Description of the Norris Lake vacation home rental

You will find our rates to be very competitive, if not the lowest on the lake, when you consider the size of the home and our "turn key" approach. Our weekly rates are all inclusive, they include rental, taxes, and the cleaning fee.

"Don't Stay at the Lake, Stay ON the Lake"

This house is anchored in the harbor at Cedar Grove Marina, you will need a boat to get to the house. If you do not have a boat, Cedar Grove has a nice selection of speed boats and pontoons, get your name on one early, as they sell out fast. Once there, you will have city electric and satellite TV. We can easily accomodate four boats, with with high quality cleats, mounted on each side of the house. There is still sufficient space to tie up a couple jet skis, if you are loaded with toys.

The house is fully equipped with dinner service for 14 people, pots, pans, coffee maker, microwave, LARGE ref/freezer, blender, central heat/air, Ipod compatible stereo system, w/outside deck speakers, ceiling fans in every room including the front porch. The large front porch is equipped with a gas grill and patio furniture. A 10' X 35' swim dock is attached to the front of the house, with a ladder and an 8 ft. slide, for the kids!!!!!!!! A paddle boat is also includes and is perfect for cruising around the harbor.

This house has three (3) bedrooms, and two (2) large baths, a queen size sleeper sofa in the great room, along with a double reclining sofa, large overstuffed chair and ottoman. We have a 42" TV, with DVD player and a "old school" game system for the kids. There is also a T.V. in the Master bedroom.

The dining room table seats six (6), and there is seating for six (6) more at the Kitchen counter.

We have a tendency to fill-up fast, so "book" early to guarantee the dates you want.

So come fish right out the front door, swim off the swim deck, lounge on the front porch, and have your boat setting right beside the house. You can't ask for a better vacation

We are booking up fast for the 2014 season, so contact us as soon as possible and we will save your dates, with a small deposit.

We Will See You At The Lake!!
Area Information
Nothing better than sitting on your front porch and watching the sun rise over the mountains as you plan your daily activites. There are hiking trails, ATV trails, horse back trails, golf courses nearby and naturally, any kind of water sport you can think of.

Bubba Brew's and Jimmy's Place are within a short boat ride for a nice meal and if you are into shopping, Gatlinburg is only 1 hour away.

This place is as beautiful as the pictures show and has everything you need to have a wonderful time. Mike was very easy to work with and very helpful! It was an easy drive to Gatlinburg and very easy to put our boat in and out of the water! Very comfortable home with all the amenities you could ever need!

Norris long weekend

August 12, 2014

This house is one of the nicest floating rentals on the lake. The owners were very easy to work with, and we are looking forward to going back next year. If you have never been on a floating house, you just cant understand how nice it is to step off your front porch, and be right on your boat. (or in the lake if you want to swim) We took another family that had never been to Norris, and they were very pleased as well.

We were quite pleased when we boarded the houseboat, it was clean, quite large, furnished better than I thought possible. We came prepared for a camping trip but were met more with a 4 star hotel experience. Younger members were pleased with the ice maker thought that was over the "hill". My only complaint was the fishing, didn't catch anything out on the lake and only bluegill while fishing off the houseboat. There were large fish in the lake, swimming around the light we had hanging off the boat, looked like they were giving us the finger as they swam around in the light. Would I go again on his boat YES , YES Mike and Lori Thanks for the trip hope to see you again

Owner's reply:

So sorry that you struck out on the fishing, I wish that we could control that too!

Just returned from my trip to Norris lake. The house is Just like the pictures but they don't truly show the size of the place, it's much bigger in person. Everything about the place is nice, beds were comfortable, a very nice grill on the deck, only bad part about the trip other than the fact the striper weren't biting was I only booked the place for 3 days, it will be a week next time!!!

This was a perfect spot. we had such a good time and the accommodations were perfect. Very clean and updated. The deck was a perfect spot if the weather is not so good and having your boat right there made things so easy. We will be back.

We had a wonderful time on the floating house. The house is clean, spacious, well furnished and equiped. We had 6 adults and 4 children in our group. I would recommend to anyone I know to stay at this house, but I don't want to because it will make it more difficult for me to get a reservation next year. Yes, that's right we will be going back. Thanks Owners for sharing you place.

Best Family Vacation Ever !

August 17, 2011

Spent A few days in your two bedroom floating house " Lake Shore " with 8 Crazy girls for our annual girls trip prior to my family joining me in the three bedroom for a few more days after, I was sad to see the girls leave but excited to spend time with my family and show them Norris Lake & your floating homes, that I have spoken so greatly of for the past 3 years. Shirley , I must tell you the 3 bedroom was so much more than what I expected and I'm glad that my Father -In- Law joined us to make us upsize to experience it :) My Husband, Son, Sister, Brother In Law and Nephew, Niece & Myself really had an awesome time. Me and my Sister had a early morning coffee talk out on the wonderful deck our last morning there, she was in awe of the time spent there and compared her time there to be one of the Best Vacations she has ever went on, And it brings a smile to my face knowing I shared that with her !! Thank you Shirley & Bill for letting me enjoy your Home, It was great to Finally meet you two on the Lake !!!! As long as you will have us , I think you are forever stuck with My Friends and Family staying at your Floating Homes !!!

We live 3 miles from Norris Lake, but still vacation on the lake. This is the second yr we rented from Shirley, highly recommed her!! This home was awesome, huge house with everything and more. The kids had a great time and so did we!! Loved the slide and large swim platform! Water temp was 84 degrees and water was beautiful, had a great time tubing with kids and family, had inlaws staying in the 2BR across from us, so it was fun for all and the paddle boat came in handy, used it in am for early morning pick up for coffee with sister-inlaw on porch lol, couldn't have asked for a more peaceful and relaxing time!!!!!!!!!! Thanks a bunch, Shirley and Bill

Great Vacation

September 29, 2009

We stayed a whole week. It was our first time there but it will not be our last! There were 7 of us,all adults. The bed in the master bedroom was SOOO comfy! We had some rain, but we had some good weather too. Even the rainy days weren't bad. We just sat under the covered patio and watched the rain drops hit the water. It was peaceful and relaxing. The house is beautiful! The pictures on here don't do it justice. It is very roomy and we all enjoyed it very much. The wrap around counter/bar was great! The lake is georgeous, so calm and smooth, just like glass. We even saw jellyfish! Yes, I said jellyfish. Freshwater jellyfish. It was so cool. Carolyn, at the Marina, was very accomodating and so nice. The couple staying in the 2 bedroom were so helpful and so nice...great neighbors! The house has all you need and then some! Thank you Bill and Shirley, for such a great place to enjoy being ON the water...24/7. H Miller and Gang

The floating house was very very nice inside and outside. The only negative is about the beds - the mattresses are absolutely horrible and truly need to be replaced on all but the bunk beds. The staff at Whitman's Marina were very nice, responsive and accomodating.

This was an amazing way to have a family vacation. The houses are so big you don't even realize you're on the lake! The house was beautiful, completely furnished, and had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves: Satellite TV, full kitchen, plenty of beds, 2 full bathrooms and we docked our boats right to the house! We will definitely be coming back and bringing friends & family with us.

WOW !!

March 25, 2008

This place is nicer than all the other places we have stayed. It is the first time we have stayed on a floating house, and we are looking forward to coming back in June. We already booked our reservation for this summer. We don't have a boat, so the owners rented us their 18 foot pontoon boat that is substantially cheaper than the Marinas rent their boats. The kids loved being on the water, but not as much as my husband. The owners told us they are installing a swimming/sunning platform on the front of the house, what a great idea.....Can't wait.
