Welcome Aboard Rainy Lake Houseboats

The Dougherty family of Rainy Lake Houseboats has been providing guests with amazing vacations on Rainy Lake since 1918.

Becoming a part of Voyageurs National Park in 1971, Rainy Lake is a place of transition; between upland and aquatic ecosystems, northern boreal and southern hardwood forests, development and wilderness. It’s where the highways end and the ancient waterways begin.

Our fully equipped MN houseboat rentals provide you with total freedom to explore these waterways as the mood moves you.  Discover hidden bays and intimate islands. Rest on the sun-warmed sands of a secluded cove. Marvel at the sprawling landscape spread before your houseboat bow. Feel the lake beckoning you to roam further. Be serenaded by wilderness sounds are you gather fresh blueberries for morning pancakes.

Listen to the peaceful, haunting calls of the loons. Fall asleep to the music of lapping water underneath a million brilliant stars. Capture memories to last a lifetime!

The captain of a Rainy Lake Houseboat has no schedule – no deadlines – no stress. The captain marches to the beat of a different drummer immersing themselves in the mysterious enchantment of this primitive corner of the world.

Welcome Aboard! We hope you enjoy your wilderness adventure with us.

Things to Do
A Rainy Lake Houseboat vacation is versatile. Whether you are looking to relax in a secluded cove with your favorite book, water-ski the ancient waterways, play the day away on a sun-warmed beach or fish for your dinner, there is something for everyone.

Canoeing and Kayaking
Bring your own or rent a canoe from us to explore the back bays like the Voyageurs of the past.

Renting a Rainy Lake Houseboat allows you to have immediate access to world-class fishing. You won’t have to travel far to your fishing spot since you can moor the houseboat close by. A dream for many anglers, the lake boasts walleyes, northern pike, smallmouth, black crappies, and muskies. Click Here for our fishing reports
