I have rented the 14.5 foot sailboat on three occasions, most recently this past month. It is a terrific location for a day sail. We went out on a Saturday and it was not too crowded. The boat is comfortable and easy to use. The price was reasonable ($60 for 2 hrs). The staff were very helpful and friendly.

We rented our jet skis from the Narrows Marina. Price was comparable to other places that we have rented but the jet skis at The Narrows were much better. Newer and well maintained. Staff was very friendly and courteous. They even have dogs for you to pet if you are a dog lover and you need a "dog fix" while... More

We rented a Hurricane Deck Boat for the week of August 9 through 16. We contacted the company well in advance and they handled all of our questions (and we had a lot) and the details very well in a very friendly fashion. The boat was great!! We fished some days and did tubing and skiing on others. I look... More

We rented a powerful ski boat. Very friendly people. Very good instruction. Cooperative with specific needs. Boat in perfect condition. Not inexpensive but worth every dollar. Highly recommended

I am an experienced boater and know the ins & outs of boats / boating. I was very pleased with their service and equipment. My family had a great time and the pricing was reasonable. Make sure you reserve ahead of time to get the boat you want. Thanks

Ive been on Glen lake and boating for 23 years driving a boat requires much responsibility and inexperienced boaters often times don't know what they don't know and can be unaware and ignorant of managing driving watercraft the negative reviews likely cane from those types if individuals Keep in mind the spectrum of customers On the Narrows deals with My...

The negative reviews are all spot on. We rented a pontoon boat for a half a day. They tried to charge me for some alleged damage to the boat which was complete nonsense. I regularly visit the Homestead and will NEVER rent from here again. I also wanted to mention the rude teenagers running the place and their ridiculous add... More

Their rental offerings are top quality boats that are upgraded and replaced with new on a regular basis. It is the ONLY location on Glen Lake that you can have beverages... More
