and brought our own large pot to boil corn, and also a big electric skillet to scramble eggs for the crowd. We used the big new gas grill every night, grilling hamburgers, chicken, halibut and steaks. It worked great. We did miss a salad spinner, but no kitchen has absolutely everything. The refrigerator is very large and accommodated all of our food, but its ice maker was empty when we arrived and could not keep up with our big group. We bought several bags of ice almost everyday, either at the marina, or by someone passing through town. We used the downstairs frig for drinks, and stored bags of ice in its freezer. It does not have an ice maker. We brought our own ski boat, and spent most of our days on the dock and in the water, swimming and boating. The kids caught quite a few little fish off the ramp to the dock, throwing them all back. While the concrete path to the water is indeed "gentle by Norris Lake standards", be advised that it is very steep by anyone else's standards and has no railing. While the kids ran up and down with no problem, it was challenging for the oldest and most out of shape among us. Hopefully a railing is in the future plans. The steps were no problem but one section of steep concrete ramp near the top was a little scary going down and difficult going up. With hindsight, I think all steps, with a couple of landings, might have been preferable, but perhaps cost or construction requirements did not allow it. One rainy day, we drove less than 2 hours north to visit Cumberland Falls. Gatlinburg and the Smokies are also not a bad drive away, but on sunny days we could not bring ourselves to leave the lake. We had a fantastic week, and recommend it enthusiastically.

Great house, great location, great lake

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 22, 2013

This brand new house was exactly as advertised. Clean, comfortable, well-appointed and perfect for our three families with kids ranging in age from three to 17. Owner communications were always helpful and timely. We brought a ski-boat and planned to rent a pontoon, as well, but decided against it as the kids had so much fun swimming from the dock between tubing runs. The jumping bridge was a fun (and slightly scary) experience, but one most of us tried at least once. We even found a crazy-long rope swing in a cove on the other side of the lake. That was a blast!

When the water fun stopped, the relaxation was easy in the screened-porch, comfortable common areas on two floors and on the decks with their westerly sunset views over the Sugar Hollow Marina. The marina was particularly convenient for gassing up the boat and buying a few items at reasonable prices. (Sunglasses cost me $6.50, less than I might have paid at WalMart, which is about an hour round-trip.)

Only issue worth mentioning, and it's sort of goes hand-in-hand with a new house, so it's not quite a complaint: Kitchen/cooking items aren't quite fully developed. For a house that sleeps 16, the largest pot is a bit small for boiling corn or cooking spaghetti noodles. And if you need to cook sauce and spaghetti noodles (which kind of go hand-in-hand), it's a pretty tight juggling act. But, again, a small quibble. We did leave a meat thermometer we purchased as our contribution to upgrading the kitchen implements!

Overall, we loved it and would not hesitate to recommend or return.

This place is new, spacious and right next to Sugar Hollow Marina. Owners are nice and accommodating. Also, very close to the jumping bridge and Deerfield golf resort. I would recommend a stay here.

With more than 800 miles of shoreline and a surface area of 34,200 acres, Norris Lake is a gem, tucked between the Cumberland Gap and East Tennessee ridges. If you love boating, fishing, scenic hiking, there is no better place. The water is deep and clear with lots of coves for swimming or relaxing.
