Parking is also available for $27/day cash at the marina.

The Experience

The boat is in a protected part of the marina, 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 sun deck with a cold drink in hand, listening to the soothing sounds of the ocean as you enjoy the fantastic view of Boston's city skyline! So come join us and float all your cares away on SleepAfloat managed houseboat the Lilypad!

Holiday rates are higher. Call for rates.

*Please note this boat was built in the mid-80's and is not as modern and spacious as other vessels in our fleet, however its central waterfront location is ideal for the more adventurous, budget minded traveler. This is a tight living space with limited storage.
