I live in Minneapolis and would like to rent a boat to take out on a lake for a day in July. Does MeFi have a preferred boat rental establishment in the Twin Cities area?

Ideally I'd rent a pontoon for ~14 people, drink beer on the boat and do some swimming someplace scenic, and the less crowded the better.
I have never rented a pontoon before, am willing to spend $450 for boat rental and slip (if that's not included), I would rather do a day trip (ie. drive less than 2 hrs each way) and basically and aiming for a 'relaxing day with good company' vibe rather than '90s rap video' vibe.
I've done a few quick Google searches and heard that White Bear Lake is good, but I thought MeFi could yield a few more options.
Wisconsin is an option too.
