About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
The single-level 35+ year-old rustic house has a cozy den w/ceiling fan, a stone wood-burning fireplace (wood not provided), and a day bed with a trundle. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and antique furniture with a full bath beside it. One room with an antique double bed is on the lakeside and has a view of the lake; the third bedroom also has a double bed and a small windowseat with a cot-sized mattress. There is a full bath between these two bedrooms. A large paved driveway in front of the house has room for several cars and boat trailers. The single car garage is not available.
In addition to a full-service kitchen and a separate laundry room, there is a bright, large sunroom facing the lake with a huge table for those fantastic family meals. Both the den and the sunroom open onto a large deck one-third of which is covered and has a porch swing, a second swing, hooks for a baby swing, and a ceiling fan. A stone-lined dirt path leads through the wooded back yard to a private dock with a ladder, a large umbrella for shade, and boat or wave-runner tie-off cletes. By September, the water has usually gone down enough that the dock is not floating. The water is usually high enough to float the dock again by April 1st. Please call or email to find out the dock situation if your vacation plans are for the late summer or early spring.
Waterside Marina, a very short walk though not visible from the house or dock, has a restaurant and small store. Although the Marina does not accommodate public boat launching, they do allow our renters to launch and drive your boat around to our dock. However, you must park your vehicle and trailer back in our driveway. There is enough paved driveway space to park 3 trucks with trailers. There is a Super Walmart near the interstate exit only seven miles away. Although many of the conveniences are within a few miles, the area is peaceful, wooded, and within a quiet, friendly neighborhood that has been established for over 50 years.
The house is 5 miles from Big Ridge State Park, 7 miles from Norris Dam State Park, and 6 miles from The Museum of Appalachia. Both parks offer wonderful activities including covered picnic areas, volleyball, softball, tennis courts, hiking trails, and a variety of playgrounds. The Chuck Swan Wildlife Management Area, a short boat ride from the house, is an undisturbed 25,000 acre wildlife preserve offering seasonal licensed hunting, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, mountain bike riding, wildlife observation and photography. There are private Horseback Riding businesses and ATV rentals and trails nearby also.
The 'Wood Duck Inn' is extremely accommodating to family gatherings or small groups and is a short drive from Knoxville.

The house is on one story and you can get in the front door and through the house in a wheelchair, and onto the deck. You could not get a wheelchair down to the dock easily and getting a wheelchair into the bathrooms would require ability to transfer. ...moreless

About the owner: We live in Knoxville and have two dogs. Our grown children also live in Knoxville. We have celebrated many birthdays, holidays, and gatherings at our lakehouse.
Why the Owner Chose Andersonville, TN, USA:
We love Norris Lake and have always taken our family there when we have had the chance. We searched for several years for a place on the lake that was fairly level and a short drive from Knoxville, and we found it.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We mainly enjoy the peacefulness of being on the cove, so close to the Marina but not impacted by it. When people go out of the Marina, they usually go the opposite direction from where we are, so our cove is peaceful. Also, the sunset there is beautiful and most of our excellent neighbors are there year round making it a very safe place.
