Parking is also available for $27/day cash at the marina.

The Experience:

Staying on a houseboat in Boston is truly a unique experience.

The boat is in a protected part of the marina, but there can be some occasional movement during the day when boats pass by. At night the waters are very calm and some guests even find that a bit of gentle swaying relaxes them and makes for a very restful sleep.

After a long day of touring the city there is nothing better than relaxing on your own private sun deck with a cold drink in hand, listening to the soothing sounds of the ocean as you enjoy the fantastic view of Boston's city skyline!

So come join us and float all your cares away on a SleepAfloat managed houseboat in Boston!

Well taken care of

  • 5 of 5
We booked a stay on one of the boats Ryan manages for our stay in Boston. The night before we were to arrive, Ryan called to say they had a problem on that boat - a careless city-bred customer did not follow the "only toilet paper" rule and stuffed the toilets - and we could not stay there. Ryan offered us a 4* hotel stay in the harbor, or 1 night at the hotel and 3 nights at another boat. We accepted the latter as we do NOT like hotels (which is why we work with vacation rentals in the first place!). The hotel was fine and Ryan took care of valet parking for our car and the next day we transferred to another boat that another couple manages. Our stay there was superb and we have reviewed that wonderful boat and the couple who manages it on another site. We are writing here to say that Ryan made every effort to make our stay everything we wished it could be and we are very grateful. You can trust that you will be well taken care of, whatever happens. We had a wonderful boat-stay and would recommend utilizing houseboats and yachts for your vacations in harbor cities.

Great rental! Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a fabulous time on board Orion! We actually booked two boats for our family to stay on. This one as well as the larger boat the White Elephant. Even though the weather was still a bit chilly we enjoyed our time lounging on the roof deck while the sun was out. The boat itself is a little bit older but has a lot of charm and was spacious enough for our family of four. I loved that we had our own kitchen to cook and eat in. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to stay in downtown Boston.
