Many people picture weekend getaways or family vacations centered around water. But what if your vacation home wasn’t just near water, it was on water?
Harbor Cottage Houseboats is known for creating beautiful, spacious, floating homes. One of their most impressive designs is their 2-story cottage houseboat. That’s two stories of home, along with a full outdoor deck with seating area, floating on Lake Cumberland in Kentucky.
The gorgeous houseboat is located at Lee’s Ford Marina which is essentially a giant floating resort. “Life is Better at Lee’s Ford” is their motto and it certainly would be if you’re staying in this impressive floating cottage.
Sleeping 8 people, boasting spacious bathrooms, and plenty of outdoor space, this 2-story cottage houseboat is the envy of all marina go-ers.
What makes it so special? Let’s go inside.
Walking into the main living area, you’re greeted by lofty, vaulted ceilings made of gorgeous wood.
The living room has plenty of large windows that let in an ample amount of natural light, no matter the weather. The beautiful ceiling fan keeps air circulating throughout the space.
Looking back from the living room, the space flows into the kitchen. Perfect for entertaining guests.
The kitchen has plenty of counter space and also has full-size appliances for cooking family meals. The wood panel ceiling flows throughout the first floor.
Downstairs, there is also a full-size bathroom with shower.
The seahorse wallpaper gives it a vintage feel. Plenty of counter space for toiletries as well.
Also downstairs is a spacious bedroom with room for a queen bed.
More natural light is let in through the giant windows in the downstairs bedroom.
Heading upstairs, you’ll reach a landing loft to look down below at the living space and out to the water.
The landing has enough space to place a twin bed or a sleeper couch for extra guests. More windows add extra light to the bright space.
Another bathroom (not pictured) and bedroom are located on the second story of the floating home.
A ceiling fan in the bedroom keep the air cool and flowing for a restful night’s sleep, waking up naturally with the sun through the large window.
