About the property

Best Location on Norris Lake for Water Sports and Fishing

NEW FOR 2018

New Dock - 10x24 covered slip available to renters.

Additional Bedroom with King Bed

This spacious home located at the top of Big Creek features 5 decks totaling over 2100 square feet of outdoor living overlooking Norris Lake. Decks include comfortable furniture, a fire pit, Weber grill and outdoor shower.

The home has an open floor plan with large kitchen/family room with gas fireplace. The kitchen is well equipped for large groups. The garage has been converted to a rec room with comfortable recliners, a large screen TV, ping pong table and sliding glass doors to a deck overlooking the lake.

There are seven bedrooms, including three with king sized beds. The home sleeps 18 in real beds (no bunk beds, trundle beds, futons or sleeper sofas). All beds have comfortable bedding.

There are about 100 stairs from the deck down to a private dock with large swim platform and year round deep water. One slip is available for renters. The stairs are sturdy with railings on both sides.

Big creek is a quieter part of the lake and offers the some of the smoothest waters for skiing, wake-boarding, kayaking or taking a leisurely cruise. The area is also known for excellent fishing.

This area of the lake is less populated, offering smoother water and it is also only three miles from town for grocery shopping and restaurants. It is also an easy easy boat ride to Indian River, Whitman Hollow and Sequoyah marinas.

The Hangar is connected to the main house, so you do not have to go outside. To get from the bedrooms on the second floor of the main house to the barracks above the hangar, you have to go downstairs and back up through the stairs in the hangar.

Three hot water heaters - Never run out of hot water

Over-sized washer & dryer

2nd Refrigerator in the Hangar

Hi-speed internet and wifi

For larger groups there is the option to also rent the home next door which includes two additional bedrooms. If you need the extra space, please contact me to discuss.

The home is in a neighborhood which includes both vacation properties and full time residents. It is a fantastic place for family gatherings, fishing weekends, book club getaways and so much more. Due to the proximity of neighbors, it is not a good location for loud/late parties. We hope and expect our guest to enjoy themselves while also being considerate to the needs of our neighbors.

About Chris & Carol Oberholzer

We have been visiting Norris Lake for 15 years looking for the right property for our large family. We finally found it in Flyers Landing

Chris & Carol Oberholzer purchased this house in 2014

Why Chris & Carol Oberholzer chose Jacksboro

Big creek is our favorite area on Norris Lake. Less homes and lots of smooth water for skiing, wake-boarding and tubing.

We immediately fell in love with the open floor plan, large decks for indoor, outdoor living and plenty of sleeping room.

What makes this house unique

Large Private Dock

Large Outdoor Living Area with bar, gas fire pit and ample seating

Enclosed Outdoor Shower

Three King Beds

Six Queen Beds

Beautiful house.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and well stocked. Loved the fire pit and the huge deck. The dock had a place to pull our jet skis up. Nice to have gates at the stairs on the deck to keep little ones off the stairs. My family wants to come again.

Best Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was one of THE BEST vacations our family has EVER had! The house was clean, beautiful, spacious, and had wonderful views. The pictures are pretty but the actual place is even better! We spent most of our time on the plentiful decks all over the house. The beds are so comfortable (I have back problems and tend to long for my bed before the vacation is over but not this time). The kids AND ADULTS thoroughly enjoyed the ping pong table and corn hole set up. But one of the best features that we LOVED about this house is the Jet Ski Slip. We brought our 2 jet skis from Florida and kept them on the jet ski slip the entire week (made it so easy and fun to hop on any time of the day)! Location is great! Can be at a restaurant, grocery store or Walmart within 10-15 minutes! Also, right around the corner from the marina so we could easily fill our gas tanks on the jet skis.

The dock had plenty of fun things for water play..........kayaks, noodles, water squirting toys! Plus sitting area for fishing. The water is so clear and absolutely beautiful.

Don (the caretaker) was friendly and helpful. Chris and Carol (the home owners) were more than accommodating and very prompt in responding to any questions we had (from 6 months ago when the plans were being made to the day of our departure back home). It was a real pleasure corresponding with them.

We try to do something different every year, but I can DEFINITELY see our family returning to this home for another future vacation!

Thank you, Chris and Carol for making this one of the most memorable vacations! :)

Great Location with plenty of indoor and outdoor room for gatherings and playing games

  • 4 of 5

Flyer's Landing (FL) has large areas for gathering both indoors and out. The converted garage is a great play space with a ping pong table, TV, comfortable chairs and a top of the line washer and dryer. FL is probably the best stocked house we have ever rented from the perspective of kitchen utensils/pots and pans.

FL is also the only property we found that would sleep 16 people in actual beds. Other properties reviewed and available used sleeper sofas, futons, etc. to address sleeping accommodations.

The dock provided ample space for our group to swim and float on the lake.

On the down side inside, with one exception, the bed rooms do not have closets and have very poor storage available for clothes. The other significant issue inside the house is that one of the bed rooms on the second floor has no air supply (through the HVAC system) and no windows. This resulted in the need to run a mobile AC unit to run all night.

On the outside, if you have small children or individuals that require the use of handrails to steady themselves on stairs, be careful. The distance between the balusters is either too great or in some cases missing altogether creating a hazard for children. In addition, if the building codes in Tennessee are close to those in Ohio, the height of the railings leading to/from the lake are not close to code (or of a consistent height for that matter). This creates a problem for individuals who need the extra assistance in balancing while making the climb down to the dock or back up to the house.

Overall the house met our needs and provided a space to have fun; we would rent it again!

It was fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd year we have stayed in this home and they continue to make improvements. It is always very clean and suits our extended family wonderfully. This year the lake itself was perfect. The people at Indian River Marina are great too! Couldn't ask for a better marina to be that close too.

Amazing Family Vacation !

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Flyers Landing. Our group of 5 families had plenty of room and plenty of fun. The property was very nice, with everything we needed including a game room for the kids, a very nice dock with 3 kayaks and a skip to park our jet ski's. It's also on a part of the lake that is quiet without a lot of boat traffic, but close enough larger parts of the lake for boating. We would definitely stay here again.
