About Scott & Missy Maxwell
With our twins entering their adult years and managing our two full-time careers, the ability to unwind and spend precious time with friends and family at Norris Lake has grown part of our family's tradition. Whether wake surfing, eating at one of the many near by marina's or just hanging out at Dockside Dreaming, we cherish every trip we make to Norris.
Scott & Missy Maxwell purchased this House in 2018
Why Scott & Missy Maxwell chose Lakeside Estates
Dockside Dreaming is perfect for large families such as ours or for the gathering of family reunions. There is access to the lake for watercraft via the community launch and the location is convenient to marinas, golfing and the ever popular “jumping bridge”, which is only a few hundred yards away.
What makes this House unique
Location, Location, Location! Lakeside Estates is one of best gated communities on Norris Lake. The convenience to the interstate and to shopping is second to none. The nearest grocery store is less than 10 minutes away! Sugar Hollow Marina is a 5 minute boat ride away.

Great Home, Great Location
This home is easy to access from I-75 and sits in a quiet cove with similar homes. It has ample space for several families and a nice dock. Although there are quite a few steps to the water (not at all unusual for this area), the dock provided a nice place to not only park boats (we had two), but also to relax and swim. The house is near the jumping bridge and several marinas where you can get dinner out or buy supplies.
The inside of the house is well kept and includes two kitchen areas and several baths. There are two large living rooms and a smaller one on the ground level. The decks and dock have plenty of chairs and the owners provided two adult kayaks and two child size kayaks. The bedding and furniture was all clean and comfortable.
We've met the owners who made sure that we had all the information we needed for our first visit to Norris Lake. They made solid recommendations regarding where to eat and where to be entertained on and around the lake. Check-in was a breeze. We also met the local property manager. She was very attentive and wanted to make sure that everything was up to her standards (it was).
This was our first visit to Lake Norris. We knew it was big, but we only were able to explore a small part of it in a week's time due to its size. Plus we found a place we enjoyed eating and grabbing a drink - and it was hard not to stop there!
We had a great time at this home and hope to return and explore more of the Lake. When we return, this home will be the first we look at when scheduling.
We are so happy that you and your family had a memorable first experience at Norris and would welcome you stay again with us at any time! We try and point our guests to the places we like to frequent ourselves - plenty of great options for certain!
Our first time at Norris Lake did not disappoint. We were there with friends & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. A great getaway from reality, which we all badly needed. Thks Scott & Missy & Kim! Thk you for providing us a place to relax & enjoy ourselves 😘💕
It was our honor to have you! We are glad it gave you a chance to relax and to celebrate Tony. We are eternally grateful to your family! #WestervilleStrong
Nice property right on the water. We had everything we needed and had a great week! All necessities are there and more. Walking path was wonderful to stroll by the lake. My only suggestion would be some dock maintenance and some tree trimming to help with view of the lake:)
Thanks for staying with us and so glad you enjoyed your time at Dockside Dreaming. We agree on the dock...long story short, starting in December 2018, we had contracted to have a new dock built and delivered in April 2019 but ended up having to engage legal counsel due to lack of performance. We have resolved that issue and are working to engage a new dock builder and fully expect to have a brand new dock later this fall.
Kim and her husband were amazing!
We contacted them a few times and they were always quick to help.
We agree Tianna! We are blessed to have Kim and Roger as our local team - they do a great job! Glad you enjoyed your time at Dockside Dreaming!
Our 24 person house church rented this house and it was seriously perfect. There were tons of little touches- a welcome basket, lots of supplies vacation houses don't usually have (including kayaks we could use!), a cabinet with spices so you don't have to buy your own for just that one dish, etc. This is the fourth Norris house I've rented and easily the cleanest and best maintained. Owners were very responsive. I would also like to give a shout out to the incredible property manager Kim, who came to our house twice during the week to solve very minor problems for us, and both times was there within 5 minutes (especially clutch when my kid locked everyone out of the bedroom accidentally!). We were all very comfortable. Please note that unlike similar homes, the second kitchen area does not have a stove or dishwasher. We did communal meals and this was not a big issue for us, but a second dishwasher, well, it wouldn't have hurt. Ha. Other than that, can't think of a single thing that could have been better. We plan to be back!
Thanks Rachel...we are so happy you enjoyed your time at Dockside Dreaming and we agree...Kim and her crew work tirelessly to ensure a clean home and a great experience for our renters. We would welcome you back at any point!!
