Overview

About the property

5 bedroom 3 bath 3000 square foot home in the prestigious Cove Pointe community

*** Reservations for 2018 will begin after Thanksgiving 2017 ***

This 3000 square foot home sits on 2 lots in the prestigious Cove Pointe subdivision. There are 5 bedrooms and 3 baths and a large open concept living area. There is a large wrap around deck with impressive views of the Big Creek area of the lake. The house faces west so you will see some of the most stunning sunsets that Norris can offer.

The house offers 3 queen beds, 1 king bed, and 2 set of bunk beds for the kids. Linens and pillows are provided. There are 3 flat screen TV’s with Direct TV: one in the Master suite, one on the main level, and one in the bunk room. Each TV has a DVD player attached and there are plenty of DVD’s for you to use on those days when you just want to relax and watch a movie.

The house is fully stocked with dishes, silver ware, and cooking utensils. In addition there are the usual items, including a toaster, 2 coffee makers, blender, and microwave. On the main house deck you will find 2 grills to suit your outdoor cooking needs (one is a commercial grade propane grill and the other is a large charcoal grill). The house also has 2 refrigerators, one in the kitchen and the other in the lower level utility room. The fridge in the kitchen has an Ice maker but there are also lots of ice trays to make more. Trash pickup is Wednesdays and Saturdays. If you don't check out on one of those days your remaining trash will be handled by the cleaning crew at the end of your stay so there is no need to haul it out yourself!

A few steps down from the house brings you to the fire pit where you can enjoy the end of the day by watching the sun drift behind the Cross Mountains and reminisce about the day’s activities out on the water.

There is a guest house on the property just down from the fire pit. It has 2 more decks for you to enjoy some leisure time closer to the lake. The inside is being renovated so no one will be using this house during your stay.

This property features over 400 feet of lake frontage. The dock has 1 covered slip, a diving board, and 2 jet ports. There is room for 2 boats and 2 wave runners. The dock has power, a mini fridge, and lights to do that all important prep work for next day’s activities.

An unusual bonus is the good cell phone service at the house and down at the dock. It is excellent for Verizon. Sprint, AT&T and T Mobile not so good.

I know you will love this property as much as I do.

About Michael Lammers

I have always loved Norris Lake and have been coming here for over 20 year. I have been looking for a home here for the past 3 years and fell in love with this home. I had the privacy I was looking for and I wanted to have a place that faced west to enjoy the stunning sunsets. I think you will enjoy your time here as much as I have and make memories that will last a lifetime.

What makes this house unique

Guestbook comments from the owner

The pictures of this property do not do it justice. It is a well apportioned home, a million dollar view and a stunningly clear lake. I imagine some people complain about the lack of bath towels, and the need to pick up trash, etc., but Mike makes clear from the start exactly what is provided and what is not. So, this is on those who complain. The home is recently updated and provides plenty of space. We had 10 adults and 1 teenager and did not want for more room. The kitchen is large and open. We spent a lot of time on the deck overlooking the lake. Had it been cooler, we would have opened all of the sliding doors (but, we were fortunate to have most days around 90). The dock with covered slip, diving board, jet ski ports, and chairs provided a great "home base" for us during the day. The free dock to let in (Campbell County State Park) is about a 25-30 minute boat ride away from the house. And, it is about 30 minute drive with a trailer. So be prepared for this on your way to the property. Seqouyah Marina is 7-10 minutes away by boat, the Dam is about 25-30 minutes by boat, and the main part of the lake is a relaxing and winding hour trip by pontoon. We went there on two separate days - for the ride and the rope swing. All in all, Mike has a first rate property. The process is smooth -- he knows what he is doing. We appreciate so much his willingness to work with us and be there very step of the way. Thanks!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had two families meet here for almost a week and it was fantastic! The house is very well laid out for lots of munchkins and the dock has the best ladder on the lake which makes it super easy for kids to get out of the water and prepare to jump back in (thousands of times!). I would recommend this for families that have multiple kids.

The Perfect Lake House at Norris

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend at Serendipity. The location is great; the views off the deck and from the dock are beautiful. We rented a pontoon from Whitman Hollow one day and just swam from the dock the rest of the weekend. We would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a relaxing lake trip. Michael is a courteous and thoughtful owner.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend at this house. There was plenty of room for everyone. The dock was perfect for us to hang out on when we weren't out on the pontoon.

Spacious, strong amenities, great view, proximity to marinas, launches and to I75

  • 5 of 5

Mike has a great property. The pictures are true. The lakeside of the property faces west and we had 3 straight days of incredible weather with beautiful views of the water and sun through the trees from about 2pm to sundown. Plenty of private space for adults and kids. The boat slip was really nice. We brought our 24' Yamaha, dropped it in at the state park and had access to it whenever we wanted at the slip. Floats for 2 jet skis as well. Plenty of places to hang out whether at the house deck, the fire pit or the floating slip on the water. We had really good proximity to Sequoyah Marina as well for fuel when needed and they offered respectable on the water prices. Norris Lake is huge. I was appreciative of being able to see other boats and people having fun but never felt like it was busy. Hitting a cove for an afternoon on the boat with no wake to worry about (you're out of the way) allowed the kids to swim and the parents to relax. We probably touched 10% of the lake, it's very large.

Hit the grocery on the way in, bring your toys, pop a cold one. Our first time to Norris and we will be back.

Beautiful Lake Home and Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fantastic week at Serendipity! We’ve stayed at many lake homes on Norris over the past several years and this was by far our favorite. What sets this home apart from the others is that it is a home and not a typical rental property. The furnishings are comfortable and cozy and the home was incredibly clean and fresh smelling. The kitchen was outfitted with all of the essentials and there were plenty of games and DVD’s to keep us entertained when we needed a break from the lake. One of our favorite things about the property was the view. It was absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed many evenings watching the sunset. Several great covers for water skiing were just around the bend as was a fun cliff for jumping which the kids thoroughly enjoyed. There were several steps to the water but strategically placed landings really helped navigate the hill and it was very manageable, even for my 84 year old father. The boat dock offered a covered slip for our boat and we were able to tie up another boat on the side. There was a lot of room on the dock for all of our water sports gear and the owner has several chairs for renters use. We loved our stay and highly recommend it to others!

Awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a fantastic time! Pictures do not do this house justice. It's gorgeous! There was plenty of room, beds were comfortable and the place was spotless. The cove is great too. While we did venture out to the jumping bridge we spent majority of our time in the cove, the rope swing that's very close to the house, and the dock. Kids loved the diving board. We would love to have had a slide but we still had a blast. The only downfall if you want to call it that was not having wifi or phone service. Majority of us had AT&T and lacked service. I enjoyed being off the grid but would be nice to have a landline for emergencies If there was one just for peice of mind. We are planning to book this house next year and we are looking forward to another great vacation! Thanks Mike for sharing your home! :)
