Boston bed and breakfast description

If you are looking for an absolutely unique and romantic B&B experience to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, engagement, or wedding, the Golden Slipper awaits! It is an ideal romantic getaway for two, but also a fun adventure for four. Two private staterooms are offered with plenty of privacy for both couples, and room to relax on the yachts front and aft decks.

The Golden Slipper, Boston’s B&B “Afloat” is a traditional Catalina Chris Craft. The 40’ Yacht is located at Lewis Wharf, in the heart of historical Boston. The boat stays moored at the slip and you come and go as you please. This is a private party yacht accommodating up to six guests, with a continental breakfast left for you. Cruises of Boston Harbor and dinners are available upon request, during your stay.

The Golden Slipper offers the unique experience of having a Bed and Breakfast, with the opportunity to cruise Boston Harbor, for a day or sunset cruise. You return to your slip, the innkeepers leave, and you continue to enjoy your yacht for the rest of your visit.

In addition to the two private staterooms, the main salon accommodates 2 more people on a double berth sofa. This layout is perfect for a family vacation, reunion, or “girls' getaway”. The business traveler can enjoy a unique, comfortable setting, as well, and entertain clients with a sunset dinner cruise.

Guest comments from all over the world describe the Golden Slipper as a very positive experience, and a unique getaway in a very urban setting. Our guests love our fabulous location, within walking distance to many historic attractions. Escape to the boat for peaceful moments of relaxation on the aft deck, enjoying excellent views of the busy Boston Harbor. In the evening be rocked to sleep with a gentle motion, and wake up to coffee and muffins on the deck, greeting a new day in historical Boston Harbor.

We look forward to welcoming you on board!!
