“Use these guys every year and every year is better than the last! Great customer service, clean boats…what more could you ask for?!”

“Best houseboats on Norris. Can’t go wrong with renting a houseboat from NLHB.”
Mary Worline

“Have been renting from Bryan and the gang for years and so appreciate their help, support and focus on making our vacations wonderful. The new boats are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! They have dual motors and dual generators….I cannot tell you how many times that in other rentals, where either a motor died (had one situation where motor quit while underway and had to have our ski boat grab it before nearly drifting into the shore) or the generator died (during dinner and had to wait hours for someone to come out and save the day)….such, such a pain. Having newer boats is great….having additional backup, EVEN BETTER! Aside from the functional stuff, the design on the boats is great and well laid out. No more grinders (gravity drop heads), LOTS of storage, new hot tubs, beautiful interiors….and the underwater lighting on the boat adds to the cool factor. Best value on the lake for HB rentals!”

“It’s been 8 years now that we have rented a houseboat (usually 2!) through Bryan and his crew at NLHB rentals and the experience every year is amazing! Their new Presidential boats are phenomenal!! If you are looking to be treated like family on your trip with the best boats Norris Lake has to offer, look no further. Lake Norris Houseboat Rentals is without a doubt the best on the lake!!”

“Thanks so much Bryan for making our first vacation to Norris Lake a great time! We can’t wait to go back next year!”

“Rented a presidential series houseboat last summer. We had a wonderful time. The boat was nicer than other houseboats we’ve seen. We had plenty of room. The kitchen was well equipped. The underwater lights were an awesome bonus. We added a paddleboard and enjoyed exploring the cove we stayed in. They made us feel like family at Shanghai and Norris Lake Houseboats. Looking forward to our next trip!”
Claudia Reynolds Bolinger

“Absolutely the best boats on Norris. The greatest setting and water around. NLHB has set up the ultimate environment for anyone looking for the perfect Norris experience.”
Scott Marklin

“I wish I could give NLHB more than 5 stars. A group (12 of us) rented a houseboat from NLHB and it was not only clean, ready and all fueled for us, but it was ready early. The staff couldn’t of been nicer and more helpful. The houseboat was perfect, it slept 12 of us easily and all the accommodations from the AC, grill, hot tub, slide, bar, lighting to the kitchen that was fully stocked with dishes, glassware, pots and pans, etc not a thing was not there for us. Norris Lake was more than we could of ever wished for. Bryan the manager went above and beyond with his help, professionalism and had genuine caring for us to have a great time. I couldn’t recommend them enough and if you are looking for an unbelievable vacation for friends or family this is it.”
