Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.

It’s a permanent boat house on the river. There’s a dog park right outside the door and a park to walk or exercise. Well light and safe. Just a short walk to downtown lacrosse or an Uber ride away. Situated between the worlds largest six pack and the main channel of the Mississippi it’s the perfect rustic get away. Sleepless in Seattle style right here in the Midwest. Has a full kitchen and a portable toilet inside with a water cooler for cooking and drinking. Kayak and mountain bike for guests.

This place is just as Brian described. We call them fishing shanties in our area, though this one comes equipped with nice appliances and all the basics for an enjoyable stay. Brian was always on call it seemed, answering our questions immediately. If one tunes out the white…

We loved being on the river. Coffee on the deck in the morning was fabulous. We brought a 5 gallon jug of water & did not miss Wi-Fi at all. Rustic & wonderful.

The place is exactly as described! It is a perfect size for a couple’s weekend stay. We spent the nights with our poles in the water (although we weren’t lucky enough to catch anything), and took the dog to the park every morning. La Crosse is a great city, and this is a fun…

So I was unfortunately unable to stay at the boat house. However I still wanted to write a review as Brian was so helpful from start to finish. I plan on going back just to stay in this houseboat finally!

Cool place on the river, at a great price. Only thing I hoped for was that the outdoor shower worked, even if we had to provide our own water, or even pump the river water. It was still a great stay though regardless, and we would definitely stay again.

It was a neat experience staying on a house boat. My friend absolutely loved the idea, and is coming back soon to stay again. Its neat and clean on the inside, be aware that there is no running water. But water is supplied by Brian. The houseboat has everything you need. My only…
