About Jeanne Ward
Norris Lake has been part of the Wilber's and Ward's family for over 25 years. We decided in 2013 to build our own lake home for our ever growing families and for guests to rent and enjoy all the great experiences that summer and fall on Norris Lake brings. Our goal has always been to make this home family friendly for great memory building. We are from Troy and Tipp City, Ohio were a large body of water is hard to find. So south we went and discovered this beautiful lake. We are involved in education - teaching and administration and know the importance that family, friends, and extended family can make in children's lives. We hope you will find this house well thought out to meet your family's needs. We have been blessed and hopefully your family will be too with a great time on the lake. As we like to say, "Go Jump in the Lake and relax!"
Jeanne Ward purchased this House in 2013
Why Jeanne Ward chose La Follette
Both families originally started out with other lake locations on Norris. We realized that we wanted a location not so busy but close enough to marinas to enjoy food and ice cream and to gas all our boats and toys. We found this gem of a location in 2012. At that time we were the first people to build on this beautiful location in 30 years. The owner did not want to develop until we inquired. How blessed to be the first to build here in all these years. We wanted to keep it a secret, but something so good was bound to get out. The remaining lots are sold and our small development of 8 homes makes a great neighborhood. It is nice not to have all the congestion of a big development. We feel like we are in a state park with woods and lake to enjoy.

This home has the perfect floor plan and large deck for grilling and relaxing overlooking the lake. Only issue going this late in the fall was lake level was 14.3 feet below full pool making dock accessibly difficult for seniors.
Fun Trip! Great Place!
Just spent a long weekend with my family and it was great!! The house was clean with nice furnishings. The kitchen was well stocked and it was open to living room & dining room. The deck was great & had lots of seating. The walk to the water wasnt bad but it is a little steep. There are just a few things that we had an issue with. The grill did not have a gas tank so I called owner & when they called me back we had already just cooked food inside. He ended up calling back to say we could get one from neighbors grill. Another issue are the steps on front porch & bottom back deck. They are narrow and they give a little when u walk so just be careful. Also, on the directions it says to turn at Family Dollar but it is a Dollar General. The mileage on the directions was very helpful. It was a beautiful home & would stay there again!!
Amazing home. Amazing vacation.
This property was wonderful. Our vacation was nothing short of amazing. Everyone from the oldest adult to the youngest child enjoyed our stay. The home is large enough for a crowd and to have ‘alone’ time but also small enough to be together as a family !
We are thankful for our stay.
So glad your family stay was great. We love to hear how families have enjoyed the lake and our home.
Great place for our family reunion!
Nothing but positive reviews from my family members on the house, location, and amenities! Relatively easy access to the water and the house was spacious enough to accommodate multiple small families. We had a great time with the ping pong table to include a tournament at the end of the week! We played games around the dining room table that was large enough to accommodate the group. All cookware was available to include pans of multiple sizes, etc.
The only points of caution include: drive to the house (last 2 miles) was a little confusing hence the detailed directions from the owner (thank you!), the A/C was a little temperamental - surprisingly the downstairs was warmer at night than the upstairs, showers tended to be a little slippery, and plan to just unplug from electronics b/c the internet was spotty. All that said, I would certainly stay here again! Those are minor points compared to all the goodness this lake home has to offer! Thank you for a great stay!
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on your stay. Glad you had a great week. We love families to make memories!!
So much fun and perfect for large gatherings
Clean,large and perfect home.
Best Lake House Ever
Our family had an amazing time at this property. It is easily the best lake house we have ever stayed at. The layout of the home is great and provides easy areas to gather while providing privacy in the four master suites. Grandparents and small grandkids all appreciated the easy slope and paved path to the lake. The view from the house and dock are amazing as you look out to an undeveloped and beautiful part of the lake. Hope to return in the future!
