There are "unique", there are "renovated", there are "friendly", there are "conveniently located", there are "charming" B&Bs all over - but the Green Turtle has all these features, and in spades! UNIQUE: Well, if "houseboat" doesn't fit that category, how about "houseboat, sitting in the Boston Harbor, surrounded by docks with sailboats and yachts softly moving about with the tides... More

my wife and I stayed here for 2 nights whilst on a tour of the Eastern US and wow. What an awesome place in a cool location. Its perfect to hop into Boston with the metro but also in an area with a great small town feel. Karen and John are the best hosts ever, what an Englishman like me... More

We stayed one night on the Green Turtle 3. The location was out of town, but has a view of downtown Boston. Although close to the airport, and there was some noise, we felt it added to the ambiance. The boat was beautiful. It reminded me of the inside of a small log cabin. It was very cozy and intimate.... More

If I could give 10 stars I would. I chose the Green Turtle as a surprise for my water loving husband. I was concerned about the location being so far from the sightseeing we wanted to do in Boston and the proximity to the airport. Neither was a problem at all. 1st- Karen and John welcomed us as if we... More

The Green turtle was one of the best places we have ever stayed. Peaceful, clean, great location and the most beautiful sunset. The inn keepers, Jon and Karen were absolutely wonderful. We stayed for 2 days.......we got to see most of Boston on the Trolley tour, went to a Red Sox game (which we were lucky enough to get free... More

Our 5 night stay at the B&B started out meeting our fantastic hosts Jon/Karen and they were friendly, accommodating, helpful and always available. Our room was lovely and comfortable and we loved coming back to our floating room and sitting on the dock and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. The food was Fantastic and delivered whenever we chose to eat in... More

Karen and Jon could not have been more welcoming and the attention to detail on off shore cruiser Green Turtle III was second to none. We were extremely comfortable on board with plenty of room as we were just two on this vessel that accommodates four. The location at Winthrop provides a lovely contrast to the city - yet the...

My husband and I stayed at The Green Turtle Floating B&B 8/31/14 - 9/2/14. We didn't want to leave. Karen and Jon are the nicest people. They made us feel truly welcome. We stayed in the Sea Turtle Suite. It was so clean, the decor was charming, and the bed was so comfy. Breakfast was always hot and delicious. We... More

We have enjoyed our two nights very much. Karen and Jon are very friendly. The Green Turtle is a special place out from the busy city. Relaxing in the sunny afternoon with a cold wine - perfect. Everytime again.
