About Randy & Paula Johnson

We are Randy & Paula Johnson. During the summer, we live on our floating house right next to our 2nd rental (listing#1133379) which is right next to this house. . We have been at Shanghai since 1995. We have owned our own business for over 30 yrs. The 2018 season will be our 5th summer for renting.

Randy & Paula Johnson purchased this house boat in 2013

Why Randy & Paula Johnson chose La Follette

This floating house docked in one of the nicest marinas on Norris Lake..... "Shanghai Resort & Marina". It's been completely renovated during the winter of 2013, so everything is new. Inside is approx 900 sq ft, which includes 2 bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen, full bathroom, as well as a living room with a full size fold out bed. Plenty of room for boats to park around this house, and the water is so nice to get in just to float and relax. Bring your boat or Shanghai Marina has pontoons, ski boats and PWC available to rent. They also offer a full service restaurant and bar with 15 beers on tap!

What makes this house boat unique

Nothing better than to wake up literally ON the water. Look out your windows to see water all around you. Plenty of outdoor seating as well as indoor seating. A/C keeps the house cool in the hot summer days, but we find floating in the clean clear water to be most relaxing way to spend a day.
