A pleasant surprise

4.6 on July 27, 2013

We went to Boston where we stayed on the yacht "out of the woods". It was just after the Fourth of July holiday and consequently very difficult to find accommodation so this would not have been our first thought but it turned out well. We were moored in a marina and we could sit on deck and watch the sun set behind the Boston sky line. All very romantic. The cabins were small as you might expect but the lounge was surprisingly roomy and of course we had the after deck with its table and chairs. The Marina Hi-Fi was variable but the Staff, who could not have been more pleasant and helpful, were only too happy to let us use their office facility when we needed to. I liked Boston. The city was the home of my favourite fictional detective, Spencer. I had made notes of all the bars mentioned in his books. Harvey, my son, and I set out to visit them. It’s an unusual but definitely to be recommended way of visiting a city. We got to see some definatly non-tourist areas and to meet some interesting Americans. They were interested to know we kept The Mayflower in Bristol harbour.

excellent experience in Boston Harbor

We visited Boston to watch Chicago Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup. Staying with Bed and Breakfast Afloat was perfect. We had a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom 60 foot sale boat floating in the Constitution Marina, just steps from the USS Constitution, the Garden, Boston's north end, etc. We were able to take the water taxi from the airport directly to the marina for $20/pp. We were able to take a different water taxi from the marina to the Aquarium and other Boston attractions. $3/pp. The marina is filled with beautiful private yachts and created a very cool atmosphere. The boat had 2 a/c units which were key in the 90 degree heat. It was clean and tidy and very comfortable. Highly recommend.

Wonderful stay!

Exceeded expectations. We stayed in the Rozinante for one night only, and it was charming, cozy, clean, facing the harbor (with a mini deck, no less), and equipped with cd/tv/dvd systems. A jacuzzi on a boat? Amazing! Loved the beautiful wooden interior. Pretty spacious for a boat. There was a bit of a walk from the boat itself to the cafe where they gave us a gift certificate for breakfast, but the cafe was tasty enough that it was worth it. Definitely recommend staying here.

Constitution Marina; Bed & Breakfast Afloat

CONSTITUTION MARINA Early Fall 2011 – Bed & Breakfast Afloat Experience My friend and I recently had the pleasure of visiting the city of Boston for a combination business/relaxation weekend away. During a prior visit, and while walking the docks at the marina, I recalled seeing these quaint floating houseboats that could be rented for over-night visits. I became very excited at the thought, and contacted the marina to schedule the visit. My friend and I had the opportunity to stay aboard two of the houseboats. Never having stayed overnight on the water, we had no idea what to expect. Our excitement was validated with every journey to and from our houseboat. We were pleased with all of the amenities which matched any top notch hotel room we’ve ever visited. We had a variety of weather, including thunderstorms, which brought more excitement to the experience. The very mild sea movement rocked us to sleep each night, and the secure environment allowed us to capture the rest we needed. It is obvious that this marina caters to their visitors and boaters by providing a comfortable, safe, and clean environment. You couldn’t ask for a better location to stay in the city, and how lucky to have the beautiful view of the harbor right outside your door. We’ll be back!! Laurie C

It was just what we needed, a nice comfortable relaxing environment. Our accommodation was very nice. Good size bathroom especially for a houseboat, comfortable bed, fridge, tv etc. Close to the tube station (green line). We were able to bar b que one evening which was great. The staff very knowledgeable about the area. Suggesting that we take the local transport ferry from USS Constitution to the other side where the aquarium is then its a short walk to Fanuiel Hall.
