"Having houseboated along Kentucky's Lake Cumberland, I think I like Trent-Severn better. There's more here than marinas. Egan Houseboats on the Trent WaterwayHouseboaters fill their days in myriad ways; shopping, browsing art galleries, visiting Indian reservations, enjoying summer theater, cruising or just vegging out on the sundeck, anchored in the many-splendored Kawartha Lakes region". - Rick Sylvain Travel Editor, Detroit Free Press

Houseboating on the Trent-Severn is one of the top 10 waterway trips in the world. "Charming villages with a European flavor, rocky gorges and sapphire-clear forest lined lakes." "A journey of a lifetime" - National Geographic

"If this isn't boathouse heaven, it's close. The Trent-Severn is a 240 mile summer playground dotted with islands and filled with woodlands, quiet coves and pretty towns". - Detroit Free Press

"We gave our kids the choice of flying to Florida and staying in Disney World at the resort for the week or going back to your boats again for another week. There was no question about it. They only wanted to go with the boat." - Steve Procunier

"About half of Egan Houseboat Rentals' customers are first-time sailors and Ron Egan puts each new recruit through a comprehensive audio-visual training session that explains every aspect of houseboat operation. In addition, each boat has a reference manual that contains arial photos of all the waterway, along with a complete set of navigational charts.". - Leisure World

"Houseboating on the Trent is one of the most unique vacation experiences in North America - 250 miles of protected cruising. Your houseboat is a compact floating home, complete with all the comforts". - Touring Routes

"The Kawarthas are also widely known for their excellent warm water fishing and offer superb angling. Walleye (yellow pickerel to Canadians), muskellunge, smallmouth, largemouth bass and tasty yellow perch are among the most sought after quarry. September is muskie month, bass bite all summer and the sunnies practically hop right up on the deck if you offer them a worm". - Houseboat Magazine

"A Trent-Severn houseboating vacation offers a broad range of activities. Some locks are in remote sites and offer quiet, idyllic places to spend the night. Others are located in the middle of towns and provide easy access to marinas, golf courses, fast food, fancy restaurants, art galleries, shopping and sightseeing". - Pacific Yachting

Egan Houseboats on the Trent Waterway"The sun had just set and a full moon was rising over our houseboat on Pigeon Lake. A pair of loons swam by, enthralling my husband and I with their haunting calls. Then Heather, our nine year old niece who had been fishing off the end of the dock, pulled in a fighting, two pound large mouth. A beaver swam by, moonlight illuminating its head. It was the perfect beginning for our houseboat adventures". - Asbury Press

"A houseboat in Ontario's waterways is the perfect vacation". - Hamilton Spectator

"I've been twice around the world and seen 70 countries, and I've never seen anything even remotely like the Trent-Severn, either for esthetics or function". - Canadian Geographic

"The Trent also comprises three of the most sensational mega-toys that any child or adult could ever hope to witness in action... Peterborough Liftlock, the world's highest hydraulic boat lift (65 feet), Kirkfield Liftlock and the Big Chute Marine Railway. The latter, a massive wheeled carriage, transports boats up or down a 60 foot high slope of granite". - Canadian Geographic

"Tom Peters, the well known proponent of customer service, would love this company". - Great Lakes Cruiser
