Why The Owner chose Norris Lake

We love water skiing, wakeboarding, and fishing on Norris Lake. We also love the mountain views and the nearby fly-fishing and hiking. We have created wonderful family memories here and would love for others to enjoy it, too!

What a house!

Everything was perfect! Marica was a great help from beginning to end. The house comes with everything you will need to enjoy your stay. The deck is breathtaking and the rooms are very comfortable. We will be back soon!

Beautiful Home.

  • 5 of 5

Several of us went to ride ATV’s, and visit the beautiful smoky mountains while the leaves were changing colors. It was centrally located to where we were going. The home is beautiful well furnished. It worked perfect for our trip, everyone enjoyed it. Would rent again when in the area, Marcia was great to work with. It was as advertised and more.

Wonderful house on private cove

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time in 5 years we've rented Jabez Villa for family reunions and have a fabulous time every year. Marcia is always wonderful to work with. The house is spacious and comfortable with lots of light and room to spread out. The large kitchen tables make it easy for 12 of us to eat meals together. The kitchen is very well apportioned and there's not much you need to bring with you from home. We love the privacy of being at the end of the cove. The trip up the stairs from the dock is great exercise, especially when we're eating more than usual on vacation! We enjoy the convenience to grocery shopping and the wonderful state park with pool, tennis courts, volleyball, horseshoes and trails. We feel like it's our home away from home and look forward to continuing our tradition of renting Jabez for our family get-togethers.

Mostly Fantastic!

  • 4 of 5

Marcia was easy to work with in the lead up to our trip. She was prompt in sending the pertinent information and was very fair in negotiating a price that made sense for a slower than usual weekend. The property is set deep in a neighborhood. You would never expect to find a large 6 bedroom cabin with lake access in this type of neighborhood, and yet there it is. The walk down to the water is not bad, but the walk back up was a little bit intimidating. As the title indicates, our trip was almost entirely exceptional. We were very pleased with the layout of the bedrooms, the plentiful bathrooms, and how open the entertaining space felt. Unfortunately, I was less pleased with the water down at the dock. It was still and murky and even a little dirty. We were far removed from the main portion of the lake or any civilization on the waterfront, for that matter. The closest dock was about 150 yards down the stream. I guess this might be nice if all you seek is privacy. Just don't expect a picturesque lake front property. This property is on a creek that may or may not be attached to the lake after several turns and some tight navigating, in case you intend to rent a boat.

My only other negative would have to deal with the post check-out feedback. Marcia gave me a hearty guilt trip, asking why there was so much trash. As frequent cabin renters, we've become accustomed to using all paper products to make for easier clean up. On the other hand, this equates to more trash at the end of the stay. Marcia did not seem happy with the amount of trash and seemed to suggest that we would not be welcome back for a future stay. This was very surprising to me as we have been renting cabins 3-4 times each summer for the past 5 years and this is the first time we've received feedback like this. If you rent this cabin, be aware that you might be opening yourself up to some serious criticism. Finally, it has been two weeks since check-out and I have yet to see our security deposit redeposited to my bank account... just some food for thought.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your compliments. In the past, five large trash containers seemed adequate for a week's stay. I was surprised when the cleaning crew informed me that the containers were full, as well as extra bags. We do plan to get another large trash container to minimize overflow. Thank you for your tidiness in the house. The deposit will be sent by bank check within 30 days from your departure, but the check is usually released around two weeks from departure. The guests are informed that due to Norris Lake lowering the water in late summer, we may not have water at our dock for boats at that time. You are welcome to rent from us again. Marcia
