Stay Right on the Water at Lake Powell in a Houseboat
One of the truly incredible opportunities in Page! You can rent a houseboat from 50 feet to 75 feet in length. Houseboats come equipped with a water slide, barbeque grill, full kitchen, bedrooms, and more. What exactly is a houseboat? It is a luxury boat that provides all of the amenities of home while cruising across Lake Mead. Houseboats are designed to be fuel-efficient and have minimal impact on the environment. You will enjoy the freedom to visit parts of the lake that you choose, and you will have almost private settings from which to enjoy the water, sky, and desert landscape. This can be an ideal vacation option for smaller groups of perhaps 8, 10, 12 or more people. You can even choose to add on kayaks or a personal watercraft. Common rental periods are from 3 days to 7 days, and often between $1,000-$2,000 per day, the total for 6-12 people. It can be an affordable and wonderful option for smaller groups of family and friends.
Street of the Little Motels
This is fun! You can stay in a charming, vintage motel in the “Old Quarter” of Page. There is a series of small, nostalgic motels along 8th Avenue. This section of town originally housed the workers that build the nearby Glen Canyon Dam and Rainbow Arch Bridge. The quaint mid-century motels offer a comfortable and historic step back into the past. 8th Avenue has now been named “Street of the Little Motels” and offers visitors an enjoyable alternative to newer, chain properties. These little hideaways just ooze character. The motels are independently owned and operated. The street is just a couple of blocks off the main street. It is in close walking distance to restaurants, grocery stores, and the main business section of town. Motel names include Red Rock Motel, Lulu’s Sleep Ezze Motel, Debbie’s Hide A Way Motel, and the Lake Powell Motel. These motels are an interesting and affordable option for accommodations in the Page area.
