If you are looking for a quiet place to take your family or significant other, a house boat rental vacation might be just the vacation for you. Located near many of the larger lakes in the United States, house boat rentals offer all of the quiet relaxing seclusion of camping with a few more amenities. In addition, for those who love fishing, you can now do it without ever leaving your rental home.
There are many different house boat rental vacations to suit all of your relaxation needs. Depending on the location of the lake you choose, there are many different features availability to you. If you chose a lake that has a resort on it that rents house boats, there will more likely also be organized events and features at the main resort place. However, you are under no obligation to attend and, in fact, can move your house boat rental away further down the lake from the main resort in order to achieve as much privacy as you would like, and to hunt the best fishing spot. However, if you rent from a house boat owner, you are completely on your own to entertain yourself.
In addition to the location differences, there are also differences in the layouts and sizes of the house boats. All boats come with some standard features such as a kitchen with a refrigerator, freezer, stove, oven, cooking utensils, and dishes, a bathroom, cabin area with screened windows and doors, AM/FM cassette stereos, cabin heaters, electric and gas lights, blankets and pillows, a navigational map, a deck area with chairs and a table, barbeque grill, ice chest, life jackets, swim ladders, and upper sundeck. Many boats, but not all, also come with a slide from the upper sundeck into the lake. If the vacation is just for two of you, the smallest boat available is a thirty foot boat that sleeps two. This boat is great for honeymoons and weekend getaways. It is also the cheapest to rent. The thirty five foot boat can sleep three to four people and is perfect for small families or small groups of fishermen. The forty foot boat can sleep six to eight people and is great for larger families and groups of fishermen.
