About Greg Bruce
My wife and I live about 15 minutes from the property, making it easy to assist guests during their stay. We are very familiar with the area and always happy to offer suggestions about local entertainment and events!
Greg Bruce purchased this Cabin in 2002
Why Greg Bruce chose Big Creek
We bought this property from parent's estate. Home was built by my wife's father. One of the choice lots in Big Creek one. He was the second person to buy property here and got what is considered the best two lots on the Big Creek site. Sits on a point about midway between Point 7 and 5. 10 minutes by boat from Norris Dam. 7 minutes by boat from Sequoyah Marina, Home of Fire on the Water 4th of July weekend fireworks extravaganza. Convenient to several Marinas, including Sequoyah, Whitman Hollow, and Shanghai. Drive times are Cincinnati 4 hours, Dayton 5 hours, Atlanta 4 hours,
What makes this Cabin unique
Centrally located so it's easy to get to any area of the lake by boat in a reasonable amount of time. Secluded with only three homes on a cul-de-sac. We're the last house at the end of the road. The way the house is situated you can't see any other homes from the upper or lower deck.

This was a lovely cabin to come home to after long days on the water. (Unfortunately we had severe storms at the end of our stay, and there was no power from early Friday evening until Saturday morning.) The trek to and from the dock every day wasn’t so bad, but walking back up would probably not be so easy for anyone with health issues or for the elderly. We were so glad to read about the history of this lovely cabin...what a great story!! Thank you for making your home available to us!!
Cozy home located in a great spot, no WiFi on the lake just FYI, very fun lake to cruse we went 240 miles
Cute, clean and tucked away!
Great! Just as described! Everything was great. Nice and tucked away. Easy to book and great to work with!
This home is adorable!!! The loft bedroom was a hit with our oldest. The walk to the lake is very challenging. Huge hill to navigate. It was quite exhausting. Once on the lake it is gorgeous especially at night. There is a lot of boat traffic all week. Not good for fishing. There is a floating dock if you want to try fishing & it is deep enough to jump off of. Had fun floating especially with the waves but we didn't catch anything. Neighbors are close but there wasn't anyone there during our stay. It was nice to be able to bring our dogs. Now the not so good stuff... The house needs some minor repairs. The door handle to the upper deck from the loft bedroom was very loose & difficult to lock/unlock. The faucet in the upstairs bathroom was broke. The "bar" for the shelves in the fridge were duct taped to hold food in which did not work. Food fell out if you put it in the door. Freezer was the same way. The ant problem was not so bad. The owner did what they could to prevent it but you're in the woods on a lake. There will be bugs but it wasn't bad. There are not many TV channels to view. However we weren't there to watch TV. We ran out of propane for the grill but the owners responded promptly! Overall it was a good stay. If the minor repairs were taken care of I would give this a 4-5 star rating.
very nice quiet location house very nice some of the furniture needs replaced.
The property we rented from you was very nice a beautiful view of the lake.. we enjoyed our stay very much. We realize that with rental properties things get broken however it would have been nice if after our rental agreement had been completed
you would have given us a list of the items in the house that you knew were broken. The house was not very clean on our arrival, we spent quite a bit of time cleaning . The grill was very nice however it was very dirty, and had to be cleaned before we could use it At the bottom of the yard almost in the center there is a stump of a tree, there is a nest of yellow jackets in that stump, I know because I was stung several times by them. Your dock needs some repair. We made every effort when we left to leave the property in as good or better condition than we found it. During our stay a young male who identified himself as your son walked in the house on my wife unannounced, he said he knocked on the front door and got no answer so he walked around and entered by the deck door Needless to say my wife was very surprised at seeing someone standing in the house when she came out of the bathroom (not very professional). There is a phone in the house it would have been nice to have received a call to let us know that someone was coming by to pick up property This could have been a very dangerous situation for one or both individuals. We would rent your house again given the opportunity.
Our Thompson vacation at Big Creek
We had a very nice time and the gift basket and refreshments were a nice touch. Listing description was accurate. Property was clean and taken care of. Beautiful view of lake. We would stay here again. Did have a lot of boat traffic.
