To all Fontana Village Resort & Marina guests, friends, and family: We wanted to let you all know that the recent Owners of Fontana Village Resort have decided to surrender their lease back to TVA as of June 1, 2020. This was a difficult decision to make, but due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic and the loss of a big part of the 2020 season, they have decided not to continue the lease on the property. TVA is actively looking at the future possibilities for Fontana Village Resort & Marina, but we currently do not have a planned opening date. There are a lot of details to work out between both businesses before any announcement can be made. We ask that you are patient with our staff as we work through the transition.
