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.

Great home with great management

  • 5 of 5

From booking to stay, this was a great experience. The response rate was always quick with any inquiries or questions. We stayed over a holiday, and even on the holiday when we had a need in the home, the management was responsive and even sent someone over that day. The home had plenty of sleeping space for lots of people. Trundle beds were really helpful. The view from the home is amazing. The fire pit provides another gathering area. Overall, this was a fabulous place to stay!

Room for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome home that was well appointed for larger groups. Works well having 2 refrigerators in the kitchen and an extra one on the lower level. Also nice that everyone gets their own private bathroom. Nice place situated in a perfect quite cove. We will definitely come back to this place if we get a large group!

Fantastic Summer Vacation Week

  • 5 of 5

Similar to other reviews, our family from NJ and S Florida decided to change our tradition of renting a house on Garden City Beach in SC every year to vacationing at Pirate's Cove on Norris Lake.

Pirate's Cove was the perfect house for our family of 11 Adults and 6 children from 1 yo to 7 yo. There was plenty of space on all floors. The bedrooms have plenty of space. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed to make dinner every night. The house was clean and welcoming.

The kids and adults enjoyed spending several days anchored by the jumping bridge on the pontoon boat. The location was perfect for this since the bridge was close-by, but we did not have to worry about boat traffic when we were floating and swimming in the lake. Near the dock all the kids aged 3-7 (and the adults) enjoyed jumping off the top floor of the dock and going down the slide. The only suggestions I would make would be to run electric to the dock to make it easier to inflate large rafts and plug a speaker into. Also, the slide could use running water, as it seemed the other houses around us had. We improvised and used a water squirter to soak the slide. There was also a tarzan rope a short swim across the cove that was fun for the adults (acting like kids). The water in the cove was clear and clean for the first 5 days of our stay, however the last two days it seemed as though vegetation debris

and some trash lingered in the cove perhaps from inconsiderate neighbors or boaters. Could also have been from a storm the night before?

Communication with Jane prior to our arrival was great and Janice answered all of our questions and quickly sent people out to fix one of the steps that came loose on the walk to the dock and to clean the hot tub after it got cloudy from so much use.

Gatlinburg was just less than two hour drive and was a nice change of pace for a day for the family. The Shanghai marina and the Sugar Hollow? marina and restaurant were both nice to stop and have a drink and food on the water. Walmart was only a 15-20 minute drive, and I highly recommend Hollingsworth Meat Market which was 10 minutes away (Butcher was helpful and friendly and had everything we needed).

Overall we loved our stay here and would recommend Pirate's Cove to anyone looking for a great place to have a family vacation.

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you for your review. We are looking into electric to the dock for next year. We encourage comments on how our cabin is upon arrival and our amenities. Janice has been with us for a year now. We have been very happy with her performance but it is good to hear comments about her from our guest perspective. We do pass these well deserved compliments on to her and her crew. Thank You. Ron and Jane

Great house, great lake, great time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from July 22 thru July 29, 2017. When we arrived we found the hot water heater for half the house and the hot tub not working however the owners had it fixed the next morning. The house is huge, beautifully furnished, and the views from the porches were gorgeous. We rented the 70HP pontoon, used it every day, not very fast but it could pull 1 kid on a tube, otherwise very enjoyable. Water toys, kayaks, slide, jumping off the deck, added to the enjoyment. Cell phone reception on the lake was bad but the house phone and Wi-Fi were good. The gravel road the house was on was a little difficult to find the first time, weeds could be cut back and signage improved, but after the first time there was no problem finding the house. I probably lost a few pounds going up the stairs from the dock to the top level of the house but this was probably a good thing., The owners Ron and Jane were great to work with. Would we do this again ... in a heart beat.

Cabin sits on Norris Lake waterfront. Walk out your cabin to double decker dock with upper deck slide and jumping gate. Situated in a cove so there is no boat traffic and no wake. About 3 minutes from the jumping bridge and 10 minutes from Sugar Hollow Marina.
