Newport house boat description

The Lilypad is a great, escape. Upon arrival you will have a spacious, spotless 40ft houseboat for you and your guests.

Bright and spacious with incredible views from any one of the three decks or from inside you will see classic sailboats, motor yachts, fishing vessels and the most unforgettable sunrises and sunsets. You will wake up to the gentle rocking of the ocean while being comfortable in a tranquil enviornment. At the begining of the day enjoy hot coffee on the front deck, take a swim off of the houseboat, get some sun and at the end of the day relax on the upperdeck with a cocktail under the stars. See what it's like to 'live on the water' and what being in Newport is really about. The Lilypad.

During the summer the Lilypad is moored in Newport Harbor. You will have 360 degree water views, see manions on rolling greens and boats going by. The summer months are loaded with great events, music festivals, the tennis hall of fame and world class regatta's. September and October are some of the best months. The ocean is warm, the town slows down and the surroundings are vibrant. We offer full time water taxi service to get you back and forth into downtown Newport and back to the Lilypad. The water taxi takes you through Newport Harbor which is great because it's like having a personal tour which you would not see if you where staying in town. Once you arrive you don't have to drive again until you leave.

Feel free to bring your own provisions and cook on board. If you prefer not to cook we can provide catering/provisioning for small intimate dinners, birthday and cocktail parties!

The Lilypad will be available year round. We bring the Lilypad to a marina in downtown Newport October15-May15 where she will be dockside. There is a charming boating community within the marina. Filled with classic sailboats and powerboats of all sizes. While staying onboard during this time period you will have access to a indoor, heated pool and sauna. You will also be in walking distance to great restaurants, stylish boutiques and historical landmarks. Enjoy the views from Lilypads upper deck of Newport Harbor and the colorful sunsets of the cooler season. There are a lot of festivals and events to enjoy during the fall and winter months and the city by the sea is beautifully decorated for the holiday season. The rates are $125-$200p/n tax included.
