Docked at Harbor Marina in historic Newburyport, the Houseboats at Newburyport offer the most unique experience on the Merrimack River. With a front row view of the magnificent harbor –surrounded by beautiful yachts– the houseboat is the ideal getaway for family and friends.
When not lounging on one of the Houseboat’s two decks, guests can explore this historic city by foot. With its charming boutiques, exciting restaurants, local attractions and culture, Newburyport is the ideal getaway for a weekend, a week or even longer. Beach goers, kayakers and bird enthusiasts will find all types of outdoor experiences. With its pristine beaches, magnificent ocean and world-famous wildlife refuge, Plum Island is cherished by locals and visitors alike.
“Dockside,” our first houseboat moored at Hilton’s Marina (behind the Black Cow), is a one bedroom with bathroom, loft bunk, living room with pull out sofa, kitchenette/dining nook and upper and lower decks.
