Do not rent a bike here!! Don't!! The bikes have bald tires, tires with slow leaks and my wife paid extra for gears that did not work. Comical part was that bike seat kept sliding doen( no matter how tight you tightened it)-- but in an area where there are some very fast cyclists, pedestrians and darting runners-- these bikes...

Don't rent bikes from Loeb Boathouse. They were supposed to open at 10 AM. People waiting. Called them. Person on other end said "sorry about that" when clearly she was not. Someone showed up 15 minutes later. Finally got on bikes at 10:30. Bikes are junk. Hardly any rear brakes. 3 of my 6 gears didn't work. Thankfully we are... More

One of the most fun experiences that my wife and I have ever had. We picked a beautiful October day, and were fortunate enough to walk right in to the row boat area, and get in a boat. It wasn't crowded at all, and was so fun to watch her as I rowed the boat out into the pond (lagoon?... More

Looked like a long line, but moved pretty quick. Must pay cash MIN 35.00 per boat. No one really knows how to row, so lost of collisions. Fun afternoon, Be prepared to ROW

We hired 5 bikes from the rental area next to the boathouse thinking that this company would be more responsible. The bikes that we were supplied with were not 'fit for purpose' - the brakes on two were very poor and the chains fell off two, one being jammed by the cog fly wheel which meant that our whole group...

We should have made a reservation. We really should have. We know better. We got there at 1 pm, and were told to wait for one hour. After being told 5 more mins quite a few times, and almost 2 hours later, we got our table. The view is awesome, and the location clearly the best part of the restaurant.... More

On a sunny spring or summer day, Loeb Boathouse rents boats for $15 an hour (cash only) providing a blissful break with an enchanting background. There is normally a short wait during tourist season, but it's worth it!
