About Mark Gooding
We have been going to Norris Lake for over 20 years. The lake is great. Good for skiing, tubing, wakeboarding, etc. Take a trip daily to different marinas, each with food and gas. Play cards on the dock day or night.
Mark Gooding purchased this Cottage in 1990
Why Mark Gooding chose Big Creek
Purchased the land in 1989, and started to build in 1990. Updated and well maintained. Our kids were small and it was a great place to watch them grow up. We try to provide everything so your stay can be pleasant. Cleaning service and trash removal is included.

Beautiful location, great dock amenities!
We had a great experience! All the water toys at the dock are a great plus. The cottage is set up wonderfully. Everything is really clean. Beds were comfy and everything was in working order. Thank you for helping us create great vacation memories with our family and friends.
Our crew was building a timber frame across the lake and stayed at the cabin for 3 nights. It was just the relaxing atmosphere they needed, clean and quiet after a long days work. We recommend this cabin for everyone needing to get away. Thank you Mark and Teresa.
Absolutely a beautiful lake and the home was lovely. Loved everything about the house and amenities. Thankyou to the Gooden family for allowing us into there lovely home. Priceless memories were made. Thanks
Beautiful and stocked with everything
We took our family here for Thanksgiving, my mother in law , went on and on about how well the kitchen was stocked, we really didn't need to bring anything. They had all the seasonings you could ever need... There is service for verizon but not AT&T, we only caught one fish , it was too cold and fish weren't biting. We had a ghost story contest by the fire pit at night. The kids love the ping pong, we went into town to hit up the redbox, and watched movies. There is nothing in town though except plenty of grocery and fast food options, but now I know the history behind the giant green dragon exit that Ive passed for years since my childhood along I-75 ! Ha! Plenty of TP and paper towels, the drive into town isn't long, but its narrow and winding. We saw geese in the yard and deer. It is very quiet, and peaceful. We hope to go back in the summer , so we can enjoy the dock more ! We even grilled our turkey on their grill ! Thank you for letting us use your house !
The Whispering Pines was the perfect place for our fall break. The house is well-equipped and well-cared for. The view is amazing! We enjoyed smores by the lake at the fire pit and kayaking in the cove. The open floor plan provided the perfect setting for conversation and laughter during meal preps and games. The Goodings have thought of everything for a peaceful retreat.
Great place to vacation, swimming, kayaking, paddle boating and sunning on floating deck.
Fully furnished with satellite TV, great kitchen and four bed rooms made for a roomy stay for my wife and I together with our kids family. Two kayaks, a canoe and a paddle boat on a pristine lake made for great fun. We all enjoyed swimming and sunning off the flotting dock.
