Beautiful floating home. New rental. 3 bedroom, 2 bath. Directly on the Lake!
About Bill Elam
Jenni and I built our dream floating house a few years ago, after many years of renting homes and condos around the lake. We decided this area of the lake was the place to build our vacation property, only we took it one step further. We built our house ON THE LAKE! We knew we wanted a turn key property that didn't have the all the down sides of lake front living, misquitos (there are none being directly on the lake). VERY FEW stairs to climb and not having direct boat access. Now we simply moor our boat on our back patio. We can open up our back doors and just steps beyond is our spacious patio, or the screened in porch AND most importantly the calm lake cove! The family absolutely loves swimming and floating on rafts right off the patio. We love having our boat and jet ski tied right up against the house. Super convenient to come back for a quick lunch or loading up more ice in the cooler. We can paddle board or fish right off our patio, its just the perfect location and ideal lake front getaway!
Bill Elam purchased this House in 2013
Why Bill Elam chose Rocky Top
Unlike all the other floating homes, ours is connected via a pier that leads to shore. This is so convenient because you don't need a boat to access the house. You're only a short walk to your car. All modern brand new appliances, washer/dryer, granite counter tops and pottery barn furniture make this an ideal place to enjoy with family and friends. *** Please note. This is an upscale property with neighbors on either side. Please be respectful and do not trespass and use their lake items.
What makes this House unique
You're directly on the lake. NO steep grades or multiple stairs to climb! Especially great when you just want to come back for lunch or refresh your cooler. Just pull your boat up and you'll be right back on the lake again. Also ideal for lounging on the raft in front of our large outdoor deck. Enjoying the warm crystal clear Norris lake water. The screened in patio is so comfortable and relaxing, even during a rain shower!

We had a nice time but neighbors should be more flexible and tolerable as it is our vacation too and paid alot of money. A radio on past 11pm is not that big of a deal when staying for 4 days. The neighbors are the owners family so u feel like your being watched at all times. Not necessary.
If you want to relax right on the waters edge, this is the place!
One drawback is we had no internet service. Hot spot did not work.
Perfect place for those hard workers that need down time.
Great house and beautiful lake
This is our second time to this house. We absolutely love the location and that it is floating on the lake, (yet accessible by dock). It is beautifully decorated and comfortable. We are already looking forward to returning next year!
House was beautiful and the perfect place for our family vacation!! We will return!
Loved the floating house!
Very relaxing and peaceful. Had everything we needed. Owner was great to work with. Would stay there again.
Slice of heaven
Beautiful upscale floating home neighborhood. The house was immaculate and beautifully decorated. Plenty of room for our six kids. Could not have asked for anything else. Reasonable rental rates at the marina and great neighbors. One of our top five vacations and we vacation a lot!
