Looking for houseboat rentals for large groups? No problem. Each of the boats in our Presidential Series is a stately 75-feet long by 16-feet wide and can sleep up to 14 people comfortably. These vessels are the epitome of luxury, earning our fleet the reputation as the finest rental units in the Southeastern U.S., and earning Almost Home the reputation as the best place to rent a houseboat.

So, if you’ve been wondering where to rent a houseboat this summer, look no more. Here’s what you’ll get with a private houseboat rental from Almost Home:

Our Presidential Series rental units feature 16' x 75' luxury houseboats. Our boats are absolutely the finest rental units available on any lake in the Southern U.S. Check out the lengthy list of amenities below.

A List of Key Amenities

Unparalleled outdoor fun

Let’s face it, houseboats exist so you and your friends can play on the water to your heart’s content. Whether you like to fish off the deck, pursue the perfect cannonball, or just swim the day away, there’s no better vacation for those who love to be on and in the water.

Every one of our luxury houseboats is built for fun in the sun! At each end of the boat, you’ll find cozy outdoor decks that hover right above the water. The aft deck has a spiral staircase leading to the grand rooftop deck with a 25-foot party canopy. There you’ll enjoy comfortable patio furniture for lounging, sun-bathing, snacking, or relaxed sight-seeing.

When it comes time to actually get in the water, you have all sorts of options. Each boat has a large swim deck with a ladder for getting in and out of the lake. The rooftop deck has a fabulous waterslide for launching you and your friends right into the water!

Luxurious comfort

On the inside, each of our boats is like a luxury apartment. Each vessel boasts six private bedrooms with queen beds, with an additional queen sleeper sofa should you need a little more space. The beds are equipped for the perfect night’s sleep, with pillows, comforters, sheets, and blankets that will send you into dreamland.

There are two full baths with showers onboard and a separate vanity sink in the cuddy cabin. Towels and washcloths are included, so don’t feel like you need to pack your own.

The galley rivals any kitchen in a full-size home. It features a 21.5 cubic-foot refrigerator, a four-burner cooktop stove/oven, a large microwave, a trash compactor, a dishwasher, and a 15lb clear icemaker. It also comes fully stocked with all the dishware you’ll need, so there’s no need for you to bring paper plates and plastic cups. And if you decide a summer BBQ is the perfect touch for your dream vacation, just step outside and fire up the large Holland gas grill. There’s nothing quite like cooking hot dogs in the middle of a lake!

Of course, it can get awfully hot out on Lake Ouachita in the summer. Not to worry … the 15KW Westerbeke generator easily powers a 3.5-ton central air conditioner to keep your indoor space at a comfortable temp (there’s also central heat, in case it gets chilly at night).


Of course, no houseboat party is complete without the right music. We’ve got you covered there as well. Each boat has an AM/FM radio, as well as a CD stereo for cranking your favorite tunes.

When it comes time to settle in at night, we’re sure you’ll enjoy the 42-inch flat screen TV . We even offer a Satellite TV package that includes local channels. No need to miss out on the news just because you’re on the greatest vacation ever. And best of all, you can enjoy all this from the extra-large living area just off the galley.

Finally, if you’re seeking the ultimate relaxation experience, try jumping in the hot tub that sits atop the roof top deck. It holds 4 to 6 people and is the perfect way to both start and end your day!
