This was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We live just 20 minutes away, but this was a true getaway. It is the best view of Portsmouth in town. We stayed on a night when our favorite band was playing at Prescott Park, so we were able to avoid parking downtown and walk right over the bridge to the concert. The location of the boat cannot be beat. The boat is like a mini apartment, with just the right touches of home. Views from the bow, stern, and a 360 view of Portsmouth and Kittery from the upper deck. George makes you feel like family, and the owners of the boat were so hospitable. It was a heat wave when we were there, but the air conditioning kept us cool. When the heat finally broke, we were able to open the windows and enjoy the estuary breeze. We did take out at Warrens and brought it back to eat on the marina deck picnic tables. It was like our own little restaurant. If we had more time, we would have eaten at Morrisons down the street, a favorite of ours. I wish I could live on this boat all summer!

Exceptional.unique escape vacation

  • 5 of 5

My two friends and I enjoyed a two night stay on the Vagabond. We had a fabulous time even though the weather was mostly rainy. The boat has everything you need including a Keurig and coffee pods. The only thing I would recommend bringing is some plastic wrap if you plan to use some of your own food. It was plenty of space for the three of us. George, the dock master, was so friendly and helpful. One night we walked to nearby Warren's which has an amazing salad bar and excellent food. Don't

miss When Pigs Fly if you want to sample or buy some delicious breads. I would recommend the Vagabond to anyone who wants to relax with water ambiance. I would love to come back again.

A Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

At the end of our two weeks of travel we ended up on the Vagabound. It was something fun and different and gave us a different look at things than if we had been in a hotel. We had 4 adults in our party and the space and privacy were perfect. We sat on the top deck and watched the boat traffic. We saw a different side of the city watching the bridge raise for large boats, freighters go through, all the other boat dwellers were very friendly and helpful. The owner was extremely helpful and great to work with. I would stay here again and would highly recommend it to others. A fun few days!

Something Different

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed it very much. Our first time renting a houseboat. It was a fun adventure. The boat is docked in a lovely marina on Badger's Island, just across the water from Portsmouth, N.H. We were able to walk into Portsmouth, via the Portsmouth Memorial Bridge bridge just up the street. A couple of miles away were the Kittery Shopping Outlets. We had originally asked another couple to join us, but they couldn't. It's a good thing, 'cause even though it has two bedrooms with queen size beds and 1 1/2 baths, I feel privacy would have been an issue. I think it's perfect for a couple, a girls getaway and a family with teenagers. I say teenagers, 'cause I would have been very nervous if our young grandchildren had been with us. The weather was spectacular and George the Dock Master, along with his wife Dawn, were extremely helpful and friendly.

Will be back :-)

  • 4 of 5

We stayed on The Vagabond with my parents. Loved the location and it was a fun experience to "live on a houseboat". Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We arrived after dark, and it was very nice that they left a small light and some music on for us. Jessica made the entire booking procedure nice and easy and George was the perfect dock master. We'll definitely be back.

Enjoy the unique experience of living on a boat and take advantage of all that the Seacoast has to offer.

There are plenty of attractions just across the newly remodeled Memorial Bridge in Portsmouth, NH., including restaurants and village shops.

Prescott Park is just a 10 minute walk away and offers outdoor plays, bands and festivals as well as beautiful flower gardens.

Take a 5 minute drive on Route 1 North and you will be at the famous Kittery Outlet Malls where you can spend some time shopping or eat at Bob's Clam Hut which was featured on Food Networks Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

Interested in doing a daytrip? Boston is an hour south, or the beautiful White Mountains of NH are an hour and a half to the north.

A nice drive up the coast of Maine would take you to the quaint coastal villages of York Beach, Ogunquit, Wells and Kennebunkport, which boast gorgeous beaches, shopping and delicious world class cuisine.
