Have you had the pleasure of visiting Crane Lake in Minnesota? This eye-catching destination is right next to the Canadian border in Voyageurs National Park, considered America's only water-based national park. Voyagaire Lodge and Houseboats stands ready to invite you to the area with one of the largest fleet of luxury houseboat rentals in the midwest. Over fifty years has backed this marina’s experience with catering to water-loving guests visiting this gorgeous wilderness. If you have a group size of 8 to 12 people, you’ll want to check out the 550 Voyagaire—the top deck comes complete with a water slide and 8-person hot tub. For smaller groups of 2 to 4, the 360 Suncruiser is perfect. The model is only seven years old and comes with three double beds and enough space for a small crew to get comfortable. You can upgrade to the deluxe model for extras like a swim slide. And if you want to bring your dog along for the fun, good news—pets are allowed to join the family onboard select rental models.
Crane Lake has a unique combination of quiet islands, aged rock formations, and a network of waterways that connect to other lakes in the park, with the boreal forest wrapping around wherever you wander. Keep an eye out for moose, black bear, bald eagles, and loons as you go.
