Where you’ll be

Cadillac, Michigan, United States

Lake Meauwataka is generally very quiet and peaceful, with occasional speed boats taking people tubing, wakeboarding, or skiing. More often there's pontoon boats, paddle boards, paddle boats, kayakers, and swimmers. We share the lake with our resident loon family! You'll hear them singing, or announcing when they see a bald eagle! Fishing, campfires, stargazing out on the lake, long walks, berry picking, walking distance to the National Forest, and more await you!

* We currently have a pontoon available to rent for $75 per day, plus gas, payable in cash to the host upon arrival. Take the boat out, swim and relax! Go out in the middle of the lake to watch the sunset. Stargaze late in the evening surrounded by the darkest of skies! The pontoon uses recreational gas, which normally averages approx. $1 more per gallon than regular gas. We will let you know how much gas you used, and charge you for the gas after your time with the boat. Most guests go through approx. 2 gallons per day.
*** No smoking of any kind allowed on the boat. (No smoking of any kind allowed on any of the boats, or raft, or anywhere on the premises.)
Driver must have current drivers license, and be at least 21 years old.
Boat must remain on this lake. Contact host for information.
