Not to mention your own private, covered boat dock only 42 steps from the back door. (dock/lakefront steps not accessible Oct-April) (see bottom of page for more dock info). Hitch up the boat! Pack your gear! Head to The DAWG Pound of Norris Lake!

The DAWG Pound is THE All-American Family Vacation Rental Cabin. The 3BR lakefront home sleeps up to 12 guests (plus the family dog or 2). It is safely tucked away in a cove off the main channel- a short boat ride away from Beach Island Marina/Bubba Brews. Bring your boat (or rent a pontoon) and enjoy your private, covered dock. Guests enjoy the convenience of free boat launching on site and ample parking for the trailer. Bring along the jet skis with the boat, the level circle driveway makes parking a breeze.

Family is the key to the best vacation, and The DAWG Pound has your family in mind. The master bedroom is on the main floor giving Mom and Dad some well-deserved peace and quiet. The rest of the team sleeps downstairs. On the lower level, there are 2 family suites with a full bathroom in each. Suite A has 2 queen beds and a convenient walkout to the screened in lower deck. Suite B also has 2 queen beds and a private bathroom. There is also a queen sleeper sofa in the family room.

The DAWG Pound has a fully equipped kitchen with modern appliances, an extra cooler for wine, beer, and sodas, and a dishwasher. Basic cookware, utensils, dishes, etc. are included with your stay. Use the grill for a pre-game BBQ or a grilled 'Catch of the Day'. Or reminisce about the day's adventures around the firepit. There is wood provided year-round, so don't forget to pack the roasting sticks and marshmallows.

If rain forces you inside, The DAWG Pound has your back. Whether you prefer watching football or streaming videos, the Smart TV in the family room allows you to make that choice. If the kids overtake the remote, you can still tune in to your favorite show in the Master bedroom. There's free Wi-Fi, board games, even a telescope! Property is located 20 mins from Chuck Swan for hunting, 4 wheeling and hiking. Enjoy the comforts and conveniences of home, while you spend quality time with your family- Norris Lake's All-American Family Vacation at The DAWG Pound!

The house and property were beautiful. We swam in the lake every day. We loved the beautiful view of the mountains as we sat on the deck and dock. The master bedroom was a little warm. The bed in the master bedroom slumped to the left side. It was uncomfortable. It would have also been nice if there were TV's in the other bedrooms as well. Thank you for the wonderful review of The Dawg Pound, I am so glad you enjoyed yoru stay. I will look into the items mentioned and get them taken care of. Have a blessed day!

We could not have picked a better place for our 29th wedding anniversary. This home is gorgeous, spotless, and fully equipped for an ideal getaway. We enjoyed cooking in the well-stocked kitchen, with a nice grill on the patio. There was ample seating options both indoors and out. We got our steps in, and a vigorous walk in the hilly neighborhood, where we encountered many friendly neighbors and spotted a huge bald eagles nest! Saturday we rented a pontoon and enjoyed a perfect day on the lake. There is a nice dock right out back. We loved hanging out around the fire pit at night. It's so peaceful and relaxing. The couches were comfortable for watching movies, and the beds were very comfortable. We loved that each room has its own private bathroom/shower too. The lot is great with a circular driveway and plenty of parking space. The owners were very thoughtful, with notes about where to find things, and the wifi info. The decor is beautiful and everything was so clean. We will definitely be back! Thank you so Much for choosing The Dawg Pound, you could not have described it better. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and will share your comments with the owners. Kathy and the Team at Norris Lake Cabin Rentals

I LOVE this place! Go DAWGS! The pictures on the website do NOT compare to how charming this place is! The dawg pound was a much-needed vacation after graduating from medical school. This was a welcoming, serene place where we could relax, unwind, and enjoy the peaceful surroundings of nature. The upstairs and downstairs area both had a delightful patio view of the lake where we enjoyed our morning coffee. We were able to grill, play cards/cornhole, hike/sight-see, and explore the beautiful surrounding area. The neighbors and dogs were friendly. There is a fire pit across from the house where we roasted marshmallows, had smores and watched the fireflies before sunset. There is a dock for boats and areas along the water for walking your dogs and making forever memories. This was my first time in Tennessee and the DAWG pound exceeded our expectations! It was invigorating, restorative, and rejuvenating for my upcoming board certification. We will, without a doubt, be back! Thank YOU! Wow what a great way to describe the Dawg Pound.Thank you so much for sharing your family time with us. Cant wait to see you next time. Kathy Nixon and the Team at Norris Lake Cabin Rentals

Can't wait to be back. Beautiful, clean and cozy cabin, seems much larger than the pics show. Located in a quiet serene part of the lake with plenty of privacy. Stocked with all the things you need for a comfortable stay. Great dock area with easy access to the main lake. Will def be back to the same property for future visits. Thank you Jeff for your review, looking forward to having you back! Kathy Nixon and the Team at Norris Lake Cabin Rentals
