About ALLEN SIMPSON
Lives in Loveland Ohio
ALLEN SIMPSON purchased this House in 2000
Why ALLEN SIMPSON chose Caryville
I have made this house what I would expect in a vacation rental. People go on vacation to spend time with friends and family but also like to have their own space at times. This house is set up with a bedroom and bathroom on each floor. It also has everything you will need for entertaining. Cable TV and a great stereo system with speakers on the deck and at the boat dock.
What makes this House unique
House has a private setting with no other boat docks next to it. Located in a cove with a launch ramp minutes away. Plenty of parking for boats and jet skies. Outside bar on lower covered deck. Close to the highway no long windy roads to travel. Two miles to Twin Cove Marina

Our family of 6 adults and 2 toddlers were pleasantly welcomed to this lovely, well maintained home for our Thanksgiving week.
The home is large! Four bedrooms, with queen and 1 king beds and a set of bunks. It was perfect for our 3 families. The main floor is open, with a cathedral ceiling and a wall of windows overlooking the Norris Lake. The open floor plan allowed plenty of room for our 2 toddlers to play, chase each other and find a corner when needing some "alone" time(or time out).
The kitchen was very well equipped with every appliance you can think of, right down to a roaster (wish I hadn't brought mine). Plenty of dishes, bowls, baking pans, 3 sets of pots and pans, 2 coffee makers and a 4 slice toaster. And, with the open floor plan, 3 of us could be in the kitchen, cooking without elbowing each other. It was wonderful for our Thanksgiving dinner.
The driveway was a bit of a challenge upon our arrival, which was after dark. But, once we took a good look at it, we backed in, as recommended by the owner, without incident.
Our visit was perfect! And, I would recommend this home to any family, looking for spacious accomodations, comfortable sleeping quarters and a well equipped kitchen.
Thank you Allen for being available the entire week and responding quickly to our questions and needs. You were awesome.
If we decide to visit this area in the future, we will certainly hope this home is available.
Great Norris Lake weekend in this gorgeous home.
3 couples + 1 dog stayed for a long weekend to check out Norris Lake. The house is big and we all had separate floors. This is the cleanest rental house I have been in. It has a very well stocked kitchen. Be sure to take your condiments. There is salt, pepper and sugar, and kitchen towels. Take your own bath linens as they are not provided. The TV and Sonos sound system are fantastic. Loved the decks and fire pit. You need to be fit to use this house and dock. Lots of stairs but I got my exercise! We walked on trails in the nearby state park. The lake level is down for the season and most marina restaurants are closed but we found several open for another week. We packed a boat lunch and enjoyed perfect weather for our weekend and saw maybe a third of the lake. Beware launching a boat at Twin Cove Marina in the fall. We weren't given direction when we paid the launch fee and dropped off one side but thanks to our big truck, pulled it out ok. There is a side gravel ramp to use.
The owner was helpful and responsive to questions. The marina staff were friendly and helpful. We will be back! Thanks Allen for sharing your lovely home.
Thank you for renting my home and I’m glad you enjoyed your stay. It is unfortunate TVA drains the lakes down so early in the year September and most of October are great times to be on the lake.
Let me know when your reorient return!
Great rental. So impressed with the house, location, and entire process. Location is great, you are 10 mins from a walmart, had phone service, and the dock is in a secluded place. Allen was such great help. Very clean place, great layout of house. We had the best trip and hope to come back year after year. Thank you!
So glad you enjoyed the house and its location.
Norris Lake Vacation
We had a wonderful stay at the home we rented at Norris Lake. We were in a quiet area and close to a public dock. Great for relaxing and boating!
Really enjoyed our stay
Beautiful home and the perfect size for my family vacation with 10 adults and 2 kids.
Hard to beat
I have been a frequent flyer of this rental for several years and plan on returning next year. I really can't think of anything it needs but I am sure the owner will add something as he does every year. This rental is private ( my grandkids called it the treehouse ) and there is minimal boat traffic. Everything you need you'll find here but shopping is close by if necessary. Swimming, skiing, fishing or just relaxing...this is the place to be!! Thank you Allen once again for letting us return to your beautiful house on the lake!
