Houseboat Vacation Rental

It may sound a little out of the ordinary, but reserving a houseboat as a vacation rental can be a great choice for a unique, relaxing vacation. Think about it - you're on a floating hotel room with no traffic, no stress, no getting lost, incredible scenery, and if you want, you can bring any number of your closest friends to enjoy it all with you.

Where Can I Rent a Houseboat?
The real question is where can't you rent a house boat? If you do a little snooping, there's house boat vacation rentals all over the country from Washington to Tennessee, from large lakes to the Mississippi River. And don't worry about boating experience - you'll learn before you embark on your voyage. It's not complicated. If you can drive a car, you can pilot a houseboat.

What's a houseboat like?
Again, it's a like a luxury hotel on the water. They have full kitchens, grills on the deck, bedrooms, living rooms, bathrooms, and more. The living quarters are air conditioned and very comfortable. Some even have hot tubs and water slides! Take along you friends and family and you might just get hooked. It's a vacation rental like no other.

So think it over. There's hundreds of lakes and rivers in the United States where you can rent a house boat for a vacation you won't soon forget. I'll leave you with a quote from Boating Life Magazine:

"With its odd rock formations as high as 300 feet above the water surface, and depths plummeting to 200 feet, Lake Powell takes on an unearthly appearance. I've never seen blue like that, contrasting against cigar-shaped pillars and red rock walls 300 feet above the water's surface. From our perch the only evidence of the modern world was the boat, a literal speck on the scene. Though the boat seemed insignificant in the overall scope, without it we couldn't have gotten anywhere near this vantage point - like a small spaceship in the vastness of the universe."
