About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Sleeps 12, w/Hottub

The Boathouse is a beautiful lake front home located in the Deerfield Resort, situated in a nice peaceful cove, right on the lake. It is surrounded by beautiful woods and features a picturesque view of the lake. The house is decorated in a nautical theme that is great for family getaways.

The main floor is very open, with many windows to bring in the great views. This floor includes the main living area,kitchen, dining area, master bedroom/bath, an additional half bath and covered deck area.

On the lower level there are three bedrooms w/baths, a laundry room, a game area with ping-pong table, bumper pool table, as well as an additional TV area.

All 4 bedrooms are furnished with king size beds and have their own bathrooms. Two of the couches (one on each level) are pull out queen size beds to sleep additional people.

The two covered decks are a great place to enjoy the day. From the lower level of the house, you can walk out to the bottom deck, where there is a hot-tub to relax in after a long day on the lake or the golf course.

There are stairs/ramp down to the boat dock, which has two covered slips, as well as an uncovered swimming platform off to one side.

The Boathouse is a wonderful home that will make your visit to Norris Lake a memorable one.

NOTE - During the Peak Summer season we only offer weekly rentals, Saturday - Saturday. Please view the "Rate" section for additional information.

Excellent location and hospitality!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we had a wonderful time at the Boathouse and may consider coming back in the future. Our review below is based on our stay early in summer season. Based on how much work the Owners invested to promote great hospitality, I'm sure some of our critiques are already scheduled to be addressed as the season goes on.

Lots of pros:

Great location at the end of a cove off main channel across from Sugar Hollow in Deerfield area. Dock on lake is fantastic for boat, hanging out, or fishing. House has plenty of room upstairs with a huge open kitchen that is well stocked. Hot tub was fantastic. Love having baths with all bedrooms! Owners did an excellent job labelling things around the house to make it easy for operation and usability.

Cons: All but one of the beds are pretty firm (we prefer softer mattresses). Downstairs doesn't have much common area with 3 beds down there. Only 2 TV's in common areas and one in basement is pretty small; would have been nice to have a couple in bedrooms. Sofas are all pretty old and unsupportive. House and deck could use a good pressure washing. Yard was in pretty rough shape and dock bridge wasn't aligned with steps when we were there making it tough/awkward to make it onto the dock.

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

Nothing over the top, but it has a very homey feel to it. The beds are huge and very comfortable, having a full bathroom in each room is very convenient. The common area is great for family activities and playing games in the evening. the sidewalk down to the dock is a little steep but its nothing to difficult. Overall i was extremely satisfied and so was the other family that stayed with us, i would highly recommend staying at the boathouse if you want to have a great time at Lake Norris.
