Fantastic Location!

4.0 on July 30, 2014

My Father-in-Law has a very short "bucket list" - and one of the items on his list was to see a Red Sox game at Fenway Park. We decided to make it a full family trip to Boston to see the sights and enjoy the city. We discovered the Golden Slipper while searching for places to stay and, since my In-Laws have a boat and enjoy the water, we thought it would be a fun and unique way to stay in Boston. We could not have asked for a better location! The Golden Slipper is right in the heart of the North End and just a short walk away from the aquarium, restaurants, and stop one of the trolly tour we booked. We could hop on the tour and travel all around the city! Sitting out on the deck in the evening time, we enjoyed how peaceful it was. Although we were just steps away from the busy city, it felt like we were apart from the hustle and bustle. The rocking motion of the boat was an incredibly relaxing way to fall asleep at night. Gretchen was welcoming when we arrived and we appreciated her guidance and suggestions for places to go and stock up. The Golden Slipper is definitely a unique find. There are some quirks to staying on a boat - and so long as folks come in with eyes wide open, this is a great way to stay in Boston! The trip was a success, my Father-in-Law has fulfilled one of his lifelong wishes, and it was made even better because we all really enjoyed our time on The Golden Slipper!

Ideal Getaway on Boston's Waterfront

4.4 on June 01, 2010

On boat at Lewis Wharf, private and secure, convenient to aquarium, historic downtown and North End restaurants, the "T" and water taxi. Boat clean, stocked and very comfortable. Will return.

Perfect Getaway!

Having stayed on the Golden Slipper 4 times(it might even be 5)I felt it was time to write a review letting everyone know how much fun it is to stay right in the heart of Boston on a boat. The boat is spacious and so comfortable. The marina is totally safe .I have stayed with friends as well as family. It is perfect for a "girlfriends get away" My son who travels all the time in his job and gets so tired of staying at hotels loves staying on the boat. He has stayed on the boat twice. I will be there again in May and I can't wait..Diane R.

Fantastic Place!

This was new for us, staying on the water, in a boat, no less. However, we were quickly won over, by the charm and care of this lovely yacht. The innkeepers, Gretchen and Jack, were warm and helpful, with tips for navigating Historical Boston. I will be a return customer for years to come. Thanks! Joan

Great Overnight Get Away

No Better escape than the Golden Slipper for an evening away from home and the kids. Make us feel young again when we're onboard our favorite personal B & B afloat. Looking forward to our next visit.
