Call Yourself Captain with Egan Houseboats

Egan Houseboats has been so generous this year, partnering with Cottage Country Lifestyle Magazine to offer one lucky reader the chance to experience houseboating for themselves!

Egan Houseboat Rentals have the largest rental houseboat fleet in Ontario and their smaller style houseboats are designed for the Trent Severn Waterway. Easy handling, maneuverability and stress-free operation makes them an easy choice for a family getaway.

Close your eyes and picture this: warm sun on your face, birds singing in the distance, a breeze rustles the trees nearby and the waves lap gently; as evening falls you hear a loon call in the distance – this is houseboating.

The Trent-Severn offers 386 kilometres of canal, connecting Lake Ontario at Trenton to Lake Huron at Port Severn. As you travel from lake to lake, you will pass through small historic towns – each diverse and so full of charm that your heart and spirit will fill with a warmth only Cottage Country has to offer. Beautifully maintained parks greet you at each lock and there are restaurants, bars, antique shops, bakeries, ice cream stores, shopping and spas to pique your interest. Each night you choose between staying in one of these charming towns or finding a quiet bay nearby to watch the stars.

Combining the rewards of cottage living and the adventure of travel, a houseboat permits you to explore a different locale each day. No need to plan accommodations each night; like a turtle, you travel with your home when you have a houseboat! Enjoy the scenery as you tour in search of the perfect secluded bay for private relaxation.

When you are the captain you choose your destination each day. Cruise westward to Lake Simcoe or east to Peterborough and see their famous Lift Lock.  Drop anchor and stay in a favourite fishing spot. Choices like these are what separates using a houseboat from any other type of vacation – the freedom to choose your pace, to go where you want, when you want, and just relax, knowing you have all the comforts of a cottage along with you.

Egan Houseboat Rentals is a small family-run business which operates from their marina in the heart of the Kawarthas – the most popular region on the Trent Severn Waterway. An Egan houseboat can accommodate one to three couples or one to two small families depending on the size of boat chosen (40′ or 32′). Book with a group of friends, or make it a memorable family retreat.
