Guests will have to have their own boat/kayak/canoe or use my canoe (30 minute paddle) to access boathouse to access this totally remodeled 265 sq ft solar powered boathouse which is located in a sheltered cove in the Stecoah Creek area directly on Fontana Lake. It is the perfect spot for fishing, boating, relaxing, ect. The boathouse can only be accessed by water. There is no walking to the boathouse since it is floating in the lake and is not at the end of a dock. Guests without boat or not wanting to use my canoe can call Fontana Marian at 828-498-2129 for rates for transportation to the boat house. Guests with their own canoe/kayak/boat can launch and park their vehicle (minimal fee) with gated/key access by contacting a local boat landing which is about 30 minutes canoe/kayak distance from the boat house. I will provide that number when the boat house is booked as it is a local private landing and not a commercial business.
Guests will need to bring their own sleeping bags/sheets/pillow cases/towels and 1 lb propane tank is they want to use the small portable grill as none of these are provided.
The boathouse is totally off the grid which means no cable television, no wifi, no phone, no AC, and probably no cell service.
The boathouse features a kitchen area with Italian granite tiled kitchen, and pebble tiled backsplash, under counter fridge/freezer and cooktop, bar seating for 4, French press, dinnerware and utensils, basic kitchen supplies, pots/pans, and paper towels/garbage bags. The boathouse had a 3 stage water filtration system for clean drinking water.
The living room area features a reclining loveseat couch, and 32" TV with blue ray player with approx. 50 DVD's.
The bedroom area has (2) full/double beds (1 of which is a bunk bed). Pillows are provided but guests will need to bring their own bedding/linens/towels/ect.
The bathroom features a 12 sq ft slate tiled shower, sink, and marine toilet with marine toilet paper provided.
The partially covered front deck area faces the lake and National Forest and has a picnic table, serving area, small portable grill (guests must provide their own 1 lb propane tanks/) and 2 reclining chairs.
There is a double kayak included with the rental when at the boathouse.
This rental is a unique property for guests that are adaptable to working with solar power, marine toilet, water pump, propane water heater and are able to provide their own and linens/towels and propane for grilling.
The boat house does not have a cleaning crew so guests will need to clean up after themselves and remove all garbage on departure. The boathouse is stocked with Marine toilet paper, paper towels, soap for washing dishes/hands/shampoo, and garbage bags. There are some spices/salt/pepper and basic kitchen supplies.
Pets are not allowed on the furniture or beds and guests are requested to refrain from allowing pets in the boathouse when wet.
Lake Fontana water levels vary during the year but the boat house is always floating.
