Sharps Chapel cabin description

2 year old lakefront cabin 1/4 mile back a secluded cove off the main channel. Complete and ready to rent. Visit for more info!
Our goal was to build one of the nicest rental homes on Norris Lake. We used some of the best materials and furnishings available to make this a first class experience for our guests. Luxuries such as SLEEPING FOR 18+ ON BEDS, INSTANT HOT WATER HEATER (ENDLESS HOT WATER!!!), a separate heating and air conditioning unit on all three main floors, and the list of luxuries goes on and on...

There are so many great things about our home -- see more photos and details at our website listed below. One of the best things about this part of the lake is that it is quiet. Glass-like water is commonplace. THE CHOPPY WATER & BOAT TRAFFIC ON THE DEERFIELD SIDE OF THE LAKE is almost nonexistent on this side.

The home is as close to the water as any home on Norris and is just a short walk down to the dock. It has a very private cove with only a few homes -- none of which are visible from ours. It is easily accessible and boats can launch for free nearby. There is also an area to park your boat trailer on site.

The dock has a huge swim platform and room for at least 2 boats. The cove is very calm and great to swim in for families. It is about 75' deep in the summer and has year round water (~45' winter depth).

TOP FLOOR -- 1 queen room which sleeps 4 and 2 additional large bedrooms -- one with a king bed and the other a queen. There is also a great hardwood floor 'loft' and a private balcony as well as a full, jetted, whirlpool bath.

MAIN FLOOR -- Full kitchen, large great room, master bedroom with king bed and private whirlpool jetted tub, 1/2 bath, and laundry room. Off the main floor is a very large 10'x45' deck -- 1/2 of which is screened in and fully furnished. A large gas grill is also available on that level.

LOWER LEVEL -- 6 bed bunk room and 1 additional bedroom with a king bed. A full bar with an additional refrigerator, ice machine, large screen TV, and a fully furnished living area including a full bath is also on the lower level. There is a large 10'x45' covered deck (covered by the deck above) off this level.

BASEMENT -- Combination Bumper Pool Table with Poker Top or Dining Top, 10' long hardwood shuffleboard table, and air hockey. Just outside is a luxury 6 person hot tub.

OUTSIDE -- Along with the hot tub there is a fire pit between the house and the lake. A very easy walk down to the lake and boat dock. The boat dock has a ramp with stairs so that the ramp will follow the stairs as the water level fluctuates.

LAKESIDE -- This is truly one of the most peaceful coves on Norris Lake. There is a little point that jets out and protects our dock and keeps the cove very calm. The home sits on a 5 acre lot with nearly 1/4 mile of shoreline with plenty of privacy.

2 PERSON KAYAK now available free of charge to guests

DOCK -- 3 slips plus a very large swim platform. We will have room for a minimum of 2 boats for our guests.

NEARBY -- We are located about 10 minutes (5 miles) by boat from 33 Bridge (Beach Island Marina) and very close to Island F. There is plenty of open water, private coves, or islands to explore just minutes away by boat. For golfers Woodlake GC is a short drive away. The closest full-service marina is Beach Island Marina or Hickory Star -- both about 10 minutes (5 miles) by boat. BUBBA BREW'S restaurant and bar are a lot of fun with live music and karaoke in season. Cumberland Gap is ~30 miles away for those interested in some great hiking and sightseeing.

THIS IS TRULY ONE OF THE BEST VACATION EXPERIENCES YOU WILL EVER HAVE. We have personally rented at Norris Lake for several years before deciding to build our own dream home. We are very familiar with the lake as well as the other rental properties and can assist you in finding the perfect place for your next vacation.

We hope you choose our place and please do not hesitate to contact us for additional information. We will update the site with new photos as we progress so keep posted but don't wait too long to reserve your stay. The good lakefront homes get booked up very quickly.
