In a city full of chain hotels, this floating inn—a refurbished 1946 towboat—is an adventurous way to experience the mighty Mississippi. Permanently moored off Harriet Island Regional Park, the B&B’s four bedrooms and salon offer perfect views of the giant river barges gliding by. The surprisingly comfortable rooms are just big enough to stretch out in, and each has its own fireplace, bathroom, and deck access. A loaf of bread is always left out for feeding the ducks, after which you can sit down to your own decadent breakfast. The free-spirited owner, Liz Miller, who lives aboard, believes you should eat well when on vacation and accordingly serves French toast with caramel apples.

 

Tip: Book ahead to secure the city’s best view of the fireworks during July 4th weekend.

 

Room to Book: The spacious and bright Master’s Quarters, with two sitting chairs by the fireplace, a rooftop deck, and a queen-size brass bed with gorgeous city views.
