Located on Norris Lake just outside Knoxville Tennessee, our special Lake House known as Interest Free Lodge is now available for lease. The home is located on the main channel of Norris Lake. Water remains all year long, and TVA owns the property directly across the lake thus there are no structures, only trees and wilderness.
We purchased the home in 2007 and fully remodeled the home, adding a huge covered deck and a play area for the kids/grandkids. The views are incredible. Fishing/swimming/boating is steps away. We would prefer to lease the Lodge for one-four weeks but we will consider a minimum of four nights as well. Experience the beauty and southern charm of living in East Tennessee even if it is for just a few days or weeks.
This property is a great getaway from the norm. You have all the amenities of home like cable TV, internet, WIFI, washer and dryer, central heating & air, a king size bed in the master bedroom, and a secluded porch off the master bedroom with a day bed, yet you are nestled in the Hills of East Tennessee overlooking the main channel of the cleanest lake in the south east. If fishing is your thing, the dock area is a great spot to drop a line. A worm or cricket as bait, you will likely end up with a blue gill, bass, shell cracker, catfish, or a wall eye as your catch. For the more serious fisherman, guides are available. The dock has a spacious sun deck and a diving platform that is very enjoyable for all ages. Trying to get in a little golf on your visit? Woodlake Golf and Country Club is a 12 minute drive from the home. Woodlake offers 18 holes of championship golf and in the evenings (Thursday-Saturday) the dinning area serves fabulous steak on a stone.
The great thing about our place is the views. Sitting on the porch having a beverage of choice is unbeatable. Did I mention that every room in the home has a view of the lake, well except the laundry room, but no one wants to be in there anyway. For the kids/grandkids, there is a play ground with a slide, two swings, and a trapeze bar, located just off the main porch area. We also have a propane gas grill for your enjoyment. Three HD TV's - one in the main room, one mounted in the master bedroom, and one in the bunk room.
You will have access to everything except one owners closet under the stairs. By everything that includes, cable HD TV, internet, washer & dryer, appliances, gas grill, swings & slide, boat dock with swim platform-diving platform-boat tie up-ladder, laundry room, household wares, and the fireplace. Sheets, towels, pillows, are supplied, also dishes, utensils, including a blender, coffee maker, and microwave. It's all yours to enjoy just like we do.
We leave our guest alone. If you need something we are a phone call away, otherwise enjoy!
If bringing your own boat, I highly recommend you do not bring the boat down the driveway. Turning around would be extremely difficult. I would recommend that you put your boat in the water at Cedar Grove Marina LOCATED AT 255 Dock Ln. Which is about a mile away. The phone number for Cedar Grove is eight six five dash (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). They RENT BOATS too. C(URL HIDDEN)
You will be responsible for trash removal since there is no trash service available at the home. There is a county operated Covenient Center located at 1901 S Broad St in New Tazewell. That's about 10 minutes away.
QUICK GOODIES. There is a Dollar General store located 6 minutes away. If you leave the House and return to highway 33, you will turn left on 33 and go approximately 1 1/2 miles and the Dollar General will be on your right. They have basic grocery items but no butcher or fresh vegetables. They have milk, eggs, bread, etc.
Interest Free Lodge sits on a half acre of property, so there are neighboring homes. The neighbors are not permanent residents, therefore they may or may not be in. I can assure you the neighbors are very pleasant. Access to the driveway is via a gravel road which gets a little dusty when it's dry. Our driveway is concrete however. Our property line goes all the way to the lake.
We expect our guest to treat our home like it's their own. A $250 dollar cleaning fee will be assessed but the home should be picked up when leaving. The trash should be bagged and the sheets and towels placed in the laundry room. Dishes need to be placed in the dishwasher and the counter should be free of debris. Plates and cups need to be picked up around the premises outside as well. If using the fireplace, fires need to be extinguished prior to leaving the home. Please use good common sense and respect our home.
