Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: John Bertke lives in Dayton, OH and enjoys visiting Norris Lake with his friends and family. He enjoys fly fishing and smoking cigars.

Why the Owner Chose La Follette, TN, USA:
They say location means everything. The Big Dipper is located in the woods, right on the waters edge. The fish come to swim around the dock. The boaters come to swim around the cove. There are two golf courses nearby. What more could you ask for?

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
I'm an avid fly fisher, my wife loves to golf, and my daughters never tire from wakeboarding so my whole family stays happy when we visit The Big Dipper.
