The Experience: What's it like saying on a houseboat? The boat is in a protected part of the marina, but there is some occasional movement during the day when boats pass by. It is usually very calm during the night, although some guests find a bit of gentle swaying is relaxing and can lead to a very restful sleep.

Guestbook comments from the manager
This was the perfect place to stay! It is very very private and secure. The countertops are granite and the bed is a memory foam mattress. It is important to speak to Jack, the property manager, upon arrival. He was informational not only about the houseboat, but about the area. With the proximity to the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, it is much more quiet than we expected. We never heard any bridge traffic. The local ballpark had fireworks the first night we were there, and we could see everything from the aft bow. We shopped at the Reading Terminal Market and cooked on the houseboat. This gave us the grand opportunity to sit out on the covered deck and eat breakfast in serenity. The kitchen has ample pots & pans, silverware and dishes to cook with and have a nice dinner. There is fast WiFi access on the boat, and cable for the television. The towels were very fluffy and better than hotel towels. We loved it and would do it again in a heartbeat!!
