Lakefront cottage with kitchen and balcony
The Lakeside Lookout is an efficiency cottage on Norris Lake that gives you stunning views from its kitchen and deck. Entering the Lookout, you step onto new slate flooring and into the main living area. It has an overstuffed leather sofa, rocking chair, a 50" HDTV, and a DVD player. A king-sized bed, dresser, and closet are at the end of the spacious main room. A ladder takes you up to the loft to a queen bed and a bird's-eye view of the room below. Outside, a short walk down the paved sidewalk takes you to your own private dock and swimming platform.

The Lookout has a completely furnished kitchen with a full-sized dishwasher, side-by-side refrigerator, stove, microwave, sink, drawers, cabinets, pantry, and a table for four. It also has a full bathroom with a toilet, sink, and tub/shower. Its deck sports a charcoal grill, a prep table, a new dining table, and four new chairs.

The Lookout has a sleeping capacity of four and is a perfect rental partner with the Lakeside Lodge, the big lodge on the same property, VRBO Property No. 1692559. Together with the Lodge's sleeping capacity of twenty, the Lookout can extend the sleeping capacity of your group to 24 people.

OTHER AMENITIES: Easy parking with a big parking lot for your vehicle and boat trailer. The Lookout provides pots and pans, cooking, serving, and eating utensils, a hair dryer, hangers, a telephone land line, linens for each bed, a fire detector, and a fire extinguisher.

The Lodge is part of Deerfield Resort, an exclusive, secluded area nestled between the Cumberland Mountains and the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.

Family Christmas
Cute little cabin. We were part of a larger group staying in the main house. Spent most of our time at the lodge. Very comfortable and clean rooms.
Stayed 3 nights in Dec 2021

4/5 Good

Simple and Cozy
We are definitely coming back for another visit. The lake is perfect but the water was super low, which is out of anyones control. Everything we needed was available. There was a minor hiccup in a representation of the property but when addressed, via email, there was a quick response, resolve and offer of inconvenience reimbursement. There is also a slight upgrade, as the photos show the Lookout is carpeted, but now has nice flooring, which I absolutely loved !! I would just recommend getting everything you need before you get to the cabin. The closest supermarket is around 30 minutes away. There is a very convenient Deli just outside the community entrance that offers the little things you may need. We are so happy with the stay, I am ready for our summer trip and taking the kayaks out !

Comfortable getaway with a nice view
The few days my wife and I spent at the lookout we're perfect. It's a comfortable space with all the essentials (plenty of cooking equipment and amenities) and a great view down over the Lake Norris river extensions. Communication with the property owner was excellent and reassuring. Would love to visit again!

Peacefully away from daily grind

5/5 Excellent

Great place for couples!
We enjoyed our stay very much. The place was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed including a dock. We were able to rent a boat and have it delivered right to the property. The owners called the check on us and make sure we had everything we needed. A few things to be aware of: - no bathrooms towels or washcloths are included - you have to bring your own and there’s no way to wash them so if you’re staying long, this could be an issue - the walk to the lake/dock is VERY steep. We are in our early 40’s and physically fit. We were able to do it but were completely out of breath when we got to the top and taking a large cooler was a challenge - the dock is not attached to the steps - there’s a significant gap of lake in between. We had to pull the dock closer with the ropes and then leap onto it. Some people may not be able to do this. Having said all that, we would definitely stay again and think it’s a great place. But, people age 60+ or overweight may struggle if using the dock or walking to the lake.
