“Great Location, Great Holiday”
Reviewed 1 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This is the second time I have stayed on the boat within a year as it is in a great place in Boston. Lewis Wharf is a 5-10 minute walk from Fanueil Hall, right in the North End and only 15-20 minute walk from Boston Common.

The owner Gretchen is extremely friendly and helpful. We had a minor issue with the toilet not working and Gretchen called us immediately so we could establish it was simply that the toilet had been switched off at the mains. Resolved immediately.

The boat is plenty big enough for 3 people and the main bedroom has an enormous bed, which is really comfortable. I know it says the boat sleeps 6 but this would be very cramped, I would only recommend 3/4 people staying.

The boat is in a beautiful location and we enjoyed breakfast on the deck every morning, and sometimes dinner and/or wine up there in the evenings too.

The kitchen is well equipped including coffee maker, stove kettle, toaster, pots & pans, microwave, stove and plenty of plates/cups/cutlery etc. The breakfast provided of bagels, yoghurts, cereal bars, cereal, milk, cream cheese etc is more than sufficient.

There was a slight downside to this stay (didn't happen last time) in that the boat two down is occupied/used by a couple of guys who clearly like to party. They were generally only playing loud music and having loud inappropriate conversations on their deck up until 8pm when they would then go out on the boat, but it was very distracting. The worst part though is when they came back - usually between 1-3am with other people they had picked up - they would take 20-30 mins leaving the boat and were not quiet about it. This happened every night of our 5 night stay and woke us (and other boats) up every night. This is something out of the control of the very lovely owners, and I hope we just were there during a bad week, as this was a frustration during our stay.

I will, and have recommended this B&B to others as the location and price are fantastic for the area. Only other thing to recommend is the local Grey Goose market which is 5 mins from the boat. Amazing food at great prices including hot food that you can take back to eat on the boat.......
