                                                  Love the house... be prepared for the outside stairs! Great exercise!

                                                  Wonderful summer getaway to enjoy Lake Norris

                                                  Lori L.

                                                  This property is everything it claims to be. It is located conveniently by Twin Cove Marina. The house is clean and the kitchen is fully stocked. We love this property and location,and continue to spend two weeks with another family enjoying it every year. We love spending the days out in the boat and going to all the marinas on the lake, and coming home to a covered slip and beautiful house. The owners are very responsive and helpful with any questions we have ever had, and we highly recommend this property.

                                                  long family weekend

                                                  Annette K.

                                                  We had a really great time. The house was very nice and comfortable. We had everything we needed in the house and the proximity to the water was perfect. Grandchildren loved fishing off the dock. I would recommend this house to anyone who is planning to go to Norris Lake.

                                                  Labor Day Trip 2016

                                                  Josh G.

                                                  We had 3 families staying at this property for a long weekend, and had plenty of space for everyone. The house comes with pretty much everything you need for a trip, along with some extra unexpected amenities for entertainment such as board games, movies, things to keep the kids busy (they really enjoyed the lego set in the lower level), etc. As for functionality with the lake, the location couldn't be better. The property is literally a 2 second boat ride from the marina's no wake zone. The dock is excellent for both swimming/relaxing and keeping the boat safely secured when not out on the water. As mentioned previously, the driveway easily allows for 3 cars, and could probably manage to squeeze 4 depending on the types of vehicles. The offsite space provided for storage of the boat trailer is close and easily accessible. We did have a minor issue with the grill, but it was resolved, and we were even reimbursed for the inconvenience. The responsiveness and courtesy of the owner and manager is excellent. I've also already received reimbursement via PayPayl for the security deposit and we've only been back home a few days - some places take up to 3 weeks. Overall, very satisfied, and highly recommend.

                                                  Nick C.

                                                  -Owners and management were very easy to work with

                                                  -House was in great shape and as advertised

                                                  -Deposit was returned in full within 1 1/2 weeks of leaving

                                                  -Dock was large and in great shape

                                                  -The only negative (just a fact of being on the side of a mountain) was no parking for boat trailers. However, they provide an offsite spot for the trailer.

                                                  -Overall, this is a great property and I highly recommend.

                                                  Unresolved issues....still.

                                                  Wende G.

                                                  Communication with the owner was easy in setting up our stay. The owner was accommodating in planning our trip. We even negotiated a non-refundable pet deposit.

                                                  The house is in a great location and you get exactly what you see in the pictures. Please note there is no blender or grill brush in the photos. The grill has not been cleaned recently. In fact, neither had the jetted tub as black mold shot out when we tried to use it. We were unable to use it on our trip.

                                                  Additionally, it’s been 6 months and we still do not have our deposit properly refunded to us. We've been accused of damages that have never been proven and seem unlikely and far-fetched. The owners are arbitrarily keeping portions of our deposit, without documentation. We have begged for ANY documentation and none has been provided. The owner's communication has become extremely difficult and evasive. This seems to have become an issue of the owner attempting to make some extra money on a rental which they are not owed.

                                                  One final note, the owner is not-so pet-friendly and if you are willing to risk the rental of this property, beware, you may be accused of damages that are fictitious and lose your deposit. Further action is being taken against the owner.

                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                  This guest negotiated a 50% discount on the pet deposit because she said her 3 dogs were kennel kept, never on furniture, and well behaved. We are dog lovers and own 3 well behaved large dogs (A Hound, a Dane, and a Shepherd). She said she was clean and would make sure the house was clean before departure. Unfortunately, the house was left with dog fur all over the house. Dog fur all over the floor and carpet, tufted in the corners, on the furniture, and in the beds. I own 3 large dogs and have never seen a house with so much fur after 1 week. In addition, since it was raining during their stay, this group decided to avoid the rain and make BBQ ribs in the oven directly on the oven racks instead of using the multitude of roasting pans and baking sheets supplied in the house. They also broke a shelf on the living room furniture.

                                                  We have impeccable service and are always available to handle any issues or problems. When the guest called about the "black mold" in the Jacuzzi, it was explained that the black is pump dust caused by guests who turn on the jets without sufficient water in the tub. However, we offered to send a maid out immediately. The guest said it was not necessary. In addition, there is a blender in the house and multiple grill brushes.

                                                  We lost a full days rent ($380) and had to provide the next guest with alternative space due to the additional time required to clean up after this guest and her 3 dogs. She should have been charged the full pet deposit and additionally for the broken shelf and utter disregard for the oven. However, we only deducted $175 from her deposit. The rest was refunded to her within the time frame required by the rental agreement. Deposits and guests who trash houses are not profit centers for beautiful lake rentals.
