About Indian River Marina

Debbie and Chuck Samples have owned Indian River Marina for 20 years.

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, husband Chuck, conveniently a builder, helped fulfill the dream by working with her to design the Cottages of Indian River.

What makes this cottage unique

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

Exactly what we expected

  • 5 of 5

Our 3-night stay in the Firefly was the perfect getaway. The cottage was clean, modern and exactly how it was described on this site. It had everything that my wife and I needed for our stay. We ended up forgetting a few things for our stay, town is less than 10 minutes away which was nice. We also rented on of their pontoon boats for a couple of days. There was slight issue with the boat on the first day, Phillip already had a solution for us before even telling us the news. We didn't miss a single minute on the water. Phillip was running the marina all weekend, polite, helpful, hard-working young man. The amenities and service of Indian River were top-notch and we will be returning.

Solid as a ROCK - once again - but mother nature decided to rain a little bit!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I have stayed here many times in the past and we love everything about it! Great covered boat slip, great place with everything you would need to cook and entertain with - but we enjoy the quiet time in the mornings while I enjoy coffee on the porch!

We did do something different due to the rain that had set in on Sunday morning - traveled to Knoxville and enjoyed brunch and a few drinks - I am really glad we did! We got back to the lake around 2 and the rain was gone and the water was glass!

We can't wait to get back here one more time before the weather turns cold!

Perfect lake house cottage on a perfect lake!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the firefly for four nights in July 2016. We were so happy with our experience and had a wonderful stay. The cottage was immaculate and decorated superbly. We had everything we needed except groceries and the grocery store was a short 5-10 minute drive away. I could live in this cottage I loved it so much. I cant tell you what a difference it makes to stay somewhere that is like brand new and so clean and modern. The parking was right out front with 2 extra long spaces and the marina was also right out front, just a short walk. The marina was so clean and the staff was excellent. This was our first time at Norris Lake and I am ruined for every other lake out there. It was so clean and beautiful. Debbie the owner was fantastic and a joy to work with. We will stay here again for sure!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The Firefly was very nice for our getaway! It was very well appointed and perfect for our getaway. The cottage had everything we needed. The staff at the marina had us checked out and on the lake quickly and efficiently. For those with their own boats, the launch is wide and perfect for stress free putting in, and retrieving! Overall a 5 star 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.
