Norris Lake in Tennessee has a sparkling reputation for clean water and gorgeous scenery that the enfolding foothills of the Cumberland Mountains provide. If you plan on visiting in person, Beach Island Resort and Marina offers a fleet of 80-foot houseboat rentals as the perfect base for your adventuring crew.
Before you set out, the Beach Island staff will offer you a short driving lesson to make sure you’re comfortable behind the wheel. Six queen-sized bedrooms and a bunk room ensure everyone has comfortable sleeping room. The galley is fully outfitted and the top deck is perfect for kicking back in style—with a full bar, keg cooler, water slide, hot tub, and plenty of lounge chairs, it’s a natural place to congregate and enjoy the fresh air. When everyone is ready to settle down for the night, you can turn on the satellite TV for a relaxing movie night.
Beach Island Resort and Marina has up to 100-foot boat slips, additional pontoon and ski boat rentals, and an on-site marine repair facility. The dock store is stocked with everything from ice and snacks to ethanol-free fuel. For the fitness junkies, you can also swing by Beach Island Fitness at any hour for a good workout overlooking Norris Lake.
The marina is also just a casual stroll away from Bubba Brew’s Sports Pub and Grill. This hot spot includes three bars, live entertainment, corn-hole, and over 15 flat-screens alive with different sporting events. If you’re planning to visit around Independence Day, don’t miss out on Bubba’s Fourth of July fireworks extravaganza.
