This unique rental cabin is secluded in the wooded mountains around Norris Lake, a perfect retreat for couples or a small family. This may look like your typical rustic cabin on the outside, but inside you will find artistic decor, unique architectural design, and modern amenities. This home has an upscale, classic, clean design that perfectly reflects the image of the Rock Harbor neighborhood. There are hardwood floors throughout, high ceilings, oversized windows that enhance the lighting, an open floor plan, and a very sleek kitchen. As you make the "ascent" from the rugged outdoors into the classic, modern indoors, you are sure to feel a vibe of peace and tranquility. There is a basement as well that is a family game center. The garage door access is not for parking inside. This is the fun zone - pool table, Foosball, darts! Have a family cornhole tournament - boards and bags provided!

The main level of this home is split by 2 steps. One side hosts the kitchen, dining area, and family room in a modern architectural design. The high ceilings, hardwood floors, oversize windows, and artistic touches give this secluded cabin an urban feel inside, with a mountain feel outside... The other side hosts the bedrooms and bathrooms, and laundry room.

The driveway is not for 2-wheel vehicles. You will need a 4-wheel drive for driveway access. Hence the name "The Ascent" You are in the mountains and sometimes to access the houses there are tough driveways. This is one of them but is worth the effort.

This kitchen is highly functional with stainless steel side by side refrigerator/freezer, Frigidaire oven with glass top burners, dishwasher, toaster, extra deep Zuhne sink, and abundant concrete countertop with plenty of cabinet space. Prepare the family a buffet style dinner after a day at the lake or hiking! There are all the necessary utensils and cookware for a 7-person feast. And bring some charcoal to fire up the grill. There is a dining table for 4 in this space and four barstools at the kitchen island. There is a Keurig coffee maker so bring the K-cups. A standard coffee pot is available as well. There is enough seating in the family room for everyone to enjoy a movie on the flat screen after a late dinner. Of course, you can stay connected with the free Wi-Fi.

Two steps away are the sleeping quarters, bathrooms, and full-size washer and dryer. The queen master suite has plenty of well-lit space. Large windows allow better chances to view deer, wild turkeys, possibly an elk. There is no chance of missing the natural beauty of the Tennessee wooded mountains surrounding Norris Lake. Relax, breathe in the sunlight and the mountain air, and enjoy the tranquil moments provided by nature. The master bath is truly unique. Modern, oversize tiled shower with large, tiled bench is sure to amaze you. An artistic, yet functional double vanity allows plenty of room for 2 to prepare for the day. The second bathroom is shared by the other 2 bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other has a double bed and twin bed.

The latest features added to the basement will be updated as they occur. Outside, you can enjoy plenty of hiking and exploring in the wooded hills surrounding Norris Lake. There is a charcoal grill for evening BBQs. While Dad is grilling, the rest of the family can enjoy an outside cornhole tournament. Or gather around the firepit for some family bonding time. Don’t forget the marshmallows and hot dogs.

There is year-round lake access via Cedar Grove Marina. You are welcome to bring your boat with you. Please do not try to bring the boat or the trailer down the driveway. Another way this property lives up to its name, is its steep concrete driveway. Due to the steep slope, a 4WD or AWD vehicle is necessary. This is especially true in rainy/snowy conditions. Some 2WD vehicles could have problems making "The Ascent" out of the driveway even in the best weather, so please plan accordingly. The property is located in a secluded cul-de-sac, so if you do not think you can make "The Ascent" up and down the driveway, you can safely leave your vehicle at the top.
