The S.S. Lillypad II entered the waters of Lake Wawasee in the Summer of 2006. It was purchased in January of 2014 by Doug Shoemaker from original owners Bob and Karen Fawcett.  The two story, 110-passenger houseboat has all the amenities to make your voyage on Lake Wawasee one to remember.  Its 70 feet in length makes it the largest vessel on Lake Wawasee.

The upper level can seat up to 65 with room for more to stand and experience the true outdoor setting offered on the Lillypad.  It also features a second bar station and plenty of room for social gathering, a dj or band and much more. 

Our visitors have hosted weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, graduation celebrations, engagement parties, countlessl reunions, along with corporate retreats and gatherings. We can host nearly any occasion on the boat.

In order to accomodate as many passengers in the short summer months, we ask that all Saturday cruises start out at a 50-person minimum.
