Overview

La Follette House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

When you sit out on one of the 2 large decks taking in the breathtaking sunset view overlooking Norris Lake you will wonder why it took so long to discover this spectacular getaway vacation. There is something for everyone; bring your boat or rent a boat at Springs Docks just minutes away to go fishing, skiing and swimming. The mountains lend themselves to hiking with golf nearby. There is access to a swimming pool, tennis and volleyball courts as well as a children's playground. Come back to our smoke-free house after a day on this crystal clear lake for continued fun with family or friends, Crank up the music on the top notch sound system to dance the night away, start a ping pong or corn hole tournament, watch movies on the Satellite TVs with DVD and CD located on both the main level and lower level, fire up either the gas or charcoal grills, or maybe just slip into one of the 2 lake view jacuzzis in the 2 master bedrooms on the main level. If you can picture yourself doing any one of these activities Ficke's View is the perfect house for you. Located on a quiet street in the gated Deerfield Resort Community you will feel as though Norris is your own private getaway.

The modern kitchen is fully equiped and faces the lake so you never miss out on the view. An open floorplan allows for everyone to be a part of the fun. A separate lower level family room houses the ping pong table and another TV.

We will furnish the bed linens and kitchen towels. You just need to bring bath and beach towels. A washer and dryer are provided if you should need them.

This is a year round getaway home.

Why Mary Ficke chose Norris Lake

Norris Lake is close enough to drive to and far enough away to forget about the hustle and bustle of the city. The folks down here always make you feel welcome and the lake never feels crowded.

What makes this house unique

Deerfield Resort is an exclusive gated community on Norris Lake, located between the Cumberland Mountains and the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountain. Norris Lake has over 800 miles of shoreline and a surface area of 34,000 acres. The water is 200 feet deep and clean enough to drink. Deerfield Resort is the only development on the lake with private airstrip, championship golf course, swimming pools, children's playground, tennis courts, sand volleyball and more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We first stayed in your home in 2002 - I found the note - When we had 3 babies. They are now 10,8,8! The view is still beautiful, one of the best in Deerfield. Your colorful walls are nice. I like your house so much we used it as a design for ours, built 5 years ago. This is our first rental of your house since then - it is usually not available. Hope you get to enjoy it too.

Large, Lots to Do!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. Rented it with both of my brothers and their children and we had a blast. Be sure to rent a boat well in advance (like a month) as there was nothing available when we arrived!!

Fantastic House!

  • 5 of 5

The first impression when walking through this house is that it is even better than the pictures. The view is fantastic and the house is very well furnished and maintained. The home was large enough that our group of 14 people could stay there and not feel the least bit crowded or cramped. We were originally thinking of staying on a houseboat but are glad we didn't and stayed in this spacious house instead. It was our first time to visit Norris Lake and this house was one of the big reasons it was a wonderful vacation.

A Slice of Heaven!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family including our adult children and 4 grandchildren couldn't have had a more relaxing vacation! This home was gorgeous with porches to enjoy the breathtaking views, a swimming pool within walking distance, marinas close by, and a great golf course! This house was the best equipped home we have ever rented! We will cherish our great memories in this wonderful spot!!

Awesome Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family get-together. We had a total of six adults, 3 children and 2 infants and we had more than enough beds, bathrooms and room for everyone to relax and enjoy the time together. The house is very comfortable for large groups and is even nicer than the pictures portray. We especially enjoyed the size of the upstairs bedrooms and the King sized beds. We also enjoyed the ping pong table and are looking forward to coming back in the summer when we can enjoy the lake. We also saw a number of deer which was a nice surprise. The owners do an excellent job of maintaining this property and I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a clean, inviting and comfortable place to stay.

Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

My family and I loved the house,the view, and especially the abundance of deer around the property. The house was perfect for a large family. The owners kept in contact with me via email and were always there to help with any questions. I wish it was a little closer to the water, but other than that, I can't think of anything more we could have wanted. Great place!
