  • 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."

  • Excellent House & Location

    "Myself and a group of friends in our early twenties rented this house for Memorial day weekend like we had done the year before. The house was very well kept and had a very welcoming feel to it making it seem like you were at your own lake house. The small cove it is located in was very nice to swim in and is within a slightly larger cove that one can take their boat out to if they want more room while still being out of the way of boat traffic. It was a 15 min drive to Shanghai Resort for our boat rental which was an issue the year before not having a place very close to us. The wrap around deck has a great view and is very peaceful but does lead to a slope down to the dock. While not an issue for us, it could be one for very young children or someone who has difficulties with walking. The owners were very friendly and easy to work with. They were very responsive and wanted to make it as easy a process to rent from them as possible. I would recommend this house to everyone and if things work out well we may even be back next year!"

  • 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!!"

  • Tranquil and Quaint Cottage

    "The history of Wood Duck Inn is almost palpable when you walk in the 50-yr old house--from the vintage furnishings and family photographs to the stacked stone fireplace and knotty pine paneling. Like Wood Duck Inn, we have nearly 50 years of Norris Lake memories ourselves. On this trip, we fished, "bobbed" for hours with friends and family in the beautiful water near the cliff, had cookouts, and read books on the porch swing. Mill Creek cove is perfect for kayaking in the early morning or evening, when jet skiers have worn themselves out and gone home. On our last evening, we watched the Perseid Meteor Shower from our friend's dock. Beds are comfy, plenty of space for privacy, well-equipped kitchen (although the nostalgic Hamilton Beach mixer refused to cooperate!). Great communication with the owners. The home was nearly perfect for us. The ONLY reason we didn't give it 5 stars was beyond Martie and Scrog's control--thanks to TVA, the decreasing water levels on Norris Lake throughout the summer created shallow, rocky waters near the dock. Just something to consider if you have a large boat and want it within footsteps of your vacation home. You know it's a winner when you want to return and do it all over again! Thanks for sharing your treasure Martie and Scrog! Lisa and Tony"
