Staying on the Green Turtle houseboat with hosts Jon and Karen was a great experience. The cleanliness, the great breakfasts, the views, everything was perfect! Jon's knowledge of the area and directions made the stay in Boston pleasurable and easy to get around.

What can I say other than - "HEAVEN" - on the Boston Harbor!!!! From the time Jon meet us in the parking to the time we left, we felt like part of the family. It is truly rare that one meets such wonderful people. Jon and Karen love their city, and really love sharing their favorite spots. We took their... More

John and Karen are amazing hosts! We were 5 gals on a girls trip for a long weekend and these accommodations far exceded our expectations. Location was wonderful, breakfast was delicious and we slept like babies as the motion of the water rocked us to sleep. We loved having our morning coffee and evening wine on the back of the...

We stayed overnight while visiting friends in Boston. Jon and Karen are super nice- they explained all about the amenities and gave good advice on local travel. I appreciated the snacks and coffee maker in the kitchenette. Only criticism is the A/C was really loud, but once we opened the windows and turned on the fan, the room was so... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Green Turtle 8/8/15- 8/10/15 to celebrate my wife's Birthday. From the moment we arrived and until our departure you couldn't ask for better hosts. The accommodations were of the highest standard and the breakfast was delicious. The cake and banner were a special touch!!!! Thanks John & Karen for a great weekend... More

The hosts are very friendly and a font of information. They were very good about accomodating my dairy-free, gluten-free diet. The food was delicious. There were also some snacks and juices in the kitchenette. Staying on a moored boat was fun - enough motion to feel the water, but not enough to feel sick. The location is good for some... More

We stayed at the Green Turtle II rom 8-14 to 8-21 2015. It was a fabulous stay and Jon and Karen were wonderful. The food was great and Jon was very friendly and very helpful in guiding us where we needed to go and how to get around. They treated us like good friends.

Unfortunately we stayed only one night on the Green Turtle III! It was such an amazing experience and my husband still thinks he never had such a good night's rest before! May it for the waves or the matresses/bedding, it was wonderful and extremely relaxing. We are a family of four with two children, one was only 8 months then,... More

So excited to have arrived and so sad when our stay was complete! This was such a comfortable and relaxing place to call "home" for three nights. Wish we had stay here all five nights in Boston. This floating lodging is close to everything but on the quiet side of the river. Very easy to get everywhere. John and Karen... More

Not living so far away from Boston, the Green Turtle B&B is a must get away. Whether you live near or far! It is a unique experience spending a night or three on the floating boat. My husband and I spent three nights in the floating house/suite. It is close to the North End of Boston and the T station.... More
