Parking is also available for $27/day cash at the marina.
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 SleepAfloat managed houseboat!

Guestbook comments from the manager
Excellent - we're already looking at SleepAfloat in other cities, and would definitely be back on White Elephant when we're back in Boston. So much more character and atmosphere than a bland hotel room. The SleepAfloat staff helped us every step of our stay - from Marcia with planning and reservations, JJ helping us set up a venue for a wedding get-together, and John helping us and checking on us during our stay. This is the best kept secret in Boston...
