Guestbook comments from the manager

This boat was once docked in Providence but has since moved to Cape Cod. This is a review of the boat prior to the move:

I was surprised how large the boats were inside as they can comfortably sleep six people. They also have all the amenities you would get in a hotel and nice kitchen space for you to use. If you are looking for a little different experience I would highly recommend trying this out.

Great Rental!

A totally fun floating home-away-from-home! Marina is good location with great restaurant on site. This was a nice, unconventional base for our Cap Cod vacation.

Best Week Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

I decided to try renting a boat instead of a hotel room for a change of pace. That was absolutely the best decision I could have made :)  The boat was fantastic!! So comfortable and clean. It has everything you need for a week away.  I am not sure what I expected, but it certainly surpassed anything I could have imagined.  Comfy bed and sofa, full kitchen complete with dishes and silverware, plent of space.  The location was easy to get to.  The other people in the marina were friendly.  The marina itself was so peaceful and calm. Perfect for a little rest and relaxation, yet still close enough to beaches and other things to do. I plan on making this an annual trip!!

A pleasant place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed staying in the houseboat. Sometimes I was alone and sometimes I was with my husband. It is perfect for two people, plus perhaps some little kids, but probably a little crowded for more than 2 adults. The bed was very comfortable, it was quiet, the little living room/kitchen area was just right. Eileen, my contact person, was very nice, very helpful. The boat was moored at the kinsman marina in a little separate alcove of water, apart from the majority of the boats moored on the bay. This meant that I did not have any problem with excessive rocking even though it was very windy. My view was of other boats nearby, but not of the bay. Still nice. The rest of my family was nearby so I had access to their beach, etc. If you stay here,it is important to have some beaches in mind. The Lobster Trap is really good now- improved over past years.
