We enjoyed a brief but wonderful stay at the Golden Slipper. Gretchen met me at the wharf and was kind enough to help me get to the houseboat, as I had recently had ankle surgery. She is a gracious host, and interesting to talk to.
The boat itself is clean and stocked with everything you could want. The location is fantastic, within walking distance of many restaurants and shops. My husband and daughters walked to the TD Garden without a problem. The North End is my favorite part of Boston, so this accommodation couldn't have been in a better spot. While not quiet at night because of the usual city hubbub, once inside the boat to sleep, the noise was muted, even with windows open.
I can't recommend Gretchen or the Golden Slipper highly enough. Oh, be sure to visit the Golden Goose Market, located just across the street and through the alley! I don't even know how to begin to describe it, but it has a European vibe and offers anything you could possibly need for your stay--food of all kinds, alcohol and other beverages, toiletries, and everything in between.
My wife and I had a wonderful time on The Golden Slipper. The boat is well maintained and the location can't be beat. Staying on a boat was a unique option and I highly recommend it!
Thank you Gretchen! You are a wonderful host.
The Golden Slipper was a golden experience. Close to everything, water taxis at the dock whenever you need them and a host extraordinaire. Gretchen gave us the skinny on living on the boat and made us feel right at home. The locale is perfect for seeing anything in town or in the water. Magical!
Stayed on the Golden Slipper for a long weekend in Boston and it was excellent. The location could not be better for seeing the sights. One can easily walk to lots of restaurants, the Freedom Trail, and the downtown area. The train is close by for anything further. Gretchen gave us a great tour of the boat and pointed out the nearby sights before leaving us to tour Boston. We all slept amazingly well on the boat and just enjoyed the quiet, relaxing environment whenever we needed a break from sightseeing. Definitely recommended!
The boat is docked in the most perfect location in Boston imaginable. The boat is clean, comfortable, and Gretchen is a wonderful host that made the check in, check out, and boat orientation process seamlessly pleasant. Breakfast was included and contained fruits, bagels, cereal, juice, and many other things that worked both as a breakfast and as snacks.
My three friends and I had a wonderful time. Great location, all the amenities you need, and the host was gracious. Spending a quiet evening at the marina, relaxing on the back of the boat is the perfect way to unwind after a long day of sightseeing. Would stay again.
The Golden Slipper was great-- accurately described and in a fabulous location. We felt comfortable and very secure.
We had a great stay on the boat! Perfect location for a downtown stay and great back deck for wine and boat watching.
Gretchen was great. She accommodated our early arrival, was very clear on operations of the boat and a pleasure to deal with. The beds are super comfy, and the fireplace was perfect for the couple of cool evenings we had. Our daughter having her own room and bathroom was a bonus and she loved it!
A few minor downsides - wifi would be a must for us in the future, as well as basic t.v. We would have loved to use the stern sitting area more, both for shade and during a bit of rain, however there was no option to put up canvas for that.
We had a truly great stay and recommend this experience!
The Golden Slipper is an extraordinary experience with local access to many spots around the Boston area. I would highly recommend a stay at the Golden Slipper to anyone looking to break away from the monotony of hotel rooms.
Gretchen was a great host as well which made the experience complete!
Gretchen is a true pleasure to deal with. Do not hesitate to stay aboard the Golden Slipper!
