In celebration of the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary, Forever Resorts is introducing the newest iteration of the popular “glamping” phenomenon with its Scenic and Savory Houseboat Excursion, to be held on Lake Mead April 29 through May 1, 2016. This exclusive, intimate experience pairs houseboating on Lake Mead’s picturesque blue waters surrounded by varicolored desert landscapes with an immersive culinary weekend presented by two of Las Vegas’ most talented chefs. The trip includes a two-night, three-day stay aboard one of Forever Resorts’ 70-foot houseboats, departing from Callville Bay Resort and Marina. Houseboats will come equipped with private staterooms, two bathrooms, full kitchens, spacious living areas, satellite television and rooftop sundecks with hot tubs.
All meals, snacks and beverages will be expertly prepared by Chefs Purdy and Alana, who will also conduct cooking lessons for participants. In a departure from the typical DIY-style houseboating experience, the Scenic and Savory Excursion includes all meal preparation and clean-up, as well as the marina crew to pilot the boat and tie it down securely so guests can simply kick back and relax.
Limited to just 12 participants, the Scenic and Savory Houseboat Excursion is priced at $4,110 per person based on double occupancy, all taxes, gratuities and fuel included. To secure the experience as a private event, the cost for up to 12 participants is $42,240. Power boats and personal watercraft are available for rental at an additional charge.
