About Debbie Connett, Kathy Burger

We live in southwestern Ohio. Our 2 families are cousins and have enjoyed vacationing together for years.

Why Debbie Connett, Kathy Burger chose Lakeside Estates

After many years of lake vacationing in Kentucky and Tennessee we chose Norris Lake because of its beautiful clear waters and picturesque shoreline. We rented lakehomes for numerous years before building our own dream home providing all of our favorite amenities experienced over the years.

What makes this house unique

Our home accommodates multiple groupings. Its spacious floor plan allows several getaway or group entertainment areas. The private dock provides all day fun and easy access to your own boats. It is close to the Jumping Bridge and Sugar Hollow Dock. It provides a water paradise in the summer but is also a wonderful retreat year round. The autumn leaves are colorful, and it is a cozy gathering place for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's.

I am hesitant to tell everyone how great this property is because I want it to be available for us when we want it next year ...... Nevertheless, I will. From communicating with the owners, to leaving the property, our experience was EXCELLENT.

We took our four grown children, their spouses, and 12 grandchildren. My first surprise was the cleanliness of the place. It was decorated tastefully and even smelled sweet. The towels and sheets were plush. Since this was a Christmas gift to our family, I wanted it to be nice. The ads all say that the properties are nice, but this property is exceptional.

They also have an amazing, polite and helpful manager who was there to be sure everything was okay.

Most of our grandchildren are teenagers. They spent hours jumping off the dock, going down the slide, getting in the hot tub, playing ping pong, eating and laughing. The adults loved the well equipped kitchen, lovely bedrooms and comfty beds.

I could go on and on because our time there was so memorable and perfect. If you chose Party on the Docs, I would bet on it that you too will be pleased.

gorgeous lake front house!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Party on the Docs for a weekend get away for my husband's 30th. We absolutely LOVED it! Even though it was in March there was plenty for everyone to do including ping pong, pool, beautiful scenic walks, hot tub and about an hour away from Gatlinburg. The house was spotless when we arrived. There was plenty of kitchen utensils which was wonderful for cooking for a large group! You can tell the owners put a great deal of time and effort into the house with all of the beautiful decorations. We really enjoyed our time at this lake house and will definitely be back again! Thank you for helping make our family gathering one to remember!

Perfect for All Groups and All Seasons!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Party on the Docs for a long weekend in March. We had friends meet us from Atlanta, Kentucky, and Ohio. It was the perfect meeting place for our group – not too long of a drive for any one group. We had an amazing time while staying here. Even though it was off season, we found plenty of entertainment with the hot tub, ATV riding, hiking, eating, and simply spending quality time with people we do not get to see often. The accommodations were ideal for our large group, especially given that we had so many families with kids of varying ages. The older kids loved sleeping in the bunk room and having the pool table level to themselves to watch TV and play games. We hope to make this an annual trip. Thank you for welcoming us into your home!

Owner's Response: We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We, too, enjoy the off season at the lake. It is a different trip without the boating and marinas, but we really love the hiking and cooler weather activities. Come back anytime.

Awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property, well cared for. Owners were very responsive to emails and phone calls, and were great to work with. We had 4 couples and everyone had plenty of space, the house is very big. Plenty of bathrooms, TV's, and bedrooms. Great location, will book with these owners again if we ever make it back to Norris!

Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. This renter also gets a high rating, because the water dropped unusually early, and we had to make dock accommodations. We were able to work it out to everyone's satisfaction. Thank you.

Lots and lots of Rooms !!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Norris Lake for over 15 years now and have stayed at many places, this by far was one of the best! Nice back cove with several other houses and docks to converse too. Close to marina about 5-10 minutes by Jet Ski. The house is huge with lots of upgrades, new carpet and tile, lots of room in kitchen, plenty of decks. We highly recommend it and we will absolutely be going back next year.
