Each houseboat includes a tow-behind fishing boat. Since a boat and motor are required with each houseboat rental, you may either bring a boat/motor or rent one from us. As a courtesy to our customers, each Monday and Friday we make a lake run and deliver items ordered, directly to your houseboat.

Houseboat Information

  • The houseboat appliances (hot water heater, refrigerator / freezer / stove / oven / lights / space heater) all run on L.P. gas. This eliminates the need for a generator.
  • There is no need for 120 volt outlets on the houseboat because everything is either LP or 12 volt. There is a 2-wire 12 volt receptacle and USB Port next to the helm of each boat. The 12 volt system is continuously re-charged by solar power. We do however offer 2500 watt Rental Generators for the fishermen to recharge their trolling motor batteries. You are welcome to bring your own generator. Generator operations must be carried out on shore.
  • Remember to either reserve your linen packs two weeks in advance or bring your own sheets, sleeping bags and bath towels.
  • All dogs must be on a leash at all times while at Northernaire Houseboats' base. If your dog will be traveling with you, it is required you bring a pet carrier. There is a pet fee and you will be charged for any damage caused.
  • If you have a C Pap machine just bring along an Inverter and we will furnish a Deep Cycle Battery for your sleeping needs.

First Day Check-In (12:00 pm - 2:00 pm)
