“Somewhere fun and different to stay in Seattle”

Enjoyed our stay! Price was the same as if my family of 4 (two teenagers) would have stayed in one double room at the downtown Sheraton. The boat gave us a kitchen and dining space as well as a very nice living space to lounge and relax and separate sleeping areas. The master bed was very comfortable and the kids said they slept amazingly well and loved the large bunks at the other end of the boat. Nearby shops - cool kayak shop, deli and coffee, yacht sales and the waterfront area around the harbor are all cute with lots of walkers and runners along the waterfront path. We walked about 300 feet to the deli and coffee place and got reasonably priced, good coffee and great breakfast sandwiches and expensive wine and beer. You need to be comfortable with what comes with a boat and harbor though - a little oily smell is very typical on a boat and I smelled that a bit in the master bedroom area but with a little airflow it never bothered me and I have a really good, sensitive nose. And yes there was some noise on Saturday night from the banquet room above the Chinese food restaurant but we just turned on some white noise on our phones and had zero problem sleeping. Sunday night was really quiet. Super friendly people living in the harbor on the floating homes there. Loved getting up and being able to watch the crew teams glide across the water. Saw a few float planes take off too which was fun to watch. The view of the city with the space needle was nice also. My husband is a good sized guy at 6’1’’ / 185 so the shower and sink area in the master was small for him but for a couple of nights didn’t bother him and having all the other space and a separate room for the kids was well worth the space constraints in other areas to us. The furniture and decor is eclectic, chic and tasteful and we are pretty picky travelers who usually stay in 4 star places. There is always something to be redone or spruced up on the external wood of a boat and this one is no different but all the wood and finishes inside the boat were well cared for and the outside is in fairly typical shape for a boat in a rainy area. If you are looking for a fun, different type of stay in Seattle with some extra space to lounge a bit, this is a good option.

The host was great. It was restful to live on the water. The smell of diesel was very overwhelming and the furnishing were shabby. There was also a Chinese restaurant with some wedding bands on the weekend. So if you stay up top on deck and enjoy Union Lake you will be good.

Too many downsides for us to repeat.

I am sorry for your experience on the boat. The engine is gas so if there was a smell, it would be gas, but no one else has mentioned the smell.
Would you mind telling us which furnishings were "shabby", The couch is only a couple years old and chairs are brand new. Please let us now what you were dissatisfied with.

Thanks, Bill

“360 degree water views, spacious, homey, quiet, perfect location. Loved every moment on this boat.”
Reviewed May 20, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Plenty of room for our party of three adults for a week.
We spent a great deal of time in the lounge area as it was so attractive and peaceful. If we had been trapped in a hotel with limited views, we would have felt it necessary to be out and about constantly. Living on this boat was ideal. Lots to look at from the comfort of the sitting area with windows on all sides complete with a real-flame electric fireplace (it was May and chilly). Convenient to Trader Joe's and restaurants in Queen Anne as well as to the ferries and sights downtown. The galley was plenty large enough for preparing meals; the refrigerator was unexpectedly commodious. The barbecue grill on the deck was a bonus. All and all it was a successful and handsome arrangement.
The owner couldn't have been more accommodating. The best of hosts.
Will recommend and return!
P.S. Two of us are in our "golden years" and had no problem at all with the short ladder to board the boat.
