About Joanne Geveshausen
My love affair with lakes is a direct result from growing up in Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes. After moving from Minneapolis to Lexington, KY. in 1984, my husband and I were looking for that perfect lake and we found it here at Norris. We have been enjoying Norris Lake since the year 2000. We rented for several years in various areas and then decided to buy on the north side of the lake by Indian River Marina.
Joanne Geveshausen purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Joanne Geveshausen chose Jacksboro
We like it on this part of the lake because of its proximity to the interstate and convenient location to stores, etc. Very cool that way! We have worked hard on making our cabins (we have three rentals close by each other) a great place for for friends and families to gather and enjoy all that the lake and surrounding area has to offer! We invite you to check out our other places! We are pet-friendly and people-friendly too!
What makes this Cabin unique
I love sitting on the porch swing. It offers a great view of the lake and it is really fun watching all the boats go by. The moon, when it is visible, is stunning to see. The surrounding woods provide a home to many singing birds. The mountains surrounding the channel have many personalities, sometimes shrouded in fog, sometimes you can hear owls, even coyotes. All in all, "Suite Spot" is sure to please!

Quiet, peaceful with great view
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Suite Spot on Norris Lake. The cabin is just like in the pictures. Perfect for a couple or a small family. The weather was cold (20’s and 30’s degrees) but we were warm in the cabin. Too cold to use,the deck much unless we bundled up. That view was amazing. We enjoyed hiking on trails around the area with our dog. Linda and Joanne were very responsive. Cabin was clean and well stocked. I would recommend it.
Really glad you guys enjoyed your visit! Too bad the weather was so cold but that is one thing about East Tennessee especially this time of year - you never know what the weather will do. It can be 20 degrees one day and 60 the next! Hope you can come back during warmer weather and really enjoy the view!
The views are stellar. The decor is charming. The kitchen was well stocked with all of the pots and pans we needed to make a good dinner. It was easy to find, even in the dark. We'd love to come back to the lake in the summer.
Glad you guys enjoyed your visit to Suite Spot! Hope you can come back when the weather is warmer and you can enjoy the lake!!
Great spot to relax!
Fantastic view with the fall colors in full. The cabin was a little dated. The soft spot in the floor was a little concerning in front of the refrigerator. Also I believe the middle bath would be better suited as a closet I could only just turn around in it. The basin in that shower was metal and rusty which creates issues in itself. Please take the 700$ from my 3 day stay and replace the mattress in the bunkbed room. It was the only mattress big enough for two and it is shot. The cabin was very cozy and my wife and I had no problem relaxing there. Fantastic deck and the view from it is amazing. I wish we had more time we would like to have rented one of the pontoons.
Hey James – Let me start off by saying that I am a little confused by some of your comments so let me try to address each one individually based on its merits. You state that the cabin is a little dated. This is really confusing to me as we just did a major update about 3 years ago. The color scheme was chosen in part, because of its current trend in design and fashion. Also chosen, in part, because of its cheery and welcoming feel, something we felt was important to our guests. Something you may not be aware of is, born out of necessity during the past 8-year recession, a major design trend today is the repurposing and redesign of older furniture giving it new life. Not only is this practical from a financial perspective, but, for the most part, furniture made in the 50’s and 60’s is of a much better quality than furniture made today. “Retro” style is very popular today – taking some older, refurbished pieces and mixing them with newer pieces. I was not aware of a soft spot in front of the refrigerator. I will certainly look into it and address accordingly. Thanks for the heads up! As stated on Suite Spot’s VRBO info. page, it is noted that the cabin is 600 square feet. By that very nature, the rooms are smaller than most folks are probably accustomed to. That being said, both the bed in the master bedroom and the bottom bunkbed in the second bedroom are full size so your comment about the bottom bunkbed “was the only bed big enough for two people” is confusing. As far as the $700 you paid goes, your full $300 security deposit will be automatically refunded to your credit card company via VRBO within 14 days from the day of your departure. The bunk beds do not have box spring bases so there is not as much support as an adult probably needs. But we have found that the bunk beds are fine for kids. Really sorry that the shower stall in the first bathroom is so small. Did you not see the full-size tub/shower combination in the back bathroom? Really glad you enjoyed the amazing view from the large back deck/porch! It truly is a “million-dollar view”. Maybe you will get a chance to visit us again and take a ride on the beautiful lake!
"Suite Spot" was perfect.
Two person stay with two well behaved dogs and we had plenty of room in the house. Quiet area when we were there over a weekend. Obviously the view and lake access were great. We especially appreciated the fenced in covered porch so the dogs could go inside and and out while we enjoyed the deck. Open area deck with fire-pit and grill was easy as well. Joanne was a great host and rented us a kayak on a last minute request. We will come back and visit again.
Beautiful & Relaxing
What a fantastic view! My husband & I have been through a lot lately and needed some time away. This place was exactly what we needed! Thank you for offering this home for us to spend some quiet time alone. Terri -Granbury, TX
Beautiful view and peaceful stay
We had a wonderful time at Suite spot. It was easy to find. The only problem we experienced was with the TV but Joanna was quick to respond and had it fixed quickly. This is a great place for a couple to relax and unwind. The bedroom was cozy with a full size bed.
Just a short drive from the cabin we were able to go to McCloud mountain restaurant. (Reservation only). That was the main reason for our stay. All in all we look forward to renting again from Joanna and staying at her larger cabin down the street with our family next year.
"Suite Spot" is located right down from Indian River Marina. This location is on a fabulous part of the lake. The next marina via water is Whitman Hollow. Suite Spot is a great place to venture out onto Norris lake for skiing, tubing, swimming, fishing, or whatever fits the mood!
