About Ronald & Jane Lammers
We live in Ohio and find Tennessee picture perfect all year round. One of our favorite things we do is have morning coffee on the upstairs patio and admire the view. It never seems to get old looking at the mountainous landscape.
Ronald & Jane Lammers purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Ronald & Jane Lammers chose La Follette
This property is right next door to our other cabin, Captains Cove. The cove is quiet, no boat traffic, and the view is outstanding.
What makes this Cabin unique
We are now renting a 20' pontoon,24' pontoon and 24' triton which is there when you get there, no pick up or return hassle. Paddle 2 surf boards, 2 kayaks, 6 X 16 ft. Lily pad, and tube for rent also at reasonable rates to our renters.

Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
The house is fantastic. Spacious and clean. On a nice quiet Cove. Outstanding communication with owners. Highly recommend.
Excellent property! Our friends and family had a great time over memorial day weekend and both the owners and property manager were very helpful! We certainly would love to stay here again!
This house is great for a large group. It is spacious and the 9 bathrooms make a big difference with a lot of people. We really enjoyed being in a cove and not on the main lake where there is more waves.
Our cabins have 9 spacious bedrooms with a private bathroom attached to each one which gives our renters the freedom to leave their personal items out all the time, no sharing your personal space.
Our location is in a quite cove where there is no boat traffic, close to the jumping bridge and Sugar Hollow Marina. We rent pontoons, kayaks, surf paddle boards and a lily pad.
Come join the fun!
A wonderful home and beautiful setting
We have loved Jane's home on Lake Norris for our youth leaders' retreat for several years now! It's been well maintained and is always clean and ready for our stay. Jane takes excellent care of our group!
Glad you always find our home well maintained and ready for you.
Loved it. We brought our children and grandchildren with us (21 total). Everyone has a blast. The house had plenty of run to accommodate our large family, large kitchen too. I definitely recommend this house to any large group.
Glad there was fun for all!
Wonderful house and lake!
We loved the house, which had plenty of rooms--and beds--for everyone (18 people this year). The kids, mostly teenagers, really enjoyed tubing behind the pontoon boat and playing with the "water toys," kayaks, paddleboards, and a "water lily," a huge strip of light-weight foam that floated on the water even with several big kids playing/wrestling on it. The kids also loved the 2-story slide, jumping off the top level of the dock, and just swimming around in the lake. Being back on a cove meant almost no boats passing by, which was great for the swimmers, etc. The kitchen was well-equipped, with lots of dishes and two dishwashers. I'm thinking about buying a set of the ceramic-lined pots and pans that were at the house!
However, I would strongly suggest adding a railing, at least on one side, to the three steps leading from the parking area into the house. Stairs without railings are dangerous for us old folks.
And I hated trying to get my compact, front-wheel-drive car up the road/driveway to the next road (the only way out). Every time I tried it, my tires skidded and spun on the loose gravel. I had to back up and get a running start. The heavier vans and those with 4-wheel-drive had an easier time of it, but it was a struggle for the smaller cars.
We have had family vacations in different areas of the nation for the past 22 years, but this is the first location where there were no restaurants to go to for lunch--except the marinas, which were at least 20 minutes away by boat and at least that long (and a scary trip) by car on narrow, twisting, hilly roads. Of course, we could have driven into LaFollette (about 20 minutes) and stopped at Wendy's or McDonalds or Pizza Hut, but we had hoped for something better.
Still, Jane Lammers and her housekeeper, Janice, couldn't control the lack of restaurants, but they did everything they could to make our visit as pleasant and fun as possible. It was nice not to have to deal with an impersonal rental agency. Many thanks to them both! Readers, I hope you all enjoy your vacation at Pirate's Cove as much as we did!
We are glad you enjoyed our cabin with plenty of room and private bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen from large appliances to small utensils. Being situated in a quite cove is ideal for swimming, kayaking or just floating in a tube.
We welcome you back anytime.

Cabin sits on Norris Lake waterfront. Walk out your cabin to double decker dock with upper deck slide and jumping gate. Situated in a cove so there is no boat traffic and no wake. About 3 minutes from the jumping bridge and 10 minutes from Sugar Hollow Marina.
