Enjoyed a wonderful stay at this perfect mountain getaway, will definitely return to this gem.
Wonderful relaxing weekend! Great hot tub with powerful jets that turned our muscles to absolute jelly. The location of the bed in the apartment was extra quiet and dark. I slept until 10:30 in the morning. I haven’t done that for surely 20 years! Davy made anything we needed immediately available. It was like a wish factory! Our visit was in February, and we hope to return later in the year to further enjoy the lake and outdoor fire pit.

“Davy is very friendly. Superhost!”
“We were in town to start production on our music CD. So, we just needed a place basically to sleep and shower! The location was perfect! It was about 15 minutes from the studio! It was definitely on a mountain, so the roads were curvy with inclines & declines. That made me a little nervous, however our eight-year-old son absolutely loved it! We had to check in rather late and Davey and Angie were absolutely perfect! Very friendly, helpful and quick to respond! The room had everything we needed and then some! The area is a lake and fishing community so there’s not a lot of sit down hot meal type restaurants other than fast food. So, because we had been on the road all day and checked in a little late, Angie was gracious enough to bring our son a nice hot fresh homemade baked mac & cheese for supper! When she found out he was interested in dinosaurs & science, she brought him some books to take to the studio with him for the two days we were there! ❤️ If you’re looking for fancy and luxurious keep in mind this is a Lakehouse! So, it’s simple and quaint but it had everything you needed if you wanted to enjoy the lake for a few days! We highly recommend Davey and Angie’s place if you have kids, and want to enjoy boating, fishing etc in Lake Norris!”
“Great fish camp style lake house. It’s back in a quiet cove and really convenient to the marina for boat rentals! Two really nice cats and dogs!”
“Place was wonderful! Offered an upgrade to an apartment with no additional cost upon arrival. Extremely friendly and helpful. Quite and clean. David and his wife Angie were very helpful and knowledgeable. We will be keeping this place on our places to go. Marina where we rented a pontoon was right by the property via the water. Everyone had a wonderful time, even the kids!”
“Fantastic hosts. So inviting and accommodating. Would stay there again anytime!”

“We enjoyed this Tennessee lakefront property where we felt right at home. We were able to bring our paddle boards and take off straight from the dock, into Norris Lake. The setting is secluded, quiet, and beautiful. We enjoyed seeing deer and fireflies every evening while relaxing on the back deck, overlooking the lake. The room included cold AC, needed during our hot mid-summer trip. Set up as an efficiency apartment, the room included a queen bed, two bunk beds, sofa, outdoor and indoor dining options, refrigerator, coffee-maker, toaster oven, microwave, and stove (portable burners). This accommodated our family of four plus canine perfectly. Angie was kind to entertain our young girls with stuffed animals and books. She was also quick to respond to special requests. Davy was always prompt to respond to text messages, and provide information about the property and the area. We would stay at this location again, and would also recommend to friends wishing to vacation in the area.”

“Great people. Very accommodating and helpful with boating and local attractions. The accommodations were a little smaller than anticipated but overall very fun and relaxing place to stay. Loved the candles lit outside at night and the use of the hot tub and the fact we could all gather outside.”

“Absolutely great place to get away from the hustle and bustle. Great view of the lake and amazing pleasant sounds of nature at night. Great people that own the Airbnb and they do everything they can to make their home feel like its your own.”
You all were a joy to host. Hope you make it back this way again someday. Defiantly get with Nana when you have a chance about the SC properties. Maybe we’ll have the Highlands property in the Cullasaja Gorge ready by the next get away. Very beautiful piece of nature not too far away at all. Call on us anytime. Thanks again!

Der Aufenthalt war super. Davy und seine Frau sind super gastfreundlich und haben uns aufgrund des Wetters ohne Aufpreis ins Studio Apartment hochgestuft. Wir fühlten uns äußerst willkommen und sehr wohl. Jederzeit wieder!
Danke, dass Sie bei uns geblieben sind. Es war eine Freude, Sie beide als Gäste zu haben und wir würden Sie jederzeit wieder begrüßen!

Norris Lake Front-TN “Tiny Home” Camp, Apartments!
This place is great! Beautiful property and very accommodating hosts. We were even offered an upgrade upon arrival as Angie and Davy wanted to make sure that our stay was as comfortable as possible.
“Charismatic hosts and the Charming Cedar Apartment”
Near to Tazewell, Tennessee, and less than an hour from Knoxville, this lacustrine setting allows me to relax, walk, swim (seasonally dependent), write and visit my grandchildren, who live nearby.
This is the fifth time I have stayed with Davy and Angie and have loved every time, and every season, Summer, Fall, Christmas, and Winter. On the drive in I heard chorus frogs, signalling the coming of spring.
The king bed was very comfortable, and although the Cedar Apartment is small, we regularly have 4-6 people for meals and we easily spill out onto the large deck, for play and conversation.
As it was too cold for swimming, this time the preschoolers rode their scooters and trykes up and down the gravel path, while the adults walked.
The setting is beautiful, but the hosts’ personality gives this place an A+ rating. My age: 65+ Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend? Yes.

Davy’s place is comfortable, clean and quiet. The snow only added beauty to the surroundings mountains and lakes. Davy and Angie are extremely nice and easy going, they extended themselves by offering to do my laundry as well as inviting me to dine with them every night . I highly recommend staying here. Thank you guys for being the highlight of my stay!!
Tazewell, Tennessee – January 2018
“Lakefront Retreat is a Treat”
We absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful place on Norris Lake. Gorgeous views, quiet surroundings, wildlife and cozy and spacious accommodations! There was nothing lacking during our three-day stay. Also the amenities were all there with plenty of delicious foods and delightful beverages! Although we were travelling on business, we felt so relaxed and renewed! It’s a total experience well worth the money
Clemson, SC – Jan 21 – Jan 22
Norris Lake Front! Two Room Private apartment.
The area is located in a rural and secluded area, which is what I loved the most. It was quiet and away from everything. Although, I only arrived at night and stayed that one and only night, Dave and Angie welcomed me as if I had known them for years. They are a wonderful couple and I think you won’t regret staying with them. Their backyard is heavily spacious and they are within walking distance of a lake. It was great to be able to walk out towards it in the morning. It was relaxing. They were also quick to offer me food or coffee when I arrived, which I didn’t expect at all. If you decide to stay with them, ask them about their massaging chair! Also, if you’re into rock, cigars, or anything within that region, talk to Dave, he has a lot of stories to share! If I am in the region ever again, I will be back!
Thanks so much for staying with us. It was as if we knew you instantly upon arrival. You all caught the lake in the off season at it’s lowest point just thawing from a 2 inch freeze. You have to come back when the water meets the grass and it is warm enough to enjoy the outdoors more. It was great meeting you and hope to again soon. We’ll take us some music on a boat ride to one of the places above or below us for some live music and fun.

Norris Lake Front! 2 Private Rooms. 28 Mi 2 Knox!
This is a homey place, comfortable and surrounded by nature. Davy’s communication and attention to details began before our arrival. In frigid, snowy winter, he made sure all our needs were met, parking was perfect. He and Angie introduced us to the two cats and two gentle giant Great Pyrenese dogs. Our hosts treated us as family, and the hospitality included wine, fruit, snacks, plenty of coffee and tea. We loved the cedar apartment, hand hewn by Davy himself. The king bed was so comfortable, and the kitchenette had everything we needed. Bring your swimsuit for the big hot tub on the upper deck, or grill out if you like. A lakeplace with love, we recommend Davy’s
“Quiet and peaceful..”
Angie and Dave were the best host. Everything we needed was there. Looking forward to going back. Nice to have room for all of your family while having a place for your own quiet time. Looking forward to going back as we felt like family before we left. It’s a short drive to Knoxville, but we just enjoyed our time together and with Davy and Angie.
Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend? Yes.
Cincinnati, OH – December 2017
Norris Lake Front! 2 Apts + Tiny Home. 28 Mi- 2 Knox!
We had our post-Christmas Family Gathering at Davey and Angie’s Lake Norris Paradise. Our family enjoyed the Tiny Cedar Apartment, where we had “post-Christmas” Dinner and much family cheer. We read stories, made gingerbread cookies, and played games with our children and grandchildren. The kitchen was well equipped. We loved walked along the lake with the dogs and enjoyed the views. For much of our stay the temperatures were below freezing, but the Cedar Apartment was toasty. Of course much of the warmth is provided by the personalities hard work of Davy and Angie. They are both generous, kind and accommodating people. The king bed was as comfortable as it is big. There was even space for a small Christmas tree on the covered porch completed by a toy train set. This is a perfect place for visiting with our extended family (which now includes Davy and Angie).
Cincinnati, OH – December 2017
We extended our stay one more day with Davy & Angie which allowed us to visit with our family on New Year’s Eve Day. The Puffy Great Pyrenees dogs and the cats, provided everyone with entertainment as they frolicked in the cold.
“Truly a lakefront paradise”
Our stay at this property was better than we could have ever imagined! The scenery itself was magnificent. This location provided an amazingly aesthetic backdrop for our family getaway. The hosts, Davy & Angie, made us feel as though we were at home. They were so hospitable that it felt more like reuniting with family than meeting the property owners. We will never forget the memories that we made during our time with them! We have already made plans to return and look forward to many, many more vacations here!
Virginia Beach, VA – October 2017
Davy’s place was very nice, secluded and just what we were looking for to relax.
Ashville,OH – October 2017
Davy’s place is perfect! We came when the lake was low but we were amble to dock our boat ( only because Davy pushed it out further for us). The tiny home sleeps two comfortably but a bunk is there and three could fit too. Davy is a great host. He allowed for quiet time for us and also came down and enjoyed a fire with us. He is very knowledgeable in all the local attractions. There is an outhouse with a portable semi-flushing toilet, a solar shower and enough fire wood to burn for weeks. Davy has two dogs and two cats they are all sweeties. I highly recommend Davy’s place for a quiet time on the lake. We are bringing our family back next summer !
Cincinnati, OH – October 2017
I spent 3 days in Davy’s “Tiny Glamper” enjoying Lake Norris and visiting family. Both beds in the “Glamper” were comfortable and I slept well and dry even the night it rained. Because I love to camp, I brought a small camp stove with me and cooked breakfast outside, near the lake. Davy also has camping equipment available. On Saturday I visited the Knoxville Zoo (about one hour’s drive) with my grandchildren to admire the delightful red Pandas, the lanky baby giraffe, the stately elephants, the very senior white Rhinos, and strutting camels. This is my second time staying with Angie and Davy and I very much recommend their stimulating company and their place on Lake Norris. I will certainly visit them again.
Idaho Falls, ID – September 2017
Great place to stay for an overnight in a cozy tiny house by the lake. Great hosts.
Shelbyville, IN –September 2017
Had a great time, host were, wonderful. Very accommodating. The beds, were great, like sleeping on a cloud. They let us stay later, then check-out, we borrowed a skillet, they brought us robes, for when we got out of hot tub, great place to stay, if your going on water, would be better during season, water level low now.
Brandon, FL – September 2017
Very nice. Beautiful scenery on the lake in the hills. Davy and wife was there to help and host with everything we needed plus. It was like camping with all of the essentials. Thanks , we will come again.
Louisville, KY – September, 2017
Very kind, social and enjoy people. This how I describe them. Thank you we had nice time.
Arlington, MA – August 2017
Great, quiet spot on the water. Dogs to pet, a canoe to paddle, and a nice spot to relax.
Bethel Park, PA – August 2017
Me and a few other friends (13 of us in total– a big group!) came to stay at Davy and Angie’s lakehouse the night before the eclipse. Davy was great– very communicative and funny, and was very upfront about the construction that was still being done on the house which was very helpful. The place was perfect for us– tons of options for sleeping (the king bed was one of the comfiest beds I’ve ever slept on) and tons of amenities– massage chairs, hot tubs, a canoe to take out onto the lake (very beautiful ride if you like canoeing!). Davy even offered to take us out for a boat ride and Angie was so sweet, baking muffins and cupcakes for us (it was my birthday weekend 🙂 ). Also, they have the cutest dogs and cats ever (Luna loves to be pet for hours). It was such a beautiful place filled with character, perfect for large group get-togethers!
From Gastonia, NC
Fantastic spot for family vacations.
Spring Hill, FL
Beautiful Lake View! Nice Whimsical and Bright decor, large new jacuzzi, nice and secluded on lake front property!
Davy’s place provided me the perfect place to kayak and swim on Norris Lake with my family. We loved paddling by the quiet houseboats at Straight Creek Marina, and exploring the coves and bays. The lake was quiet and even on Sunday afternoon there was very little boat traffic. The “Tiny Apartment” was cozy and well supplied. The comfortable king size bed allowed me to catch up on my sleep, and be refreshed in the morning. Davy and Angie were warm, enthusiastic, and accommodating hosts, who very much enjoy their place on the lake. The two great Pyrenees were sweet and became friends with my two grandchildren. The cats provided entertainment by stalking, but not catching, the quick lizards and small toads. I loved the covered deck, where we ate our meals on the ice cream style table and did quiet activities such as, water color painting, bubbles, origami, and block building. Angie made available some plastic wildlife animals that were great for sorting and counting. The weather was practically perfect. The one rainy day was an opportunity to visit Knoxville, about one hour away. The large sun deck was a good place to read and dance to music. I only saw ONE mosquito; perhaps the lake breezes kept them at bay. My family and I truly enjoyed our stay and plan to stay with Davy and Angie again. The property and lake setting provide opportunities for relaxation and water sports, but the true jewels of the lake are Davy and Angie. I feel fortunate to have met such kindred spirits and count them as friends.
New York, NY
Davy and Angie are great hosts. They got wind that I love to eat tomatoes and they kept me full with some great ones. Recommend their place to anyone looking for a nice place on the lake to relax. Wish I had brought my boat up as they have a private dock too.
