The Green Turtle I is a floating houseboat B & B as luxurious as it is unique. Set in historic Boston Harbor, the Green Turtle I offers an expansive view of Boston along with the comfort and amenities of a modern B & B. There are 2 private suites aboard Green Turtle I. We have numerous dining choices from bagels to world famous fine dining.
Enjoy the comforts of a bed and breakfast and the privacy of a hotel room. The suite has a kitchenette and a private bathroom en suite. The Green Turtle was designed for comfort above all and the only reminder your floating in Boston Harbor is the sound of the gulls, motion of the sea and reflection of the ocean dancing on the ceiling.
Relax with a delightful breakfast while reclined on our dock chairs or sip gourmet coffee from the comfort of a well placed rattan chair. Please see our website www.greenturtlebb.com to see what guests are saying.
This was the best Christmas Ever! Staying on the Green Turtle was the Greatest!
Stepping onto the Green Turtle worries fade, time ends, dreams awake.
Jon & Karen were delightful hosts and the accommodations were fabulous! Would highly recommend this to anyone!
Our stay could not have been better. After the 1st night we decided to stay an extra night we loved it so much. So we got a chance to stay on both the house boat and the yacht. I preferred the house boat, my husband liked the yacht better. But both were superb! From beginning to end every detail was considered. John and Karen greeted us like old friends and gave some excellent local recommendations. Getting to know them was one of the best parts of our stay. I mentioned my husband wished he could fish and John immediately led him to some fishing gear and even have him bait. My hubby was in seventh heaven! He fished right in front of our room. I had a hard time getting him to leave the boat to sightsee in Boston. We spent one whole day just hanging out at the Marina, it was so pleasant. The breakfasts were yummy too! The room was clean and spacious. The value fantastic for what you get. When you figure the parking is free and easy; and it was so simple to get into the city, it was the perfect location. The house boat felt more like a regular hotel room and was very comfortable, especially the bed. We loved having the kitchen facilities. We got excellent seafood from a nearby restaurant that had great food but very little ambience. We brought it back to the boat and actually made two meals out
If you are looking to find fault, the only thing would be the airport noise. The Marina is directly across from Logan Airport and the planes are pretty loud. But we had fun watching them land and take off over the water. And they never seemed to fly at times when it would bother, like late at night or early morning. We noticed the sound a few times, but it never bothered us. Still if you are very picky or noise sensitive, be aware of this.
We nada wonderful time thanks to our hosts, Karen and Jon. Wonderful breakfasts every morning, great way to start the day. Our room on the houseboat was lovingly decorated, outfitted with a frig and microwave too! It was a treat to watch the sunsets from the pier, and to be gently rocked to sleep by the motion of the waves each night. A very special place.
Unique vacation venue. Relaxing atmosphere, clean and fully stocked houseboat. The hosts John and Karen couldn't be more friendly and accommodating. Easy access by train to Boston. Breakfast was delivered at our time of choice, and was delicious. Was on my bucket list, and hope to go back there one day!
We had a great time at the Green Turtle. Jon and Karen made us very comfortable and feel very much at home. Breakfast was delivered at a time of your choice, and was very good. Our room was beautiful. Very different, waking up in the morning, and seeing the bay just outside. We are looking forward to going their again someday. We would highly recommend it. Diane & Ben
The Green Turtle is realy different. Far away from the busy city we slept well with the gentle movement by the waves. Sitting on the path with a sundowner - this is relaxation. The both rooms of the houseboat are large enough and well equiped. Karen & Jon has been very kind and we have enjoyed our stay. The only blemish is the noise of the close Logan Airport at daytime. But this is not really disturbing, it is special in a different way. Come and see!
