Overview

About the property

1100 sq ft houseboat sleeps 8 best views on the lake

This houseboat is truly one of a kind. If you have been on a typical houseboat before this is nothing like it. This amazing house is full size with livable space being 24 feet wide and 50 feet long. The main room has a full size kitchen with a large center island and all appliances. The living room has a large sectional couch and both a wood burning fireplace. It is completed by a 55" LCD smart TV with Directv and surrounded by breathtaking views of the lake and mountains. Directly behind the living room area in the same room is a very sturdy log bunk bed and as well as a log daybed that can transform into a king bed or two twins. The master bedroom has brand new carpet and its own private entrance. The bedroom is complete with a queen bed, closet, dresser, and a 27" flatscreen. The houseboat has a large bathroom that also has another entrance to the outside. It has a nice size vanity with full length mirror, toilet, and large jetted bathtub(I am hoping to replace this with a nice stone shower by summer). The is also 3 electric heaters throughout the houseboat. On the outside of the living space is a 3 and a half foot walkway that circles the entire houseboat. Down a few steps from that walkway is a long dock for the boats about 65 feet long. The roof of the houseboat has a new 400 square foot composite deck with a railing. The roof top deck has a waterside and an opening for the thrill seekers to jump off into the water. The houseboat has a large generator that runs everything and also has solar panels that can run some systems. This houseboat is secured tightly to pilings in open water and can not be moved by the renter.

Wonderful unique get-a-way.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this amazing houseboat for our office party and then spent a few days relaxing. It was great for the party with boating, water slide, kayaks, fishing, and sunning. It is so restful and sleeping on it was terrific. It is quiet and has beautiful views. The inside of the boat is like a house complete with a bedroom and large living area. You can fish right from the front deck and the views from the roof deck were gorgeous. I would recommend this for anyone wanting a lake stay and a very unique experience. The boat had everything we needed from a full kitchen to beach towels. Ben was wonderful if we needed anything.

A terrific way to enjoy a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The houseboat was much bigger than we had anticipated, which resulted in my wife not getting motion sickness (she usually does on boats but we took the gamble because we love staying near the water). The houseboat had everything we needed and provided us a great place to simply relax and enjoy the beautiful setting. Would highly recommend it to groups and families alike as the open layout allows for everyone to gather in one place.

We have no reservations about this property or the owner. He was great to work with and quickly responded to our questions.

Thanks for a great memory! We hope to make it back before long... and use the slide again!

Delightful setting for gathering and visiting with family and friends

  • 4 of 5

Nice big space

Have to be ready to do things like pump gas into the generator, ferry out everything. No washing machine use (not a big deal).

Pleasant and accomadating host with a great attitude.

Sam & the Lake Break Crew

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have found a better place to hang out on the lake! The way Ben brought us in and welcomed us to his house boat honestly made us feel like we owned the entire lake. Not to mention how great Ben was to save our butts when our boat broke down all the way in Big Fork. The house boat is one of a kind and we already have plans to make it happen again summer 2017!

Unique, memorable experience!

  • 5 of 5

Wow - my family and I so enjoyed this unique experience! So private, comfortably equipped with everything we needed. Our 10 year old loved the slide into the lake. The manager took care of our every need. This was truly so much fun and I recommend this houseboat experience to everyone - of all ages!

This is a Houseboat it is not docked it is in open water and will require a boat to get to and from. If you have a boat then you are set and this is perfect for you. I have a home on the lake that you would be allowed to park your boat trailer and a dock to shuttle from. If you do not have a boat I will be able to shuttle you and supplies to and from the boat or will possibly have a small boat or kayaks for you to get yourself to and from the houseboat.
