Where Are The Seattle Floating Homes Located?

Where Are The Seattle Floating Homes Located?

It seems pretty obvious to most of us where they are, but we are local and people outside of Seattle really don’t know. Many out of state visitors come here only with the Sleepless In Seattle frame of reference for where Seattle houseboats actually are in Seattle. Any Seattle local who has seen this 1993 Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan movie (which I affectionately call the STALKER movie) knows that when Tom sets out in his little row boat from his Lake Union houseboat, he won’t end up in the Puget Sound at Alki any time soon.

This is why people want to know: Where are Seattle floating homes located in Seattle?

It is important to first know that Seattle houseboats used to be a lot more prevalent in the city even being in Lake Washington along the shores of Madison Park just to name one spot, but also along the Duwamish River down in the South Park area.  Over the last 100 years they have dwindled for various reasons which is probably a good idea for me to write a series of at least 10 posts.  The city has gone from thousands of floating homes and shacks to a little over 500 in present day. These 500 or so surviving Seattle floating homes (and some new construction) are located on Lake Union and Portage bay in various locations.
