Enjoy lake life in a gorgeous 3-bedroom, cottage-like floating home

Nestled on Norris Lake, this 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom floating home is the perfect getaway for a large family or group of friends. With 2,000 square feet of space, this home is just the right size for relaxation -- and with features like a gourmet chef's kitchen, screened-in porch and fire pit, you'll want for nothing.
The house sits right on the lake, providing just the right ambiance for unwinding. Fall asleep to the sounds of the water lapping against the home, and spend evenings on the porch sipping a cold drink. Light, neutral furnishings create a subtle yet stylish look, and there is plenty of sleeping space to accommodate up to eight guests. Plenty of windows in the living room let in lots of natural sunlight to keep the space airy and bright.

Nautical blue decorations keep with the ocean theme, including a surfboard wall decoration. A wall-mounted, flat-screen TV provides satellite entertainment, and a fireplace keeps things cozy on chilly, lakeside nights.​
The oversized eat-in kitchen features modern, stainless steel appliances and plenty of counter space. Overhead cabinets offer storage, and a bright blue backsplash adds a pop of color to the mostly white space. Pendant lighting offers an inviting glow, and big windows keep the kitchen bright.
There's also a more formal wooden dining table adjacent to the kitchen for guest dining.
The bathroom offers a combination tub and shower along with the standard toilet and vanity. However, there's nothing standard about this gorgeous basin sink -- it's made from an oversized rock! The sink sets on beautiful tile and creates a really unique look for this chic bathroom.
The master bedroom features a shabby feel with floral bedding and a vintage night stand.
A second bedroom offers a spot for four to sleep,and these bunk beds are perfect for kids! Beautiful windows let in lots of light, creating a cheerful space for play and sleep.
A third sleeping space is a small alcove that fits a twin-sized bed perfectly. This cozy spot offers just the right amount of space for one to snooze in peace and privacy.
The gem of this home is the screened-in porch, which uses string lights at night to add a neat vibe to the area. It's a great spot to eat al fresco or just enjoy the water.
The patio is directly adjacent to the lake -- and if you desire, you can jump into the water and enjoy a refreshing swim right from the deck!
