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.

Nothing but excellence!

  • 5 of 5

AMAZING.

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.

FABULOUS!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 13, (ranging from 21-73) had a WONDERFUL time at Daydreamer! We did have a few rain days (1st week in October) but the house is set up so that you can spend "quality" time with each other inside or outside on the decks with a great view of the beautiful lake. The three levels allow for different activities without disturbing others. We loved sitting by the gas fire pit on the deck while it was raining. Even though it did rain, it was not cold...the "young" ones went swimming off the dock in the rain. :)

The lake is absolutely beautiful! We rented a pontoon and a jet ski and had the lake to ourselves! The house has everything you will need; it is super comfortable and beautifully decorated. Everything is great quality. Everyone liked having their own bathrooms. The kitchen was great to work in...2 ovens, 2 dishwashers and everything you would need.

It is a little steep to walk from the dock to the house...for those who may have health issues. One caution I would like to share has to do with the water rentals...if you are planning to stay during "off season" make sure you can buy gas if you need it. We needed more for the jet ski and none of the marinas were open...we had to tow the jet ski back with the pontoon. Just made for more laughs! :)

Great Place for family vacation! Thanks Andrea & Brian.

Best vacation house ever!

  • 5 of 5

I wish I could give this place 10 stars. We felt like guests in a spectacular home -- not like we were just staying in a rental house. The water of Norris Lake is so clean that it appears as an unbelievable shade of Caribbean aqua green! The landscaping was masterful, the interior decoration impeccable. This house is outfitted like none other; every detail is attended to, no matter how small. Ice-makers, drink-makers/blenders, toasters, spatulas, utensils, you name it, all appropriate for the occupancy one could expect with a house this size, and all excellent quality. The double-decked dock means you can enjoy the perfect lake setting regardless of weather conditions and wow! Such a beautiful, peaceful, natural area. The furniture is fabulous. You will feel like royalty in this house. Smart royalty! ;-)

Best vacation at Norris Lake ever!!

  • 5 of 5

There were 12 adults and 6 children (ages 5-9) staying here and each and every one of us, said this was the perfect house for us. We have stayed in many different houses on Norris Lake, but this one surpassed our expectations. No problems with drawing straws as to who gets the master suite. There are 6 of them! The description of the home is right on and even more. We already booked for 2015!
