Our first time on a houseboat and something that we'll definitely do again. The Timber Bay staff was very helpful and operation of the boat was simple. Check in was quick and we were on the water in less than an hour. We had the 38' boat and it had plenty of room for the four of us. We chose a different campsite every night. Every mid day we'd anchor in deep water and spend the afternoon swimming, using the slide, and sunning on the upper deck. Evenings were spent fishing and sitting around the campfire. It was so incredibly peaceful and quiet. When we did see others it was usually other houseboats. At night it felt like we had the whole lake to ourselves.Timber Bay is a first class operation and we'd highly recommend them.
