The name says it all. Come aboard our 54' houseboat bed and breakfast for a trip customized just for you. You may want to cruise locally in Lake Union or go through Portage Bay into Lake Washington. You’ll see the University of Washington and many of the houseboats that were made popular in the movie "Sleepless in Seattle". The views of Mt. Rainier to the south or Mt. Baker to the north are spectacular!

If ocean cruising is your passion, we can pass through the Ballard Locks, an adventure in itself, out into Puget Sound. From there we can cruise south and explore Seattle’s waterfront or travel to one of the nearby islands. You’ll be able to enjoy the sunset over the Olympic Mountains while sipping a glass of wine or relaxing in the hot tub or maybe both at the same time.

Come aboard - your Joyfull Adventure awaits!
