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 new 2 bedroom houseboat between the trendy Fells Point and Canton neighborhoods located at the Lighthouse Point Marina. Beautiful views of Fells Point and Canton from the top deck. The boat is within walking distance to the grocery store, liquor store, and many bars and 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. A washer and dryer are provided in the master bedroom.

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. A washer and dryer are provided in the master bedroom.

All bookings are provided one parking space in the marina parking lot. A second parking pass can be purchased through Joe's Boats for $50 (and must be requested in advance) or through the BMC parking lot as you enter and leave.

Terms and Conditions

* 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. This includes those who spend the night and visit during the day.

* Quiet hours are 9:30pm – 7am. During these hours there is to be no loud music and no excessively loud talking on the top deck of the boats.

*Joe’s Boats is also a guest in the marina and we need to maintain our good standing in order to operate. This is a houseboat vacation rental meant for a relaxing weekend with friends and family – not a party boat.

* The houseboats are privately owned, and we ask that all of our guests treat the boats as though they were on their own property. We do take a security deposit in case of any intentional and unintentional damage or loss to the boat and its contents.

Relaxing. Imagine grilling on the top deck with the family, enjoying the views of passing boats, and being rocked to sleep at night. From sunrise with a cup of coffee to sunset with your favorite cocktail, we hope you'll find Joe's houseboats a relaxing oasis!

Why Joe chose Baltimore

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!

A Unique Fun Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a really super place to stay. The houseboat has everything you need for your visit (including TV and WiFi) and the top deck is an amazing place to enjoy the beautiful surrounding vista. The location is within walking distance to many restaurants and the grocery store plus there is an included parking spot if you do need to use the car. We thoroughly enjoyed the unique experience.

Great experience!!

  • 5 of 5

The houseboat was very clean, beds were super comfortable and the linens and towels were top of the line! It had everything we needed for a wonderful mini vacation. The water ferry was just a short walk away. My girls are ready to move onto a boat after this trip! The owners checked in to make sure everything was as expected and made themselves very available to us if we had any questions. Would definitely stay here again!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my wife and 11 month old daughter could not have enjoyed our time on the boat more. Ethel was very helpful and friendly getting us checked in. Joe & Chrissy answered any questions we had prior to the visit and were readily available should we need anything during our stay.

Very easy access to the restaurants, grocery/liquor store and 7-11 if you forgot any supplies or just want to buy them when you get in town. Comfortable & clean accommodations, great bathroom and A/C unit worked like a dream in the 85+ degree weather we had. We enjoyed the roof deck - being able to grill lunch/dinner, enjoy views of the marina and just relax outside was worth the trip. We are already looking for our next available weekend to book!

Owner's Response: John - glad that everything went smooth and relaxing, especially with the little one :) I hope she enjoyed the rocking boat and running around as much as you and your wife were able to enjoy relaxing on the top deck! ~ Joe & Chrissy

Great weekend spot near Fells Point!

  • 5 of 5

Grill and covered roof deck meant a great view while we cooked and ate. Well designed living area and stocked with what you need for a weekend away. Great staff, smooth check in and out.
