Very clean, well stocked, peaceful and relaxing and reasonably priced

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the place. It was clean, and had all the basic kitchen utensils/appliances you would need. There were more than enough linens and towels. There was food( condiments) in the fridge and cupboards but we weren't sure they were there for us to use? ( Or for a fee?) so clarification on that would be nice. The second toilet was really nice to have. Downstairs sink was also nice, however a mirror over that sink would make it better. Missed having a screen on the big front window and the backdoor( upstairs) to get a nice breeze through the house but couldn't because when we propped open the back door a wasp flew into the house! The "fireplace" was very enjoyable and effective to have on in the evenings. Canoe and fishing stuff was available but the peddle boat took on water when we tried to use it , so we didn't. The local market worked great for whatever we needed. A short walk down to the end of the dock gave us some wifi abilities and a nice view of the lake and surrounding scenery. All in all we would highly recommend this place. Bill was very pleasant to deal with.

Comfortable, Clean, and Affordable!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay on this houseboat was better than expected! We had a group of 5 adults and we were all very comfortable. We all had our own space and some privacy which was nice. We cooked a lot over the weekend and the kitchen worked out great. The property was very clean and well-maintained. Before our stay, I had lots of questions and the owner was very helpful with all of my questions. I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends. We stayed on the houseboat to attend a wedding, so we didn't do a lot of activities. However, we did go to the Captain's Wheel for drinks one night and that was fun. We also found the locals to be very friendly :)

Lovely stay August 2016

  • 5 of 5

The houseboat is quiet with lots of room and was just what we needed. It is clean, well-maintained and has lots of little amenities such as two boats to use and a fully stocked kitchen. The house has everything you need except wifi, but we wanted to get away from the internet anyway. I would recommend this to anyone. We were able to rent a small fishing boat for a tour of the lake from the wonderful owner of MacDonald's Hudson Bay Resort, 5 minutes away. Could not have been happier here. If you go to Silverwood, buy ahead online and you will get the best discount.

A fun summer get-away!

  • 4 of 5

The float home was clean and well-appointed, and by closing the blinds at the appropriate times and using the AC, we were able to keep it cool during a hot week.

The Marina office provided us with the wifi password at no cost, although the signal strength was inconsistent...enough, though, for us to check our e-mail and send some messages. We got NO cell signal at the house (AT&T and Verizon), although we got a Verizon signal at the Mercantile up the street.

We enjoyed our stay. What's not to like about taking four steps from the door and into the lake?!
