Fontana Lake is a TVA managed lake and the water level fluctuates throughout the year.

The pontoon boat and jet ski is available to rent during that timeframe only. Please see pontoon and jet ski rental rates below.
The lake level is lowered from November 1- April 15 which means the house dock is NOT FLOATING and the pontoon boat/jet ski/kayaks/paddle board are NOT AVAILABLE during that timeframe since they are in winter storage offsite. Guests can still access the water by walking off the concrete steps and walking down the shore bank during that timeframe.
