About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16)

This beautiful log home is located in the exclusive private community of Lone Mountain Shores. Snuggled on secluded cul-de-sac peninsula and surrounded by water, the home boasts a PRIVATE dock steps from the back door. Go to home website link below for more information, pictures and rental calendar. Go to property website link below for more info.

In addition to the private dock, the home features 5 Bdrms + sleeping loft, 3.5 baths and a driveway that can easily accommodate multiple vehicles / boat trailer. Guests can also enjoy the use of 3 person canoe for those fishing trips or maybe just a relaxing stroll on the lake.

MAIN FLOOR: Bedroom 1 / master suite is located on the first floor and is equipped with a private bath and outdoor covered porch with sitting area. The family room has floor to ceiling windows offering incredible views of the property/lake and also includes HD Flat Screen TV/Satellite, VHS and DVD's. A full kitchen and dining room is connected to a screened porch and a large private deck with a Weber gas grill. The unobstructed views of the lake are breathtaking from this 1+ acre property.

UPSTAIRS: Bedroom 2 has a queen bed, Bedroom 3 has 2 single/twins and they connect to a full bath. The upstairs also includes a loft + sleeping area with a foosball table, DVD's, VHS, satellite TV and various board games for your enjoyment.

WALKOUT: additional 2 bedrooms + full bath. Includes 2nd Master with king bed and 5th bedroom with 2 log bunk beds - twin over full. The walkout patio also features a 6 person hot tub overlooking the lake.

OUTSIDE: The slope to the lake is gradual and can be accessed by adults and children of all ages. There is also a deck mid-way down with spectacular views of Norris Lake. Adjacent to the deck, enjoy late nights with family and friends around the fire pit.

Boating Life Magazine referred to renting a home in the New Tazewell area 'a great call' because the relatively rustic Norris is separated from the busier Norris. The purity of Lone Mountain Shores will truly have you slowing down to enjoy life. You are only steps away from the private dock to experience the best of Norris.

Whether you golf (Championship Woodlake Golf Course just a few miles away!), ski, tube, wakeboard, fish, or simply like to float in the pristine waters, Norris Lake and Lone Mountain Shores is truly a one of a kind beauty!

NOW BOOKING: reservation will be held with a $300 security deposit (refunded upon successful check out), balance not due 90 until days prior to reservation date. Go to property website link for MORE pictures, calendar, etc.

Check in 4:00pm / Check out 10:00am. Special Holiday Rates will apply to certain weeks (please call). Weekly rentals only during Peak Season, but will consider optional dates based on availability.

About Aimee Frantz

With 3 children and numerous sports activities we don't make it to Norris Lake as much as we would like, but it certainly makes us appreciate our time even more while there. The peaceful setting of the eastern side of Norris Lake makes for a more enjoyable, relaxing vacation for families of all ages.

Fantastic location on the water. Comfortable home with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

Aimee was very responsive and easy to work with. The house was well equipped with everything that a large group would need. Also full of fun stuff for everyone. The corn hope, paddle boards, air hockey, books, games, etc gave everyone plenty to do. Lone Mountain is a great part of the lake. Highly recommend.

Great Start to Our Summer!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a full week here with our young adult kids (total of 7 adults). The house was perfect for our needs. I would think the stairs to the lake may be concerning for young children or seniors, but not impossible. The paddle boards and canoe were a big hit! Lots of space to spread out when needed and common rooms to be together. Plenty of room for more people. Loved the hot tub. Its a bit of a drive to get groceries and supplies, so stock up on the way as we did. There is a great selection of board games, movies, and the fire pit to keep everyone happy. We had a great time with the corn hole game. I would highly suggest renting a boat. There is a well stocked kitchen and nice big dining table that had plenty of seating. Homeowners were very responsive to my questions. We all agreed that we would like to return!

I love this cabin on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

I restore log cabins for a living. I have access to thousands of cabins all over the country. One of my favorite log cabin settings is this place on the lake. Its quiet and private. The water is clean, deep and clear. The wind blows so perfectly at this place. The views relax the soul. The cabin is very comfortable. There is a marina a short distance away with boat rentals. We stayed here for a week with 5 kids and had some friends stay also. We rented a boat, went swimming, did some tubing, fished, relaxed in the hot tub, played games, grilled out, had a bon fire and roasted marsh mellows and enjoyed the breeze. I was able to connect with my family in a way that had not been possible for a long time. Yes, there is long stairs to lake. I like it. It truly is one of my favorite places. Thanks Aimee and Brandon.

More than meets the eye

  • 2 of 5

Beautiful setting, amble room for large party. So why the 2 star? Winding road to get there, 108 steep steps without a railing to get to the water while carrying down and up a canoe and paddle boats, (fortunately no one fell), an owner who was a poor communicator, who would not refund for a non-working hot tub, and who waited a month to refund deposit. Also, we were charged $62.50 for a service charge. Is this something new with VRBO? If that is the case, we probably won't book with VRBO again.

Owner's Response: We work very hard to respond to guest inquires, issues and strive deliver the best possible vacation experience. This review was not only inaccurate, but unfair and a blatant misrepresentation of the events / timing. These guests were notified in writing PRIOR to renting that the hot tub motor was being replaced. We also post all pictures of stairs to lake on this site as well as Facebook, so full transparency was provided (one of the most gradual walks to lake you will find on Norris Lake). And the security deposit WAS refunded less than 30 days from checking out, as described in the contract this guest signed, but also verified by HomeAway/VRBO tracking. Lastly, the service fee is not within the owners control. While we do not agree with VRBO doing this, they have instituted it for all bookings. This home has been rented for nearly 10 years and I think the rental history amongst the hundreds of other very happy guests, speak for itself.

Very nice cabin on beautiful property with great view down the lake.

  • 5 of 5

Me and my friends really enjoyed the cabin. We spent time in the hot tub, swimming in the lake, paddle boarding, canoeing, bonfires, grilling, and watching football. The open floor plan between the kitchen and living room was great for all of us to feel like we were in the same space but not crammed together. The property was very nice, very clean, well maintained. The process was simple and easy. I would definitely recommend this property to others and may come back in the future myself. It was a relaxing get away.

Only negative of the trip-We played golf nearby at Woodlake Golf Course. The course was nice and we had fun, but we were treated very rudely. If and when we return to this cabin, we will not be returning to that course. Very disappointed.

Everything to do with the cabin was perfect though. Really great trip. Highly recommended!
