Overview

Photos and Description of this Canton holiday boat

2 bedroom houseboat with all of the ammenities

Pet Friendly, Super Convenient, Spacious Enough for the Whole Family

The Aries is a new 2 bedroom houseboat between the trendy Fells Point and Canton neighborhoods located at the Lighthouse Point Marina,. Beautiful views of Fells Point and Canton from the top deck. The boat is within walking distance to the grocery store, liquor store and many bars and restaurants. She has been specifically built for and designed with renters in mind! There are two private staterooms - the aft cabin has a queen size bed and the mid ship cabin has a full size bed, both with memory foam mattresses.

The living room boasts couch and two armchairs giving plenty of comfortable seating, and a 40' flat screen TV. The full kitchen includes a stove, microwave, and oven top, complete with cookware and serving-ware for entertaining. The custom handmade wood trim throughout the Aries gives you the overall comfort of a luxury home on the water.

The bathroom was designed to allow use of both the toilet area and shower independently of one another. There is a pocket door dividing the room to allow full access. A washer and dryer are provided in the master bedroom.

The master bedroom has a queen sized bed with a memory foam mattress while the guest room has a full sized bed and memory foam mattress. Additional guests can be accommodated on the queen sized air-bed that can be placed in the living room.

All bookings are provided one parking space

A second parking pass is $50 extra per stay and must be requested in advance of your stay

Terms and Conditions

Please note, the houseboat does not have engines and cannot be used to travel out into the Harbor.

The maximum number of guests on the boat is six. This includes those who spend the night and visit during the day

The houseboats are privately owned, and we ask that all of our guests treat the boats as though they were on their own property. I understand that I will be held financially responsible for any intentional and unintentional damage or loss to the boat and its contents.

Quiet hours are 9:30pm – 7am. During these hours there is to be no loud music and no excessively loud talking on the top deck of the boats. Joe’s Boats is also a guest in the marina and we need to maintain our good standing in order to operate. I understand that this is a houseboat vacation rental meant for a relaxing weekend with friends and family –not a party boat.

Luxurious and comfortable stay on the water!

  • 5 of 5

My 8 yo son, best friend and I stayed on the Aries for 2 nights. This was a new experience for us but we would do it again in a heart beat! Meeting Ethel for a transfer of keys was a cinch. I would recommend having a somewhat flexible schedule as the greeters take time out of the busy lives to meet you and show you around. This was not an issue for us as we were puttering around Inner Harbor all day. Ethel was really nice and showed us the ropes for the Aries. The marina is super nice and safe with private gated parking. Dining, shopping and water taxi are all within walking distance to the marina. The Aries Houseboat was really a luxury mini-condo on water. Nice modern furnishings, fully equipped kitchen with a huge refrigerator. Bathroom was very spacious for being on a boat, especially the shower! Both beds were extremely comfortable and we slept very soundly. The upper deck, while we didn't use very much due to weather, was very spacious, covered, and nicely furnished with chairs, table and grill. Must be awesome up there during warm months. We enjoyed hot tea and donuts one morning in the bright crisp sun. Also, this is the cleanest lodgings I have ever stayed in. We are Korean so we take our shoes off and our socks were never dirty, where as other places like hotels, our socks get filthy black. Things to note: there was a wind advisory during our stay and the boat did rock a little. The three of us were not bothered by this and I felt the rocking motion was soothing. But for some people, this may cause some dizziness and nausea. One guest that stopped by did start to experience some dizziness. So, if you're susceptible to motion sickness, this kind of stay may not be for you. In addition, the toilet is similar to what you would see on an RV. There is a lever that you push down on with your foot to whisk away the waste. You will also hear a pump in the back corner of the aft cabin, I think whenever the water is used. This did not bother us in any way but good to know about for sensitive sleepers. We will definitely book again for future trips to Baltimore. For us, there is no other fun and comfortable way to stay in Baltimore! Thanks Chrissy/JoesBoatsBaltimore for checking in on us and fabulous job on the boat!

Great stay, better if weather had cooperated

  • 4 of 5

This is a unique way to stay in Baltimore. House boat is fully equipped like a studio apartment. Has two bedrooms and plenty of room. This is our third stay on the Aries.

Perfect location for walking to bars and marina has a swim club. Go early for a chair. Thanks Joe and Chrissy.

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fantastic weekend on the Aries! Joe was amazing about answering all my questions before the weekend started, the payment process was totally easy, and the boat itself is amazing.

Charlene was also incredibly friendly and helpful throughout the whole weekend...I will definitely be recommending this to friends...and hopefully will be back again myself!

Thanks for a great experience!
