Thanksgiving with family
My elderly father and I came to the area to see my daughter and family for thanksgiving and this was a beautiful and relaxing place for us to stay.
We will definitely be back to stay!
Great location. Easy to find. Quiet marina. Will be staying again.
Quaint lakeside cottage
Small home but good size for a group of 6 to 8. Had everything most would need in a kitchen, and a gas grill. Free covered slip was great as well. Only thing I'd change is the ability to adjust the thermostat. It is stuck at 75 and gets quite warm in the bedrooms at night.
Oh, goodness, I wouldn't be happy with 75 degrees for sleeping either, so thank you for letting me know about the thermostat. Since we do not control the thermostat, there must be a problem. I'll have maintenance check it out immediately. Hope you'll come back soon, and I promise to have it frosty for sleeping!
Wonderful relaxing retreat!
It was a great property - clean and great size for families or couples. Located right by the marina (which has great food!). The property is close to Jacksboro (so, if you need to run into town for food or other items).
We enjoyed our stay and had a great time at Norris Lake.
We recently stayed at Lakeside for a long weekend with another couple. It was simply perfect! Cute updates throughout the property, awesome deck to relax and great proximity to the marina made it simple end/beginning to each day. The staff were all nice and ensured we had a great stay.
There was ample parking for our cars and boat trailer at the house which was an added bonus.
We can't wait to come back!
Very close to dock, clean, and easy to get to. Will be back!
As one of the most desirable vacation destinations in the southeast, Norris Lake has a long history beginning as early as 1911. During this year, the location for a future dam development in the upper Tennessee Valley had been discovered. The future development site named "Cove Creek Site" at the time was chosen due to its natural landscape and ability to host a large dam. On October 1, 1933, the relatively new Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) took on their largest project and first dam, the construction of Norris Dam. The initial budget for the project was over $32 million dollars. Flooding had been a problem for the Tennessee valley for some time, and it was the goal for Norris Dam to bring some stability to the uncontrollable and unpredictable flooding as well as provide a substantial power source to the area. The name for the dam was an honor given to a long time supporter of TVA and Nebraska Senator George Norris (1861 - 1944).
On March 4, 1936, Norris Dam was completed with the gates closed. The finished dam itself is 1,860 feet long and 265 feet high. By January of 1937, the Norris Reservoir was filled completely, creating the largest reservoir on a tributary of the Tennessee River. Norris Lake hosts 33,480 acres of water surface and approximately 809 miles of shoreline. TVA's finished project, the Norris Dam, also proudly delivers a maximum energy delivery of 131,400 kilowatts.
The construction process of Norris Dam and the reservoir required massive purchases and acquisitions. Over 152,000 acres of land were purchased; 2,841 families and 5,226 graves were relocated to provide the construction area needed for the huge TVA project. The town of Norris, TN, was initially founded and built to house all of the thousands of workers involved in the construction of Norris Dam.
