Michael, who rented the boat in October 2020 wrote,

Very relaxing & unique getaway. Hosts were very accommodating. Fishing was fun & watching other people fishing & boats passing by was delightful. Peaceful fall foliage was the perfect backdrop.

This completely changed my expectations of what a houseboat should be like. BEAUTIFUL. Very clean and comfortable. Fully stocked kitchen and so much storage space

There is a private dock, a grill, and many other amenities, which you can see on the Airbnb page for the boat's reservation.
