Magnificent 70' Houseboat with Roof Top Party Deck Walking Distance to DT Knox

Family-friendly Knoxville houseboat in Downtown Knoxville, near University of Tennessee
Tired of staying in the same old stuffy boring hotel room? So were we, so we decided to own our own Houseboat on the Tennessee River, where we could walk to just about everything. The “Moonlight Madness” is docked in the peaceful Volunteer Landing Marina in Knoxville. The marina is steps away from award winning “Ruth’s Chris” steakhouse and Calhoun’s On the River. You can walk to both as well as the Neyland Greenway, James White Greenway, Neyland Stadium, Thompson-Boling arena, University of Tennessee and the vibrant Market Street in Downtown Knoxville. We can accommodate 6 people in beds. We have 2 bedrooms, one king size bed in the master and a Full bed in the crew quarters and a queen size pull out couch, along with 2 bathrooms. We feature 3 decks, one off the bow, one off the stern (great for morning coffee or catching some rays) and a 70' PARTY DECK on the roof. The party deck has abundant seating along with 2 flatscreen HD television and a gas grill. The master also has a 40' Vizio UHD flatscreen with Smartcast. The salon also has a 50' UHD flatscreen. Our boat comes fully stocked with clean linens and towels. The galley also comes fully stocked with dishes, utensils and small appliances along with Hi-Speed internet. You will meet a lot of very nice people that reside at the marina full time. Also, we have a EZGO golf cart and 2 Kayaks,1SUP and 2 beach cruiser bikes that are available for you to use while at our boat. Sorry, but the Houseboat doesn't leave the marina because of the river current. We also have a full-time Marina Manager and store on site should you need anything or have any questions with our boats. We want your stay with us to be a memorable one, and will make every attempt to make you want to come back.

Riverboat stay
First time staying on a boat. A little cramped but what we expected. Boat was clean and the golf cart was a great feature. We were there for Tenn basketball game which was in walking distance. Would recommend staying here.

Poor Customer Experience
I first want to recognize that the majority of reviews are 5 stars and had so badly wished that would be my experience as well. Unfortunately, I can not rate my experience as such and find it valuable to share with others, as highly unlikely the owner repeats, but has shown this level of service is possible. Check-In: According to the owner football season is their "bread and butter" because of this one would assume the following: -Have a manager present/nearby if not so yourself to assist -Have the place prepped and ready for your guest's stay Unfortunately, there was a miss across the board for this owner. Due to the location not being ready upon arrival we do appreciate the initial feedback from the owner of "I want to make this right" As we viewed the previous guest's mess, all members of our particular party agreed that we needed to inquire about a refund as it just did not feel right (or clean) staying there. After some communication with the owner (who by the way was out of the country during their "bread and butter" season with no onsite/nearby managers), the owner had agreed a refund would be granted, after proof of golf cart keys, and house keys placed back with a photo sent to his phone. After this was completed, and other arrangements made, this is when communication really took a turn. I inquired about the refund and the owner let me know that after discussing the situation with other owners, he would only allow a credit for future bookings and no refund would be applied. When I followed up by asking why this was mentioned to one of the guests the owner advised that was never said. Upon Letting them know I have the screenshot of the text and the photo sent confirming keys had been placed back I was then followed up with "Never told "guest" that. Told him I would compensate him for dinner while the boat was being prepared" Again, I have the screenshot of the text from the owner to one of my guests mentioning "Refund will be made once I can confirm the door keys and golf cart keys have been returned" As I politely challenged the owner on this communication I was then followed up with "Bottom line I will refund the first night and offer a credit for a future stay" Mind you we had already now booked a new clean and ready boat. I again want to recognize the majority of reviews are good, my experience has just been brutal to say the least. Unlikely you would receive the same service given, but important to know it's possible.

We had such a wonderful time on the boat. We have been coming to watch Tennessee and Alabama for over 20 years in Knoxville and have stayed just about everywhere. I can honestly say there is no better place to stay than the Moonlight Madness! On our way home, I believe there was more conversation about our stay than the game. Our experience on the boat helped to ease the pain of a last-minute field goal by Tennessee to win the game. We will be back Tennessee, and we will stay on the Midnight Madness!
