With temperatures cooling but still plenty of sun guaranteed through most of October and off-season rates now in effect, right now is a good time to try houseboating at the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Forever Resorts, the National Park Service concessioner that operates rental houseboats at Lake Mead’s Callville Bay Resort and Marina and Lake Mohave’s Cottonwood Cove Resort and Marina. Forever Resorts is offering a “Secret Fall Special” through October 27.
Specifics of the value offers vary depending upon the size of the houseboat and the duration of the trip, but discounts start at $500 and increase from there.
The houseboats are climate controlled, and include private staterooms, spacious living areas, fully equipped kitchens, outdoor barbecue grills and, on the largest models, top-level hot tubs.
Able to accommodate up to 12 passengers while in motion, houseboats are popular with extended families, groups of couples or gatherings of friends. Fishing, riding personal watercraft, hiking, tubing, wakeboarding—or just relaxing on the houseboat’s top-level sundeck with a great book—all become all-day, every day possibilities when guests opt for a houseboat vacation. Each marina also offers small power boats, PWCs and water toys to enhance the experience on the water; Cottonwood Cove on Lake Mohave also rents kayaks and paddle boards.
