About the property

Lakfront 4BR 4BA with great swimming and platform/slide dock!

Big news for the Lighthouse in 2017! Brand new 2 bay dock with concrete deck, huge swim deck, jumping platform, and slide!

The Lighthouse, so named because it is beautifully decorated with lighthouses, has one of the most spectacular views available on Norris Lake. It has a large living space, including a spacious, well-equipped kitchen, living room, sunroom and downstairs recreation room (Ping pong, pop a shot, with a sectional couch and TV). Plenty of room to enjoy an adult conversation or card game and have the kids having their own play space. New 40' flat screen with Direct TV and DVD player.

Three bedrooms upstairs, two with lake views. One bedroom has a king size bed as well as a crib. The second bedroom has a queen. Each of these provide great lake views. The third bedroom has a set of twin beds. There is also a large bedroom downstairs with four sets of bunk beds.

There are four full baths in the home--two on each level. One of the bathrooms on the main level has a full tub.

Decking off the kitchen and sunroom for relaxing and/or eating outside. From here you can watch activities at the dock and lake. The deck connects with the sunroom and kitchen for easy entertaining. An outdoor table and chairs along with a gas grill and evening shade make eating on the deck a must!

The large 2-slip (one slip is occupied by the owners boat) covered boatdock and large swimming platform is a summer vacation paradise with great fishing and year-round deep water. It's in a quiet area of the lake close to Sequoia Marina if you enjoy dining out, need gas, or want to rent water 'toys.' Whitman Hollow Marina, a great place to launch your boat, is only a short boat trip to the dock. There's space for 2 boat trailers, and parking for 4 cars.

Easily accessible from the carport to the first floor kitchen/living room/sunroom/deck and two of the bedrooms and bathrooms.

The house is located on a cul-de-sac in a very quiet, private wooded area: Big Creek #6. You'll find the surroundings to be spectacular, relaxing and stress-free. It's the ideal vacation location.

About Grant

My family and I have been going to Norris Lake for over 40 years. We just love it. My grandfather had a cabin at the lake when i was growing up and I wanted my kids to have that expierience as well.

Grant purchased this house in 2012

Why Grant chose Big Creek

This property is special for two reasons, size and location. The size is great. The extra sleeping and living spaces--really make a difference. The TV/game area downstairs, the great room upstairs, and the sunroom (my favorite)--allows everyone to spread out.

What makes this house unique

The other very special aspect to this porperty is the location--you're not stuck back in some cove with no view, and you're not on main channel and not able to let the kids swim off the dock. This place has a great dock to swim from and that was very important to me.

New Year's at the lake

  • 4 of 5

Spent 4 nights at the lake house with friends and relatives (a group of 8). The view of the lake from the house was exceptional even though the lake level was low since it was winter time. Have to believe that the view would be fantastic in the summer months. The house had plenty of space and activities such as ping pong, darts and foosball as well as a good selection of board games. The kitchen was well equipped with dishes, cookware and appliances. Very private and quiet location. Spent some time visiting and hiking in Cove Lake State Park and Norris Dam State Park.

The owner was very accommodating and helpful. We look forward to returning for a future New Year's holiday gathering.

Fantastic Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The Lighthouse is a wonderful place to enjoy Norris Lake. It had a beautiful view from the house and a spacious dock on the Big Creek area that was great for launching water sports, fishing and swimming. The owners were fantastic to work with and very accomodating. Great house for all ages. Thanks for letting us use it.

Family reunion weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend at your lake house! The views from the house were amazing - the best views on Norris! We appreciated the new steps leading up from the dock - very stable, no problems. We also really enjoyed being on a quiet part of the lake, perfect for swimming with the kids off the dock and just relaxing. We had a big family and there was room for all - plenty of different spaces for everyone to hang out. We hope to return really soon! Thanks.

Our whole family stayed and it comfortable fit 18 of us with a inflated mattress for the little ones. Everything was clean, the owner was very friendly, as well as the maintenance man. I am looking to stay here again because it was so perfect!!

I have been going to Norris lake for over 40 years--and on the lake, as everywhere else it is all about location. This house has the big views, but off the main channel for safe swimming off the dock. It's also only about a 10-15 minute boat ride from three marina's, for gas, food, etc. It's just a great place to kick back and relax.
