Our experience was not good. Although the lake itself is fantastic the Boat itself was a mess. Overall the boat was pretty beat on, nicks, dents, sliding doors constantly falling off track etc. In essence you are camping so I don't want to harp on the little things. To start one of our engines was much stronger than the other making it difficult to captain in slow traffic (backing out, pivoting in coves, avoiding obstacles). It was very warm at night and our AC kept blowing a fuse despite us following the instructions and even keeping the AC on low. Sleeping on a hot houseboat really sucks. Again, it's a it RV like camping but our boat was overrun by little ants and food would be covered with Ants if left out for more than an hour. We found this out first night an had to throw out most of our fruit and tomatoes. The BBQ grill would be covered with ants the next morning after grilling. We're not wussies by any stretch but the ant thing was rather gross and quite inconvenient. Finally, the employees that work at Bullfrog a mostly hard working kids but more than once we were urged to tip as we heard from two employees that they make like $8 and change per hour. Given the houseboat rental was literally thousands of dollars you would think Aramark could compensate their employees better. We did of course tip the hard working college kids but it felt forced and unpleasant. Overall, I would never use this company again for a Houseboat rental.
This was our first and LAST rental thru Aramark at Bullfrog Marina. We have rented houseboats from various places and have NEVER had the problems that we encountered here. There were three couples on our boat, 16-M; my daughter, son-in-law and grandsons were on 21-M. When using the swamp cooler, water leaked onto the decks and down the passageways and into the lower berth, soaking the bedding. My daughter's boat reeked for the first two days until they finally found rotten food in the very back under the sink. Mechanical problems necessitated calling for help on two occasions. The last time meant getting to the marina 24 hours early. The overall condition of the boats were POOR. I took the time to write a letter to Aramark Headquarters informing them of our unhappiness with their product. To date, not even a courtesy of a reply. Upon completing the on-line survey I requested that a representative contact me; silence. I don't get the impression Aramark is really interested in Good Customer Relations. My advice, save your money and use any other houseboat rental.
