Come to our lakes. Nothing beats houseboat life in the Shuswap.
Be the captain of your own ship and sail into adventure. Imagine having a private cabin you can take anywhere – a place you can come home to in a different spot every night.
Of all the wonderful ways to explore our region, houseboating shines as a truly Shuswap experience. With warm lakes and over 600 kms of shoreline to discover, taking to the water on a houseboat offers unparalleled freedom and variety. It’s a unique way for families and friends to create memories together – off the beaten path.
Whether you’re looking for peaceful solitude, a family adventure, or time on the water with friends, a houseboat can be the perfect base for your holiday. In spring and fall, you mightjust feel like you’ve got a lake to yourself – and the water’s still warm enough to jump in.
Houseboats come equipped with full kitchens, so you can stock upon groceries at a local farm stand and make home-cooked meals away from shore. For days when you want to leave the cooking to someone else, hire a caterer or visit a lakeside restaurant – or head to a dock and walk to some of our best cafés, restaurants, and pubs. Pack a book or two to read on the deck and games to enjoy with family and friends. Take your mountain bike aboard so you can stop and explore our trails. Bring a kayak or SUP for self-propelled adventures and shoreline visits. And along the way, get to know our friendly communities, with great shopping, entertainment, and festivals to enjoy.
