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.

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

Big house with nice amenities

Location was amazing. Close to town and Food Lion grocery store. Some steep hills in and out of the neighborhood, including launch ramp. Clean with immediate customer service via text and email.

Pretty good-good house for a large family

  • 4 of 5

Overall I would give this property a 4. The house is very big and I loved that it had 9 bedrooms. The bedroom I stayed in had a comfortable bed which was very nice! The deck on the house is awesome! The kids and adults in our group loved going off of the slide and jumping off of the deck. Between our group I bet we jumped off hundreds of times. I also loved the hot tub and two kitchens. The house is in a cove so you don't get a lot of wake and you can swim around the dock comfortably which was really nice. There are houses near the house but we weren't bothered with any noise. My complaints are that the house wasn't cleaned to standards. Some of the bathrooms weren't cleaned-dirty floors, rugs and toilets. It was clear that the cleaning crew didn't take their time. I did contact Krista the first day and she told me that the cleaning crew would come the next day to clean again but they didn't show. I contacted her when they didn't show and the lady in charge of organizing the cleaning crew said they would come the following day but I told her not to worry about it. Also the house says it has wifi which really isn't accurate. If you can get any internet it is very slow!! Don't count on being able to have internet access or get into touch with anyone except with the house phone. There is no cell service and the wifi isn't unlimited so they only get little bits which run out quickly. Like I said, even if there is some wifi it is extremely slow so it is pointless trying to use it. There is a house phone if you need to make calls but don't plan on being able to text or get on the internet. Not having internet access is fine I just wish we would have known it was going to be this way so we could plan on not doing any work and letting our other family and friends that weren't there know that they wouldn't be able to get into touch with us for the week. Overall we were happy with the house and had a great time! We made so many memories and it was a nice size for our big family. They have lots of amenities at the house that helped to keep the kids entertained. Also note if you are coming with older family members that there are a lot of stairs down to the lake. I enjoyed getting the exercise but my 90 year old grandpa struggled with them.
