Why Melanie Nance chose Big Creek

We built our first vacation home just a few doors away from this after enjoying a most memorable getaway in 2004. Since then, we've come to love the way you can slip away for a long weekend or make it a couple week stay on the lake -- without ever having to go thru the crazy long drive or packing necessary for a beach vacation from the Midwest. Norris Lake's unspoiled natural beauty, as the cleanest of the TVA lakes in all of Tennessee, its sparkling aqua-blue-green water reminiscent of the teal blue color of the Caribbean, and family-orientation has kept us coming back ever since. Flat Hollow is a favorite marina on the lake, and we love running into friends from 'back home' and making new friends with every trip.

What makes this cabin unique

This area in particular offers all the best of a nature-driven getaway without feeling totally disconnected. The convenience of the marinas, the short drive availability of whatever's needed or forgotten back to town, the wooded homesite and convenient dock and swim deck on the water, plus the loads of options for things to do inside or out make it a new experience with every visit.

I hope you and your family or group will enjoy making memories here as well, and we appreciate your considering a stay with us!

Great House, no help once checked in

  • 4 of 5

Location was great! House was beautiful. The A/C on the 3rd floor never worked, it was 86 degrees all week, had to go out and buy fans so people could sleep. I called twice with no result other then they will tell the owner. Called to have trash pick up mid week and was never picked up so by the end of the week we had many bags of trash. Cleaning crew must not move furniture b/c we found clothes and socks behind beds that were left there before us. These all are more issues with getting help while we were down there. The house was great, location was great, loved the cove!!!

Would not recommend

  • 1 of 5

The house was furnished something like a fraternity house. The kitchen was poorly equipped. You would need to sleep three to a bed to accommodate 16 people . There were some new reg size bedspreads but they were on Queen beds and you could see the mattress. The most important problem, the upstairs air conditioning did not work-never got less than 82° on a good night much higher than that during the day.

Quite and Peacefull

  • 4 of 5

Great house to stay at if you going to Norris. Overall the house was great, the location was nice because you are not in a busy area. Nice not having any steps to get to the lake. Driveway was a little steep but that is expected. No cell service at the house or area but we didn't need it.

Family reunion weekend on the lake...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property in late August. The house is very nice and everything is new, so that is a big plus. The five bedrooms are all a good size. We thought the downstairs units would have been more comfortable with the same wood floors that is through the rest of the house. The extra refrigerator downstairs was nice for keeping the drinks cold and extra ice in the freezer. The separate AC unit for the upstairs bedrooms was also a pleasant surprise.

The lake was down, so unfortunately there was no way you could easily access the dock. Also getting to the dock was a lot trickier than we anticipated, as the terrain is a little difficult to negotiate. The lack of parking available at the house could be an issue for larger parties.

All in all we enjoyed our stay very much.

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing to host our family. We rented this house last minute running away from hurricane Irma in Florida. The owners responded so quickly, the house was very spacious and had amazing view by the lake where the kids were able to explore and interact with nature. Definetly recommend it!
