Overview

About the property

2 bedroom houseboat with all of the amenities

Pet Friendly, Super Convenient, Spacious Enough for the Whole Family!

The Aries is a 2 bedroom houseboat between the downtown Baltimore neighborhoods of Fells Point and Canton, docked at the Lighthouse Point Marina. Beautiful views of Baltimore's Harbor from the top deck! The boat is within walking distance to the grocery store, liquor store, water taxi, and many restaurants. She has been specifically built for and designed with renters in mind!

Built in 2011, the interior is spacious and efficiently laid out with relaxing dining and living space, plus a large top deck for grilling and great views. There are two private bedrooms - the master with a queen size bed (and a full glass window for water views while laying in bed!) and the second with a full size bed.

The living room includes a full-size pull out couch, comfortable seating, and a 40" flat screen TV with DVD player. The full kitchen includes a stove, microwave, and oven top, complete with cookware and serving-ware for entertaining. Enjoy your meals at the counter bar, kitchen table, or seated on the top deck!

The bathroom was designed to allow use of both the toilet area and shower independently of one another. There is a pocket door dividing the room to allow full access.

All bookings are provided one complimentary parking space in the marina parking lot. Additional parking can be paid for as you enter and leave the same lot.

Additional Notes:

* Please note, the houseboat does not have engines and cannot be used to travel out into the Harbor.

* The maximum number of guests on the boat is SIX (6). This includes those who spend the night and visit during the day.

* Dogs are welcome, but may require an additional fee, depending on the number and breed. We love our dog on vacation with us, and this is a very pet-friendly marina, just keep in mind that you will be staying on a boat which is located a short walk away from an area where the dog can relieve itself, and they will most likely need to be carried on and off the boat.

* We, Joe's Boats, are a paying customer of the marina where the Aries houseboat is docked. In order to be able to operate our rentals, we must maintain a good standing with the marina. This is a vacation rental meant for a relaxing weekend with friends and family – this is not a party boat.

* The refundable security deposit is based on adherence to the terms and conditions in our Rental Agreement.

Great

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying on the boat. For us, at 74 years old, the distance from the parking lot to the boat was pretty far. The beds were very comfortable. We were disappointed with the Comcast reception and the fact that the bedroom tv didn't work. Overall, it's a great place to stay.

The only place to stay in Baltimore, Hands down the best, Jeff, Lee and JP our dog

  • 5 of 5

I was born and raised in the Canton area of Baltimore. This houseboat was the best place I have ever stayed at when visiting my hometown!!!! Everything from check in to check out was easy. The houseboat offers so much more than a hotel room. The location is in Canton which is very trendy, friendly and very pet friendly. The boat was very spacious and well equipped. The free parking was convenient and an added bonus!. There were several nearby local restaurants within walking distance. We stayed on Aries for 11 nights and could have stayed longer. The upstairs deck is awesome had friends for lunch and they enjoyed the view, and not bad for evening cocktails!! The owners are very responsive and check with you via text message to make sure you are having a great time. The marina is great and fun. We were lucky enough to have The Pride Of Baltimore 2 Dock in the marina for a boat parade and got to sail on one of the boast to the Inner Harbor. If you have any doubts about renting this property for a vacation or getaway for get them. I promise you will not be disappointed! I hope to come back soon

Aries Houseboat Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a great spot to stay and have relatively easy access to many of Baltimore's downtown destinations. Good restaurants within easy walking distance made it a plus. We ended up leaving our car parked for most of our stay and just used Uber to get around to avoid the parking hassles. The harbor water taxi dock is close by and easy to use as well, especially going over to Fort McHenry.

Our greeter Ethel was outstanding, ensuring that we were all set up when we checked in so we had zero issues during our stay. I would recommend staying on the Aries to anyone, we had a great time.

Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

Three friends getting together for a weekend and we couldn't have asked for a better place! We took one walk into the inner harbor-but other than that we pretty much just hung out on the boat! Beds were comfortable, kitchen was well stocked, and the living area was big enough to not feel cramped! Chrissy checked on us each day to make sure everything was going well -and we had no problems! The upper deck was great to sit and we even ate all our meals up there! Thanks again!

Why Joe chose Canton

Joe's Boats, LLC was created in 2012 to serve customers as a Baltimore vacation and business destination. We've hosted guests from all over the US - and Australia, Germany, Korea, Canada, and elsewhere! Local Marylanders have also found Joe's Boats to be a unique way to celebrate anniversaries or bring the kids for a hometown tourist staycation.

Over the years we've owned and managed a few different boats. As we continue to grow and refine our business, we hope that you will let us show you the awesomeness of spending time rocking on the water!
