What You'll Get
Even though water covers most of the earth's surface, humans spend most of their lives on land and a small portion in the air while they’re sleeping. Float on with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
$995 for the same four-day rental (a $1,999 value) or $1,999 toward any four-day houseboat rental, valid September 5–30
Metolius houseboats float vacationing clans on the calm waters of Lake Billy Chinook, surrounded by views of the Cascade Mountains and uncannily sunny skies. The water-bound domiciles come equipped with air conditioning, a barbecue, a gas stove with an oven, a walk-around deck, a gas refrigerator, and enough space to comfortably sleep 10 family members or cloning experiments gone awry.
Vacations must fit entirely within the valid dates. Customers can steer the boat anywhere on the lake, but gas is not included with the Groupon. Customers also can apply this Groupon toward a seven-day rental if they wish.

About Cove Palisades Resort and Lake Billy Chinook Houseboats
Basalt spires, Cascade Mountain peaks, and steep canyon walls tower around. Eagles fly overhead and 32-inch bull trout glint in the sunlight as they jump. Smells of grilled bass ride breezes to nostrils on 72 miles of surrounding shoreline. Cove Palisades Resort and Marina puts friends and families in the middle of this scene, floating them out onto Lake Billy Chinook in rental pontoons, WaveRunners, and party barges. The fleet's fishing boats give anglers an advantage as they hunt for rainbow trout, and houseboats grant luxurious respite for those weary of the poor diving opportunities and general lack of mermaids offered by land living.
To round out its offerings and let adventurers dry off, Cove Palisades Resort and Marina also facilitates activities such as hiking and camping. More than 10 miles of nearby trails grant photographers ample fodder for creating landscape images and let ornithologists fill up their journals with notes on plumage and bird phone numbers.
