Property description

Live life to the fullest in this beautiful log cabin nestled in the woods right at the water's edge.

Awaken to a fantastic view of blue sky, magificent southern white pines, and the still waters of Norris Lake. Savor a cup of coffee on the upper deck in the morning while being entertained by the birds and squirrels in the tree canopy. Fish for striped bass off of your private floating dock. Pile the crew into your boat and explore some of Norris Lake's 34,000 acres. Carve it up on glass-like water conditions almost any weekday. Splash and play with the kids in the clean emerald green water right off your private dock in this secluded deep water bay.

Leave the truck in the driveway as you rustle up a home-cooked meal in the fully-equipped kitchen, on the full-size SS gas grill, or even over the fire at the firepit, then eat together as a family. Take the kids on an exciting adventure down the well-maintained trail to explore 'Bear Cave'. Enjoy an evening card game with friends on the beautiful, well-lit, screened-in porch. Recap the day's events in the evening on the paver style patio surrounding the brick-firepit.

You will find this is one of the most enjoyable, stress-free vacations you have ever had. We love our little slice of paradise. We are happy to share it with you, and we thank you for treating it with care.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We built this log cabin ourselves in 1998. The experience of building a log cabin was amazing & we are proud to have a cabin that we built.

Why the Owner Chose Sugar Hollow Marina (La Follette, TN, USA):
Norris Lake is the closest lake to the Northern Kentucky area that allows private docks. We also love how clean Norris Lake is and it also seems to be one of the best skiiing lakes around, with the one possible exception being Dale Hollow.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Our lot is one of the best you'll find on the lake. It's veyr large and is located in a quiet bay behind Sugar Hollow Marina. In most other cabins, you're neighbors are visible to both sides of you of your deck. There is a good mix of natural beauty like the small cave, beautiful trees and wildlife, mixed with modern ammenities like the paver style patio/firepit (which is equipped with lights, hose for putting out the fire at the end of the night, and granite-topped food prep table). There is also a pedal boat for your use that seats 5 people and life jackets for 5 people.
