About John Bertke

John Bertke lives in Dayton Ohio and enjoys visiting Norris with his friends and family. He enjoys fishing and smoking cigars. He took over management of this property in November 2016.

Why John Bertke chose Flat Hollow Marina

They say 'location' means everything. "Shady Grove" is 15 minutes from LaFollette, 10 minutes from the main road, inside a private community, nestled in trees, right on the water's edge.

What makes this cabin unique

I'm an avid fly fisher, my wife loves to golf, and my daughters never tire from wake surfing so my whole family stays happy when we visit Norris.

This house is amazing! It had all the amenities you need, up to date appliances, very clean, comfortable, large enough for our 3 families, and loved our vacation with family. The pool table was a big hit, and the air hockey table for the kids and adults. Dock was so pleasant to sit and watch the grandkids swim and the hot tub was awesome. You will love this place, we all did, hope to go back again soon!

Comfortable house for our big group. Location at the end of the cove was nice too.

  • 4 of 5

The house fit 5 families, 19 total nicely. There was plenty of space to hang out and activities to do. We went on several hikes in the area. The kids loved the hot tub and lake. It was very quiet this time of year. It would have been nice to know about the dock placement at low season (off to the side instead of a straight walk from the stairs). But it didn't deter our water activities. John was very prompt in responding to all our inquiries. One thing to note: if you're coming in late the sheets need to be put on the beds you use. We had a really great time and plan to give the summer season a try!

Great location on a gorgeous lake.

  • 5 of 5

This home is located on a quiet cove where you can switch safely without boat traffic. House is enormous, with bedrooms on different floors giving our large group plenty of personal space. We will definitely be back. The owners are responsive and friendly.

Private, Cozy & Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Shady Grove at Norris Lake was an unforgettable getaway experience for my family. The lake house is tucked away in the trees and gives your family or large group plenty of privacy while you float off the dock, relax in the hot tub or enjoy a beer on the deck. The Flat Hollow Marina is just a short walk down the road where you can find all your getaway essentials and re-stock your fridge and cooler. The scenery is breathtaking. It's paradise for the boater and the non-boater alike. Spacious, inviting and highly recommended by me!

Family Friendly Lake Front House

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our large group and lived that it was right in the lake and at the end of a cove. You could swim off the docks with no worries about boats. We didn't go fishing but this would be a good place as well.

Our group will definitely come back again. Thank you!
