About the property

2800 Sq Ft Log Cabin In Private Cove On Big Creek Area Of Norris Lake

This spacious lakefront log home is perfect for your family get-away. The cabin sleeps 14 and features two large family rooms with plenty of space to play games, watch movies, and spend quality time together. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths and features lots of windows to view the blue-green waters of beautiful Norris Lake from almost any room in the house. The location on the water is great & on a quiet part of Norris Lake in the Big Creek Area between Whitman Hollow and Sequoyah Marinas. The Lakefront Lodge features new stainless steel appliances, fully equipped kitchen, 26 lb per day ice maker, large bedrooms, family room w/foosball, and first-level living room. Access the two-level spacious decking overlooking Norris lake through either the living room or family room. It is minutes away from Whitman Hollow, Sequoyah Marina, and Shanghai Resort. Don't worry about the security of your boat trailer at a boat launch since there is plenty of on-site parking for boat trailers and vehicles.

This 2800 square foot home sleeps 14 and has 3 levels with lots of windows:

The top has 1 master bedroom with queen bed, full sleeper sofa and full bath with jacuzzi tub.

The middle (main) has a living room, kitchen, dining room with table seating for 6 plus 2 more at the kitchen counter and 1/2 bath. The spacious living room offers a flat panel LED TV and two full size couches, recliner, and bay window for additional seating.

The lower has 2 bedrooms. One with a full bed and a set of bunk beds and the other has full over full bunk beds and a full bath between with washer and dryer. Also has a family room with LED TV and foosball table which leads out to a large deck overlooking beautiful Norris Lake. The family room has a full size sleeper sofa in the leather sectional couch.

Outside, enjoy gathering with family & friends while grilling out on the gas grill or playing corn hole. There is plenty of eating & gathering space outside on the lower deck, or enjoy eating at the upper level 'high-top' area while overlooking the water. During the day, spend time boating on the clear, glass-like water of Big Creek or just relax and have fun swimming or hanging out at the private covered dock with giant swim platform and picnic the back of a quiet deep-water cove, there's no need to worry about wake from boats cruising by at high speed. Float in the lake or take the paddle boat out for a cruise and look for many of the turtles, heron, or beavers that live in the cove. Fishing off a paddle boat is great too - it gives you access to many more spots on the water than you could fit a boat. In the evenings, enjoy eating S'mores around the campfire at the large fire pit.

Take the steps or walk the concrete path using the available pull-cart down to the new Private Wahoo dock with 26' deep covered single slip, swim platform, & gangway with rails. A giant 30' x 16' (480 sq ft) steel platform dock was added in 2017. This swim platform has multiple picnic tables and seating for relaxing and fishing in the back of the cove. All docks have composite decking so no need to worry about splinters in little feet. Please note: like many houses at Norris lake, there are steps to the water. Taking the path will only leave 20-30 steps depending on the water level.

If you have a larger group, consider renting nearby homes as well as The Lakefront Lodge.

"Tranquility Point" - also listed on VRBO (#506326) is about 400 yards away and a separate log cabin (VRBO #504754) is across the cove.

About Nick Braun

We live in Dayton, OH and have rented houses and floating houses at Norris Lake with family and friends for approximately 15 years. We purchased this cabin in 2014 and have worked hard to furnish with amenities we looked for as renters. I think you'll find the Lakefront Lodge fully furnished with everything you'll need for a great vacation. We know your family and friends will enjoy being at the Lake Front Lodge as much as we do - it's perfect for that relaxing get-away.

Why Nick Braun chose Big Creek

The Lake Front lodge is in the perfect location on Big Creek. After many years renting near Springs and Flat Hollow, we tried the Big Creek area and fell in love. Big Creek has it all...calm water for watersports, great fishing, and close enough to the large marinas for nightlife. If you're looking for relaxation, we enjoy sitting on the back porch swing looking out over the cove - it's perfect!

What makes this cabin unique

After looking at many homes for several years, we fell in love with the Lake Front Lodge due to the large kitchen and family rooms for gatherings. When vacationing in the mountains, staying in a log cabin adds to the vacation experience.

Great place to stay with a couple families!

  • 5 of 5

This place is in a great location-close to marinas, yet tucked back in a quiet cove. The cabin has pretty much anything you could want/need. The new dock is awesome! We will definitely stay again in the future!!

Great setting for a great time

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to share good times with great friends! Our entire group spent every waking moment enjoying all the outdoor living spaces. The dock was everyone's favorite and was plenty big for 2 boats and on the end of a quiet cove that was fun to swim in. The cabin was a great setting for kiddos to unwind watching movies together while the parents got their own space to relax and chat out on the decks or in the kitchen. We had an epic vacation at this cabin. Can't wait until next time.

Everything exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Nick and his family keep a well maintained and clean house. Plenty of room for 13 "late 20/early 30" year olds. Fully stocked kitchen with enough space to cook and eat a big meal, and a nice deck with tables and chairs overlooking the cove.

The cove is a "no wake" cove, so your boat doesn't get rocked all day. He had just added a brand new, very nice section to the dock.

The only downside to this (and I'm not going to hold it against the owners) is there is zero cell service unless you go up to the street by the mailbox or get out on the lake. But isn't that what vacation is for? Disconnecting from the real world.

I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: We'd love to have you back again! Since internet service is limited we're looking to invest in a cell phone signal booster to increase service significantly inside the house as well...although, you're right - sometimes the nice part about going to the lake is being able to 'disconnect'!
