Beautiful houseboat, is permanently moored in a 1st Class Marina with sunning open water views. YOU CANNOT DRIVE THIS HOUSEBOAT. There is no engine in it so it does NOT leave the marina. You will literally be rocked to a great nights sleep by the gentle waves of Lake Conroe! With the master bedroom and pull out futon, this houseboat can comfortably sleep up to 4! Lil Hobo features a mini kitchen with mini fridge, microwave and cook top, breakfast table, a living room with pull out futon, a separate master bedroom and full bath. Both front and rear porches are equipped with cup and fishing pole holders. Restaurants and shopping are within walking distance! Boat Rentals available at the marina.
We do NOT allow parties or extra guests on any of our houseboats. The maximum number of guests allowed on this boat is 2. Additional guests (no matter how long they are here) are not allowed. If we see any additional guests on the boat over the maximum limit, you will all be asked to leave and your reservation will be forfeited and no refund will be given.
It's one hour from Houston, the 4th largest city in America, but feels like a million miles away. The lake is massive - 26 mile long and 6 miles wide. Come and explore or just relax. This is a great area, away from the big city atmosphere but within distance of everything of importance.
People friendly and the Marina has a permanent holiday feel to it, laid back and relaxing. Hearing a huge 'splash' next to the boat and seeing a huge fish swim off into its' playful surroundings. The geese come by periodically to say hi as well.
We had a Quite and wonderful time on the Lil Hobo, Very cozy houseboat. James and Cherie were great. Cherie helped us get are things to the boat and made sure we had everything we needed. We plan to go back at sometime. We did find that renting a boat to go around the lake was very expensive. They do not have boat are jet ski renal at the marina.
This houseboat is really cute, nicer in person than in pictures. The reason I didn't give 5 stars is because the smell of sulfur is very strong anytime you turn the water on. It was very clean. We enjoyed our stay and are planning to return and rent a larger boat and take our kids. If you get motion sickness you may need to take medication for it, it gets really rocky especially during the day....very busy lake. At night you get rocked to sleep on a comfy bed. Restaurants within walking distance. We caught many fish off the back of the boat. Thank you for the friendly service, clean marina, and a very peaceful get away. If you are looking to stay on Lake Conroe, this is definitely the place to stay.
It is quaint little boat house with all aminities. Beautiful view of the lake and you can fish from the boat. I was not attending to my fishing rod and looks like a lunker took away the line and my rod.
So fun, so relaxing, though nothing super fancy, Little Hobo is clean and very well maintained, everything you need is provided and, if not, shops, Starbucks, restaurants, CVS all nearby. AC worked beautifully and we slept so well. We live in The Woodlands and had a one night getaway from kids and responsibilities, just swimming and talking and having a few cocktails. So much better than a hotel!
We just got home from our weekend on the houseboat. We took our 2 little boys and they had the best time. The boat was like an adventure to them . Fishing off the boat was excellent for them they caught small perch and catfish non stop. We were able to let them swim right there also with life jackets. We had a bit of a problem with the air conditioner in the back room but the staff and owner's were attentive to this and we will be going back before the Summer ends. This was one of our best mini vacations . The place was very nice , loved the boardwalk and the fishing pier where kids could fed the fish. Having stores within walking distance was a plus.
