Why Andrea Smith chose La Follette

Norris Lake is crystal clear.

The best feature of this lake is having your own private dock, no need to put your boat in and out every day.

Awesome Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both Daydreamer and As You Wish for our family reunion! Both of these homes are wonderfully decorated, comfortable and well equipped! They were perfect for our large group and being side by side made spending time together comfortable and easy. Brian and Andrea were great to work with -- answered our questions and checked in on us to make sure we had everything we needed. They made sure these homes had everything you might need - I've rented a lot of VRBO homes and these are by far the most well equipped and cared for! Lots of extra touches from the free-standing icemakers, multiple dishwashers, excellent game and movie selections to the child-sized picnic tables on the decks - we enjoyed our stay very much and hope to rent these again sometime soon! There was plenty of parking spaces for our multiple vehicles. Even in mid-April, we enjoyed swimming and kayaking and fishing right off the docks. The limited Internet was used up quickly with a large group like ours... but it is understandable as these homes are set back - away from it all! There was only spotty cell service - mainly only the people with Verizon got a signal. It gave everyone a chance to really go off-line and relax and enjoy being together. You won't regret choosing either of these homes for your next lake vacation. They are clean, well cared for and felt like a great "Home away from home!"

Rarely do you find the PERFECT accommodations. This house is perfect. Open space living areas, multiple living areas (indoor and out), High end finishes. 2 full kitchens. The ice maker was a huge plus. Multiple washer and dryers added bonus. We had 45 people sign up to attend. We spoke with the owners, and rented BOTH of their houses, DAYDREAMER and AS YOU WISH, are side by side and make the perfect get-a-way for large groups. Each house will fit 26 adults. Our weather did not cooperate with us but there was still plenty of space indoors. The boat docks were perfect for sun bathing and fishing once the clouds cleared and rain stopped. Overall this house 10 stars. If I have to find a negative, lots of steps (it is a 3 story house). This we knew ahead of time. LOVE the location, LOVE the finishes, Love the look and feel. Would stay again and again. The owners are easy to contact, and a pleasure to speak with. Too bad reality had to return and we had to leave......

We rented the house for our sibling reunion. Everything we needed or wanted was there. The house is decorated very nicely, great appliances, great decks with chairs for everyone. The house has really been taken care of by it's owners. We would like to go back next year!

Gathering of family from across the Southeast. House was perfect! All of us use VRBO regularly. Never stayed in a house so well equipped. All rooms very well furnished, comfortable.

Beautiful views. Loved literally every minute.

Owners very helpful as we planned over the last year.

Highly. Recommend.

Thank you for sharing your home.

Beautiful, immaculately clean, perfect home for Thanksgiving for 24 people!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely perfect, inside and out. The home was exceptionally clean, stocked with everything you need, quality bedding, towels, furnishings. The view of the lake and sunrise is amazing. Perfect for a large group and several families. The ages ranged from 1 1/2 years to 76 years old. And it was perfect. Two kitchens, three living areas, a huge table that accommodated our large Thanksgiving meal part! The decks were so nice, most notably the middle level with the propane fire pit. The area surrounding the home was excellent for daily walks. The dock was so nice. I would highly recommend this home!!!

A fabulous home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 had an amazing long weekend in Sept. at your wonderful home. Very well stocked and decorated. Could not have asked for anything more. We rented a pontoon for 2 days. Need to really bring most food, etc.. In with you as getting to a grocery is a full 30 min on winding roads. Lots of stairs to get down to the boat dock...but well worth the trip.
