Sharps Chapel Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 6 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 18+)

2 year old lakefront cabin 1/4 mile back a secluded cove off the main channel. Complete and ready to rent.

Our goal was to build one of the nicest rental homes on Norris Lake. We used some of the best materials and furnishings available to make this a first class experience for our guests. Luxuries such as SLEEPING FOR 18+ ON BEDS, INSTANT HOT WATER HEATER (ENDLESS HOT WATER!!!), a separate heating and air conditioning unit on all three main floors, and the list of luxuries goes on and on...

There are so many great things about our home -- see more photos and details at our website listed below. One of the best things about this part of the lake is that it is quiet. Glass-like water is commonplace. THE CHOPPY WATER & BOAT TRAFFIC ON THE DEERFIELD SIDE OF THE LAKE is almost nonexistent on this side.

The home is as close to the water as any home on Norris and is just a short walk down to the dock. It has a very private cove with only a few homes -- none of which are visible from ours. It is easily accessible and boats can launch for free nearby. There is also an area to park your boat trailer on site.

The dock has a huge swim platform and room for at least 2 boats. The cove is very calm and great to swim in for families. It is about 75' deep in the summer and has year round water (~45' winter depth).

TOP FLOOR -- 1 queen room which sleeps 4 and 2 additional large bedrooms -- one with a king bed and the other a queen. There is also a great hardwood floor 'loft' and a private balcony as well as a full, jetted, whirlpool bath.

MAIN FLOOR -- Full kitchen, large great room, master bedroom with king bed and private whirlpool jetted tub, 1/2 bath, and laundry room. Off the main floor is a very large 10'x45' deck -- 1/2 of which is screened in and fully furnished. A large gas grill is also available on that level.

LOWER LEVEL -- 6 bed bunk room and 1 additional bedroom with a king bed. A full bar with an additional refrigerator, ice machine, large screen TV, and a fully furnished living area including a full bath is also on the lower level. There is a large 10'x45' covered deck (covered by the deck above) off this level.

BASEMENT -- Combination Bumper Pool Table with Poker Top or Dining Top, 10' long hardwood shuffleboard table, and air hockey. Just outside is a luxury 6 person hot tub.

OUTSIDE -- Along with the hot tub there is a fire pit between the house and the lake. A very easy walk down to the lake and boat dock. The boat dock has a ramp with stairs so that the ramp will follow the stairs as the water level fluctuates.

LAKESIDE -- This is truly one of the most peaceful coves on Norris Lake. There is a little point that jets out and protects our dock and keeps the cove very calm. The home sits on a 5 acre lot with nearly 1/4 mile of shoreline with plenty of privacy.

2 PERSON KAYAK now available free of charge to guests

DOCK -- 3 slips plus a very large swim platform. We will have room for a minimum of 2 boats for our guests.

NEARBY -- We are located about 10 minutes (5 miles) by boat from 33 Bridge (Beach Island Marina) and very close to Island F. There is plenty of open water, private coves, or islands to explore just minutes away by boat. For golfers Woodlake GC is a short drive away. The closest full-service marina is Beach Island Marina or Hickory Star -- both about 10 minutes (5 miles) by boat. BUBBA BREW'S restaurant and bar are a lot of fun with live music and karaoke in season. Cumberland Gap is ~30 miles away for those interested in some great hiking and sightseeing.

THIS IS TRULY ONE OF THE BEST VACATION EXPERIENCES YOU WILL EVER HAVE. We have personally rented at Norris Lake for several years before deciding to build our own dream home. We are very familiar with the lake as well as the other rental properties and can assist you in finding the perfect place for your next vacation.

We hope you choose our place and please do not hesitate to contact us for additional information. We will update the site with new photos as we progress so keep posted but don't wait too long to reserve your stay. The good lakefront homes get booked up very quickly.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I have rented 20+ houses all over Norris Lake and this was definitely one of my favorites! The house was beautiful and well stocked with everything you need- especially the ice machine. :) This part of the lake is our favorite and the cove where this house is located is absolutely beautiful. There was plenty of room on the dock for our boats and to hang out. Great place all around!

Family Spring Break with Fabulous Memories Made

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home for family reunion, or multiple family getaway. We wanted a secluded time just for our family and we found it in this home. Each level in the home had something special. Our kids loved the game room level, lots to do! The hot tub was relaxing! The bar was great to make our favorite cocktail. Every bar tool was there. Great poker table with chips. TVs all around. The main level was fabulous too. Every kitchen appliance you could ask for. We didn't even use the top level but the home had every accommodation needed. Beds were comfortable. Bathrooms very nice! Dock had room enough for a few boats. Caught crappie right on dock. The lake was going through some changes which made it hard to catch fish. Every fishermen we talked to said nothing was biting. So possibly a different time would have been better. Overall this was a great spring break vacation for our family and this house made it fantastic! Any issue was handled immediately. Thank you to Paul and May! Definitely need a 4 wheel drive car as driveway is very steep and expect lots of stairs.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the nice review. Please note that the stairs referred to are actual nearly all inside the home since the home is four levels. There are only six steps and a very short trail down to the lake during full summer pool. Also, two wheel drive vehicles, even rear wheel drive ones, can make it up and down the driveway. It's an S shape driveway with a 3 rail fence the entire length, so even though it is fairly steep it also is very safe.

Wonderful Memories made!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year renting this wonderful vacation home!, The owners are so helpful and willing to accommodate. Their lovely home has many extras!! There is a very gradual incline to the lake where a very large dock can accommodate two boats. A swim ladder makes getting in and out so easy. Our grandchildren from 5 years of age to 11 enjoyed using the kayak and paddle board in the quiet cove and swimming in the lake. We will definitely be back in the future!

Thanksgiving on the Lake

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our time together at the Eagle's Rest. It readily accommodated all 19 of our family members. Our grandchildren ranging from preschool thru college age were able to interact as a group and at times be able to have their space. Thanks for making Thanksgiving on the Lake 2014 a memorable one. We would highly recommend it. The only challenge could be the steep road off the main street and drive way.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from vacation with our family of 20! We had a fabulous time!

This is a great house, set up for multiple families where there is plenty of space. We loved the location on Norris. In a quiet cove which was great for swimming. Then close to the marina where we could rent a pontoon and gas up. The kitchen is so well stocked. Beds were comfy too! We wanted to thank you for allowing us to share your home. Truly it was an awesome time!

Exceptional Property

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends just returned from our stay at Eagles Rest. We all agreed that this home is amazing. This home is high quality all way! The owners did not cut corners anywhere. This is a high quality built home with attention to details. Even the sheets and linens are top of the line. Plenty of room on the dock, and the best thing is SUNSHINE sun up til sun down! Good job, Talghers!

This is an owner-operated vacation home built to accommodate multiple families of all ages. Our boat dock has a large swim platform in full view of home and decks. Also a nice concrete pad with fire pit, tables, and chairs adjacent to lake. A grand total of about 6 steps down to the lake from the backyard! You can see the main channel from the dock and our cove is secluded, calm, and private. Very few boats ever come back the cove and it is very safe for everyone to swim and kayak.
