The space

Please read ALL instructions and Rules! `~) Sleeps up to 4 but 2 is the perfect romantic getaway. Master V berth in bow is as wide as a King at head and tapers to a V at your feet. Mariah has a two burner stove and hand pump sink in Galley (Kitchen) and one in the bathroom but you will probably not want to eat in but will rather take in Bayfield's cafes! `~) Mariah also has a traditional Ice box for keeping food and drinks cold and holds up to 4 blocks of ice good for several days! There is full shore power for electronic and there are lights on board but DO Bring flashlights as power can go out during storms or for other reasons. The boat locks from the outside if you need to secure things in the boat but we suggest keeping valuables in your car even tho Bayfield is EXTREMELY safe! Last season was a glowing success with everyone cleaning up after themselves and finding it in great shape! Thanks all! This year has been a bit problematic with people not cleaning it as well as the next guest would like! People do Love Mariah but she is a old boat and that said it can appear that it is not as clean as a brand new apartment or a new yacht. She is also self serve/self clean so it is your responsibility to clean after you leave for the next visitor. IF you find it dirty please advise immediately and I will credit you for your trouble and charge the last person for leaving it un tidy. It has worked very well but it is not perfect! It can be dusty in the boat yard so if the deck is dusty or dirty take the pail (or use a hose that is nearby) in the lockers and wash her down! `~) Its normal boat care. Bring some old towels for wiping things down. *** I require a phone contact if you are not verified and prefer it with everyone please! Contact me for more info and directions. "OTHER THINGS TO NOTE" See below for More details please! You WILL need to email me from your own private email NOT the AIRBNB thread because AIRBNB censors our conversations and does NOT Allow Attachments or photographs such as my Map to Boat (website hidden) Do not miss the Fish(Lake Superior Whitefish) and Chips at the Beach club to your right after getting off Ferry at Madeline Island!

A great, and completely unique, experience.

The boat was awesome! If you are looking for an authentic boat experience, this is it! The bathroom and shower were a short walk away and clean. Everyone around the area is very friendly. Would stay Again.

This is one of the coolest places I have stayed yet! Bayfield is an incredible town with beautiful scenery, and Stephen's is the perfect place to be for access to everything. It was nice to watch the stars from the dock, and still be close to a fully furnished bathroom nearby. Would stay here again :)

Restroom in the boathouse is a little gross and boardwalk leaving to it was sinking into the water. Boat definitely showing its age. Exposed wiring, no smoke detector.
Stephan User Profile
Response from Stephan:
I am very surprised by Kyle's review tho in retrospect he was very uncommunicative. I asked him to call me to explain the bathroom situation which is NOT sinking into the Lake nor is it Gross as it is cleaned meticulously everyday! I am not sure what he expected or saw? The high water due to historically high water in Lake Superior had risen up to the dock level is caused by a phenomena called a Seiche (inland Sea tide of sorts) which pushes water up even higher. in any case he was rude and will Not be welcomed back again!

The boat is very charming and cute and great for couples. We loved being right in town and we didn't move our car our whole stay because we could walk everywhere. It's seriously so cute and calming to sleep in a cozy little boat. Some things to know before going is that the bed is a triangle, but it's still big enough for a couple to sleep in together. And try to arrive when the sun is up, it just makes it easier to find the boat! There are a lot of boats around that area.

We had a wonderful time staying on the Mariah. Stephan was very prompt at returning my emails and we loved that the boat was right downtown!
