We stayed for 2 nights in the Loggerhead Suite and loved it. Our room was bright with very moden furnishings & bedding. We had a small well stocked refrigerator which they replenished, coffee pot w/fabulous coffee & various teas available, cups, glasses etc. to make our stay so pleasant. Our hosts, Karen and Jon were so helpful and knowledgable regarding everything from transportation, dining, and tours. Jon helped us with our luggage which I was very grateful as we were walking on floating docks that were constantly moving. They even asked us when we would like to have breakfast, checked for any food allergies and let us know what exactly we were having. One of the reasons we were in Boston was to partake in Boston's Restaurant Week with my bother & sister-in-law who came in early on our first night to sit with us on the pier. Although we had 1 day of heavy rain, we were able to sit out on the last day and have breakfast, watch the ducks & boats go by, talk to other travelers, and watch Karen fish & Jon check his lobster traps. If you would like to have the luxury of lazing around, be lulled to sleep by a little rocking and be so close to Boston's sightseeing and nightlife, the Green Turtle is the place to stay.

From the booking process all the way through our stay was perfect. Inn keepers John and Karen have every detail covered. The room was immaculate and the bed was dreamy. Karen even cooked an amazing dinner from the fish we caught while on a local charter. Breakfast every morning was very well prepared. We feel as though we found a B&B that we will visit for years to come, as well as made some new friends.

Overall it was nice and we would stay again. If you don't like boats or are looking for a hotel like experience, this is not for you. If you are looking for something different, sunrises, sunsets, ocean breezes, some R &R but still want the option to do tourist stuff this is the place. Inn keepers were nice and we never felt uncomfortable. We are not B&B people and didn't feel obligated to make small talk. The place is super clean and nicely decorated.

It's not often that where we stay becomes the destination, but that was the case with our too brief stay at the Green Turtle. We just LOVED relaxing in our deck chairs, with the gentle rock & sway of the pier. The room was lovely, fabulous bed, and all our needs attended to by the very helpful owners. Sleeping at night, with the windows open, was just incredible. We'll be back!

SO glad I found the Green Turtle on Trip Advisor after tiring of the same old hotel options. The Green Turtle was one of the nicest places I've ever stayed, and it was definitely the most unique!

As soon as we pulled up to the dock, Jon greeted us with a parking pass (phew) and a wagon to pull our luggage down to the marina. Karen gave us an informative tour of the room and local maps. We walked over to Tavern on the Water (5-minute walk) and then took the $1.70 ferry to the aquarium, where we wandered through Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall before heading over to the North End for oysters and lobster rolls at Neptune Oyster. It was a 90-degree day, but we ended up walking back to the Green Turtle (clutching our desserts from Mike's Pastry) and it couldn't have taken more than a half-hour. We ate our cannoli on the dock as the sun went down...what an amazing way to end our vacation.

We only stayed one night, but it may have been the most perfect night ever! The bed was unbelievably comfortable, the shower was great, the snacks in the room were impressive, and the view was incredible.

The room had silverware, a refrigerator, microwave, coffeepot, corkscrew, etc, and plenty of local brochures/magazines. I wish we had had time to play with the chess set on the dock!

Karen and Jon were friendly, helpful and hospitable. I wish we could have stayed longer and I'd love to go back!
