About the property

4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom, plus bunk/rec room. Lake front at end of private cove

Location! Location! Location!

Welcome to Sunny Disposition! Our lakefront home sits on 1.5 acres at the end of a quiet cove in a highly desirable area of the lake, with three marinas (Twin Cove, Mountain Lake, and Norris Dam) just a short boat ride away. Being in a cove, the water is smooth as glass, making it the perfect location to swim and relax without worrying about boat traffic. It's like having your own 1-acre swimming pool! The TVA owns the land on the opposite side of the cove, contributing to the quietness and privacy of our home.

Sunny Disposition is a 2400 SF home with an open floor plan. Four bedrooms and a bunk room provide enough beds for 15 people, and the three full bathrooms and one half bath assure privacy for everyone. Two separate living areas provide plenty of seating for everyone.

The first floor includes a fully stocked kitchen, dining area and living room. Vaulted ceilings make the rooms airy and spacious. Four French doors open up to the deck, which includes a gazebo with lots of outdoor furniture. Also on this deck is a dining table that seats six and a gas grill.

Two master bedrooms with newly remodeled private baths are also located on the first floor. Each bedroom has a queen bed, and one of the bedrooms has a twin bed with a trundle, making it perfect for a family with small children. A half bath is also included on this floor.

Downstairs is another two bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other with a double/twin bunk bed. There is a full bath between the two bedrooms. The 400 SF bunk room has two sets of twin beds, and a fold out couch. TV, air hockey, and lots of family friendly games are available on this level. This is a great area for the kids to call their own. There is also a large deck off this area, with half being under cover in case of a rainy day. Lots of seating is also available on this deck.

The outdoor living space is perfect for the lake. We have almost 2000 SF of deck space, several of the areas being under cover. New steps and two new decks were added in 2016, making the walk to the water a breeze. One of the new decks is right at the water’s edge. Outdoor furniture and an offset umbrella make this deck a perfect place to sit in the shade and watch the kids play in the water. The steps leading to the lake are winding, wide, and beautifully lit. The private dock easily accommodates 3 boats. Two paddle boards are also provided for your enjoyment.

Amenities outside also include a covered front porch with lots of comfy furniture, a double entrance asphalt driveway with plenty of room for parking and maneuvering your vehicles, and a fire pit for use at the end of a great day on the lake.

There is a nicely maintained, free boat ramp approximately two miles by land and one mile by boat. The roads leading to Sunny Disposition are easily navigated. The trip into town to stock up with supplies is close, about 6 miles/15 minutes.

What makes this house unique

Definitely the best thing about this house is the location. We are only 15-20 minutes off the highway. The quiet cove was the main thing we were searching for at Norris. Our boat has been beaten up at other rental properties. This is such a nice area for our family to swim and hang out. We absolutely love the cove! The distance from the house to the dock is another huge benefit. This is a much shorter and easier walk than any other place we have stayed! Another great advantage to this location is the close proximity of the marinas…three within ten minutes!

Sunny Disposition was the perfect choice for a large family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We had as many as 18 family members at one point, including 7 grandkids ranging between one and 16 years of age. Everyone had a super time, and we never felt short of space. With plenty to do in the game room and all the water sports during the day, it was an excellent way to gather with family members from several states and have a nice reunion. We will definitely do this again in future years.

Fantastic week with family!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 7 days with as many as 18 occupants at one point. Still had plenty of room without feeling cramped. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for several large and varied meals. Parking was no problem even with six vehicles, boat trailer, and tandem jet ski trailer. But by far the best feature was the beautiful, quiet cove that offered so much fun and relaxation for adults and kids alike. I would highly recommend Sunny Disposition to anyone looking for an excellent family vacation venue.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house, we loved the lake, we loved the private cove, we loved it all! This was our first time visiting Norris Lake and we are already planning our return. This home is beautifully decorated. Regina really did a great job! It was well planned out and accommodated all 15 of us very comfortably. The teenagers enjoyed the bunk room downstairs. The lake was clean and beautiful. We enjoyed having our own pontoon boat, kayaks, and paddle boards right at our very own dock. Great week!

Incredible vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My children and grandchildren enjoyed staying at your property. Easy to get up and down from the dock, easy steps, wonderful kitchen and plenty of rooms. I must say that while the kids and grandchildren loved taking their boat out to tube, a few of us enjoyed staying back swimming in our own private cove. It was so relaxing g!!! Great acimodations. See you next year!!
