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.

What makes this cabin unique

We are now renting a new 20' pontoon or a 24' pontoon which is there when you get there, no pick up or return hassle.

Paddle surf boards, kayaks, 6 X 16 ft. Lily pad, and tube for rent also at reasonable rates to our renters.


Exceptional! 5/5 -

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.

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!!

Terrific Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Pirates Cove. The house had plenty of room for our large group, and we were pleasantly surprised by how updated and modern the home was. The area of the water the house is located is peaceful and beautiful. We will certainly be back!

Great Location for Families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Pirates Cove the week of July 18 - 25. We understood the house was brand new so we were a little nervous about how finished it would be for a group of 6 families. When we arrived we could not have been more pleased with the layout, furnishings, and amenities. The pictures on VRBO do not convey how beautiful and well decorated the house really is. It sits in a large round cove with several other houses and it is a perfect spot for swimming or kayaking. We brought two ski boats and three jet skis and it is about a 10 minute ride to the skiing and tubing spots we liked best. The added attraction was we could stop every day at the jumping bridge for the kids. Our group consisted of 6 families with 24 people and the house was just fine. The only thing it could use would be one bedroom with four bunks so we could pile in the younger kids into one room. The kitchen is awesome with two dishwashers, huge fridge, and good size dining table. island is huge as well and is a great place to have breakfast or hang out. Overall we loved it and would come back again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your input for 2 bunk beds in the same room, maybe we will switch out the queen bed for a bunk in the room that already has a bunk bed. So glad you had a wonderful vacation at our cabin. Ron and Jane

Perfect family vacation! Fun, Beautiful, Clean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week with 3 other families with 8 children total, varying in ages from 5-13. Every single child said that it was the best vacation that they have ever been on. My 10 year old said ‘Mom, this is going to be hard to top.’ Pirates Cove is amazing. The house more than accommodated our group. We were in awe as we walked into a clean, spacious and beautifully decorated home. There are 2 kitchen refrigerators, 2 kitchen dishwashers, a huge pantry, plenty of room to sit and spread out. The 4 deck views are beautiful with inviting seating. The children’s favorite part of the house was the double decker deck with the slide. They all spent many hours hanging out there, fishing for blue gill right off of the dock, and floating in the water in the quiet and calm cove. We rented their very nice pontoon and had a ball with it all week pulling children in tubes. The hot tub was a perfect way to end a day overlooking the lake. I could go on and on. The week was amazing. I cannot think of a single complaint. Thank you Lammer's for letting us stay in your home! We hope to come back.
