About the property

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms + 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-18)

This beautiful 3000-square-foot cabin rests in the back of a secluded cove with a gorgeous view of beautiful Lake Norris in the private Shanghai Homeowners Association. For all of you that despise steps, this is the house for you. Parking is conveniently located very near the boat dock, making the walk with all those coolers and extras a piece of cake. The drive to the dock only takes a few short minutes from the house. Our dock is private and can fit 2 good size boats with the addition of a couple jet skis. Your boats are safe and can stay in the water during your entire stay. Don't feel concerned about traffic because you’re inside the gates of a private community.

This five bedroom, three level home offers many extras. Four bedrooms have one queen bed in each room and in the loft bedroom there are two queen beds and two single beds. With the spacious living area it offers, it makes a great home to party with friends and family. The house is equipped with a fully functional DVD, CD indoor and outdoor surround sound.

The pool table located in the loft makes for fun filled evenings.

For those morning ice runs to the dock, don't worry about it. This house has a commercial ice machine located on the deck.

The covered and wrap around deck with our unique tiki torch setting makes for beautiful evening socials.

Parking? No problem. Plenty of parking for all your vehicles and trailers at the house. Additional trailer parking is also available in areas in our association.

For further information, please call the owner.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This cabin was amazing! It was so relaxing. The pool table was very convenient. There wasn't a day we missed without playing pool. I really liked the winding staircase. It just makes the cabin look interesting. The view of the lake is gorgeous. The beds were very comfortable. Everything was just so cozy. The fireplace was very nice! We made sure we used that as much as possible. While some of us went to the Appalachia Musuem, some of us decided to stay in the luxury of the cabin. This cabin was perfect for Thanksgiving. It was just nice to sit around and be a family, and think about all of the things we are thankful for. It's going to be hard to go home and go back to school tomorrow. Thank you so much for making us feel right at home.

Phenomenal Setting

  • 5 of 5

Our experience with this house was beyond stellar. The view is absolutely gorgeous, the house is beautiful (and very clean), and overall met all of our expectations. Also, the home owners were very easy to communicate with... pleasant and responsive. Huge plus.. there's an ice maker in the basement - insanely helpful for the amount of coolers we had :) Another plus, there's speakers out on the deck! Great for just chilling out in the evening and listening to some tunes. Thank you so much for opening your home to our group! We had a blast and will recommend this to all of our friends and family!

Enjoyable, Beautiful, and Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I have only good things to say about this cabin. It was everything and more we could ask for. The view is amazing. It is very well kept up to date and VERY clean. I was very impressed. I have stayed in other houses on Norris Lake, but this cabin was the cleanest I have stayed in. It is very enjoyable and relaxing. When you are here you dont think about anything else, it is like you are living a dream. The ice maker was awesome. Saves money and time, by not having to go to the dock every morning and evening. The beds are very comfortable. We were able to sleep 13 people. The dock was big enough that we did not have to worry about too many people walking/sitting on it and someone falling in. Some days we would just sit on the dock instead of going out on the lake. We were able to get 2 jetskis and 2 boats docked. Very nice! Oh yah I cannot forget to the mention the pool. We used the Shanghi pool The owner of this cabin was very easy to work with. I recommend this cabin to everyone and I will go back there again. I have only GREAT things to say about this cabin. Thank you soo much for letting us rent your cabin. It is beautiful!
