LUXURIOUS HOUSEBOAT - TRAVELING THE ERIE CANAL & FINGER LAKES

Geneva Boat Rental Photos and Description

Boat, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This is a Luxurious Houseboat on the Erie Canal. The boat is 15' wide by 67' long. The interior has a full living room, full kitchen, 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, all heated and air conditioned.

There are decks at the stern and bow for cooking on the gas grill, sightseeing, lounging, and enjoying the wildlife. The boat includes an upper deck that is 15' wide by 50' long which includes a service bar, hot tub, and slide. This is an ideal location for sunbathing or relaxing.

A typical week’s adventure includes the following itinerary; On Monday at 8 am shopping for the week’s amenities, Pick up of the boat at 10 am at Stivers Seneca Marine, The move-in and a 6 hour orientation will begin immediately while someone is checking in, the voyage will begin heading toward Seneca Falls on the Erie Canal. Tuesday begins with a trip heading south down Cayuga Lake, you could also stop at Goose Watch Winery on the west side of Cayuga and end up in Ithaca for the night.

On Wednesday you will begin heading north on Cayuga Lake's east side and stay in Clyde for the night. On Thursday you will begin a canal trip to Fairport where you will dock for the night. Friday will bring the voyage from Fairport to Lyons. Saturday’s trip will entail a trip from Lyons back to Seneca Falls. Sunday's trip will be Seneca Falls back to Stivers Seneca Marine by noon.

The reasoning for this is because the boat traffic will be much greater after noon and will make it difficult for docking. Day trips are available outside of the itinerary. There will be a series of locks that will raise and lower your elevation throughout the trip giving you the experience of a lifetime.

This luxurious home could also remain tied at the dock and be your vacation home on the water. It would truly be on the water and you would not have any concern of navigating the waters and still engage in the experience of the Erie Canal and the Finger Lakes. You could slide from the hot tub on the top deck into our clean fresh waters for a refreshment from the sun.

In August 2013 my husband and I celebrated our 50th Anniversary with our family on this wonderful houseboat. It was a vacation that will long be remembered by all of us! We ate great meals at Parker's in Seneca Falls and stayed overnight there Monday and Friday nights. The week-ends in Seneca Falls are busier and not as quiet as the week nights. Lyons was a great town and we went to the interesting Peppermint Oil Museum at the suggestion of Lester, the town greeter. Since the Wayne County Fair was in Palmyra that week we were able to enjoy the fair and food. Newark was a great place to spend the night as we could hook up to 50 amp electric. We were very fortunate to have beautiful weather and spent Saturday on Seneca Lake and then Stiver's Marina for our final night. They have a restaurant, Tiki Bar and music on Saturday nights. The houseboat is very comfortable and spacious with having the upper deck. The mattresses are very nice and bathroom showers better than expected. Don't depend on Satellite and Wi-Fi on the water so plan to take advantage of the time spent together talking, laughing, and enjoying the blue herons, turtles, scenery, and the nice "greeters" that you meet in the towns. There were 6 adults and my 10 year old granddaughter. She didn't complain about not having technology that she has at home and learned about the locks that we went through, enjoyed the water slide, hot tub, and called ahead to the next lock master. One very important thing to remember is that there is always a possibility that something can go wrong with the boat.....just like a car. Don't be so strict with your itinerary that you can't deviate......."go with the flow" and enjoy each experience. Bob, the owner, is only a cell phone call away and can instruct you on any problem that would happen. I was so impressed with the communication with Bob, Donna, (his wife), and Eileen who worked with us months before the trip answering all of our questions. Eileen who works with renting the houseboat went "out of her way" to help us with the trip! These people truly care about their boat and making sure that you enjoy what they have enjoyed for many years. We even met Bob's mother the day we left the houseboat.......what a delightful lady! We actually met one of their daughters where we had a wine tasting at the Lake Street Filling Station cafe near the Ramada Geneva Lakefront where we stayed 2 nights before we got on the boat. What an incredible experience!
