Pontoon and Wolf River Questions
How deep is the river around your place for boating purposes?
The river in August can range from 3 - 4 feet where the boat will be docked to 9-12ft going across from my
banks to the other side. AS so you travel down river it will range from 9- 33 ft with a few areas that could be
back down to 3, which are ''no wake '' zones.
How large a boat can we bring?
Up to 25 ft with inboard motor.
What kind of water access we will have? Will it be confined to one lake?
You can travel down river all the way to Oshkosh, hitting three different lakes (Winnebago, Winneconne, Butte
de Morts) The river is really pretty to travel with a lot of wildlife, desolate areas, a few beaches, also places to
stop for gas and food, and it winds around a lot of bends which makes it even more interesting. Also, the fishing
is great. There is occasional water skiing, tubing, jet-skiing going on as well.
Could a person get to Lake Winnebago in a timely manner?
Plan on an-all day trip to get to Winnebago and back including a stop for gas/lunch.
Do you rent the pontoon in hour or two hour increments?
Only in ½ day or 1 day increments.
For the 1/2 day rentals, how does the timing work? Is it for specified time periods (8-12, 12-4) or can
it be rented from 10-2?
Usually it is completely flexible, as most of the time it is only rented out to one party on any given day.
However, if two parties want it on the same day, then I coordinate with both parties on what will work best for all.
Does the pontoon have a top for sun protection?
Are life preservers provided?
Yes, 8 people total including any combination of adults and children.
What is the horsepower of the pontoon?
50 HP Mercury
Does the boat come with one or two tanks? How much running time with such?
It will be filled with gas and you must return it with full tanks of gas. You can get the gas from the Waters
restaurant just down from us, just by pulling the boat up to their dock. We have a guideline document that
helps you in the operation of the pontoon.
Are any other boats available for rent other than the pontoon boat? Do you have a fishing boat that
is available for our use?
Only the pontoon. We are the only location in New London renting a pontoon.
Is renting the boat is separate from the cabin? Do you pay for both at the same time?
It is handled separately. You can pay either at the same time or individually.
How do you handle rain dates?
If its raining prior to you leaving, we reschedule to another (nice) day while you are here. If you are already out
in the pontoon and it starts raining, you must return for safety reasons (no refund).
Vacation Home Rental Questions
Is the rental on Hwy. X?
Yes. Google and other online map programs have trouble with our specific location. The map on our website
will get you within 3 blocks of our specific location.
What are the check-in / check-out times?
Check in time 3PM. Check out 11AM. We are flexible in many situations, call if you anticipate a conflict.
The description for the vacation rental says 2+1 bedrooms. What exactly does that mean? How are
the sleeping arrangements for 10 people?
It has a master bedroom with a queen size bed, a smaller bedroom on ''the river side'' with three single beds,
two queen size hide-a-beds that sleep two each, and two love seats that people crash for the night. One hide-a-
bed is located in the living room, the other is in a sitting room.
Can we swim right by the house, or, is there somewhere nearby the house where can swim?
You can swim nearby. There are sand bars down river where people also get out and swim.
Are there any running/hiking trails nearby?
There is Hatton Park one half mile away and also trails along the river.
We’re looking for a quiet, peaceful place for some family time. Don’t want to be next door to wild or
noisy parties, etc. Other than the rentals, what else is around the property? Other homes?
The rental is fenced off from one neighboring property. The rental is 100+ feet from the edge of Hwy X. The
nearest neighbors are friendly and are not loud or obnoxious by any means!
What amenities are included?
We do supply linen, bedding, and towels. We do not supply paper toweling, toilet paper, napkins, or garbage
