BEAUTIFULLY RENOVATED HOUSEBOAT on Tennessee River (**Boat cannot be moved**)

Lakefront Knoxville houseboat in Downtown Knoxville, near University of Tennessee
This 1984 50’ Jamestowner has undergone a complete renovation! You’ll enjoy the rustic beams on the ceiling while enjoying brand new furniture, all new appliances, new kitchen & comfortable bedding.
I fell in love with this boat when first I saw it and knew with a little love and TLC it could be restored to new life! I know you will have fond memories of this very unique stay in beautiful East Tennessee! The boat is located at Volunteer Landing Marina. Downtown Knoxville and the beautiful Volunteer Landing are a short walk away.
Please note that the boat must stay at the marina and attached to the slip. I will provide a golf cart for your use during your stay for transporting your belongings. It is shared between my other houseboat rentals. Please be considerate and not keep it out for extended periods of time and do not leave it in the parking lot. I will meet you for check-in and go over basic systems of the boat and will leave you to your privacy, but I'm only a text or call away in case you need anything.

***This may not be suitable for young children due to proximity of water.

Responsible pet owners are are welcome to bring pets but only with prior approval and fee applies based on type of pet(s) and length of stay. Pets are permitted only with prior approval and a fee applies which may vary but is typically $15/pet per day depending on size/breed and length of stay. They must be under a flea control regimen, not permitted on furniture/bedding, and not left while owners are out unless crated and non barking. Thank you for your cooperation so the accommodation is pleasant for future guests and those in boats nearby.

***Tennessee Volunteers home football gameday weekends require a 3 night minimum stay***

**Absolutely NO parties or loud outdoor music is permitted and additional visitors must get host approval to maintain the security of the marina. Quiet hours are 10pm-7am. I take the marina requirements very seriously and guests may be asked to vacate with no refund if I receive a complaint. It is a family oriented facility and being able to rent my houseboat here is a privilege. Thank you for making it a pleasant location for all marina patrons!

Such a cool place!
Such a cute little place :) There were just 2 of us friends and we loved our stay. Anyone over 6ft might need to be careful they don't hit their head walking around (but that was not a problem for us!) Angie was communicable, but just the right amount :) Would definitely stay again.

Great location - unique experience
If your looking for a unique experience with all the bells and whistles, this is the place! Beautifully decorated with all the comforts of home and the attention to detail you would find at a 5 star hotel. Angie made sure we had everything we needed for a stress free weekend.

Great experience
This was our first time to stay on a houseboat and I want to do it again and again! We stayed 3 nights and this place cannot be beat. We enjoyed the front and back decks to enjoy coffee and to end the day enjoying the views. I was so surprised how quiet it was! So close to downtown but no noise! We enjoyed walking to dinners at Calhoun and Ruth’s Chris and Namas downtown. Angie is the best host as she made sure we had everything we needed. She picked us up at our vehicle and brought our luggage to the boat. Then we were able to use the golf cart to pack up. The bed was super comfortable and the boat was super clean. Loved the coffee maker as it brews kerig and/or regular brew. Would love to come back and stay right here!

Angie was a delightful and helpful hostess!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The boat is conveniently located to access to all places we were interested in during our 2 day stay. The only down side was the size of the bed. (We’re used to a king sized.) Because it’s a smaller boat, a larger bed size would not be possible. My husband is now ready to live on a houseboat!!

Wonderful option for your visit!
Angie is a wonderful host and the houseboat is just as described. We were in town for a family wedding and this was a perfect option for our stay. She has used the space wisely and we had plenty of room. We took advantage of the kayaks, enjoyed a little fishing, and took the free trolley to the farmers market. Angie was quick to respond with any questions and was a pleasure to talk to. Highly recommend booking one of her won't be disappointed!
