    Additional Location Information
    Located in the hip and unique Boston neighborhood of East Boston, our location gives our travelers a calming respite from the frenetic pace of Boston. The marina is located in a secluded cove that is used by boaters in the harbor as a shelter from any passing storms due to its geography allowing for very calm water. If you have a fear of becoming seasick while on board, you can be assured there is no calmer water in Boston. The boats may gently rock from passing boats, but we are completely protected from any incoming swells that buffet all of the other Boston Marinas.

    Begin your adventure here on our boats, and continue it in Boston easily with multiple transportation options. We have parking included for one car with every rental, this spot is super close to the boat in the intimate marina. No worrying about hauling your luggage blocks to your boat on check in like other rentals in Boston. Additionally we have partnered with Rowes Wharf Water Transport, Bostons premier. water taxi...

I flew into Boston to present at an economics conference and discovered, upon my arrival, that there had been a problem with my hotel - the reservation had accidentally been made for a town 26 miles from Boston. AND it was MIT graduation and two conventions in town - so there were no hotels under $700/night available in town. Stuck... more

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Sometimes a little variety goes a long way in life. And this time, I surprised my family with a houseboat instead of another plastic corporate hotel. It was wonderful. Of course you need to manage everybody's expectations. Not fancy. But definitely unique. We slept well and cooked a nice dinner and breakfast in the simple kitchen. Showers were ok. The... more

Just a quick follow up about the water taxi service for any folks looking to book in the future. We definitely have had some growing pains instituting this service for... more
