Great Place for family, we have 3 young sons under 7. We enjoy swimming and hiking on the property as well as kyaking, and paddle boarding. We also like to wake board and water ski.
I enjoy the climb from the lake to the home. There are deer, turkey, coons and other wildlife as well as huge trees that offer a canopy of shade in the summer. Exploring the lake is very interesting. The lake is very large and has water falls, cliffs and some really big fish! I am a pilot and fly into the Campbell County Airport which is 5 minutes from the land.
Beau King purchased this chalet in 2007
Beautiful 200 acre peninsula surrounded on three sides by Lake Norris, cool clear water with mountain views. Home with new furniture, Apple TV, WIFI/Printer. "Mule" for easy access to lake and property. FLOATING DOCK IFLOAT 24X6.
Not in a subdivision! The 200 acres has great hiking trails, lots of trees, deer seclusion and cove. Kawasaki "Mule" provided for easy access to lake and property. Great views of mountains, lake and forest. New furniture, fresh sheets and towels three story home with fireplace.
We loved the house, it was very comfortable and had a lot of amenities. We only drove the mule 2 times down to the cove because it was extremely scary and dangerous. We were disappointed because we loved the cove, it was beautiful and peaceful but the walk was a bit much. I emailed the owner a number of times to ask for instructions on how to get into the house with no relies. We assumed that the house would be open which is was not. Once we arrived and realized that we could not get in, we called and texted the number that we had, sent e-mails but got no responses. Luckily we went to a neighbor and they had a phone number and we were able to get the code. I don't know what we would have done if not for the helpful neighbor. I never received a response from the owner regarding my calls, texts and emails.
This was our 1st time at Norris. We really enjoyed the lake. The water is emerald green, clear and just beautiful! The landscape around the cove and the entire lake it really gorgeous - rock formations that you can climb and jump from, ledges that you can sit on....really pretty landscape. The house has a great floor plan - MBR on the first floor with 3 large bedrooms and a full bath upstairs. The décor was really lovely - great decorations and really nice furniture. The beds are WONDERFUL memory foam mattresses!!! The kitchen is well equipped with every small appliance you will need. The washer/dryer were awesome! Those are the positives.....we were comfortable during our stay but did have a few concerns upon arrival. The inside of the house looks like it is currently being updated - there were some spots in the walls where they had filled with drywall compound and not yet painted, baseboards that were missing, areas where the paint had not been trimmed in, the downstairs bathroom has doorways where the framing is still showing, no drywall. There is also no lock on the downstairs bathroom doors. Nothing that will keep you from having a great vacation, but we have never stayed in a place that was being updated during the rental season, so it was a bit of a surprise.
Lake access was our biggest concern, which I did express to Beau before arrival. 3 of our group were 75 and older. They were not able to get in the water from the property. We also had a 3 & 5 yr old. It was difficult getting them to the waterfront too. The owner does provide a Mule to get down to the water, but it is not an easy drive. There are many winding turns, very inclined, and once you get to the bottom, you have to park the mule, walk to the end of the path and then climb down a rocky hill to actually get to the waterfront. Carrying all of your floats and beach bags is not easy, and there was no way to get the older people to the water. They did not get to swim in the cove during our entire stay. Our children, grandchildren, my husband and I, really enjoyed the cove swimming. It is private and really beautiful. There is no actual dock structure, but a large Ifloat that the owner provides. You cannot walk/stand on it, but you can lay on it. The problem is taking it to/from the waterfront every day.....not an easy task.
All in all, for the price - this was a good deal, we would have liked a more easily accessible waterfront for the people in our group.
House was in nice quiet neighborhood. Plenty of room to spread out. We enjoyed the view from the balcony. Due to trees in the path to lake, we weren't able to get to the lake until two days before we left. However, we did rent a boat from one of the marinas and took in some beautiful scenery on the lake. We also enjoyed watching the ground hogs come out and play in the front yard. Nice place to get away from "life".
This was an excellent stay! We were the first renters (I believe) and Beau was really great to work with. There were a couple of first time issues that he quickly resolved and did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable! My 4 kids (under 6) literally cried when we had to leave "our mountain home"! Thanks for helping us make amazing memories!
We definitely enjoyed the stay. The rental house was extremely well-equipped, beyond the typical vacation rental property standard. Mac computer station, Wifi, cable TV, Netflix, modern kitchen appliances made the stay very pleasant for our family of 5. The property/lot is huge and offers privacy, great views and access to the lake. Only 10 minutes drive from the town with Walmart, restaurants - very convenient for a family.
We will be back again!
This is a great house for people looking to really get away. The location is perfect - great views of the lake and it is outside town where it's quiet and peaceful but close enough to get to town for errands. Beau was very easy to work with throughout the process. He answered emails quickly and sent additional pictures to show the house. He has made some improvements to the house recently which only makes it better. Having Netflix and Apple TV in the house made it easy to entertain the kids on the rainy day, and the lake was easily accessible the rest of the days. The access to the lake is along a trail down the hill so it is a bit difficult to reach. But once there, it's a perfectly peaceful cove for swimming and playing. Beau added a Mule to the property to make it easier to reach the lake, which is great.
