Property description

This A-frame lake house sits at the opening of a quiet cove on some of the best sking waters of Norris Lake with plenty of year round water.

It started with our family vacations on Norris Lake and became a love of water sports, appreciation for the beauty of an endless lake nestled in the mountains and of friends old and new. This is not a rental, it is our home away from home that we would like to share with others looking for the same peace, serenity, smooth water and love of life and family.

Our home has all the atmosphere you would expect in a lake house with a stone fireplace and windows all the way up to the wood ceiling beams. This house is the perfect getaway, fully equipped with all the comforts of home.

This A-frame features a private master bedroom off the loft with a queen bed and private bath, a queen bedroom on the main floor and another bedroom with twin beds right across the hall. The basement is newly finished in 2009 with a large bedroom including a queen bed and a bunk bed with a double bed down and a single on top. The basement includes a new spacious bath with a large stand up shower. Walk out the basement and you are a stone throw from your deep-water dock, endless lake views and a refreshing dip in the clear waters of Norris Lake. The bamboo hardwood floors throughout the main level are the finishing touch on creating the right atmosphere for your lake vacation. In 2015 I renovated the kitchen to provide more functional space for preparing any meals. New tile floors, fridge, granite countertops and tile floors in all the baths just to name a few improvements. Our repeat renters constantly email me and compliment our continuous improvement.

Our home has everything you need for a fun, stress-free vacation. Come enjoy a home away from home, and still feel like you have all the comforts you're used to. Call soon to reserve your vacation get away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My wife an I have 2 kids that we enjoy using the lake house with. So far most of our time at the lake has been spent improving the lake house but we have managed to enjoy a few weekends up there. This is our special place to get away.

Why the Owner Chose Big Creek, La Follette, TN, USA:
It's the best area of Norris for watersports. Liked the views. Our lot is almost on the point of a fork in the cove so there are great views.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We use rent money to improve our home and it partially helps us afford the house. We are constantly doing some redecorating and renovating not out of necessity but strictly to improve our stays at the house. Most things including kitchen equipment, bedding, rugs, flooring are brand new.
