Rusty ambience
Love the feel of rusty ambience inside. Very comfortable and the marina is beautiful. Can’t get any better than being on the water.

Poor 2.0
Completely disappointed
- The parking lot was not fenced as listed.   - The boat was dirty upon arrival, including toilet, shower, kitchen and floor  - Part of the railing was broken and laying on the outside deck of the boat with sharp pieces and screws all around it.   - The door does not lock from the inside of the boat.  - The boat did not contain a queen, sofa bed and bunk beds as described.  A queen and futon was present and what looked like a circle chair cushion on the ground with a sheet on it.   - The kitchen did not have a stove top as listed.  (We brought food thinking we could enjoy with boat and cook and could not)  - The dorm room size fridge did not get very cold.  And the freezer did not work.  (And honestly it should be listed as small fridge in listing)  - There were no paper towels or dish soap.  If we needed to provide that it would of been nice to know  - The coffee maker was extremely dirty and took 20 minutes to brew a pot of coffee for "6 cups" - There was no TV, Satellite or Dvd player as listed  - The wifi should be listed as a hotspot not as free wifi so we knew what to expect  - You should also let your guests know up front before booking that it is "highly reccomended " to not "go number 2" on the boat.  Honestly how do expect people to only use the main office during business hours.   Overall we were extremely upset with the condition of the boathouse. We contacted the owners of the boat and they have yet to apologize, which is disappointing.

Something out the ordinary but worth it!
Great experience! My whole perspective of a relaxing night away from home has changed forever. I have to travel for work pretty often and I dont know that I will ever want to stay in a hotel again. Of course a houseboat is lacking in size and a few other creature comforts but you cant beat watching the sun come up and go down from the deck of the boat, the privacy, the nature all around you and best of all....the boat rocking you into a sleep you never want to wake up from!! So all in all well worth having a small bathroom and everything else. I still cooked delicious meals in the kitchen and kicked back on the deck for a relaxing drink after dinner every night. My wife and I will probably never spend a night in a hotel again if there are any options like this around. If you like the comforts of a hotel this may not be for you but for those looking for something new and different this is the way to go. Two thumbs up!
