Sub Bnb sleeps up to 65 people in sailors' bunks throughout the boat. The listed price includes the first five guests. Additional guests are $50 each.

Location

Manitowoc, Wisconsin, United States

Manitowoc has a long history of shipbuilding. We built schooners here during the 1800s. During World War II, our town built 28 submarines for the war effort. We continue to build luxury yachts and tour vessels at local builders like Burger Boat. You can walk from the museum in almost any direction and immerse yourself in maritime history. The lighthouse, shipyards, car ferry dock and bustling harbor are all nearby. (If you walk in one particular direction you will be immersed in Lake Michigan, so be careful.)

The museum also has a rooftop bar, the Sub Pub! It's open Thursday-Sunday during the summer. The view is unbeatable.

We are only steps away from excellent local restaurants and pubs. A full-service hotel is immediately next door.

The SS Badger docks right across the river from the Museum, making this an easy destination for those traveling across the lake on the car ferry from Ludington, Michigan. Manitowoc is about 30 minutes north of Sheboygan and 45 minutes south of Green Bay.
