The Fishing Corner

Ranger Bass Boat Rental


When coming to the lake to fish, why drag a bass boat behind you when you can use ours? Rent our 16’ Ranger Bass boat, complete with 115 HP motor, trolling motor, life vests, maps and instructions. If you need a fishing license, just head 1 mile up the road to the local grocery. You can pick up live bait and the latest fishing tales there as well.  Set up your rental with us - here!

Lake Fun

Boating, tubing, and skiing

The perfect family lake outing includes a great family vessel. Rent our 22’ pontoon boat with 90HP motor for a half or whole day of fun. Add a 2-person tube to your rental, and see just how much fun you can pack into one day! Life vests, a lake map and instructions included in rental. If you are looking to do some water skiing or want a faster tubing experience, our 16’ Ranger Bass boat with its 115 HP motor will definitely provide the power you need.


SUP (Stand Up Paddle) Board Rentals:

Choose from our fleet of 12 Stand Up Paddle boards, perfect for a day of lake fun. We rent “real surfboards” made of fiberglass and epoxy, not plastic toys. In our diverse fleet we have boards for everyone from beginners to experts, and each rental comes with a state of the art carbon fiber or aluminum alloy paddle. We even have smaller boards and paddles for children. Our secluded cove with shoreline access makes for a perfect paddle.  Big fun for the whole family!

We are from Hawaii - we can certainly teach you! It is easier than it seems.




Paddle & Wine:

Want to get some exercise on the lake with a group of friends? Join us every Thursday at 6:30 pm (weather permitting) for an evening of paddling the lake and friendly dock-side socializing. Call ahead to reserve a board, or bring your own. After paddling, spend time relaxing on the dock with friends, eating potluck appetizers and enjoying your favorite BYOB beverage. Resort guests, neighboring guests, and local residents welcome!  Follow us on Facebook for updates on Paddle & Wine dates and other fun lake events!

Jet Skis


For the ultimate in fast lake fun, we rent a pair of Seadoo Spark 2-person watercraft. They carry 385 pounds maximum, for a furiously fast trip around the lake! Instruction, lake map and life jackets included in your rental. Please bring your boaters education certificate if you were born after January 1, 1986.




You can walk right into the clear, warm water from our shoreline or dive in off the swim dock. The kids will love the rope swing and slide, while you take fantastic photos of their bravery!



A Break from the Lake



David’s trail runs from the foot of our property around the edge of the lake to Red Bank (5 miles) in one direction, and all the way across the 101 bridge continuing for 17 miles on the far bank. It is a beautiful trail for hiking, running, or cycling. No motor vehicles allowed.


Mountain Bikes:


With David’s trail right at the edge of the property, you will want to take an afternoon to explore. Rent one of our 6 Trek mountain bikes to see the trail, or head off to Pigeon Creek for even more trail riding adventures. Rentals include helmets and instruction. Band-aids optional!




Looking for a quiet place to sit and read, bird watch or admire the view? Our gazebo sits at the edge of the field, and is the perfect spot for some quiet relaxation. It has hosted its share of marriage proposals and wedding vows as well!




We offer volleyball, badminton, horseshoes, other yard games, a swing set, a common fireplace perfect for s’mores and ping pong in a covered pavilion. Play against each other, or challenge the proprietor, if you dare!


Fire Pits:


In the cool of the evening, you can enjoy a bonfire down at the fire pit. Wood is stacked and ready for you, along with some primitive seats and even a few marshmallow cooking sticks.
