If you're looking for something just a bit different, the Salt Dancer is for you. This is a beautifully kept yacht, acting like a bed-and-breakfast, with wonderful hosts. The boat stays docked in the marina, so no worries about getting seasick.
We booked the king room, and the room is spacious (for a yacht), with a private bathroom, head, and shower. Syd and Edie, the hosts, are most accommodating, and Syd cooks lovely breakfasts every morning. Unexpected bonus - two St. Bernard dogs live onboard and are very well behaved and friendly.
Location is great - a short walk to downtown Stuart, and not far from the area parks and other attractions. If you want privacy, you can have it. If you want to meet other people, there's a salon where other guest gather. We met people from all over the world during our three-day stay.
If you're looking for a resort hotel with a fridge and TV in your room, this is not for you. If you're looking for something different, something romantic, something peaceful and relaxing, then you have to try the Rain Dancer.
