5 star house and location!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful. I enjoyed the location at the Powell Valley marina. I liked that the house had a loft where the kids could all come together to play games and just hang out. We enjoyed getting to know some of the neighbors as well. Awesome vacation!!'

Highly recommend !

  • 5 of 5

Property was exactly as the pictures and owner was supportive and available as expected (we only had 1 question). Location of house is awesome and the marina provided the basics that one needs. Flat Hallow marina is a 10 min boat ride away which was an unexpected surprise.

We used to do houseboats on Lake Cumberland and don't think we will go back to them. This awesome Floating house on beautiful Lake Norris is something we will do again this year and probably book every year.

Thanks to Mike for awesome accommodations.

Everything you could ask for

  • 5 of 5

Just rented for 5 day trip over July 4. It was everything the website says and more. The view from front porch is the absolute best we have ever had and we have rented all over the lake for almost 20 years. House was gorgeous inside and out. The owners go above and beyond to make everything renter friendly; well stocked kitchen, plenty of seating for a big group inside and outside, easy instructions supplied for renters explaining every detail of the house. Would def like to book again in the future.

House was exactly as pictured. Location was awesome (out of traffic area), owner was helpful and Norris Lake is just awesome. The marina isn't the best, but it doesn't matter. Flat Bottom Marina is a 10 min boat ride away if you want to have fun and spend time at a nice one. We also made it to the jumping bridge and the dam as well down Norris river. Was our first time doing a floating house and won't ever go back to a houseboat ever again! Can't wait to go back. Thanks to Mike for being great. Highly recommend.
