Winter Houseboat Destinations

There’s no reason to wait until summer to rent a houseboat. Thanks to mild year-round temperatures, some of the best recreational lakes in the Southwestern United States offer houseboat rentals throughout the winter. 

At Forever Houseboats, we provide houseboat rentals on America’s most scenic waterways. These are our top three picks for the best winter houseboat destinations in the country.

Lake Powell

Lake Powell is the largest man-made lake in North America. It has also been rated one of the top 10 houseboat lakes by Condé Nast Traveler and Houseboat Magazine. The stunning mesas and plateaus of the Glen Canyon are striking against the deep turquoise waters of the lake.

Our Antelope Point Marina on Lake Powell is located near the most well-known geological feature of Glen Canyon, the Rainbow Bridge National Monument. Experience the beauty and serenity on Lake Powell in the winter; it is magical.

Lake Mead

Surrounded by rugged mountains and beautiful red cliffs, Lake Mead is one of two lakes within the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Our Callville Bay Resort and Marina is less than an hour away from Las Vegas. Located in the Mohave Desert, Lake Mead has very few rainy days, no matter what the season. Lake Mead also offers incredible winter fishing, hiking, and over 500 miles of scenic shorelines to explore.

Lake Mohave

Lake Mohave is the smaller lake within the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Between the Hoover Dam and the body of Lake Mohave is Black Canyon. This incredibly scenic waterway, with towering sheer cliff walls, has recently been named a National Water Trail. Black Canyon is just one of the many attractions that draw visitors to Lake Mohave all year-long. Our full-service Cottonwood Cove Resort and Marina on Lake Mohave features a cafe and gift shop.

The mild winters of the Southwestern United States draw visitors to the area every year. Take advantage of the warm weather and beautiful scenery at Lake Powell, Lake Mead, or Lake Mohave this winter and rent a houseboat from Forever Houseboats. Contact us today to make your reservation.
