Part of the joy of renting a houseboat is the feeling that you’re truly getting away from it all. Don’t let time-consuming meal prep get in the way of enjoying your every second of your adventure!

At Cottonwood Cove, we want you to have a relaxing, invigorating time on your houseboat, so we’ve pulled together some quick and easy lunch tips to try out during your next trip to Lake Mohave. Feel free to give us a call, we’d love to offer more tips and help you make your houseboat rental getaway an excellent time you’ll never forget.

  1. Perfect Platter. Forget the fuss, and throw together a generous lunch platter featuring plenty of snacks to choose from. Include protein rich bites, like cheese, nuts, and meats, as well as an array of fresh fruit and vegetables, crackers or bread, and a hummus or bean dip, along with a creamy dressing for the veggies. Your friends and family can load up a plate and enjoy snacking and relaxing while taking in the gorgeous views from the deck.
  2. Dock and Dine. Skip the prep and clean up, and dock your boat at the marina and enjoy a meal at the Cottonwood Cove Café. Offering family-friendly entrees in a beautiful, comfortable setting, you can also choose to call ahead to inquire about catering opportunities. Either way, you’ll be sure to enjoy a relaxing waterside meal created just for you and your loved ones.
  3. DIY Sandwich Bar. Offering a range of slices of bread, cheeses, meats, spreads, and veggies can be the perfect option for a group outing with family and friends. If you’ve got little ones in tow, be sure to keep the PB&J on hand, while adults can enjoy a bit more sophisticated fare, like hummus and cucumber or classic ham and cheese. Encourage your guests to bring their favorite sandwich fixings to enjoy a fun and easy potluck, and be sure to keep plenty of cold beverages on hand to refresh your guests.
