Floating Cabins In Washington

June 07, 2019

Do the floating homes move?

  • The cabins are built on log floats, so some movement is possible. However, the structures are quite sturdy, and the lake water is peaceful, so you shouldn't notice much movement. For example, it's not the same as staying on a houseboat, but it's not always entirely still, either.


How much does it cost to rent a cabin?

  • The rates of these cabin rentals will vary depending on the exact date and the type of cabin you'd like. A Modern Cabin, which sleeps up to six people, averages $270 per night for the first two guests. Each additional person is $20 nightly. The Little Cabins sleep four and cost $245 per night for two, with each additional guest adding $20. The spacious, two-story Peak Cabins sleep nine and cost $435 per night, with each guest over four adding $22 to the total. The Private Bunkhouse can host up to 10 people, and it rents for $340 (each guest over six adds $20.)


What do I need to bring to spend the night in a cabin? 

  • All cabins are completely furnished and include electricity, running water, kitchens, and private bathrooms. All you'll need to bring is an overnight bag and plenty of groceries since you'll be in the middle of nowhere. You can bring your own equipment, like kayaks and canoes, or rent it onsite.
