Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9-13)
My wife and I lived in Knoxville, TN for 10 years and loved spending time at Norris Lake. We now live in Columbus, OH so that we can be closer to our families.
Owner purchased this House in 2004
Why Owner chose Big Creek
Even though we moved to OH, we wanted to continue to enjoy boating and skiing with our children and friends, so we bought this cottage to enjoy and share with others. Our property is close to our friends and it is in a wonderful area of Norris Lake.
What makes this House unique
Our property has a covered dock. We are near the end of a cove, so there is no boat traffic in front of the dock and it is very safe for swimming, even for smaller children. The lot is not steep and the house is close to the water, so it is easy to walk between the house and dock. Our property is very peaceful and relaxing - it's a great family get-away!

good time /wrong time
well, my boys and brother had a good time.i didn t know the lake was so far downhill.my brother has a bad heart and it was hard for him.rick didn t get his boat fixed cause he worked til the day befor. I didn t know it was off season, so nothing was available for them. they did find a boat to rent on thursday
and had some good fishing. this was my 1st get away planning for me, so I didn t get it right, but I know now for the next time. they said the cabin was too big and the only thing negative was that the dishes had to be washed befor they used them and a knife in the butcher block was greaseybut over all they liked it and did have fun and got plenty of rest.my brother is doing a FIRE job and my boys are in flooring, best in kentucky just mention their name and you will know they also specialliize in ceramic tile..shower stalls.im happy it was fun for them....thank you
Hi Janet. Sorry but in mid-April the water was down about 8ft which makes it a farther walk to the water. Our property has fewer steps to the dock than most. We do have 3 bedrooms so it might have been bigger than you needed. I am sorry about the previous guests not washing the dishes as well as you expected as our cleaning crew does not wash or put dishes away. We are glad that we could help you with your booking and that your boys had a good time.
Very happy with our stay
Beautiful property and house, well maintained!
A perfect week!
The house was clean, comfortable and perfectly located. The water views and access were wonderful. The porches were great for relaxing out of the sun. We swam almost every day right off the dock. We were able to rent a pontoon boat at Whitman's Hollow Marina and spent the entire day roaming around the coves. We didn't find any fish, but enjoyed trying. Getting to the grocery was quite a drive, but we only made the trip once. We did venture into Rocky Top one day and had the most incredible BBQ at Coal Creek Smokehouse. We also took a nice walk around Cove Lake State Park. Mike was wonderful to deal with and was very helpful in answering all of questions. If you want to relax and unplug, this is the house for you. Thanks for such a great vacation. :)
Couldn't ask for anything better
House was great,, loved the lake going back in the spring
Loved the place.
Great home very close to the lake. Loved our stay. Will go again.
Our stay from May 23rd to May 29th was perfect! The dock is easily accessible from land and water. We absolutely loved how many chairs were available. There were places to sit at the water, fire pit, and on the porch. The porch became our greeting place in the mornings. We didn’t have any cell service and the internet wasn’t much help but that’s not what we were there for. There wasn’t anything we could’ve needed that wasn’t offered. We have rented houses several years and this was the best house yet. We hope to return in the future. Also the owners were absolutely wonderful to work with. We love your neighbor, Bob! Thanks again !The Millers, Columbus Ohio
