Deposits and cancellations

A Reservation Deposit of $750 per houseboat is required at the time the reservation is made.  The Reservation Deposit is applied toward your rental fee.  Written notice is required on all cancellations.  With cancellation 45 days or more prior to departure date, a $300 facilitating fee will be charged.  Cancellations received less than 45 days prior to departure are subject to forfeiture of total Reservation Deposit.  A Damage Deposit of $1,500 is required prior to boarding and will be refunded after the boat is inspected at the end of the rental period if the boat is returned in same condition as at check-out. This $1,500 will be reimbursed to you via check and can take anywhere from 5-7 business days. Sorry, no pets.  Gasoline is not included in rental fee.


Since 2014, we require that the Houseboat Renter who signs our Rental Contract must also leave the entire Damage Deposit.  We can no longer take more that one credit card for the deposit total.  The person who signs the Rental Contract should come prepared to have the $1,500 Damage Deposit put on their credit card or come with necessary cash.  Splitting the charge for the cost of the actual rental will still be possible.

Pick up time is 9:00 a.m. unless other arrangements have been made and approved prior to boarding. All individuals must be on-board when leaving dock. Lithia Springs Marina staff will pilot the party barge to the no wake buoys upon departure and back to the docks upon your return. Do not return to the docks. There will be a $20 shuttle service to the slow wake buoys for individuals in the party arriving late. Shuttle service available only during regular ship store hours.
