ALLEN SIMPSON purchased this house in 2000

Why ALLEN SIMPSON chose Norris Lake

I have made this house what I would expect in a vacation rental. People go on vacation to spend time with friends and family but also like to have their own space at times. This house is set up with a bedroom and bathroom on each floor. It also has everything you will need for entertaining. Cable TV and a great stereo system with speakers on the deck and at the boat dock.

What makes this house unique

House has a private setting with no other boat docks next to it.

Located in a cove with a launch ramp minutes away.

Plenty of parking for boats and jet skies. Outside bar on lower covered deck.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Allen, just wanted to shoot you a email thanking you for the wonderful week we had at your house! You definitely have a 5 star place once again THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!

Amazing rental

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from another fantastic vacation at this beautiful home. We return every year because this rental offers everything we need. I would absolutely recommend this house to future renters but not before securing our spot for next year which we do during our stay! I have reviewed this home multiple times because it continues to top everything including yearly updates including additional bedroom and covered lower deck which allowed my family to sit outside as a storm passed over. Allen, thank you once again for allowing us to stay in your home. We all get busy with our lives and this one week yearly enables us the opportunity to slow down and enjoy our time with our children and grandchildren.

Very Nice Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at three other lake houses on Norris Lake and this is by far the best one. We have already made arrangements to stay again next year. This house was perfect for getting away and relaxing. We had 8 family members on this vacation and one dog. We all had plenty of room. We enjoyed the nice views from all 3 of his decks. This house is super clean! You cannot tell that any animals have stayed in this house. It doesn't have an animal odor. The kitchen was well equipped with every appliance and cookware that you would need. The furnishings were very nice and comfy. I got the best sleep on this vacation. We all agreed that the beds are very comfortable.

We enjoyed drinking coffee on the deck every morning looking at the amazing views and then walking our dog around the neighborhood.

It was easy to back the boat trailer down his driveway.

The covered dock provided complete coverage of our boat. There were hardly any waves due to being located in an area that doesn't get much traffic. This was nice because we were able to use the owner's kayak without any problems. We swam off of the dock and believe me if you like to fish there are plenty of fish near his dock. The owner also has a paddleboat but we didn't get a chance to take it out.

We would spend most of the day on the lake. Twin Cove Marina is located not too far from this house and they provide entertainment on the weekends and they have good food. We also like to go to Springs Dock, Shanghai, and Bubba Brew's Sports Bar on the lake. This house is located 5 minutes off of interstate 75 and it is close to town if you need to pick up groceries.

We enjoyed everything this house had to offer. Allen was exceptionally easy to work with and so welcoming!

We highly recommend this home!

Fantastic lake rental

  • 5 of 5

My family has been coming to Norris lake for over 20 years and we have always had a great time but this rental kicks things up a notch or two. The owner of this rental is constantly updating this home and continuously gives back to the people who rent from him by doing so. All needs are met here from the boat dock to the privacy of the bedrooms and each with their own bathroom, the kitchen with everything and the beautiful living room with floor to ceiling windows offering a gorgeous view. The location is a winner too in a secluded cove with very low boat traffic. The owner is easy to get in touch with if you need anything but it is likely you will not. We consider ourselves frequent flyers as it would be hard to top this home!

Best House on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Wow is best word to describe this house. The owner has left nothing to be desired. My family was depressed at the end of our stay but knowing we will be returning next year made it easier. Thank you Allen for letting us use your fabulous home with many updates-our favorite was the dock where we spent countless hours watching our grandkids swim. This home is spacious,imaculate,warm and inviting and the 101 steps did not bother us because we all need the exercise.If you stop here on your Norris Lake adventure you'll never look for anything else-and that's a promise!!!!

This place is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved the lake house. We had plenty of room, with space to move around. The kids 10 & 11 had plenty to do, with games, TV, boating and swimming. I would love to live there year around! The furnishing were excellent, everything we needed was there. Everyday we had a good cardio workout going up and down the stairs at boat dock, 101 steps one way! Took a few days but, it got easier. The house makes up for all the steps, we would stay again, the place is beautiful! Also enjoyed the private location, we had neighbors but, you didn't even know they are there! Loved it!! Want to say thanks for a wonderful week, weather was great, and the owner of this property is awesome! Thanks again.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your vacation. Having a kayak, paddle boat and covered boat dock has been great for guests to enjoy. Thanks for the comment on the furnishings I do my best to keep the furnishings up to date. When you were vacationing this year the lake level was about 8 feet low.TVA controls the level of the lake. Not sure why they don't leave more water in the lakes. Last year they had record rainfall this year the lake is the lowest it's been since 1999. This results in about 13 more steps. Some of the rentals do not have enough steps for low lake levels and people have to climb over the rocks. Thanks for the review and taking good care of the house.
