Never in my life have we had such a relaxing and fun vacation as when we rented the houseboat at Voyagaire Houseboats. The Management and staff are so friendly and helpful and their new lodge is beautiful!

Voyagaire Houseboats has a beautiful new lodge, as well as a fleet of boats, on the southern shore of Crane Lake where the boundary waters begin. The lodge is brand new and very nicely done with a big restaurant and bar as well as a big deck that all overlook the lake. Since they're so remote the lodge is a... More

The brand new Voyagaire Lodge has 14 large guest rooms and suites. There is excellent dining for large and small groups and a large bar/lounge with a fireplace to keep you warm. The lodge was built 2013 with excellent craftsmanship with the design from the owners Gretchen & Jim. Amazing how beautifully the lodge is with the winter setting. This... More

We had a great houseboat vacation. Took our two daughters and son in laws for our first houseboat experience and it didn't disappoint. The hospitality service was a great addition and inexpensive. The trivia game on Friday and Saturday was fun. We stayed at the lodge the night before and it is beautiful. Beautiful scenery, sunrise and sunsets. Service is... More

We love this place! We took houseboat trips from Voyagaire in 2010 and 2012, and have rented snowmobiles from them the last 2 winters, stayed in the lodge during one winter trip, we have enjoyed their restaurant when in the area but staying elsewhere, and time and again they are helpful, pleasant and a joy to deal with. Even when... More

The ultimate vacation experience along with the best staff, truly an enjoyable time. This was our 3 time and the first we brought our 3 boys ranging from 5 to 14. They all had a really great time and are already talking about wanting to go again.

Voyagaire Houseboats is a great vacation. From the dock boys to the hospitality boat drivers to the owners Jim & Gretchen. Our trip was a success. Very beautiful country. Same time next year. K.Butterfield

We have been regular houseboaters at Voyagaire for 13 years - and that's usually twice per year every year. We LOVE it! The owners and staff are very friendly and accommodating, the dock staff loads and unloads your boat before you can even finish checking in/out, and the boats are always very clean! I will say, some of their boats... More

The Janssen's have a great business and a fun family vacation package! We had three generations on the SportCruiser 440 DLX from 56 to 4 yrs old. The boat was comfortable and had all the amenities we expected including a great gas grill, working stoves, fridge, usable shower (and I'm 6'4"!) and comfortable beds if you're not use to a... More
