The Green Turtle is a bed-and-breakfast in Boston Harbor. Yup: in Boston Harbor. It's a floating hotel, basically, with two tiny suites, the Sea Turtle and the Loggerhead. They start at $225 a night during the fall and winter.

Floating suites? Igloos? Are these options a little too far-out for your brief foray into the Hub? Then check out a more traditional studio offering in the South End. It comes fully furnished, according to the VRBO ad, "with with the best, most comfortable and most fashionable, yet classic, furniture we could find from Crate and Barrel, Boston Interiors and Pottery Barn." Not that you can put a price tag on such attention to detail, but the 500-square-foot studio, which sleeps three, starts at $199 a night.

The North End's legendary Skinny House will have you, starting at $250 a night, according to the VRBO ad. Live as the spiteful lived in the late 19th century in this townhouse that's 10.4 feet at its widest point.
