Baltimore House Rental Photos and Description

Bedrooms 2, Bathrooms 1, Sleeps 6

Come stay aboard our FABULOUS houseboat, berthed in one of the most convenient marinas for exploring all that Baltimore has to offer!

Custom designed inside and out, this floating home features handcrafted wood trim and cabinetry, an open style main salon and dining area, a fully appointed galley kitchen with household size refrigerator, microwave, sink and cook-top stove, and a private full bathroom with shower stall. Fully furnished, the master bedroom has a Queen bed and memory foam topper and the second stateroom boosts a full sized bed and same topper.

The living room includes a sleeper sofa, 40" flat screen TV and 2 club chairs. There is plenty of space for eating with a dining table and 4 chairs plus a kitchen island that doubles as a breakfast bar with 2 stools! On warm days you can enjoy a meal outside on our HUGE roof deck!

Scorpius was built with the comfort of the renter in mind. We specifically designed our bathroom to allow for both the use of the toilet area and shower independently of one another. There is a pocket door dividing the room in two, allowing access to each area independently.

We've thought of everything so you don't have to! The kitchen is full of brand new appliances, cooking utensils and silverware to make meal preparation a snap. The boat comes with linens and towels, condiments, paper supplies and even a Kuerig coffeemaker with pods for easy one step coffee anytime!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The only thing better than being in Baltimore for the Sailabration Blue Angels Show and massive fireworks display was being on the Scorpius for the wonderful weekend!

We had never considered a house boat before, but hotel prices were higher than normal because of so many visitors to the City. It was great. The boat was immaculate, the beds were firm and comfortable and the tv was perfect for watching the Orioles beat the Yankees!

No one had a better view of the Blue Angels and the fireworks than we did from the top deck, well equipped with comfortable chairs.

The location was perfect, lots of restaurants, etc nearby.

We hope to board the Scorpius for a future adventure.

Thanks! Janet

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time aboard the Scorpius. It is located in a great area that has lots of options for food and nightlife. The boat is open and clean. The interior is and furnishing are very nice and it has a cozy feel to it. The marina where it is docked is quiet and well maintained. Sleep afloat was very easy to book with, extended our stay with no problem twice, and very responsive. We had a very positive experience, and I will happily recommend everyone I know to stay with sleep afloat!

Wonderful Experience!!

This was exactly what we needed! Marina was quiet and close to anything you needed. Houseboat was just as advertised, very clean and comfortable. Staff was extremely easy to deal with and quick with communication. We wouldn't hesitate to rent another SleepAfloat property. Thanks!!

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, loaction! You can't live any nicer than this and so close to all the nice viewings in D.C. The boat was very clean and the service from the maintenance guy extraordinary. We stayed on the boat for three months and has absolutely nothing to complain on. We are really gonna miss the boat!
