Kinsey Houseboats

Houseboat Rentals in Minnesota


Does it seem that on most of your vacations you’re just trading one rat race for another? This year, experience the serenity of a Minnesota wilderness vacation with a Kinsey Houseboats’ boat rental. Kinsey Houseboats is a family-owned and operated company. Since 1995, we’ve been in the business of offering breathtaking Babbitt wilderness vacations. Kinsey Houseboats lets you enjoy the unspoiled beauty of the Superior National Forest in Minnesota without leaving all the comforts of home behind.

Kinsey Houseboats has a number of house boat rental options for those trying to escape the hustle and bustle of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. Since both of the Twin Cities are just a short drive away from Babbitt, head out after lunch or be home in time for dinner and spend the day on one of our luxury boat rentals.

If you’re not sure which boat rental will best suit your purposes, don’t worry. We pride ourselves in customer service and will help you decide upon the boat rental that will give you a Minnesota vacation to remember for all the right reasons. Remember, all our houseboat rentals near Ely come with GPS navigation and 120-volt generators as standard equipment. We’re also pet friendly, so bring along your pets and forgo the expensive boarding fees.


If you have a smaller family or group, then one of our 33-foot or 36-foot houseboat rentals that sleep four and six people respectively will be just right for you. Swim, sunbathe, fish, dock the boat for a hiking trip, and enjoy other fun activities on Birch Lake MN. Then at the end of the day, you can relax knowing you have a home away from home to come back to at night. All of our houseboat rentals have a kitchen and bathroom for your convenience.


Larger groups will find that our 42-foot and 50-foot Boatel house boat rentals that sleep eight are just right for them. Our most luxurious model is The Four Queens, a spacious boat with three queen-bed staterooms and one queen-bed couch. This house boat rental also includes a roomy kitchen for cooking meals or having a quick snack.

All of our “floating lodges” offer outdoor space for you to enjoy the Birch Lake MN scenery. Dinner just tastes better when it’s made on our outside gas grill and eaten on the patio table. Our upper sun decks will let you work on your tan, snap pictures of the wildlife, and enjoy the starlit sky near Ely, MN.
