About the property

Summer is booking fast. Enjoy the best at Norris Lake Shore House on beautiful Norris Lake!

Spacious tastefully decorated lake front home (formerly known as Once in a Blue Moon Bed and Breakfast) nestled into a wooded hillside on the shores of spectacular Norris Lake, has everything you need for a great Norris Lake vacation. Get ready for fun, boating, fishing, relaxing and making wonderful vacation memories.

This 3-story lake front house is a large groups' dream house. It features 4 large master suite bedrooms each with a king size bed and its own full master bathroom. All bedrooms give you beautiful view of the lake. One bathroom features Italian marble splendor, a two-person Jacuzzi and a large walk-in shower.

The open floor plan provides plenty of room for everyone and amenities abound for you to have a memorable get away. The large fully equipped kitchen has seating at the peninsula as well as adjacent seating at the large oak table and chairs. This opens up to the living room featuring a gas fireplace, TV and ample seating. Expansive windows and huge decks off the main floor and one on the lower level and one located at the shore line offer enticing views of both the woods and the lake.

The lower level has 2 spacious bedrooms (each with king size beds and full bathrooms) and sports a pool table, kitchenette, queen pull-out sofa. Bunk bed with full size futon and foldout beds provided.

There are only 21 steps to a gentle incline to the dock. There is a dedicated driveway with ample parking, along with a private covered one-slip dock with the ability to tie another on the side. The dock also includes a swim platform, 3 wave runner ports, 2 kayaks and a paddle boat to add to your lake experience. Enjoy taking in the lake view from a waterfront deck just a few steps from the dock. And, at the end of the day, sit around the fire pit to roast marshmallows and share your events of the day.

Not in the mood for cooking, then you can enjoy waterfront dining at the following marinas: Sequoyah, Whitman Hollow , Shanghai, Norris Dam and Stardust. Boat and wave runner rentals are also available at the marinas. Boat ramps close to the property are: White Bridge, Norris Dam and Whitman Hollow.

Great house, very clean, great dock for swimming

The house was perfect for 7 adults and 2 kids. We swam, fished, and boated all day long. Great trip!

Perfect place for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time at Norris Lake. The home was perfect for our large group and met everyone’s expectations. The views are beautiful and the home is spotless, plus Barbara and Allan were so great to work with! We are all looking forward to visiting again next summer!

Beautiful House in Prime Location

  • 4 of 5

The house itself is beautiful. It is extremely clean and modern. The lake dock is great for swimming and the owners provided kayaks and paddle boat as well. There is only one stair case down to the lake with about 20 steps and then the rest is a gradual concrete path. This was a real plus for the older members of our party.

The owners Barbara and Allan were very kind and answered all my questions quickly either through email or text. We travel to Norris Lake at least twice a year and my family and I absolutely love it. This is our first time staying at this property and we would not hesitate to stay here again.

The one small downfall was there was no washer and dryer which made for a small inconvenience. After returning in the evening after a all day of boating with very wet towels and having damp towels in the morning was my only complaint. But all in all a wonderful place on a beautiful lake.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your terrific review! We try very hard to make your stay at our house an enjoyable and relaxing one and glad you found it to your liking. We agree with your comment about the stairs and path. We, too, find it easy to navigate from the house to the fire pit and to the dock. With respect to providing a washer and dryer, we appreciate your comment. We will give it serious consideration. However, we are on a septic system and at time having 12+ folks staying and using water for dishes, showers, etc., we are cautious of septic use. We look forward to your return trip. Have a wonderful summer!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Bill for that awesome review. Looking forward to your return trip! I agree with your comment about the stairs! We love the fact there are so few compared to many of the other houses on the lake. Only 21 stairs to the sidewalk/path!!

Fabulous weekend, Beautiful House, Dock, Firepit, Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home because of the Big Creek location and the 4 couples going would each have their own Bed / Bath spaces thinking it was a Good choice. When we arrived we were quick to say it was a FABULOUS CHOICE! The Beautiful home is set up perfect for a couples group- and each room even has additional sleeping if you were to bring a few more. The kitchen / food prep area is spacious so with multiple cooks we weren't bumping into each other, with dining area seating for all 8 of us to eat at the table. The lower deck was perfect when a 15 minute storm / shower came through to sit out and enjoy the sound of the rain on the trees and roof, before heading back down to the dock. Oh- yes- the dock-- our 23' boat fit perfect in the slip, and the seating area is spacious and the chairs nice for laying out. We brought 2 kayaks-which along with the paddle boat and 2 kayaks provided made for quiet trips to the back of the cove. The hydroports fit the jet skis we borrowed which kept them out of the waves bouncing against the dock when boats going by were not as courteous as they should have been with their wakes. We had plently of room in the cove to tie out a floating island and boat toys. The new path to the dock and firepit / deck area was thoughtfully done with small ridges in areas under the trees so it doesn't get slippery when wet. The propane firepit was perfect for toasting marshmallows and drinking beverages to relax at the end of the day in comfortable Adriondack chairs. (and we didn't have to gather wood : ) ) Path lighting on a timer made it easy to find our way back to the house after Fire on the Water at Sequoyah Marina. The house is located about halfway between Sequoyah and Whitman Hollow Marinas- so nice for gassing up the boat.

The owners Barbara and Allan were quick to respond (when we couldn't find the correct switch to shut off the dock lights) and have provided everything you need for a wonderful, comfortable trip to Norris Lake. We were already planning our next trip by the second day, and there was no question- we WILL be staying HERE again! - Sue&Mike, Cheryl&Mike,Terri&Kory, Joanna&Jamie
