About the owner: My wife and I have lived in the Dayton, Ohio area for the past 30+ years. We grew up in the St. Mary's and Wapakoneta, Ohio area. I grew up on a dairy farm milking cows and working the farm everyday before and after school while juggling many sports activities as well. My wife worked at the Marina on Grand Lake St. Mary's for many years while in high school and college. We are both graduates of Miami University, in Oxford, Ohio. We spent the first three years post college as teachers and coaches in eastern Ohio. We have three grown children and seven grandchildren.
Why the Owner Chose Big Creek, La Follette, TN, USA:
The home and property is situated on a private peninsula with a gentle slope to the water and a very easy to navigate driveway. Also, the Big Creek area of the lake is free of all the congestion and boat traffic associated with other areas of the lake.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we started our search for a home on Norris Lake we looked at many properties on various areas of the lake. We looked at new homes, under construction homes and existing homes with an open mind regarding what we wanted in a lake house. Most of the homes we viewed had more bedrooms and baths and were priced lower than Tranquility Point but had steep driveways and/or many steps to the water. Every time we viewed this property and this house it just felt like home. Finally after viewing this property and home for the third time my wife and I looked at each other and said 'why are we continuing to look at other properties. This one feels like home'. The most redeeming feature of this property is the convenience that it offers families of all ages. The gentle slope to the water with no steps is hard to find on the lake. The private boat ramp and convenience of launching and retrieving your boat from the property is another hard to find feature on the lake. The ample parking for cars and boat trailers on the property is another plus compared to many homes we viewed. Many of the homes we have rented in the past have had many steps to the water and steep driveways that made navigating the property a challenge. Not here at Tranquility Point. The gentle slope of the driveway and the private wooded peninsula is a homeowners dream. And then there is the amazing views from virtually every room in the home. The Big Creek area of Norris Lake is peaceful without all the congestion and boat traffic of other areas on the lake. When we factored all these unique features into our decision, this was the perfect place.
