BOSTON'S ORIGINAL B&B AFLOAT: BEST LOCATION, CLOSE TO ATTRACTIONS

Boston Yacht Rental Photos and Description

Yacht, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

If you are looking for an absolutely unique and romantic B&B experience to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, engagement, or wedding, the Golden Slipper awaits! It is an ideal romantic getaway for two, but also a fun adventure for four. Two private staterooms are offered with plenty of privacy for both couples, and room to relax on the yachts front and aft decks.

The Golden Slipper, Boston’s B&B “Afloat” is a traditional Catalina Chris Craft. The 40’ Yacht is located at Lewis Wharf, in the heart of historical Boston. The boat stays moored at the slip and you come and go as you please. This is a private party yacht accommodating up to six guests, with a continental breakfast left for you. Cruises of Boston Harbor and dinners are available upon request, during your stay.

The Golden Slipper offers the unique experience of having a Bed and Breakfast, with the opportunity to cruise Boston Harbor, for a day or sunset cruise. You return to your slip, the innkeepers leave, and you continue to enjoy your yacht for the rest of your visit.

In addition to the two private staterooms, the main salon accommodates 2 more people on a double berth sofa. This layout is perfect for a family vacation, reunion, or “girls' getaway”. The business traveler can enjoy a unique, comfortable setting, as well, and entertain clients with a sunset dinner cruise.

Guest comments from all over the world describe the Golden Slipper as a very positive experience, and a unique getaway in a very urban setting. Our guests love our fabulous location, within walking distance to many historic attractions. Escape to the boat for peaceful moments of relaxation on the aft deck, enjoying excellent views of the busy Boston Harbor. In the evening be rocked to sleep with a gentle motion, and wake up to coffee and muffins on the deck, greeting a new day in historical Boston Harbor.

We look forward to welcoming you on board!!

After a scenic, water taxi trip from Logan airport to Lewis Wharf where the boat is docked, we were warmly greeted by the owner/host. In addition to giving us the operational specifics of the Golden Slipper, she provided us with an overview of the local area, complete with recommendations for dining, shopping and exploring Boston. The boat amply served the needs of my family of 5 with comfortable beds, a very workable galley, and even a great selection of Dvds! Our favorite pastime was board games on the flying bridge, followed closely by exploring Little Italy, Faneuil Hall, and the rest of Boston, which felt as though it was just a few steps off the boat. A block away is a fantastic, full market called the Golden Goose, with a wonderful selection of produce, deli items and wine. The Golden Slipper played a big part in making our Boston vacation one my family and I will always remember. Thanks!

My family & I stayed aboard the Golden Slipper for the Fourth of July holidays. A few of us traveled from the slip at Lewis Wharf up the Charles River, through the locks, and anchored near the band shell, where we were joined by a few friends. Holly was our captain & she was very professional and proficient at the helm. Gretchen served a wonderful meal, and the evening was thoroughly enjoyable. The following morning was the 4th, more family members arrived, Jack the mate (Gretchen's husband), was great about ferrying everyone back & forth to shore. We were able to walk around & check out the activities, then we all gathered aboard for the concert and the magnificent firewords that followed. There was plenty of food and beverages of all types.
The following day we made the return trip to the slip at Lewis Wharf. It was the adventure of a lifetime for my young grandaughters, and something we will all cherish for years to come.

This is the latest of many stays on the Golden Slipper. I have stayed with family members and many friends and have always enjoyed myself. All of the people that I have introduced the boat to feel the same way. It is spacious and comfortable and there is nothing like falling asleep to the gentle rocking of a boat.
It is only 2 subway stops from the airport and there is also a water taxi available, which is fun.It's proximity to the North End with wonderful Food and History can't be beat.
There is much to do along the Waterfront and you can be to any part of the city in a matter of minutes.

I stayed on the Golden Slipper several years ago and was not disappointed with this return visit. It is an easy walk to see the sights of Boston and any easy walk to enjoy the great restaurants this town has to offer. But the best thing is to return in the evening and sip wine on the deck while the sky silently darkens and the stars come out. There is no sleep like that which comes from gently rocking to sleep on the water. Gretchen could not have been more helpful about the boat and the things to do in Boston. She is delightful and full of stories. Can't wait until I go again.

Our family rented the Golden Slipper with the Captain to celebrate my daughter's 18th Birthday! We went to George's Island in Boston Harbor and docked to tour Ft. Warren. We also walked the beaches and trails, searced for beach glass and shells on the shore.
Upon returning to Lewis Wharf we had appetizers and a Bar-B Q Dinner before our hosts departed and left us for the evening. We toured Fanuel Hall,Quincy Market, and the North End. The accomodations were extremely comfortable and the location to activities was key for the teenagers. My husband and I enjoyed the solace of the back deck for evening cocktails and conversation. Will definately go back again!
