We stayed here, 12th to 14th October, at the end of our 3 week trip to New England.
What a fabulous stay it was .
The room was splendid. Clean and comfy with the outstanding views that all the reviews comment on. Looking across at all of the lights at night was sublime. It was hard to go and visit Boston itself as we would have happily sat and watched the world go by. To cap it off we took a childlike delight in the gentle rocking of the house and the fact that the next morning we were 12 feet higher on the tide. It had moved the whole pier up.
Breakfast were wonderful, at a time of our choosing, including a very early start on the day we had to leave. We had to be at Logan for 6am! The fact that Jon and Karen were happy to get up and make breakfast for us at 5:30am sums up the way in which were looked after: with care and friendliness. John took all of our baggage to the taxi as well.
They were full of useful tips and information: which we used and needed.
If you are debating about where to stay in Boston don't hesitate and go to the Green Turtle. If we lived in the area we would be back- and there is only one other B & B in Callender Scotland that we have gone back to.
- 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.
