Do the floating homes move?

Looking to stay in Arkansas? Be sure to check out some Kirby cabins and places to stay on Kirby Landing Marina. Yes, you read that right… you can actually stay directly on the water in these unique Lake Greeson cottage rentals. Traditionally, floating homes are moored or anchored, so they’ll actually move very little. Imagine awaking to the gorgeous sight of water just outside your bedroom window without facing the effort of maintaining your own private yacht or houseboat.

How much does it cost to rent a houseboat?

If you’re seeking out Lake Greeson house rentals, it’s most definitely worth your effort to consider staying in Kirby Landing Marina floating homes. Amazingly, these quirky cabins on the water are notably affordable. Most floating cabins accommodate larger groups and can be booked for less than a few hundred dollars. Here in Arkansas, you just might book a cabin for less than $150 a night.

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

Whether you are enjoying cabins on Lake Greeson or enjoying a getaway somewhere more tropical, you’ll find that you will need to bring along many of the same necessities. Sunscreen, sunglasses, swimsuits, and water shoes ensure that you can have stress-free waterfront fun. You should also plan on bringing extra towels and blankets, just in case you find you need them. As is true with most camping trips, you’ll find that it is a good idea to bring bug spray, binoculars, a hat, and a few extra outfits.
