“A different experience”
Reviewed 4 June 2008

We were looking for an affordable place to stay in Boston for sightseeing. This fit the bill perfectly. It is less than a ten minute walk to the T station, which will take you all over the city. It is also one block from the USS Constitution, which means that you can catch any of the city trolley tours there.

The room we got (The Casita) was a small houseboat with a deck, not a sailboat. It is one room with a bed, small fridge, coffee maker (with supplies), closet, and cable TV. It has regular plumbing and a nice shower. (similar to a stateroom on a cruise). The deck has a table and chairs, and is a very pleasant place to have coffee or tea in the morning.

You will be rocked to sleep, and the only sounds will be the sounds of the boat moving. The marina is very quiet at night. (But a cannon, on the Constitution I think, goes off at 8 in the morning and about 8:15 at night)

You will not get daily maid service, but they do give you fresh towels and replace your soaps and shampoo.

Your breakfast is a voucher for a coffee and pastry shop next to the marina. The food is good, and there is a pretty good variety. There is no food at the marina, but there are restaurants within walking distance.

This was a nice place to stay, and a great price.

This was a fun, and inexpensive overnight stay. We had the smallest boat, but it had everything you need - a clean bedroom and bathroom, AC, color TV with cable, a deck to sit out on. All this, plus a beautiful view of Boston Harbor, and the Boston skyline made for a relaxing, romantic evening. It's all just a short walk from the North End.
