Onawim (on a whim!) is a beautiful rental cabin just 10 min. off I75. The closest marinas via water are Indian River Marina and Whitman Hollow Marina. The cabin lies right across from mile marker 8.
This cozy cottage, nestled amongst dogwood and pine trees is on a private dead-end lane and perches very close to the water. Steps and walkways make for EASY access to Norris Lake. The 2 decks offer bountiful views of the lake and surrounding grounds. One of the decks has a gas grill. The other deck is covered, so you can enjoy it even in inclement weather. You will enjoy the lakeside lower deck which offers relaxing deck chairs and of course, a beautiful view. You can also sit on this shaded lakeside deck and keep an eye on the activities taking place on the dock and water. It’s a great place for your morning coffee or 5 o clock cocktail, beer, or glass of wine!
You will really enjoy the private dock – both for a place to keep your boat(s) and a place to swim. The swim platform alone is 12×24. That is more than enough room to sunbathe and ‘hang-out’ on those exquisite summer days! A boat ramp is just 2 minutes away at Indian River Marina.
Be sure to enjoy the fire-pit and bring ingredients for smores!
You will find the accommodations comfy and cozy, perfect for smaller groups. There are 2 bedrooms. One has a king-size bed and the other has twin bunk beds and a full size bed. There is an eat-in kitchen, outside dining area, laundry area, and a family room. There is a DVD player, stereo, 2 television sets, and wi-fi. The air conditioning and ceiling fans will keep you comfortable on hot summer days. All the windows and doors have screens on them which allow for cool breezes as well.
The biggest attraction, of course, is the lake itself. By day or night, the lake beckons you to come out and play. The lake has numerous coves to explore and hang out in. So many coves, so little time! Norris Lake is great for all kinds of water sports and fishing. An added feature is the cabin’s pontoon boat which is available for you to reserve.
The surrounding area offers countless recreational opportunities as well. The heart of Gatlinburg is approximately 75 miles south. Knoxville is 35 miles south. Come prepared to have a great time!
