Tired of staying in the same old stuffy boring hotel room? So were we, so we decided to own our own Houseboat on the Tennessee River, where we could walk to just about everything. The “Moonlight Madness” is docked in the peaceful Volunteer Landing Marina in Knoxville. The marina is steps away from award winning “Ruth’s Chris” steakhouse and Calhoun’s On the River. You can walk to both as well as the Neyland Greenway, James White Greenway, Neyland Stadium, Thompson-Boling arena, University of Tennessee and the vibrant Market Street in Downtown Knoxville. We can accommodate 6 people in beds and many more if you want to get creative. We have 2 bedrooms, one king size bed in the master and a Full bed in the crew quarters and a queen size pull out couch, along with 2 bathrooms. We feature 3 decks, one off the bow, one off the stern (great for morning coffee) and a 70' PARTY DECK on the roof. The party deck has abundant seating along with 2 flatscreen HD television and a gas grill and gas fire pit. The master also has a 40' Vizio UHD flatscreen with Smartcast. The salon also has a 50' UHD flatscreen. Our boat comes fully stocked with clean linens and towels. The galley also comes fully stocked with dishes, utensils and small appliances along with Hi-Speed internet. You will meet a lot of very nice people that reside at the marina full time. Also, we have a EZGO golf cart and 2 Kayaks and 2 beach cruiser bikes that are available for you to use while at our boat. Sorry but the Houseboat doesn't leave the marina because of the river current. We also have a full-time Marina Manager on site should you need anything or have any questions with our boats. We want your stay with us to be a memorable one, and will make every attempt to make you want to come back.

About Alfons Reinig
Our daughter plays soccer for the University of Tennessee. We make several trips out to cheer on the Volunteers. We love the Knoxville area and the Volunteer Landing Marina. This location is absolutely perfect. We can walk to everything from Downtown to Neyland stadium. Not to mention Ruths Crists Steakhouse, which is steps from our boat.
Alfons Reinig purchased this Boat in 2016
Why Alfons Reinig chose Knoxville
We wanted something other than a boring hotel room or a small stuffy condo. The boat is awesome with the newly renovated interior and huge party decks. We can kayak off the back of the boat and paddle to Calhoun's on the river. Houseboat living is unique and charming. This boat has never been smoked on or in.
What makes this Boat unique
Water access, great location and very safe and secured marina with onsite staff. Full time on-site Marina Manager to assist you with anything you need. Secured and gated docks.

Fantastic , must do rental!
Every step of this rental was fabulous. Al is an incredible host. The houseboat is roomy and clean. Decor is fun. The marina is beautiful, restaurants were good. Downtown is lively and fun. I went in November and it was fantastic. The cool weather was perfect for walking. The sun shines on the back deck making it lovely sitting outside. Highly recommend the Moonlight Madness .
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and hope to have you back next year.
Super fun. Everything u need and close to downtown and bike path.
We were in town for a business trip and this was the perfect compliment to the trip. Great place to relax and close to downtown. We will definitely stay again.
All the comforts of home
We had a great time on the houseboat with all the comforts of home in a very unique setting. I highly recommend staying here and exploring Knoxville. We were in the city for the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame inductions and close to all of the action, while also having the quiet setting of being on the river. Thanks for a great experience.
We had a great weekend on Moonlight Madness. Wonderful location to so many things to do downtown. We enjoyed the fire pit on top while watching the Regional Sotball Play offs. The kids loved watching the boats and barges go by.
Thank you Al for a wonderful weekend.
Fabulously fun weekend!
We had a fabulous weekend on the houseboat. We were very comfortable and everything is provided. We sat out on the lower deck each morning drinking our coffee and watching the UT Girls’ Rowing Tram go back and forth on the river.
We’re so happy you enjoyed your stay and invite you back next year.
A totally enjoyable experience !!
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us and hope you would consider staying with us again. Im sorry about the flat tire on the golf cart and the inconvenience it may have caused. We have replaced the damaged tire and are back to fully operational.
