Deerfield Resort

Deerfield Resort is an exclusive and secluded area nestled between the Cumberland Mountains and the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.  It is approximately 35 miles south of the Kentucky/Tennessee border off I-75, exit 134 (11 miles from La Follette and 30 miles east of Knoxville.)

Where beautiful lakes are plentiful, Deerfield is situated on the most beautiful lake of all – Norris Lake.  It has over 800 miles of shoreline and a surface area of 34,000 acres.  The water is 200 feet deep and clean enough to drink!  Even on busy holidays, the lake is never crowded; it is a water-skier’s and a fisherman’s paradise.

Deerfield is located 4 1/2 hours from the Cincinnati/Dayton area; 8 hours from Detroit; and 10 hours from Toronto, making this an easily accessible drive for a great getaway!

Why East Tennessee?

Deerfield Resort is centrally located within 7 hours driving time of 70 percent of the U.S. population.

There are four distinct seasons – each with its own beauty.  Spring comes alive with dogwood blossoms… Summers are sunny, ideal for water sports and magnificent sunsets… Fall is an explosion of brilliant colors and harvest moons … and mild winters encourage relaxing in a hot jacuzzi or enjoying a roaring fire.
