Houseboating.org is the premier internet source to learn about and to schedule a houseboating vacation. We represent every major houseboating destination in North America including Lake Powell, Lake Cumberland, Lake Mead, Shasta Lake and all points in between.
A Utah based company, Houseboating.org started as a great idea 15 years ago from the founders of the Go Travel Sites. They wanted to service the houseboating niche travel segment comprehensively and bring the joy of a fantastic vacation to more and more people all across the country and the world. In 2003 that idea became a reality when Houseboating.org first offered trips to Lake Powell. A decade and 40 additional destinations later, we’re still going strong thanks to our great staff and of course our fantastic clients.
Our staff represents something unusual in the world of online travel, a wealth of real world knowledge and experience. You can be confident when you contact us that you’re not only going to have a friendly and knowledgeable sales agent, but also someone who ACTUALLY knows what they are talking about from firsthand experience. Our agents have been there and done that.
