Green Turtle Floating Bed and Breakfast

c/o Shipyard Quarters Marina 13th St., Boston, MA 02129 USA (Show map)

About

The Green Turtle is a floating bed and breakfast as luxurious as it is unique set in historic Boston Harbor. It offers an expansive view of the Boston skyline and comfort and amenities of a modern bed and breakfast. It is easy to get around by foot, ferry or bus. Our houseboat and yachts were designed for comfort above all and the only reminder you are floating in Boston Harbor is the sound of the gulls, slight motion of the sea and the reflection of the ocean dancing on the ceiling. It is delightful starting your day sipping coffee or enjoying a cold beverage after a day of sightseeing sitting on your aft deck or dock watching the harbor traffic and city skyline. The Green Turtle offers 3 boat choices. The Green Turtle I is a houseboat that has two private suites(Loggerhead and Sea Turtle). Each has a kitchenette and en-suite bathroom/shower and dock chairs. Each sleeps 2 or rent both for 4 people. Green Turtle II is a 45ft. motor yacht and sleeps 2-6. She has 2 private queen staterooms , a full sleeper sofa , a galley, dinette a great aft deck with comfortable furniture. Green Turtle III is a 43ft. motor yacht which sleeps 4 in 2 queen staterooms, a salon, galley, dinette and aft deck with comfortable furniture. Your suite/yacht is stocked with gourmet coffee, tea, juice, water, granola, yogurt and snacks. We deliver fresh breakfast each morning to your door. All boats are docked in protected marina slips permanently moored during your stay.

Super B & B - great location

We are boaters so the floating accommodations appealed to us. Good location with public transportation to get you anywhere in the area. Hosts Karen & Jon are charming and so helpful. This will always be our hotel choice in Boston,

Great place to Stay

4.2 on June 26, 2017

The Green Turtle was excellent. clean, big, room with a/C and big bathroom, especially for a room on a barge. Karen and John are excellent hosts and are on site most of the time. Breakfast was served hot and delicious. No restaurant on site, but plenty nearby. We were able to bring my boat up and they put us right next to our room and friends on their motor yacht. Great location easy access to north end and waterfront with plenty of water taxis available. Marina is like new with great docks, walkways and plenty of lights. We had a great time with our friends.

My family and I stayed at the Green Turtle II Bed and Breakfast on June 9th & 10th, 2017. The boat had plenty of space to accommodate the 5 of us with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We loved the cleanliness of the yacht, as well as the cool, evening breeze at night. We were provided snacks, drinks as well as breakfast each morning of our stay. The A/C worked very well, which was very important because the days were quite warm while we were in Boston. We happened to stay on the yacht during the Fire Moon and the view was mesmerizing! Jon and Karen were very friendly and helpful. John provided us with very helpful information in regards to the sights to be seen, as well as providing helpful information regarding getting around town. We enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend the Green Turtle Bed and Breakfast. We hope to return very soon! Thank you Jon and Karen! Sincerely, Steven and Norma Lemmer


Green Turtle II

A fun place to stay in Boston! Beautiful view. Beds were so comfortable. We all slept wonderfully. Jon and Karen are outstanding hosts. Friendly and knowledgeable. We ate at Pier 6 and the food was excellent. Our 11 year old granddaughter absolutely loved staying on a yacht and Karen's delicious breakfasts. We hope to come back to Boston and would definitely stay here again.


Absolutely AMAZING!!

Awesome Experience

Wonderful, unique experience on this floating Bed and Breakfast in Boston Harbour. The hosts, Jon and Karen, were exceptional, from Jon meeting us at the pier, and taking our luggage to Karen'[s delicious breakfasts served to our door every morning. They were very helpful in suggesting restaurants and other Boston attractions. Would go back in a second!

A week in the Sea Turtle

We vacationed in Boston for a week. Thanks to Karen and John we ate at some wonderful restaurants, had no problem using the public transportation...they made our stay outstanding. The breakfasts were fantastic. They left us snacks, water and drinks every day. Plus the setting was calm and relaxing. We loved our stay.


Unique Accommodations on the water!

This is a very nice alternative to a traditional hotel room. We arrived and was promptly greeted by the owner Jon. He loaded our bags and took us to our floating room. Room was clean and well decorated. Jon made recommendations on places to eat and things to see and do in the area. It was lunch time when we arrived and they provide a variety of small snacks and drinks in your room. They were a life saver!! Jon also graciously gave us a tour of one of the boats you can rent. The room was nice and quiet. Breakfast is delivered to your room in the morning and it was amazing. Fresh homemade breakfast sandwiches, fried potatoes and fresh fruit. Wow!! I plan to stay here if I ever return to Boston. I highly recommend Green Turtle.
