About the property

6 Bedrooms, 5 full Baths; 2 half baths Sleeps 18

Two year old 4,000 sq. ft. private lakefront home has everything you are looking for. It features breathtaking views of the lake and mountains from each of the two large deck levels partially covered and the floor to cathedral ceiling windows in the great room. Our gorgeous home is situated on a very gentle slope with no steps to climb, ensuring that you aren't so exhausted that you can't enjoy the lake. For those who prefer not to talk path, we have a golf cart for rent. (See details below) There is a path to the private boat dock which features a slip for renters and a swim platform and a jet ski dock. Close to the dock is a lovely, shaded patio with table and chairs and swing and hammock close by. Great to relax and watch family on dock and playing in the water. The boat slips will have cover in the fall of 2017.

Beautiful lakeside home with plenty of room. Lots of things to do for entertainment. Wish we had more time to stay. Owners seem to be very nice and concerned with how our stay went. WE WILL BE BACK....

Our family has been to Norris Lake multiple time, we have stayed at numerous location, usually trying to stay near flat hollow because we like the quiet water. This house was by far our favorite. We will no doubt continue to vacation at this property from now on. The location was fantastic. We loved not having to travel thru a no wake zone every day. Plus the absence of stairs!!!! As we get older we cannot handle the climb to other homes. We had a group of 13. The beds and baths were abundant. Thank you to Jeanne for sharing your lovely home.

Perfect Family Home

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a week in June 2015 and this was our first visit to Norris. Everyone agreed that this was one of our favorite family vacations and we look forward to returning. We were a group of 8 adults and 5 kids (ranging in ages from 3-17). This house was perfect for our group. The setup of bedrooms and bathrooms was very well planned when the home was built and it is obvious this home was built with groups or larger families in mind. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking tools and appliances. And the best part, there are not a ton of stairs to climb at the end of the day when you are tired from being on the water! We realized this is kind of rare in this area! The house had everything you could hope for to enjoy a week of the "lake life".

We were able to easily rent a boat, jet ski and tube from Flat Hollow Marina (very friendly people), which is not too far from the house. The dock at the house had plenty of room for these things, with space left over to fish, swim, sit and relax.

The only time we really left the comfort of the house was to get out on the beautiful lake. The water was so clean and surprisingly warm for swimming. We spent nearly every day on the water. Then we returned back to the house in the evenings to grill out and have s'mores by the fire. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing week.

We happened to be lucky enough to meet one of the owners in person as we were arriving and he was super friendly and answered a few questions for us. However, had we not been able to meet him, his wife also checked in with us during the week, by phone, to make sure we had what we needed and to ensure we were having a great time. The owners were all around very friendly and helpful. My husband and I have rented many homes before through VRBO, and this was probably one of our best experiences, so far, in dealing with the owners. You can tell they really care about their home and want people that are visiting to have a great time.

Overall, this was an excellent trip and we all look forward to returning. Hopefully when we are ready to return, this home is available. I am almost hesitant to leave such a great review, because once this hidden gem of a house gets more noticed, I am afraid it will be hard to book in the future because it will be so popular! Big thanks to the owners for such a wonderful experience!
