The Casita

3.6 on July 11, 2017

my husband and I stayed on the Casita for two nights during our 9 day vacation through New England. Originally I only booked one night over the 4th of July but we both loved the small boat house and stayed an extra night. We were able to see part of the fireworks display for the 4th. The Casita is the perfect little boat house and we both wished we could have stayed for the first 3 nights of our trip as well! The breakfast is actually a voucher for a small cafe right outside the harbor. It's more than enough to cover coffee and a pastry or sandwich. There's also access to a small pool and laundry facilities included with the stay but we did not utilize either. Overall we would definitely stay with Bed and Breakfast Afloat when we visit New England again. ¿¿


Fantastic B&B!!!!!!

For my girlfriends birthday we booked the vessel called Inn The Moment. Not only was it very spacious and clean, we had an awesome view of the city! The staff was very friendly and helpful the whole time. This was the first time I have ever stayed on a boat/yacht and it won't be the last!! Thank you Constitution Marina!!


Unique BnB experience near the sights of Boston and Charlestown

4.8 on August 13, 2016

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.


Awesome way to be close to the water in Boston!

4.6 on August 01, 2016

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


A hidden jewel

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.


Excellent Stay

We had an excellent time while staying in the "Inn at the Moment". Location, value, and service were great, highly recommended.


Great Time on "Casita"

For a unique experience, staying on "Casita" in Boston Harbor was wonderful. The bed was comfortable and there was a full bath. And very clean!


Fun place to stay

Everything about the Marina was great. I did not use or see any onsite dining, so I do not have much of an opinion on that. I would definitely stay again.


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

5 on June 25, 2013

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.
