About Indian River Marina

Debbie Samples has owned Indian River Marina since 1995.

Indian River Marina purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Indian River Marina chose Norris Lake

Debbie watches too much HGTV and has had the itch to flip a house. When she happened upon pictures of tiny houses, she thought, "That's really all you need on vacation . . . a nice place to sleep at night because you're out on the lake all day." So, with the help of a builder, her dream was fulfilled with the Cottages of Indian River.

What makes this cottage unique

Brand new. Designer decorated. Rental includes boat slip. Two miles from town.

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.

The Firefly Cottage was wonderful! Clean, updated and beautiful! Would stay again!

  • 4 of 5

The marina is a nice marina. The covered boat slips are fabulous! The general manager of the marina (Philip) was a sincere pleasure - very helpful. My reason for not giving it 5 stars is due to another staff member who was very unfriendly. I don't know her name but she was unfriendly and less than helpful. Also - on the day she was at the marina, there was no upkeep happening in the marina restrooms or at the marina gift shop. A shame given the rest of the folks were top notch.

Working with Debbie in renting the cottage was simple and easy. She was very responsive.

We stopped by several other marinas on the lake and kept saying Indian River is better! It's further from "big water" - but that didn't keep us from exploring the lake.

Clean, like new, nice view of the marina, great restaurant

  • 5 of 5

Lovely marina view from this beautiful cottage. The cottage was spotless which I really appreciate. It was even prettier than the pictures:) The marina restaurant has delicious food and the staff are really nice. We didn't use the boat slip but we launched our kayaks at the marina and there was a huge no wake area to paddle on the right side. We'll definitely go back!
