Holiday Harbor gets a 5+ star review! Every single staff member we encountered was extremely friendly and I wish I remembered all of their names as each one deserves recognition for a job beyond well done. The drivers that shuttled us up …
Where do I start? The rental and return process is super smooth. The boats are in great shape and clean. The staff are professional and super nice 100% of the time. Never had a bad experience and we look forward to every Shasta boat …
Great staff! Gas is beyond expensive and air conditioners are pitiful so plan accordingly. We had the best time though. Hoping to do this again soon!
everyone is friendly and helpful
Great service,excellent prices and reliable boats
It was great. Everyone was very nice.
Great customer service everyone was very nice and helpful!
Holiday Harbor is the Best
The staff were really friendly and accommodating. We rented two boats for a family reunion. We had ages 3 to 85 and everyone had a wonderful time!
We had a wonderful stay on the Monarch, the boat was clean fully equipped with all the essentials. The staff was friendly and helpful. We highly recommend Holiday Harbor and can’t wait to book our next vacation.
Best prices on the lake. Very helpful service while on the water and each service boat comes stocked with ice.
This experience provided the best escape for our covid 19 quarantine club. Thank you to the HH staff. I was asking the maid some questions and she was very polite and knowledgeable and didn't seem to mind being bugged. The office staff and …
Great Marina with good service. You can rent a houseboat for any budget. Most houseboats are older but well maintained, and priced right. I've used HH for my past 2 houseboating vacations and plan on going back to them next time.
We had a great experience with Holiday Harbor. Your organization of getting people on the boat was incredible. We dealt with Lisa for reservations she is an awesome individual and so are all the ladies it check in. We have a friend who had …
Had a wonderful time and the staff is fantastic and very helpful. The two things that weren’t good was the hard bunk in the back that was ripped and torn. Needs to be replaced. The other thing was cob webs and dead bugs in them. Also dust …
We loved our houseboat trip! Holiday Harbor staff was very friendly from the reservation process to the eventual return of the boat. The boat itself was wonderful as well.
Great trip as always. The helpful and genuine assistance by the staff always there. Sammie, Dan (houseboat tech) and Rusty all were particularly awesome. Thank you!
We had a few issues at Holiday Harbor, but their excellent customer service made it all ok. We arrived around 5:30 pm and were to be the last boat out, but it wouldn't start. We had to spend the night at the marina to wait until the …
I would have preferred that Holiday Harbor had enforced mask-wearing unless actually on a houseboat. But — some of the staff did wear masks, and the shuttle driver did — thank you! And the customer service was absolutely excellent. Was a …
Thorough walkthrough of the boat prior to heading out so we knew the ins and outs. Our boat ended up getting beached so we called them and they had someone pull us out no problem! Very friendly staff and reasonably priced. Would def …
Way beyond our expectations. The boat was in great condition and the employees very attentive and helpful.
Everyone was nice and friendly from start to finish! The Premier boat worked just fine for my family of 8. Would come back and visit again!
The staff were amazing. The boat was perfect. We plan on going back in Sept.
My family and I had a great time on our recent trip to Holiday Harbor. We came up for the 4th of July weekend . We got a rental houseboat called the "Diplomat". It was the smallest one they offer yet still big enough for our small group of …
The team made it so easy getting on the boat and getting off. They do a great job managing all the people and traffic on a busy weekend. We already booked a houseboat for next year!
We had a great first time house boating experience with this harbor. It will be the first place we check for availability every year from now on. Staff were friendly. Boat was super clean. All amenities worked well.
I've gone here 2 years in a row now. I won't go anywhere else, the folks here at Holiday Harbor are excellent and service is as well. Just ask for Carolyn, she'll help you out!
Holiday Harbor employees were all so friendly and accommodating. We will definitely rent houseboats here again.
Book early, your vacation of a life time!
Holiday Harbor is a great place to rent a house boat. The main reason we would come back is the staff and the overall upbeat attitude at the harbor. They made the transfer from your car to the water and back as easy as possible. Their staff…
This was our first housboating experience and absolutely loved it! The entire experience was SUPERB!!! We checked in July 3rd, which was very busy, the staff made the whole process as seamless as possible. The entire staff was friendly and …
Had a very fun time on the Marquis houseboat from Holiday Harbor. We were lucky enough to fit into the Value Week, which made the value of our money go farther. Everyone was very helpful, in the office and on the docks. Best place to get …
The staff at this marina is absolutely fantastic. They were very communicative throughout the entire process from reservation to final boat inspection. Friendly service, boat was equipped with what we needed and everyone had a great time. …
We loved loved loved our experience with Holiday Harbor and loved our houseboat...came home and booked another and have already recommended it to friends. What a great business.
The price, staff, and equipment are the important things about Holiday Harbor that keep me coming back to them for houseboating trips. I haven’t used another marina to compare.

I love house boating on lake shasta and Holiday Harbor makes boat pick up and drop off easy. We got out to our "camp spot" and noticed the swim ladder was broken on our boat, the "fixer boat" came right out and fixed it for us.
Great service. Friendly Smiles. Competitive Rates. Clean and well maintained houseboats. Definitely recommend.

Great people and people make the difference!!! Great lake too!
The houseboat has a electrical issue that ended up being old batteries. The technician drove out to were we were docked and replaced with all new batteries. From there it was smooth sailing and everyone has a great trip. We will definitely …
Best experience ever! The staff was amazing. I will be coming back every year!
We had an amazing time at Holiday Harbor! The staff was amazing, they all went above and beyond for our pleasure. I would definitely recommend to anyone!
The best family vacation ever! It was cheaper than Disney and the children had so much more fun. Driving the boat was easy and you didn't need any special license. Hands down we will go back. Kind, fast and very helpful staff. Shasta Lake …
From the beginning of planning our houseboat trip to the end was excellent to work with staff at Holiday Harbor! ❤️
Thank you all for a very memorable mini vacation!
We will be back soon!
Clean and super helpful staff. Our second time in a few months the staff make you comfortable and at home.
Needed to get away from quarantine, getting out on the lake with the Family for a few days was perfect. We like to camp but this had a lot of additional amenities – full stove, 2 fridges/freezers, gas barbecue. A few days of good eating, …
We rented the Marquis for a group of 4. It was more space than we needed, but it was quite nice. Everything was very well run, everyone was very helpful. My friends are sailors, but it was our first time navigating a houseboat and the …
Holiday Harbor has been a great experience. They are very helpful and our boat was wonderful.
Response from business owner
We are very happy you enjoyed your trip! Thank you
Always a pleasure to rent from holiday harbor
Jamie, Fay, and Lisa were great help and made everything a wonderful weekend. Those girls know how to set you up with a houseboat. Triple A service. The guys that help launch and manage the boat ramp were great.
Can't believe how nice the staff is... from the store to the docks, Danni and Lesa were the best. 😁😁😁
Our first houseboat experience was perfect. The boat was so accommodating and came with everything we needed for an ideal getaway. The staff at Holiday Harbor were all so helpful and pleasant. We made so many fun memories and this was …
Good location and reasonably priced compared to other marinas. Worked great for us as a couple and our boxer dog.
We had a reservation when Covid 19 started shutting down California. Holiday Harbor worked with us and allowed us to rebook after things settled down a bit. That was the first good experience with them. Everytime I called, the person i …
Rented a houseboat last September after Labor Day and it couldn't have been a better week. Houseboat is well stocked. Will be back this year!
I have been renting houseboats on lake shasta for thirty years. The Crew at Holiday Harbor go out of their way to make your experience seamless. Its all about getting you on the boat and out on the Lake as quick and hassle free as possible…
The boat appears exactly as advertised online. The lake is beautiful and the staff at Holiday Harbor was kind, helpful and fun. We'll be coming back next summer! The boat is fairly easy to manage so long as you listen to instructions before…
House boating has become our yearly vacation for the past 30 years ,and Holiday Harbor is the best resort. Friendly staff starting with the lady's at check in to the guys on the dock. They have a size boat to fit everyone's needs. My wife …
The whole family and some friends had such a nice time out on the houseboat. We want to go again. Although we lost cell service in certain areas. Got to keep the kids happy.
Rented a houseboat for 8 fishermen in April and had an absolute blast! Everything was perfect!
The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have a shuttle, which is great. The place is on a hill, so access to the lake is not easy. There are alot of stairs! We were RV camping. Shuttle takes you to the Cavern boat. They have a nice …
One area of major concern is the parking area. Resort has an off site parking area. Unfortunately for us, someone helped themselves to the tools in the toolbox of our truck. It would be helpful if the resort reminded everyone to make sure …
Great time.Staff was superb.Will do it again for sure.
Great resort. Houseboat rental went smoothly. Staff go out of the way to be accommodating. We'll be back!
Their house boats, jet skis, and patio boats are all in such good condition! Great staff, great prices, I can’t wait to rent again! FUN!!
Andrea and Angie were amazing at the Toy Box rentals! They went out of their way to make sure we had a great experience and told us the best spots for our family! Thank you so much!
We had an amazing 4 days on the lake. Everyone was very nice and accommodating even switching out a houseboat for us when we had a little mechanical problem instead of making us wait while it was getting fixed. Check them out for your next …
We have rented from Holiday Harbor several times. We just spent 5 days on one of their houseboats and had a great experience. The staff is always so courteous, helpful and nice. Our boat was very clean and in good shape. Can’t wait to visit…

We had a wonderful time! Everything worked great on the boat. The staff was so helpful in teaching us how to use the boat, drive it etc. The person getting us registered was genuinely interested in us having a great trip and not just …
This is the third time we've rented a houseboat from Holiday Harbor and each time we've had a great time and experience with them. The staff is always friendly and helpful!
The Best place on the lake to rent a houseboat
We love Holiday Harbor on Shasta Lake. We’ve been going here for 28 years. We now travel across three states to get there each year for our annual trips.
Always great service! Great location. Although houseboats are dated, but for the price can't beat. Jet Skis are also dated. Love the staff, everybody from check in to boat service is great! I keep coming back from the time I was a teenager …
Very nice, polite, and accommodating. Highly recommend Holiday. I've been a loyal customer for over 30 years.
The folks at Holiday Harbor are among the nicest I've met. Great boat, great price, can't wait to return next year.
I cannot explain how awesome the whole entire staff is at holiday harbor! Lisa and her husband at the campgrounds have ALWAYS gone above and beyond to make everything perfect! They are both so sweet and welcoming! The staff at the marina …
Absolutely one of the best vacations we have ever had. We rented an 8 person Ambassador with a slide for all grown up kids and had a great time. We also brought along extra toys like kayaks, skis, stand up paddleboards and towables. The …
Beautiful views and scenery along Shasta Lake. The houseboat was comfortable, and clean. The staff was very nice and accommodating. We will definitely be coming back. Thanks everyone at Holiday Harbor!
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Holiday Harbor. The boats are well stocked with almost everything we needed. I only recommend bringing kitchen towels, hand soap and floatie devices like noodles. And Lake Shasta was amazing. We …
It was our first time renting a houseboat (or even driving a boat really) and our first time at Lake Shasta but the staff at Holiday Harbor made it very easy. They gave us good instructions when we checked in and then Randy on the dock was …
everyone from the office staff, guys on the docks, and the gas dock were very helpful. they helped me back my rig down that crazy busy hill to unload my ski boat and then re-load the boat at the end of the trip. thanks, to Randy and his "…
Boat was ready upon arrival, the staff even pulled boat out of harbor for us for easy departure. Boat comes supplied with most everything except food and beverage and was very easy to drive. We are planning a trip for next year with more …
Great staff led by their GM. Staff were extremely friendly and made sure our vacation was all we expected it to be. This was our third time on the lake with Holiday Harbor, all three were outstanding. We will be back.
I just finished my second annual family houseboating trip on beautiful Lake Shasta, and rented my houseboat both times at Holiday Harbor. These guys are amazing! They are super helpful and friendly, and they have great boats and equipment …
We really enjoyed our week on the Holiday Harbor houseboat. We have rented there before years ago and when we returned Holiday Harbor was where we went because they really care about their boats and their customers. We highly recommended …
Great company. Friendly and take good care of you. Recommend!
First time driving a boat, wish we had more instructions. When backing up we almost hit other boats and had to learn how to dock alone. Would have loveed more instructions on driving and docking a boat. Ppl are super nice and helpful. For …
From check-in to return everything the staff did was outstanding. We had the boat for 7 days during value week. The boat was clean and ran perfect. On the third day we were going by the dam and the low engine oil light came on. I called the…
We keep our boat here and are familiar with their excellent service so we weren’t surprised it was extended to our houseboat experience. They make you feel like family. Our radio died about 2hrs into our vacation. When we called they sent …
Just spent 8 days on the Empress. Great boat, so much room, clean, nicely laid out, nicely decorated but not so fancy that you feel bad coming in wet and sitting down. The best part of holiday harbor is the friendly staff. Everyone we had …
Every staff member did an awesome job. Always smiling and wanting to help. The boat was perfect and ran great. Thanks again and I will be back.
The boat was perfect and the lake seemed uncrowded as kids were back in school. It was the end of the busy season so I kind of expected staff to be a bit tired and annoyed with all us landlubbers after a long busy season. But not at all. …
We’ve been renting houseboats for years from Holiday Harbor on Shasta Lake and highly recommend them! We tried a competitor one time and would never do so again. Friendly knowledgeable staff from check-out to check-in, responsive crew if …
We have been house-boating on Lake Shasta for over 40 years. We have rented from Bridge Bay and Silverthorn numerous times. This was our first time renting from Holiday Harbor. We will be back to Holiday Harbor. They are now our first …
