The Experience:The boat is docked in a secure marina locked by a gate. Only those with the key can pass through the gate.The waters are generally calm in this area 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 deck with a cold drink in hand, listening to the soothing sounds of the ocean as you enjoy the fantastic waterfront atmosphere! Take advantage of the opportunity and reserve this boat with SleepAfloat!

A great way to break the hotel monotony

  • 4 of 5

This is a very cool way to get out of the hotel room rut. Great location (a 5 minute walk from the North End and Paul Revere's house) that is quiet and unique. It is a boat, so accommodations have to be made. The quarters are tight and the toilets would be small for a child. Be prepared to get used to the "uniqueness". However, it is well worth the extra effort to not be stuck in a generic hotel room. Once you've gotten it figured out, it is cozy and fun. A great way to make a unique experience in Boston. The management is responsive and accommodating. All in all, a great experience!

Rocked our World!

  • 5 of 5

Whenever we plan a getaway we always look to see if SleepAfloat has a rental in the area. We've stayed with them several times and they never disappoint.

For our weekend away in Boston we opted for Lola. It was the perfect option for me, my husband and son. As expected, the accommodations were very clean and comfortable. Best night's sleep I've ever had on vacation!

The location is fantastic too. The boat is docked right in downtown so there is no need to rent a car. We mostly walked to everything and only took the subway (just a few minutes walk from the marina) when we wanted to visit Fenway Park.

The only suggestion I'd give to the owners is to leave some sort of games on the boat for entertainment during raining days/nights. There is TV and internet on the boat but we had a night in and thought it'd be fun to play some board games or even just cards.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback Holly and I'm glad to hear you had a great time! I think some types of games would be a great idea to have on the boats for downtime. We look forward to seeing you again in the future – thanks so much for staying with us!!

Awesome weekend on an awesome boat

  • 5 of 5

My brothers and I were in Boston for a weekend and stayed on Lola. It was definitely a new and enjoyable experience. The boat is walking distance to just about everything, and there are some great restaurants and places to see nearby. JJ was awesome to deal with, providing recommendations and ensuring that we had everything that we needed. We would definitely recommend this rental to anyone travelling to Boston.
