The White Elephant Floating Inn is a one-of-a-kind houseboat that sleeps up to 10 guests! Perfect for a family or large group getaway, this handcrafted vessel features beautifully finished wood paneled walls, exposed wood beams and inlaid hardwood floors. You won’t find another rental like this in Boston!
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.
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 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.
