About Ronald & Jane Lammers

We live in Ohio and find Tennessee picture perfect all year round. One of our favorite things we do is have morning coffee on the upstairs patio and admire the view. It never seems to get old looking at the mountainous landscape.

Ronald & Jane Lammers purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Ronald & Jane Lammers chose Norris Lake

This property is right next door to our other cabin, Captains Cove. The cove is quiet, no boat traffic, and the view is outstanding.

The house was beautiful and one of the most well equipped kitchen we have ever stayed in. It was nice having 2 refrigerators and dishwashers for a large family. Also it was nice to be able to rent the fun water toys!

Family reunion 2017

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay, the house was clean and very nicely kept. Couldn't believe how much cookware,dishes, crockpot etc that was available. Would recommend this place to everyone. Would like to visit Norris Lake again in the future and will definitely see if this place is available.

Family's First Summer Vacation Spent Away From the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our immediate family of 18 (9 adults & 9 grandchildren) were not sure what to expect since for over 40 years we have been spending summer vacations at "the beaches" either on the Olde Lyme/Olde Saybrook CT shore & Surf City, Topsail Island, NC. This year, however, we decided to try an "inland" fresh water location and chose the Lammer's "Pirate's Cove" on Norris Lake after looking at many other sites. Upon entry of the house, we were highly impressed with the spaciousness, cleanliness, number of bedrooms with private bathrooms and the very clever "Pirate/Seafarer" decor throughout with each bedroom having a designation such as "Captain's Stateroom," "1st Mate's Quarters," "Cook's Quarters," etc. The lake is beautiful and the house is nestled in a very calm & private cove. The 2 level dock with slide, jumping gate, pontoon boat, rope swing into the water on the opposite side of the cove & excellent fishing were "big favorites" that added to the enjoyment of all. The number of steps from house to dock & back was a big challenge, especially for grandpa, but there are "plateaus" where one can stop to catch a breath before moving on upward. All in all, we had such an outstanding & very enjoyable experience that we plan to return again next year - that is IF Jane & Ron will have us back! Thank you both for your hospitality and use of your wonderful vacation home.

Owner's Response: We would love to have you back and are so glad you had such a wonderful time. Tell Grandpa the plateaus were for us to rest and we were wondering about cup holders there???? Jane and Ron

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

House was beautiful and we enjoyed it immensely! The kids loved the floating dock with slide. House set up was perfect and met our needs. The pontoon boat was enjoyable. The lake was beautiful and loved not having through traffic.

It would have been great to have electric at dock along with water for slide . Few minor problem but they were addressed by Ron and Jane,owners. We had a wonderful family reunion and look forward to coming back.

Non-stop fun!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 31...16 kids and 15 adults had an absolute blast at Pirate's Cove! We jumped off the double-decker dock, went down the slide, swam, fished, tubed, skied, swung on a rope from a tree, ran on the lily pad float, paddled on the stand-up boards, took kayaks on adventures, made s'mores in the fire pit, watched movies, made dinner on the grill...and then did it all over again the next day, and the next get the picture. It was no doubt the most fun we've ever had on vacation! Pirate's Cove is an amazing house with everything you need. Jane was so great to work with and we have already booked it again for next year. You really need to check it out...just don't try to get our week!!
