28 Houseboats That Will Make You Want To Float Away

Houseboats are one of the most peaceful vacation retreats. You really can “leave all your troubles behind.” (The swim really discourages unwanted visitors.) You really should do this at least once in your life. You won’t regret it! We did it a few years ago and it was the best! Our boat wasn’t like any of these but it did have a waterslide. These boats are awesome! #7 even has a garage for a boat and #8 is 4 stories high! I wonder how many you could sleep comfortably in there?!

This Renovated Cave In France Cost $1.34

Talk about bargain shopping. Alexis Lamoureux and Lotte van Reil sure got a deal on this run down cave. It hadn’t been lived in since the 11th century and was quite a mess; that’s probably why they only had to pay $1.34 for it! What a diamond in the rough. They turned it into a luxurious home that anyone would love to own. I love the way they kept the originality of the place while fixing it up. (P.s. For the next time you’re in France, it’s on Airbnb.)

glass wall swimming

Right from the start, these pools left me amazed and searching for my passport. When can I head out to Turkey? St. Lucia? Australia? Yup. I need to jump in these pools. Don’t worry if international travel isn’t your thing. Head over to Texas, Colorado, or Las Vegas! It’s hot and the kiddie pool in the yard is not going to cut it, not after seeing these. Which pool is your favorite?

lake house design and decor ideas

The absolute best vacation we ever went on was with a group of friends and we stayed at a remote lake house in the Adirondack mountains. My dream is to some day own a lake home of our own and I am already dreaming of how I would decorate.

I am not sure what design we would like to go with. My taste is more towards the rustic and log cabin. My husband would prefer a more modern and sleek design. There’s something magical about sitting around a huge firepit right on the beach and chatting the night away with friends and family.

I found an amazing collection of design ideas for you to browse. You can check them out over here at Houzz…
