About the property

2 bedroom houseboat with all of the amenities

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

The Aries is a 2 bedroom houseboat between the downtown Baltimore neighborhoods of Fells Point and Canton, docked at the Lighthouse Point Marina. Beautiful views of Baltimore's Harbor from the top deck! The boat is within walking distance to the grocery store, liquor store, water taxi, and many restaurants. She has been specifically built for and designed with renters in mind!

Built in 2011, the interior is spacious and efficiently laid out with relaxing dining and living space, plus a large top deck for grilling and great views. There are two private bedrooms - the master with a queen size bed (and a full glass window for water views while laying in bed!) and the second with a full size bed.

The living room includes a full-size pull out couch, comfortable seating, and a 40" flat screen TV with DVD player. The full kitchen includes a stove, microwave, and oven top, complete with cookware and serving-ware for entertaining. Enjoy your meals at the counter bar, kitchen table, or seated on the top deck!

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.

All bookings are provided one complimentary parking space in the marina parking lot. Additional parking can be paid for as you enter and leave the same lot.

Additional Notes:

* 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 (6). This includes those who spend the night and visit during the day.

* Dogs are welcome, but may require an additional fee, depending on the number and breed. We love our dog on vacation with us, and this is a very pet-friendly marina, just keep in mind that you will be staying on a boat which is located a short walk away from an area where the dog can relieve itself, and they will most likely need to be carried on and off the boat.

* We, Joe's Boats, are a paying customer of the marina where the Aries houseboat is docked. In order to be able to operate our rentals, we must maintain a good standing with the marina. This is a vacation rental meant for a relaxing weekend with friends and family – this is not a party boat.

* The refundable security deposit is based on adherence to the terms and conditions in our Rental Agreement.

Amazing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Four generations stayed on Aires for Mother's Day weekend. It was a thoroughly enjoyable weekend. Joe and Chrissy are great hosts and made sure we had a great experience. I would highly recommend a stay on this boat and am thinking I will certainly try it again. Thank you Joe and Chrissy!

Awesome getaway

  • 5 of 5

We recently were guest on The Aries (Joe's Boats). It was such an awesome experience staying on this well-equipped houseboat. Joe and Krissy go to great lengths to accommodate their guests and make you feel at home. The greeter was very welcoming and escorted us to the boat to show us around. Krissy checked in to make sure everything was ok and that we didn't need anything. The water taxi service was convenient to get us to the Inner Harbor, Fells Points, and several other areas of interest. (Just make sure you check the taxi schedule to avoid waiting.) Overall a very enjoyable weekend getaway and will definitely return in the future!

Comfortable and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

We stayed on the Aires for a few nights in April. Ethel was very helpful in orienting us to the amenities and geographic area. The boat was clean and quiet. We absolutely loved the view of the Inner Harbor from the upper deck and the beds were very comfortable. Getting to and from the boat was easy and there are some great restaurants within walking distance.

We really enjoyed staying on the boat. For us, at 74 years old, the distance from the parking lot to the boat was pretty far. The beds were very comfortable. We were disappointed with the Comcast reception and the fact that the bedroom tv didn't work. Overall, it's a great place to stay.
