Bravo Blue Grotto!

  • 5 of 5

This Thanksgiving was very Special from us! Every year our family travels from different parts of the country in order to bond in a place we call home for those 5 days; the Blue Grotto was no exception.

From the point that you arrive into this gated private community, you get the sense of tranquility with all the beautiful homes nestled in the smoky mountains and Norris lake. We were in this home with 20+ adults and kids. We enjoyed every aspect of the home. We spent time playing ping pong, in the jacuzzi, admiring the lake, visiting local state park and most of all mingling with our growing family.

All in all, The Blue Grotto was an Amazingly comfortable home away from home. Thanks for the hospitality and we look forward to seeing you guys again the near future!

Great Property for Enjoying the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Blue Grotto was the perfect venue for our long weekend vacation! The house gives quite a "WOW" factor as soon as you walk in the door. The house was very clean and well cared for. The views from the house (both inside and on the decks) were awesome! You always felt like you were "at the lake" which was very cool. The boat dock and (2) slip spaces were very convenient for boating and just swimming from the dock.

The only challenges for the property was the steep driveway and the weak WI-FI signal. Both of these were manageable.

I would definitely rent this house again and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking!

Definitely Recommend To My Family & Friends!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Grotto is an amazing getaway location. This home is simply beautiful with a breathtaking view of Norris Lake. It's definitely spacious enough for 6 families and for kids to have plenty of room to entertain themselves. Five of the six 6 bedrooms were the same size and designed alike, which eliminated any arguments about selecting bedrooms :) I'm already thinking about our return trip...cannot wait. Thanks for providing us with such an awesome place to stay and enjoy our vacation.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Grotto has been a great place for 16 adults to enjoy a few days. The house is amazing and we had no issues with the house , very spacious and never crowded even when we all came together for dinner. The dock is great my pontoon boat fit nicely in the slip, the only thing we had issue with is no hand rails made some of our guest nervous. I would highly recommend this place and we are already making plans for next year. Thanks for sharing a beautiful home.

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

In the ten years that our family of 11 adults and 9 children (ages 1 - 13) have been vacationing together, this is the first property that we have declared a must for a return trip! The area is beautiful and the home had everything we needed. The master bedrooms were perfect for the couples – plenty of floor room for little ones, including big closets for pack and plays. The kids really enjoyed the "under the attic" rooms.

The kitchen was well-equipped and we used the grill a couple of times. The large decks were great for dining, visiting, and there was lots of room for the kids to play and be “contained”.

We had one issue with an air conditioner which was promptly resolved.

Everyone loved the dock. We swam often and rented a boat and jet ski. It was so convenient to have Shanghai Marina just around the bend.

Although the drive was steep, we had no trouble with any of our 5 cars coming and going.

We also enjoyed the County Park for some beach swimming and our annual softball game. The kids loved the playground too.

The only suggestion we have is a request for more dining seating. Although the house sleeps 20, there is only dining space for 12 (table for 8 and 4 bar stools). Even a couple of card table and chair sets would work fine.

I don’t know how typical our week in early August was for weather, but we found it very mild and comfortable. Warm enough to enjoy the water, but not brutally hot! Can we order that the next time we book?

Wonderful house, great location, awesome family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a beautiful home, outfitted for a large group, very clean and a spectacular view. We brought a ton of kayaks and spent our days exploring all the inlets, caves, marina's and neighbors. When we weren't kayaking we jumped, dove or flipped into the water off the wonderful floating dock. This place has everything you need for a fabulous family vacation....we comfortably had 11 adults and six grand kids with plent of room to spare. Highly recommend this great home.
