Beautiful home, beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say! This was our first time visiting Lake Norris and we had an amazing experience. John the owner was prompt with every questions I had regarding the house. John was very easy to work with and provided any and all information we needed-from directions to any items we needed to bring with us . Our cabin exceeded all of our expectations. It was literally home away from home because it was fully equipped, beds were comfortable, cable TV and internet, warm feeling throughout. We were a group of 17 and literally everybody was satisfied with the home and the location. We had an amazing experience and I could truly see myself going back. I would recommend this house to anyone going to Norris Lake. It truly was a Slice of Heaven.

Great for family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here. 6+ families. Lots of cousins, lots of fishing (great for beginners right off the dock), and lots of swimming and boating. The only thing that I would suggest would be to add an ice machine, that would've made filling coolers a lot easier. Other than that, this place is amazing and I would recommend for anyone trying to plan a family trip to the lake.

Slice of Heaven truly is a slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I stayed in this beautiful house for a week and had an incredible time. It was a wonderful way to get close to nature and detach from the constant whine of cell phones with all the comforts of home (plus a little extra!) at our fingertips. The weather wasn't perfect for the whole week, but we discovered that the house had more than enough space on the covered porches and in the comfy living rooms (found on all three floors) to hang out for the day when it was rainy.

Additionally, my wife took a 30min. drive to the south end of the lake to visit the dam and some of the park surrounding it, which was really nice. The overlook above the dam was beautiful and impressive! We also stopped in at a fun little ice cream place called the Chunky Monkey on the way home.

We are looking forward to returning next year!

We met some friends here on our way back from Florida and it was exactly what we were looking for. Extremely clean, very spacious, great kitchens, great bed rooms and great hot tub and fire pit! Everything was exactly as advertised. We will definitely be coming back in the future! Thank you John!

Family Man

  • 5 of 5

We needed a large house for a family get-together and Slice of Heaven really filled the bill. The main floor has an incredible kitchen that serves as an operations center for the whole house. My group spread out among the three floors and while some of the younger ones stayed up to the wee hours playing pool and watching movies, the older ones among us got a sound sleep. We used the main kitchen and the great gas grill on the same level for meal prep and the lower level kitchen for beverages -- worked great. Even with cooler temperatures, we have a great time. I'm sure in warmer weather we'd have even more fun using the decks and dock. Some of our group did use the hot tub and enjoyed it and all of us gathered one night around the fire pit. Great experience and the owner was helpful and clear on directions, etc.

Big family celebration!

  • 4 of 5

Finally found a house big enough for our entire family to get together. The house is well equipped to handle a large group and contains plenty of space for adults and kids to spread out. John was prompt in replying to rental questions and especially quick to respond to last minute problems - even though our stay was during the holidays.
