About John Bertke

John Bertke lives in Dayton Ohio and enjoys visiting Norris with his friends and family. He enjoys fishing and smoking cigars. He took over management of this property in early 2014.

Why John Bertke chose Lakeside Estates

They say 'location' means everything. "Wake Dreams" cabin is 7 minutes from the city of Lafollette, 5 minutes from the main road, inside a gated community, right on the water's edge, and a boat ramp just around the corner.

What makes this cabin unique

I'm an avid fly fisher, my wife loves to golf, and my daughters never tire from wake surfing so my whole family stays happy when we visit Norris Lake.

Big Dipper was beautiful and perfect size for a large family.

  • 5 of 5

The layout of this cabin was perfect. We had plenty of space for everyone to be able to have quiet space and then together time. The hot tub was perfect and was enjoyed. The outdoors was perfect for our teenage boys to enjoy fishing, exploring. The cabin was well stocked and enjoyed by all. The two fireplaces were enjoyed on both levels. John, our contact, was very helpful and there to answer any questions, concerns. Wonderful experience and we highly recommend this location.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family reunion. The cabin slept 28 people and we had 24 total attend. It had everything we needed for cooking and BBQing. The firepit was very nice. It did have a lot of steps to get down to the dock but once you got use to going up and down it wasn't bad. The boat dock and swim plank was very nice. The lake water was perfect for swimming, paddle boarding and jet skiing. It is handicap accessible but not handicap friendly. My mom who is in a wheel chair could not go to any of the other floors except the main floor. We did carry her down to the next floor down so she could sit on the covered deck. The upper deck is not covered except with an umbrella. It got hot. Her bathroom was not set up for a handicap person. It would have been better to have just a shower instead of a tub and to add hand rails. Also the upper deck floor should be covered with something so that when it rains the next 2 decks down can still be used for sitting out and not getting wet. These are mainly just suggestions in case you decide to update the cabin. The person I dealt with, John Berke, was such a pleasant experience and he goes out of his way to make sure your stay is perfect. I had no issues with him and I would definitely recommend using him to rent one of the many cabins that he manages. All in all our trip was a huge success and I would love to go back again and visit the area which is gorgeous.
