About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8), Separate Hot Tub house

Feel like you are in a 'tree house'...yet have a private double deck dock in a private cove! Whether you are a house-boater, skier, fisherman, sightseer, sunbather, or water sports lover, Norris Lake has it all. Norris Lake was created by the construction of the Norris Dam in 1936. This hydroelectric project was the Tennessee Valley Authority’s first. The lake’s beautiful blue-green waters span more than 800 miles of shoreline covering 34,000 acres. Norris’ boundaries extend up the Clinch and Powell rivers which feed Norris with clear, pristine waters. It’s an ideal environment for sportsmen and vacationers alike.

This home is situated in a beautiful cove on Lake Norris. It has 2 bedrooms and the basement is a bunk area/game room. The upstairs has a king size bed in one of the rooms and the other room has a queen size bed, one full bathroom with shower/and tub , separate private hot tub house, porch, stairs to the dock, basement area with couches/queen bed, 1 single bed with trundle single under both the beds in the basement bunk area. There is high speed internet and TV's both upstairs and in the bunk room. Washer and Dryer are downstairs.

Enjoy the beautiful wildlife, private setting, swimming, boat slip, jet ski slip, lots of lounge chairs, fishing.... all you need to relax and 'get away' from it all!

Please be aware that there are 250 +/- steps from the cabin to the dock (and back up again!!). Well worth the effort to get there and back, but we like to be sure our customers know this before committing to the rental.

Closest marinas by car are Whitman Hollow Marina and Indian River Marina, and by boat--Sequoyah Marina is closest. Boat rentals are available at all three of these marinas.

Why Chuck French chose Jacksboro

We bought this lake house because Lake Norris is the most beautiful lake in the WORLD! We also bought it so that we could create and cultivate wonderful memories with our children, family, extended family, and friends! The waters are the most beautiful boating waters around! The marina's are so clean and well equipped. The trees are stunning around the fresh clear water on Norris Lake. Our family memories continue to grow at this wonderful home on the lake.

What makes this cabin unique

Tubing! Fireworks! Jetski, parking Houseboats in the cove to extend the number of rooms and family members that can stay overnight! Cater parties on the dock! Boating! Fishing! Skiing! Water color painting! Hottub parties! Swimming! Hiking! Relaxing......

We chose this property because of the dock and the lake and we were delighted with both!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful lake! This property sits in a nice cove where boats aren't very interested in investigating. And the lake and shore was so clean! I felt like the grandkids were safe in the water all the time. We packed our lunch every day and went down to the dock and stayed until the sun was behind the mountain. The weather was wonderful. And when we went back up to the house we played in the hot tub.

We had 8 people (5 adults, 3 kids) in a 2 bedroom 1 bath house and all of us were comfortable all the time. The owners have certainly thought through the layout and use of the house and have made the most of it. We enjoyed the deck and ate most of our meals on the deck.

We knew before we arrived that there were a lot of stairs to get to the lake. But because none of us had ever seen 265 stairs in one place before we really didn't realize what we were in for. It is truly A LOT of stairs! But we congratulated ourselves every day for making it down the stairs and then making it back up the stairs. By the end of the vacation our muscles didn't hurt near as much as they did the first and second day.

We planned ahead for the week and each adult committed to fixing dinner one night. We planned those meals as well as breakfast, lunch and snacks, and we brought the food we needed so we could just stay put. And that's exactly what we did. We didn't need to leave the whole time we were there. I would suggest people consider that because it takes a little while to get to Jacksboro.

Every day one of my kids made a comment about how much fun this was. My grandchildren became big fish! We had a great vacation and have already decided we want to make it an annual event!

I really appreciate the effort the owners have put into making sure people are comfortable in their house. Thank you! We had a blast!

Tennessee Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

If you like peace and quiet this is the vacation home for you. Very comfortable and cozy. We had 7 adults and although there was only one bathroom it worked out well. King size bed in Master amazingly comfortable. Plenty of seating in living area and very comfortable, dont stay to long on couch or you will fall asleep. Dock and lake at the end of the 230+ stairs amazing. Turqoise water was perfect as it was quite hot during our week. The steps up from the lake is one hell of a workout but it was doable. Take your time and its all good. The house had everything we needed for our week and more. Hot tub was a nice bonus! Chuck, Thanks for letting us stay in your home. It was a great family vacation in a gorgeous area!

The dock and lake are amazing!

  • 3 of 5

My friends and I stayed ay this property for six nights. We had a great time floating in the lake and jumping off the dock. I do think that it should be disclosed that the 265 steps are steep and very slippery after a rain. My 27-year old athletic daughter fell and slid 15 steps before she could stop herself. I fell as well but fortunately only slid two steps. We both were pretty bruised up! I say this because no way would I take children down these steps after a rain. We understood from the description that there were a lot of steps (not a problem for us because we are all pretty active), but since it rained for the first three days, it was dangerous. Otherwise, nice house, quick responses from owner on a few minor issues.

The area is beautiful. The roads are challenging throughout that part of Tennessee. We had a great time and the house was as described. No surprises

You can use this home as a 'hub' for multiple houseboats. Use the dock to cater events! BBQ ribs on the dock! Grill on the dock-- we have also rented several houseboats and used the house, and the dock for the perfect family reunion. Ask us how and we will help you coordinate such an event! From getting the houseboats to the cove provisioning them.
