About Hollis Cotton

I have always loved the water. My family often talked about having a place on the lake. I bought a wooded, secluded lot and had the Cotton Cabin built on it. Many memories have been made at the cabin and on the lake. This place is so peaceful, a great place to truly 'get away' from all the melee of life!

Hollis Cotton purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Hollis Cotton chose La Follette

This lot sits on Norris Lake, arguably the cleanest lake in the region. I kept most of the trees on the lot to give it a sense of seclusion and still being in the woods, but lake views still abound here. Powder Mill Cove is not a high traffic area; thus, it is safer for children (and all lake-goers). However, the cabin rests within sight of the open channel of the lake and all the water sports and fun one can imagine.

What makes this cabin unique

Enjoy the quiet deep water cove while sipping your coffee from one of the 2 large open decks. Cast away your cares as you enjoy all the fun Norris Lake has to offer.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in this perfect home away from home. The entertainment space is perfect for a large group to all be together, there were enough beds and rooms to give privacy and comfort to all and we had everything we needed for the best weekend. The dock is perfect for jumping in the water and listening to music all day in the sunshine. Would highly recommend this home to any family or group!

Loved our stay at the Cotton Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The Cotton Cabin was so nice and worked out so well for my family. We rented the cabin for the weekend to celebrate Christmas and New Year's with my family from North Carolina. Hollis had left a Christmas tree and some ligts out on deck for us! The cabin is decorated so cute and the layout is so nice. We all had privacy but were still able to be together and not on top of each other. The kids had a blast with the air hockey table. All the adults enjoyed the pool table as well as the air hockey. With such a large family, the Cotton Cabin was perfect for us!

Wonderful Lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

We rented Cotton Cabin for a long weekend. My group of friends tries to plan a Norris Lake weekend about every other year. This cabin was the best!!! The location was ideal - close to marina and on one of the "fingers" so the boat traffic was minimal. The house was very well maintained and clean. There was plenty of parking. The only thing to note is that the master bedroom is a loft - so not very quiet when you have several people on different bedtime and wake up schedules. But, it was so nice....we can deal with that. Thank you, Cotton Cabin! We will be back!

Relaxing get away

  • 5 of 5

Great house will all amenities. Dock is perfect and the cove provides privacy from the main lake and very little boat traffic and waves. The walk to the dock is shorter than pictured. Hollis is quick to respond to all questions in booking and very professional. Would and will book again.

The Cotton Cabin is a well maintained, comfortable home with all the amenities we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Cotton Cabin for a four night stay the last weekend in June ('17). This was our first trip to Lake Norris and we had a number of questions; the owner answered each question promptly and left us with no surprises when we arrived. We took our two sons and their families with us (grandchildren ages 7, 3 & 1) and found the set-up great for us all to be together and yet separate and spacious enough to offer each family unit some privacy. Everyone in our party thought the home was great. The owners are clearly proud of their property and have outfitted it for family enjoyment. We rented watercraft from local marinas and used the dock for boating, lounging in sun, and jump off point for a swim ... the Lake is surprisingly clear ... our biggest challenges for the week were getting our three year old granddaughter to come out of the lake and convincing our seven year old grandson he may need to wait awhile to use a WaveRunner on his own. The dock is new, well designed and became the focal point of our outside time. The Cotton Cabin is a well maintained, comfortable home with all the amenities we needed. Everyone in our party spoke very highly of the home and wants to return. Thank-you Cotton family.

Great, reclusive location!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for 5 nights in mid August. This was the first time we had done a lake house as a family before, so we were trying to find something that would accommodate for such a large family.

This place was wonderful. Hollis was easy to get a hold of and we had a great stay. If you're looking for the Taj Mahal of Lake Houses, go to a resort - if you're looking for quiet and run retreat, this is DEFINITELY your place.

We were close enough to town that if we needed to get something we could within 15-20 minutes. The marinas weren't too far away.

Just be aware, just like much of Norris Lake, the roads to get to the cabin are very curvy and windy. If you can get past that, then you'll be golden. Would definitely stay at again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. One of the endearing qualities of the cabin is the sense of seclusion even as other homes are nearby and the main channel of the lake is within sight. I am thrilled your stay was an enjoyable one, and I welcome return guests!
