Location:

Conveniently located in the heart of downtown Boston at Lewis Wharf, this boat is just steps away from the New England Aquarium, Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall, the North End, Boston Garden, a public ice skating rink, and countless other things to see and do.

Transportation:

Short walk (less than 10 mins) to Aquarium, North Station and Government Center subway stations

The adjacent parking lot charges $30-35 for 24 hours (this does not include in-and-out privileges)

 

The Experience:

The boat is docked in a secure marina locked by a gate. Only those with the key can pass through the gate.

 

The waters are generally calm in this area but there can be some occasional movement during the day when boats pass by. At night the waters are very calm and some guests even find that a bit of gentle swaying relaxes them and makes for a very restful sleep.

 

After a long day of touring the city there is nothing better than relaxing on your own private deck with a cold drink in hand, listening to the soothing sounds of the ocean as you enjoy the fantastic waterfront atmosphere! Take advantage of the opportunity and reserve this boat with SleepAfloat!

Lewis Wharf is a private dock with close neighbors in an exclusive North End residential area. Quiet time is from 10 pm to 8 am. Please be respectful of our neighborhood.

This is the way to visit Boston!
Posted on: 5/28/2014

 Excellent - we're already looking at SleepAfloat in other cities, and would definitely be back on White Elephant when we're back in Boston. So much more character and atmosphere than a bland hotel room. The SleepAfloat staff helped us every step of our stay - from Marcia with planning and reservations, JJ helping us set up a venue for a wedding get-together, and John helping us and checking on us during our stay. This is the best kept secret in Boston...

Fun, unique accomodation!
Posted on: 4/4/2013
Three teens and three adults stayed comfortably on The White Elephant and were extremely comfortable. The boat is situated conveniently for any able bodied person, and is within walking distance to both trolley and water taxi stops. The only thing that wasn't completely satisfactory was the wifi service. It was spotty and disappointing since it was listed in the amenities, but overall we had a great stay. Oh, and the guy in the neighboring boat was cranky and unfriendly, but that's not Sahr's fault. The teenagers continue to describe our stay as "brilliant!"

New Year's Eve on the water
Posted on: 3/30/2013
We are 3 couples who celebrate New Year's Eve together! This year we chose the White Elephant. The high point was watching the fireworks over the bay from our windows. Minor issues with the boat were resolved by the caretaker and owner. We ate breakfast and lunch on the water. We walked to local First Night activities during the day and evening. It's a great location. We'd love to stay here in during the summer or fall. If you don't require the amenities of a hotel and are able to "walk the plank" this is the place for your next stay in Boston.
Response
So glad to hear you enjoyed your New Years Eve with us! Please come back again soon!

Cheers,
SleepAfloat

New and exciting way to see Boston!
Posted on: 1/29/2013

We stayed on the White Elephant and it was an adventure. Ryan helped us get our things on board and settled. It was fun to be able to cook and live on the water. The Marina was interesting and the planes flying in lovely. My grandchildren and family came for dinner one night and they loved steering the boat and going on the deck. My girlfriend joined the fun another night. Recommend it for a new an exciting way to see Boston. Two yachts were there and that was fun to watch. Just walking up and down the marina and seeing the unique ways people live, vacation, and travel gave food for thought.

It was a blast!
Posted on: 1/29/2013

This place was a blast. I give it a 9 out of 10. I'll never stay in a hotel in the Boston area again. Why cramp yourself into a tiny hotel room, when you could be floating in style on The White Elephant. Wood floors throughout, a king bed in the master suite, 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen/living room/dining room, and a deck with a grill. Seriously!!

Would Definitely Do It Again
Posted on: 1/29/2013

We had a great time staying on the boat and at the marina, especially the kids. It was much more space than we would have gotten in a hotel, was in a quiet, safe location and was a unique place to live in for a few days. Is it perfect? No. Would we rent the place again? Definitely.

Great Holiday Visit!
Posted on: 1/29/2013

Our family of five had a GREAT post-Christmas visit to Boston and stayed at The White Elephant Floating Inn. We had plenty of room to spread out and a wonderful, cozy living area in which to gather after a big day of sightseeing! Much more fun than a bunch of hotel rooms! The water taxi and Old Town Trolley made it very easy to get around. There's a nice neighborhood market just a couple of blocks away. Great, interesting, safe location! Thanks Andy, Peggy & Ryan!


Nina G.
Hope to be back soon!
Posted on: 1/29/2013

Nine of us piled onto the White Elephant to spend a weekend in Boston for a friends wedding. We had so much fun! It was wonderful to wake up on the water and SO much more fun than a hotel. The boat accommodated 9 comfortably (we are an intimate crew of old friends). We had a great time cooking together and BBQing on the roof deck, walking around Charlestown, and spending time on the boat. All the neighbors in the harbor were super friendly. We definitely recommend a visit, and hope to be back!


Cynthia
Great Fun!
Posted on: 1/29/2013

The houseboat was great fun. Ryan was amazing. Any time there was any little thing, he was there in a flash, called back immediately even late at night. We enjoyed ourselves and would do it again! My actors and I were all there for the Boston International Film Festival. We got dressed there comfortably and made it to the theater to see our film on the big screen. Thanks again for EVERYTHING!!!


What an experience!
Posted on: 1/29/2013

This review was made prior to the boat being moved to a downtown Boston location:

What a contrast to a hotel in a big city, and a relaxing getaway offering easy access to the sights of Boston! The boat is clean, quaint and cozy, and was recently moved to a dock providing less motion and better views. It's equipped with all the comforts of home--dishes, utensils, linens, etc.-- including a much appreciated coffee maker, filters and coffee in the freezer! We stayed mid-May and would have loved kinder weather as it was rainy and windy at times-- but it will be fabulous for guests this summer and fall. Do not worry about motion; it is gentle and peaceful, and as other guests have commented, the soft rocking lulls one easily to sleep. Hop a water taxi for $1.75 to the Aquarium, Legal Seafood restaurant, Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market and other sights along Freedom Trail. Be sure to check out the State House and take the free tour. Walk to the REAL Cheers bar. Also spend time on Old Ironsides, its museum and the 2nd WW battleship nearby, all free and in easy walking distance. For dinner head to the north end, laden with Italian fare--our favorite was "Cibo" soon to be renamed "Ponza"--everything made fresh and to order, and reasonable. There's lots more to do but we just had a few days this time and those were the highlights. Andy was a thoughtful and caring host (with a great sense of humor!), always available when we had any questions. The crescendo was his connection with a water taxi service that picked us up at our dock ($30/couple plus tip) and whisked us to a hotel where we picked up a free 5-min. bus to the airport. All in all, very enjoyable and highly recommended!
