Why John Bertke chose Lakeside Estates
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?
What makes this Cabin unique
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.

Great time by all
Well maintained and clean. Family enjoyed the stay. Highly recommended for large family gatherings.
Roomy cabin. Overall well maintained, especially compared to some we have stayed at on Norris Lake.
We had a great stay. Cabin was clean and well stocked. Owner was easy to work with. Plenty of room for our 26. We would definitely choose this cabin again.
My family and I had an amazing weekend full of love and laughter,thanks to the Big Dipper and the owner for allowing this to happen.
Loved this place!
Our group of 18 had plenty of space! The kids in our group especially loved the game room and the dock. The extra kitchen downstairs made cooking and food storage extra convenient. The house is beautiful and the view is gorgeous. Shopping is about 15 minutes away. The owner is very friendly and accommodating.
This house was well suited for our family reunion of about 20. The location in the shelter of a "cove" was conducive to swimming, floating and paddling around without safety concerns. The house was well equipped and the everything functioned, including the all important hot tub, as expected.
Fabulous Family Reunion
The Big Dipper was the site for our annual family reunion this year. We range in age from 5-56 and EVERYONE had a fantastic time! We were a little nervous because we usually go to the OBX but wanted to try something new and the Big Dipper and Norris Lake did not disappoint. Enough room for everyone to be together and enough space for everyone to find a quiet place to hang out. Would definitely recommend renting a boat and jet ski...we were all out on the lake everyday. The newly added fire pit deck was a nice surprise when we arrived too. The reason for only 4 stars was due to a few wasp nests found around the outside of the house, which the owner sent someone to temporarily address within the hour and has assured us he will be taking care of this issue on a more permanent level now that they've been brought to his attention. Would definitely recommend The Big Dipper to anyone looking to get a truly relaxing lake house vacation!
