N. Marie Ayers purchased this house in 2006
I am a local real estate broker and never planned to own a home on Norris Lake. However, when I found this one with no steps to the water and off the main channel, yet with great year around water, I knew I had to buy it. Our son loves to paddle boat around the cove and fish. Its location, only 2.5 miles from town was a large factor in our purchase as well. We love it and are sure you will too. Come visit 'Gentle Slopes'.
Proximity to store, I-75, free Wi-Fi, hot tub, fire-pit, pool table, ping-pong table, large private deck, 2 full size hammocks and lots of nature. NEW 2013 2 bay covered aluminum dock.
A very nice place for a family reunion. Well-stocked kitchen, including an electric can opener, blender, lots of pots and pans, cookie sheets, casserole dishes, large bowls, everything you need and more, even had salt and other spices. There was plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, and linens.
Great location, only 9 minutes to town with Wal-Mart, Food City, Dollar Tree, and great buffet pizza at Charley’s Pizza Parlor. Located in a very quiet cove near Indian River Marina.
We had a wonderful time with the paddleboats, and the pontoon boat. We enjoyed the pontoon boat every day we were there. However, the golf cart was the deal breaker, especially for the older adults.
We would definitely book this home again.
The owners (Marie and her husband) were very responsive, friendly, and great to deal with.
I have to think this is the best value on Norris Lake. All of the toys (Pontoon boat, Paddle boats, Golf Car, Pool table, ...) were a great hit with the family. There was something for everyone. We had a great time --- our grandson is already asking when are we going back to the Lake house. Pictures don't really do the place justice - it's better in person.
The owner of the property met with us on our arrival date and showed us around and how to use the various equipment - she was extremely nice. We received our security deposit in a very timely manner. We highly recommend.
Well, this is a large property, as described! It has plenty of seating room on the deck, which I think is great! It's a clean and well maintained property and everything was in good working order. I think there's something there for everyone! The views are beautiful and this lake is so clean and nice! The dock is just great also, very big with picnic tables too-Thanks goodness for the pontoon-we took our ski boat, but ran into a mechanical issue, we would have been left boatless! My entire family just enjoyed this property! we met some great people at the marinas and had a fun time-I didn't want to leave!!!!
Myself and 11 family members stayed at Gentle Slopes in June 2014. We really enjoyed the house and it's many amenities. The golf cart made our trips to and from the dock easier, the pontoon boat was nice and ran good, the pictures do not do the dock justice at all, it is very roomy and big. The house itself is very basic but clean and well equipped, the basement is not finish but it is very clean and served as a great place for the kids to retreat to. When not on the water we spent most of our time on the deck, which was very spacious and has alot of seating. The owners went above and beyond during our stay, ready to address any issues or questions in a timely manner. I would reccommend this house for anyone. However, something I would have liked to have known was that it is in a quiet cove behind a marina and a little section of floating houses, I believe this resulted in debrie washing around the cove at times and the water didn't always seem as clean as we are use to with Norris Lake. We still swam off the dock but there were times we didn't because of the way the water looked.
We have taken our entire family 7 adults and four children to Gentle slopes during early June in 2011 and 2012. We have had a wonderful time there fishing and boating. We could not go this year due to a family wedding and a new baby, but we will return next year. My son keeps his boat at Cumberland and he is trying to convince his friends to switch to Norris based on the fun we have had staying at Gentile Slopes. We have met Marie at the Cincinnati boat show and also ran in to her at Walmart during our stay in 2012 and we appreciate her profressionalism and her attention to detail in accomodating us during our first two rentals. We will definitely be returning.
My family enjoyed our stay at Gentle Slopes. The many amenities allowed to have fun and not spend a lot of money. We hope to return again.
We are located approximately 1 hour from the Sevierville/Dollywood exit. Many travel to the outlet malls or Dollywood for the day. We are also very near Ride Royal Blue where you can rent ATV's and ride miles of trails. Clinton, TN is well known for its antique shops. Williamsburg, KY is home to KY Splash and just 45 minutes away. You could spend weeks with us and never see it all. Of course most people don't leave Norris Lake.
