Help with houseboat vacation

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I am the lucky one who got placed in charge of planning this years fishing trip for the guys in my family. We are doing a houseboat trip and have a few places picked out. We are looking at Rainy Lake Houseboats, Vermilion Houseboats, and Voyagaire houseboats. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions about those places or any other suggestions. We would prefer to stay on the Minnesota side of border too. I ask for help because I do ice fishing not really open water so any help would be appreciated. Thanks again for all of your help

Make sure you have a GPS and spare batteries in every boat every time you go out fishing. You can get mighty turned around on that water. Been there, done that, and it wasn't fun.

I have heard nothing but great things about Bill Dougherty and Rainy Lake Houseboats.

Rainy has beautiful scenery and the fishing is also as well very good.

A few friends have used them and they said the nigh spots for camping were very nice with some having nice beaches. I honestly have not heard negative things about this place at all.

I fish Rainy every year and one of these years I plan on using a houseboat trip myself.

I posted in the thread mentioned above. Have done Rainy River Houseboats 4 times now and will keep going back The Dougherty family has treated us very well and will use them many more times to come.

We have been to all three. Rainy lake house boats are a bit more used than others but still very nice and the lake speaks for itself. Vermillion has great house boats and a bit more cost effective, the lake is great but a bit busier than the others and not as remote. Now Ebels on Namakin, Sandpoint and Kab have by far the nicest boats out there. They have some in line with the others mentioned but also have some really nice ones to but as we all know that comes at an expence. You cannot go wrong with any of them as they are all pros and do everything they can to make it a memorable experience. By far one of the most relaxing vacations my family and I have ever taken. In fact it is about time we go again!

I wish it would be that way. Bring the ice rods and auger and I would be in heaven. We are headed there June 10th thru the 14th. The water may be a little cold then but I do know I am going off of that slide for sure.
