Fantastic! Couldn't have asked for a better house to stay in.

John and Barbie that take care of the property were unbelievable to work with. They were there to meet us when we arrived and were an absolute pleasure to meet. I'd reccomend this place for anyone. The only downside was no wifi and no cell service but we ended up being ok with that. It was nice to disconnect for a few days. We will be back!

Great location and privacy

  • 4 of 5

Our large family enjoyed a 3 day weekend in August and it was very spacious. There were plenty of bathrooms and bedrooms to accommodate 20 of us! We enjoyed the outside deck for our morning coffee as well. The only complaint was the sitting area in the living room. You literally sunk to the floor when you sat on the couches.They were extremely uncomfortable which made it difficult for us to gather around in one room.

The ice machine and the extra refrigerators were awesome!!! The private dock was very nice too!!

Labor Day weekend 2015

  • 5 of 5

We checked in on Friday and were greeted by Barbie and John with open arms. The house is in a beautiful spot and is well kept, modern and clean. Once we unpacked and got the boats in the water the fun was on. When evening came we started dinner and realized the kitchen was awesomely equiped with everything thing you need to prepare a meal for 11 people. Only complaint about the kitchen was from the chef, he said the stove was very finicky and hard to predict/control. Everyone in the party was happy with their rooms and the comfort of the beds. John actually stays next door on his houseboat and is quite the character, he will make you laugh till you can't breath. Great guy! He was helpful and very accomodating to our needs. We liked him so much, we took him breakfast on the two mornings we made it. All in all we had a great stay. It went buy in flash and we all left sad that our time was over. We will be back as soon as we can make it happen for sure. Oh and I almost forgot, the parking is the best we have seen at Norris lake. Big lot across the street and plenty of room in the driveway and garage. Thanks for the hospitality John and barbie.

Beautiful house and location

We had a wonderful stay at "The Lure". John and Barbie were wonderful hosts. The house had everything we needed and was extremely clean. There was plenty of space for our extended family. We hope to come back in the future!

perfect vacation house fully stocked!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best home we ever have rented on Norris lake! The ice machine is awesome, we never had to buy ice. The house is beautiful with plenty of space and comes with everything you need to cook and clean with. The dock is great with space for everything we had (2 boats, floating island raft and plenty of floats, plus space for all 12 of us). Very nice big double level deck and nice steps to the lake(not many steps, easy for kids to walk on). The property managers were great as well, Barbie and John keep the place in great clean condition and are helpful and nice! Overall this place was great and I would recommend it to anyone, we will be back in the future!

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting properties on Tennessee lakes for roughly 13 years with two other families, and this home is one of our favorites. The ice machine and three refridgerators were bonus features to a well stocked, clean, and well maintained home. The property managers are wonderful to work with and we enjoyed talking with John when he went out on his evening walks. We have stayed in this area of the lake previously and enjoy the quite cove, while Flat Hollow marina is close by. In addition, there is a public boat ramp about 1/2 mile away which is very convenient!
