Relaxing and enjoyable week at Hakuna Matata ... all worries gone!
2 families shared this home, along with our adult children, for a total of 11 adults. This pleasantly decorated and furnished home met all of our needs, and included plenty of space, all needed kitchen items, and a wonderful dock that could accommodate all of our water toys! We had never stayed on this part of Norris Lake ... and would gladly return. The owner, Nick, quickly responded to all of our inquiries during the reservation process and in the week before our arrival, and also called after our arrival at his home to confirm that all was as expected.
Beautiful, clean , great place.
The house was awesome, it fit everyone very well. The kitchen was huge which was great for hanging out with family and friends. The dock was way bigger than expected. The kayaks where a blast to be able to go out on. That was for sure a added bonus. I will be for sure booking this home again.
A wonderful house in a great location
I rented this house for the weekend for a bachelor party. The house was amazing! It was in great shape and very clean, and had everything we needed to accommodate a great weekend. The backyard and dock were beautiful; we had no problem tying and docking with a 26' boat. If you are looking for a great getaway, I will always recommend this place.
Perfect Lake House
We were displaced by the Gatlinburg fire. We immediately started our search for a comparable property. The owner was so awesome to work with. He even mase special accommodations for a babybed. We had a wonderful time at this property. Plenty of room for everyone. The kids loved playing games in the basement. We loved the big dining table on the porch we could all eat together. We may make this an annual trip. We loved it.
Foodie Family Paradise
This is the perfect place for families who enjoy cooking together. The kitchen is simply fabulous, spacious, and equipped with everything you could ever want. Everything in the house is first-rate quality. It allowed my large family to spread out for games--the sun porch is perfect. And the two TV viewing areas meant kids could watch cartoons while the grown-ups watched football. Lovely view of the lake is a bonus. Great place to stay.
