LaFollette house description

Welcome to Ray's Place at Norris Lake, the Marth’s Summer home on Big Creek in Norris Lake. A great family getaway.

Take the time to read our guests reviews. This is a special place. Come visit.

THE HOUSE:

A beautiful constructed home completed for rent the Summer of 2011. The house is approx. 3000 sq ft, with two large decks overlooking majestic views of Norris lake. With sunset views of open water and the Smoky Mountains in the distance, you will create memories for a lifetime. The house is an open floor plan, built as a lake house with big windows and doors opening to the water and the sunsets.

Four bedrooms, with two masters bedrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs, an additional queen size bedroom and a bunk room creates and inviting format for two or three families. The house has beds for 12 and large great room for few air mattresses if needed. Amenities; gas grill, washer/dryer and fire pit.

Location:

If you like still open water, beautiful trees and gorgeous views, this house is for you. We have a two slip covered dock with a large swim platform ( 12 x 32). With half of it covered, so it is great if you love the sun or need a little shade. One slip will always be available for renters, with room to tie up an additional two boats if needed, or slips are available at nearby Sequoia and Whitman Hollow Marinas.

Our home is in the Big Creek area, positioned directly on the opposite side of the lake from Windsor Point. It is a nicely treed lot on a quiet street, ready for a rustic retreat, or the privacy for you to bring your Party to Norris lake. We are a short 17 min drive off I-75, much closer to 75 than the congestion of Deerfield and far less water traffic. Did I say Far, as in way less water traffic than the popular Deerfield area.

Arrangements:

The House is available for rental at a fee of $425 per night with a minimum of three night rental. $2975 per week. Rentals are weekly only in July and August. Off season, $350 per night, minimum of three night rental. A security deposit of $500 is due upon reservation. Taxes and cleaning fee($175) are additional. If you have any questions or have an interest in rental, please call.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: My wife Kristi and I and our family have fallen in love with Norris lake. We are excited to share our home with you. The focus is family and friends and good times shared. We live in Cincinnati with our four children and plan to spend many great times at Norris lake in our new home. We hope you enjoy it too.

                  Why the Owner Chose LaFollette:
                  We chose this lot and house for a few reasons. We loved the amazing views of sunsets and open water not available on cove locations. We love the reduced congestion of Big Creek area versus the over crowded, congression or the Deerfield area. We created a welcoming home, with one big great room open to the kitchen, huge decks overlooking great views of the lake and a short walk (NO Steps) sidewalk to the water.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Big water, an awesome dock, with a covered slip for the renter. Close proximity to Whitman Hollow and Sequoya Marinas. A beautiful home, nicely appointed and ready for you to create memories of a lifetime.
