The TVFHA is working hard to help save all of our non-navigable and floating homes on all TVA Reservoirs and are working with the TVA to establish sensible regulations that are achievable, while also protecting the health, safety and welfare of all lake goers and the environment.  The TVFHA encourages all home owners to be good stewards of the lake resources.

Beyond saving the physical structures, we are also working to save a very unique way of life. Some floating homes have been in families for generations, while others are owned by people who are brand new to the lake life. There are many different opportunities and anyone can join the community whether it be by buying, vising, renting or just visiting the marinas. We challenge you to find a more welcoming community as the sense of camaraderie is like no other. It’s like stepping back in time where everyone knows their neighbors and everyone is willing to help each other out.

Floating homes actually make the lakes more accessible to everyone and not just the few who can afford pricey land. Floating Home rentals are a great way to expose to the general public to the TVA reservoir system, allowing them truly enjoy the resources, while also experiencing the lake like never before.   For those who are unfamiliar, these floating homes are located in marinas, pay mooring fees to be on the lake, slip fees for the boats, dine at the marina resturants and the owners as well as guests support the local economies. Most floating homeowners take great pride in their homes and comply with environmental regulations. See below for a glimpse of what the TVFHA is fighting for.
