About Owner

My wife and I lived in Knoxville, TN for 10 years and loved spending time at Norris Lake. We now live in Columbus, OH so that we can be closer to our families.

Owner purchased this House in 2004

Why Owner chose Big Creek

Even though we moved to OH, we wanted to continue to enjoy boating and skiing with our children and friends, so we bought this cottage to enjoy and share with others. Our property is close to our friends and it is in a wonderful area of Norris Lake.

What makes this House unique

Our property has a covered dock. We are near the end of a cove, so there is no boat traffic in front of the dock and it is very safe for swimming, even for smaller children. The lot is not steep and the house is close to the water, so it is easy to walk between the house and dock. Our property is very peaceful and relaxing - it's a great family get-away!

                                                      Thomas B.

                                                      We felt right at home the moment we walked in. It was clean and cozy with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The owner was wonderful to work with and made sure all of our needs were met. We enjoyed going out on the canoe and taking in the gorgeous sunsets and star gazing.

                                                      Excellent House & Location

                                                      Kelan G.

                                                      Myself and a group of friends in our early twenties rented this house for Memorial day weekend like we had done the year before. The house was very well kept and had a very welcoming feel to it making it seem like you were at your own lake house. The small cove it is located in was very nice to swim in and is within a slightly larger cove that one can take their boat out to if they want more room while still being out of the way of boat traffic. It was a 15 min drive to Shanghai Resort for our boat rental which was an issue the year before not having a place very close to us. The wrap around deck has a great view and is very peaceful but does lead to a slope down to the dock. While not an issue for us, it could be one for very young children or someone who has difficulties with walking. The owners were very friendly and easy to work with. They were very responsive and wanted to make it as easy a process to rent from them as possible. I would recommend this house to everyone and if things work out well we may even be back next year!

                                                      Great Location- Great House- Great Weekend

                                                      Conner M.

                                                      I rented this property in 2015 the weekend after Memorial Day weekend (big lake weekend). The house was perfect! Plenty of room on the inside and out on the decks. We had 13 people and didn't feel crammed. The driveway is steep so watch out! The neighbors were nice and even let us use some of their firewood.

                                                      Unfortunately we had one mishap with one of the couches and ended up not getting our security deposit back. The owners were kind enough to make it clear that even though we had accidentally bent the frame of their couch that we would be welcome to come back anytime. The owners are always available if you need anything or have questions! The house is located in a quiet cove that is perfect for swimming. Great for a getaway weekend with family or friends! I would definitely recommend this property and will consider renting again!

                                                      We rented this property in April 2006 for spring break with the kids & absolutely loved it. The house is fully equipped & very clean -- we felt right at home. All we had to bring was clothes, food & toiletries. It's unbelievable how many people could stay here even though it is listed as a 3 bedroom. We had 2 families staying together with 4 adults, 4 kids and had room for more. 2-3 families would fit very comfortably if you are looking to share rental costs. We rented a houseboat for a day from a local marina & had a great time on the lake. It is in a remote area so if you are looking to really "get away from it all" but still want the amenities at home with nice quiet neighbors on each side, then this is the place for you! Our stay was fantastic so we're renting it again this year. Working with the owners was a very pleasant experience -- definitely a family you can trust. The owner described it to me as "her little piece of heaven" and I now know why!

The pictures on the website don’t do it justice. The huge deck is perfect for spending time outside. Great neighbors. Owners are even better!
