Jacksboro cottage description

Leave it all behind and come into our affordable, lakefront cottage. It's a gentle slope down to our oversized 24 x 26 dock on year round deep water. We are 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.

Our home has 1380 sf of living space. The accommodations, though modest, are well appointed, clean, and comfortable. But...our lake frontage, access, and view are SPECTACULAR!

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 more busy 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.

                            This was our first stay at The Safehouse, and we just loved it! We were looking for a nice clean, affordable home on the lake. This home was extremely clean and well maintained. The location was perfect, being right across from a jumping rock and convenient to marinas. The dock is constructed of non-wood material, which was so nice not having to worry about splinters. Not to mention, it was large enough for canopy and at least two ski boats. The owners could not have been any nicer to deal with. THANK YOU!. We will be back!.

                            What a great time at this lake house! The house has everything you need for a great vacation. We have stayed at Norris Lake a number of times & some of the houses on the lake have many steps to get to the lake...This house has such a nice gradual walk to the lake, it is easy to get to the lake & enjoy all the water activities. The house is well equiped with everything you need. It is spotless & the view from the deck & lower level is beautiful as the pictures show. We definately will rent there again. It is so peaceful but exciting!! Highly recommend it.

                            We just got home from our week stay in the Safe House, which was our second time to stay here and again had a great vacation. Norris Lake is the most beautiful, clear, clean lake we have ever stayed on. We had 3 families (9 people) and the house was very roomy for us all and the kitchen had everything you will need. The docks and back patio were our favorite spots at the house. The cliff and cave across the lake from the dock became our hang out spot every night before coming in for dinner. We even found another cave just past Stardust Marina on the right up high on the hill. Take your flashlight and check it out - very cool!! Sequoyia Marina has wonderful food -lunch or dinner. The stairs are wonderful - very deep to help make the walk easier. My mother and stepfather both have bad knees and they made it up and down several times each day. Overall, this house and lake are absolutely wonderful. We will be back again next year!

                            We took two families (4 adults, 3 children under age 8). What an amazing time!! The house is set up perfect for 2 -3 families given it has 2 full baths, 3 bedrooms plus a bunk room for the kids. The house has everything you need in the way of cooking. A nice big grill with utensils, a fully stocked kitchen, 2 refrigerators, fully stocked dinner ware and cooking utensils, etc. There is room for outdoor dining in multiple locations (upper deck, lower patio, and the lake side deck). Most importantly, the stairs leading down to the water are an absolute breeze. The steps are 3-4 times as deep as they are high so its a very gentle walk back up to the house. There is no issue in "running back to the house" if you forget something. What a relief! Overall the house was very clean and modern, furniture and bedding were great, clean, and comfy. We will definitely be rebooking next year. Also, we stayed the week of 15 - 22 June and the water was the clearest I have ever seen on any of the normal vacation lakes (Norris, Cumberland, Dale Hollow, etc). The visibility must have been approaching 20 ft in depth. The water level was up at the top of the waterline so that may have been what helped the visibility.

                            The Safe House has everything you need for a weekend or week long get away. The house is much bigger than you would think on first look. The 7 of us had pleanty of room to move around and sleep enjoy our long weekend. The price was great for the location and the scenery was gorgous in the spring. Nice Large deck on the back of the house almost doubles the living space. pictures do not do the place justice. This fishing was not bad and the kids enjoyed the time fishing and swimming on the dock. One note, Unless you like long drives down twisty hilly roads, make sure you stop by the grocery before you get there. Anything that you would need to prepare your meals and relax is there. There is a larger grill and two fridges so You have pleanty of storage for a weekend or a week. We would like to go back..

                            Our family just returned from a week at The Safe House. It was a great cottage. It was very clean (and I am a clean freak!). The cottage was fully stocked with everything you could need except the items you are told to bring. The home looks small from the front, but that is very deceiving. It was much bigger than I thought and there was plenty of room. Loved the kitchen and the view from it! We brought our two jet skis. The launch is about a 1/2 mile away. Never had to wait to put them in the water. I am a nature lover, and we saw deer, a box turtle swimming in the water near the dock, and I even saw a beaver in the water one morning. The water is amazingly clean! You can see down to your feet, it's that clear. There is a jumping cliff with a cave below just across the cove. I just can't say enough what a great time we had here. We will definitely be coming back!

                            My wife and I needed a break from the big city and decided last minute to take a trip to Tennessee. We found the SafeHouse on vrbo and thought it would be perfect for our tastes. Given it was last minute I was worried about making something work, but the owners were more than accomodating and went out of their way to ensure everything was ready. The house is very clean and nicely laid out. It is obvious they take care of their property, and that makes a huge difference when staying somewhere you've only seen in pictures. The drive from town is about 15 minutes on a winding road through the hills. The lake is beautiful and the view from the many levels of decks and the dock are excellent. Even in the winter it was very relaxing and the weather was nice enough to spend plenty of time outside. The yard was very nice and large, but it is a little steep so activities in the yard are a bit limited. The deck at the house however is very large and has plenty of room to relax and hang out. The fire pit area is also very nice and has a level area with a deck and picknick pable. Overall, we had a great experience and would recommend the SafeHouse to anyone looking to hang out at the lake and just relax on the decks or on the water.

                            The four of us had a great time during our stay at the Safehouse in August 2010. The location was perfect! We loved the cliff jumping and hanging out with the other boaters. The water was always calm and clear. The house was fully stocked with everything we needed for our stay. It was a time to remember. We are actually planning a return trip this summer. Norris is the best!

                            We enjoyed our stay at the lakefront cottage. We stayed with another family and loved the big dock. Very clean and plenty of room for the 9 of us.

                          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.
