Want to get away from it all without spending a month’s salary? We have just the place for you . . . the new Cottages of Indian River.

These cottages are brand new as of June 2015, located just across the street from Indian River Marina, and offer everything you need for your lake home away from home . . . fully-stocked kitchens for the cook, satellite TV in the living room, master bedroom and loft for the entertainment buff, WiFi if you must check your email, and a slip for your boat. If you don’t want to trailer your boat or don’t own one, rent one from us so you enjoy all 800+ miles of shoreline that the lake has to offer.

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.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

This cottage is very impressive.

  • 5 of 5

When we pulled into the area of the cottages it was late at night. We pulled up to the front of ours and thought this is so cute. We walked in and couldn't believe how NICE it was. This cottage was immaculate and brand new looking. The decor looked like a magazine. It was a perfect size for everything you would need . We stayed in the 1 bedroom with the loft which we didn't need all that. It made our weekend fun. The cottage came with a covered boat slip which was perfect. I would highly recommend this Marina.

Beautiful cottage on a beautiful lake!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the vista 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. we were able to leave all our stuff in our boat at the marina and no one touched it. 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!

Absolute Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

I really wanted to keep this little gem my secret! (Didn't want to make it book up to where it was hard to get) lol! But that wouldn't be fair to the owners whose hard work and beautiful home should be shared by all. First off pictures do not do this place justice. It is beautiful inside and out. Top of the line appliances and everything you need is available. We even went home and redid our deck and living areas to match some of their great ideas. There is a community area with a firepit and Weber grill which we used every evening. There was just a short walk down the boat ramp to the brand new 30' boat slip which was easy to access. Our boat and items were never messed with. The store was nice at the marina. One day we ran out of sandwich bags and the kids went down to buy some, however this item was not available. No worries they just provided some for us. 😃 on Friday night they had a live band that was really good. They let our 10 year old sing a song. She was a star. Overall we are a well traveled family and this is by far one of our faves. Best lake and cottage that we have stayed at. (Compared to Lake Cumberland and Dale Hollow) Can't wait to go back.

Loved it!

My fiance and I spent the Christmas holiday at the Vista, and now we want to build a cottage just like it! It's an adorable place, and the owners thought of everything to make a comfortable stay. Can't wait to go back!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was very comfortable and the kitchen stocked with all the essential pots, pans, dishes, etc. The four of us sat on the porch in the late afternoon enjoying the scenery while playing cards. The spiral staircase going to the upstairs bedroom takes some getting used to, but my adult children did just find. I would stay again.

Everything you need for a comfortable stay.

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully decorated, quality linen and a really large shower with shower head installed in the ceiling for those tall people like my husband. Did not like the spiral staircase leading to the second bedroom. Even my grand children, 11 and 8 yeas old, had trouble navigating. Property is on a steep hill and would not be ideal for small children.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The spiral staircase does require a certain amount of agility and is a necessity for the loft bedroom. You may enjoy the Firefly more since it's all on one level. We hope you'll return for another visit! Thank you, Debbie
