Time to Book! Memorial Day at Lake Shasta

Memorial Day lands on Monday, May 26th this year, and we've already begun taking reservations for the weekend leading up to it. But hurry, Memorial Day weekend is one of the biggest weekends of the year for Lake Shasta, and fills up very quickly. In fact, availability becomes fairly slim around January. Get a head start to ensure you are able to reserve your desired dates and houseboat model, but keep these tips in mind as you begin your planning:

Age Requirements:

Keep in mind, there may be an age requirement for renter and co-captain. The age requirements range between 21 and 30 years old, and will depend on the marina you plan to depart from or houseboat model. Read more about these and other policies on our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Maximum Capacities:

A good rule of thumb is to plan on bringing up to the number of people that your houseboat sleeps so that you avoid overcrowding and insure that all members of your party will be comfortable. Official maximum capacities vary by houseboat, but some houseboats allow you to have a few more people above what the houseboat sleeps.

Additional Deposits:

Be aware that there may be an additional refundable security deposit for the holiday weekend, which may be above what is typically required. That amount is usually above your houseboat rental fee, is sometimes due in cash upon your arrival, and refundable at the end of your trip (given the houseboat is returned clean and undamaged.) These deposits can range between $500 and $4000, but will vary by marina and houseboat model.

 

Memorial Day weekend is a great way to kick off the impending summer season. Enjoy perfect May temperatures, which are typically around 80 during the day, and even the water temperature is in the high 60's! Don't wait to plan your houseboat vacation for this popular weekend on Lake Shasta. Call your houseboating agent today at 888-454-8825, or Request Information online.
