About the property

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 and Dish Flex network are on the first level, as well as 5 additional televisions with Dish network in bedrooms and living rooms.

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.

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 Big Creek

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?

We recently stayed at this property the July 4th week of 2017. I have organized this trip for 6 years now with other couples and this has been the BEST house we have stayed in to date. The owners are absolutely amazing people who have taken GREAT pride in building this property. The house could not have been set up any better for large groups and it truly feels like a lake house. The location of this house on the lake is the icing on the are so close to all the main marinas with quick boat rides to any of them for entertainment.

I will be staying here again and if anyone is looking to stay on Norris Lake this property WILL BE BOOKED VERY FAST so I would suggest booking before you are left settling for a lesser home!!! Oh yeah....this also had the BEST wifi of any home as well, if you have been to this lake before you will know how hard that is to come by.

2 - Great location on the lake. Was able to Wakeboard and Ski with very little boat traffic.

3 - Plenty of room for the Kids to sleep.

4 - Chris the owner was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with during the rental process and during our stay.

5 - Covered Boat Dock.

I will be looking to rent this again in the future.

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.
