If you've ever spent a sunny afternoon relaxing on a boat, you've probably experienced the feeling of never wanting to return to shore. Book a stay in this floating retreat, and you won't have to! This houseboat Airbnb in Quebec is the perfect water oasis for you and another guest to have a rejuvenating holiday.
Floating on the Gatineau River, the 'River Den' houseboat is docked in beautiful Wakefield, QC. This 5-star tiny home will give you a taste of rustic living, as it does not have hot water or electricity. You'll have a truly unique, 'unplugged' experience!
The 4 season River Den was designed and built entirely by the owners. Measuring only 33 ft long, the boat offers a cozy, cottage life vibe. The wood stove in the corner is perfect for cool summer evenings. You'll fall in love with the whimsical, wooden furnishings that almost seem fairy-tale like.
The Airbnb can sleep 2 guests in a comfy loft above the main room. Complete with a queen sized bed and airy, steel-grid floor, you will be rocked gently to sleep by the blue waters outside. The houseboat also boasts a carpeted rooftop deck, perfect for getting that golden summer glow, gazing at the starry night sky, or doing yoga.
Apart from relaxing on the rooftop patio, there are lots to do on the River Den. Swim in the gorgeous waters surrounding the boat, fish off the deck, or rent kayaks, canoes, and more from the nearby shop. The Airbnb is a 4 season retreat, which means you can even enjoy it in the winter! It's fully insulated and makes a very cozy, snowy getaway. Just remember to bring your fuzzy socks!
While access to electricity is unavailable, the hosts offer a power pack for charging devices. Also included are firewood, drinking water, fuel for the cooking stove, and a cooler with ice to keep your provisions cold. The boat is motorized, but guests are asked to keep it docked during their stay.
Price Per Night: $210
