at Callville Bay 2013

Number of Days/Nights


$581 per day



Rates and season dates subject to change.


Start & Return Time

Houseboat boarding is between 8AM & 10AM on the trip's start date  and houseboats are due back by 2PM on their date of return. For example, a 3-day rental beginning Friday would be due back by 2PM on Sunday.

Reservation Deposit

A first day's rental deposit, prior to any applicable discounts or  promotions, is required to confirm your reservation if made before 60  days from departure date, and will be applied directly toward the rental rate. A rental term is generally a minimum of 2 days depending on boat  model and season. Some models are only available for a 3 or 7-day  minimum.

Early Boarding Option

Take command of your houseboat the evening before departure by selecting the "Early Board" option when available . You'll spend the first night  on the boat at the marina - with the opportunity to be one of the first  out on the lake in the morning after your orientation.

Trip Cancellation Protection

Plans change. Emergencies happen. Trip Cancellation Protection is a  valuable option for groups that may need to make last-minute changes to  their reservations. This option protects your vacation investment in  case of an emergency resulting in the cancellation of your rental.

When you purchase this protection, your houseboat deposit and rental payment become fully refundable if you cancel your trip due to  an emergency, whether it is for medical, professional or personal  reasons.

Trip Cancellation may only be purchased 60+ days  prior to the start of your trip and no more than 7 days from when your  reservation is made.

Trip Cancellation Protection is not available inside of 60  days from arrival at the marina and cannot be canceled or transferred  once purchased. If your reservation dates change, and Trip Cancellation  Protection has been purchased , this protection cannot be applied to the  new reservation within 60 days of your trip.

Rental boats depart with a full tank of fuel. It is the responsibility of the renter to return the rental boat full.

Pet Policy

We understand that pets are part of the family and that leaving the  little guy (or gal) at home while you're on vacation is not a great  option all the time. As such, pets are allowed aboard your houseboat for a $100 non-refundable pet fee, per pet.

Rates along with Terms and Conditions are subject to change without notice, and National Park Service and/or the applicable state agency's approval.
