About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

Lakeside house located on the cleanest lake in the TVA system, Norris Lake, LaFollette, Tennessee, in beautiful Deerfield Resort.

This house sits on a ridge with stunning views from the over-sized deck overlooking the lake. Our house has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, spacious fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer hook-up, central air.

Direct TV is our provider, a glider, several chairs, and a table outside on the deck is available for your pleasure.

You will also be able to sit around a campfire in the evening and enjoy your own fire pit.

The house is within a short walking distance of all the amenities offered within Deerfield Resort, a swimming pool, tennis courts, basketball court, and a playground for the little ones are all nearby.

An airport is also located within the resort if any pilots decide to fly into the area. Our home has one of the flattest front yards in the entire resort if anyone, or little ones, decide to play any lawn games.

There is adequate room on the drive-way to park both a vehicle and a boat if anyone desires to go boating or fishing. Norris Lake is renounced for fishing of several species, especially Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Crappie, and line busting Striped Bass.

Deerfield Cove Marina is the closest place on the lake to launch your boat, within 5 minute or less of our lake house.

Bring your boat & enjoy a 24 ft. long x 10 ft. wide boat slip located at the near-by marina.

We have the nicest slip at the marina with a straight shot both going out to the lake & coming back in from a day spent on the water.

This space also comes with an extra wide dock to allow easier loading & unloading of your supplies.

Extra fee involved with using the slip while you stay at our lake house. Our home seems to be a nesting area for the local deer, so bring your camera!

About Don McGuire

My wife and i first visited Deerfield Resort, on Norris Lake, in the summer of 2011, and fell in love with the area. We decided this was a place that we would like to spend some time, and began searching for both houses and vacant lots. Our dream was realized in the fall of 2013, when we finalized our purchase of our lake house on 11-22-2013.

Don McGuire purchased this house in 2013

Why Don McGuire chose La Follette

Our home is in great condition, both inside and out, a turn key property, at an affordable price. Both of us feel very blessed to have found such a beautiful place in a great location.

What makes this house unique

This is a great location, sitting on a ridge provides a stunning view of the lake. Within walking distance of all the amenities within the resort.

Lacks a lot

Although the post says check in is 2pm if there is another person renting prior the owner will have to check if the cleaner can get it done. For us we could check in after 4. Misleading information on post. In order to get information on what to do when you arrive you have to call the owner. He called me twice during business hours when I didn't answer he texted. I texted explaining I was not able to talk and that my spouse would call. When my spouse called there was no answer and no return call from our message. We had to call back again. When you arrive the a/c is off, the refrigerator is off, the house smells musty, the patio furniture is pushed over to one side and you have to move it over to use it. There was trash on the deck. The outside light was off and we arrived after dark. The dishes were dirty. We had to wash everyone prior to use. The closet in the master bedroom would not open. The other closets are packed with lots of items including the outside umbrella. The bed in the master is extremely hard- comfortable if you like that type. But it's not a top of the line mattress.
