Wonderful Thanksgiving week with Family!

  • 4 of 5

No one in our family had ever been to Lake Norris. Although we knew that late November would not give us the warm weather to enjoy golf, fishing, swimming, and boating we chose this property because it offered space for our 16 family members from ages 8 through 79. We had a wonderful time, had room for several cars, and especially enjoyed the large, well equipped kitchen. The large dining table seated 12 with bar stools nearby, as we cooked, ate, played games a lot. There was seating and space in the great room for us to enjoy some good football games, family videos, and games. Several walked down to the dock but the lake level is down for the winter. This made it a steep walk for older family members.

David, the owner, was helpful through the whole process. We are giving the property 4 stars but it offers large decks, grills, outdoor furniture, and the dock for those who would use it in the warmer seasons and would then probably get a 5.

Ideal house for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was clean, comfortable and well equipped, with lots of extras for a family vacation that included active kids. Our three generations enjoyed the kayaks, the paddle board, the boat and the float that came with the house. Tubing and jumping off a bridge was for the more adventurous. Fishing appealed to some, a nearby golf course to others. And the grandparents enjoyed the little deck off their bedroom - perfect for a book and glass of wine when they needed some quiet time. The kids ranged from 10 to 16, and all want to go back.

Really a great property and a great week at Norris Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for 14 people and it easily accommodated us all! The place was clean and fully equipped. The two refrigerators and ice machine were such a luxury! We rented the pontoon boat which was also very nice! All the guests were impressed. Biggest complaint was the hike up the hill from the dock! We found Dave to be easy to work with and always responsive to questions.

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!

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 La Follette

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.
