Mark and his wife Amy purchased Norris Dam Marina in March 2012 and purchased Twin Cove Resort and Marina in June 2013. Since the marinas have been purchased, both have undergone renovations. The marinas are both full-service with restaurants, rentals and everything you need to enjoy your time on the lake!
Mark and Amy’s son Brad manages both Norris Dam Marina and Twin Cove Marina. The family has owned a home on Norris Lake for nearly 30 years and they love being out on the lake and getting to interact with people who love the lake as much as they do. “We have loved getting to meet so many different people from all over the country and hear their different stories and why they love the lake,” says Mark Bardo. Brad adds, “Its been great getting to know so many individuals and hopefully build long-term relationships out of it”.
That’s what this father and son team is all about. it’s about family and making sure we establish a good, safe and fun environment for you and your families when you visit Norris Lake. “We offer a family-friendly environment and focus our business on keeping our customer’s happy,” says Brad.
