“Quick trip to rural Montgomery County”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

If in Leesburg it is the fastest way to reach NW Montgomery County but also a good place to grab a canoe on a warm day and paddle around for a picnic. Try it out next Spring.

“A family treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Not too many of these are around now. It's a real treat to cross the river over the ferry! This place holds so many sentimental memories for me. My prom date had our driver go this route to dinner. And when I was a kid it was cheap entertainment or a large family with a tight budget.

“Great way to get across the river”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

It's a great "short cut" across the river. The staff can be a bit gruff, but this is the way we cross the river, when it's not too far out of the way. Our kids love it. It's only a few minutes across. If you just miss the ferry, it'll be back in less than like 10 minutes, just enough time to go into the little store and grab a soda / cup of coffee.
It's best from March to November when the foliage is at it's best, but even in the dead of winter, it offers a neat, albiet brief water experience.

“A great way to cross the river”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Great way to get into Maryland for a ride to Sugarloaf. The short ride is always fun if your a fan of water. Great place to rent a boat and do a little fishing, we always catch fish there.
