About Indian River Marina

Debbie and Chuck Samples have owned Indian River Marina for 22 years.

Indian River Marina purchased this house in 1999

Why Indian River Marina chose Jacksboro

Debbie watches too much HGTV. What better way to use all this newfound knowledge than on your own vacation rental house? So, husband Chuck, conveniently a builder, helped fulfill the dream by working with her to remodel the Lakeside, one of the newest additions to the Cottages of Indian River.

What makes this house unique

Newly remodeled. Designer decorated. Rental includes boat slip. Two miles from town.

Norris Lake Relaxation, At It's Finest!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at Indian River Marina many times in the past and we are never disappointed! This was our first stay The Lakeside Cottage and we will definitely be back! It's be location is a very close walk to your covered slip in the Marina. It is an older home that they have renovated and the three bedrooms with just one bath can be a little cramped when sharing the house but the covered patio makes all those uncomfortable few minutes go away when relaxing in the morning, evening or even during a rainy day!

A couple sun shades on the west side of the patio would be a great minimal investment to cut down on that late evening sun that keeps this summer time location warm all day long!

Don't forget when traveling with big groups, the owners have three other new build cottages right across street that makes for a nice option when multiple families and/or couples want to travel together but also have some alone time!

I recommend The Lakeside and Indian River Marina to all those who love the lake life!

First time staying at this marina and we will come back for sure. The house was amazing! Super clean and updated. We had a Perfect view from the deck for weekend bands at the marina. The staff at the marina was very friendly and they hands down have the best wings ever. Close to town if you need anything. Had a blast and already planning out next trip back to this house!!! Thanks for a great stay!

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.
