Boston House Boat Rental Photos and Description

2 - Private 1 bdroom suites with private bathroom/shower with fabulous city view

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.

Unsurpassed hospitality

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent 4 wonderful nights in the Loggerhead Suite. Our hosts, Karen and Jon greeted us on arrival and from that moment until we said goodbye, they made you feel as if you were friends you've known for a long time. We've stayed in B&Bs often but have never had the attention we received here. Jon loads your luggage on a wagon and wheels it to your accommodations. Both he and Karen explain in detail all about the surroundings, how to get to the city and restaurants nearby. Breakfasts, made fresh by Karen, are brought by John to your suite at the time you want. You look forward to them. The suite was well stocked with complimentary snacks and beverages such as juices, water, milk and yogurt and replenished as needed. Excellent internet service. The B&B is very close to Logan airport and as such planes are often flying overhead as they land or take-off. They are loud but stop for the night. You will be doing yourself a disservice if you allow this to deter you from staying here. You are in a relaxing location. If you like bass fishing, can do it right from your dock. We can see why Karen and Jon have received so many accolades because of their attention to details.

Wonderful Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for 1 night but we wished we could have stayed for a week! Karen and Jon were such wonderful hosts and so helpful an knowledgable about Boston. The room was absolutely beautiful and comfortable, a nice getaway after a long day touring Boston. We can't wait to go back.

Green Turtle II

  • 5 of 5
Where do I begin? Well, the 45 foot yacht, Green Turtle II, that my sister and I stayed on for 4 nights, was BEYOND BELIEF! It can sleep 6, has two queen staterooms, each with own full bath, a dining area, living room (pull-out bed) and 2 covered outside topside couch areas, one with wet bar and ice maker, other with radio/CD player. The kitchen has microwave and is stocked with everything - yogurt, o.j., Half and Half, soft drinks, coffe, tea and sugars and a basket of snack packs.

Floating comfort and elegance. Fabulous breakfasts brought to our door. Within walking distance of all forms of transportation....MTA, City Water Taxi, land taxi, ferries, and harbor tours.

The topper is the couple who own The Green Turtle b & b! Karen and John are there 24 x 7, living in their own boat, and always a phone call away to find the nearest restaurants or anything else you might require. They are great fun and very gracious. A super duo.

I live nearby, but am still going to find an excuse to stay there again.

Bonnie W. and Dianne B.

Best place to stay in Boston.

  • 5 of 5
It's difficult to decide where to start this review. John and Karen made us feel like we were family. They welcomed us to Boston and to the area and to their home with open arms. They made and delivered a great breakfast every day, they had great and insightful recommendations for us regarding restaurant s and places to visit. They even drove my wife to the start of the Boston Marathon. The houseboat was the perfect size to accommodate us and had everything we needed and more, a stocked refrigerator. The boat rocked us to sleep every night and protected us from the hustle and bustle of the city, but convenient to the many modes of transportation. We would definitely stay there again. It was a great 2 weeks with Karen and John and we are anxious to stay on their 2 new yachts.

A Slice of Paradise in Boston!

  • 5 of 5
The Green Turtle was everything we expected and more. The Inn was easy to find by car and would be very easy by water taxi from the airport. Our room was luxuriously comfortable and we slept like babies with the boat rocking us to sleep each night. Other than the sound of the ocean the boat was very quiet with no city noise even though the city was just across the harbour. We were brought a great breakfast each morning. The Inn is within walking distance of the ferry, bus route, tours and the North End. We will definitely return for many visits to come.

Wundervolle Tage in Boston

  • 5 of 5
Die Greenturtle Pension in Boston ist ein wundervolles Hausboot mit 2 seperaten Wohnungen und Blick auf Downtown Boston. Karen und Jon sind hervorragende Gastgeber, die ein abwechslungsreiches Frühstück servieren und im Laufe des Tages die Wohnung wieder auf Vordermann bringen. Sie geben einem immer hilfreiche Tipps, wenn man welche will. Die Wohnung war genau wie besschrieben und sehr sauber. Es gibt mehrere Möglichkeiten um ins Zentrum von Boston zu gelangen. Entweder zu Fuß (ca 20 min), per Boot ($1,70) oder per kostenlosem Shuttlebus. Falls wir aus Deutschland wieder mal nach Boston kommen werden wir auf jeden Fall bei Karen und Jon wohnen und es auch jedem unserer Freunde empfehlen.
