These Floating Cabins In North Carolina Are The Ultimate Place To Stay Overnight This Summer
From lounging by the pool, spending a day at the beach or lake, or even renting a waterside cabin; when it comes to summer we’re all searching for ways to live life by the water. While we’ve covered the North Carolina
bed and breakfast in the middle of the Atlantic, there are a few more floating overnight stays a tad more accessible.
1. Prince Boat Marina, Fontana Lake
Every floating cabin offered through Prince Boat Marina gets you right on the water without sacrificing a few creature comforts. Both "The White House" and "The Gray House" feature two full bedrooms plus sleeper sofa, full kitchen and dining area with gas stove, bathroom and solar power plus generator.
But, that's just the inside. It's hard to believe these floating little houses also offer an outside deck with gas grill, swimming area with ladder and a sun deck with covered porch area. Between stellar mountain views, clear water for a dip, or even some newfound houseboat friends from the lively, floating community you'll find on Fontana Lake, this rental is a cozy adventure.

2. Floating Lakehouse, Fontana Lake
For an idyllic, charming floating cabin, it's hard to believe you can fit up to eight guests inside! Nestled amongst the Smokies in Fontana Lake, this floating sanctuary is great for those who want to catch their dinner steps from the kitchen, hop right into the water, or escape for one of the most unique getaways possible.
The floating, solar powered cabin features 16-foot-high cathedral ceilings, full kitchen, two bedrooms plus loft space. The owners offer shuttle service to and from Oros landing to the floating cabin, so you don't have to worry about how to get there - just WHEN you'll be able to get there.
Of course, you can't beat the stunning views of surrounding you'll be treated to day-in-and-day-out. For over a five day stay, guests are also invited to use the pontoon boat, for less than five days, the pontoon is 125/day. There's also two kayaks available for paddle use, explore the surrounding water and even drop a proverbial anchor for a hike in the woods. This is a getaway that offers much more than a floating cabin but a complete experience.

3. Waterway Floating Condo, Intracoastal
On the other side of the state, while not a cabin per se, this 'floating condo' exudes bright, beachy vibes. Located on the intracoastal just minutes from historic Beaufort, this rental is houseboat meets cozy beach shack.
Yellow walls, sailboats dotting the rug, and plenty of beach-flair trinkets - there's no way to NOT feel like you're floating on the Intracoastal rather inside or out. The condo features two bedrooms but sleeps up to six, a kitchen, patio, dock space available for small fee, and even a grill to serve up the day's catch!
The front porch is perfect for fishing or relaxing and the beach is only a short 20 minutes away. While you might spend a pretty penny for that beach front rental, this allows you to literally be right in the heart of salt breeze and gorgeous sunrises with a little adventure thrown in.

How cool is this! I’ve always wanted to spend the night on a houseboat, but this truly takes it to the next level. Have you stayed in a ‘floating cabin’ before?
