Jon and Karen met us and quickly made us feel at home. Gave us good directions to get around Boston quickly. There service and attention was outstanding. The room we stayed in was very nice and we loved it. Our location in the harbor had very nice decks to view the harbor. We had plenty of snacks, soft drinks, etc.... More

First thing Thank you Karen and Jon for making us feel comfortable and welcomed. My good friend and I stayed in the Sea Turtle Suite the first night and the Green Turtle III the second night. Great location to chat, relax and enjoy. All details were greatly appreciated. Delicious breakfast brought to us at our requested time, complimentary snacks, beverages... More

We stayed on the Green Turtle with friends. Jon and Karen did an excellent job of getting us settled and making us feel welcome. The quarters were a little tight, but I'm sure that is to be expected. I'd never slept on a boat before.

The only way to make your Boston trip perfect is to stay at the Green Turtle. A piece of heaven, afloat at the Charlestown Marina. Your hosts, Jon and Karen, will make sure you are well fed and lack for nothing. We had a chance for a beach day and they graciously provided beach chairs, towels, and sunscreen. Take their... More

We stayed at Green Turtle I with our parents and son taking both suites on the house boat. The experience was truly unique. Jon and Karen are the nicest hosts and provided every kind of convenience. Jon picked us up from parking at Pier 8 and moved all our bags. Breakfast was wonderful both days and we can enjoy it... More

We stayed one night in the Sea Turtle suite. It was a fabulous stay and we will definitely be coming back! Karen and Jon were superb hosts on all aspects of our stay - from making the reservation, meeting us at the marina, getting us settled, giving us tips on things to do/places to eat, and providing a wonderful hot...

We loved everything about this trip! Staying on the boat was so much fun. Jon and Karen bring a wonderful breakfast each morning. They are so hospitable thinking of everything to make your stay unforgettable. We would go back just to stay on the boat again we loved everything about it!

We had an excellent stay at the Green Turtle. We landed late in the evening from the UK but John and Karen were there to meet and greet us warmly whilst at the same time recognising we were ready to crash. Next morning after a peaceful night on a super comfortable bed we awoke to a lovely breakfast and John's... More

A really lovely experience. The bed was extremely comfortable and the breakfast is fabulous. Sitting out on the dock in the evening was a serene and relaxing experience. Watched the boats go by & the planes taking off from the airport while sipping on some wine. Jon was extremely helpful explaining the best way to get around and recommending restaurants.... More
