About Mary Eipert

We are a family that enjoys being together, especially on the water. We have enjoyed Norris Lake for many years, and this year were thrilled to have the opportunity purchase another floating vacation home, we call it our 'Floating Holiday'. This photo was taken the day we bought our first house. Our smiles say it all!

Bob and Mary have three children ages 11, 15, and 16. Mona has one adult daughter. We live in Berea, Kentucky, where the two sisters were born and raised.

We love to travel, especially to the water. So Norris Lake is a very special place for us. We have made many memories here over the years, and plan to make many more. We hope you enjoy our homes and make many memories with your family and friends that will last a lifetime.

We have enjoyed nesting in our new vacation homes. Bob has been busy making some nice improvements and we have added many of our own little touches to the houses.

We have really enjoyed meeting our guests and making new friends. Many of our guests have spent more time in the house than we have!

Mary Eipert purchased this house in 2011

Why Mary Eipert chose La Follette

We have been coming to Norris Lake for many years. Our father introduced us to this lake, and it has been in our hearts and vacation plans ever since.

The natural beauty, crystal clear water, and the friendly people we meet here keep us coming back, year after year. There is no where else we would rather invest our money and our time.

What makes this house unique

The people at Springs Dock are some of the friendliest people we've met. The other home owners are great to get to know, and have been so welcoming to us 'newcomers' . The marina and their staff have all the amenities we need, and some of the best prices we have found on the lake.

The view from our 'Floating Holiday' just can't be beat. Sitting on the porch, we look at untouched forestlands and miles of crystal clear water stretching out in both directions.

Time doesn't seem to exist on the lake. Your day is what you make of it. Leave your troubles and stress behind. A Floating Holiday is truly a break from the world.

This year we have made several improvements, which we hope you will enjoy as much as we do. New living room furniture and a new infrared grill that cooks much faster, and several other touches we hope you will enjoy.

This is one of my favorite weekend summer spots! The view is absolutely amazing morning, noon or night! I slept awesome every night. The owner spends much attention to detail to accommodate everything you may need for your stay(or might have forgotten). It felt like a home on the lake! :) So obvious how much they must love their floating home and SO happy that they let others enjoy! Can't wait to go back!

We have stayed in this house 2 times now and each time has been wonderful. Words can't describe the amount of fun we have here. The house is just as it looks on the web sight. Very clean and welcoming. If you family loves water actives this is the place for you. We did houseboats for 14 years and it got to expensive so we tried this and will never go back. We are expecting our 1st grandchild and hope to have many memories made here with our family and grandchildren. Make reservations is easy and the owner is great to work with. Very accommodating. I would recommend to anyone who loves water to rent this paradise!!!!!

Our family loves this beautiful floating home. The view is wonderful!! It is so fun watching the world go by or watching the kids and family play on the slide and diving board. We loved eating our meals on the patio - there was enough room for all of us!!! The kitchen worked out nicely for lots of people. It was very clean and well equipped. We are hoping to go back for our third vacation this summer.

Amazing weekend at the lake!

  • 5 of 5

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the view! Right on the front row of one of our favorite marinas on our favorite lake in the world! Ammenities were great! Having the slide, diving board and paddle boat added to the fun while floating around the house!

The fans out on the patio, were so nice...we had all meals outside on the deck!

Floating house was very clean and well-maintained. And owners were most attentive with a maintenance problem that we had.

The beds had new foam mattresses and were SO comfortable! Most rental properties don't have the greatest beds in the world, but these were fantastic! You can tell that the owners love the property and use if for themselves as well! :)
