About the property

Come enjoy a classic stayaboard houseboat on the Mississippi River.

The houseboat has a new kitchen, living room, dining area, bathroom, and sleeping area. Beautiful hardwood floors and wood paneling lend a warmth to the interior. The large deck above lets guest enjoy river views. Enjoy a peaceful idyll on the Mississippi River. Only minutes to the restaurants and entertainment of downtown St. Paul, yet a great getaway.

1949 Gordy

  • 4 of 5

Overall it was a very nice stay. The only reason it did not get 5 stars was the noisy air conditioner. Very relaxing on both decks with coffee and drinks. Great hiking areas!!!

Lovely retreat

  • 5 of 5

The houseboat was a perfect place to celebrate our 10th anniversary. It was serene and peaceful, yet just a short drive to shops and restaurants. The houseboat charm was exactly what we were looking for to unwind.

For those not familiar with houseboats, be prepared for a marine toilet and small shower. Neither were an issue but could be surprising for some.
