* B&B Afloat at Constitution Marina
(28 Constitution Road, Boston)
Let the cool sea breeze coax you to sleep at night, and by morning, wake up to a serene backdrop of marmalade sunrise stretching across the Boston Harbor. Bed & Breakfast Afloat takes a very unique approach to your cozy B&B getaway, with all of the luxuries and comforts of a regular hotel. The catch? Your hotel room is an awesome ‘seaworthy vessel!’ This B&B provides guests with the best of both worlds – enjoying the magnificent cityscape and literally being right on the water. It is conveniently minutes away from popular sites, trendy shopping and delicious food that Boston has to offer; at the same time you get to enjoy a relaxing sea vacation.
The concierge is available to book romantic Dinner Cruises, Whale Watching, the infamous Boston Duck Tours, and much more. One of B&B Afloat’s most popular vessels open for stay, a vintage sailboat named Rozinante, is usually available for intimate, private cruises along the harbor. Feel like eating in? Six poolside gas grills on are available for cookouts, so you can kick back in the privacy of your personal boat deck and enjoy a glass of vino with dinner. The gorgeous pool is heated all year, and surrounded by plush chairs, tables and umbrellas…what a treat!
