Holly Bluff has been an Award Winning Resort since 1996

Currently there are 6 timeshare boats at Holly Bluff Marina. Holly Bluff Marina is privately owned and manages these houseboats for Grand Lakefront Resort Club. GLRC exchanges with RCI. Contact GLRC or RCI direct to reserve.
Upon making your reservation, you will receive information about our marina and the houseboat you will be boarding. Listed below are additional fees you will incur upon check-in:

There is a $900 non refundable user fee for the boat for the week which includes orientation and captain’s lesson, sewage pump out, propane, inventory check and return inspection. This fee has become necessary in order to ensure the clubs viability for the future benefit of exchange users as well as club members.

GLRC carries insurance against general charter risks. Loss of inventory items and property of the Charterer, additional users and other parties are not covered by this insurance. Insurance maintained by GLRC does not absolve the Charterer for damage caused by the Charterer or those for whom the Charterer is responsible. The damage deposit is NOT insurance. The Charterer acknowledges and agrees that any and all damages incurred to the houseboat or any other houseboat and/or property, due to the Charterer’s negligence in operating the houseboat according to standards and procedures outlined during the orientation, are solely the Charterers responsibility. The Charterer further acknowledges and agrees that the Charterer is solely responsible for any costs or damages in excess of the damage deposit, including but not limited to, parts, labor and towing, that are incurred due to such negligence. The negligence of the Charterer will be determined at the sole discretion of the Marina.

At check in, charterer will be given the choice of Option #1 or Option #2 as described below.
Option #1: A damage deposit of $600.00 per houseboat will be paid at the time of check-in and will be held until the boat is returned and inspected for damages. If there is no damage, $500.00 will be returned to the Charterer.
Option #2: Charterer will be responsible for up to $1,500 in damages. Payment is due when boat is returned and has been inspected for damages.
You are welcome to stay overnight at Holly Bluff anytime during your stay. At our marina your boat will be plugged into shore power and water. There is a $10 per night charge for utilities for each night you stay at our dock.
