We stayed at the Green Turtle Floating Bed & Breakfast on October 23rd and 24th. We live in Mass however we enjoy coming to Boston. This was the best and most unique stay I ever had in the city. The owners, Karen and Jon could not be more gracious and helpful with information on the area. The houseboat was even better than we had anticipated, and very easy to get to, with free parking provided right on the pier. The accommodations were immaculate and very comfortable. The location allowed us to view the evening lights, and the sunrises over the city skyline from the deck chairs. We could not get over how peaceful and tranquil it was relaxing on the dock in the evening watching the boats in the harbor. Transportation in the area could not have been easier. The Water Taxi and Ferry were easily accessible and comfortable as well. After taking the Water Ferry to Rowes Wharf we enjoyed the city all day ending in the early evening in the North End for a fantastic dinner. We were served a delicious home cooked breakfast each morning which we enjoyed while watching the scenery from our room. It is obvious that Karen and Jon take great pride in the Green Turtle as it is maintained and furnished perfectly. We would recommend the Green Turtle B&B to anyone coming to Boston. We can’t wait to come back again.
