About the Property

House, 8 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 30, 2 full kitchens, 18x30 waterside fire pit

Happy Hour is a newer lake front home designed around the celebration of family and friends. It is ideal for reunions, gatherings, and the entertainment of both large and intimate groups. Happy Hour accommodates up to 30 guests in beds and is equipped with ample table seating. Located on an acre lot with more than 200 feet of private water frontage & built right on the 1044 (the lowest and closest to the lake that the Tennessee Valley Water Authority will allow).

This 8 bedroom home offers 2 full Living levels complete with a full kitchen, living room, dining area, as well as a private deck with a full outdoor furniture set and grill on each level. A 3rd walkout lower level is equipped with a game room offering Foosball, air hockey, a gaming TV, and two bedrooms designed as kid friendly bunk rooms and a full bath. This 3rd level is very private and is sure to accommodate the more active evening activities, while providing tranquility to the upper two floors. The 3rd level walks out to a private deck which extends to a secluded hot tub deck equipped with a new hot tub overlooking the water. Beyond the hot tub deck is a walking path and fire pit area on the waters edge.

The Covered boat dock is oversized, constructed with Trex decking and is equipped with two personal watercraft drive up docks, a water slide, and a large sunning deck with a Tiki Bar and is ideal for playing at the water or just hanging out. The Main level of the house is located on the street level with no steps to the entry. This is ideal for those wanting to avoid steps while still enjoying the breathtaking views of the water from this level.

An 18 x 32 foot fire pit and camping area has just been added on the waters edge. It is elevated and overlooks the water & is perfect for evening gatherings or early Spring and Fall activities. Like the rest of Happy Hour, it was designed with the group gathering/family in mind. Sharing stories with your friend/relatives around the fire or just roasting marshmallows with your grandchildren is a special experience you will remember for a lifetime. Two tent areas beyond the main gathering area are ideal for the kids to have a campout close to the house during your vacation.

The main level kitchen is enhanced with granite counter tops and custom Tennessee built cabinets. The majority of the main level has authentic hardwood flooring, 17 foot tall cathedral ceilings, a 50 LCD TV, a Bose iPod Sound Dock, two dining areas, a beautiful owners suite equipped with a king bed and a pull out single love seat. The owner’s bath is top of the line with a Jacuzzi type tub and tile flooring. The 2nd bedroom on the main level has a king bed and adjoins a full bath via a private entrance. This 2nd bath is also open to the great room and is a common bath. The 3rd bedroom offers a full over full bunk and a great view. The Main level deck extends the length of the home as do the other 2 levels of deck, and offers a sunning area with lounge chairs at one end and a table and chair area with a large stainless steel grill at the other.

The middle level has an open floor plan complete with a large family room with a spectacular view and a 50 inch plasma TV, as well as a 2nd full kitchen, dining area, 3 bedrooms, full bath and a laundry room with an extra ice maker. The 4th bedroom is located on the lakeside and has a king bed and TV. The 5th bedroom offers a king bed. The 6th bedroom is set up ideally for the young family with a queen bed and a set of twin bunks with a trundle pull out bed. There is plenty of room for a Pak N Play as Happy Hour has two of them upon request.

The lower walkout level, as mentioned above, is complete with a recreation/game room and two bedrooms. The large room has two full over full bunk bed sets, and the 8th bedroom has two twin bunk sets.

Happy Hour has plenty of parking and, can accommodate up to 8 cars outside of the home, and many more in the development's auxiliary parking area. Happy Hour is conveniently located in the Lakeside Estates gated community just a few miles from I-75 and minutes from the city of La Follette. From the lake, you couldn't ask for a better location. The very popular Deerfield Resort is located just south of Lakeside Estates and around the corner from Sugar Hollow Marina, Shanghai Marina, and Springs Resort. You can enjoy these full service marinas and restaurants within a few minute boat ride, yet be very secluded at your vacation home.

Car: Recommended

Located just 8 minutes from Downtown Lafollette and a short drive to I 75 in the very popular Lakeside Estates. This home offers year around water and sits on the 1044, this is the lowest and closest to the lake that the TVA will allow a home to be built. There are several miles of walking trials at the 1020 and around the mountain and neighborhood. Four of Norris Lake's most popular marinas are located just a few miles away and Springs Dock is only 5 minutes down the lake by boat.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Our family lives on a lake in Ohio and have enjoyed waterfront living for many years. Due to our experience with lake living for several years we custom built Happy Hour to reflect the needs of our family and others like it when we vacation at Norris. Over the past few years we have made many improvements to complete our wish list.

Why the Owner Chose Lakeside Estates (La Follette, TN, USA):
As a real estate professional, I specialize in waterfront homes for sale & rent. With the knowledge and experience of 20 years of being involved in waterfront homes we designed and built Happy Hour with all the wish list items a renter would want.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Most of the reservations we have at Happy Hour are repeat visitors year after year. We hear over and over how they love the floor plan and how it accommodates their large groups. They love the 2 full kitchens, the oversized fire pit and oversized covered dock. The waterslide is always a favorite for the children and the adults love the Tiki bar. The home/dock is located on a safe and peaceful area on the lake. The little ones can swim right off the dock with very few waves and little boat traffic to worry about. Being just a minute from Norris Lake's most popular water hang out spot, 'the jumping bridge', is always a crowd favorite. Sugar Hollow Dock is just right around the corner. It is a big attraction as it has some of the best food on the lake and the night life is second to none with the oversized outdoor bar and famous Karaoke night and theme weekends.
