Ontario Wilderness Houseboat Rental

Why You'll Love It

Ontario Wilderness Houseboat's base is located in Morson on Hanson Bay at Gill's Marina on pristine Lake of the Woods. Purchase fishing licenses & equipment, bait, souvenirs and last minute items on-site at the Marina. Just 35 miles from the US border, a short drive away from amenities, but still completely secluded from all the noise of city life.

When you arrive you will be met by your hosts and our staff. We’ll help you load your things, get you acquainted with the equipment on board and be sure you’re comfortable before sending you off on the vacation of a lifetime. If you’re a first-time renter, we will ride along with you to your first stop and help you get tied up for the night. A marine radio keeps you in touch with the local weather and our base station in case there are any problems. We will help you plan your course to the best fishing spots, and show you how to best secure your craft for the night. Protected bays and islands provide calm waters and are excellent places to tie up for the evening.

You are the Captain once you've completed orientation so cruise at your own pace, stopping where and when you want! It's quite a change from the multitude of cabins, resorts, and docks found on other lakes! Cruise to relax, swim, fish, read and enjoy life in this refreshing setting. From sunrise to sunset spend the day fishing from your pick of many species including walleye, muskie, northern pike, perch and smallmouth bass! Take photographs of the wildlife, enjoy the comfort, convenience and quiet of a houseboat vacation. This really is "The Only Way to Cruise the Woods."
