This home has been professionally designed to be the perfect lake house retreat. It is truly one of a kind and has become the topic of conversation on this part of the lake. Be one of our first guests to see what this home has to offer and why you will not want to stay anyplace else on the lake, ever.

About Kelly Simpson
Don and I have been married for 25 years and have 3 teenaged children. We LOVE going to Norris Lake and lived in Knoxville for 8 years, so the south side of the lake is our favorite! We can get to downtown Knoxville in 30 minutes to dine on Market Square and be in West Knoxville in 40 minutes for great shopping. Since we are now in Cincinnati, we wanted to have a place at Norris. We started with a 2BR/2BA condo at Waterside and came to realize that it just wasn't big enough. This home gives us so much room to bring family and friends and we love all of the lake activities from boating and wake boarding to paddle boarding and jet skiing. Being so close to Stardust gives us options for dining and entertainment and being in a community makes us feel safe. We are loving our new home, its ideal location and hope to retire there in the future!

Summit House: Best vacation hands down!!!
This was the best family vacation we have ever had, no questions asked! It's hard to put into words how magnificent this home is and how amazing the location is. The Andersonville area is absolutely beautiful to start with, the people in this area are very nice and so helpful, and the lake is breath taking! When I think of Andersonville I think of southern hospitality at it's finest. The owners Kelly and Don are incredible people and the community they have around their home is just as nice and helpful as they are. We had some minor questions about the Direct- TV and Don was on it! And got it resolved that day. But I assure you watching TV will be the last thing on your mind at this house. Kelly answered questions for us as well, gave us suggestions on places to go, and things to do if we wanted to get out of the house. The dock area is amazing, if you enjoy fishing and swimming I assure you this is the house for you! The dock is fully equipped with a diving board, easy ladder to get in and out of the water, a boat lift, and lots of room to fish, sun bathe, or just enjoy the view. The home is close to a marina which is great, but they do not sell fishing license, but Wal-Mart does! Wal-Mart was about 20 minutes away and there was another cute market about 10 minutes away. The house was made for families! The kitchen is amazing. It is the best stocked rental house we have ever stayed at. They have several different types of appliances, dishes, baking dishes, and several spices. The master bedroom and bathroom is amazing! The whole family just raved about how comfortable all the beds were. Don't let me forget about the decks on this home. We practically lived on the top deck! Stunning views, fans to keep you cool, awesome grill, and great eating areas out there as well. I loved this top deck a lot too because there are no stairs, its completely contained. So if you have children it is a great place for them to play and you know they cannot get down to the water. The top deck and kitchen have sonos speakers, which we thoroughly enjoyed. They spared no expense on this home. I work in design and I see all the work, detail, and love that was poured into making this home amazing. I could go on and on. I promise you will not regret renting this home. Our family will be back.
Perfect location for a family vacation
It was the perfect setting on Norris Lake. The home had all of the amenities needed. Furniture very comfortable for all ages. We loved the large kitchen for preparing meals together. The outside dock with lift made it easy to have our boat there. The kids spent hours swimming off the dock and enjoying the diving board.
We left Summit House with nothing but amazing memories!
This was our third trip to Norris Lake so we're familiar with the area. The lake is huge! So much to explore and this was the first time staying in Andersonville. We preferred this part of the lake over La Follette where we stayed the last 2 years. The area seemed more scenic with less boat traffic, however, if you're up for a boat trip you can get to some pretty cool spots (cliffs to jump off, ropes to swing in) and marinas. We have kids ranging from ages 3 to 16 and they all had so much fun. The whole trip was incredibly adventurous.
The house.. WOW! Summit House was hands down the best home we've rented. There were delighters at every turn from the beautiful kitchen and great room, the lovely porch, boys and girls dorm like rooms and bathrooms, 2 laundry rooms, to even the placement of the outlets! The home fit all 16 of us very comfortably. The home owners were extremely friendly and accommodating. Don't be offended if they ask you some questions before accepting you as a renter. This home is brand new and they're looking for renters who are going to care for and love it as much as they do - and rightly so!
We typically do a Norris Lake trip every other year and we plan to return in 2020. If you're thinking about booking Summit House, do it now!
WOW WOW WOW. We can't say a bad word. Location is perfect. Honestly the best location on the lake. House is truly On Point! pics do it justice and, in person, it is clean and beautiful!!! The DOCK is awesomazing!!! The boat lift was perfect for our MasterCraft X30 and the additional slip just fit the other families Tri Tune perfectly. The dock diving board a big hit with the teens!
Kelly is attentive and helpful in every way.
Kitchen is well supplied and one would be a fool for complaining about this beautiful space to vacation on Lake Norris!
Well equipped, good layout for multiple families
Summit House has lots of impressive details (listed below,) was very clean & well maintained, and the owner was very responsive to our questions ahead of time and day of arrival. We loved both the location on the lake and on land: no long ,no-wake zone to start your ride AND no boats zooming by as you try to swim off the dock, plus decent roads driving in, easier to find, close to boat ramp/marina. We've been renting houses at Norris for almost 10 years and this one is one of the best.
Items we loved:
Kitchen: very well equipped kitchen, HUGE pantry, plenty of counter space
Layout: great for large groups, multiple families. Size of decks & the furnishings were a nice plus. Plenty of bathrooms. Laundry rooms on two levels was a great bonus.
Dock: THE nicest dock we have had at a rental. Very nice concrete steps and walkway to get to dock. Plenty of space to tie up boats (we had 3, but could have fit 4,) large sunning area with numerous chairs, minimal bugs/cobwebs, easy to get back to when those pop-up thunderstorms move in, industrial grade (aka STURDY) ladder & diving board. Paddle boards were a hit with our group.
It was wonderful, just what our family needed.
