Comfortable, Clean, and Affordable!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay on this houseboat was better than expected! We had a group of 5 adults and we were all very comfortable. We all had our own space and some privacy which was nice. We cooked a lot over the weekend and the kitchen worked out great. The property was very clean and well-maintained. Before our stay, I had lots of questions and the owner was very helpful with all of my questions. I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends. We stayed on the houseboat to attend a wedding, so we didn't do a lot of activities. However, we did go to the Captain's Wheel for drinks one night and that was fun. We also found the locals to be very friendly :)

Lovely stay August 2016

  • 5 of 5

The houseboat is quiet with lots of room and was just what we needed. It is clean, well-maintained and has lots of little amenities such as two boats to use and a fully stocked kitchen. The house has everything you need except wifi, but we wanted to get away from the internet anyway. I would recommend this to anyone. We were able to rent a small fishing boat for a tour of the lake from the wonderful owner of MacDonald's Hudson Bay Resort, 5 minutes away. Could not have been happier here. If you go to Silverwood, buy ahead online and you will get the best discount.

Beautiful Bayview Vacation

We had a great time. The float home was clean and had everything we needed. We really appreciate the owner letting a us know the we had forgotten a few items and made it easy for us to pick them up.

A fun summer get-away!

  • 4 of 5

The float home was clean and well-appointed, and by closing the blinds at the appropriate times and using the AC, we were able to keep it cool during a hot week.

The Marina office provided us with the wifi password at no cost, although the signal strength was inconsistent...enough, though, for us to check our e-mail and send some messages. We got NO cell signal at the house (AT&T and Verizon), although we got a Verizon signal at the Mercantile up the street.

We enjoyed our stay. What's not to like about taking four steps from the door and into the lake?!

Great house, super easy access from parking area!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay on the float house! It was such a unique experience. Stunning beautiful views! Bayview was quiet as a mouse after dark, very peaceful.

We didn't have time to use the canoe or paddle boat, but we fished from the dock and caught several fish.

Staying at Bill's house definitely added a special element to our trip that will have lasting good memories for our family.

Place was CUTE!

  • 4 of 5

The photos don't lie, the place is cute. Bright spaces with lighthouse/nautical decor and clean. It's a small space but very efficient. Town of Bayview is cool, one small grocery store, one coffeehouse(some good grub also), couple of bars/restaurants, all full of nice people. We did one day trips to Spokane, CDA, Sandpoint and Canada.

Marks down would be for no WiFi, or AT&T cell service left us with zero contact even for emergencies. Air conditioner only cooled 1/2 rooms, leaving half the house very warm on July nights during our stay. The house has a little tilt to one side that was very awkward for a Kansas crew.

Would recommend and stay again!
