Rock yourself to sleep with a gentle sway. Listen to a soundtrack of lapping waves, waterfowl, and creaking rope. Then wake up to enjoy a homecooked meal, a hot beverage on the porch, and sunbathing on the roof. Are you in a house? Or on a boat? You, fellow traveler, are on a house boat: once available primarily to grizzled skippers and sailors, but now ready to help couples, families, and friends bridge the gap between adventures on land and water.
If your daydreams take you to the edge of the water and then just a little bit further, then a houseboat is exactly what you’re looking for. Once that engine is rumbling, your houseboat will chug away, moving slowly out into the river current or the still waters of the bay. Stand out on the open deck, a cup of piping hot coffee in hand, and greet the sunrise as it turns the water around you a deep shade of golden-blue. There’s something innately soothing about being on the water, so relax and let the currents lull you into a state of perfect relaxation.
It sounds fantastic. It sounds expensive. Lucky for you, we’ve got a little something for everyone (and everyone’s budget). From streamlined, state-of-the-art beauties to leisure-cruising craft perfect for just tooting around the lake, we have a houseboat that fits the vacation you’ve dreamt up for yourself.
