  • Great for Family Reunion

    "A very nice place for a family reunion. Well-stocked kitchen, including an electric can opener, blender, lots of pots and pans, cookie sheets, casserole dishes, large bowls, everything you need and more, even had salt and other spices. There was plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, and linens. Great location, only 9 minutes to town with Wal-Mart, Food City, Dollar Tree, and great buffet pizza at Charley’s Pizza Parlor. Located in a very quiet cove near Indian River Marina. We had a wonderful time with the paddleboats, and the pontoon boat. We enjoyed the pontoon boat every day we were there. However, the golf cart was the deal breaker, especially for the older adults. We would definitely book this home again. The owners (Marie and her husband) were very responsive, friendly, and great to deal with."

  • Rick K from Dayton

    "The house was everything we hoped for. Plenty of space, restrooms, it was very clean and updated. We enjoyed the shufflepuck game in the basement. Surround sound on every level. WIFI & House phone to keep touch with the outside world. Its in a perfect location, the dock has plenty of parking for our multiple watercraft. Very close to the Jump Bridge which was a happening spot! I would recommend the "Big Dipper" to anyone & everyone! I can't wait to come back"

  • If you enjoy being right on the lake AND having a wonderful place to stay, look no further!!

    "This was our first trip to Norris Lake. It was important for me to find that perfect blend of having a great home for our family to stay in AND and have the perfect lakefront location with outdoor amenities. If I could give the Safehouse 10 Stars, I would on all counts! Eight of us stayed here and I couldn't have asked for more perfect accommodations. THE HOUSE: The owners have utilized every bit of space in the home for the perfect vacation spot. Very, very clean and updated with simple yet tasteful furnishings. The home is roomy with 3 bedrooms (really, 4 if you count the bunk area) and 2 full baths. The main living/kitchen/dining areas are on the main level and at the back of the house with all the comforts you need; along with the beautiful view of the lake in the background!! Preparing meals was never more enjoyable with this kind of view. Off the main living area is a deck that goes across the entire back of the house. This was perfect for eating outdoors with yet that wonderful view of the lake! There is also a fire pit which was perfect for smores in the evening. THE LOCATION: The Safehouse is located on a beautiful (and deep) cove with great swimming right off their dock. A lot of time was spent here between swimming and late-night fishing. It's also across the cove from a great (and popular) jumping cliff. We rented a ski boat for a couple of days and explored Norris Lake and found the location of the Safehouse to be in a more quiet part of the lake. Most of the time we felt that we had the entire lake to ourselves. You are just about a 15-minute boat ride to Twin Coves Marina or 30 minutes to Sequoyah Marina. Both of which have good food! Believe me, you CANNOT beat this location! THE OWNERS: I have rented through VRBO several times including places in North Carolina, Florida and Hawaii. We've always had good luck with owners and properties but the Safehouse owners Julie and Eric knocked it out of the park. They were as nice as you could ask for and so easy to work with. Julie was always just an email away. She answered any questions I had with detail; whether it was great places to eat, boat rental recommendations or lake information. It was so obvious to me how much they clearly love their home and Norris Lake and were more than willing to convey that! The Safehouse more than fit our needs for the perfect Norris Lake vacation. I cannot recommend it enough and cannot wait to plan our next trip there!!"

  • Another great Yarn Patch retreat!

    "This was our second year in this beautiful home - and we were not disappointed. Short of repeating everything we said and did last year, I can only add that this year we also had perfect weather! We were able to make use of the fire pit and enjoyed a beautiful evening outdoors, long walks through the neighborhood, and several mah-jongg marathons on the dock! We're already re-booking for 2017 and can't wait!"
