"This property is very nice and well maintained. The layout of the house is excellent! Large kitchen and common area upstairs with a nice kitchen on the lower level as well. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom. The dock is very nice with composite lumber decking ( no splinters). We would definitely rent this property again."

"Our family and close friends just completed our stay at the Big Dipper and the accommodations were ideal. The view from the kitchen, onto the lake, is the best in the cove and the layout was perfect as each family had their own floor. The kitchen was spectacular with two dishwashers and a dining table big enough to accommodate 20 people. The three refrigerators came in handy as did the full-size washer and dryer.
We rented two boats and two wave runners and the dock was perfect with two covered spots for the boats and two floating platforms to park the wave runners. The jacuzzi was very nice after a full day on the lake and the game room kept the kids occupied. The house has NO shortage of TV’s and everyone had there own bed which is difficult to find when housing 12-15 people.
Access to the jumping bridge, proximity to Sugar Hollow Marina and Shanghai Marina made for added convenience. Although secluded and private, the gated community is close to town where we were able to shop for groceries and daily essentials. The owner was great to work with and was very accommodating. In addition to the great memories, we spent valuable time together with our friends and family which made for the perfect get-a-way. We are already talking about our next trip."

"We met some friends here on our way back from Florida and it was exactly what we were looking for. Extremely clean, very spacious, great kitchens, great bed rooms and great hot tub and fire pit! Everything was exactly as advertised. We will definitely be coming back in the future! Thank you John!"

"We were very lucky to find this little gem on VRBO. Perfect location on Norris Lake, so quiet and peaceful! The views out the large picture window in the family room made us feel like we were in a tree house, and the multiple decks allowed perfect views of the lake. Having its own dock made it really nice, to fish from, swim off of, and keep our boat, and also a great place to have morning coffee! The air conditioning units and ceiling fans kept everything really comforable inside. We really enjoyed being lulled to sleep by the tree frogs every night! It was very nice also to have the owner close by, she was very attentive to our needs, and we enjoyed getting to know her. The fire pit was a huge plus too, we had a fire almost every night. Not one of us wanted to leave! Norris Lake + Onawim = Complete Relaxation!"
