We had one night on the boat at Lewis Wharf and have to say it was the highlight of our trip. The location was outstanding and very central to all transport hubs, Freedom Trial and the famous North End. The communication and instructions where very clear and we just loved our stay. We highly recommend a night on the Golden Slipper.

What an amazing experience, I will never go to a hotel in Boston again. Close to everything and Gretchen is extremely responsive and was able to accommodate a late arrival. BTW....she is awesome. Be sure to talk to her for a second, she is a woman you would want to have a drink or two with.

We had such a great time on The Golden Slipper. A wonderful central location, but secluded from the hustle and bustle of the city. We felt very safe and well taken care of during our stay. Gretchen is a great host, ensuring our stay was comfortable with many extra amenities. Fantastic accommodations for a unique Boston adventure!!

Fabulous host and wonderful accommodations! As someone who lived aboard a boat for several years on Boston Harbor I can assure you that The Golden Slipper will exceed your expectations. This vessel is spotless in terms of cleanliness, and offers the perfect balance of space and comfort. Terrific sleeping accommodations- the bed was AMAZING and I slept like a baby! Desirable size living room area with open galley concept, even plenty of coffee, tea and breakfast options. Relax inside, plenty of books and movies, or enjoy sunning on the bow or sitting on the upper deck. Close to everything you would want to have nearby while enjoying Boston whether you decide to walk, rent a bicycle, or take the water taxi, standard cab, or the T. Gretchen was flawless in her hosting. She ensured that I had everything I needed and was stellar in her communication- especially when I experienced some flight delays that changed my check-in time. Enjoy The Golden Slipper!

This is a great place to stay! Very comfortable and relaxing and very reasonably priced. Gretchen was a very nice host. It's located within walking distance of so much! And the subway is not hard to get to if you want to go further. We walked to TD Garden then took the subway back. It stops right near the aquarium which is very close to the wharf. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck of the boat and got to see other boats coming and going. We would highly recommend staying here.

If you have a small group who wants to explore the popular Boston spots, the Golden Slipper's location and value can't be beat! A cheap water taxi takes you directly from the airport to the boat, you're on a private dock behind a locked gate, and only a block or two from the Freedom Trail, T train, wharfs for cruises and tours, Aquarium, and Quincy Market. Gretchen is a very active host in contacting you and helping with questions and concerns. I wouldn't hesitate to book again.
