About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

When you sit out on one of the 2 large decks taking in the breathtaking sunset view overlooking Norris Lake you will wonder why it took so long to discover this spectacular getaway vacation. There is something for everyone; bring your boat or rent a boat at Springs Docks just minutes away to go fishing, skiing and swimming. The mountains lend themselves to hiking with golf nearby. There is access to a swimming pool, tennis and volleyball courts as well as a children's playground. Come back to our smoke-free house after a day on this crystal clear lake for continued fun with family or friends, Crank up the music on the top notch sound system to dance the night away, start a ping pong or corn hole tournament, watch movies on the Satellite TVs with DVD and CD located on both the main level and lower level, fire up either the gas or charcoal grills, or maybe just slip into one of the 2 lake view jacuzzis in the 2 master bedrooms on the main level. If you can picture yourself doing any one of these activities Ficke's View is the perfect house for you. Located on a quiet street in the gated Deerfield Resort Community you will feel as though Norris is your own private getaway.

The modern kitchen is fully equiped and faces the lake so you never miss out on the view. An open floorplan allows for everyone to be a part of the fun. A separate lower level family room houses the ping pong table and another TV.

We will furnish the bed linens and kitchen towels. You just need to bring bath and beach towels. A washer and dryer are provided if you should need them.

This is a year round getaway home.

Why Mary Ficke chose La Follette

Norris Lake is close enough to drive to and far enough away to forget about the hustle and bustle of the city. The folks down here always make you feel welcome and the lake never feels crowded.

What makes this house unique

Deerfield Resort is an exclusive gated community on Norris Lake, located between the Cumberland Mountains and the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountain. Norris Lake has over 800 miles of shoreline and a surface area of 34,000 acres. The water is 200 feet deep and clean enough to drink. Deerfield Resort is the only development on the lake with private airstrip, championship golf course, swimming pools, children's playground, tennis courts, sand volleyball and more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We first stayed in your home in 2002 - I found the note - When we had 3 babies. They are now 10,8,8! The view is still beautiful, one of the best in Deerfield. Your colorful walls are nice. I like your house so much we used it as a design for ours, built 5 years ago. This is our first rental of your house since then - it is usually not available. Hope you get to enjoy it too.

Nice roomy house with a great view. Nice hanging out on the deck even in the rain. Kitchen was well stocked. Our group enjoyed the ping pong table.

A 60th Anniversary Celebration

  • 3 of 5

Our family of 14 celebrated our parents 60th wedding anniversary and the property accommodated us quite well. Although we would have liked to have been lakeside rather than lake view, we still were able to dock our boat at the Deerfield Cove Marina which was fairly close to the property. The bushes and trees as you pull in the driveway could be trimmed as the holly bushes did scratch our vehicles as we entered and exited the property. Also the front porch as well as the back deck could be cleaned up as there were dead leaves and bird drippings. Overall, the property was everything the pictures displayed and we did have a great time!

The view was spectacular!

The beds were not that comfortable. It might be time for new mattresses. Other than that the accommodations were very nice

Best 4th of July Trip EVER!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 people total stay at the Ficke home. The house is gorgeous! The deck was where we spent most of our time after boating listening to music. The house was equipped with everything necessary to make a fantastic lake trip. Took my brand new boat out on its maiden voyage also. I would highly recommend Norris Lake to any boaters across the country looking for a getaway with beautiful water, and most certainly recommend staying at the Ficke home. Randy and Mary were responsive and very helpful with making our trip as enjoyable as possible. A huge thank you to the Ficke family for letting us stay in their beautiful home! We are already talking about booking our trip for 4th of July 2018.

Owner's Response: David, That was such wonderful and generous review. Thank you for sending it. I am glad you enjoyed our home and the lake. We have been going to Norris since 1983 so I share your enthusiasm for it. You are welcome back anytime.

Great House+ Great Lake =Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect house for our annual family vacation. The house was tastefully decorated and laid out perfectly for an active family. The downstairs had plenty activities for the kids to keep them occupied. The deck had a fantastic view of the lake especially with a morning cup of coffee. As a family we have stayed in a few houses on Norris Lake and this is by far our favorite. The communication with the owner was outstanding. This was an amazing experience and definitely we will be returning.
