I don't know about you, but I prefer to spend my summer days by, and in, the water. Whether it be in a pool or sitting on a lake, I don't care, I just need a quick dip in the water to help me cool off.

My summer vacations are usually spent at my family's cabin in Wisconsin, but my husband has been begging for years to rent a houseboat somewhere, and I just found the perfect one for us to stay at in East Dubuque this summer courtesy of Airbnb.

Floating Cabin Airbnb in East Dubuque, Illinois

In case you are not familiar with what a houseboat is, let me be clear, it is not a yacht. Houseboats look more like a house than a boat, and most of them float on the water but do not move. If you're looking for a relaxing vacay that's literally a jump away from the water, this new, luxurious Floating Cabin Airbnb on the Mississippi River in East Dubuque may just be your perfect summer getaway.

This Floating Cabin has 3 bedrooms...

This awesome Floating Cabin Airbnb is located on the water in the Millenium Marina in East Dubuque, Illinois, and is located next to a restaurant that also rents out kayaks and other watercraft. One uncovered boat slip is included with this Airbnb rental, so if you have a boat, bring that too, because this houseboat doesn't move.
