ReviewsWrite a review
We rented this property in April 2006 for spring break with the kids & absolutely loved it. The house is fully equipped & very clean -- we felt right at home. All we had to bring was clothes, food & toiletries. It's unbelievable how many people could stay here even though it is listed as a 3 bedroom. We had 2 families staying together with 4 adults, 4 kids and had room for more. 2-3 families would fit very comfortably if you are looking to share rental costs. We rented a houseboat for a day from a local marina & had a great time on the lake. It is in a remote area so if you are looking to really "get away from it all" but still want the amenities at home with nice quiet neighbors on each side, then this is the place for you! Our stay was fantastic so we're renting it again this year. Working with the owners was a very pleasant experience -- definitely a family you can trust. The owner described it to me as "her little piece of heaven" and I now know why!

We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at your house. The house is stocked with everything you might need, and we had a fantastic time in the water. Thanks for helping us have such a great vacation.

My friends and I stayed a week in March and had a great time at the house. The house looks like it is brand new and is very nicely decorated. The pictures on the website don’t do it justice. The huge deck is perfect for spending time outside. Great neighbors. Owners are even better!

Guest comment entered by owner
From the Owners (Mike and Annette): We lived in Knoxville, TN for 10 years and enjoyed boating on Norris Lake every chance that we could. After moving to the Cincinnati OH area, we would travel back to Norris Lake to visit friends and go boating. We found that we missed the lake so much, that we eventually bought this cottage so that we could continue to enjoy boating on Norris with our friends and children. Norris is a beautiful and clean lake! It is great for water sports and relaxing. We hope that you and your family enjoy Norris and our cottage as much as we do! We welcome your comments and suggestions. Please share your experiences in our guestbook so that others can enjoy them too!

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: My wife and I lived in Knoxville, TN for 10 years and loved spending time at Norris Lake. We now live in Northern KY so that we can be closer to our families.
Why the Owner Chose Jacksboro:
Even though we moved, we wanted to continue to enjoy boating and skiing with our children and friends, so we bought this cottage to enjoy and share with others. Our property is close to our friends and it is in a wonderful area of Norris Lake.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our property has a covered dock and an on-site boat ramp (which is quite rare at Norris). We are near the end of a cove, so there is no boat traffic in front of the dock and it is very safe for swimming, even for smaller children. The lot is not steep and the house is close to the water, so it is easy to walk between the house and dock. Our property is very peaceful and relaxing - it's a great family get-away!
