Property description

THE SUNDANCE LODGE
This gorgeous luxury log home is located on a pristine cove in the Cove Pointe / Big Creek area on Norris Lake. The lake is literally right out your window.

Updates for 2014: Well the home sure looks beautiful with the new hunter green metal roof. And we added another bedroom in the walkout basement - the home has new kitchen appliances - we are doubling the size of the downstairs deck (May 2015) - and we just added a nice finished fire pit. The pics of the steps to the water show them unfinished but those are all complete now which makes an easy walk to the water even easier. Did I mention the new giant 2 slip dock? And more surprise updates - come and see!

So the home features two main huge decks that over look the crystal clear lake and woods. Outstanding!

The home itself boasts a well furnished great room that is so welcoming and includes a nice large fireplace - so its open, warm, and you will love just relaxing with the whole family. Also a highlight are the excellent dining areas both inside and on the main deck with a wonderful view of the water. You will find that everyone seems to gravitate to that main deck and its so fun to settle in after a long day on the water to laugh and tell stories. The kitchen is fully equipped and up to date including disposal blender and dish washer etc so you can focus on the fun stuff rather than the clean-up. The washer and dryer off the main bedroom offers further convenience.

All of the bedrooms are roomy and tastefully finished with new mattresses - pillows - and fresh bed linens provided. And if you fall asleep on that cumfy couch...well... people might just leave you there! :)

Also - just in case of a rainy day we have over 100 videos and a bunch of puzzles and games. And the house has Wifi but I hope you spend most of your time on the water and don't really need it too much.

The easy walk to the dock and water is a short path through the lightly wooded lot. You may see deer - turtles - squirells - wood peckers - otters - or just about anything on your way. There is ample room for boats at the dock which we replaced just last year. Sequoyah, Shanghai, Whitman Hollow and Star Dust Marinas are near by. In season Friday night Corona / Wing night on the water at Sequoyah is so close and a ton of fun. And Saturday nights at Stardust Marina with a band most weekends is way fun too!

Trust me - this is the part of the lake that you want to be! And the this home is perfect...

Need a boat??? We will deliver a luxury loaded pontoon right to your door - so there's no need to go back and forth from the marina - no need to put up a second deposit - its all right here - our boats are gorgeous - and we will beat any published price on the lake.

Kayaks are also a great option. We offer 2 Versa Boards by Liquid Logic - so you can sit down and paddle - or stand up and paddle which is all the rage! The Kids will love these things! We also have a larger tandem 2 person Kayak perfect for fishing and getting out closer to nature. All are new units and are just way fun! And its so nice when you arent trying to mobilize a whole crew - when you or the kids want to sneak off and have fun - well you just go! This way there is no need for the whole group to organize if the kids or peeps get restless. Daily rates and waiver required.

You just wont find a home this nice in such a beautiful cove on Norris Lake at this price. The easy thing is to just call us for more information. We will consider vacation swaps and bartering too.

Call me today and tell me about your plans!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Well Im one of the owners and I handle all the sales and marketing for this home and a couple of others. Im originally from Dayton - I love my family and friends...and Norris Lake. You can Friend me on FaceBook if you want if you want to know more about me. So lets see...I originally bought the lake house 13 years ago now. I now have 2 great new business partners who bought in on the house in 2009. Elbert Smith and another silent partner. So that's been fun and we all have a blast together. Weve done a ton of updates - too many to list and we now offer kayaks, boat rentals and fishing charters too. All I can say is even tho we work hard - we play pretty hard together too. All good stuff. Well - See ya on the water! Be cool! M

Why the Owner Chose LaFollette:
Well I came to Norris Lake for over 10 years before I bought. So be careful if you look - the next thing you know you will be leaving a closing table rubbing your face saying, '... what did I just do???' H ha!!! I looked at Cumberland originally but its not even close. Norris is the oldest lake in the Cumberland chain of lakes - its also the largest - and the cleanest. And then when I looked all over Norris for the best spot I just fell in love with Cove Pointe. Its perfect. I actually bought the home for sale by owner from a really nice couple who were - of all things - moving to Dayton...? Hmmm. Anyway - raising my 2 boys on the water has been such a blessing. We have boated, swam, fished, climbed, played, and rocked the lake for almost 2 decades. You cant imagine how close you can get to your kids by really having fun with them on the water... Thank you God so much for all those amazing memories. :'] And so now that we are all grown up its great to pull new energy into the lake house with my new partners and their families. I cant believe how well this has worked out.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Well - ok the house is just very cool. I mean its a log home for Gods sake... Its open and bright and just very inviting and homey. And I like it because weve updated everything - thats the big benefit of having good partners because you just stay on top of making sure everything is dialed in. But the lay out is perfect too - great room and main deck when you want to be with the whole clan...downstairs deck, bedrooms, or dock if you want to pull back and have some quiet time. I mean sure...the amenities are endless and you will want for nothing but I often just talk about how the home feels. It feels awesome to be there... But ok if you make me list them - yes it has a lot of updates - all new kitchen appliances - new dishes - new flat screen tvs - new green metal roof - new steps to the water - new double size deck down stairs - new grill - new dock - new boat - new fire fit - I cant even remember everything weve done. LOL And as much as you will hear me talk about how great the home is with all the updates...I probably talk more about the lake rather than the house. I LOVE being in the back of our cove. The water is perfectly calm, warm, and crystal clear and its so private too! Out on the end you get wake which rocks your boats and toys in the water. And if your are swimming in my spot you arent going to get dive bombed by waverunners. So you have all that privacy but you also can be at Sequoyah where the social scene is in 10 minutes. The lake right off of our cove opens up so its not so river like as it is in some parts of the lake. I can go on and on but this area is the best on the lake. Just sayin. :]
