About Chris Rolf
I am an avid boater, and love my time at Norris Lake. I stayed at several floating homes on trips to Norris Lake. My wife and I decided in January of 2017 that we would make the investment and purchase a floating home that we would use for family vacations, but also allow others to enjoy through renting. My wife and my grown up children and grandchildren all live in the Florence KY area.
Chris Rolf purchased this House in 2017
Why Chris Rolf chose Speedwell
We purchased this particular home due to its' excellent layout and quality construction. We moved the home to Flat Hollow Marina due to the excellent facilities at Flat Hollow. The marina provides excellent service to folks staying in the floating homes. It also is a full service marina with gas, food, boating supplies, bait, and most anything you would need while staying at the lake. One of the biggest benefits we found with a floating home, vs a "home on the hill" was the convenience once you arrived at the house. Tie up your boat to the side of the house. No need to climb 100 stairs to use the restroom, or to get in out of the rain. The house doubles as your dock. Families with children especially love the floating home layout. While some children are swimming and using the water slide, others can be in the house watching a movie, eating lunch, or taking a nap. Everyone is in the same place, rather than some folks being in the house while others are at the dock.
What makes this House unique
Some of the unique benefits of this home are 1. Location within the marina. - This home is in the first row by the no-wake markers. This allows an unobstructed view of the main channel of the lake as other boaters cruise by, a beautiful view of Chuck Swan Wildlife Preserve on the other side of the lake. Lastly a gorgeous view of the sunset in the evening. 2. Newly remodeled. The interior and exterior of the home are completely remodeled in 2017. This includes all bathrooms, bedroom, living spaces inside. Outside includes new roof, siding, shutters, gutters, a gorgeous swim deck addition to the front of the house with a water slide.

Anchors Away is an amazing floating house.
We had a wonderful stay. The house is updated and very clean. The weather was not the best. It rained for some of our stay, so the dryer came in handy. The fact that the house has plenty of room and stocked well with games and stereo system helped us enjoy our stay. Norris lake is big and has many Marinas to chose from. I like more of a beach vacation but after staying here I can't wait to go back.
Heaven on water!
Anchors Away is a wonderful place for a long weekend or a full week. The location being out front provides gorgeous sunsets from the front porch. The house was very clean and comfortable!! Already planning our return!
