Perfect holiday getaway at the perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Property was just as per the listing except for it is much more beautiful in reality. Fully equipped house with easy access to the lake and the boat house. It was not just the location that made my family happy but the way it was maintained and kept tidy and clean with not just the basic amenities but luxuries like patio speakers and breathtaking deck views in both levels.

Completely satisfied and will be back in the future. Totally recommend it!

Happy Happy - Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

One of the best places we have been too. We have a 4 year old and she did not want to leave the place. The location can be described as "Zen". The house is well kept and attention to detail is meticulous. Dishes, linens and most important "bathrooms" were spotless. The Jacuzzi was a great plus. The view from the Jacuzzi is priceless. The house is spacious and has great amenities including my favorite ice machine. The ping pong table was a great get together spot for us. Wifi though spotty was good enough to get a few messages out, but helps disconnect from the electronic world and gets everybody to really get together without gadgets. The drive way is my favorite, felt like I was back at the sand dunes in Michigan, just kidding.. it is steep but not impossible, the trees on either side of the drive way help navigate. Marina is so close and the "Lucas" at the marina is a gem. He was polite and helpful. Kitchen was fully functional, we cooked all day everyday. Washer and dryer are there too.

Property and view were beautiful. Perfect place to gather with loved ones for an unforgettable time!

  • 5 of 5

Home comes with so many amenities! We played ping pong, foosball, cornhole (bags), rented a boat from the nearby marina, hung out in the hot tub at night, and it even has an ice maker! Drive way is a bit scary - it's steep!

Family summer get away

  • 5 of 5

The home and the surrounding community were fantastic. We all agreed that the website pictures do not do this property justice. This was our 3rd year in a row staying on Norris Lake...each stay at a different property, (All great, but none better than the Blue Grotto).
