Want a unique experience with a view. Then lodge on one of our houseboats on the Upper Mississippi river! With the dockside lodging the houseboat stays at the dock. We do offer pontoon and fishing boat rentals for those that want to cruise and explore the Mississippi River. You will stay on a 4 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath houseboat. Our boats are fully furnished and include full kitchen facilities, gas grills, canopied top dock with a bar, stools and loungers. Your boat will also have a water slide for swimming fun. If you like to fish you can right off your boat. Like to bird watch? You are most certainly going to see bald eagles. Ever wonder what a fully loaded tow boat and barges look like and how they navigate the river. You can see them from your houseboat. You can stay in a boring hotel or ...Want a unique experience with a view. Then lodge on one of our houseboats on the Upper Mississippi river!

The S&S office is open daily from 8:00 AM- 5:00 PM. My goal when you check in is to give you complete privacy, but know that I am here if you need anything. We also rent pontoon boats and fishing boats if you would like to cruise the river.

How to get there
Lansing, IA is a very small town of 999 people so finding S&S is not a problem. We offer FREE parking for your vehicles. LaCrosse, WI is 35 miles from S&S. That would be your closet airport.
