Great family experience at a great house

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house over a long Thanksgiving weekend. The house and the owners exceeded our expectations. The owners were great and very responsive. The house was clean and well appointed. Two living areas gave the little ones their own space to play in. Kitchen was well equipped. Decks were awesome. Loved seeing the deer in the yard everyday. Overall a great experience.

Great house for a fun relaxing weekend with beautiful scenery

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house over a long weekend! The layout of the house was great for the kids and had a lot of room to be indoors if needed. The decks were amazing and we found ourselves hanging out there the most and enjoying the peaceful surroundings. Everything was well stocked and we had all that we needed to cook in and grill out. We rented a boat at the marina and had a fun time cruising around on such a beautiful lake! The owners were very easy to deal with and were helpful and quick to respond to our inquiries.

Extremely nice Deerfield Resort home!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented homes the past seven years for a multi family Thanksgiving vacation and last year we chose this home. It is probably the nicest place we've stayed in to date. The owners are very helpful and the house is fully stocked and clean. There is plenty of room to separate the youngsters from the older generation and it is just a very relaxing place to spend time. I would recommend this wonderful home without reservation!

family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Our stay at your home was terrific! The house is beautiful and was very spacious for all 12 of us. It lacked nothing. We loved the view of the lake from the deck and watching all of the deer in the yard.

I would definitely consider staying here again for our next trip to Norris Lake!

Fantastic Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the Hanke Haus do not it justice. It is an absolutely beautiful property. The owners have thought of everything. We loved watching the deer walking around at all times of day and the views from the deck were spectacular. The only thing we would do differently next time is stay longer!

We loved our stay at the Hanke Haus! Beautiful, comfortable, relaxing, spacious, clean. All in all, perfect accomodations for our entire family! Loved the wrap around deck, especially in the morning to watch the deers! Can't wait to come back.
