2BD (sleeps 6) Literally On The Water With Beautiful Views From Every Window
About Mark Godsey
We are a family of 4 from Cincinnati, who fell in love with Norris Lake and the Shanghai Resort area, and dreamed of having our own floating house here. We rent it out only for a few weeks a year to cover some of the expenses. This is a vacation home that is truly cared for and loved by its owners (rather than owned as just an investment), because it is used by our family most of the time.
Mark Godsey purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Mark Godsey chose La Follette
We fell in love with Shanghai Resort and the cove that the resort is in. There is something about the sunrises and sunsets here. It is just so beautiful. It is rare that a floating cottage comes up for sale here at Shanghai, so when this one came up for sale, and we saw it and realized what we could do with it with renovations, we jumped at the opportunity. We have put more than $35,000 in updates into it since buying it in early 2013 and now it is completely re-done and ready to go.
What makes this Cottage unique
This floating cottage is unique in design and decorated with high-end furnishings. It is in a quiet, calm spot in the harbor.

The property was clean very tiny but spent little time there as we were boating. Would be nice to have a dishwasher. Thanks for a great stay.
Great Vacation Home on Lake Norris
This house was perfect for our family of 5 for a week's vacation. The property was exactly as described and had everything you needed for your stay. The kitchen was well equipped with coffee makers, waffle iron, pans and dishes. The beds were comfortable and the outdoor deck had a big table and swing that was wonderful to relax on. We also made use of the kayaks and grill. The water was beautiful and weather was great. The owner was so helpful and always available for any questions. All in all it was a great vacation and I would highly recommend this property.
A floating slice of heaven.
The floating house is such a fantastic, unique experience. The ultimate in relaxation, views, and water access. House had everything we needed and was very clean. I would rent again in a second.
Loved the floating house and Norris lake
Great stay ON the water
Great little place to stay at ON the water, Shanghai is a nice marina, and this is a great place right at the marina. Mark was great to communicate with and was very responsive. Would stay again.
Shanghai Lucy on Norris Lake
Cute floating house! Great location! Highly recommend!
Great communication with the owner. The house had all the amenities and was just as described. Hope we will be able to visit again.
The Shanghai Lucy is a floating house on Norris Lake, with all the fun and beauty associated with Norris. Norris Lake is in the Cumberland Mountains, with many state parks, hiking trails and an excellent trout stream nearby. Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Gatlinburg, and Pigeon Forge are only 1.5 hours away.
