Is it a cottage? Is it a boat? Why, Superman, it's both! Jokes aside, this is quite a magnificent little dwelling. Within this houseboat's 520 square feet (48.31 square meters), guests will find two floors' worth of amusement, relaxation and comfort.
Enjoy the summery harbor views in style as you settle yourself in your own private deck. There's a gas grill right by those tables if you want to get a barbecue going.
But the fun doesn't stop when you enter this humble abode. With an open-plan design that incorporates a living room, dining area and kitchen with bar bench, guests can effortlessly take the party inside after sundown.
Not feeling in the party mood? Then snuggle up in the living room – it has all the homely facilities anyone needs to feel at ease.
If you want some low-key dinnertime entertainment, the widescreen TV is not too far away from the sleek wooden dining table.
Stainless steel appliances are the norm in this houseboat's kitchen.
It includes a lively arrangement of classic cupboards, modern sink and wall decor with a witty sense of humor.

Master Bathroom

This cottage comes with two bathrooms, which are a masterpiece of luxury in their own right.
The master bathroom's stylish faucet and its accompanying wooden-block soap dispenser are practically a match made in heaven.
Make the journey downstairs to find the five bedrooms. The bedding is all about royalty: Three of the rooms have queen size beds whereas the others offer king mattresses.
As you would expect in a brilliantly decorated vessel, each room shines through with its uniqueness. The one shown above cradles guests to sleep with soothing vibes that come from a painting with boats drifting along the sunset.
Another bedroom helps guests feel reinvigorated by Mother Nature even when they set our compasses toward the seven seas.
Beyond natural adornments, the room features stylish shelving space that surrounds this comfy bed too.

The marina's catchy slogan is right on the money. With stunning floating homes like these, it's hard not to think of Lee's Ford Marina as the place to sail into whenever you want to live it up in the harbor.

Today's houseboat voyage will take us along the Canadian harbor. This is where we'll encounter the Serenity floating home, which peacefully resides in a houseboat community in Toronto's Bluffers Park marina.
