Beautiful lakefront house with full kitchen, private dock

Built in 2015, this contemporary, lake-front home was designed for family vacations and to take full advantage of the beauty of the home’s surroundings. Two private master suites are available, each with its own screened porch to enjoy a quiet morning coffee overlooking the scenic cove. The first master suite has a full bathroom with a luxury shower, while the second suite has a bathroom with a jetted tub. And for your enjoyment, all bedrooms have a flat-screen TV. 

The common areas are open with expansive views of the water and ample seating both indoors and outside. Take advantage of the over-sized, covered porch overlooking the covered dock. The family chef will also enjoy the gourmet, well-stocked kitchen and outdoor grilling areas.

Conveniently located minutes from Rt. 33 and Beach Island Marina, this vacation home sits on a private cove with deep, quiet water.  A gently sloping driveway makes it easy for you and your guests to take full advantage of ample parking and room for your RV or boat trailer. The home has an unobstructed view of the cove as it meets the scenic Clinch River.  Only the beauty of the cove and the river is visible from our large, covered deck that wraps around two sides of the home, allowing for great views of the water and surrounding natural beauty.

The covered dock will always be made available to our guests to take advantage of year-round, deep water. Enjoy our sun-deck for swimming, paddle boarding, and kayaking. The quiet water of the cove provides a safe and calm area for families to enjoy the water. We have provided full electricity to the dock with the ability to control current from the top of the stairs so you can power off the dock while your family takes advantage of the cove.

Beautiful lake house! It was perfect for our group of 6 adults and 2 infants. The outside space was impressive and we enjoyed it very much. The steps down to the fire pit and dock automatically come on when you move close to them after the sun goes down. Very very close to the marina where we were able to rent a boat for the day. We also enjoyed the kayaks provided!

After renting many vacation homes, we found the kitchen here to be stocked the best for cooking.
Deck is awesome, dock is nice, view is beautiful.
Wifi was weak

Wonderful home we had a great week on Norris Lake !
The house is beautiful modern rustic look with great views of the lake !
Great access to the dock and lake we had so much fun with our boat and swimming right in front of the house ! Great location on a protected cove just off the main lake !

We absolutely loved the wonderful views and sounds of nature all around us. Being bird watchers, it was a non-stop adventure in sounds and glimses of a variety of birds. The cabin was very nice. Only wished the dock lights would have worked but apparently have not been kept up for some time. Overall we really enjoyed our stay! Paul

Beautiful home with an amazing view, great fire pit, access to the lake, and comfortable living space! Our group of 4 enjoyed the 2 masters (comfy beds!), private screen porches, and generous living area/kitchen. Booking, check in, and check out were extremely easy. The house was extremely clean on arrival. We hope to return soon!

We enjoyed five nights here with our two boys, who fished everyday. The house was perfect for us- loved the kitchen and large living room, the wrap around porch, side patios, and especially the fire pit, where we made s'mores at night. The master shower was awesome. Washer and dryer - full size- very convenient. Kitchen contained tons of amenities. Views were stunning. Would recommend checking AC upstairs, as it was challenging to cool down. Hope to be back in warmer weather to enjoy the lake. Will definitely recommend this house!
Roger P. Oct 2021
Clean home with beautiful views of and access to the lake from private dock. Was perfect for my two children and their families along with my wife and myself.
Doug G. Aug 2021
The house and dock were beautiful. Perfect for 7.

Love the view and the location of the home!
Brad P. Jun 2021
My family enjoyed an amazing week at Ned's Norris Nook and could not be more pleased with the view and quiet cove. If you have young kids, this is where you want to be...Also super close to Marina and Bubba Brews where we had dinner 3 nights!
Turner S. May 2021
Beautiful house and superb spot on the lake. Was a little disappointed that they didn’t get done cleaning the place till well after our check in we traveled a long way and had food to store in the freezer. But overall great experience and will recommend to people.
Shelly G. Apr 2021
The home was absolutely beautiful. Everything in the house was top of the line and very clean. Kayaks and a canoe were available for our use. Great firepit with plenty of chairs around it. I would highly recommend this place!
Angelique B. Oct 2020
Wonderfully situated on the lake. Home had everything we needed to have a great relaxing getaway. Even got my workout it going up and down those many steps : )) Owners had a variety of board games and family friendly movies which we really appreciated.
Cliff B. Oct 2020
I loved everything about Ned Norris Nook! From the location to the countless amenities it all came together and felt like a home away from home.
Beth D. Sep 2020
This home is beautiful and was perfect for our family of 7. Our weather wasn’t great but we used the awesome fire pit and kayaks when we weren’t on our boat! We would definitely go back!!
Mike C. Aug 2020
We stayed here for a week with my daughter and sons families. Plenty of room for everyone. The location is perfect. We’ve stayed on Norris many times before but not on this side. It’s awesome. The drive was easy although think twice about towing a boat the last few miles...the road is narrow. The spot on the lake is great for’s like your own private cove. We spent hours on the dock. The way it is floating in relation to the sun gives plenty of sun AND shade. Ideal for kids. The ladder on the dock is great too. We loved the kayaking available and made use of them everyday. Even if you’ve never done it, the cove makes it easy paddling. The fire pit is deluxe and if it was a little cooler, would have been used every night. There are exactly 76 steps between the porch and dock. Just plan ahead for snacks and drinks and you’ll be fine. The deck is large and worked for most of our meals, sunset watching, and conversations. Really appreciated the grill was fed from the house gas worries about running out. Inside, plenty of room for everyone. Huge l-shaped sofa and two great rockers. Those that watched TV said it was great. Beds were very comfortable. Everything was clean and neat when we arrived. The kitchen was ok. Layout didn’t make for great meal prep but we made it work. Also would have liked more pots and pans...a bit limited for the size of house and size of meals required. So overall, an awesome house with an awesome view and an awesome dock. We would not hesitate to rent it again. Regarding Vacasa Rentals- I was skeptical about renting from them as I had never heard of them. They were very professional, very automated, and responsive. During our stay, a severe storm came through damaging the house and our vehicle. Once notified, they were very responsive, calling back to update us and let us know when workers were coming out. If I were in a position to rent my home, I would not hesitate to use Vacasa. They may not have a lot of initials in their name...maybe they provide better service since they use actually spell out their name :)

This place is awesome! We had two families totaling 4 adults, 4 kids. Plenty of room! Just a beautiful house and location! We brought two boats and both easily fit under the covered dock. Location to Bubba Brews made it very easy to get gas, as it is literally right around the corner. About 75 stairs to dock, not bad and much easier than other places we've stayed at Norris. We are a water sports group, so smooth water is a priority. We had it almost anytime we wanted. Heading east out of the cove proved to be pretty glassy! We wake boarded, skied, and surfed EVERYDAY! Coffee on the porch every morning was quiet and great views. I could go on and on. My only complaints are boat related. The road to get to the house is very narrow. Take your time and you will be fine. Also, steep ups and downs had my boat trailer dragging the ground. Driveway has plenty of room for trailers, but negotiating them down the driveway did not work for us, so we parked them in the yard by the road. These issues will not stop us from from coming back! To summarize, don't ask yourself if, ask when! It is fantastic!

This home couldn't be more perfectly placed to enjoy Norris Lake. We loved the quiet cove and the use of the covered boat dock. House has great amenities to make your stay perfect. Memories were made by the beautiful fire pit, use of kayaks and a fun corn hole tournament. The house itself has beautiful decor and 2 master suites to make groups of 10 like ours have plenty of room to spread out and be comfortable. We also enjoyed watching sunsets from the oversized front porch. It was hard to leave such a perfect place!
Skeen S. May 2020
Perfect location, beautiful house. Nice dock and loved the fire pit. Would stay at location again
Kelly A. May 2020
The house is nice but not as clean as I thought it would be - especially after receiving notice of extra cleaning due to COVID - 19. Additionally Vacasa did not respond to my questions sent to them during the visit.
Manager response:
We apologize for the inconveniences you experienced during your stay. We have been short-staffed due to COVID-19 and are working on getting back up to full-force. We appreciate your patience and support during this time. Thank you for staying with us!
Douglas D. May 2020
House was prefect, wouldn’t change a thing.
Marisleydy B. Apr 2020
First time staying on lake Norris. In my opinion one of the best locations to stay on. The cabin was very accommodating, clean,inviting and comfortable! I wish I was still there! The kayaks were an extra bonus! Thanks! Thoroughly enjoyed our time ! Hope to stay again soon.

This place is fantastic!!
John G. Nov 2019
This place was fantastic. We spent 4 nights there and really enjoyed the peace and quiet. The inside is very cool. I would highly recommend this place for a family outing or week away from it all. The homes layout was well planned.
Ron T. Oct 2019
They provide everything you need.

We spent countless hours searching for the right vacation home on Lake Norris and boy did we find it! Absolutely Stunning Home in a very quiet and secluded area of Lake Norris, But not too far from civilization when needed. Once you arrive, you don’t want to go explore as Ned’s Nook is so beautiful and peaceful. Highly Recommend this Residence for a couple or a much larger get together if that’s what you want. It was just my wife and I exploring Tennessee for the 1st time and enjoying our 30th Anniversary together. We are definitely returning next year!
Mary Ellen S. Jul 2019
We had a wonderful vacation in this beautiful home. The views of the water and sunsets are amazing! We will be back to stay here again!

I can't say enough good things about this property. I have been on Norris Lake for many years and Ned's Nook is located on a beautiful part of the lake in a great cove. The dock is fantastic. There's enough room to tie up any water toy imaginable and enough deck area for everyone to do whatever they want to do. The house itself is fantastic. We slept 10 comfortably and we had plenty of room to entertain guests who came for the day or just up to eat with us. The deck is terrific and was a great breakfast spot and a great place to watch some beautiful sunsets. What separates this house from others we have rented (and we have vacationed on Norris Lake for several years) is the layout of everything. The dock is close to the main channel of the lake for easy in and out. The walk to the dock from the house is easy. Inside the house, the kitchen in the house is fabulous. The open floor plan allows anyone cooking to be a part of any conversations. The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you need for food prep. The grill is great and was worked overtime. I really can't say enough good things about the house and it's set up. There are so many great details the owner has thought of to make it a great getaway. And the owner is terrific to rent from. I've been renting vacation places in many states for many years. I've never dealt with a more attentive owner who made sure we had everything we needed and immediately responded to any question I had before our arrival and during our stay. Bottom line, it was a great week with family and friends at a great place. We are looking at dates now for our return next year.
John W. May 2019
The whole house, the property, the private dock, basically coming home after this vacation is a bummer, I will for sure be returning to the NOOK. Thanks!
Krysti M. May 2019
We loved our stay. It was so peaceful and the house was just beautiful. The lake is so clear you can see the large bass swimming by. I highly recommend it if you are in the area.
Sandi D. May 2019
The home is really beautiful and spacious! Loved the deck and the veranda off the bedrooms! The beds in the two main bedrooms are the most comfortable mattress I have EVER slept on and I plan on buying one for home! We didn’t get to use the dock because it wasn’t hooked up. Someone did come to fix it but they didn’t call to let me know they were fixing it so we didn’t get to keep our rental boat and had to take it back to the marina instead of keeping it overnight. Plenty of towels were available, even beach towels which was very nice as I didn’t bring any. Hopefully they will finish the basement and put a pool table down there—that would be awesome! Norris Lake is beautiful and we even swam in it in early May! A little chilly but we got used to it! We had to go to the store to buy condiments as there was absolutely nothing in the refrigerator. Most places I’ve been to have some things there for you to use so you don’t have to buy a whole bottle of ketchup and/or mustard if you grill a hot dog or burgers. That would be nice because it’s a little drive to get to a grocery store. There’s also no lotion and I forgot mine, so we had to go back to the store for that after getting a little too much sun on the boat! It was a wonderful long weekend and we hope to come back!

There was a group of 10 of us, 6 adults and 4 children that rented this house for the Thanksgiving Holiday. The house is beautiful inside and out. They say can accommodate 10 but there is plenty of room for an air mattress or 2. The only down fall I would say would be there is only 1 bathroom upstairs and it is in one of the master bedrooms therefore if you have other families/children staying in the 3rd bedroom upstairs they will need to go down stairs to use the restroom. Unless the guest in the 2nd master doesn't mind the intrusion. There are pots/pans and very nice table settings for the Holiday Feast we had. I would recommend if you are going to cook a feast like we did, bring some extra pots. There is plenty if you are not cooking Holiday dinner. Obviously it was too cold to get in the water but I promise you we will be looking into renting in the summer months so we can enjoy that amazing lake and all of the other amenities that this gorgeous property has to offer.

Neds Nook is an absolute gem located in Dodson's Creek on Lake Norris. We stayed at this home from 6/23/18-6/30/18, and upon arrival to the home we were astounded by the view of the lake. The home itself is practically brand new, with state-of-the-art amenities and every possible feature you could want from a vacation home. This is not a vacation cottage - it's a beautiful home. My family will be returning to Neds Nook, and we recommend this home to anyone that wants to enjoy all that Norris Lake has to offer, accompanied with a beautiful vacation home.
Shawn . Jun 2018
This home is beautiful, clean and spacious. My wife and girls loved it! Very easy drive off of Rt. 33. We have been boating and renting for years all over Norris Lake and this is one of the best homes we have stayed at. The location on the lake is perfect and the proximity to Beach Island marina was great for launching our boat and getting a bite to eat.
Scott . Jun 2018
This was perfect!! It was a nice and relaxing weekend, views were awesome, House was awesome, great time I will be back!!!
Jeffery . Apr 2018
We stayed a week in this gorgeous rental. From the minute we walked in the door we were impressed. Beautiful finishes and a breathtaking view. Well stocked kitchen with everything you need to cook, bake, or grill. Games for the kids (and adults) and did I mention the view yet? WOW. We were close enough for day trips to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge without being in the chaos of all the people. It was so quiet and peaceful here, we are already planning our next trip. Such a great experience with flawless check in and out.
