Property description

Leave it all behind and come into our affordable, lakefront cottage. Our home has 1380 sf of optimally-utilized living space, as evidenced in the photos. The accommodations, though modest, are well appointed, clean, and comfortable. Best of all...our deep water lake frontage, view, and accessibility are a most desireable complement. You are still 'on' the lake, even when you are in the house or on the deck.

It's a gentle slope down to our oversized 24 x 26 dock on year round deep water. The steps are double-stride and a handrail is there for those who need it. The SafeHouse is NOT located up a narrow, winding creek, nor is it behind a marina. There is a convenient TVA boat ramp less than 2 miles away in our neighborhood. You don't have to waste valuable lake time on your arrival day searching or backtracking to locate a place to launch your boat. For those unfamiliar with the lake, it's easy to find your way back to our dock once you've put the boat in the water.

We are located across the cove from a well known jumping cliff. On the lake we are between the full service marinas of Twin Coves and Norris Dam, and very close to Mountain Lake Marina. (A much less populated area of the lake!) Come and begin an annual tradition of a trip to Norris Lake with family and friends. It will be the best week of bonding, laughter, and memories made to share for a lifetime!

The SafeHouse has 2 bathrooms and we offer you the following sleeping arrangements::
- 3 bedrooms, each with a queen size bed.
- A bunk room that has 2 bunkbeds, twin over full.
- There is a pull out queen size couch in the living room.

We are tucked just into the mouth of a large cove so you will be protected from much of the turbulence and chop from the main channel. The cove is wide at our location, which means:
- No docks right on top of each other.
- Great water to swim and float in.
- Less thru boat traffic than on the main channel equals a safer swimming environment, less wake for your moored boat, and a more peaceful day on the dock. (Note: holiday weekends are always busier everywhere on the lake)

Our dock faces southwest for long hours of sunlight. For those who enjoy some shade in the middle of the day, we have a tree shaded deck at the top of the dock access. Have a look and see for yourself!

Note: Sorry, but absolutely NO pets allowed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: 2009 was our 15th consecutive year to vacation for a week at Norris Lake with our family and dear friends, both which continue to branch out! We were also blessed to find and purchase The SafeHouse. We have been seeking for a long time. We hope you love it too!

Why the Owner Chose Jacksboro:
Norris lake is part of us since our children were small. There is just no place better to relax and reconnect.
