Captain a Houseboat

By Explore Minnesota

houseboats-fullsize.jpgAfter a great day on the lake, do you ever think: “I don’t want to get off the water!”  When you vacation aboard a houseboat, you don’t have to. You take the comforts of home along on your voyage, and can cruise for days. A unique summer getaway, a houseboat adventure touts a floating bungalow, with ultimate freedom to explore the waters and wilderness.

Houseboat rental vacations are offered on beautiful northern Minnesota waters, including Voyageurs National Park, Birch Lake, Leech Lake and Lake Vermillion. Fill your vacation days with swimming, fishing, canoeing, hiking, and watching for wildlife. Or, just kick back, relax, and float along.

Houseboats vary in size and amenities, accommodating up to 12. A standard houseboat includes a tow-a-long fishing boat, electricity, furnished galley, grill, a swim slide, and of course, novice “captain” lessons. A list of Minnesota houseboat operations is available in our Places to Stay section.
