The Golden Slipper Bed & Breakfast
I just wanted to tell you how VERY MUCH we enjoyed our stay on the Golden
Slipper! Everything was perfect! The guys loved mornings on the upper deck
while Jill and I were getting ready for our day. It was within walking
distance of almost everything we wanted to see. The beds were very
comfortable and the breakfast coffee cake was excellent! We could not have
had a better time and we are telling all of our friends that when they go
to Boston they have to stay on the Golden Slipper! And I am sure we will
be back. Our son lives in Springfield and his girlfriend lives in Boston,
so when we come to visit we usually visit Boston - it's such an amazing
city. And now that we have such an awesome place to stay, it will be even
Thanks so much!

"My Mom & I enjoyed our stay here very much. It was a beautiful
experience. It's very cozy and comfortable. I love the decorations of the
vintage decor. Thank-you very much, Josephine" (May 2013)
enjoyed our weekend on the "Slipper". It was a great home base for
graduation, and we all felt the brief"life on the sea" was relaxing and
enjoyable. The Burnetts" (May 2013)

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)
