Golden Slipper Bed & Breakfast
"A great experience for sailors and landlubbers alike!"
We spent four nights aboard the Golden Slipper and couldn't have been more
pleased with our choice. Gretchen is a top notch hostess and was wonderful
in explaining the nuances of living on a boat to us and our two young
The Golden Slipper is clean, comfortable, and convenient to all things
Boston. Many historical attractions, restaurants, and public
transportation are within a five minute walk. Grocery and laundry services
are nearby as well. For those chosing just to relax, the rear deck is an
excellent, quiet location for watching people, the harbor and the airport
departures and landings.
Returning to the Slipper's quiet berth at the end of a busy day touring
was like coming home. The beds are extremely comfortable and, along with
the gentle harbor action, gave us our best sleep in recent memory. The
folks on the nearby boats were extremely friendly and made us feel like
neighbors, not just tourists.
For those wishing to immerse themselves in "living" the great city of
Boston, the Golden Slipper will not dissapoint. Countless kudos to
Gretchen and the Golden Slipper!

Getaway on Boston's Waterfront... 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." (6/1/2010 review posted on bedandbreakfast.com)
""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 (Dec. 2009)
