Really Nice

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful, extremely spacious, and overall accomodating. The view is spectacular. My immediate family had the entire second level that included: 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, kitchen and balcony. Each floor was equipped similarly. The only issues were there's absolutely no cell service in the area, the nearby cabins are too close--compromising privacy, and the original requirement to make our own beds upon arrival. I was exhausted and felt that the expectation was unacceptable. After informing John about my displeasure with this, he sent someone over to make all 14 beds. I was very very appreciative. So as long as I can enter the cabin without having to make 14 beds, I'd rent it again.

2nd time visiting and already planning on a 3rd!

  • 5 of 5

John does a great job of providing plenty of information with plenty of advanced notice for his vacationers. The place is very clean, comfortable, and well stocked with kitchen amenities.

This year we noticed a convenient addition of important info posted inside of picture frames at the top of the stairs which was quite useful. Another small suggestion for making this place even better would be to add some larger drinking glasses. Most of the cups are not large enough to fit a full can of soda.

The one negative point from this years' trip was a brief (~1hr), unannounced time of lost power and loud construction noises at about 8:30am in the morning. It would have been great to be able to plan ahead for this as we were woken up by the noise and then all cooking options and fridge access were put on hold until we got power back. In the grand scheme of things, this is really rather minor, but still would have been nice to hear about ahead of time.

Great home for a large group, lake access on the property.

  • 4 of 5

great home for large group, comfortable lounging and dining area on main floor, additional "dens" on 2 other levels, Wi-Fi/cable tv/ even though we rented "off season", house phone, 2nd kitchen on next floor down. comfortable beds, adequate bathrooms for our group of 11. water access on property. 10 minutes away from Lafollette for last minute shopping needs. Owner provided all information (directions to home, house "rules", use of hot tub, arranged to have firewood delivered at a reasonable cost, well maintained dock, some maintenance needs which I made owner aware of but overall in good condition.

This home was truly a "Slice of Heaven"! We had a group of 16, and everyone was very pleased. This was an adults only trip, but suitable for many occasions. The pictures are very accurate. Considering it was an adult trip, we traveled to "The Jumping Bridge", which was right around the corner, but still far enough away for privacy. John was beyond helpful, and very soon to respond! The list of kitchen utensils was a first for me! I've never dealt with anyone so detailed. Thanks again, John!

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.
