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 LaFollette

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, nestled in trees, right on the water's edge.

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 'Wake Dreams' Norris.

Perfect location, perfect house, perfect vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We've been going to Norris Lake for five years now and this was by far our favorite house we've stayed in. The house comfortably held four families and had everything you could possibly want. Plenty of bathrooms, plenty of deck space, plenty of TVs, and most importantly, not a million stairs to get to the water and your own boat dock big enough to hold three boats.

The house is located just up the channel from the "Jumping Bridge" but is tucked away in a quiet cove if you just want to swim off the dock with the kids. Just minutes from Sugar Hollow, Shanghai and Springs Dock, you couldn't ask for a better location. After six days of heaven we didn't want to leave and cannot wait to go back, to this house specifically.

Thank you!!!!!

If you want fun rent Be As You Are

  • 5 of 5

My group has rented from Norris Lake Villas and stayed in their properties for every Memorial Day Weekend for six years in a row. Our experience gets better and better every year. From the moment you arrive you are instantly relaxed. The properties are fantastic shape and are a better value than what you receive with other rentals in the area. The commute is right off the main road and it is easy to arrive. The property is set up for fun. They thought of everything from the surround system to the docks on the water. If you have a big group or its just your family this property is for you.

Relaxing Stay @ Be As you are.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for one last long weekend get away before the kids went back to school. We had an awesome time at this rental including, swimming in the quiet waters by the dock, fishing off the dock and hanging out in the wonderful home. After a day of enjoying the wonderful waters of Norris Lake we enjoyed relaxing in the Hot Tub, sitting on the deck and then everyone relaxing together in the living room. Plenty of space for our 4 families with 7 adults and 6 kids.

Prior to leaving our son advised he had lost this ipod, we looked for an hour to find with no luck. I reached out to the owners to let them know to be on the lookout if the cleaning crew found. The owners were very responsive and the cleaning company found this and sent it to us.

I would recommend this as a location to relax and enjoy Norris Lake!
