About Tom Sturm
Tom Sturm is the broker/owner of Tennessee Home Finders (in LaFollette, TN) which sells real estate and manages rental properties... like this one! Tom and his wife, Judy, owned (and sold) a lakehouse in Flat Hollow ten years ago, and since then, they missed having a Lake retreat in Flat Hollow. Ironically, this "diamond in the rough" became available and is located right next door to the one they used to own! After many months of planning, remodeling and renovations, the "Lakeside Lodge" is ready for family, friends and renters!
Tom Sturm purchased this House in 2017
Why Tom Sturm chose Flat Hollow Marina
The Sturms lead very busy lives in Cincinnati, Ohio where Tom is one of the top realtors with Coldwell Banker West Shell (Tom Sturm Group) and always helping someone at church, work or somewhere! So, years ago, when a friend offered their cabin on the Lake to our family as a way to reduce stress and re-connect, we gratefully accepted. As we traveled south on I-75, the Cumberland Mountains began to fill the scenery, and the closer we drove to the Jacksboro/LaFollette area, the more peaceful our souls became. After driving through winding mountain roads dappled with sunshine and breath-taking vistas, we arrived at their "cabin"... a beautiful 5-bedroom lakefront home, full of charm, near Flat Hollow marina. Needless to say, we fell in love with the Lake, the area, and it's people. Since then, we opened the real estate company, Tennessee Home Finders LLC, and continue to make numerous trips to Tennessee, both for business and pleasure with family and friends. Yet no matter how many times we make that trip, Norris Lake and the Cumberland Mountains still hold that magic which captures our minds with their grandeur and fill our souls with peace.
What makes this House unique
Over the years, our family has rented many homes in many areas of Norris Lake, but we intentionally returned to the Flat Hollow area. We found that the friendliness of the property owners, renters and the Marina owners, Gary and Carolyn, (also from Cincinnati :) was something we found comforting. We especially like this quiet cove in a NO WAKE zone so our kids can jump off the dock without fear, and we prefer the sounds of Nature and laughter instead of roaring speed boats with loud stereos. We enjoy the smooth channel waters here (great for enjoying water sports) versus the heavy traffic in the main channel. We also enjoy being close to Flat Hollow Marina (and other marinas) for convenience, eating out or just walking down for an ice cream. But our absolute favorite things are... sitting on the deck every morning with a cup of coffee, listening to loons and crows call as the mist rises from the Lake... hanging out with friends on the deck after a great day on the Lake or delicious dinner from the grill... and stargazing from the upper deck and being awestruck as shooting stars streak against the velvet black, Tennessee sky!

We are in a NO WAKE, quiet cove which is great for fishing, jumping off the dock or enjoying the quiet! We're also just a short hike to Flat Hollow Marina, where you can find everything from food & ice cream to gas, boats/supplies and souvenirs. At the Lodge, we have fishing poles, ski vests, noodles, a corn hole set and lots of amenities to help make your stay comfortable and fun! There's also a first aid kit and our Guest Comfort Kit in case you forgot to pack something! CHURCH? For Sunday worship, we found two churches our family enjoys: The Harbor in LaFollette (behind Pizza Hut) on Hwy 63 http://www.theharbortn.org/ or The Hanger A small gathering of friendly folks who meet in a hanger at Deerfield Resort airfield. If we can help you in any way, feel free to call or text Melanie!
