About Jamie Willis

Thank you for considering our lake house for your next vacation. This home is owned by avid Norris Lake boaters from Kentucky & Ohio. We spend about 50 nights per year on the water and love this place. We found that there is no better place to enjoy family & friends than at our lakehouse. We cant wait to get there and cry the blues when we have to leave (every single time).

We take very good care of the lake house and pride ourselves with it being one of the best on the water.

If you consider your party to be a 'model' renter, who will take care of the place like its your own and would like to enjoy a Vacation To Remember on Norris Lake, then book your rental with us.

Jamie Willis purchased this house boat in 2007

Why Jamie Willis chose Norris Lake

We had this home built in 2007 after vacationing on Norris for many years. The year prior we rented a floating house at another location and it was apparent that 'this is the way to go'.

What makes this house boat unique

It's absolutely gorgeous here!

You are on the water!

Dock your boat on the side or back of the house!

No more carrying supplies up and down hills!

Make the most of your vacation, saves time because you don't have to get to the water- you're already there!!!

It doesn't get any better than this!!! Top of the Line Floating House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Group Therapy last year (coming back again in 2017) and can say this house is great! The owners have taken great care to deck the house out with great features ranging from an under counter ice maker (saves trips to the marina), HUGE Weber Gas grill, stand up paddle board, awesome water slide and great furnishings. The bedrooms are well appointed and the loft was great for housing the kids!

BOAT LAUNCH: The owner recommended using the public boat launch up the road a short distance as opposed to the marina launch (Powell Valley is coming back to life, but the staff are nice!). This was a much easier ramp to use and I highly recommend for launching/retrieval. We pulled back over to the marina with our boat to unload the cars from the dock (no stairs!).

We have rented 3 other Floating Homes and nothing will compare to this one. Top notch amenities. Priceless, unobstructed view. Fabulous homeowners. Easy Load and unload community launch. Clean and decorated beautifully. We will be back :) Thank you again. Just need a bigger boat.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

1.). Property owner communicates extremely well.

2.). Property exceeded all of our expectations in every way.

3.). In our opinion this area of the lake is superior because it is far less crowded.

We have been going to Norris for several years and this is by far the best home we have stayed in!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is so amazing! We keep trying to think of something negative to say about it but can't think of anything. Everything about it is great and we can't wait until we return next year! Everything from the location to the cleanliness of the house to all of the amenities included were exceptional. Communication with the homeowner before and after our stay was easy and very helpful. Loved every minute of it!!!

Most folks that come to Norris Lake stay on the water or at the house. It's an incredibly beautiful lake, location and home. Recreation on the water and basking in the sun will fill your days with joy. However if one chooses to get out, there are plenty of activities, shopping, restaurants, etc., in Knoxville, which is only an hour away.
