This Summer, Take An Iowa Vacation On A Floating Villa On The Mississippi River

Let’s face it. As much as we love summer, summers in Iowa cannot be described as cool or refreshing. Instead, they are just plain hot. Enter the Mississippi Pearl, a themed houseboat perfect for a fun, relaxing, cool, refreshing summer getaway. As temperatures begin to climb and the heat starts to get you down, escape on a one-of-a-kind vacation on your very own personal floating villa from McGregor, Iowa on down the mighty Mississippi River.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

To learn more or reserve the Mississippi Pearl for your own week on the water, visit Boatels Houseboat Rentals and Marina. And if the Mississippi Pearl is already booked, don’t worry! Boatels Marina offers other boat rentals, too, including three more themed houseboats of various sizes and styles: the Backwater Lodge, the Drunken Coconut, and the Reel Inn. Or, if you love the river but aren’t crazy to sail up and down it for a week, stay in a floating cabin instead!
