Rumble / World TravelHales Bar Marina & Resort is the perfect play for a weekend getaway. Not only will you get to enjoy the stunning sunsets over Nickajack Lake, but you get to stay in your very own floating cabin. The picturesque resort is less than half an hour from Chattanooga and two hours from Nashville. Once you see photos you'll agree it's definitely worth the visit.

This marina and resort in Guild, Tennessee has cabins that are actually floating on the sparkling waters of the lake. You can choose between one, two, and three-bedroom options, all ranging in price from $99 to $275 depending on your size of cabin and time of year you plan on visiting. If sleeping on the water really isn't for you, don't worry. There are cabins on the land that still offer lovely views of the water.

Hales Bar Marina and Resort is located where the Hales Bar Dam used to be. The dam was completed in 1913 along the Tennessee River but ceased operations in 1967. Due to the number of deaths during construction, the abandoned dam is considered the most haunted location in the entire state of Tennessee as well as one of the most well known in the country. Paranormal investigators frequently visit the area and it's even been featured on numerous tv shows including Ghost Hunters.

The good news is, campers shouldn't have to worry about seeing any ghosts since all of the cabins were constructed especially for the resort. You can hit the water from a safe distance before making your way back to your floating cabin. There is also an RV Park if you want to bring your own camper instead of renting a cabin. The nightly rate for waterfront views is $45. There is a mini-golf course on-site as well as a swimming pool in case you need a break from the lake water.
