The Chalet is perfect for large family reunions. There is space for parking 8 cars and 2-boat trailers. It is possible for a ATV to drive down to the boat dock.

Sequoyah Marina is fairly close by boat for those who enjoy dining out, need gas, or want to rent water 'toys.' Boat rentals are also available at Whitman Hollow on the way up to the Chalet.

During high water season, a community launching site is only a few minutes away by water.

About the owner: The Chalet is owned by the Family Matters Ministry. It is used for retreats during the off-season and for family reunions during vacations.

Why the Owner Chose Big Creek, La Follette, TN, USA:
Norris Lake is the cleanest TVA lake and is a highly desirable vacation destination for those who enjoy lake living, water skiing, and fishing. The Big Creek area #6 on the lake is quiet, away from tourist activities, and is great for swimming in the clear water.

This is a writer's paradise! And perfect for those who love children and family activities. The view is incredible, and the main level is handicap friendly.
