About Jim or Marj Gaskell

We've been vacationing as a family at Norris Lake for over 15 years. It's our favorite place to be and it will be yours too!

Jim or Marj Gaskell purchased this house in 2004

Why Jim or Marj Gaskell chose Jacksboro

Our property is very peaceful and has beautiful wooded surroundings. If you are looking for a great place to relax and enjoy friends, this is the place.

What makes this house unique

Since we are located back in a cove, swimming around the dock or going for longer swims is perfectly fine since there is no boat traffic. There is also great hiking on the TVA trails across the cove you are certain to enjoy.

The property is on a 30 degree slope which is pretty common for the Norris Lake area. There are 79 steps from the lower porch to the boat dock. The steps are made of hardscape blocks and are a huge improvement over the railroad timbers we use to have if you stayed with us before. Most properties around Norris Lake are steep and many can have up to hundreds of steps so its good to verify if this is an area of concern.

Great place for relaxing next to the lake

  • 5 of 5

Great property. Excellent escape from the hustle and busy life we all need. Be aware of the steps for elderly. You can drop them at the ramp where there's a dock. Very steep being from Ohio it's new but seems very normal for the area. Everything was as advertised and is a beautiful home. Enjoy

Nice place and great location on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends had a great time. There was enough space for 12 of us comfortably. The boat dock and private cove were key for our vacation. We used a service that brought a boat directly to the house which was a very nice feature recommended by Jim. With a marina right around the corner and cliff jumping around the other corner made this a perfect place for us and our friends!
