A must-do for water lovers! Gorgeous sunset views. We watched the big boats come through the raised bridge. Perfect location for a Boston visit. Directions were crystal clear... the houseboat was super easy to find. The kids went bananas for the loft space. Truly a great family memory.
What a unique way to experience Boston. Cozy and comfortable in spite of the wind and rain outside, my visit to my sister was made especially memorable by our stay in this well-appointed houseboat. Because of the loft area, we were able to invite her grandchildren to join us for one of the nights. Great kitchen and exceptional shower. (You can't fall - the walls are too close to your body. The houseboat was close to places we wanted to visit and convenient to excellent restaurants. We'll never forget this Thanksgiving.
Very cute and enjoyed drinking coffee on the deck and wine on the upper deck! Clean and stocked with all supplies. Very pleasant weekend. My only compliant was the airplanes going over head which didn't bother me but did bother my guest. Many fun memories. Thank you
Awesome, Quiet. Restful. Clean. Unique like nothing else. Unusual. Beautiful. Though we travel frequently and far, this experience was our best surprise ever. Deb was quick to answer any questions and she was helpful throughout. It was obvious she enjoys her guests. It was but a few minutes from downtown Boston on the metro, but once we arrived at the boat, the noise of Boston seemed a million miles away. We look forward to returning, and if you are considering renting, do it. You will be very, very glad you did.
This wonderful houseboat was a terrific place to hang our hats at the end of a day of enjoying Boston. Right from the start Deb was amazing. She is so easy to talk to and makes sure that everything is great for your stay. This is definitely the place to stay if you are visiting. Ample parking (free), wifi, coffee. Having our morning coffee on the decks watching the sun come up was a plus but having a glass of wine and experiencing the sunsets through the bridge was spectacular. We got to witness the bridge coming up and letting three boats through which we enjoyed. We drove ourselves into downtown for the day and found parking, but we hear the T was close by. All in all we had a terrific time and would highly recommend staying on the houseboat. Thank you Deb for another amazing trip to Boston.
We loved the Blue Pearl, and it made our time in Boston really special. Loved watching the bridge in operation. Great having free parking, and the location worked well when we needed to drive. But also had easy access to public transportation. Owner responded very quickly to the couple minor questions we had while staying on the houseboat.
