About Sherri Morgan
3 Reasons Lodge is named for the owners 3 daughters. Sherri, Renee and Tara. We have been visiting Tennessee for 20 years for our family vacations. In 2015 my dad, Jack, showed us this little piece of property that he had purchased on Norris Freeway. It had been a Meade Winery and had set empty for a few years. Upon seeing this little bit of heaven, we became very excited as to its great potential. So we set out turning the winery into our family vacation home. In December of 2015 we decided to share our private getaway with YOU! We have tried to think of everything you will need for a fun, relaxing and memorable getaway. Every detail of this lodge has been designed with maximum enjoyment for our family and yours. Our motto is, "Turning Family Memories in Traditions",this means that we strive to create opportunities for awesome memories to be made that make you and your family want to come back to visit year after year. We hope our family vacation home makes you feel like you "belong here". We encourage you to take in the views, swing on the front porch, roast marshmallows over a fire, relax in the hot tub, watch a movie, start a little competition on the billiards table, eat much, laugh hard and make a memory. Jack, Sherri, Renee & Tara

OK but could be better
There were a few inaccuracies with the description of the house- we have a newborn and the crib was noted as being on the main level - which it was not. The crib was actually in the basement (a steep staircase from the main level- and not ideal for carrying an infant up/down). There was no working air conditioning and the owner did not return texts or Emails concerning the matter. The property manager who was on site offered to purchase fans - but two of the three staying down there had asthma and could not handle circulating fans. She advised we would be hearing from the owner after we told her we needed to cut our stay short a full day because it was 76-78 degrees in the basement at night and not suitable for sleeping. There is also no bathroom on that level (which was noted by other reviews). The bedrooms downstairs are not really legally bedrooms (no finished ceiling or egress to exit in the event of an emergency) and it's a bit unique as the property manager lives on the other side of the basement wall (it is locked and she was super nice) but wasn't really what we were expecting as whoever stays over there is able to simply come through the door and enter the property without notice if desired.
The upstairs was beautifully decorated- but all three bathrooms are right next to each other so the setup is a bit odd.
If the A/C had been working it would have made the stay alot more enjoyable. Also, if there had been some effort to acknowledge the fact that our stay was interrupted due to the fact the A/C was not working when the outside temperature was over 90 degrees the days we were there. I waited to write this review a full 2 weeks as I was told by the property manager that the owner would be contacting me regarding this.
Great week in Rocky Top
Very nice accommodations were clean and well described in the description/photos. Very large house with everything you need!
Beautiful place and so roomy for a family gathering. Very nice game room down stairs.
We had a wonderful family Christmas Day there together! This was a first Christmas getaway for all of us. Just needed something different after my dad passed away because it just isn’t the same without him😢 My grandkids loved the basement gameroom and sleeping area! The only 2 complaints we had was the no bathroom downstairs, which we knew this before we came, and is a must have for us when you have people (especially kids) spending all their time in the game room and sleeping in the rooms down there. They were having to come upstairs a lot and we had a 1 year old we were having to watch very carefully each time that basement door was open! The only other problem we saw was no blinds on the doors and windows in back of house...made watching tv and just sitting in the living room difficult at times. Overall we had a great stay in your beautiful cabin...thank you for sharing it with us❤️ Even tho your two bathrooms were at one end of the house for the 3 bedrooms at the other end of the house we could deal with that but these are some of the options we have to consider when renting a cabin each year. Thank you again.
Great house for family gathering
We had 8 adults and 3 kids in our group and there was plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable. We loved having the open floor plan living room/kitchen/dining area. The ping pong and air hockey tables were well used. The basement rooms were used for the kids so not having as much privacy wasn't a concern. It was December so we weren't outside much but the deck would be amazing in the warm weather. My only criticism would be that the kitchen isn't well stocked with cooking/baking supplies. If you need something specific (like a 13x9 pan) I'd suggest asking the owner if it is provided. Also, one suggestion for improvement is a folding table. We brought a six foot folding table so everyone could sit down and eat together in the dining room.
My family of 13 stayed for Thanksgiving. We had plenty of space! The kitchen/ great room was so big we could comfortably hang out together without feeling cramped.
