What To Do In Cordova

Do the floating homes move?

If you have ever sought out Alaska vacation rentals, then you know how difficult a decision you are faced with. There’s so much beauty across this splendid state, but much of it can be enjoyed when you stay in cabins on the Prince William Sound. Floating homes or cottages are almost always moored, either permanently or semi-permanently. The same is true of these Prince William Sound floating homes, as these cozy cabins are anchored in the remote wilderness.

How much does it cost to rent a houseboat?

As is true with all Prince William Sound cottages, your total cost is dependent upon the package you choose. You can rent a houseboat in Cordova for less than $2500 for a five night stay, though combination packages equip you with the versatility to enjoy a variety of unique getaways.

What do I need to bring to spend the night on a houseboat?

When you stay in Prince William Sound cottage rentals, you’ll find yourself surrounded by all sorts of wilderness. As a result, it’s essential to bring binoculars to get a close-up look at Alaskan wildlife without disrupting their routine. As you’ll find yourself directly on the water in these houseboats, it’s important to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and anything else you’d bring on a traditional beachfront adventure.
