Rainy Lake Houseboat Rentals

Rainy Lake is enormous, straddling the borders of Ontario, Canada, and Minnesota. Its southeastern end is rimmed by Voyageurs National Park, famous for its extensive water networks. Rainy Lake itself is less a network and more expanse, an endless stretch of pure, remote water. The wild, rough shoreline is complemented by island after island of all sizes. Exploring every mile of this rich coast would take years, but they would be years well spent.

Naturally, houseboating on this lake is a popular activity, and with water as open as this, you may not be able to resist renting a powerboat alongside. The tight inlets are perfect for exploring by canoe, or you can moor your boat and explore the largely untouched lands on foot.

However, the most popular activity at Rainy Lake — besides boating — is fishing. Rainy Lake is known as the best drive to smallmouth bass lake in the United States, and it's also teaming with walleye, northern pike, crappie and muskies in certain areas. Bring a pole when you rent a houseboat and prepare for umatched fishing and unparalleled scenery on stunning Rainy Lake.
