Beautiful, quaint house on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in July. We boated and took our ATVs for riding at Royal Blue. We had an amazing time. The house was perfect for us. We spent most of our time outside on the deck. There are 75 steps to the water but it was not real steep. While boating we saw houses that had many more, much steeper steps. We had 4 adults and 2 kids and the house was a sufficient size. It was exactly as described. Thank you for a great vacation rental!!

Owner's Response: We are really glad you guys enjoyed yourselves! Also happy that you were able to take advantage of the many activities Campbell County has to offer! I know that some folks think the steps are steep, and if we were in Florida, they would be! But all in all, we do have one of the more gently sloping lots on Norris Lake. Hope you consider us again for next year. - Linda

This is our 3rd time staying here. That tells you that we really enjoy this place. Having the dock for our boat. We had our 3 and 5 year old grandsons that loved. Hope to have a 4th visit in the future

We loved it

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this property the week after the 4th of July. The house was cozy and inviting. Steps weren't too bad and the dock was great for our pontoon boat and jet ski. Only a few minute ride to the nearest marina (Indian River). The ice maker was great!!!

Lake access - best part of big creek

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean and a lot of attention to details (hooks for towels/clothes, ice maker, speakers on deck, plenty of linens and enough household items to get by with meals). Charming details and decor. Definately a place to just be comfortable with the family. We love traveling with our dog, who enjoyed the walks to the boat dock. The dock is in great shape, with a cover and decent bumpers and room to hang out. We enjoy this part of the lake. Close to Indian River Marina (they currently are having some staffing issues but normally we like) and Whitman Hollow for a good Froggie's margarita. Lots of smooth water for skiing/wakeboarding. Pretty views off the deck where we had our dinners. Owners are very attentive and responsive to issues when we called them. (just letting them know something wasn't working - but we didn't need). This was our second time renting here.

Wonderful Memorial Day weekend with awesome views.

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 people and 2 dogs stay over Memorial Day weekend and had a blast. Linda and Ray were there to meet us at check-in. We had originally asked for an air mattress but it was forgotten. Luckily we had one packed with us so it wasn't a problem. The house was very clean and everything in the house worked properly. We spent most of the time on the deck because it was a great view and the weather was great. The slope down to the dock is larger that the pictures make it seem but there are stairs to get down. It still has one of the easiest hills to manage to get down to the water on Norris Lake. The shoreline was mostly rock which made it hard for the dogs to get in but they managed. The covered dock provided shade from the sun for those who wanted it and a good jumping off point for anyone else looking to swim. The dock does sit on the main tailwater channel so the boat traffic gets intense during the day, but usually for just a couple of hours.

Will definitely consider renting again.
