Brand new home as of 6/1/2018. 15 miles from I75. Windows everywhere. You will have 180+ degrees of water. A lot of homes on Norris have houses on top of one another, not this one. No neighbors on either side of the home. Plenty of room for relaxing and taking in the views. The house is extremely close to the water, so it is a short walk down to the water. Kitchen is large with a huge island. There are two refrigerators for extra space, and main level laundry. Verizon is the only phone service that does work, but sketchy at times. Texting seems to work the best with Verizon. There is a single slip covered dock, with a swim platform and two jet ski ports. If you want to have easy access to the lake with a feeling of being away from everyone and other houses, this is the place. There are three marinas close, if you want to have a bit of fun:) (Shanghai, Whitman Hollow by boat or car, Seqouia by boat). If you are bringing a boat, Whitman Hollow is on the way to the house. It has a launch (no charge like other places), and a place to keep your trailer, no charge. There is a boat launch on our street 1/4 mile down the road, but it has a long backup on cement, and is a little steep. I would recommend checking it out. The ramp is by the white Cove Pointe Community sign. You will pass it on the way to the house. Whitman Hollow’s ramp is short and gradual. I use the closer ramp, it just depends on your comfort level.

About Rich Dobec
We have a family of teenagers, and a large grocery bill. We like to have a good time and hope you enjoy our home like we do. We honestly would like to spend every weekend on the lake but we are too busy with growing kids. We have rented a lot of homes for vacations, and this home was built off our experiences to meet everything we thought would put a smile on anyone that spent some time at our home.
Rich Dobec purchased this House in 2018
Why Rich Dobec chose Big Creek
The views are unbelievable. The lot was chosen for the view, and easy access to the water. Windows are everywhere, so you'll feel like you're outdoors when your not.

We loved the house.
The house is beautiful, it has the open concept. The only thing I would recommend is to have some type of rail going down to the lake along with some type of lighting. Coming up at night from the dock was a little challenging with no rail or lights. They only had a very small skillet and two pots that I could find. We just sold our lake house down the road from this one and we supplied everything for our renters so this a eye opener to have to bring everything with me. The garbage cans were small and did not hold much, if you are renting for a week your garbage will not fit in the cans. Other than these items I just listed the house was great and the owner was great to work with. I would rent this house again..
Perfect Lake House
We really enjoyed staying at this house, we were amazed at the perfection that went into the design, layout, and features. It has a very open plan and the kitchen is huge (which is where we spend a lot of time). Great deck space for breakfast overlooking the lake. Nice steps down to the dock (and not too many). Very nice dock with lots of room to layout and play. Bed were very comfortable. Everything is brand new and really clean. We'd love to come back.
Gorgeous home on Lake Norris!
Our family had a terrific time during the vacation we took at this home. This home is beautiful and modern, and the owners were helpful with suggestions on places to eat and visit. My kids had the best time tubing on the lake and riding on the pontoon boat that we rented. The driveway is steep but it is not difficult to navigate. A great place to vacation overall and we would absolutely return for another vacation at this home!
Fun and relaxing time at the lake
The house was just perfect for a family vacation. Plenty of room to spread out but great for gathering too. The view of the lake from the top floor was fantastic. The house and all the amenities made our family vacation truly a memorable one. Our host was great to work with and provided a lot of helpful advice.
Over the top impressive home!!
A group of 6 of us visited this home in June and had the time of our life!! This home is over the top nice. From the second you walk in and see the breath taking views, you know you are going to be on your dream vacation. Rich did a wonderful job building this house, every detail is well thought out. Bring your swimsuit and food to grill out and enjoy your vacation! The driveway is dangerous so highly suggest driving an SUV and collecting everything you need before arriving to you home away from home. Thank you Rich!
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. I’d love to take all the credit for building the home, but it wasn’t just me. One area I would have to give my wife credit for was decorating the house, I’m not gifted in that area. As far as the driveway, we have had friends use their 2 wheel drive cars with no problems. Since the driveway is all new asphalt or concrete, as long as you go slow, it is safe to use. Hope to have you guys down again.
