My husband and I just returned from our holiday. we spent 3 nights on the green turtle. I can't express how great Jon and Karen are. I told my son that if I needed a kidney I think Jon and Karen would have done anything to find one for me. The location was great , 5 min on the T and we were in downtown Boston. I loved the uniqueness of the green turtle and the whole environment of the marina. The breakfasts arrived right on time and they were a wonderful way to start the day. The morning of our departure we were leaving quite early and we told them not to worry about breakfast but oh no, they would have none of that. Karen and Jon insisted on delivering our breakfast early and taking our bags and luggage out to our car. We loved watching the planes arrive and depart from the airport. I would highly recommend the Green Turtle. If you ever have the chance to stay there, take Jon and Karen's advice and let them make reservations for you at Rosetti's.

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.
