Been hard to complain about the weather at Old Town Bay with temperatures staying around 30+ for the last few weeks! Hard to beat that for houseboating weather!☀️

With the water level dropping the beaches are getting bigger and the water is getting warmer🏖

With endless beaches and adventures there is something to do for everyone!

If you missed out on 2021 make sure to book early for 2022 to ensure you get the boat and dates you want!

You can find all the information and our online booking feature on our website twinanchors.com

Come experience all that Shuswap Lake has to offer aboard a Twin Anchors Houseboat!⚓️⚓️
