Houseboat Vacations in Kentucky

Home to the Houseboat Capital of the World, Kentucky is the place to spend your vacation on the water. These floating villas offer all the creature comforts of a hotel, feel like home, and allow you to vacation right on the water!

Houseboats are available to rent from numerous marinas on lakes across the state. Lake Cumberland in Kentucky’s Southern Shorelines region is known as the “Houseboating Capital of the World” and has the country’s largest fleet of rental houseboats. Count the heads that need beds and start searching for the perfect vessel, from a tiny houseboat for two to 90’ boats that can fit your entire extended family. Many houseboats come with amenities like air conditioning, full kitchens, TVs, private staterooms and even jacuzzis and water slides.

If you can drive a car, you can captain a houseboat. Before leaving the dock, a marina pilot will provide a tutorial on how to operate your boat. Then, set out to discover hidden coves, scenic cliffs and other lake landscapes you’ll only find in Kentucky!
