New Years Blast!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented As You Wish for New Year's 2015. What a fabulous place! We had never seen a kitchen stocked like this one. Huge accommodating frig,great stove and a storage closet unlike any other! There wasn't a thing that we needed that we did not find. The views are beautiful and the home is exceptionally clean and well kept. The long table accommodated all of us for games and eating which we did a lot of! We had an issue with the hot tub and it so happened Brian and Andrea were coming to town and although they were unable to fix it right then, their efforts were outstanding. They also came in to visit with us a little at our request. Great folks. We were very pleased with every aspect of the home and would not hesitate to rent it again if the occasion should arise. We were a group of 12 and had plenty of room. As You Wish was definitely all you could wish for!!

Simply Breathtaking!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved As You Wish because it truly lived up to the details listed on this site. We were skeptical everything listed was true because we never stayed in a place like this before. But how amazed we were by the place in every aspect from the location to the amenities provided. Even though we stayed in December our faces from the enjoyment would have you think we were their during the summer. The owners were very kind & reachable when we needed something no matter what time of the day. This is a must stay location and we will be back very soon.

We rent a lot at Norris lake . . . our family grows and our needs change. This wonderful house was the largest but because it was laid out perfectly . . .it does not feel huge or overwhelming. The 5 suites with king beds and baths were a huge hit! Being on 3 floors with lots of carpeting keep us all sleeping well with the quiet and comfort. The numerous bathrooms were awesome!

The main floor, with the big kitchen table, allowed us to eat all our dinners together . . .just how we like. And the dock was exceptional. Housed our boats and the upper deck made for our a great gathering space.

The owners were very congenial and seemed to genuinely care about our stay. There were many details the showed how they tried to plan well for everyone's comfort. Adequate parking . . . great kitchen . . .this house had it ALL! Would HIGHLY recommend!

Great time

  • 4 of 5

We celebrated our 25th anniversary at the house with close friends and family. The house was great and very well appointed. Everybody had a great time. There were a few things that need to be addressed. Some of the bedroom doors did not want to close/lock properly. Also the main grill on the deck off the dining room was literally falling apart. Both grills, the one at the house as well as the one on the dock, were filthy and some of the dock chairs were broken.

Otherwise everything was great. The water was absolutely beautiful. The kitchen had literally every possible gadget including a margarita machine. We would definitely consider doing it again.

Family Fun on the Water

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time on a Lake Vacation and it couldn't have been better. As You Wish house had everything we could have asked for. There were 22 of us from age 15 to 92. The only difficulty was having 6 -7 adults in the bunk rooms with very little space for clothes, but we managed. The lake was amazing and every day a new adventure took place as the shoreline was explored. Yes the driveway was very steep and the morning "runners" found it very challenging to take their morning run.

5 Star and more!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a great vacation and can easily give As You Wish a 5 star rating. We filled the house with 25 people (12 adults and 13 kids ages 11-1). Plenty of room for everyone. The accommodations were excellent. The house was very clean, kitchen was unbelievable (everything you need and more), beds comfortable and location absolutely perfect. Great fishing and boating were enjoyed by all. We even found ways to wear the kids out even more by having races up the driveway (those who have been there will understand)! A couple of boaters stopped by our dock and asked about the house. Told them they probably can't find a better one on the lake! Just a heads up for those bringing toddlers- the second story deck on the dock does require vigilant watching but we circled the perimeter with all of the wonderful chairs, tables and loungers and were able to contain the wiggly ones. Would absolutely stay here again. Many thanks to the owners who have thought of everything!
