About Hollis Cotton
I have always loved the water. My family often talked about having a place on the lake. I bought a wooded, secluded lot and had the Cotton Cabin built on it. Many memories have been made at the cabin and on the lake. This place is so peaceful, a great place to truly 'get away' from all the melee of life!
Hollis Cotton purchased this Cabin in 2008
Why Hollis Cotton chose La Follette
This lot sits on Norris Lake, arguably the cleanest lake in the region. I kept most of the trees on the lot to give it a sense of seclusion and still being in the woods, but lake views still abound here. Powder Mill Cove is not a high traffic area; thus, it is safer for children (and all lake-goers). However, the cabin rests within sight of the open channel of the lake and all the water sports and fun one can imagine.
What makes this Cabin unique
Enjoy the quiet deep water cove while sipping your coffee from one of the 2 large open decks. Cast away your cares as you enjoy all the fun Norris Lake has to offer.

It was good.
We had a good time with family.
Good location with ample sleeping space and nice dock, but no internet or cell service
Location - not too far from town or Springs Dock Marina (best place to get ice via boat), but access is via steep and curvy gravel road with no place to turn around a trailer in tow. I was unable to park my trailer near the house and had to leave it at the bottom of the gravel road in the grass. GPS does not correctly take you to the house from Springs Dock. Follow printed instructions.
Accommodations - spacious with plenty to do in the event of rain (pool table, etc). Can comfortably accommodate saiid number of guests. Needs significant updating: curtains falling off walls, no internet. No reliable cell phone access. Don't plan to be a successful work anywhere employee. AC was great, even kept the loft cool. Extra refrigerator was definitely a plus, although very slow to get cool. Door knobs and locks on certain doors do not work well. Only thing that could make me a repeat renter would be internet access.
Dock and cove on which house sits are excellent. Slope to dock is one of the more gentle ones on the lake making the climb easy.
Wonderful place for a family reunion, Outstanding Dock!
We had a wonderful family retreat, nice big house! We are boaters and very impressed with the new dock! Be warned, there is absolutely no cell service, not even texting near home or on lake which made me nervous when we were separated from kids or in case of an emergency at this part of the lake. Also, very unfriendly, agitated, grumpy old neighbor came to the door to argue with us, in front of the children, and scared the kids so much they were looking over their shoulder the rest of the trip. Some people! Overall a nice place, but we will probably go to a different part of the lake next summer. The house is very remote, and the road to it are steep gravel and unkept. I do not recommend taking the boat trailer to the house, leave it at the marina.
We had an amazing time in this perfect home away from home. The entertainment space is perfect for a large group to all be together, there were enough beds and rooms to give privacy and comfort to all and we had everything we needed for the best weekend. The dock is perfect for jumping in the water and listening to music all day in the sunshine. Would highly recommend this home to any family or group!
Loved our stay at the Cotton Cabin!
The Cotton Cabin was so nice and worked out so well for my family. We rented the cabin for the weekend to celebrate Christmas and New Year's with my family from North Carolina. Hollis had left a Christmas tree and some ligts out on deck for us! The cabin is decorated so cute and the layout is so nice. We all had privacy but were still able to be together and not on top of each other. The kids had a blast with the air hockey table. All the adults enjoyed the pool table as well as the air hockey. With such a large family, the Cotton Cabin was perfect for us!
We rented Cotton Cabin for a long weekend. My group of friends tries to plan a Norris Lake weekend about every other year. This cabin was the best!!! The location was ideal - close to marina and on one of the "fingers" so the boat traffic was minimal. The house was very well maintained and clean. There was plenty of parking. The only thing to note is that the master bedroom is a loft - so not very quiet when you have several people on different bedtime and wake up schedules. But, it was so nice....we can deal with that. Thank you, Cotton Cabin! We will be back!
