Have just returned from an 8 night stay onboard The Green Turtle. Everything that previous reviewers have praised is true. We wanted to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary by doing something different & we certainly found it at he Green Turtle. Jon & Karen are terrific hosts, Karen's Eggs Benedict are to die for as are all the lovely breakfast she provided during our stay.
Nothing was too much trouble - even down to them booking our nightly cab to a different restaurant in the city
The Green Turtle has everything you could wish for & more - we are so glad we didnt book a faceless hotel in the city. many thanks to Tripadvisor, without which we wouldnt' have found this gem. We have vowed to return when the weather is kinder, next June 2012, as we had some very cold wet days last week.
However the warmth and comfort we had on board, as well as the genuine warmth of Jon & Karen's hospitality; meant that a few days of lousy weather could not dampened our enthusiasm for this lovely city & our perfect accommodation.
I only hope that we can make our booking whilst there is availability as many people are rightly discovering this jewel in Boston's crown.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Green Turtle is a floating bed and breakfast as luxurious as it is unique. Set in the historic Charlestown Navy Yard on Boston Harbor, the Green Turtle offers an expansive view of the Boston skyline along with the comfort and amenities of a modern bed and breakfast. The USS Constitution (Old Ironsides), the Bunker Hill Monument and the Freedom Trail are a short walk away. You can take the water ferry to numerous points along the waterfront. There are dining choices from bagels to world famous dining. The Green Turtle houseboat and yachts were designed for comfort above all and the only reminder you are floating in Boston Harbor is the sound of the gulls, motion of the sea and the reflection of the ocean dancing on the ceiling. It is delightful starting your day sipping coffee or enjoying a cold beverage after a day of sightseeing while sitting on your dock chairs or aft deck watching the harbor traffic and city skyline. The Green Turtle Floating Bed and Breakfast offers 3 boat choices. The Green Turtle I is a houseboat offering two private and separate suites and each has 1 queen sized bed with luxury linens.
