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

We stayed at this close to home retreat for New Years. Freezing outside but oh, so cozy inside! Karen and Jon are terrific hosts and experts in their field. Delicious, hot breakfasts left outside your door each morning. Warm welcomes while transporting your luggage from the parking lot to the houseboat! They were great tour guides as they educated us...

Great idea for a B&B. We are always looking for something different as we travel a lot. My husband found this for a surprise Birthday present for me. This was just so different and exciting. Karen and Jon could not be nicer hosts. Jon meets you in the parking lot and takes you down to the houseboat. Karen is waiting... More

We booked both suites on the Green Turtle quite a while ago because it looked so amazing. Correct!! It was just perfect for our group of two couples and we couldn't have hoped for better hosts than Karen and Jon. Nothing was too much trouble and they recommended Rossetti's for dinner, don't miss it, we went there 2 nights in... More

We spent Columbus Day weekend and had a great time. The b&b is actually located in Winthrop but right in a beautiful harbor. We were treated like royalty by the owners. We took the advice of John for restaurants, hiking, sight seeing and he was right on every time. Delicious breakfast! With ALL the amenities you could imagine. Stocked little... More
