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 Jacksboro
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.

October 2019 - Summer Weather Was Perfect
We planned a last minute trip, based on the warm weather and it did not disappoint! The Firefly cottage worked out perfectly! It has everything you need and all the right sports channels to catch college football on Saturday evening.
Norris Lake Birthday Getaway
We loved our weekend getaway. Firefly is beautiful and all a couple needs for a relaxing stay. The lake is beautiful and Firefly is right across the road from the marina. We rented a pontoon for the day and enjoyed the beautiful scenery on the water. The town of Jacksboro is only 7 miles from the rental. We hope to return again. I would recommend this place for anyone wanting a different place to explore.
Good for 2 old people.
Nice little house, enough for 2 people. Very nice marina. Newer slips with electricity. This is our 3rd year, and will most likely be back for the 4th. Wish there were not so many steps and closer to the main lake. Best bargain on the lake.
Super clean cottage, very nice boat dock, friendly and helpful personnel at the marina. We enjoyed our stay and hope to be back soon.
We enjoyed our stay on lovely Lake Norris!!
The cottage was super cute, clean and new! We had everything we needed and then some. It was great to have the boat slip included and also great to know we could have rented a boat at the marina as well. Very nice! Highly recommend.
Just like home.
Very nice place., everything was as said. Thank you We will be back.!!
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.
