2. Comfortable houseboat in a gated marina

If you are looking for a different kind of experience, why don’t you try this houseboat, also located in Richmond, Virginia.

With an almost perfect rating on Airbnb, the houseboat named GiaMaria is perfect for both a weekend getaway or even a whole week stay.

According to its host, “My plan was for the GiaMaria to offer a total living space, where you can cook a full gourmet meal and dance in the main saloon. She is not just a place to stay where you don’t know who is in the next room to you, but a safe and quiet place where you can relax, stay warm or cool depending on the seasons and still get away from that “beaten path.” For all practicable purposes, you will be experiencing living in a “tiny house” but it won’t feel like it because the GiaMaria is really quite roomy.”

The houseboat can host 4 guests and starts at $113 a night.

Adding to the romantically rustic atmosphere, The Lee Gypsy Wagon is surrounded by some of the farm’s original structures that we have preserved and converted into cooking, dining, and living spaces for our guests to enjoy.”
