About Rob Dawson

My family discovered Norris lake just a few years before we purchased this home. Like many others, after our first trip to Norris lake we were hooked. We visited for a few years and decided that having our own place to visit and share with others was something we had to have.

Rob Dawson purchased this house in 2013

Why Rob Dawson chose LaFollette

My wife and I looked at so many houses before purchasing this one. Many things about this house stood out above others. First is its location. The Big Creek area is much less crowded than many areas on Norris (particularly the Deerfield area where there are many more rentals). In addition it is so much closer to the interstate than many of the Lafollette rentals which equals less driving and more playing. The driveway is nice and flat and there is a two car garage.

What makes this house unique

Tankless hot water heater so the whole group can get a hot shower or bath. A two car garage. Smart TV. High speed internet. Convenient to stores, restaurants and marinas. Truly a home that I could live in, not your typical rental property. Hot tub recently added. We continue to make this awesome home even better for your enjoyment.

Dream Lake Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

House easily accommodated 6 adults and 8 kids. Everyone had a blast on the dock. Every person jumped off the dock and rode the slide. We rented a pontoon and tube from Whitman Hollow Marina. You must boat on this gorgeous lake. The water is so clear and warm. We are already planning on returning to Norris Lake next summer. Only problem we had was the walk down to the dock from the home. Actually, its the walk up that is difficult. But this is typical of almost every house on Norris Lake. It is just the way the land is. Overall, this house was exactly what we were looking for. It was clean and comfy for 14-15 people. You'll love it at Dawson's Creek. All the kids said, "No more beach vacations, we love the lake!" And the adults agree too.

Best House on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at this beautiful home. The owners are very organized and so easy to work with. The house is spotless. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the kitchen has everything you need to make wonderful meals. They even have a spare fridge in the garage so there is plenty of room for all your food and drinks for the week. The driveway is HUGE and was perfect for our trailer and cars. The dock blew us away and my kids loved jumping off the top level and sliding down the slide. The hot tube was also a great way to end each day. We have only ever rented in Deerfield but we are so glad we tried something new. Big Creek is our new favorite and we hope to rent this home every year.

A Slice Of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

WOW! My family stayed at "Dawson's Creek" over Labor Day week. Our visit really was perfect in every way. The home was very clean, updated, quiet, comfortable and attractive. It has a lovely deck with gorgeous views of the lake where we spent our mornings drinking coffee. The kitchen is well-equipped. Beds were beyond comfortable. We are so grateful to the owners for allowing us to stay at their lovely property! I had a couple questions about the area and the owner was prompt in their replies and super helpful on making suggestions for dining and family-fun activities. We will treasure this vacation forever. Did I mention the water slide rocked? We will never be able to repay the owners for sharing this amazing home with us. We will forever be grateful.

Lovely lake house.

We had our family vacation at Norris and had a great time. The house was clean and well-maintained. The layout was great for our family. The dock was one of the best docks we have had on vacation. It was a fun vacation. Thanks!

Beautiful home, Beautiful property, Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

This property is one of a kind. It is designed to allow everyone to enjoy hanging out together with the kitchen, dinette, and great room all together. But allows for time apart with the second family room in the walkout basement. The house could be featured on HGTV, with its decor and furnishings. It had a fully furnished kitchen, bath towels for all, and plentiful parking for two trailers and 4 trucks. You couldn't beat the winding path down to the two story, 2 slip covered dock, with a slide off the second level. The only possible negative I could say, is the dock is on the edge of the main channel and the inlet, so you would get some wakes from passing boats. If you want complete protection, this is not the place, but this has one of the nicest docks and is one of the nicest houses on the lake. Not to mention the location...minutes from Whitman Hollow and Sequoia Marinas. This truly is the place to be.

As far as the listing...It was accurate in all aspects. The owner and property manager did respond in a timely manner when we had questions. We would definitely come back and recommend this house!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is first class in every way. The home is very elegant, with beautiful finishes throughout. The kitchen is high-end with new stainless appliances, granite counters, plenty of prep space and the table will easily seat 10 (possibly 12) people with 3 more seats at the bar. Views from the house are spectacular and large deck off the back is the trex-type so very comfortable and has plenty of seating for morning coffee or after dinner conversation. The master suite is incredible and 3 other queen or king rooms have bathrooms attached or nearby. The loft above the garage (5 beds for 6 people) is nice but got a little warm and those occupants must share the bathroom with the 1 downstairs. There is only a tv in the master bedroom which wasn't a issue for us but might be for some. The tv in the main family room was a little tricky to operate. The trek to the dock is challenging even though paved part of the way. It's very steep, but with the help of a rented golf cart, my 70+ year old parents were able to navigate with some help walking on the stepping stones and concrete steps at the bottom. The dock is phenomenal and possibly the nicest one we saw on the lake. Plenty of room for our boat, a rented pontoon, and our 2 Jet skis. The kids enjoyed the slide, and the electric outlet for their music. There is a large area on the bottom for all your "toys" and sunning, and a huge upper deck with several lounge chairs. The lake speaks for itself. I've never seen a cleaner, more beautiful lake. Overall, a wonderful vacation spot.
