Where to Go

Destinations like Lake Tahoe in California and Nevada boast stunning alpine scenery, crystal-clear waters, and numerous boathouse rentals offering easy access to water-based activities such as boating, fishing, and paddleboarding. On the East Coast, destinations like the Florida Keys and the Chesapeake Bay offer tropical vibes and abundant marine life, making them ideal for boating enthusiasts and nature lovers. In Canada, regions such as the Muskoka Lakes in Ontario and the Gulf Islands in British Columbia offer serene landscapes dotted with charming boathouse rentals, providing guests with a quintessential Canadian cottage experience surrounded by pristine lakes and majestic forests.


icon Boathouse Type

Traditional boathouses are often standalone structures built directly over the water, providing a cozy, rustic atmosphere with stunning waterfront views. They typically offer amenities like decks or balconies for enjoying the scenery. On the other hand, houseboats are floating accommodations allowing guests to live on the water, offering a truly immersive experience.

icon Location

The best places to stay in a houseboat are serene lakes nestled amidst lush forests, where the tranquility of nature surrounds you. Additionally, meandering rivers with picturesque landscapes provide an idyllic setting for a houseboat getaway, offering a unique blend of relaxation and exploration.

When to Go

The best time of year to book a stay in a boathouse on a lake largely depends on personal preferences and the desired experience. Generally, the summer months are the most popular for boathouse rentals due to the warmer weather and longer daylight hours, offering ample opportunities for water-based activities and outdoor adventures. However, each season brings its unique charm and attractions, making boathouse stays appealing throughout the year.

Plan Your Cabin Adventure

icon Spring

Spring heralds the awakening of nature around lakes in the USA and Canada, making it an ideal time for a boathouse stay. With temperatures rising and foliage returning, guests can enjoy the tranquility of the lake amidst vibrant greenery. Spring offers opportunities for activities like fishing, birdwatching, and leisurely outdoor relaxation, with fewer crowds enhancing the experience.

icon Summer

Summer is the peak season for boathouse rentals, offering warm temperatures and sunny days perfect for lakefront adventures. From swimming and water sports to grilling on the deck and enjoying bonfires under the stars, guests can create cherished memories against shimmering waters and scenic vistas with family and friends.

icon Autumn

As summer fades into fall, the landscape surrounding lakes transforms into a breathtaking display of autumn colors. With crisp air and fewer tourists, fall is an enchanting time for a boathouse stay, ideal for peaceful retreats and scenic nature walks along the shoreline. Guests can immerse themselves in the beauty of fall foliage reflected in the water and enjoy activities like leaf-peeping cruises and fishing for seasonal catches.

icon Winter

While unconventional, winter offers a unique and magical experience for boathouse stays. In regions where lakes freeze over, guests can enjoy activities like ice fishing and snowshoeing amidst snow-covered landscapes. The serene beauty of a frozen lake, framed by snow-dusted trees, provides a peaceful setting for reflection and relaxation, with the possibility of witnessing the Northern Lights add a touch of wonder to the experience.
