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 free tennis court, 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)

Looking for a different type of transportation? Book a tour of the Boston Harbor with our partners, Red Top Boats, for a water taxi service or boat charter.

The Experience:

Lewis Wharf is a private dock with close neighbors in an exclusive North End residential area. Only those with the key can pass through the gate providing a secure place to sleep! Quiet time is from 10 pm to 8 am. Please be respectful of our neighborhood.

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!

Although generally calm, 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.

 

Take advantage of this unique experience! Book with us today!

 

Please note:

Check in is at 3pm unless pre-approved. Check out is at 11am, no exceptions.

The extra person fee applies for every guest after two guests.

We loved the location, but decided we are just not boat people. It should probably be listed for just 2 people as it was really cramped quarters and the pull out couch is mostly unbearable to sleep in. We think the boat needed to be pulled tighter

Fix broken chairs and light switches. Husband almost fell when arm collapsed on wooden deck chair. Bed in bedroom is not meant for anyone over 5' tall. Feet hang over the end which makes sleep impossible.

Was a very unique and memorable stay for a long weekend. It’s small living quarters so be prepared for that. The boat is a little older but in good shape. Only issues we had were getting the lights to work, they had small push lights around but

Cabin needs repairs to curtains, floors and woodwork. Not as up to date and clean looking as it could be. Location was great. Chairs on deck are not safe to sit in.

The good? Great location and concept. The bad? This boat (poor girl) is old, tired and needs quite a bit of TLC. The ugly? No one has truly cleaned her in a long time. We arrived a early around 1 pm and called to see if by chance it was ready. Guy

Great Stay. Boat is the way to go. Beds were comfortable. The location is close to so many great parts of Boston. Loved ending the days enjoying a meal or snack sitting on the deck enjoying the Boston city happening along the shore.

Amazing stay! High quality! I loved the stay and the easy come and go access and the privacy. I felt very safe with the gated area, but a warning that the gate was very heavy would’ve been nice! I struggled with it for a little before figuring it

Lovely, convenient location. We appreciated someone being available to help us get in at 1 am. The boat smelled like sewage so we left the door open at night. The bathroom door was hard to open and close. The beds were comfortable.

Excellent location and overall a great experience and we would / prob will stay again. The only reason for four stars instead of five is that there was a bit of an odor that may have come from the bathroom that we could smell while in bed. We had

Ever wanted to sip a drink over the harbor in your very own boat while docked in the one and only North End?! Well, here it is! Walk to all that is Boston, drift to sleep to the lull of the calm water & quietly watch the sunrise over the

We hit a little bump in the road with our stay but Management quickly jumped in and fixed it. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The boat was very comfortable with great views of Boston Harbor!
