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.

We were a little apprehensive about staying on a floating B&B but now we can't wait to go back to the Green Turtle. Karen and Jon were the perfect hosts and we immediately felt like we had known them for ever. We have stayed in many hotels through the years and after awhile they just all look the same. Sitting on the dock at night looking at the bright lights of Boston while enjoying the peace and serenity of our little oasis was simply amazing. The room had more than enough space for us with a small kitchen area and private bath. Having our breakfast brought out to us and enjoying it on the dock while the harbor woke up was the most relaxing experience we've had in a long time.

Logistically we were a 10 minute walk to the USS Constitution where we boarded a water shuttle for $1.70 for a 10 minute ride to Long Wharf in Boston avoiding any traffic or parking issues. At night we made the 5 minute drive to the North End to enjoy a great Italian dinner.

We now feel like part of the Green Turtle family and will definitely be returning to the little oasis in the city....

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!
