About Jerry and Eva Herod

We are retired and spend 6 months in Florida and 6 months in Tennessee. We enjoy having guests use the facilities we have available here in Deerfield Resort on Lake Norris.

Jerry and Eva Herod purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Jerry and Eva Herod chose La Follette

We love the water, the curving roads, the beautiful landscape on the hills and have made this our retirement home for the summer months.

What makes this townhome unique

We have a great parking area for trailers, guest parking, a gentle sloping walkway to the boathouse (no steps to climb outside), ample boat parking with a lift and a wave runner ramp. The children enjoy the slide and it's stand for jumping into the water. The fire pit for S'mores and hot dogs is a great hit!

Guestbook comments from the owner

July 8 - 11, 2007 What a fabulous home complete with fabulous hospitality! Our family was truly blessed to have had the opportunity to stay in this wonderful house! And your home grown tomatoes just hit the spot! May God bless you!

August 30 - Sept. 3 2007 Thank you for letting us use your lovely lake house. It was perfect for ur families. We enjoyed jet skiing, tubing, water skiing, fishing from the dock and using your paddle boat. The boys enjoyed getting Very Muddy in your "Beach" We ventured out to different places this year and went all the way to the dam,a beautiful trip! We all left a little tanner, more relaxed and with more lovely memories of Norris Lake and Deerfield.

Sept. 5 - 9 2007 Thank you so much for having such a wonderful place for others to enjoy at Norris Lake. We had a great time and really enjoyed getting to know the two of you. We enjoyed watching the boat traffic and sighseeing at Middlesboro's Daniel Boone Museum and the beautiful sights from the Outlook over the valley in the park there as well as the Abe Lincoln Museum close to the Cumberland Gap Tunnel. Thanks for letting us enjoy your guest home!

Sept. 14 - 16 We had a blast here!! Thank you so much for letting us stay here! Your place is Very Nice! We did plenty of jet skiing, tubing, and water skiing. Played Corn Hole and some Tennis. Also played sotie Rooke and a dice game called left-right-center. We watched lots of Football, had chicken quisadillas and steaks on the grill. Tonight we are having burgers, brats and hot dogs. For breakfast we've had plenty of eggs and coffee. Some of the guys have seen a huge turtle in the lake and we also did some fishing off the dock. We've all enjoyed our stay and hope to some back!

A Week On The Lake

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week at Eva and Jerry's beautiful Norris vacation rental. Jerry and Eva are truly remarkable people. I have never felt more welcome at a vacation rental. My family had a wonderful week and the accommodations were beyond expectations. Kids really enjoyed the slide on the dock as well as the platform while swimming. The fire pit was a big bonus and Eva and Jerry even supplied the marshmellows and graham crackers for s'mores. The house is beautiful and very comfortable with wonderful views and easy access to the lake. Jerry even took us to a special place to see some eagles. This is most definitely a super vacation rental but what really makes it special are the owners, Jerry and Eva.

Wonderful accommodations and swimming area! And the sweetest owners! A must stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been coming to lake norris and specifically Deerfield for the last 8 years. This house has been by far one of our most enjoyed experiences. Eva and Jerry are wonderful people and I highly recommend renting their house. Not only was their house perfectly situated but they provide first class service. To put into context, while visiting last week I was still on crutches, they went out of their way to ensure I had ease of access to the lake and other areas by giving us the use of their golf cart for the week. In addition, the fire pit was set up daily for enjoyment and they even gave us the use of their paddle boat. The house was perfectly clean and we saw them daily and always greeted with pleasantries. You cannot ask for better owners. Of all the years I've been renting, no one has returned my deposit as fast as Eva and Jerry!. They clearly show they are invested in those whom come to stay at their house. Highly recommended this house for future rentals. What a blessed week we had. Everthing was fantastic!!!!

Souders Family

  • 5 of 5

Eva and Jerry are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. From the moment we arrived they were ready to make us welcome in every way. There were homemade cookies waiting our arrival. The lake house is very accommodating, plenty of room, and very comfortable. The amenities of Deerfield are an added bonus. The lake house dock is on the main water and close to 3 different marinas. Everything about out stay was exceptional and we'll be back again next year!!

A feel of home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The stay here was most welcomed! Upon arrival there were homemade brownies on the table and items to make s'mores with. There is a nice fire pit outside that we used with benches around it that we did indeed make s'mores. The price is very reasonable but you get a whole lot more than you pay for. All the amenities you can dream of. The owners are some of the nicest people I have ever met! God bless them both! We will be staying here again!

Great Weekend Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here for the past two years and each time it has been awesome! My friends and I get together to celebrate my birthday every August and this is the perfect place. The house is awesome with plenty of space for everything. It is clean and fully equipped. Eva and Jerry are so nice and they make sure you have everything that you could possibly need. The dock was great to hangout on during the day and the lake was perfect for swimming and or floating! I honestly can't think of one bad thing to say about this rental, we will definitely be going back!
