We’ve already shown you some of the amazing treehouses you can rent on Airbnb, but now we’re taking a look at some prime rentals for all you water lovers. Houseboats are a unique and totally relaxing option when you’re traveling. Here are five dreamy and gorgeous houseboats you can rent on Airbnb in the United States.
The Rutabaga — Seattle, Wash.
If you’re ever in the Seattle area, this might be one of the coolest places to stay! The owner of the boat completely refurbished it after buying it and added an upstairs bedroom. The barge home is absolutely stunning, with a full kitchen, bedroom, a spacious living room, full bathroom and a deck for taking in views of Seattle and Lake Union.
Old Hickory houseboat — Nashville, Tenn.
You usually don’t think about staying on a houseboat when you visit Nashville, but maybe you should. This boat, located in Old Hickory, comes fully-loaded with a TV, large kitchen and a separate bedroom. At $180 per night, it’s more affordable that most Nashville hotels and floating in a much more peaceful setting.
Lake Fontana Houseboat — Robbinsville, NC
This house may not have all of the amenities of the others, but it could just be the coolest. It’s a completely off the grid, floating house on Lake Fontana, but has all of the basics. It’s only accessible by boat, but if you’re looking for a little adventure with a great group of friends, this is the place. If you live in the area or plan on traveling here, you have to look this houseboat up!
The Rockaway — Queens, NY
This houseboat is oozing character and charm. Nested right in Jamaica Bay, it can sleep up to 12 guests (yes, you read that correctly). Purchased and fixed up by eight friends, the Rockaway has three-stories, four bedrooms and is designed impeccably. At only $250 per night, this houseboat is a total steal.
The Carpe Diem — Jonestown, Texas
On the outside, this Texas houseboat doesn’t look like anything too special, but inside, it’s pure luxury. The Carpe Diem is docked on Lake Travis and is 90-feet long and three-stories high. Sleeping 10, it has five separate bedrooms and a killer sundeck. According to the listing, “Chef, catering, paddleboards, wake board boat, and jet ski’s are available for extra fee.” Wow!
