About John Bertke
John Bertke lives in Dayton, OH and enjoys visiting Norris Lake with his friends and family. He enjoys fly fishing and smoking cigars.
John Bertke purchased this Cabin in 2010
Why John Bertke chose La Follette
They say location means everything. The Big Dipper is located in the woods, right on the waters edge. The fish come to swim around the dock. The boaters come to swim around the cove. There are two golf courses nearby. What more could you ask for?
What makes this Cabin unique
I'm an avid fly fisher, my wife loves to golf, and my daughters never tire from wakeboarding so my whole family stays happy when we visit The Big Dipper.

Well equipped for our large group
We brought our canoes and the kids had a blast. Loved having the dish tv package for nighttime tv watching. 3 refrigerators was wonderful.
Beautiful vacation home. We had a minor problem with one of the TVs, and the owner was very responsive. Place was beautiful, reasonable price, and really everything we hoped for. Couldn't ask for better. Thanks.
Relaxing Christmas time!
We spent a great Christmas here! If you really want to relax, this is the place since cellphone reception is not very good here. There's wi-fi in the house, and a "home" phone which you can use for free on the long distance calls. Our family (15 adults and 6 kids plus a dog) had wonderful time. The view is amazing. This house is by the Norris Lake, which is controlled by a damn and the lake levels go way down in the fall and winter. By saying that, spending summer vacation here and fully enjoy the lake must be a blast! The house is at the end of the road so it's a lot of space to park (easy 6 cars can fit). Highly recommended rental.
We thoroughly enjoyed the cabin...it was perfect for our weekend.
WOW!! Way beyond our expectations!
With 18 adults, 6 children between 1-5 and an expectant mother, we had room to spare. It was the best family get together outside of our homes we've ever had. All we had to bring was the food and the fun found us! Management was exemplary and we had no problems. The place was as clean & organized as any resort we have ever stayed at. The views were impeccable and the surroundings in the woods/forest were as clean and well kept as a state park. Not sure what the previous renter was referring to regarding the cabin being "not well stocked" because with 2-dishwashers, 2 coffee makers, 2 toasters, 2 refrigerators & double wall oven, plus I personally saw enough plates, cups & utensils to host a buffet for all of LaFollette...... I have absolutely no idea what else you could ask for. They also have a huge gas grill out on the back deck overlooking Cedar Creek making your cooking experience that much more relaxing. I brought my own boat and the dual covered dock was excellent. We also rented a pontoon boat and jet skis at Shanghai Resort right up the lake. What else can I say.....The only challenge I saw during the entire week, if you want to call it that, was the multiple trips up and down the steps to the cabin taking the kids on boat rides. I took people fishing and we caught numerous smallmouth bass throughout the week as well. There was ample parking in front of the cabin because it's on a dead end gravel driveway, unlike the cabins to the North which had very very steep driveways with much less parking. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to entertain large groups as we did.
Perfect for our large group!!
The house was wonderful and worked great for our group of 23! We cooked all meals at the house and the kitchen was perfect for cooking for large groups. It was very well stocked and was so nice to be able to eat together at the large dining table. Everyone had plenty of space when together or to do their own things on the floor they were staying on. I would highly recommend this house!! The other houses in the cove are close together and there were several people partying nearby but everyone was respectful and quieted down at night. The neighborhood boat launch is very close but I would not recommend this for novices at launching. It is very steep, long, and narrow. It had been raining the day we arrived and I slid down the entire launch with my brakes locked. The owner is not kidding when he says to use the neighborhood launch if "you have strong brakes" in the directions he sends. Sugar Hollow marina is about a 12 minute drive and their launch is much easier.
