I had read the one terrible review the Blue Ridge Marina had, but decided the positives would outweigh the negative. In addition that review was several years ago and things had to have changed simply based on that terrible review. However to my complete shock the almost identical story was happening before our eyes. After a wonderful day on the pontoon we were coming in to park the boat and 5-6 employees were waiting on the dock. I had originally thought no big deal that they are just waiting on the last boat to go home for the day, but before we had even tied up a manager was screaming about burn holes on the outer front of boat's carpet. Then asking who was smoking and we told him no one smokes. He then suggested we must of had candles on a boat, another wild accusation. To top it off no one was even on the front, he stated he knew it was fresh and we were going to pay. They were completely trying to bait us to collect on their $500 damage hold, they had quickly had us sign at check in . They knew exactly where to look and what side to pull us up on to make the trap. I immediately told them I had already seen their previous complaint and they were quick to back pedal out of their scam. It was a terrible end to such a great day on the lake. The only reason I am even telling the story is so it does not happen to someone else. I am sure to revisit this wonderful area again and just sad that we won't be able to rent a boat on this fun lake.
