  • Pictuesque house nestled in the woods.

    "Thanks to Joanne and her son, Jason, for their attentiveness during our stay. The house was very clean. It was comfortable with 3 different decks to sit on either for socializing or just being still. The master bed was very comfortable it was solid and snuggly. The bedroom was downstairs and maintained a cool comfortable temperature with out the use of AC or heat during our October stay. Smart TV, blue tooth speakers available, free WiFi, and small desk down stairs if you need to keep up with things back home---This was a nice feature which I planned on but did NOT use. This environment was very conducive to leaving "it" all behind. We brought our 2 dogs who loved exploring the hillside and rocks down by the water. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances (crock pot, blender, toaster oven) and cooking utensils (sharp knives). I always bring my own favorite knives to cook with, it seems other houses we have rented have 1 knife that is crooked and dull. We rented the pontoon boat for 4 days while we were there. Jason's hospitality was refreshing, he was personable, brought cookies to the dogs, and was very helpful while teaching my husband about Norris Lake and how to use the boat."

  • 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!"

  • 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!!"

  • Best dock on the lake!!!

    "This is our 16th year at Norris lake. Stayed at a lot of houses all over the lake, by far this is the best dock on the lake! Slide was a big hit... Covered bar that provided a lot of shade. Jumping platform and in a quiet cove."
