vacation rental description

The White Elephant Floating Inn is a one-of-a-kind wooden houseboat lovingly built from scratch on a steel hull by a single person over a period of about five years. It features beautifully finished wood paneled walls, exposed wood beams and inlaid hardwood floors. The main stateroom features a custom-built king size platform bed with headboard, two large closets and hexagonal stained-glass windows. Extra guests can be accommodated by a queen size sleep sofa and an inflatable Aerobed located in the main salon. In addition we have just built two more private staterooms and an additional bathroom on the second level of the boat. Unlike your typical boat, the bathroom has a full sized shower with massage shower head, and a solid brass sink sunken into a slab of redwood. The kitchen includes a full-size fridge, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and plenty of dishes, glassware, cutlery and pots and pans.

houseboat rental amenities

WiFi is included free with the rental. The boat is fully air-conditioned and heated. Laundry facilities (as well as additional on-shore bathrooms and showers) are conveniently located right at the marina. Also right in the marina is the Tavern on the Water, a restaurant and bar with a great view of the Boston Skyline, and on-shore grilling and picnic facilities. We provide an iron, ironing board, hairdryer, and loads of bathroom products such as soaps, shampoos, and lotions. We even include lots of cooking ingredients such as coffee, herbs, spices, condiments, etc... The boat is large enough to comfortably accommodate up to 10 guests. It is fully air-conditioned and heated and has a large roof sun deck with a gas grill. All sheets and towels are provided. All this for less than the price of a regular hotel room at any of the nearby hotels!
