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.

Fantastic Home and Property at The Grand Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at The Grand Escape at Springs Dock. The home is conveniently located in a quiet cove, but close to a marina, convenience store and restaurant. A big plus for us was the beautiful dock with 2 kayaks, a paddle board, and a swim pad that came with the house rental. A pontoon boat was docked right there and available to rent for an additional cost. It was so convenient! All we had to bring were food and clothes....everything else was provided for our stay. The house even had an ice machine! We had a great time and definitely would go back again!

DeStress for a week.

  • 4 of 5

It was a beautiful house and setting. Our family enjoyed it very much. We had so much fun at the dock. We rented a boat for a day and had a great time. Next year we will not be able to stay in this particular setting due to the steep grade of the back yard to the dock with no steps. My parents are too old for this type of climb. We enjoyed our stay and the house was very accommodating.

Great lakefront property

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many houses at Norris and I have to say this is one of the top 5! We had 9 kids ranging in ages 5-18 and they were all very pleased with this house. There are 2 kayaks and a paddle board and a super nice dock that kept them very busy when we were back at the house. Loved the ice maker, that saved us a lot of time stopping at marinas to refill everyday on ice. House was clean and fully stocked! We will definitely be visiting again!!

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.
