Why The Owner chose Big Creek

Look at our pictures and reviews. The dock is one of the largest on the lake in a wide, deep water cove.

What makes this house unique

This is our personal lake house, not a program rental. The kitchen is fully stocked.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is the first place we have rented that I would love to rent again. We truly enjoyed our stay. The dock is fantastic....even with the rain, I was able to sit outside under the gazebo while my family fished from the bottom level. The cove and lake are beautiful! The house was very comfortable and the game room very fun.

Located in a ridge and valley region, Norris Lake abounds in secluded coves. Recreational use of the reservoir exceeds that of any other tributary lake. Lake Norris is a great place for fishing, boating, swimming, and other water sports. Nestled between East Tennessee ridges, Norris Lake points the way to Cumberland Gap and the historic wilderness trail marked by Daniel Boone. With its clear deep water, it produces excellent catches of rock fish, walleye, and bass, as well as the usual species found in other area lakes. June through September night fishing for small mouth bass, croppie, white bass and walleye is a popular activity. Two small wild areas on Norris Lake provide visitors with

Great family home

  • 4 of 5

Awesome house for a family. Bunk room incredible. Dock was insane for kids! Hill is no joke. Hope you are in shape if you rent.

Only feedback. Bill the neighbor is very nice. But startled us as he let himself In the house when we didn't answer door! 😳?

Owner's Response: Thanks you for your feedback. We are really happy the house and dock met or exceeded your expectations. Regarding our hill - the last 1/3 of the hill to our house – We have a paved concrete walkway from the house to the lake. No way around it, 1/3 of the hill is steep. For Norris Lake it is steeper than some houses but not as steep as many others. The good thing is that there are no stairs to climb from the lake to the house. As such, we recommend that our guests consider renting a golf cart. Ron’s Golf Carts in Lafollette has provided carts to many of our renters over the years. Finally, our neighbor Bill comes by to each rental and introduces himself. He is a 75 year old, married and full-time resident of Norris Lake. I sincerely apologize that he startled anyone in this group. I will discuss this with him to make sure it doesn't happen again. I do hope that once you did meet him, that you are as engaged with him as many previous renters have commented in their reviews.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

It is a lovely place in a good location on the lake. The family really enjoyed the dock area. The dock was great for our wakeboard boat and jet ski for docking while on the lake.

Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place!!! Great little cove, good fishing, good skiing!! Rent a golf cart, because that hill getting to the dock will get old, other than that.. no complaints at all! The kids had a blast jumping off of the two story dock all day long!!! I would rent this place again!!

Norris Lake Rental

  • 4 of 5

This is a tastefully decorated gorgous home. We arrived to find the home clean, modern, well furnished and stocked with every ammenity imaginable. The best features of this home are the large, modern, open kitchen/dining area, the exceptional master and master bath, the massive bunk area for children and the large dock. We had children ages 2-13 and they all LOVED the jumping dock as much, if not more, than anything else. The dock area is well stocked with high end, comfortable, padded furniture and a excellent ladders that make exiting the water easy for the older crowd.

The downsides to this property would be the lack of cell service (there is NO cell service at all, with any carrier) and the last 1/3 of the hill. While the hill is very nicely paved and the 2/3 from the dock up are easily managed, the top 1/3 (getting close to the house) is extremely steep.

While I would recommend renting a golf cart, I will caution you that when we attempted to rent one, it did not show up. We contacted the golf cart company recommended, set up the rental and when it didn't show up, attempted to reach the owner of the golf cart company. He didn't call back until the next evening (24 hours later). He didn't seem to care that he forgot our rental. In fact, he claimed that he simply forgot (as if it were our fault) and still planned on charging us the same rate for the week. We declined the rental. I'm not sure how he stays in business with that type of customer service.

Owner's Response: I hope future prospective renters will see that there are four concepts discussed in this review. 1.) Our house and dock 2.) Cell service at our house 3.) The elevation change between our house and the lake, specifically, the steepness of the paved walkway the last 1/3rd of the hill to our house 4.) The unaffiliated third party golf cart rental company that was a disappointment to this renter While the first point speaks for itself in the comments provided, I would like to address the other three: Cell service – There is poor and uneven cell service all over Norris Lake. Some carriers work well in one place on or around the lake but poorly in another. We have Verizon and are able to text reliably from our house, however, the call quality is inconsistent and depends on the phone, location in the house, dock, lake, etc. We provide a landline for our guests to use and include complimentary long distance for any calls that need to be made. The last 1/3 of the hill to our house – We have a paved concrete walkway from the house to the lake. No way around it, 1/3 of the hill is steep. For Norris Lake it is steeper than some houses but not as steep as many others. The good thing is that there are no stairs to climb from the lake to the house. As such, we recommend that our guests consider renting a golf cart. Ron’s Golf Carts in Lafollette has provided carts to many of our renters over the years. Golf cart rental - We are in no way affiliated with a golf cart rental provider. We make a recommendation of one who has garnered good reviews from previous renters. With that said, while the above Renter’s experience is obviously disappointing, I would hope future readers of this review would separate the experience with the golf cart rental company from the house that was rented. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have regarding our house.

Beautiful views, very nice home..

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several properties at Norris, and plan to retire here. We brought our children, brother and sister in law, my parents and our grandchildren. This home was ready for us. Beautiful master bedroom, with nice master bath. The home is well decorated and it was very clean when we arrived.Kitchen is well stocked and we brought too many items from my pantry- as there were a lot of spices and things we don't normally have.

Bill was easy to work with, and the next door neighbor Bill came over to see what he could do to help when our boat had problems. He gave us numbers and names of people to call for work to be done. Ultimately we just used the pontoon that my parents brought, but he was very helpful. The only downfall to the location of the home was the utter uselessness of our AT&T cell phones. My Brother in law and sister in law had Verizon, and theirs worked most of the time. We could get reception on the lake in a couple of spots and since I work by phone we had to make a couple of trips daily to get messages. We didnt want to leave and look forward to another possible stay at the Vogel's home. Thanks Bill!!

Beautiful, private setting on the lake

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and our families had a wonderful stay here. The house is beautiful and well appointed especially the kitchen. Has everything you could possibly need. House is situated on a nice alcove in the lake with a great double decker dock that the kids (and adults) jumped off for hours. Paved walkway down to lake for golf cart versus trudging up and down stairs. Really was a fantastic property and owner was great to work with. Would absolutely stay here again.
