Not much to say that hasn't been said already - we found the great reviews to be quite accurate. We stayed here 2 nights, and it was really memorable and unique anniversary / belated honeymoon. The highlights were the harbor view, the impeccable accommodations, little details like the swans, complimentary snacks, rocking to sleep like being in a huge hammock, and the harbor walk that you can take all the way into the North End. Plentiful transportation and parking, but we ended up walking into town each day because the weather was so fair and mild. Charlestown itself was so peaceful and quiet and a great way to wind down each day. And of course, the fantastic hosts Karen and Jon who give you a super breakfast each morning, discreetly placed at your door at the time you request! This kind of personalized and friendly service is what sets this place apart and above 5-star hotels we have stayed at previously! Will be back for sure! Thanks, Anita and Dan

Had great time with wife and 13 yr. old daughter. Perfect location with great nighttime view of Boston, Altho we live on Cape Cod we were not familiar with Charlestown and we were surprised how interesting and educational the surrounding area was. Recommend Tavern on the Water for dinner-can walk to it and sits at end of pier. Karen makes a great breakfast. Can catch stripers and blues off the dock when they are around so bring your pole.

A BIG surprise in Boston Harbor. Clean, comfortable accomodations - very homey. Cheerful, friendly hosts serving delicious breakfasts. Super views of the harbor, esp. at night. Harbor Walk to Boston a bonus. Wish we could have stayed longer.

What a wonderful gift for our anniversary. A very unique bed and breakfast. Very relaxing and excellent views of the harbor. VERY CLEAN! Breakfast was great. Warm, friendly, helpful hosts. We have already told all our friends and family they have to experience being rocked to sleep.

With such great reviews we knew this was the place to stay in Boston. We booked well ahead in order to get our reservation and were delighted with our choice. While Trip Advisor is usually right on with choices there have been a few occasions where we were surprised at the ratings so going into this we felt good but always a little cautious. In this case the reviews and the place were a great match. Karen and Jon who live right next door on their boat were wonderful. The advice given and their thoughtfulness were A+. We had a car and although there is parking on the dock Karen said we should return it as we wouldn't need it. We were pleased we did as there were short walks to transportation into town. We eleceted to do the Old Town Trolley which gave us a 2 day pass enabling us to get a sense of the city, make stops along the way and use it for transportation home (just a few blocks from stop 3). The room on the boat made perfect use of the space, everything clean and what you needed in a small space. Goodies were left in a basket on the counter as well as a small fridge to keep things in. A small table with chairs by a window was the perfect place to enjoy the wonderful breakfast brought down each day to accomodate your desired time. I can get motion sick so I was a little concerned but the lovely movement of the boat was more like being rocked to bed. We would return here without hesitation. While the price isn't inexpensive, there are houseboat rentals on the same dock with no services, no breakfast, renting for more money. This is really an experience and the best way to enjoy Boston. A must do - worth waiting for.
