Convenient and Secluded

Overhead view of Hiawatha Hideaway

Near the end of a road surrounded by lush forest, Hiawatha Hideaway is the perfect combination of convenience and solitude. With two spacious decks surrounded by tall trees, it's almost like you're in a giant treehouse. Enjoy the peaceful sounds of nature, with birds, foxes, racoons, deer, and other wildlife all around. If you're here in May or June, watch fireflies dance the night away.

While feeling worlds away from the hustle and bustle of normal life, Caryville, Jacksboro, and LaFollette are only a few minutes away.

Walmart is nearby, with a large supply of almost anything you may need. Food City is also a great choice, just a bit further down the road.

Liquor Barn has a great selection of beer, wine, and spirits. Just turn left and look for the big sign when you hit the end of Ridge Road.

Restaurants are nearby, from fast food to sit-down. We really enjoy Coal Creek Smokehouse, just a short drive away in Rocky Top. Be sure to try their Bacon Bouquet and spoonbread with some of the best BBQ you've ever had.

Knoxville is only a 30 minute drive if you crave something fancier, or just want a night on the town.

You will not find a better or more convenient location than Hiawatha Hideaway for your Norris Lake Tennessee vacation!

Hillside Tram

Up to four passengers can safely and effortlessly glide down to the lake where a fire pit and dock paradise await. No need to hike back up the hill when you need a refill!

Important Tram rules:

    • Maximum weight limit of 750lb. This includes coolers, firewood, and passengers. Exceeding weight limit may engage safety brake.
    • Sit still while tram is moving. Bouncing on tram may cause emergency brake to engage.
    • Always close tram door while tram is in use, and after exiting.
    • Children may not use the tram without direct adult supervision.

Ignoring these rules may result in waiting for hours for someone to provide assistance. Keep the load well under maximum and take multiple trips. Play it safe and enjoy the scenery!

We think Hiawatha Hideaway is the best vacation property on Norris Lake, but everyone has different preferences. Want a pool or hot tub? Have a very large group or just want more options? Check out their link above for many other cabins and condos at this fantastic resort!



At Hiawatha Hideaway our first priority is the health of our guests! Our cleaning crew is trained and experienced in COVID-19 cleaning protocols, using the same cleaning methods as hospitals, nursing homes, and other sensitive commercial areas.

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have temporarily removed all decorative pillows, shams, comforters, and quilts that cannot effectively be cleaned between every guest.

During the pandemic, clean sheets and pillows will be provided. You will need to bring your own comforter or quilt. We understand this may be an inconvenience, but our goal is a clean, safe environment for  your family and friends during these trying times.

If you have questions about this policy, or any COVID-19 concerns, please contact our property manager:
