An incredible venue from which to explore all that the Portsmouth area has to offer.

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent way to experience the Portsmouth area, including the southern coast of Maine. The owners and property manager are incredible hosts. the 3 boats offered by this property as overnight lodging are clean & spacious. The view of the port of Portsmouth is incredible and it is so relaxing to unwind on the top deck, with one's favorite refreshment in hand, while watching the activity of this historic & vibrant port.

We hope to be back later this summer.

Everything you need in a charming, unique stay! A "must do"!

  • 5 of 5

The houseboat exceeded our expectations! It is newly remodeled, and was exceptionally clean and cozy. The owner was excellent in terms of keeping us informed of everything. George, the Dockmaster, couldn't have been nicer or more accomodating. A short walk to Portsmouth, with plenty to do right there on Badger Island. Great views of Portsmouth, the Naval Base, and the Coast Guard. Our family will definitely be back to relive this amazing experience! 5 stars!!!

Great fun for our weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

I surprised my husband with a weekend on the Vagabond for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. It was everything it said it was. You could stay on the boat and not have to go anywhere or you could explore the area. I enjoyed my first cup of coffee on the top deck in the morning with great views. We were able to walk into Portsmouth from the Marina and have a nice dinner and walk back to the Marina. There is a great restaurant next to the Marina and there is another one just a short walk at the end of the marina road. Captain George was helpful and had great suggestions for dining. We were next to one of their other rental boats who had a party of 3 women celebrating a Birthday. This would be fun for a family or just adults. We will come back again!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Stayed two nights and had a great time. Great views from the roof deck, good space and nice easy walk over the bridge to Portsmouth. A couple of nice restaurants and a coffee shop close by as well. Had terrific communication with Suzanne. And George the dock master was very helpful and a lovely guy. Enjoy!

Really enjoyed our stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great 1st time experience on the houseboat! We definitely want to stay there again. George was a great dock master and helped us with any questions we had and made our stay even better getting to know him! We would love to rent again in the spring when you open again!! Thanks again!!! ⛴

Enjoy the unique experience of living on a boat and take advantage of all that the Seacoast has to offer.

There are plenty of attractions just across the newly remodeled Memorial Bridge in Portsmouth, NH., including restaurants and village shops.

Prescott Park is just a 10 minute walk away and offers outdoor plays, bands and festivals as well as beautiful flower gardens.

Take a 5 minute drive on Route 1 North and you will be at the famous Kittery Outlet Malls where you can spend some time shopping or eat at Bob's Clam Hut which was featured on Food Networks Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

Interested in doing a daytrip? Boston is an hour south, or the beautiful White Mountains of NH are an hour and a half to the north.

A nice drive up the coast of Maine would take you to the quaint coastal villages of York Beach, Ogunquit, Wells and Kennebunkport, which boast gorgeous beaches, shopping and delicious world class cuisine.
