Where can I dock my boat?

There are walkways along the entire perimeter of the house as well as eyelets on each side. Therefore, you may park at any side of the house! We do ask that you would bring your own ropes, as we do not leave any tied up.

Can I still rent the house if I do not have a boat?

Yes! However, you are still responsible for getting to the house. There are boats available to rent at our host marina, Powell Valley Marina or the next one down, Flat Hallow Marina. They both have ski, pontoon, and Jet Skis available. Click the link for more information:

Can we rent your boat or jet ski?

Sorry, our personal boat and jet ski are not available for rent. The jet ski is on the ramp at the house; however the key is not. We looked into being able to do this years ago but because of logistics and cost of liability insurance we had to give up on this dream.

Still have a question that wasn’t answered? Feel free to give us a call and we would love to give you more information!
