Overview

La Follette Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Rustic Home, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 14-20)

Imagine relaxing on a lakefront boat dock , surrounded by a gorgeous sunset slipping into the mountains, while clear and pristine water lapping at your feet. This is where you and your loved ones can reconnect and create memories of a lifetime.

Spacious and airy, our 2700sq ft, 3 story cedar lakefront home can accomodate 20 people. Three bedrooms (1 king, 1 queen, and 1 queen + 1 twin), one full bath and a lounging area with 3 sofas and 1 television with DVD player are on the first level. The main level espoused the main living room, dining room, kitchen and marble full bathroom with a jetted tub. The third floor loft area has a ensuite with 2 sofas, 1 queen and 1 twin on one side, while on the other side has 1 king, 1 full and 3 futons.

Fishing, boating, kayaking, and swimming are right there on the covered two-boat dock on the main channel of Lake Norris. This is one of the cleanest lakes in the US. Fishing spots for striper bass is just around the bend. Jetskiing, boating, water skiing, knee boarding, towing a water tube and kayaking are the smoothest, sweetest rides. Swim with the blue gill fish right next to the dock for a close up with nature.

After a gruelling day of fishing and boating, massage those muscles in a 9 person jetted jacuzzi on the lower deck while taking in the wonderous view of the lake and mountains.

Dine and wine on the second story balcony with a gas Webster Bar-B-Q and outdoor dining set and yes, more of that view of the lake and mountains and sunset.

Night time is the right time for roasting marshmallows and hotdogs in new firepit on a spacious paved patio while tracking all the star constellations in the brightest starry skies.

Chefs will find a modern kitchen with oven, dishwasher, refrigerator with icemaker, utensils, dishes, coffeemaker, toaster, griddles, and other appliances enough for over 20 people.

About Chris DeBrosse

I am a builder and real estate investor with a Florida contractor license for over 25 years.

Chris DeBrosse purchased this chateau / country house in 2005

Why Chris DeBrosse chose La Follette

My wife, kids and I travel all over the US with our boats, and with the greatest conviction I can reassure you that there are no better boating water than Norris Lake. I built this cottage mostly by myself and with help from family and friends, and this is where I share the fun with them. This is where our kids forged bonds with their cousins and grandparents, family and friends. This is where the memories are made.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

With the lake at your beck and call, wooded privacy, and spacious, modern cottage, what else do you need for a fun fill time with family and friend?

Our yearly trip to Lake Norris

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful Lake house, Beautiful view from both decks, We had 8 adults and 6 young adults, there was plenty of room, Great kitchen to cook large meals, The boat house was the nicest I have ever seen, The lower stone patio down buy the lake was great for hanging out , We had a fire in the pit almost every night, This house is as advertised. The drive is a little step, Cars and trucks no problem, Trailers of any kind are a no.

Great place for large families

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay during the 4th of July week. Easily accomodated our larger group of 15 people - all in beds. Love the natural woodwork and great space.Would higky recommend to anyone needing lots of room. Great location at Big Creek with a very nice dock that can accomodate 4 boats, one on a lift.

Excellent Sales Team Meeting/Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We brought in 14 people for a sales team retreat. Had meetings all morning and enjoyed the lake in the afternoon. Firepit, Den, and large Deck overlooking lake provided excellent meeting space. Lake was beautiful and warm. Will be doing this again sometime in the near future.
