About Dave and Barbie

Our family has been vacationing on Norris for more than 10 years. We were hooked after our first trip. We recently decided to call Norris Lake our home away from home. We would love to share our joy and excitement with you!

Dave and Barbie purchased this house in 2014

Why Dave and Barbie chose Norris Lake

After looking at many homes and various locations on the lake, we choose this home due to its convenient location. It isn't too far off the highway. Super Walmart is nearby. The roads to the house are an easy drive (even pulling a boat). There are three boat launches close and plenty of trailer parking. We also loved the idea of being in a No Wake area ideal for swimming and off the beaten path of boats traveling in and out of the marina. We also like having many marinas and restaurants close. The golf course being so close also provides additional activity when you need a break from the lake or a nice attraction in the off season. There is a carryout convenient store less than a mile from the home for any last minute items. The home is muli-level with two family room areas providing nice separation for large groups.

What makes this house unique

Many marinas and restaurants nearby. No wake, prevents unwanted boat damage. Two Kayaks, paddle board and water mat provided for use.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very nice time at the lake this past weekend. Your place is very nice, very spacious. We had no issues with anything. The great room was quite comfortable for all 9 of us to gather and watch a game.

Again, very nice place, thanks for sharing your lake house with us.

Grand Weekend

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for a wonderful lake experience look no further than The Grand Escape at Springs Dock. The weather was not the greatest the weekend we stayed but the kids still loved it. The kayaks and paddle boards were fun and easy for the kids and allowed for hours of entertainment. At night the kids watched movies and played air hockey downstairs while the adults stayed upstairs. Just a wonderful experience. We will definitely be coming back!

Very nice and spacious!

  • 4 of 5

My family of 4 and 8 other family members enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday at this lake house. The kids loved the basement and lake of course and the layout was perfect to sleep 2 11 yr old girls and 4 teenage boys. We adults had plenty of room to relax in the main living area and really enjoyed the big kitchen and deck! The dining table is HUGE and perfect for all of us to play games. Just overall good time and very peaceful! We would all stay again. Dave and Barbie were easy to make arrangements with. Would definitely recommend Grand Escape!

Very nice for a big family. The house was very clean and there was enough seating inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

We hadn't been on a family vacation in about 25 years. No one had been to Norris Lake before and we are glad we went. Dave was so easy to work with. The house was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was really equipped. 3 electric griddles and a lot of pots and pans. The boat slip was covered and the dock was very large. They even had 2 kayaks and a paddle board for our use. That part of the lake is so quite. The kids loved it. The house is right across from Springs Dock which made it so easy for us to pick the pontoon boat. I would recommend staying here.

Beautiful home & Great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and very spacious. The setup offers great areas for a large group to dine, relax on the couch, or hang on the decks. The kitchen was stocked with everything you would need including utensils and tupperware. It was a really nice bonus to have 2 refrigerators in the house. The dock was very nice with a table and umbrella included. My family enjoyed the use of the paddle boats and kayaks. Location was great on the lake! Dave and Barbie were very responsive and helpful with all our questions prior to arrival. Would definitley recommend this house for making great lake memories!

Perfect Spot for the Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a family vacation with ages that ranged from 6-70ish. Fun was had by all!

We had a full house with 16 people. While that is maximum occupancy, we all still had plenty of room and didn't feel crammed into our accommodations.

The house was beautiful and very comfortable, even with our large group. The kitchen was well stocked with needed appliances. The two refrigerators were very helpful and aided in less trips to town, since we didn't have to go to the grocery daily. The ice maker came in handy too!

There was plenty of sitting room and places for us to spread out. We especially enjoyed the porches. Very nice to relax on with great views!

This location of the lake is PERFECT! The water was calm since there is very little boat traffic. We spent many hours swimming near the dock, using the paddle board, kayaks, and there is a rope swing in the cove that a few of us had fun swinging from. We did rent a boat from Springs Marina a few days, but there was plenty to do and a boat was not needed for our group every day.

Having the marina so close was handy too. We could easily use the kayaks to go over and grab a yummy ice cream or forgotten ingredient for a meal.

We did not want to leave and plan to return in 2017!!
