“Fun for one night”

We had fun staying overnight on the Golden Slipper, and the children really enjoyed the adventure. The location in central Boston is ideal and we were gently rocked to sleep at night. It was easily accessed by water taxi, straight from the airport.
I would advertise the place as a 2-bedroom boat, not a 3-bedroom, although the sofa can convert into a double bed in the living area.

The decor is a bit dated, but obviously this is a much loved boat. There were lots of knick knacks around so sometimes it was hard to know where to put our own stuff.
The fridge and some of the utensils were sticky, probably because we arrived earlier than expected, so there was no time for the cleaning to be finished.
The kitchen area and the entrance carpet had a strong smell, maybe due to damp.
The bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable, and we slept extremely well. However I was wondering about the need for such a huge bed (king size + ?) in such a tiny room. There was barely enough space to walk around it.

One should be informed too about boat toilets. All discarded paper has to be placed in a bin, and not down the loo, which is not to everyone's taste. There are 2 shower rooms, which is nice, but this is a boat, so it felt rather cramped in there.

So, overall a positive experience at it was fun for the kids and the location is perfect, but we couldn't have stayed there for more than a couple of days. We are tall people, so it felt a bit cramped.
Definitely not recommended for people who are squeamish (toilets) or who like open, contemporary spaces.

We spent four nights aboard the Golden Slipper and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. Gretchen is a top notch hostess and was wonderful in explaining the nuances of living on a boat to us and our two young children.

The Golden Slipper is clean, comfortable, and convenient to all things Boston. Many historical attractions, restaurants, and public transportation are within a five minute walk. Grocery and laundry services are nearby as well. For those chosing just to relax, the rear deck is an excellent, quiet location for watching people, the harbor and the airport departures and landings.

Returning to the Slipper's quiet berth at the end of a busy day touring was like coming home. The beds are extremely comfortable and, along with the gentle harbor action, gave us our best sleep in recent memory. The folks on the nearby boats were extremely friendly and made us feel like neighbors, not just tourists.

For those wishing to immerse themselves in "living" the great city of Boston, the Golden Slipper will not dissapoint. Countless kudos to Gretchen and the Golden Slipper!
