About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 12 Sleeps

This 3-Bedroom, Lakefront cottage is on a protected cove of Big Creek on beautiful Norris Lake.

Outside, this property has a private floating dock. The dock includes a 10'x24' covered slip with an attached 8'x16' swim platform and 120VAC electric. The platform has a 4-step swim ladder and a patio table with umbrella and chairs. The cove is protected with absolutely NO BOAT TRAFFIC for kid-safe and worry-free swimming.

The house is close to the water and the slope is gentle. Above, the house has a covered, wrap-around deck which is equipped with a gas grill, picnic table, patio furniture, rocking chair and porch swing. Below the deck, there is a covered porch with a hammock and another porch swing for relaxing after a great day on the water!

Inside, the upstairs has a fully equipped kitchen, dining area with a table and chairs (seating for 8) and family room with a 43' flat screen TV. There are two bedrooms with an adjoining Jack-and-Jill full bathroom with double vanity and separate shower/toilet.

There are 2 flat screen TVs with Dish satellite. Internet with WiFi is also available.

Downstairs, there is a walk-out basement with one bedroom, full bathroom with laundry, rec-room and attached garage. There are 9 Ceiling Fans throughout the house for additional comfort! Total living space is 2000Sq.Ft.

All 3 bedrooms and the Rec-Room have carpeting.

NOTE: During the peak summer period from the first full week of June through the third full week of August, we only rent full weeks between Saturdays.

About Joseph Murray

My wife and I lived in Knoxville, TN for 10 years and loved spending time at Norris Lake. We now live in Northern KY so that we can be closer to our families.

Joseph Murray purchased this house in 2004

Why Joseph Murray chose La Follette

Even though we moved to OH, we wanted to continue to enjoy boating and skiing with our children and friends, so we bought this cottage to enjoy and share with others. Our property is close to our friends and it is in a wonderful area of Norris Lake.

What makes this house unique

Our property has a covered dock and is near the end of a cove, so there is no boat traffic in front of the dock and it is very safe for swimming, even for smaller children. The lot is not steep and the house is close to the water, so it is easy to walk between the house and dock. Our property is very peaceful and relaxing - it's a great family get-away!
