Need a place to stay during PGA week? How about a house in the water?

Updated: Tuesday, July 23 2013, 07:41 PM EDT

Pittsford, N.Y.-- Amy and Steve Tausch call it their summer home. They spend every weekend on their houseboat during the summer. But they are willing to give it up for one week, if the price is right.

The Tausch's are willing to rent their house in the water for 10-thousand dollars during the PGA Tournament in Pittsford next month.

There is no such thing as roughing it on board this houseboat. It has central air, two flatscreen televisions, a full kitchen and sleeps four people. It also has an upstairs party deck which can fit 15 people.

The Tausch's know how crowded it can get during a major sporting event like that. In fact they lived through it. They were married during the Ryder Cup at Oak Hill back in 1992, and had trouble finding hotel rooms for their out-of-town guests.

They said their boat on the water is as comfortable as a hotel, with a better view.

They are also throwing in a minivan, so guests have a way to get around.

The Tausch's may be alone renting out their houseboat, but many others are offering to rent their houses to out-of-towners here for the PGA.  The Tausch's said if the price was right, they would also rent their year-round home which is near the Bay in Irondequoit.

For more information on their houseboat rental, you can visit their Facebook Page, Erie Canal Houseboat Rentals.
