Perfect for our visit

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the Blue Pearl. It was just as described and so much fun to return to the upper deck for drinks at the end of the day. We will certainly return and can hopefully stay longer next time.

Fun Stay for a Family!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stayed for two nights. I wish it could've been longer. The kids loved the houseboat. It was very clean and fun. We were told to bring a flashlight if arriving at night, and you definitely need it, as the marina gets quite dark. We received a list of instructions before we arrived, so we were completely prepared. I would recommend a stay for a family. The houseboat is small, but quaint. Deb is a wonderful hostess.

Quiet, nice hang out spot

  • 5 of 5

Very easy to get in and out of. First time staying on a houseboat and our group had a blast! Deb was easy to communicate with and very helpful. Airport noise was not really noticeable at all. Most of the time you forgot you were even staying on the water! Highly recommend!

Great property, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying on the houseboat. Instructions and info received from Deb were spot on.

Our teenagers thought the loft area was fab.

Convenient for the T.

Nice restaurants nearby.

And the best bit.... drinks and nibbles on the upper deck after a busy day sightseeing!

LOVED this place

  • 5 of 5

What a great trip we had. I took my kids (11 and 8) on a last minute trip to Boston and we all loved staying here.

There was plenty of space, great to have a full kitchen, the neighbors were awesome. We really had a great time.

The best way to begin a journey through New England

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit as a family to New England. It as exciting to start our trip off by staying on a houseboat. This was a good location to explore Boston from. We were close to the airport but the planes were not a noise problem for us. We were a walk away from the bus stop that connects you easily with the metro. Plenty of good places to get to easily.
