The cabins are very clean. Decorated beautifully. Very homey with Comfortable furniture and bed. Owners are wonderful. We stay 4-5 weeks and hate to go home! Love Norfork Lake! The resort is close to the lake with lake view. Has a covered lighted dock. We bring our bass boat and love to fish.

We stayed at Take it Easy for a whole week. Our cabin was cute and clean!! Kids loved the ping pong pavilion. We were a short walk to the private dock which sits in a quiet cove just north of the bridges. The location is only a couple minute boat ride to the nearest marina, and about a 20 minute...

Absolutely 5 star resort! The cabins are beautiful, spotlessly clean, and include all amenities needed for a get away. The property is gorgeously well kept with easy lake access on site...loved the jet ski rentals! Hosts Kathleen and Jeff are the highlight and could not be more welcoming/accommodating to any needs. Highly recommend a trip to Take It Easy!

Booked the lighthouse for a family get together and loved it! All ages stayed in the cabin together and everyone had fun doing outdoor and indoor games, roasting marshmallows, having a birthday party and, the favorite, swimming and paddle boarding at the cove. The kitchenette was very handy and provided us with all the amenities of home...plus! The screened in...

We have been to the Take it Easy three times. It is a wonderful little get away. We were greeted with smiles and taken to the most quaint little cottage I have ever seen! The cottages are comfortable and clean. The scenery is spectacular and the activities are plenty. We stayed busy with paddle boarding, boating, swimming and hiking. But...

Kathleen and Jeff were wonderful hosts and set us up in Cabin 5 with a great view of the lake. The cottage was super clean and comfortable with a kitchenette and plenty of cookware! I highly recommend seeing "Hawaiian Punch" (not just any car) and taking a stroll through the woods to the lake.
