About Ellen Kooser

The Kooser Family!

Welcome to the Lakeside Lounge! We hope you love and enjoy this home as much as we do! We are the Koosers. We have 3 sons and we built this home for our family as a place to build many happy memories. We hope you do the same!

Ellen Kooser purchased this house in 2008

Why Ellen Kooser chose La Follette

This home is much more than your average 'rental'. When you stay here, you will feel as if you are staying at a friend's retreat. Just read our reviews from happy repeat guests.

What makes this house unique

When we built this home, we had just come home from a trip to St Martin in the Caribbean. The house we stayed at was phenomenal and I wanted to copy all the things we enjoyed in that unique property. So we added things most rentals don't offer. Personal items...high end appliances....beautiful dishes and full bar...big comfy beds with lots of pillows and high thread count sheets and Pottery Barn quilts. We furnished the home with our personal items and custom leather furniture from Arhaus Furniture. I want our friends and family and guests to feel like they are staying in a first class resort. I hope they do! Finally, we want the home to be clean...no excuses. And we work hard to give every guest a feeling of being welcome.

Lovely home & attentive owners!

  • 5 of 5

The Lakeside Lounge is stunning from the moment you walk in the door. The owners have paid attention to detail, making the home so comfortable! Big leather furniture in the living room which is so much nicer than fabric (since you never know what's been there before you). There is a massive dining table which allowed our party of 10 to eat together and play many games. The kitchen was lacking in nothing & there is even a Keurig. We brought lots of food and the extra fridge in the basement was used for water and drinks. The king beds were incredibly comfortable and even the sheets were soft!! We had adult kids with us who slept in the bunk rooms. They said the beds were very uncomfortable. But they were sleeping 2 to a bed, and they were in their 20's. I imagine that most of the time, those beds are used by children. No box spring, so to be expected. We LOVED the fans over the king beds, as we use them at home.

The dock was perfect for us with tons of toys! We brought our pontoon boat with us, and having the covered dock was a luxury; not having to cover our boat at night. There are lots of chairs on the dock for sunbathing - which our young adults did. A trampoline, floating mat and a huge party float. Unfortunately, no one had taken the time to pull the float up on the dock when they left and it was full of scum. We wanted to use it so 5 of us scrubbed from top to bottom. We left it pulled on the edge of the dock so that it would stay clean.

The stairs are a killer, but in this part of the lake, all the houses are like this. You see the pictures going in, so it's def rent at your own risk. It was a good work out for us all.

We had a minor problem with AC while there & Ellen got an electrician there immediately who solved the problem.

The bathrooms are very clean and stocked with towels. The only thing we didn't have was soap. We bought some at the store; no biggie. This location is great bc you are only about 20" from the Food Lion. We made several trips in since we kept running out of food. It was great to be that close to the grocery.

The only "con" I can say is that there is very little lighting in the living room. I saw that many people have written that in their reviews and it is still the same? We played group games and read/worked there & it was too dark :( We ended up bringing lamps from the bedrooms so we could enjoy the space.

I would absolutely recommend this home to anyone. From the bar to the toys, this place accommodates all!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review. We appreciate all the kind words and the suggestion on more lighting for the Great Room. We are having the kitchen completely gutted and remodeled this fall so I will make sure the contractors get more lighting in that space. Come back anytime. We love repeat guests!

Perfect house to make memories!

  • 5 of 5

This house was picture perfect upon arrival. The owners and cleaning team made sure the first impression was stunning! Clean, well decorated, and well accessorized made this house perfect for our group of 17 guests from 10 -99 years in age. Three large master suites, two big bunk rooms, bathrooms, kitchen, gathering spaces inside and out were all utilized during our week-long stay. The lakeside lounge is also in a perfect location - quiet inlet off the lake for swimming and cocktails on the dock, close enough to several marinas, and the "Dare to do it" Jumping Bridge. Its also close enough to town to pick up the last minute needs for the grill or cooler to make each day a rewarding adventure vacation all on its own. The owners of this great property made sure we were connected with boating options from Oasis Watersports who delivered an almost brand new pontoon boat to the dock at the house before we even arrived. This beauty sat 16 and allowed us to take almost our entire crew for morning, or evening excursions around the TVA's first project in the USA. I can't say enough about this house, the owners, and the experience. We will try to come back again as it was also the perfect centralized gathering point for family from VA, TX, GA and Ohio. We will be repeat "USERS of the KOOSERS!"

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The Lakeside Lounge is the perfect place for a family vacation. The home is beautiful and has everything you will need. The location is perfect. We loved feeling like we were in a private neighborhood on the lake - which was simply beautiful. We enjoyed our days fishing, boating, jet skiing, and rafting. Our teenagers all loved it too. We hope to come again!

Just like home

  • 5 of 5

We felt right at home in this beautifully well kept home away from home. Gorgeous lake view every morning. Nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac, fun water sports, close to the "jumping bridge". You couldn't ask for more. The owners pride shows in how nicely decorated and well stocked with everything that you need the house is. Truly does not feel like a rental property. We will definitely be brining our family back!

Gorgeous home with fantastic view of the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Everything our family is looking for is included with this gorgeous lake house. Large kitchen, multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. 2 decks and a private hot tub over looking the lake and dock. Plenty of room for boats, paddle boards and jet skis. We love our annual trip to Norris Lake and this special home has helped create many fun memories

We love Lakeside!!!

  • 5 of 5

Lakeside is truly a home away from home. Surrounded by luxury and beauty both inside and out. Lakeside provides all the amenities anyone could wish for with comfort and ambience of being in your own home until you step out onto the amazing decks and take in the spectacular view of the lake!!!

We look forward to our yearly visits and are now making it out twice a year!!
