About Craig & Krista Conard

We have enjoyed Norris Lake with our family and friends for many, many years. We decided to purchase a home so that we could enjoy even more time at the lake, and more time with family. Whether we're relaxing on the dock watching the kids play, or enjoying a hard ski or tube ride, it's always a fun time at Norris.

Craig & Krista Conard purchased this house in 2013

Why Craig & Krista Conard chose Lakeside Estates

LaFollette was our choice for the easy-to-drive roads and the convenience to grocery and retail stores and marinas. We also like the private ramp that Lakeside Estates offers, and the large, quiet cove and year-round water.

What makes this house unique

The Great Escape has plenty of room for multiple families, with 9 bedrooms, 2 living rooms, 2 full kitchens, 2 dining areas, and 3 decks with plenty of seating. The kids can also enjoy the game room while the adults enjoy the hot tub. It's a short walk down to the lake - and the 2-story dock provides plenty of room with parking for 3 boats, and a top story seating area with tables and chairs. The kids will also enjoy the slide!

Our home is well maintained, in a prime area close to the jumping bridge and ski zone, with a large, private clean cove. The perfect spot for your family vacation.

Wonderful week at Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a family vacation at Great Escape for the week of 6/2/18. There were 16 of us, from 8 - 67 years old. Everyone enjoyed the stay so much. The house is very accommodating for a large group with different age groups. The three levels were wonderful for separation as needed. The house is very well equipped with everything you need to feed and accommodate a large group. We all agreed that is was our favorite vacation to date. There was so much interaction with our group as old and young enjoyed the wonderful boat dock with very roomy second level. The slide never grew old, nor did jumping from the boat dock and floating in the lake with floats. We rented kayaks from Oasis Sports, which were a big hit too. Eric was very friendly and easy to work with. The location of the house is close to Walmart and a very nice Food Lion. We had the opportunity to meet Kim, the property manager, and she was very pleasant. From start to finish, this vacation was a breeze. Krista was always readily available for any questions. Our entire group wants to book this house for next year's vacation. Can't wait to return!

It was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property a few months ahead. I was very impressed with a Kristen the owner. She was very kind and sent personal texts in regards to different things going on around our visits. She was so friendly!

Then we got to the property and it was beyond what we expected! We had the most memorable time and best vacations of a lifetime! We want to go back every year!!!!!

We also met Kim the house cleaner. She was just as sweet! We give this property a 10 star!!!!!!

Perfect for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about The Great Escape. It was great for our family of 18. The house was layed out so nicely. Everyone had their own space. The dock with the slide was wonderful for the whole family to hang out at. Perfectly located by the marina. I would recommend this house to anyone looking to have a wonderful family vacation at Lake Norris

Modern, very clean home. A great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Three separate levels allow individual and family down time. Two well stocked kitchens uncomplicate a lot of potential problems. Three trash cans outside and every other day pick up very helpful. Lovely dock, with water slide the kids loved. Steep walk down and back up, so don't be in a hurry. People we rented pontoon boat and jet skis brought them and came and got them. Very nice, professional and courteous. Early morning and late afternoon peaceful and quiet. Highly recommend this property. Nick Jordan
