Houseboat, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4) Offering lower rates for early June! Please call for details. Newport has always been a vacation destination. While the City by the sea offers a host of accommodations, why not make this vacation a unique experience with your very own home on the water aboard the Lilypad, a charming, spacious houseboat moored in beautiful Newport Harbor. You can't get much closer to the sea unless you are a fish!

Please call for details. Newport has always been a vacation destination. While the City by the sea offers a host of accommodations, why not make this vacation a unique experience with your very own home on the water aboard the Lilypad, a charming, spacious houseboat moored in beautiful Newport Harbor. You can't get much closer to the sea unless you are a fish! Start your day with a fresh cup of coffee while taking in the view of the harbor through the broad windows that offer a constant changing seascape. Swim in the refreshing salt water off of Lilypad deck. Stretch out and relax in the sun on the spacious top deck, then as early evening arrives enjoy a sunset drink as the sky turns a dusky pink or with any luck 'red sky at night sailors delight'. If you want to take in the action in downtown Newport , no need to drive, Lilypad offers free water taxi service to down town and back to the houseboat, just minutes away. So you can enjoy the evening without worry of traffic and who will be the designated driver. An added bonus is the water taxi across the harbor gets you up and close to many of the magnificent yachts, both sail and power, and under a full moon it can't be beat. Or if peace is what your soul craves, just relax with a book aboard the Lilypad, pausing to glance up at various sailboats that make their way to a day of sailing at sea. If you book the Lilypad July 4th week. You will have front row and top deck seating on board to view Newport's fantastic display of ceremonial fireworks under the stars! For the music enthusiasts the Newport Folk and Jazz festivals are some of the best in the world. Which are held at Historical Fort Adams State Park. Lilypad is moored next to Fort Adams. The water taxi will pick up you and your guests from the Lilypad bring you to the festivals, downtown and back to the Lilypad as often as needed. Of course, this being a houseboat, you need to be mindful of services we take for granted on land. Be conscious of your water consumption, become friendly with on board generator when running various appliances... but all this your affable hostess Danielle will explain when she greets you on board and is just a phone call away. Make your next trip to Newport an adventure to remember, every resort offers hotel accommodations, but how often do you get to live on a houseboat? Feel free to bring your own provisions and cook on board. If you prefer not to cook we can provide catering/provisioning for small intimate dinners, birthday and cocktail parties! The Lilypad will be available year round. We bring the Lilypad to a marina in downtown Newport October15-May15 where she will be dockside. There is a charming boating community within the marina. Filled with classic sailboats and powerboats of all sizes. While staying onboard during this time period you will have access to a indoor, heated pool and sauna. You will also be in walking distance to great restaurants, stylish boutiques and historical landmarks. Enjoy the views from Lilypads upper deck of Newport Harbor and the colorful sunsets of the cooler season. There are a lot of festivals and events to enjoy during the fall and winter months and the city by the sea is beautifully decorated for the holiday season.More
