                          Owner info

                          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 House:
                          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!
