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 made us feel very welcome, provided a great overview of the Golden Slipper and some suggestions for places to visit. A very smooth experience. Would definitely recommend.
We loved our night on the Golden Slipper. We will never stay anywhere else when we come to Boston. You have to be prepared for the parking, which can be a challenge, but the boat itself is an awesome place to stay, Gretchen and her husband are very helpful and we really enjoyed our stay. The location is convenient, in the North End, very near Italian neighborhood and lots of great restaurants. We ordered takeout and had a family picnic on the deck There were 5 of us, and the only thing I would do differently is to limit the family to one small bag each.
Thank you for the lovely space Gretchen and Jack! Best way to stay in Boston hands down.
Gretchen was available, flexible and accommodating as a host. The Golden Slipper was just lovely--everything we might have wanted, we had. The boat was clean and comfortable and very well maintained. We enjoyed our evening there and would certainly recommend it.
I would say this is the only way to stay in Boston, the boat is moored in a perfect postion so you are able to walk to so many interesting sights and places. Gretchen was the perfect host, leaving breakfast things for us so we didn't even have to go out early on the first morning, it was such a lovely touch. Have already recommended friend to stay there.

This houseboat stay was an amazing one. After the initial "getting-used-to-boat-living" period, the cabin rooms were really comfy and the deck view was very relaxing - it was real common to see (but not hear) planes taking off from Logan International Airport and see birds right outside the boat! Water taxi goes right to where the boat is - great stuff. Location is awesome - right smack in the North End and easily accessible to the rest of Boston via the trolley tours (get the one with a 2-day pass and goes to over 20 stops!).
Gretchen was a very great host who did her best to accommodate to our every need - many thanks! My parents (57 and 55) and I had a great time staying here. Joe's and Legal Seafood Restaurant (2 top-notch restaurants) were nearby too, and made for really good food.
The boat itself does not have WiFi though - for your (website hidden) and Internet needs, you can head over to the Starbucks cafe nearby!
Gretchen is a true pleasure to deal with. Do not hesitate to stay aboard the Golden Slipper!
