The 70-foot Millennium is one of the bigger boats in the fleet at Callville Bay Resort & Marina and features everything necessary for a luxurious yet casual stay on Lake Mead:

  • 4 bedrooms with all the linens
  • 2 bathrooms complete with towels
  • DirecTV (there's even a TV in the Captain's quarters as well as one in the living room)
  • Sound system/stereo/DVD player
  • Upper deck with deck chairs
  • Wet bar with stools
  • Hot tub
  • Water slide from the upper deck to the water below
  • Full service kitchen (guests supply their own food; everything else is provided)
  • Air conditioning and heat
  • GPS

The experience itself is phenomenal. There's something to do out on the water any time of the year: swimming, diving, boating, fishing, water skiing, just floating along and relaxing in the water.

The pilot can operate the boat from inside the cabin or up top under the canopy, with the open air blowing as the boat cuts gently across the open waters of Lake Mead.

With map in hand, it's easy to spend a few hours exploring Lake Mead's shoreline and inlets, perhaps even spotting some big horn sheep along the rocky coast, and still leave hours for anchoring in one of the coves and playing in the clear lake water.
