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 it was more than an 82 yr old could handle. For years I had helped him at the marina and with the USFS. 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 have done a complete demolition of the original dock and we are building a new one.  I am his daughter Lisa. My fiance (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. In May of 2019 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 a wonderful summer season this year. A special Thank You to our customers that have been with us continually thru the 3 closed years and the rebuilding. Loyalty is something hard to find in this day and age.

We are adding additional slips in the coming months for the  2022 boating season. Our slips are 10x25 with a 12 inch roof overhang. This accommodates mosts boats that you will find on Hiwassee. At this time we do have some slips available.  Feel free to call or email.

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 the marina number or 828-557-9883. 

If you would like to have information feel free to give us a call or email us. 


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 marker #3.  The home they built on top of the mountain above the marina is still where my mother lives today.  Over the years our returning customers have met my two sons Andy and Brad 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.
