As we come into the home stretch of the 2021 summer season, the staff at the Marina wants to say “thank you” to all our patrons this year. We enjoy seeing the smiling faces on Lake Petit, whether it’s a child catching her first fish, a family on a pontoon boat outing, kids enjoying the new kayaks and paddleboards, or just a friendly gathering at a table overlooking the water.
Last year, a record number of patrons enjoyed being outside at the Marina and on the lake. The POA has invested in the Marina these last several months. From the fresh coat of paint to the rejuvenation of three bathrooms, from the acquisition of new watercraft to the relocation of docks combined with the upgrade to the electrical service, the improvements are everywhere.
Our goal is always to provide a fun, safe place for our property owners and guests. We also want to thank our summer help Elizabeth and Savannah — they were a big help to the oldest dock boys in North Georgia.
Reservation Policy Change
Each year, the Marina looks at its policies and procedures to see if changes would help better serve the Big Canoe community. To that end, effective Sept. 1, visitors to Big Canoe will be able to call the Marina up to 30 days in advance to reserve a pontoon boat or other watercraft. Property owners can continue to make reservations online or via phone up to 90 days in advance. Even though guests typically make up less than 25 percent of Marina reservations, we want to continue to give Big Canoe property owners the benefit when making watercraft reservations. Info: (706) 268-3303.
