Enjoy your stay in a colorful, eclectic houseboat with a bright living area

Docked in Saugatuck, Michigan, this colorful wooden houseboat offers a peaceful respite from your busy, noisy life. Chris's Airbnb listing details all of the reasons why a stay on the Kalamazoo River is a great idea for a mini-vacation. Comfortable and cozy, this 30-foot wooden boat is just the right size for two people to enjoy a weekend getaway together.
Outfitted with a kitchenette, a half-bathroom, and a double bed, the boat is tucked away in a quiet marina, yet only minutes away from the nearest town. Watch the sun set from the upper deck each night, and fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Climb up on deck and check out the cabin as well as the boat's other amenities, and see what makes this wooden houseboat so charming.

As you walk onto the boat you'll notice the bright, cheerful colors, including a built-in booth for meals lined with overstuffed cushions, as well as bold paper lanterns hanging all around the cabin, bringing an exuberant, lively atmosphere to the space.
The small but fully functional kitchenette features everything you need for a comfortable stay, including an oven/range, sink, and a small refrigerator. Though with delicious restaurants within walking distance, the only thing you'll likely be making is your evening cocktail!
Once you're ready to be lulled to sleep by the waves of the ocean, head downstairs to curl up inside a cozy sleeping nook.
With a small window and a lamp, there's enough light to see and a cute, comfortable space to spend the night.
The boat includes a half-bath with a toilet, vanity, and sink. Showers are provided nearby at the marina when necessary.
The best part of the day is relaxing on the upper deck and enjoying the sun setting on the water, then gazing up at the stars while you breathe in the ocean air. You'll never sleep better than you do on a floating home!​
