About Erica Steuber

We have been coming to Norris Lake for years and are excited to be able to buy this house jointly between 3 families.

Erica Steuber purchased this house in 2016

Why Erica Steuber chose La Follette

The house is perfect for families and with the level yard and only 20 steps down to the water, it is easy to load up your boat and head out to enjoy the lake!

What makes this house unique

This home is close to the main road, yet off the beaten path. We have a level lot and minimal stairs. Great views of the lake, big water but not exactly main channel. Convenient boat ramp and quiet road.

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, we rented this home for a family gathering. The pictures don't do this home justice! It is clean, well equipped, and has gorgeous views! Unfortunately for us, our visit was not timed to experience all the area has to offer. The owners have assembled a binder full of fun things to do during summer, but I don't know that I would ever leave the dock! When we visited, the lake level was very low, but I can only imagine what the summer is like. I look forward to returning when we can enjoy ALL the amenities this home had to offer.

The owners are prompt and courteous. It was our first holiday after my father's passing, and they made sure our stay was a pleasant one.

Great first time

  • 5 of 5

First time to Norris Lake and loved it, the house was everything the owner said it would be.Beautiful and very clean and owners answered all our questions. Kids enjoyed jumping from the top dock, and the Kayacs were used all day. Screened in porch and grill were a great plus near kitchen. All in all a great place, and had a great time. Would recommed this property to any one. Only a small amount of steps to dock.
