About Joanne Geveshausen
My husband and I both grew up in the Midwest. We met in Minneapolis, MN and married in February, 1984, moving to Kentucky in August of that same year. There we had three sons, but our love for the lakes (Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes) kept our thoughts of heading back that way percolating in the recesses of our minds. However, we discovered Norris Lake back in 2000, and the rest, as the saying goes, is history. We have made many memories here with friends and family over the years. We nurtured a vision of growing our slice of paradise so we could share this area with other lake-lovers and have been fortunate enough to make that dream a reality. We now offer three cottages here in the Big Creek area of Norris Lake and have spent a tremendous amount of time and energy making this a family-friendly place for you to come to year after year! From the awesome swim/boat dock, pontoon boats, kayaks, to the decks and fire pit, SEAS THE DAY is a great place from which to enjoy the lake. We are confidant that you never tire of the beauty in and around Norris Lake. It is a feast for the eyes! Additionally, East TN is a HUGE play ground. Not only does is it home to one of the prettiest lakes, but there acres and acres of land dedicated to hiking, four-wheeling, hunting, biking and horseback riding. The outdoor enthusiast has a cornucopia of options! C'mon and enjoy!
Joanne Geveshausen purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Joanne Geveshausen chose Jacksboro
We choose this area not only because of its proximity to I75 and to town, but also for its privacy, its peace and quiet, and feeling of getting away from it all. The fact that the cabin is on a dead end lane lends itself to those qualities. There are two marinas in close proximity to SEAS THE DAY. They are Indian River Marina and Whitman Hollow marina. This end of the lake has a plethora of coves to hang out in, rocks to climb and jump off of,and rope swings. It offers nice and smooth areas to ski or tube, and plenty of places to dangle a fishing line. At night, the star-studded sky is something to behold. It is my humble opinion that it doesn't get much better than this!
What makes this Cottage unique
As a guest here, you will really enjoy the night sky, the summer night sounds of crickets, owls, cicada bugs, the sun coming over the mountain in the morning, the swim area, the fire pit, the decks, the dock, the peace and quiet....I could go on and on. Additionally, it is conveniently located close to town. Food-city and super Wal-mart are approx 5 minutes away. Lowe's, Wal-Green's, CVS, hospital, Liquor barn, etc., all are nearby. If you have to make a beer run or an ice-cream run, it won't eat up much of your day, where you really need to be out on the lake!

Very easy , great communication with the owner.
Had a great time! Place was very clean, quiet and relaxing. Definitely plan to be back!
Linda was a great host and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in the cabin!
The area where the home is was very quiet and peaceful. It's tucked away from the main town yet close enough for quick trips to the store if needed or a quick bite to eat. The home was very cozy. It's gives you a warm country feeling in the mountains. The lake was beautiful and the patio gives a nice view of it if you don't want to walk down to the dock. The home was nicely appointed, comfortable, and clean. It was very nice to know that our host was close by if we needed anything (which we didn't because everything was in great working order). We stayed for Thanksgiving to get away from the city life and have some quiet family time. Our stay was perfect. Thanks for everything Joanne!
Awesome to hear you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving weekend at this property. For the most part, the weather was fabulous! Hope you can come again!
Perfect little cottage
A beautiful cottage by the lake! Very peaceful and quiet, just what we were looking for!
The house was in a great location, easy access to the dock, and close to the marina. We had everything we needed such as cooking utensils, dishes and towels. We had a great time.
