About Tasha Kesterson

We have been avid lake lovers for years and had dreams of purchasing a lake front house. The opportunity arose for us to purchase a floating building that had been a marina. We spent the majority of 2017 renovating the floating building into a vacation home. We hope that you enjoy Half Moon Harbor. It has been a labor of love!

Tasha Kesterson purchased this house in 2017

Why Tasha Kesterson chose Andersonville

Half Moon Harbor was once a marina. We purchased it in July 2017 with intent to renovate and turn it into a floating duplex. After a full 12 months of hard work we accomplished our goal and created a unique floating duplex on the beautiful Norris Lake that has all the comforts of home! We have met some wonderful people from all over the US that have created fond memories.

What makes this house unique

The only Floating Duplex house on Norris that is accessible by land and water. Huge Covered outdoor patio to enjoy lake views and outdoor dining rain or shine. Covered Boat slip right at your front door. Gorgeous sunsets. Perfect spot for fishing right off your own dock. Wake up to the lake being your front yard. On Saturday nights you can listen to the featured band right from your own patio. Paddle boat over to Stardust marina for ice cream or a burger!

Beautiful and Restful!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Half Moon Harbor Floating House. I took 5 girlfriends with me for my 30th birthday celebration. We're not the "roughing it" type so it was a nice surprise to see how beautiful decorated and comfortable the house was. The Stardust Marina is a convenient 10 minute walk (or 2 minute boat trip) away. The only downside (and it's super small and petty)is that the toilet is extremely loud so our group had a hard time sleeping through other folks midnight bathroom trips--would recommend earplugs or sleeping pills! That aside, the whole experience was wonderful. Tasha is helpful and easy to work with--would definitely stay again!

The life!

  • 5 of 5

We made the best family memories at this adorable floating house! It is conveniently located for offloading your luggage and the Stardust Marina is a super short paddle boat or kayaks ride away! The little house is roomie and decorated so cute! Our boys enjoyed the kayaks and trying to catch fish off the dock. The marina staff were so helpful, we rented a double pontoon with a slide one day and then a boat another day. They didn’t have tubes and pull ropes but directed us to another marina a short boat drive away. I would definitely stay here again, our boys didn’t want to leave!

Our family of 6 loved our stay at Half Moon Harbor. Every detail was well thought out when designing and decorating the house. It was very welcoming and comfortable! The kids enjoyed the variety of games and movies. The adults loved the outdoor seating and the ambience of the lake. Thank you for making our family vacation a wonderful experience! See ya’ll back real soon!
