"Awesome floating home, (home does not move, very well secured). The house is better than what the pictures show i.e front porch is much larger, plenty of room. Neat outside lights and also and underwater light off the front porch. Inside of home was nicely appointed. Separate ice maker is much appreciated. Furniture was in great condition and although we did not use the upstairs it was very nice as well. Everything worked and you can tell the owners pay attention to detail. Beautiful area i.e mountains, water etc."

"Sommer Retreat is a great vacation home. We had a group of 12 and everyone had their own space. Our twenty-something aged kids and friends took over the lower two levels and the 'grown ups' had the upper levels. There was plenty of space for cooking, eating and being together as well as plenty of space to 'get away'. The decks on each level offer great outdoor relaxation. The deck off of the kitchen is where we spent many a morning with coffee and breakfast and evenings relaxing. The stairs to the lake are steep, but manageable. Access to the lake was also accommodating. The water is wonderfully warm and we spent much time swimming and floating. We mostly ate in, as eating out with this many people is expensive...there was plenty of room to cook, and the 'kids' pitched in with cooking as well. All in all it was a great family vacation, the home is beautiful and I would recommend Sommer Retreat to anyone."

"We gathered family from three surrounding states to this great get away in Tennessee. The house has plenty of room for everyone to spread out, and we enjoyed our time together. The kitchen was truly an asset, with two ovens for cooking, 5 burners on the stove and a microwave, and an extra refrigerator downstairs for storage. Our favorite time was having everyone gather at the breakfast bar in the morning for a cup of coffee or juice and conversation while several in the kitchen were preparing the meal. It was a quick transition to serving bar, and gathering at the large dining table. Our 90 yr old mother was more than comfortable here, and able to navigate the main floor easily. I am sure that the amenities are an even greater plus in the summer months when you would utilize the dock."

"Sundance was perfect for my family, we had 3 kids and 6 Adults. We had everything we needed and more. Having our boat delivered on the day we arrived was a bonus! Mark did a fantastic job making sure we were well informed on directions, house-lake location, and so much more. He had a wealth of information to offer us. Thank you! The house was settled in a private cove with very little boat traffic. Most of our time was spent right off the dock! Pros about the place-Location on the lake. According to one of the Marina's "Best part of the lake." I would have to agree, the water was amazing! I am a Montana girl and have seen many beautiful areas out West, but Norris Lake really impressed me!! Fishing for us was not good, but because the lake is very deep I am pretty sure you need to know the lake better than what we did.
Thank you for helping us make our vacation perfect!"
