Come stay at our floating oasis on the backwaters of the Mississippi river! We have the boat in the water YEAR ROUND (It does not move and the engine bay is welded shut)! This 70 foot houseboat is newly remodeled and ready for you and your guests. It features a custom kitchen, a master bedroom with a full bed and a tv, a bunkhouse room with a full bed, and a basement bedroom with 2 full beds. The living room has a trundle couch that turns into a king-size bed. We also have a full size air mattress.
The boat is located at Millennium Marina.You will have to walk on a dock to get to the boat. Things are a little different than a typical "home", but its super fun! The roof may NOT be accessible at all times of the year (like when it is super cold, raining, or snowing). If there is ANY snow at all, we ask you DO NOT go on the roof, as it can be dangerous.
We provide a coffee maker, toaster, stove, oven, and other kitchen items. We also provide one towel per person, and all bed linens.
The 70 ft roof is equipped with a bar and outdoor furniture.
We also have boat slips available by the night or by the week. One uncovered slip is provided with your rental. 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.

PLEASE NOTE- We are located on the Mississippi and WE DO FLOOD. We might have to cancel the reservation if flooding is in the forecast. The cabin will stay in the water year round! SWIMMING NOT ADVISED unless you understand the river and swim at your own risk.

2 ski resorts are only a short drive away!
