Still with me, I see. 

Lake Powell houseboats are extremely popular.  This means that reserving one can be tricky.  There are some things you should be aware of BEFORE you make a reservation.


There is only one company you can rent houseboats from, but there are plenty of services that will process your request.  MANY OF THESE COMPANIES CHARGE A RESERVATION PROCESSING FEE IN ADDITION TO THE COST OF THE BOAT. Watch for these fees as some companies charge quite a bit for the privilege of using their service!  We do not charge a fee to use our service .

Changes made to your reservation or cancellations will result in a loss of some or all of your deposit (and rental fee later on).  So if your reservation is available, but Aunt Mildred and family decide not to go, you're on the hook for the deposit.

Coordinating all the schedules, transportation and lodging is extremely complicated and the first time is a learning process. If you are uncomfortable with setting a firm reservation, we strongly urge you to consider a houseboat vacation at Lake Mead or Lake Mohave. All boats have air conditioning, the rates are generally lower, availability is usually greater and you will have about 10 days to decide if you want to accept the reservation.  And yes, you can still use our company and there still isn't a charge for our service.

On Lake Powell, many luxury cruisers offer fabulous amenities at a huge cost savings when renting -- allowing you to sleep on board, but exploring at as much as four times the speed of the houseboat.

In my experience, too many people trying to coordinate vacation schedules takes the fun out of the excursion.  The smaller the party, the more I've enjoyed the Lake.  I have found four to six people to be ideal.

The question I ask people when they are trying to decide on the number of days is this:  How long would you allow yourself to be locked in a hotel room with this group?  For me, five days is pretty much the maximum.
