One way I have made money for my travels is by becoming an affiliate with www.Airbnb.com. I would like to start off with saying hello! thanks for coming to my blog ! If you have plans to travel please book your listing through any of the links I have provided so I can get a little kiss from the Virtual gods 🙂

I have created a list on interesting stays that are still near or in the water 🙂 I have also created posts for those who are interested in staying in Sailboats, Power boats, Catamarans, tree houses, unique stays, and this one 🙂 

 

So for starters ! How would you feel about staying in a SUBMARINE!

” located in Manitowoc Wisconsin, make history when you spend the night on USS Cobia, our fully restored World War II submarine.


The Wisconsin Maritime Museum has been the home of USS Cobia for 50 years. Founded as a submariners’ memorial in 1969, we have grown to be the state’s maritime museum with exhibits on shipwrecks, models, car ferries & subs.

SubBnb sleeps up to 65 people in sailors’ bunks throughout the boat. The listed price includes the first five guests. Additional adults are $50 each, Children/Students $30 each.

The space
USS Cobia is the best preserved submarine in the country. It has been meticulously restored with amenities added like heat and air conditioning, making it perfect for year-round overnight visits. 

Your stay will be as unique as the submarine. No two visits are exactly alike. With more than 65 different places to sleep, you get to choose your own adventure on USS Cobia. 

During your stay, you’re welcome to explore the submarine with a dedicated staff member. They will be your point of contact and on-site all evening. We will be proud to take you on a personalized tour through the boat. 

USS Cobia is only accessible via stairs and there are seven bulkhead doors to climb through. The only access to get out onto the boat is through the museum. 

We provide bedding and toiletries. A light breakfast (from a veteran-owned company, of course) will be served in the morning. We will also happily arrange a private screening from our selection of WWII movies in the museum theater. Playing cards and board games are available for your use in the sub’s wardroom. Your stay includes admission to the museum during business hours. 

Because we are an operational museum, our policies are a little different. You’re welcome to stay several nights, but we will pack up and secure your items during the hours the museum and sub are open for tours. 

The restrooms on Cobia are 76 years old. They’re lovely, but they’re not functional. The Museum’s more modern restrooms and showers will be accessible to you at all times. 

We’re happy to store your food in the museum’s kitchen. You’re welcome to use the fridge, freezer and microwave there. The kitchen is stocked with coffee, tea and light snacks for you to enjoy during your visit.”

Sleep in a lighthouse on a floating island!

“So many different spaces to explore: On the topside, a sandy palm grove and fountain, open decks with grill and beverage station, tiki lounge, and a lighthouse with amazing views. Below deck there’s a bar, dining and seating area with large enclosed fireplace, nautical artworks, a galley for catering, and a small kitchen. Our Captain’s Quarters has a full bed and a bath with shower/tub, also, a dresser and false fireplace, and spectacular stained glass windows. The Mate’s cabin has a queen bed and dresser. The Sailor’s bunk is 2 twin beds that can be closed off or folded up on the wall to allow for other uses, such as a coat check during events. Arrangements can be made to sleep additional guests in the tiki lounge or on deck in tents with air mattresses. There are currently 2 bathrooms on the vessel, the full bath in the Captain’s Quarters, and a half bath on the foredeck.”
