First, great location, easy to get to, easy walk to Charlestown sights, easy ferry ride to historic Boston. Jon and Karen are excellent innkeepers, helpful, and serve a delicious breakfast. Very pleasant accommodations, and did I mention it's quiet.

This was our first visit to the Green Turtle B&B. It was everything we had hoped for and more. Beautiful spot to relax on the dock, walk along the wharf, quick trip to Boston by bus or ferry to local shops, restaurants and TD Garden. John and Karen were extremely informative regarding transportation and restaurants. Green Turtle B&B will be...

This has got to be our most favorite B&B experience to date and we have stayed in quite a few. However, this was by far the most enjoyable. We stayed on the Green Turtle 2, which is one of the yachts. The accommodations were very good and the breakfasts were very filling. The location was great and just a short...

We stayed in the Green Turtle I. I had my niece with me. The owners were amazing, great tips on restaurant choices, getting around town, and always nearby to answer questions. John helped up take our things up and down the dock. We had summer storms at night and really enjoyed the lightening! The kitchenette was useful and had everything...

First, I'm not one to write reviews. However, the owners of Greeen Turtle certainly deserve recognition for their superior hospitality and meticulously maintained houseboat and yachts. My wife and I recently stayed onboard the house boat. The room is well furnished with basic dishes, glasses, microwave, and small refrigerator and stocked with complimentary refreshments and snacks. We were served a...

What an awesome place to stay! We just visited for the second time. We stayed on the 43 foot cabin cruiser...roomy and comfortable! All the amenities you would get in the best hotel...only quiet, secure, and with a fabulous view. We sat up top on the fly bridge at night to enjoy a beautiful view of the city lights. A...

Stayed on the Green Turtle II to celebrate my husband's 50 birthday. This large, older cabin cruiser is meticulously kept and spotlessly clean. What luxury to have it all to ourselves! The boat has both heat and air-conditioning, but we didn't need either, as the many windows let the fresh breeze keep the boat cool on a hot day. There...

We loved it! Three gal pals on an annual reunion! Great spacious boat, well stocked with goodies, an aft deck where we spent hours just enjoying being outdoors (drinking wine, talking), on the water with the beautiful Boston skyline for scenery and interesting boat traffic in the harbor. Restaurants close by. Easy fun ferry ride to Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall and...

We like to find quirky places to stay to get away from the usual hotel style accommodation and the Green Turtle 3 was just right! Four of us spent 3 terrific days there under the care of Jon and Karen who are outstanding hosts. Breakfasts served were delicious and the boat was clean - we couldn't wait to return each...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Green Turtle is a floating bed and breakfast as luxurious as it is unique. Set in the historic Charlestown Navy Yard on Boston Harbor, the Green Turtle offers an expansive view of the Boston skyline along with the comfort and amenities of a modern bed and breakfast. The USS Constitution (Old Ironsides), the Bunker Hill Monument and the Freedom Trail are a short walk away. You can take the water ferry to numerous points along the waterfront. There are dining choices from bagels to world famous dining. The Green Turtle 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, 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 while sitting on your dock chairs or aft deck watching the harbor traffic and city skyline. The Green Turtle Floating Bed and Breakfast offers 3 boat choices. The Green Turtle I is a houseboat offering two private and separate suites and each has 1 queen sized bed with luxury linens. Each suite(Loggerhead and Sea Turtle) has a kitchenette and a private bathroom en suite. Each suite sleeps 2 or reserve both suites for 4 people. Green Turtle II is a 45 foot motor yacht which sleeps 2 - 6 people. She has 2 private queen staterooms with bathroom and shower in each stateroom, a full sleeper sofa in the living area, a galley and dinette and a great aft deck with comfortable outdoor furniture. Green Turtle III is a 43 foot motor yacht which sleeps 2-4 in 2 queen staterooms with bathroom and shower in each, a salon (living area) galley and dinette and an aft deck with comfortable outdoor furniture. Your suite/yacht is stocked with gourmet coffee, teas, juice yogurt, granola, spring water and snacks. We deliver fresh breakfast each morning. Staying aboard the Green Turtle Floating Bed and Breakfast is a unique way to visit Boston. All boats are docked in marina slips and are moored permanently during your stay. We live right here on our sailboat. Come Float With Us! ... more   less
