Overview

Photos and Description of this Baltimore holiday boat

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

Multiple outdoor decks and an indoor raised living room provide plenty of space for entertaining. The brand-new kitchen features a full-sized fridge, stove, and all the amenities needed for a great cookout. There is one bedroom with queen sized bed and plenty of storage, and the living room hides a sofabed to sleep two more. The best feature of the Margaret Claire? The amazing 360* views outside of the large wrap around windows!

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 four. 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.

Great alternative to hotels in an idela location

  • 5 of 5

The marina was quiet and calm, the boat was clean and comfortable and check-in was very helpful given my late flight arrival.

There's great restaurants and cool bars very nearby, as well as a 7/11 open 24-hours and laundrette. I recommend all of them, and the Sushi restaurant is good for takeaway.

Also recommend using the water-taxi nearby, such a great way to get to the other local areas for food and entertainment.

Thank you so much for your hospitality and hopefully I can stay again next year.

Cozy Cottage in the Harbor

  • 5 of 5

This was a peaceful, quiet, and scenic spot. That said, it was wonderful having Bo Brooks bar/restaurant activities and The BoatHouse so close. We could listen to the evening activities of people having a good time! The Canton Waterfront Park was very close where we enjoyed watching people and their dogs. Lots of joggers on the waterfront promenade made me want to start up again! The house boat was spotless and the layout fantastic. It was almost "open concept" with the kitchen and living room layout. My daughter and I enjoyed making pancakes. I say this because I don't like cooking in my own kitchen! But, as she said, she liked it because we could all be close together while dad set at the bar/table. The kitchen was beautiful. The bedroom is in the back of the boat. It is very cozy. The deck was lovely as well. It was VERY hot so we stayed under the canopy for the shade when we were on the upper deck. The bathroom was a nice size. Donovan came, very quickly, to assist us with a toilet issue. This was not the fault of the boat; just that we were not experienced in using a RV/camping type toilet. Ethel contacted him for us and he was there in no time! Also, there are carts to use so that you can load up all your luggage, some groceries, to make one easy trip to the Margaret Claire. Joe and Chrissy were more than nice. Whenever we communicated by email, it was like talking to your close friends. Ethel was sweet! She had a Ben and Jerry's Banana Split Ice Cream for us in the freezer! The water taxi took us where ever we wanted to explore, be it Fort McHenry, Fells Point or the Inner Harbor. My daughter liked this trip better than our trips to Bethany Beach, DE! I agree! The one regret would be that we didn't plan to stay longer! Thank you Joe, Chrissy, Ethel and Donovan, and the very nice lady working the counter at the pool!

comfortable, well stocked and perfectly located

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the Margaret Claire. It had everything we needed and was located close to the water taxi so we could leave our car in the lot and tool around Baltimore's inner harbor all day for one low price.

Only downsides, there was a bit of a odor on the boat which required some Lysol and a scented candle to get rid of and the water in the marina was full of trash (not the owners problem, probably a trashcan that blew into the water). Otherwise we loved it.

A nice change of pace

  • 5 of 5

Charlene met us at the gated parking area with a utility cart to help carry our weekend gear and told us about the amenities. We had 2 lovely 55° days onboard . The boat was as was pictured and was a great alternative to a hotel. We live in the suburbs of Baltimore but chose this as a birthday get away,tourists in our own city. You are situated right in the heart of the city and we took full advantage.

Margaret Claire Making Dreams Come True

  • 5 of 5

The Margaret Claire is an absolute beauty of a boat. Staying on the water is an incredibly enchanting experience. Joe and Charlene were very accommodating and made my stay super convenient. I would suggest that anyone who has ever entertained the idea of staying on a boat should definitely take a stay on the Margaret Claire!

We had a very nice stay on the Margret Claire. The sunset dinners on deck, plenty of room for our group of four and its convenient location were a few of the many highlights of our visit. The marine community was welcoming and helpful as we're the people in Baltimore as a whole. A true mix of the comforts of home together with the feeling of being on a boat made our stay a fun alternative to the traditional hotel experience.
