It was such a beautiful setting and experience. I went with my five-year-old daughter and she loved the goats and chickens and seeing the little crabs on the little shore. She also loved the swing chairs and we definitely want to come back
Wonderful way to be with the nature
What a magical immersion in nature while sleeping in a comfy bed. The battery candles are so wonderful, the big big windows allow the breeze and the sounds of nature to relax and put you to sleep. I wish I stayed longer.
It was so wonderful to access to the kayaks to go out on the water and enjoy the smooth quiet sound.
Perfect anniversary getaway!
We absolutely loved our stay! Such a tranquil, no-fuss experience. We especially enjoyed spending our evenings on the hammock chairs, and greeting the goats in the morning. We spent a lot of time by and on the water with the provided kayaks and paddle boards and made the very short trip into town for dinner one evening. This truly was one of our favorite “camping” trips yet and we will be back!
We had a wonderful two-night stay at the boathouse. Chris and Channing went above and beyond to ensure that all of our needs were met. The location had everything - a comfy bed, battery-operated lights, a woodburning stove with firewood, a compost toilet with a sink (no running water, but the jug of water over the sink worked great), firepit, tree swing, board games, and, of course, the friendly chickens and goats! My kids even got to collect eggs and take the goats for a walk. We loved exploring the historic downtown and enjoyed our morning coffee and donuts at Corner Bakery. (Unfortunately, the Ker Place museum was closed on the days we were there and Da Vinci's Italian Kitchen permanently closed on April 2, 2022.) We hope to be back someday!
Having fire wood, kayaks and even eggs offered free of charge puts Channing and Chris above and beyond!! Such a beautiful and peaceful getaway! Even the chickens were nice... talk about hospitality! If you're in the area, stop by! You will not be disappointed!!!
Boathouse is a well tought, cozy, romantic little hideout.
The hosts are lovely couple that would go the distance to make you feel home.
We had a great day&night enjoying the pier, campfire and the sunset.
Def recommend Boathouse to both experienced and first time campers !
