4 Bedroom, 3 Bath W/ two Large Living Area, Great Kitchen & Outdoor Grill Area
Our beautiful home is nestled on 1.5 acres of natural wooded land with spectacular views overlooking the emerald waters of Norris Lake with private dock. Situated on Lakeshore Drive in the Hickory Star area it is convenient to the town of Maynardville and the Greater Knoxville area is only 14 miles away. Neyland Stadium, home of the Tennessee Volunteers is 22 miles away.
Our home has been completely remodeled from the studs out and including all new Kitchen, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Full Bathrooms, large living area upstairs and downstairs, front and rear decks overlooking the water and outdoor grilling area. Including the sleeper sofas our home can easily sleep 8 adults and with another 2 or 3 kids (10-11 total). Includes over 3,100 SF all for your enjoyment.
There are newly built wooden steps down to the lake and a substantial covered dock with boat slip for your use. This boat dock is complete with electricity and great for night fishing right from the dock. The dock is also a great place to swim. The water is deep in this part of the lake which is great for fishing and swimming and wiith deep water the dock is accessible by boat 365 days a year. Yippiee! Best of all, the dock is all yours!
Our home makes for a great retreat for a larger family with kids, several couples, or even a small church group. You are just a short car or boat ride from Hickory Star Marina and Beach Island Marina ( Bubba Brew's- a popular hangout & marina on Norris). Pontoon Boats are all available for rent through either of the marinas and ski boats can be rented at Beach Island Marina. If you're looking for an escape in a secluded spot for the perfect vacation or getaway, this is your place!
Some of our favorite things about this property are the upper deck that is shaded until mid morning and again by mid afternoon making it excellent for that morning coffee or late afternoon wine & cheese. The front deck has a landing area with gas grill for those evening grill sessions. The downstairs den area is a perfect hangout for movie night (55” HD TV). It is also complete with a fire pit area for those cool evenings and Smore sessions. The real showstoppers are the spectacular views, the great kitchen with outside grill area and the large dock that makes for a great place to kick back and enjoy a cocktail.
For the more adventurous, a short boat ride across the lake and you have access to several rope swings and a 20 foot rock cliff for an exhilarating jump into the clear waters.
For the true fishing experience, we recommend Mel’s Striper Guide Service. Mel is a full time fishing guide with over 10 years experience guiding on Norris Lake. Mel maintains his personal 21 ft. Center Console boat equipped with the latest in fish finding technology. Morning trips up to 8 hours are based on fish catch & your preference.
Need a break from the lake for a day? A great idea for the most adventurous - there is Tubing or Rafting in the Smokies on the Pigeon River or Ziplining through the Smokies. The upper section of the Pigeon River boasts 12 Class III and 3 Class IV thrilling whitewater rapids! Accompanied by a professional river guide, you’ll be escorted down 5 miles of lively rapids with equally engaging nicknames such as Too Late, Vegamatic, Razor Blade, After Shave, and Lost Guide. No Experience Necessary! Ziplining includes over a mile of lines through the Great Smokies canopy!
Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, the gateway to the west is approximately 35 miles north with numerous hiking trails and scenic overlooks for you to enjoy as well as a museum.
We have just added four Kayaks to rent to our guests for the very low price of $100.00 per Kayak per week or $35.00 per day. This extra charge will be collected upon check-in.

To start, I very rarely give any place I stay a perfect score. But this Lake House was exactly what our family and friends needed. From the time we pulled in we felt welcome and free to do whatever we wanted in order to have a great time. I was greeted pulling onto the property with a smile and a welcome and we were given a tour of the home. Not something you get every where.
The view was amazing! The dock and the home itself is very well kept. So much so that I would buy this place in a heartbeat if I could. We could not have lucked into a better more amazing space to stay with our family and friends.
The home came with all of the odds and ends we needed from things like a crock pot all the way to games for the kids. The whole home and everything surrounding it was very clean and well kept. I loved the fact that the property owners lived right next door and if we were to need anything they were right there. But don't let this scare you either. They never once bothered us or stuck their nose in our day to day. But they were nice people and we would have welcomed them if they did.
This lake house was so nice that we never even wanted to leave. Never searched for anything else to do. We were happy just to stay there all day. Dock a boat , fish right off of your dock or jump right in and have a swim.
We will definitely be visiting this home again in the future. I absolutely cannot wait!
Amazing that lake Norris is right front of you and very pretty to kayak, absolutely recommend to go!
Pretty, clean and equipped house, great rent 4 kayaks from the owner.
Everything is perfect, so it would be difficult to find better one and importantly the best owner!
Thank you so much for your great review. We enjoyed having you and your crew and hope you'll stay with us again in the future.

Great House. Perfect location. Wonderful owners.
We had a wonderful stay at the Fish-n-Fun house. Five adults on a weekend getaway to relax and watch the NCAA March Madness. Although our teams lost, our stay was a winner. Five adults fit very comfortably in the house. Two very comfortable and well appointed common spaces. Comfy beds. Beautiful views of the lake. Bathrooms were clean, and well appointed with amenities and plenty of very nice towels. The location was quiet, and right on the lake. We were able to walk through the neighborhood (although the climb us the ridge was challenging). Joyce and Bill were wonderful. They printed out the NCAA brackets for us, the list of channels covering the games, and even gave us an NCAA welcome cake. We recommend this property and will more than likely return next year.
We had families from Indiana, North Carolina, and Florida meet at this property and we were all very impressed. The house was an open concept and we were all able to eat together and mingle. The house is well-equipped for cooking and serving meals.
During the day, we spent time at the dock, which had plenty of chairs for people to sit. The house also provided swim noodles so people could relax in the water and have conversations with people who didn't want to swim.
In the evenings, we had a campfire and s'mores. The property also had plenty of firewood for us to use.
I can't say enough about the property, as well as the assistance I had from the owners in working to get our vacation scheduled.
Fish N Fun is in the perfect location and is the perfect house for my family of 9. The view is spectacular, the outside beautifully landscaped and the house was immaculate and stocked with everything you could imagine. The open floor plan never made us feel cramped and if you want to get away - the downstairs is just as pretty and open as the upstairs - also with a spectacular view. We rented a pontoon for our stay and loved the private lighted dock to pull up to after a day on the lake. There are several steps to climb, but the stairway looks brand new and was very sturdy, with several landings on the way up. That was a plus for my 77 year-old mom. We'll definitely return to this quiet spot when we can stay the whole week! Thank you Joyce, for your gracious hospitality. : )
Fabulous home, perfect location!
We spent a wonderful week at Fish n Fun as our home base to further explore Norris Lake. The home is updated, very well taken care of and well equipped. The upper deck and lower patio had lots of seating options with room for a large family group. The dock was wonderful; we particularly appreciated the small refrigerator on the dock so that we did not have to carry a full cooler up and down the stairs each day. The area is very peaceful, views are wonderful, and Joyce was a gracious host. It was hard to leave and I suspect we'll be back!
