Peaceful

  • 3 of 5

The lake and mountain view is great! It was tranquil and peaceful. The kitchen is nice, oven was not clean, my wife cleaned it. The biggest issue was the hot tub; the reason why we chose the home was for that. Unfortunately it broke down the 2nd day we were there! The Jacuzzi tub looked poorly maintained-the access panel was only held on by one screw, the water was leaking from under the unit, thus the temperature never would rise up to be nice and hot, especially having to add water to it often. Then the circuit breaker started tripping and we could not use the jacuzzi at all! Again the main thing we love for a vacation is use of a jacuzzi tub.I personally believe the owner should of given us additional funds back due to the jacuzzi condition being unusable It is hard to believe they could not of gotten somebody sooner to repair the jacuzzi sooner? I was told they would not come out till after we left the following week? My wife even cleaned the bath tub, vacuumed the floors and cleaned the kitchen even cleaner than we arrived. Ray and Linda the owners are nice people, the lake is nice, and for the price they should provide at least a boat to use maybe with a small fee, and at least some kind of wifi internet. A large TV would of been nice as well. I had to pay overage charges on my cellular service due to no wifi during my stay there. Overall I would of given it 4 stars if the jacuzzi worked. I also recommend a lower rate per night, seemed a bit high for the overall home. I didn't realize by paying with a credit card I would be charged fifty dollars for the rental, but it is disclaimed prior to purchase which I didn't see it initially. I don't know how else one would pay for the rental? Check? Bank draft? Fee seems very high to me. Again, overall a good home and location on the lake and it was peaceful for our time of stay. Thanks Ray and Linda. maybe if we rent again there will be improvements; wifi, jacuzzi working efficiently, and a bit more cleaner? I recommend changing out the white rug throughout the home, especially in the kitchen, its not a good color for high traffic and cooking. Just my 2 cents... Thanks! :)

Owner's Response: Hey Robert – Our deepest apologies about the mal-functioning hot tub! One of the advantages of being in a rural setting where it is peaceful, on the lake, with a beautiful view of the mountains, is you are somewhat isolated from things easily accessible in a more urban surrounding – such as WiFi and easy access to qualified servicemen. When you can find one, they are typically very busy. As far as the maintenance of the hot tub goes, just want to make sure you understand that the tub is drained and sanitized after every guest. Sorry you felt the oven was not clean enough for you. Since time is limited between quests, we typically only take care of major spills left in the oven that could cause a problem when the oven is turned on. It simply doesn’t make sense to make it spic and span each time it is used. We appreciate your wife cleaning the bathtub after your visit and vacuuming the carpet. We always have the carpet and upholstery cleaned at the beginning of each rental season and we try to spot clean throughout the summer. I understand that a light color carpet is typically not appropriate in this environment and something we would not have chosen ourselves. But, the carpet was in the house when we purchased it and is in too good of a condition to replace it with something else. A little confused about your comment about “white carpet in the kitchen” as the kitchen flooring is vinyl. We haven’t had any negative comments about the size of the TV as most of our guests are there to enjoy the lake and the view from the deck; the size of the TV has never been an issue for them. We do mention about the charge for using credit cards in the “notes” section on our VRBO page as there is not another place other than the notes section to mention it. There is an option given by VRBO to pay by e-check with no additional fees involved. You might want to consider that option next time you book thru VRBO. Because of the mal-functioning hot tub, we did, in fact, eliminate the credit card usage fee for the 2 quests staying after you. There was an issue with the carpet after you left that prevented us from refunding the $50.00 to you as it was needed to take care of the issue. As a side note, you might want to take your dog to the vet to have its anal glands cleaned as we do with our dog.

Can't wait to go back again. This is our second time going. We took our 3 1/2 year old grandson and he absolutely loved "the lake house" We also took our little dog who loved going on vacation with us. We plan on going back again. The hot tub and ice machine are great extra's.

Great location, perfect little house.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a long weekend with my girlfriend and dog. Absolutely loved our stay there. Ray and Linda were very responsive and gave us a tour of the house when we arrived. Very friendly folks. The dock was PERFECT for our dog to get his running leap into the water. Ice machine was clutch! The location is very quiet compared to other areas of the lake, was a quick 5 minute boat ride to the Indian River Marina. Rented boat from their friend JoAnne. Everything went really well. Will definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

Thanks Ray and Linda!

Clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Been renting at Norris Lake for 25 years. This is one of the best places I have stayed on the lake. A relatively easy drive from Lafollette. Ice machine came in handy. Property managers Linda and Ray were very nice folks and responsive to any concerns. Great to share vacation with our canine companions. Lost count how many times our Golden jumped off the dock! Speaking of the dock it is top notch. Composite decking, covered slip and swim ladder. Hope we have the opportunity to return.

Owner's Response: Really glad you and your family, and of course your canine family members, enjoyed your stay! The ice machine is a great plus; makes it more convenient for our guests. We too hope you get to visit again.

Peaceful, easy feeling ...

  • 5 of 5

For the past three summers, our family has vacationed at this property. It is a great place to get away from it all and just enjoy the simple pleasures of lake life. The location on the lake is particularly convenient--close to two marinas, close to the public dock and beach, and, if you forget something, 15 minutes from local stores. Big Creek is an awesome part to the lake to teach kids to waterski and wake surf. The house is very comfortable and clean--it has all the amenities you will need to get away and have a peaceful, easy vacation.
