Location, location, location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fun week staying at the Miss Leah. The location was perfect for us. There was five of us, one teenager, two parents & two grandparents. Getting on & off & around on the Miss Leah was not a problem for any of us. The waterfront was fun to walk around & we enjoyed the restaurants within walking distance (especially the ice cream shop!). We were there during a hot spell & had trouble keeping the place cool, but there were plenty of fans, so that was just an unfortunate time of year & it was hot for everyone! With the "notes" beforehand we brought plenty of paper towels, coffee filters & cleansers, but looked like so did everyone else, so if you stay you may want to see what is there prior to purchasing more. The water from the faucet is drinkable...being from Arizona where it is NOT, this was great & we refilled bottles quite often. The manager responded quickly to any question which was greatly appreciated. There is some construction close by, but other than that it was a very peaceful location & we did enjoy our own happy hour on the upstairs deck at sunset!!

Better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, three older kids and I spent 4 nights on the Miss Leah over July 4th. It was awesome! Everything exceeded our expectations. It was clean and very comfortable. The location and views are second to none. Marina Bay is a great location with great restaurants and night life. There is a coffee shop less than 100 yards from Miss Leah that opens up at 7am. We would go there for breakfast and coffee each day and sit outside by the water enjoying the views. We would uber into the city each day to shop, sightsee and watch the Sox! We've never had a more enjoyable vacation! We are already discussing our return trip.

Nice but not exceptional...

  • 4 of 5

The house boat was clean and well maintained. The upstairs bed was small for a queen and not very comfortable. The downstairs bed for 2 people is way too small....Occasionally there was some rocking from the waves which was a bit annoying but to be expected on a house boat....The stairway going to the upper level is difficult when bringing luggage up and down. Overall was a good experience...

A Great Experience !!

  • 5 of 5

Found it easily with navigation in my I phone. This is a great location and a unique experience. Carts available to put your bags in so easy to get them to the Miss Leah. Its is very spacious and plenty of natural light. The upper dock area has plenty of restaurants, from fancy to take out. Busy area and plenty of choices. It is a boat, but you really feel like your in a home. Two bedrooms and plenty of space. Everything is modern and clean. Plenty of towels etc and 2 full bathrooms. This is an experience you will enjoy.

Unique, Clean, & Fun!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the floating boat house was such a fun experience for me, my husband, and our 2 friends! I loved how clean it was and the views were fantastic. Plus the boat was very still, you would never know you were on a boat. I definitely recommend it to couples or a friends retreat! An added bonus is all the restaurants nearby that are walking distance, including some fun bars. The only heads up I can give is the small gap in between the dock and the front door, the slim stairway that may be tight for your luggage (mine was small for me so it wasn't a problem) and the parking (you may not get a good parking spot depending on how crowded it was at the restaurants). Again, this wasn't a deal breaker especially since my husband dropped us girls off first with the luggage and then parked but this only happened 1 x out of the 3 days. Overall, I loved it because it wasn't your usual hotel in the city. I felt I had the best of both worlds staying at the marina in a cool boathouse and driving to the city (short drive). I definitely would stay here again!

Miss Leah is beautiful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and would recommend Miss Leah if you are planning a trip to Boston. The house boat is spacious,clean and well equipped with anything you could need. The T subway is close and it gets you into the heart of Boston in about 15 minutes. Within walking distance from the house are several nice restaurants. We loved it and would highly recommend it.
