You Can Rock To Sleep On These 4 Stunning Airbnb Houseboats In Quebec

Escape to the water with one of these rentals.
Airbnb houseboats in Quebec

With the heat once again descending on Montreal, it's the perfect time for a getaway on the water

Narcity may receive a portion of sales if you purchase something from this article, which was created independently by Narcity's editorial team just for you.

But instead of the usual rentals on Airbnb, what better way to fall asleep than listening to waves gently lapping or being lulled into a baby-like coma with the rock of a boat.

Houseboats have it all: access to the water, privacy, areas to cook your food, and a legitimate reason to wear your sailor costume. We rounded up some of the best houseboat rentals listed on Airbnb, and none of them are further than a 1.5-hour drive away from Montreal.

The Cedar


WHERE: Saint-Charles-sur-Richelieu, QC

WHY: This loft-style boat is just a few minutes drive from Montreal. The 300 square foot rental is made entirely of cedar and might be the cutest and coziest on the list. The only drawback is there is no shower on the boat.

COST: Price:$56 (sleeps 2)

The River Den


WHERE: Wakefield, QC

WHY: This cute little boat sits in a picturesque town. The boat is about as basic as you can get, with no hot water or electricity, but that just adds to the overall charm.

COST: $147

Stéphanic On The St-Laurent


WHERE: Contrecoeur, Quebec

WHY: This 27' sailboat has an enclosed cockpit which feels more like a solarium to take in the fantastic views around you. Unlike the other boats on the list, certified sailors can even take her out to sail!

COST: $60 (sleeps 5)
