My husband and I and another couple shared the Green Turtle Floating B&B this past weekend. It has two comfortable rooms, with two bathrooms and small kitchenette. It was amazing! Karen and Jon know how to make everything perfect. They are very friendly, fun and accommodating. The breakfast every morning was on point! We were expecting a small continental breakfast,... More

Our tip to Boston was amazing. The owners of the Green Turtle Floating Bed and Breakfast, John and Karen made us feel like we were family. They assisted us with all aspects of our vacation to Boston. The Green Turtle 1 was very clean, and well kept. Our room was very clean, well stocked with water, assorted juices, a 12... More

Yes, it kind of looks like a floating double-wide but don't let appearances fool you. The Green Turtle is a terrific place to stay, with comfortable clean rooms, and wonderful breakfasts. Drinks on the dock, gently rocked to sleep at night - what else could make an already exciting graduation weekend all the more memorable & enjoyable for our multi-generational... More

My husband and I and another couple had the most wonderful 4 day stay on the Green Turtle Floating B&B in the Navy Shipyard. Karen and John are absolutely the best hosts making sure we were comfortable and answering our many questions about places to visit, restaurants and how to get around Boston without a car. It's close to "The... More

We stayed at the Green Turtle, specifically "Andante", Green Turtle III, for 2 nights. Man do I wish it was more. Karen and Jon were terrific; super helpful, knowledgeable about the area, activities, and offered us great restaurant recommendations. Our vessel was clean, well kept and beautifully appointed. They stock your fridge with drinks, yogurt, and your galley with snacks,... More

Had an excellent stay on the Green Turtle 3 over the Boston marathon, for a relaxing and very comfortable stay. Great hosting from Karen & Jon. Would definitely stay there again if return to Boston. The current location is a short trip into Boston, but I understand the turtles will be relocating nearer to the city centre.

When planning our family's Spring Break to Boston, I searched "Best Bed and Breakfast in Boston". I found several rankings and all placed The Green Turtle at the top. Through an inexplicable stroke of luck, The Green Turtle II had vacancy during our 5 night stay in the Boston area. After our stay and the hospitality my wife and I... More

I surprised my wife with a weekend in Boston for our 27th Wedding Anniversary. After reading incredible Trip Advisor reviews for Green Turtle B&B, I visited the website to check availability. Much to my amazement, a unit was available. I quickly reserved the weekend. The day we arrived was the grand reopening of Pier 8. The docks were all brand... More

It was so much fun to stay in a houseboat -- something I've always wanted to do. We loved the water views out the windows, very attractive decor, great breakfast delivered to our door, kitchenette (with fridge, coffee maker and drinks/snacks), good wifi, warm and helpful hosts (even got a jump from John when our battery was dead!) The sunset... More
