We stayed on the Kindred Spirit at the Dockside Boat & Bed for an Anniversary Weekend. It was so amazing. Could not have asked for a more beautiful and romantic getaway. Kent and Molly were great. Continental breakfast left in front of our door. We walked everywhere and the only time we got in our car again was to come... More

We were a senior couple celebrating our 49th and stayed aboard the 'Sea Peepers' for two nights. What a blast!! There is a certain reckless romance about being on the sea and it comes thru five-fold aboard these beautiful and comfortable yachts. Compared to any nice, special occasion hotel, this was a flat our bargain. As all the reviews say,... More

We stayed for a night on the Pasta Too in late December, as I booked it as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend. We enjoyed some wine on the top deck and really enjoyed the view of the ocean and lighthouse. The boat was fully equipped with 2 flat-screen TVs, a full kitchen with plates/cup/utensils, DVD player, movies, and heater.... More

Stayed onboard the Pasta Too and had an excellent time. Cabin well appointed, bed very comfortable. Flying bridge gave us great views of the fireworks show put on by Gladstone's restaurant as well as the midnight show put on by the city. Great placement within Shoreline Village and easy access to the downtown as well.

We stayed aboard The Indecent Proposal and loved it! Kent helped us get settled in before a few friends arrived. We enjoyed apps & drinks on a lovely Saturday afternoon. It was a little cool but sunny & calm. I had made arrangements with Ingrid/Gladstone's to have our dinner delivered. Ingrid & Katie were awesome, just like our dinner! We... More

We stayed on the Pasta Too. It has two bedrooms, a spacious bathroom, living room area and an upper deck. It was quiet on the dock, since it was mostly couples. Jazz music can be heard from the sidewalk area that plays all day and into the early evening. The satellite tv did cut out alot, but the Yardhouse and... More

Just left the Sea Peepers this morning and already missing it. Great location and super friendly check in hosts. More space than you think. Shortish walk to Queen Mary was worth it.
