Our newly renovated floating cabin features retro vibes and beautiful views of the Mississippi River backwaters.
This cabin sits DIRECTLY in the water and is available for rent year round. Enjoy the nature around you while sitting on your private floating deck, or snuggle up inside in front of the electric fireplace and Smart TV.
This cabin features 2 bedrooms with queen beds, and a trundle bed in the living room with 2 twin beds.
Our rental is located at Millennium Marina.We renovated a floating cabin into a truly modern and usable space! You will be staying DIRECTLY on the water. While this brings an abundance of beauty, it can also bring bugs or other critters in the warmer months.
We have a full kitchen (no oven), and we provide the basic amenities for you like pots, pans, silverware, plates, and other cooking essentials. We also provide 1 bath towel per person and bed sheets. We provide one cotton blanket, so please bring extra in the colder months if you like a lot of blankets.
You will have to walk down a dock at our marina to get to the rental. It is located on the back side of our restaurant.

Sorry, no pets allowed.

Kayak rentals available from the restaurant on property, when they are in season. You get one free hour kayak rental for all registered guests (you can always ask about your specific time if interested in kayaks).
Please ask about current restaurant hours if this amenity is important for you.
SWIMMING NOT ADVISED, but if you do swim, it is at your own risk.

WE ARE LOCATED IN A FLOOD ZONE. While flooding only usually happens in the Spring for about a week, we are located on a river, so that means we can flood at any point. We will have to rebook your stay if flooding is in the forecast.

We really just want to make sure you understand what the backwaters are like. Its BEAUTIFUL around our 14 acre river front property...but that means BUGS in the Summer! The sunsets are OUTSTANDING, and the wildlife is abundant. We want you to understand that the river has a strong current, so SWIMMING NOT ADVISED- BUT CAN SWIM AT YOUR OWN RISK.
