Overview

About the property

7 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 22 on beds

Our Norris Lake Vacation Rental Home has three floors each with bedrooms and a full bath. We have recently built an additional large three-bedroom, two-bath wing onto the house. This arrangement works very well for one or more families vacationing together.

We can rent the house with all seven bedrooms, or as the original 4BR/3BA arrangement by closing off the new addition. We reserve the right to only rent the full house during the peak season to maximize the use of the entire house.

The main floor consists of a large kitchen, a dining area that opens into the great room, all on hard wood floors. The bedroom has a queen-size bed and dresser. There is also a full bath and a laundry room.

The upstairs has the master bedroom which includes a king-size bed, writing table and a large bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and a separate shower.

The basement has two bedrooms with two queen beds each. They share a full bath. Outside of the bedroom is a pool table and television.

The new addition consists of a master suite with king bed and its own bathroom. Two additional bedrooms each have two queen beds and doors opening to the lakeside deck. The bedrooms share the second bathroom in the addition.

The large kitchen has all modern amenities including two refrigerators (see features below).

The smoke-free house is located where the Powell River and Davis Creek meet, about ten minutes down river from Flat Hollow Marina, and 15 minutes north of Springs Boat Dock. Both marinas have pumps, watercraft for rent and a grill. Additionally, you may bring your own boat and dock it in one of two covered slips provided at the base of the stairs leading from the house to the lake. The nearest ramp to launch a boat is a half mile from our driveway.

If you enjoy recreation on the lawn, there is a half-acre area beside the driveway ideal for horseshoes, crocket, badminton or the like.

This Norris Lake Vacation Rental has over 240 feet of shoreline and is set on five acres for maximum privacy. You will enjoy exploring the beautiful blue-green waters that span more than 800 miles of shoreline covering 34,000 acres. Across the lake from the house is the Chuck Swan Wildlife Management Area, which occupies 24,444 acres on the Central Peninsula on the east shores of Norris Lake. Sit on the wraparound deck facing the lake and enjoy the tranquility.

It is an everyday occurrence to see deer, turkey and a lot of other animals feeding and watering all around the lake. That is what makes Norris Lake an ideal environment for nature lovers, sportsmen and vacationers alike.

There is always something to do on the lake! The fishing is great here at Norris Lake, year round and offers an abundance of Striped Bass (rockfish), Largemouth, Small-Mouth and Spotted Bass, the Walleye, Crappie, Catfish and Bluegill (bream).

Not quite the fisherman? Not a problem. There are plenty of things to do on site at Norris Lake or in the surrounding area. Listed below are just a few of things you might find.

Beautiful home and a great location!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property in August 2017. We were a large group of four families vacationing together. The home is very spacious and we had adequate room for dining and sleeping. The boat dock was perfect and the water was very warm and fun to boat and swim in. Pete was great to work with and our kids have this vacation listed as one of there all time favorites. Thanks Pete!

beautiful Lakefront home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our summer vacation. There was 20 of us, 7 adults and 13 kids from 4 to 17 years of age. The house was laid out so none of the 20 people we had there got cramped. The kitchen was equipped with anything we needed to cook for a large group with large dinner table. The nearby boat launch was great. There is a marine about 5 min. by water which was great. We had a jet ski and 3 kayaks so the jet ski docks were great to store when not in use. There is a lot of fish around the dock so the kids catch as many as they wanted to. We caught a few large fish from the dock also. We rented a pontoon boat for one day which was well worth the money. We went to Cedar Creek Bridge and jumped also found lots of rope swings around the lake. Even if you don’t have a boat the Cedar Bridge is a must see.

The owner (Pete) has to be one of the best people I have ever rental from. Pete was very easy to deal with when setting up the vacation. We tripped a breaker and he was there with couple hours to fix. Pete always called ahead of time before coming by the house. This home is well maintained and clean.

Thank you Pete for professional demeanor and kindness in helping us have a great vacation. We definitely would stay here again !!!

Spacious and beautiful home for family of 20.

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our Thanksgiving family reunion. With 20 people coming from 5 different states it was the perfect place for us to meet, relax and catch up. The home had plenty of room for all the kids and adults without anyone feeling cramped or on top of each other. The kitchen is very well stocked and perfect for cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner our large family. The views from the balcony were beautiful and the dock was perfect for fishing and just enjoying the lake. Being able to come together with our parents, brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews without the stress of getting one of our homes ready was relaxing and refreshing. Renting from Peter was very easy. He never got frustrated with my many questions as we planned for the trip. He was always very willing to help even on the day of arrival. We may have just started a new family tradition. Thank you Peter for giving our family the perfect vacation.

Large home on lake Norris

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this house on Norris Lake. The kitchen was well equipped with pots, pan, dishes etc. and a 2nd refrigerator was very nice. Plenty of parking was very nice and the nearby boat launch was convenient. A few recommendations would be to have at least a few chairs down on the dock. A clothes line would come in handy. The deck and patio furniture could use a thorough cleaning !!! Just a warning if you have little ones as we only had one luckily…the deck railings aren't close together therefore babies and toddlers can fall through them easily. The location on the lake was very nice as well.

Four families and a lot of fun!

  • 4 of 5

Four families and a lot of fun! (7 adults, 2 children)

We loved the layout of the house, which allowed not only personal space, but temperature zones as well. The house had more than adequate space for everyone to park in a perfect spot, whether on the deck, in the living room, or down on the dock. The boat launch was super accessible and convenient plus the dock has a manageable number of stairs. Swimming from the dock was lovely and the water just divine.

This house is obviously loved and cared for personally, as there were many touches one doesn't often find in a rental unit. The rooms were exceptionally clean and the house in good repair.

My heat loving dad enjoyed the master suite and those who love sleeping refrigerator style thought the basement was perfect! Bathrooms on each floor made sharing among four families quite doable!

The only things I think this place is missing is a clothes line on the lower back porch, and some food storage containers (tupperware/gladware, etc.). Several light bulbs were burned out, but it didn't affect us much.

**Cell phone reception is NOT very strong - only the Verizon phone among us got a fair signal. AT&T/Sprint had none. Addition of wifi would make this a perfect spot!!

Our only single (and unanimous) complaint was the super slippery sheets and comforters, while although warm, constantly slipped off the beds during the night.

Also, I would recommend that the instructions to the house for anyone towing a boat should suggest the SECOND right, vs. the first because the second street has only two hairpins whereas the first has numerous.

Thanks Pete, for your great management! We definitely would love to stay here again!!!
