The Queen of Lake Freeman

At 135 feet long and weighing in at 300 tons, the Madam Carroll is the largest registered boat in the state of Indiana. The vessel has an operational capacity of 500 guests and a license to party. She was launched on Lake Freeman in Monticello, Indiana in August of 1976. The Madam is now open all year dock-side and cruises seasonally on a regular schedule May through November providing live entertainment, dinner cruises, and private charters on one of the Midwest’s most unique and historical vessels.

The Luse Lounge
