1949 Gordy

Overall it was a very nice stay. The only reason it did not get 5 stars was the noisy air conditioner. Very relaxing on both decks with coffee and drinks. Great hiking areas!!!

Lovely retreat

  • 5 of 5

The houseboat was a perfect place to celebrate our 10th anniversary. It was serene and peaceful, yet just a short drive to shops and restaurants. The houseboat charm was exactly what we were looking for to unwind.

For those not familiar with houseboats, be prepared for a marine toilet and small shower. Neither were an issue but could be surprising for some.

We enjoyed walks along the Mississippi River, skipping stones and looking for Eagles. Great restaurants nearby. Owners of houseboat were very responsive
