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.

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.
We had a great experience and a wonderful time! The house is equipped with everything you need. The front porch is a great place to take it all in! The only thing we were missing was a flashlight. A really bad storm blew through and we lost electricity for 10 hours. We weren't quite prepared for that but we still made the best of it. We will definitely return for another stay
Perfect getaway. Paddle boat, kayaks. Cabin all was perfect. Close to the Marina but not too close.
Awesome. Caught a lot of fish too.
We had an awesome relaxing weekend. Thanks so much Shanghai Lucy!
We loved The Lucy! Such a nice vibe and as stated, has a great, responsive owner. Our only opinion would be... you definitely need your own boat. We were there at a time when many of the neighboring homes were empty, and it was harder than we thought to hitch a ride to the Lucy, and that was a must with all of our belongings. (We did rent a boat, but did not have it on arrival and had to return it the night before leaving). There is a small paddle boat, but not functional for toting 3 days worth of luggage, food, and drinks.
Otherwise, for regular boaters... this is a great place to stay and enjoy beautiful Lake Norris!
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.
