About the property

Best Location on Norris Lake for Water Sports and Fishing

This spacious home located at the top of Big Creek features 5 decks totaling over 1600 square feet of outdoor living overlooking Norris Lake. Decks include comfortable furniture, a fire pit, Weber grill and outdoor shower.

The home has an open floor plan with large kitchen/family room with gas fireplace. The kitchen is well equipped for large groups. The garage has been converted to a rec room with comfortable recliners, a large screen TV, ping pong table and sliding glass doors to a deck overlooking the lake.

There are six bedrooms, including two masters, all with comfortable bedding. The home sleeps 18 in real beds (no bunk beds, trundle beds or sleeper sofas).

There are stairs from the deck down to a private dock with large swim platform and year round deep water. Note because of the boat lift, the slip is not available for renters, but there are cleats and bumpers to tie your boat to the side of the dock. There are also two jet ski ports, a row boat and two kayaks available for your use.

Big creek is a quieter part of the lake and offers the some of the smoothest waters for skiing, wake-boarding, kayaking or taking a leisurely cruise. The area is also known for excellent fishing.

This area of the lake is less populated, offering smoother water and it is also only three miles from town for grocery shopping and restaurants. It is also an easy easy boat ride to Indian River, Whitman Hollow and Sequoyah marinas.

For larger groups there is the option to also rent the home next door which has includes two additional bedrooms. There are also additional properties available through other owners. If you may need extra space, please contact me to discuss.

About Chris & Carol Oberholzer

We have been visiting Norris Lake for 15 years looking for the right property for our large family. We finally found it in Flyers Landing

Chris & Carol Oberholzer purchased this house in 2014

Why Chris & Carol Oberholzer chose Norris Lake

Big creek is our favorite area on Norris Lake. Less homes and lots of smooth water for skiing, wake-boarding and tubing.

We immediately fell in love with the open floor plan, large decks for indoor, outdoor living and plenty of sleeping room.

Great House for a Family Gathering!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our Christmas get together in 2016. Our experience went great from the very beginning. The owners provided a renters information booklet which is the best that I have seen and was very helpful when you are new to the area. We had a total of six adults and 5 children and we had more than enough beds, bathrooms and room for everyone to relax and enjoy the time together. The house is very comfortable for large groups and the game room was definitely a hit. Our family spent a lot of time there playing ping-pong, games with the kids and watching TV. My wife and I especially enjoyed the large upstairs master bedroom and bath. The bunkhouse was also definitely a hit with our grandchildren. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed and the kitchen was large enough for multiple people to help out with the cooking. Stores are within a 5 to 10 minute drive which made picking up supplies easy. We are looking forward to coming back in the summer when we can enjoy the lake. The owners do an excellent job of maintaining this property and I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a clean, inviting and comfortable place to stay.

Fantastic Home. Great for a large family

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights over ThanksGiving (2016). We had a large group of people (16). There was enough space for us all to be together when we wanted and find our spaces when we needed to. Don (the care taker) was accessible all the time if we needed anything. The garage turned into a play area was great. The quality of all the furnishings in the house was top class. The access to water was great. Our kids loved getting down to the dock and just hanging out there. We highly recommend it and would love to go back there again.

Great place in the woods

  • 5 of 5

The Flyers-Landing house was very nice and roomy. It was very clean. It was conveniently located near the highway but far enough away to be very quiet and private. There was a short drive to major stores if you need anything that you may have forgotten. The private boat dock was very nice as we had rented a pontoon boat from Indian River Marina and docked it there each night. We had also brought a 19' speed boat that we could dock as well. The bunkhouse was very nice and it fit all of our older children and grandchildren with each to their own bed. The house was plenty large enough for our family of 14. The outside decks were beautiful and had multiple levels that overlooked the lake. The kitchen was well-stocked and the dining areas (inside and out) were quite large for everyone to eat together. We were fortunate to stay the week after labor day as the lake was calm and quiet. The garage is more of a carpeted game room than a garage. The neighbor/caretaker was very nice. The marina staff was courteous and helpful. Scheduling and communication by the owners, Chris and Carol, were excellent. They have managed to create a beautiful place to get away, even for Cincinnati Bearcat fans. I highly recommend.

Plenty of Room for All!

  • 5 of 5

This home on Norris Lake is spacious and comfortable. It accommodated 15 of us easily. There are 3 decks; one off one of the master suites, one off the "Barracks" room, and the third, a spacious deck on the main floor. The kitchen is well supplied with dishes, silver ware, glasses, cups, baking dishes, pots and pans and has two ovens and a microwave. Bedrooms vary in size and are comfortable. Everyone said they slept well. The outside shower was well done and was a great convenience. The game room/TV room got a lot of use by adults and kids. In addition to swimming from the dock, there are two kayaks and row boat for use plus a chest full of noodles, inflatables and other assorted gear. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The week just went by too fast!

Well maintained lake house with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Flyers landing for a long weekend with neighbors (11 kids, 10 adults) and had an absolute blast! The house was the perfect size and it was well maintained. We hung out on the dock during the day, while cruising around the beautiful Norris Lake. We commented many times on how beautiful (and super clear!) the lake was - so pretty!! At night we hung out on the huge decks and in the hanger. What a great place to stay - we will be back!

Great house, great owners.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Flyers Landing for our annual guy's trip Sept 17-20. The house was perfect - especially, "The Hangar"' , which is where we spent most of our time when not on the water. The owners could have been more patient or accommodating . Would highly recommend this property & owner.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the five star review. Not to pat myself on the back, but I am hoping you meant to say that the owners could NOT have been more patient or accommodating. Just wanted to clarify since VRBO does not allow reviews to be modified.
