Does anyone know what is up with Holly Bay Marina? I was down there over the weekend and their docks are horrible.. Looks like they have done some remodeling on the inside of the marina, which looks really good, but why not take that money and work on their docks? I don't see why the slip renters pay what they do to be docked down there...

I totally agree. Their docks have gotten worse over the past couple of years. Grove's docks are alot better but their employees are not so friendly. The only thing Holly Bay has goin for them is that beautiful, tall, brunette that works behind the counter that seems she does all the work around there.. Does anyone know who I am talking about and if she's single???:)

It is a shame! Such a beautiful place and what they have let it turn out to be! I agree, Grove is taken much better care of.

If they are owned by the same person then why spend more money on one instead of both? You think that they would want both marinas to do good instead of just one. It's sad... I enjoy going to Holly Bay. We have family that dock their boats there. Not sure if we will go this year due to the dock situation, I don't want to put my children in harms way.

Holly Bay + Grove Marina suck. If you want to see a real marina go over to State Dock Lake Cumb. Holly Bay sucks and there's no need for them to improve their crappy docks or clean their nasty rental boats + bathrooms b/c people keep going there.

Where do I start about Holly Bay? It has really went to HELL! I don't know if it's a marina or a day care. You got all these kids/employees there who are either spending their time setting around smoking or running around like dogs in heat after each other. Bags of garbage setting around that you have to walk through or around, and the smell, Geez. No lights on runways so you can't see the rats in the garbage. Who is the manager there, the kids or who??

We have a houseboat at Lee's Ford on Lake Cumberland, and really like it. The Marina is nice and everything is always clean. It can be a little tough to get a parking spot sometimes, but if you have to park at the top of the hill, they have a shuttle that will pick you up and take you to the dock.

also, just because the docking isn't new or as nice as grove's doesn't automatically mean someone will get hurt. when was the last major accident reported from holly bay that involved injury caused by the docking being inadequate?? seriously people...old and a little run down maybe, but not dangerous...
