Clearwater Cove Norris Lake Background

Mr. Russell Shelby of Shelby Industries started Rainbow Richlands Community & Marina in 1956. Shelby built the first marina, but the surrounding land was not developed until 2005 when it was purchased by the Villages of Norris Lake, LLC (VNL). VNL began clearing and selling lots and building some of the community’s infrastructure.

In 2009, Emerson Properties acquired all of the remaining unsold VNL property and the community name was changed to Clearwater Cove Norris Lake (CCNL). Over the next several years additional infrastructure, such as paved roads and underground utilities throughout Phases 1 and 3 of the community, were constructed. Also constructed were a state-of-the-art waste treatment plant, a private pavilion and swimming pool for CCNL owners and guests and a beautiful gated public marina with an easy access boat launch ramp to the lake.

Visitors to CCNL quickly recognize the well-preserved natural beauty of the woods and hills that comprise our peaceful gated community. Painstaking efforts have been taken by the CCNL HOA to continue to ensure that as our community grows the beauty that first prompted Mr. Shelby’s dream in 1959, and that has drawn so many of our owners to Clearwater Cove, continues to exist for years to come.
