We stayed at the Lodge one night, breakfast included, and rented a houseboat the next day. The lodge is very nice and has an excellent restaurant. The houseboat team really know what they are doing. We felt very safe with them. The waters out of Crane Lake are extensive, but if you need help or service or even ice or... More

Best vacation in a long time. So relaxing and beautiful. Everyone at the lodge was very helpful and friendly. Houseboat was nice and the sites we stayed at were all great. Swimming, sitting in the hot tub, cursing around the lakes, fishing and everything else we did were fantastic. We would recommend this very highly.

We stayed at the Lodge the night before boarding houseboat. The Lodge is new and rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and hardworking. The food at the restaurant was delicious and service was great. The voyagaire staff member Mike showed us how to manage everything on the houseboat and gave us advice on where to go. The... More

The sites were breathtaking at sunrise and sunset. We saw more animals than at the zoo and the kids loved it. The houseboats are in need of some upgrading, for example the hot tub takes 16+ hours to heat from Lake water temperature. New hot tubs take less than half the time. Word of advice, never turn off the generator... More

Voyagaire is definitely the best houseboat/lodge organization from Crane Lake to Lake Kabetogama. Jim, Gretchen, and Denise are superb, helping all guests with whatever they need to make the most of their vacation. This is our second annual family stay (12 people total) The lodge, lounge and restaurant are great (food is great). The houseboats are always immaculately cleaned and... More

This is a review on the lodge, dining, AND the houseboat... Lodge – We stayed here the night before we rented a houseboat . We were in room #8 with 2 double beds. It was a nice sized room. It included a refrigerator and microwave. The shower pressure was just ok. It was very quiet here. Not sure if there... More

We spent 7 days on this houseboat and had a great time in Voyageurs National Park. It rained several times and the bugs were out but there is no place like this park. The boat ran great and was in excellent shape. The crew at Voyagaire was great. The loaded all the supply's from our cars and gave a complete... More

The people and boats of Voyagaire are amazing!! We had a great time the week we were there. The staff was amazing in everything from check in, to loading/unloading the boat and the great service. I would recommend them to anyone who will listen! Definitely will be returning for a future vacation.

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
