Where are there houseboats in Seattle?

If you’re looking for a houseboat stay in Seattle, Lake Union is your best bet. Situated just north of downtown Seattle, Lake Union is a freshwater lake that’s accessible from Puget Sound to the west, through the Ballard Locks, or Lake Washington to the east.

Nearby neighborhoods will depend on where you’re docked, but many houseboats for rent in Seattle put you close to Westlake, where you’ll find cozy cafés, patio dining and outdoorsy pastimes like kayaking. You could also rent a houseboat in Northlake, home of the Fremont Troll and walking distance to breweries and restaurants.

When is the best time to rent a houseboat for a vacation in Seattle?

Summer is the best time to rent a houseboat in Seattle, especially if you don’t have too strict of a budget. The months of July and August usually have the best weather, but also bring the most visitors. However, you’ll be secluded on your floating home, so you won’t even notice the tourists.

For the best deals, try the shoulder season: May and June in the spring, or try for an early fall visit in September when it’s still a bit warm. The weather will be in the 60s during the day, and rainfall is still low in these months. But the city isn’t as crowded and prices will drop.

Where can I find romantic Seattle houseboat getaways?

Located in Eastlake, the Lake Union Sunsets Houseboat faces west—so you get gorgeous sunsets from your own private dock. With a full kitchen, a living room with a TV and lake views all around, you and your sweetheart can cozy up all day—or come ashore for lakeside dining and strolls in Fairview Park.

The Ginger Houseboat on Lake Union takes the amenities even further: air conditioning and heating keep you comfortable, and a washer and dryer come in handy for wet bathing suits. Relax on your rooftop patio or cook dinner together in the full kitchen. It’s your own private paradise.
