My wife really wanted to stay here during our trip to Boston, but it was booked. We checked again while staying in boston and the last two nights of our trip it was available. We both loved staying here. It was the perfect ending to our trip to boston. Thank you.
The Golden Slipper B&B was the highlight of our trip visiting the east coast. It was an adventure in itself. Five of us fit and slept comfortably in it. We loved spending the evenings on the deck talking over our day, or watching the sun come up. The location could not have been better, we never used the car once. We walked to the Aquarium, Boston Harbor cruise, Faneuil Hall, Science museum, restaurants, and Golden Goose grocery store. We could go back to the boat and take a break/rest between sightseeing stops, and it was always such a comforting feeling to go back to the boat instead of a hotel room. Gretchen was great, helping me with directions and answering questions. She instructed my husband on how to get from the airport to the boat via water taxi, he was dropped off right on the Golden Slipper's dock! There is no question on where I would stay if visiting Boston again, I just would stay longer...maybe until the ice starts forming. Pat P, Madison WI
The Green Turtle House Boat was a unique experience. I would recommend this B&B for anyone looking for a new vacation spot. The suites had everything you could need. Karen and Jon were kind and informative. Breakfast was delicious. My husband was speechless when we pulled onto the dock and I told him this is where we were staying. Having been to Boston many times, it was so refreshing to stay at Green Turtle. It was a memorable stay and highly recommend to others.
My stay at Proctor Mansion Inn was one night during a trip up the New England area where I stayed at 3 different B&Bs. This one had the friendliest Inn keeper, who gave my wife and I a full tour and history of the house which was quite interesting, especially with the underground railroad history. I was a bit disappointed in the breakfast, but in hindsight of the other B&B's I stayed at, it was not bad. I would've liked something a bit more unique, but it was not bad and quite well presented and delivered. I'd stay here again.
We stayed in Port. Only one night but I wish we'd had more. Relaxing quiet marina with easy walking access to all the big attractions in Boston and Charlestown. The best part is feeling completely at ease with the rush of city it just around the corner if you wish to partake.
This is our fourth year at the Green Turtle. We LOVE this B&B.....peace....tranquility......our special place on the water. Karen and John are the best innkeepers ever. We will continue to return again and again ¿¿¿¿¿¿
This bed and breakfast is amazing! The hosts, location and setting make this the perfect place to stay. We will stay here again and have recommended it to everyone we know traveling to Boston. The Green Turtle is a gem!
My husband and I had a splendid 2 days celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary aboard New Beginnings. What a wonderful way to view the city across the water each morning....being a part of the marina community is so much more enjoyable than an anonymous hotel. EVERYTHING is either in walking distance, easy T travel, or cab. We parked our car and left it (safely) in the adjacent parking area until it was time to leave. Staff are very helpful and having a private "deck" is a real treat. Thank-you! (just remember to use "Charlestown" in your GPS address to get to the correct Constitution Road!) Barbara
I was lucky to find the College Club of Boston, my friend recommended it. I was studying for the bar and he rates in Boston at the time were outrageous. The College Club was affordable and had everything I needed. It was really neat it reminded me of places I stayed in Europe. Breakfast is encluded and it is just right. The location is amazing and checking inwas a breeze. And so tastefully decorated, not modern looking very historic. Love it!
Awesome stay! Best Bed and Breakfast ever. Owners treated us like family! Great location and view! Will definitely re visit already told all my friends and they want to come .....will need a bigger boat.
We enjoyed our short vacation in Boston, but the highlight was the experience of living on a 45 ft. yacht. Great way to end an evening out was having a glass of wine on the deck, enjoying the breeze and watching a variety of boats go by. Karen & Jon were gracious hosts and we appreciated their directing us to the best places to go and how to get there. Having breakfast on the deck was also a treat. They even arranged a water taxi to take us to the airport which made our leaving another fun experience. Thank you!!
This was an ok place for my wife and I. Pros: Good location, comfortable bed, decent breakfast Cons: Shared bathroom is one per floor, not as much privacy as I'm used to (our room had double doors to the parlor where the Inn worker sat for a good portion of the evening) Parking: While I'm glad for the $2 parking fee their parking is very tight and somewhat difficult to use - and was full - there was significant rearranging when a late arrival who had paid for parking came). I would stay here again (great value) - the pros out weigh the cons. Just make sure you realize there is rather tight parking (can't change their location) and shared bath means one per floor and you'll do fine.
The rooms were so gorgeous, beautifully decorated & the bed was so comfy. Great location away from the hustle & bustle of downtown Boston but still a close enough walk. Breakfast was amazing and Karen & Jon were so friendly & knowledgeable of the area. We will be coming back.
We stayed at the Breakfast afloat in July. We arrived early, but were quickly accommodated. The boat was ready and they let us check in right away. We stayed on the Port. It was perfect. The fridge was stocked with water and there was coffee and real cream. The room is small, but large enough to relax. There is a TV, wifi and enough space for clothes. The accommodation also included free parking (during the week) and a $15.00 food coupon for a delicious café. The location is absolutely perfect. A short walk under the bridge and across the bridge and you are close to North Boston. We also bought the on/off trolley ticket which was less than 5min walk away. It allowed us to get into Boston and see all the sights easily. There is also a pool and nice sitting area which we enjoyed on hot days. Overall, we absolutely loved where we were staying and highly recommend it to anyone.
My team and I were visiting a client in Boston and could not find any hotel rooms. So we took over the Hawthorne Inn! It was the best decision ever. Each room was beautifully decorated; the beds are so comfortable; and the hosts extremely pleasant. We used the common rooms quite a bit so we could prepare for our meeting - it was comfortable like being in our own home.
The Green Turtle offers a phenomenal and unique location in the historic Naval Yard near the USS Constitution. The hosts treat you like family, excel at helping you choose excursions, and the boats are not only centrally located but immaculate and relaxing to stay. The Green Turtle is a gem that we HIGHLY recommend to anyone.
We had a lovely, long weekend stay at the Bed and Bagel. Everyone was so nice, especially Raney the housekeeper. Location was convenient for traveling to the city and to Fenway Park. The little village of Brookline was adorable.
We had the pleasure of staying only one night but wished we had longer. We were in the smallest of the three rooms but it was still a pleasure to stay here. Bill was an absolute delight and couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The breakfast was lovely as were the snacks and drinks supplied. The neighbourhood is really interesting and we loved exploring it. All in all an absolute gem of a B and B. Reviewed by two Aussies a long way from home.
We had a great stay at the Beacon Inn on our trip to Boston. The two gentlemen at the desk were delightful the entire stay. The rooms were clean and very quaint. It is a great alternative to your normal chain hotel. I will definitely be back.
This was a perfect venue for a summer outing for our Employee Engagement Team, two of which enjoyed the overnight accommodations. What a unique and wonderful experience, everyone was raving about the event, and we all want to go back again. Karen and Jon were a pleasure to work with, thank you!!
There's not much else to say, the rooms are amazing--clean and comfortable--and the place is in an excellent location. You can walk to all kinds of shops, restaurants, and destinations, and it's just a block and a half to transit. Highly recommend!
Lovely quarters in a charming inn which has a wonderful location in Concord, Mass. You can walk to restaurants and historical sights such as the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery and the tavern where Minutemen gathered on April 18, 1775. Rooms were immaculate and I highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast!
Situata lungo la costa atlantica, alla confluenza tra due fiumi, edificata su di un gruppo di penisole collegate tra loro da ponti e gallerie, Boston è una delle città più estese, antiche e pittoresche degli Stati Uniti. Per la sua vastità e ricchezza di luoghi da scoprire, una decina di giorni in un Bed&Breakfast di Boston è il minimo indispensabile anche per assuefarsi al ritmo di una grande città americana.
Capitale del Massachusetts, le sue origini risalgono alle colonie inglesi, e oggi è una delle metropoli più vivaci e brillanti, intellettualmente e socialmente. Con la presenza del mare e le sue ampie aree verdi, è una città piacevole e rilassante da vivere, nonostante il caos tipico della grande metropoli, ricca di architettura antica e moderna, e particolarmente adatta per chi predilige muoversi a piedi.
La bellezza di Boston si rivela soprattutto in primavera, quando il Public Garden e il Boston Common, il parco più vecchio degli Stati Uniti, tornano a fiorire e ad accogliere i visitatori in cerca di uno spazio verde dove passeggiare liberamente. Dal Boston Common parte anche il Freedom Rail, un percorso di cinque chilometri lungo il quale si congiungono i luoghi più significativi della città, tra cui la State House, in stile neoclassico, dove ha sede il governo del Massachusetts, la Old State House, l’edificio più antico di Boston, la Old North Church settecentesca, e il Bunker Hill Monument, l’obelisco in ricordo della battaglia del 1775. Per gli appassionati dell’arte, Boston è sede del Museum of Fine Arts e dell’Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Nella baia, le Boston Harbour Islands, un parco nazionale diviso in 34 isolette, offrono la meta ideale per una gita appena fuori città.
Nel corso di tutto l’anno, a Boston non mancano mai gli eventi di grande importanza. Come la celebre maratona di New York, anche a Maratona di Boston è una delle maggiori nel mondo, e si svolge proprio nel Giorno dei Patrioti, in aprile, che celebra la battaglia del 1775. In Marzo, San Patrizio regala giorni e notti di follia, e in settembre il Boston Arts Festival trasforma il Waterfront Park in un grande mercato dell’arte.
Nella gastronomia locale, primeggia l’aragosta, il simbolo di Boston. La città, a dispetto di quel che si dica della cucina americana, vanta comunque una tradizione enogastronomica di grande rilievo, che include e rielabora i piatti della cucina internazionale, dall’estremo Oriente alla Francia.
L’inverno a Boston è piuttosto freddo, e il periodo migliore per visitarla parte dalla primavera inoltrata fino all’autunno, poiché in estate, sebbene sia spesso molto calda, la presenza del mare rende gradevole la temperatura.
