Charming Floating House On Norris Lake

Located in: La Follette
Our 2BD floating house, the Shanghai Lucy, is designed for relaxation in a natural, beautiful setting. It is extremely comfortable, has incredible views, and is on one the best locations on the lake.

This is a floating house accessible by boat only. Two kayaks and a paddle boat may be available for use per prior arrangement with owner, but renters must have (or rent) their own boat for access to and from the Lucy.

The Lucy was recently renovated with high speed wi-fi, central air and heat, flat screen TVs (including 52' in family room, Roku TV with Sling TV and access to Netflix, etc.), original artwork, antique tin ceilings, crown molding and detailed woodwork, washer/dryer, and comfy beds, including a very comfortable pillow-top king size in the master bedroom. (Please check out the video of the Lucy under the Video tab in the box in the top left corner of the photo on the first page.)

The 2nd bedroom has 2 double beds in bunk layout.

The sunny, full kitchen has all accessories.

The living room features a high, vaulted ceiling with antique tin ceiling, moldings and woodwork. The master bedroom also has an antique tin ceiling, moldings and woodwork as well. Both rooms have new faux hardwood floors that are warm and look great (it is difficult to put real hardwood in a floating house due to moisture). There is original artwork throughout the house.

The best part about the whole house is the picture window facing the back, which has an unobstructed view of a beautiful cove and the sunset every night. Smoky Mountain 'smoke' rises in the cove every morning and after each rain.

Your family can swim right off the front deck, day or night, which is partially covered/shaded and features a gas grill and a covered outdoor dining table for 6.

If you don't have a motor boat, various types are available for weekly or daily rental at the nearby marina. Jet skis are available as well. You just park your boat at the front porch of the Lucy and you're home.

The Lucy is located at Shanghai Resort--one of the best locations on the lake--with an outdoor/indoor, floating restaurant and bar within view and a short boat ride from the house. Situated in a quiet cove, you can literally lie in bed and look out the window at ducks on the water or families of deer or even otters on the nearby shore. The sunrise and sunset views from the house are terrific.

Norris Lake is in the Cumberland Mountains, with many state parks, hiking trails and an excellent trout stream nearby. Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Gatlinburg, and Pigeon Forge are only 1.5 hours away.

Minimal rental period is three nights. Renters must also pay $85 cleaning fee and $25 processing fee. Also, any rental including the 4th of July must be a for one week..

Environment at Shanghai: The Shanghai Harbor is a mellow, relaxing place. The residents grill out, swim, ski, boat, fish, etc. There are other floating houses nearby to the Lucy, so it is more like a community or village scattered around a harbor centered around the marina/restaurant/bar. The environment is appropriate for families or adults who want to enjoy relaxing in a beautiful environment. Loud partying or rowdiness late at night will lead to complaints from other residents, and possibly even expulsion by the owner of the marina. Thus, groups of 'spring breakers' or other groups wanting to get loud and blow off some steam late at night are fine for many places, but would not be a good fit for this environment.
