Overview

About the property

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

Weekend on the water was wonderfu!

  • 5 of 5

Great house boat and great views of the harbor! Space inside was perfect and having full fridge was great too. Sorry to hear they are closing down this marina. Glad we got to experience it. Donovan was very nice and accommodating! Would definitely do this again!

Nice Boat...Dock location just OK

  • 4 of 5

Very nice clean boat. Great neighborhood. Walk to Fells Point. Dock space was not great. Pinned between other boats so only view was from roof.

Owner's Response: Ahoy Mates We're always glad when guests find that staying on one of our boats is an 'exceptional experience'. And we're always glad to get feedback to help improve that exceptional feeling. We've not had any similar feedback re Scorpious but laundry detenents can sometimes produce skin irritation so we'll review brands. Thanks Cap'n Jimmy

Start to finish we couldn't have asked for a better experience.

  • 5 of 5

The house boat was immaculate and just the perfect size for the two of us. As nice as the place was, the most amazing part of it was the rooftop deck. The largest rooftop deck of all the boats in the marina, it provided incredible and unending water views and the perfect place to have drinks in the evening.

A Fells Point seafood landmark, Captain James Restaurant, is just a few steps away. A must have if you stay here because the food is incredible. Fells Point bars and shops are less than 1/2 a mile walk from the marina. The property manager Donavan was always available and was tremendous in his tour and explanation of the boat. This trip was one we will remember fondly and plan to experience again.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was truly a unique experience. We had stayed on a houseboat before, but this boat was even better. It had everything we needed downstairs and a rooftop deck that made for a lovely Saturday in the sun. The bed in the master bedroom was super comfortable and the split bathroom (one part with sink and toilet and the other with shower) was very convenient. It is a boat and gentle movement must be expected. But even when the wind picked up, the rocking was not a problem and neither of us felt any seasickness. In fact , it was quite soothing. There was a second bedroom that we did not need; a second couple could have joined us and the space would still have accommodated all of us without feeling cramped. It was so much better than being locked up in a hotel room. Great seafood restaurant across the parking lot was a bonus. Fells Point was a full of great shops, restaurants and bars, within walking distance or a very short drive. Forget Inner Harbor, this is the place to go for good food and fun. Fort McHenry, where our national anthem was written in the harbor, was a short drive away and worth visiting.

I highly recommend this boat for a vacation or a getaway, any time of year.

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.
