Property was nice, have an issue still unresolved

  • 3 of 5

The house was as advertised. It would be a bit tight with 16 people though. Very close to boat launch. Shortest trip on steps we have ever rented, around 90 some I believe.

Owner was easy to work with and corrected empty propane tank quickly. We only had one dishcloth and one dish towel for the whole week though. No reply to correct situation. Very little laundry detergent to try to keep it clean. 5 bath towels were found on the shelf with bleach stains on them and we were charged from damage deposit for them. There wasn't even bleach in the house for us to use and we didn't even wash any of them because of lack of detergent. Repeated messages to owner and still waiting for reply. Be careful and report every little thing that you find wrong.

Wonderful summer getaway to enjoy Lake Norris

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

June 2016 Trip

  • 5 of 5

-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.

Take a boat down Norris Lake, see the scenery on over 800 miles of shoreline around you and imagine a time long past, when the American Indians still roamed the mountains. As you ride across the 34,000 acres of beautiful clear lake water, dream about the days of Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett. Ski, fish, boat, jet-ski, swim, golf, and relax in the Foothills of the awesome Smoky Mountains. Enjoy your visit to Norris Lake in Tennessee!
