Photos and Description of this Fells Point holiday house

Bedrooms 2, Bathrooms 1, Sleeps 6

Come stay aboard our FABULOUS houseboat, berthed in one of the most convenient marinas for exploring all that Baltimore has to offer!

Custom designed inside and out, this floating home features handcrafted wood trim and cabinetry, an open style main salon and dining area, a fully appointed galley kitchen with household size refrigerator, microwave, sink and cook-top stove, and a private full bathroom with shower stall. Fully furnished, the master bedroom has a Queen bed and memory foam topper and the second stateroom boosts a full sized bed and same topper.

The living room includes a sleeper sofa, 40" flat screen TV and 2 club chairs. There is plenty of space for eating with a dining table and 4 chairs plus a kitchen island that doubles as a breakfast bar with 2 stools! On warm days you can enjoy a meal outside on our HUGE roof deck!

Scorpius was built with the comfort of the renter in mind. We specifically designed our bathroom to allow for both the use of the toilet area and shower independently of one another. There is a pocket door dividing the room in two, allowing access to each area independently.

We've thought of everything so you don't have to! The kitchen is full of brand new appliances, cooking utensils and silverware to make meal preparation a snap. The boat comes with linens and towels, condiments, paper supplies and even a Kuerig coffeemaker with pods for easy one step coffee anytime!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The only thing better than being in Baltimore for the Sailabration Blue Angels Show and massive fireworks display was being on the Scorpius for the wonderful weekend!

We had never considered a house boat before, but hotel prices were higher than normal because of so many visitors to the City. It was great. The boat was immaculate, the beds were firm and comfortable and the tv was perfect for watching the Orioles beat the Yankees!

No one had a better view of the Blue Angels and the fireworks than we did from the top deck, well equipped with comfortable chairs.

The location was perfect, lots of restaurants, etc nearby.

We hope to board the Scorpius for a future adventure.

Thanks! Janet

Very nice stay in Baltimore

  • 4 of 5

We rented the houseboat Scorpious for a birthday weekend celebration. The location was excellent, between Fells Point and Canton. Both locations were very walkable, as was Patterson Park. The waterfront walkway was very nice. Markets and liquor stores are close by. The houseboat itself was very nice, with two separate bedrooms. It had all the appliances and kitchen tools we needed. The only complaint was the lack of bathroom hand towels and hand soap. I was surprised and displeased that we had to pay an additional cleaning fee. After all, when you stay in a hotel, there is not a separate cleaning fee. Overall we had a very pleasant stay, but it was expensive. The local site manager, Donovan, was very nice. We would consider staying in houseboats in other locations.

Amazingly comfortable, and the separate shower area was a nice feature. Living space was roomier than expected. Very clean! Kitchen was well equipped, with an island.

Lovely houseboat. Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time on this houseboat. It was spacious, clean and has an amazing view. Having sunset dinners on the roof deck was priceless!

The location is very convenient with a water taxi right next door to take you to several inner harbor locations. Our neighbors at the marina were also very friendly and helpful when our car had some issues starting in the parking lot.

I would recommend this to anyone. Such a great alternative to a traditional hotel room!

Peaceful respite in Baltimore Harbor

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this lovely boat. It is amazing how peaceful it is having morning coffee on the deck of the boat while the city is waking up. The beds are comfortable, plenty of space for watching tv, or eating dinner. But I prefer eating on the deck, there is a table and chairs. Donovan was very helpful in getting us situated on the boat. There are plenty of places to walk to, but UBER made getting to further Baltimore spots really easy.

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time aboard the Scorpius. It is located in a great area that has lots of options for food and nightlife. The boat is open and clean. The interior is and furnishing are very nice and it has a cozy feel to it. The marina where it is docked is quiet and well maintained. Sleep afloat was very easy to book with, extended our stay with no problem twice, and very responsive. We had a very positive experience, and I will happily recommend everyone I know to stay with sleep afloat!
