This was our second trip on the Draco and it was just as great as all our other houseboat rentals. The location couldn't be more convenient. The view is relaxing. The marina neighbors were friendly. The bed was comfy. What else can I say?? We'll be back!
So glad to hear you had another great stay with us!! Thanks for the review! Next time you're in town please let us know!

I stayed on the Draco for three nights in May while attending a conference being held at the convention center in Baltimore's inner harbor area. The Draco was the perfect place to stay and a highly recommended alternative to staying at a hotel in the area.
Sleepafloat provided pre-stay information which made it easy to find the marina and the boat. There's ample free parking. While there is a water taxi stop at the marina it takes you to Fell's Point where you need to transfer to another water taxi in order to get to the inner harbor area. I found it more convenient to walk the five short blocks to the Fell's Point water taxi stop. $12 for all day access to the water taxi's made it convenient to come and go between the Draco and the convention center. Late at night it was about a $15 taxi from the convention center/Camden Yards area to the marina. There are tons of restaurants, bars, etc within walking distance from the boat, including a crab shack and a 24 hour take-out place both steps from the boat. And yet, being on the boat itself was so peaceful and quiet at any time of the day. A really great balance of convenience without the crowds. Really, I don't think you could pick a better location for activities in downtown Baltimore.
The Draco is as pictured and had all the conveniences of a stocked apartment rental. I thought the boat felt spacious, comfortable and clean. I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the bed was to sleep in. A couple of times I had questions about something and Sleepafloat always responded promptly to my emails. I also left an item on the boat and Sleepafloat has been most helpful in getting this returned to me.
I enjoyed my stay on the Draco so much that I told my wife that we'll have to plan a weekend trip to stay on the boat later this year. Really great place for a weekend getaway.
