Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

House is beautiful, Dock is amazing, the love and care that went into the construction and decorations at the house were much more than what we were expecting. Dave and Karen went way above and beyond what they had to working with us. We will be back next year!

Back yard is a little oasis. Huge dock and great private cove.

  • 4 of 5

The stay at Zetas cove was fantastic. Karen was great to work with. The view of the lake and ease of getting to the water are some of the best ive seen. The house is literally only 50 ft from the water and a nice new concrete /stone path make it easy for anyone to walk down. The fireplace area is great for kids and smores at night and the gazeebo is perfect for adults to play cards. My only cautions are the road is tight so much more than a 21' boat and you may struggle with the trailer. The covered slip may not fit your boat (but tons of other room) and lastly, although tons of sleeping space, there are really only 2 private bedrooms, at night one other could be considered semi private, but the arrangement does fit the house well and would work really well for two families or in my case two families and my mom. Great way to enjoy lake norris and I almost forgot location, location location. Springs dock, Deerfield, shang hi and powell valley are all within 15 minutes on the water.

improperly listed

  • 1 of 5

We (4 couples) rented this property listed as a 6 bedroom. The owner knew that it would be 4 couples staying at the house and she did not share that the house was in reality a 1 bedroom. There was only 1 bedroom with a window, closet and all walls and door. The other "rooms" contained beds. Our sleeping area was a big room with two beds that others walked through as we were sleeping. There was no privacy at all! Also upstairs bathroom shower was very short, and the downstairs bathroom did not have enough water pressure to wash my hair. The downstairs bathroom door locked when you closed took other people to let you out. We asked specifically if there was a dock with a boat slip. Our boat did not fit in the extra small slip. Again, the owner assured us that there was a a boat slip. It was a very disappointing week in an overpriced house. The only perks were the gazebo and the location on the lake. I would warn others that there is one private bedroom on the top floor and another room without a window on the bottom floor...all other beds are out in the open without any privacy.

Great location on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend with another family and the layout of the house with upper and lower finished bedrooms was perfect for two families with young children. The wrap around deck allows for ample shade throughout the day. The screened in gazebo was perfect for the kids to play games in and adults to relax in the evenings. The covered dock is narrow for most boats but still has plenty of area along the dock for tie-ups. Our group spent as much time out on the boat exploring as relaxing in the quiet cove. The location is a short boat ride to Springs Dock for evening ice cream. Be sure to pack extra kitchen utensils (tongs, can openers etc.) but all the basics are provided. We would definitely recommend to others and intend to return again. Thank you Karen for your prompt answers to all questions!

Beautiful View and Great House

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent lake house rentals, and this by far one of the best experiences. Karen was wonderful to rent from. She responded promptly and thoroughly answered any questions we had. The house was clean and well stocked. There were 6 of us and we had more space than we needed. The outdoor space was great and the dock was awesome for laying out and other lake fun. We had very spotty cell coverage and the house doesn't have wifi, but that is normal for the lake. We were very close to the jumping bridge, which we loved. The views were beautiful and I would definitely recommend this to friends/family.

Perfect for ANY Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of friends stay for a long weekend in August and it was the perfect house and location. We were only minutes from a public ramp to put our boat in, the house had everything included we could ever ask for. David and Karen were quick to answer any questions and made the whole entire process run smoothly. You are basically on your own private cove with tons of privacy, 3 separate deck areas, your own covered dock that could fit 3 or 4 boats and jetskies, and a screened in gazebo. We will definitely be back!!

Sits on an gentle slope with only a few steps down to the water to enjoy a fun filled day on the water. No steep steps to climb up and down, enjoy a peaceful evening rest in the gazebo after a fun filled day on the water...
