During January 2014 we had a section of the roof to collapse under a heavy snow load.  Dad wasn't in a hurry to repair it because it was winter and no one was using it. No boats were damaged. Then with all the guidelines imposed by the USFS and TVA it was more than an 82 yr old could handle. For years I had helped him at the marina with both. In early 2016 we started handling it for him. He passed away on 5-31-2017 while we still waited on the USFS to renew our permit. Before his death we made a promise to him to rebuild it. We did a complete demolition of the original dock and have constructed a new one.  I am his daughter, Lisa.  Mac and I  are continuing that promise.  After waiting over a year for the permit and getting help from Mark Meadows office we opened Memorial Day weekend 2018. One year after his passing. Since then we launched additional slips. I think he would be proud. Please come by and see what we have done.

Bear with us during our construction period. We still have a lot going on. 

We hope to see you soon!

We would like to express a heartfelt Thank You to all our customers for wonderful summers. A special Thank You to our customers that have been with us continually throughout the 3 closed years and the rebuilding period  which continues. Loyalty is something hard to find.

We are adding additional slips in the coming months for the  2023 boating season. Our slips are 10x25 with a 12 inch roof overhang. This accommodates most boats that you will find on Hiwassee. At this time we do have a waiting list.  Feel free to call or email and we will be happy to contact you when we have space available. 

Our marina is being built by Mac Daddy Docks with all cuts and welds being done onsite.  He also builds private docks.  You can reach him at 828-557-9883. 

If you would like more information feel free to give us a call or email us @ or 828-644-LAKE(5253), cell 828-361-2220.


Watching families enjoy the lake makes t


My parents purchased this marina in 1955 when in only consisted of 10 open slips and 10 sets
of lockers which fishermen needed to keep their fishing tackle in. The original location was in Hiwassee Resort which later than became Bear Paw. Then it would have been similar to a Norman Rockwell painting when we had a less complicated lifestyle. They wanted the marina to run 6mo and close when the lake levels dropped. In 1974 they decided to move it out of the cove at Bear Paw and closer to their home near mile marker #3.  The home they built on top of the mountain above the marina is where my mother lived until 2-10-22 when she passed away. Over the years our customers have met my two sons Andrew and Bradley when they worked summers for my Dad. Pictured above are their sons. 


Meet the 3rd generation of lake lovers, their sons. They are pictured with me above enjoying Hiwassee Lake. Meet (l to r)Chase, Colt, Cade and Connor! We love these guys and want to continue a family tradition.
