What a unique way to vacation! Stay on the water on board our cozy houseboat in Baltimore the Draco! This 36' Gibson houseboat is the perfect budget friendly, pet friendly vacation rental for anyone looking to stay on the water without the high cost of a waterfront hotel!
This vacation rental on the water has been renovated to accommodate up to 4-5 guests comfortably. The houseboat features a double bed, a twin bed and a futon in the main salon. The kitchen has all you need to prepare a home cooked meal with a residential sized refrigerator, cooktop burners, microwave and coffeemaker. If grilling is your thing then you'll love spending the day grilling on our outdoor deck as you take in the spectacular view and boats as they pass by.
