This home was very nice and very clean although the information says this: "Bedrooms: 3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 12, Beds for 10-12", I would only suggest 8 people in this house. We had 12 people which it said it would accomodate and that they had a roll away and blow up matress but the only room for a roll away was in 1 bedroom that still would have been tight. We had to have 2 kids sleep on the couch in the living room.

The kitchen was well equipped and the covered dock was a plus. I would stay in this home again just with less people.

Was a good time.

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay. Upon arrival we found that the house had not been cleaned. Notified the marina and they sent 4 people who did the job very quickly. The house was great for the rest of our stay. The sewage holding tanks should be pumped before customers arrival. The only othr thing I would recommend is a small floating dock at the boat ramp. Was not crazy about having to beach my boat among all the rocks. I would do it again.

This is our second year coming to Norris Lake and each trip we have stayed at Captain Morgan's. It fits our bill perfectly and has great amenities for a floating home. We will be back!
