Comfortable House Boat with Boston Skyline Views

  • 5 of 5

We were headed to Boston to see The Blue Man Group and wanted to stay for the weekend. We always take our dog with us and this time I thought we would try something different than the hotel we normally stay at. I am so glad we did! The Blue Pearl was wonderful, the views amazing (especially the Boston skyline at night). The house boat was perfect for us, the bed VERY comfortable, and the interior clean and nicely decorated. Remember you are on a boat, so there is movement, for us this meant a great nights sleep. If you do get motion sickness, take the over the counter medicine or wear the bands, it is worth it! The plane noise did bother us at all, nor did it bother our dog. The town of Winthrop was a pleasant surprise! What a great town for walking around! We enjoyed walking through town and going to the local park. We devoured our lobster rolls from Bell Isle Seafood on the deck of The Blue Pearl watching the planes, (we indulged for both our lunches… Yummy!) Our first night we had dinner at Osaka Lucky Garden, delicious Chinese and sushi! We went to dinner in Boston, Maggiano's Little Italy (Delish!) the next night. It is a short cab ride into the city, so you do not miss anything by staying here. Viking cab service was great, prompt, on time, and very friendly drivers! We had brunch at the Winthrop Arms Hotel and Restaurant, very tasty! We were sad to have our weekend end as we met so many nice people on the dock and heard about so many nice restaurants to check out right in Winthrop. Our time was too short!! We can't wait to go back!!

Diamond in the suburbs

  • 5 of 5

Boston Marathon was our reason for the trip and we were extremely pleased with our selection of the Blue Pearl Houseboat. Located a ten minute walk from the Blue Line T train, we had access to all of Boston. The house boat was spotless and appeared to be very new. Master bedroom had a terrific bed, décor was nautical and in great taste. Houseboat had a two burner stove allowing us to cook breakfast each day and a good sized refrigerator to store food for the athlete running in the marathon. Kitchen was well supplied for cooking. Large variety of coffees made the Keurig Coffee maker a great amenity. Deb is very accommodating and I hope others will want to experience her houseboat. The only thing we wished we would have access too were bicycles. We did not have a car so we walked everywhere, bicycles would have been great to tool around on in Winthrop or to ride to the train station.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Blue Pearl! We spent New Years there and it was an awesome time. Definitely will be back in summer . Boston is also amazing and it was a 5 min ride to downtown. As cold as it was outside the inside was great with heat and all the things we needed. Deborah was great as well.

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I had a great Christmas getaway with my family at Blue Pearl boathouse this year.

Before arrival, I was a bit worried if the boathouse would be too cold considering the house is on the water but I was pleasantly surprised that it was really warm and cozy.

The house was very clean and well decorated. We really enjoyed fully stocked kitchen as well. The house smelled great and the master bedroom had great bedding linens and comfortable pillows. The attic was so much fun. Deb also quickly responded to any questions I had.

We enjoyed the house and cant wait to go back next year.

Thanks,Deb!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

4 of us stayed for two nights. Had a great time. Deborah was great to work with and answered all my questions. Boathouse was clean and comfortable. Coffee maker was great. Didn't mind the planes, they were great too watch. We used the sofa bed as the loft was a bit tight, but would be great for kids. Would stay again, no problem. Boston is lots of fun.

Perfect getaway

  • 4 of 5

The house boat was beautiful and clean. The Kurig was nice added touch. Love that there was a grill. We went fishing then grilled our fish for dinner. There were plenty of amentities such as spices for cooking, little bottles of shampoo and conditioner and motion sickness medications just to name a few. Aiport noise is a bit noisy sometimes but manangeable. The neighbors were very nice. Really like the upper deck, we watched the sunset everynight from the deck. Would definately recommed this property for friends. Thank you Deb for a wonderful stay in Boston.
