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!

Why Jim or Marj Gaskell chose Norris Lake

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.

Very nice house, fun for kids, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our kids had lots of fun with the foosball and air hockey tables. Nice (safe) paver stone steps down to the dock. We loved it!

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay. Jim was very friendly and very accommodating to us. The house is absolutely gorgeous and has plenty of room. The only thing even slightly negative that I have to say is that getting from the lake to the cabin, there are a LOT of stairs that could make it difficult for elderly visitors or out of shape visitors to make it up and down. Other than that though, our stay was perfect. We couldn't be happier and we will definitely be returning. Thanks again Jim!

Fun weekend!

  • 4 of 5

The Gaskell's Lake Norriis house was great. The house is lovely, clean, spacious and well-equipped. Beds are comfy too. Jim was very accommodating and responsive.

Their little cove is gorgeous and private. Decent fishing too. However, the stairs down to the lake are a bear -- my elderly aunt had trouble.

We had a great, relaxing weekend!

New Years Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We decided to try a new way to celebrate in the new year so we all came from Florida to the mountains of Tennessee to enjoy the change of scenery. This home exceeded our expectations by far. The owner was so pleasant to work with, the house was immaculately clean, it was supplied with everything we could ever need and then more and the view was breath taking. The area had everything we needed and wanted. I highly recommend this home for your stay!

We've been coming to Norris Lake for many years, and this is one of the nicest, cleanest houses that we have rented. The house is very spacious, with enough room for all guests to spread out and not be on top of each other. The downstairs bedrooms are nice and private from the rest of the house. Bunk rooms provide nice extra sleeping space. The entire house was very clean and well-kept. The location in the cove is very nice and quiet. And being able to bring our dog along was a nice perk. Apparently, other pet owners have been respectful and cleaned up after their pets, as we did, because there was no sign of any other pets being there. I would definitely rent this house again :)

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very nice/clean accommodations that can easily handle a larger crowd. Enjoyed the cove, dock, and the decking surrounding the house. Worked with Whitman Hollow to rent a pontoon boat as well. Cannot beat the clear waters of Norris Lake!! Lastly, the owners allowed us to bring our two small (well trained) dogs (both about 15 lbs each) for a very reasonable charge.

Two large decks span across the entire house, View is spectacular, Dock connected to property, two 42'' color TVs with Direct Satellite TV, VCR and DVD player. High Speed Internet Gas grill, Dishwasher, Washer & Dryer, Game Room: Includes, fooseball, air hockey and electronic dart board and karokee machine. Also many , board games and videos. 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.
