Located less than an hour from Saratoga Springs, come paddle the pristine Battenkill. We rent canoes, kayaks, tubes, and rafts. Shuttle services are also available for those who have their own equipment.

Editor's Note (6/2/2020 8:00AM): After many conflicted discussions, BVO has decided to take the long, hard road of not opening for the 2020 season for rentals, shuttles or the Long Lodge. We pride ourselves in the quality of service, the amazing staff, the ambiance and expertise we offer. We choose not to put ourselves, our staff, or our customers at any type of risk. And this COVID-19 presents plenty of risk at this stage for how we transport people and all logistics involved.

Our retail will remain open and available - life jackets, paddles, and boats - call for appt at 518-796-9034.

Come experience the Battenkill!

The Battenkill is a perfect example of how picturesque Southern Vermont and Upstate New York is. Teeming with wildlife one often sees trout, deer, mink, songbirds, heron, eagles and osprey. We work with you to customize a journey down the river that best suits your requests. Reservations are strongly recommended to ensure that we will have what you're looking for when you arrive. Pack a picnic to enjoy on the side of the water and let us bring you upstream.

If you don't have your own craft, you can rent a kayak, canoe, raft or inflatable from us.  Everything that you will need is included- life jacket, paddle, and a ride to the desired put in (as well as back to our location). If you already own your own craft, we offer a shuttle service for a nominal fee. Lessons are available by reservation only.

We also have a large inventory of paddling gear, life jackets and fly fishing supplies. If we don't have something in stock, we can always place a special order.
