Great house with lots of room to spread out and a great location on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

We loved how open the house was with loads of natural light. There was plenty of room inside and out to enjoy each other as well as the lake. The kitchen is well appointed with plenty of plates, utensils, pots and pans. A few more mixing/serving bowls would be helpful but otherwise you have everything you need.

Verizon users will have a bit better reception but even it is pretty spotty. If you have AT&T there is no reception. Wifi will allow you to download emails and check social media websites as long as you are patient. This will be the case no matter where you stay as all the rentals have the same Wifi. The upside to Blue Grotto is you are right around the corner from Shanghi Marina and their Wifi is a little bit stronger.

Speaking of location Blue Grotto is perfectly placed close to the jumping bridge - about a 7 min boat ride. Or if you want to tube/ski you are just a minute or two from some wide open spaces which would allow you this away from traffic.

The driveway is steep but at some point renters will encounter hills as all the houses are built on hillsides. Blue Grotto has done a nice job with lining the driveway with trees to use as guides going up or down. We had three cars here and it was fine to maneuver in and out. More than that it will be tricky as there is not a lot of room to turn around.

All in all a great place and we hope to stay there again next year. Thanks!

Beautiful Home; Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay at Blue Grotto, and we loved it just as much as the first time! The spacious bedrooms, well-stocked kitchen, extra fridge, huge balconies, and basement rec area were a great fit for our 3 families. And the ice machine with bags for the ice was perfect for being able to easily head out on our boat each day. We were even pleasantly surprised to see someone thoroughly cleaning the hot tub the morning we were checking out. The owners have done a great job making sure everything is thought of! We'll be back next year!

Family Lake Trip

  • 5 of 5

Great location and owner clearly cares about his guests. We had a great time. Rented nice pontoon from Shanghai marina. 2nd year in a row for our family in this house. Nice dinners and coffee on the deck. Nice dock with high jumping platform. Comfortable bedrooms. Foosball and ping pong matches nightly, along with hot tub. Wifi and cell service were sporadic, but nice to get away from it all. We would recommend to our friends.

Great Family Get Away on a Beautiful and Private Lake!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Lake Norris and Blue Grotto. The house was lovely and clean and had everything we needed and more. From our first steps inside the door we were impressed. There was ample space for the five families in our party. It was so nice to have the little extras such as ice maker, Wii, ping pong, hot tub, etc. The dock and high dive were a huge hit! We spent a lot of time at the water! When we did have an issue , the owner sent someone out right away and took care of the problem. There was also plenty of seating on both main levels of the house. If I had to list a negative, it would be that the 2 upper bedrooms had to share a bathroom, however, we were all family and this didn't pose a problem for us. The neighboring house has a fountain which was very loud but luckily it turned off on our 3rd day. I would definitely stay again in this house and would recommend it!

Beautiful home! Beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is wonderful for a family getaway! The picturesque location is a gorgeously viewed through the large windows in the dining living room. All of the bedrooms are equally sized and have similar comforts. In other words, no one is going to get the short end of a stick with a worse room than everyone else. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and necessary appliances. We did bring our own kuerig though. :) The pantry/storage room is large and kitchen is modern and we'll done.

This is a great escape. Be prepared to disconnect. Reception is poor, and WiFi is slow. Head outside and enjoy the lake and view. Also, the driveway is very steep. Be cautious.

The home was clean and welcoming. We all enjoyed our vacation. Owner communication was easy and positive. And going through vrbo was a pleasant experience. I'm sure we'll visit again.
