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.

Great house! Beautiful Lake!

  • 5 of 5

The house was comfortable and the perfect size for our group. We loved it and would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the area. Just don't forget to bring your own supplies at stated. We have never stayed anywhere with a kitchen that didn't have dish cloths and towels, so no-one remembered to bring them. Fortunately, we had plenty of paper towels, so we made do. Two refrigerators was a nice bonus. Good price for a great house!

Nice place, good location

  • 5 of 5

Nice house, good location on the lake. The roads to get to the house get narrow and curvy but that's typical for most places that I've been on Norris Lake. Pete was very good to work with.

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 !!!
