Norris Lake Houseboat Rentals was co-founded in 2004 by Bryan Courtney and Ryan Taylor. Their goal was to offer modern houseboats in a typically outdate rental market. With amenities rarely seen on rental houseboats the inaugural season of NLHB was a huge success filled with many happy customers. After the 2005 season, Ryan Taylor departed NLHB for a successful career in the financial industry. The business expanded to multiple classes of houseboats, at one point offering the largest fleet in East Tennessee. A decade later, in 2014 NLHB began exclusively renting the Presidential Houseboat series. This reduced their fleet, maintaining only the most exclusive boats. Returning NLHB to their original mission of offering nothing but the best.
