“As a 10 year old resident, I can share with anyone who wants to listen to all the wonderful aspects of this lifestyle,” Doucet told blogTO.

Houseboat Gloria has a small but bright living space.

There are challenges to living on the water including the use of bubblers during the winter to keep water from freezing around the house and the cost of mooring fees (around $ 800 per month).

But for people who choose this lifestyle, these challenges are counterbalanced by the proximity to hiking trails, beaches, and nearby lifestyle.

“Ask anyone who the best neighbors in the world are and they will tell you that boaters and boaters live the resort lifestyle in a marina and this marina is no exception,” said Doucet.
