About Indian River Marina

Debbie has owned Indian River Marina for 22 years. When this nearby house came up for sale in 2015, she knew she wanted to add it to the marina properties. Some cosmetic upgrades and all new furnishings went into the house to make it a perfect lakefront getaway.

Indian River Marina purchased this house in 2015

Why Indian River Marina chose Jacksboro

Convenience, close to town, no windy roads, and on Big Creek.

We really enjoyed our stay. Nice Marina. Great for the price. Wife wished it had a dishwasher. Laundry was nice. Right at the water and close to Jacksboro Lafollette. We visited Oak Ridge while we were there too. Host was responsive to our request.

Experience was great. The owners were easy to deal with and had great communication with me. (Email) The house was older but very clean . The young man working at the marina was helpful and answered all question. Would definitely go back!

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had never been to Norris Lake before and we were looking for a rental right on the lake. Fun Factor was a great location. The back deck overlooks the lake and the walk to the water is not overly steep. The proximity to the marina was a bonus because we could walk right over to rent boats, kayaks and paddle boards. House was well supplied and clean. The only negative were the beds in the third bedroom. They were not especially comfortable, but it was fine for the grandkids. The staff were friendly and helpful. I had some questions before arrival and Debbie got back to me right away. With all the options of rentals we were very happy with our choice.

House was everything you would want.

  • 4 of 5

House was great and location was great. I didn't give it 5 stars because they advertise a covered boat dock, but the roof is so short, a normal boat will not fit under it. Luckily there was room to park on the other side, which worked out just fine!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The slip at the house was built for a runabout, not a pontoon with a Bimini top. Please let me add that a covered 10 x 30 boat slip, capable of handling any height boat, is included at the marina with this rental house. I will make that offer clearer to future renters.
