Imagine sitting on your front deck with the picturesque views of the Cumberland Mountains while a bald eagle soars overhead. There are nesting eagles in the area and most days you will see them fly overhead or dive down to the water and grab a fish. Your boat is only a few feet away; the kids are able to swim without a walk to the pool all while you enjoy all the comforts of home. This is what life is like on Summer Retreat at Norris Lake. This is the perfect vacation; not only are you at the lake, but you are always on the lake. You are surrounded by the peacefulness and beauty of nature, your boat is a few feet away, and the kids are always entertained. Our house is nestled in a very quiet and peaceful part of the lake in a no-wake zone which makes it great for children to swim and very enjoyable to lay on a raft and relax.
This gorgeous floating home offers over 1,800 square feet of living area, with four bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a loft. You’ll enjoy the large kitchen that not only includes a full size refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and microwave but an ice maker that makes up to 50 lbs of ice per day. A large living room awaits you with a flat screen TV, DVD player, and a receiver that controls the interior and exterior speakers and has an iPod dock. There is also a full size washer and dryer and large gas grill. The exterior deck provides a walkway around the entire house with cleats for your boat(s).
One of the things you’re sure to enjoy is the large covered front deck along with the additional 12’ x 32’ sun deck in the front. It provides a great place for sunbathing, relaxing while enjoying the scenic views or a great place for the children to play. No need to worry about splinters on the decking surrounding this house, it’s all composite decking.
Summer Retreat has four bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms have queen size beds and the fourth bedroom has bunk beds with a full on the bottom and a twin on top. The loft includes four twin beds and a TV with a DVD player. This house sleeps twelve guests comfortably.
The first bathroom includes a double sink vanity with a tub/shower. The second bathroom includes a single sink vanity with a large shower.
Our house is open and spacious. The great room provides a place to relax or catch a movie. The large kitchen provides plenty of space to prepare a perfect meal with a dining area to accommodate everyone either at the kitchen bar (five bar stools) or at the dining room table that seats eight.
We supply just about everything you need including fresh linens, blankets and pillows for all of the beds. In the kitchen we provide dishes, glasses, silverware, pots, pans, cooking utensils, coffee pot and filters. There will be trash bags, dish soap, dish washer soap, dish towels and cloths, and a starter supply of toilet paper and paper towels. All you need to bring is your food and drinks, towels (bath and beach), toiletries, and extra toilet paper and paper towels. You may also want to bring your own DVD’s and don’t forget your iPod.
Summer Retreat is located at Powell Valley Resort which is one of, if not the easiest, marinas to drive to on Norris Lake. No long winding, narrow roads to navigate while towing your boat, just 2 short miles once you turn off of 63. If you’ve driven to other marinas at Norris Lake you will be pleasantly surprised.
