So I turned 70 in May and thought it was certainly time to take up another sport. Logical, eh? Well, my wife and I have been kayaking a few times and enjoyed it and we loved the experience of renting from Brent, Natasha (both former students and really great folks) and the crew at Canoe and Kayak Rentals and Sales. So now we're kayak owners and the experience of working with Brent and the staff has been. wonderful. Good kayaks are not cheap, but when you're out on the water in a region of unpredictable weather, you don't want cheap; you want good and they only carry good boats, and sell them at very reasonable prices. Moreover, we found that their service, attitude and knowledge were superlative. I am really happy we stuck with our practice of buying local whenever we can and I know if there are any problems I can get help right down the road. If you're in the market to rent or own, this is the place. Happy paddling. Oh yeah, they have canoes and SUPs, too.

Amazing staff
Jun 2019 • Solo
I am afraid of anything outdoorsy. The staff was so helpful and patient with me as I asked about flying snakes, bears, mosquitoes, flying fish, getting lost, all sorts of anxiety filled questions. They helped me ease through my anxiety without making me feel embarrassed and I was able to try something I've always wanted to try, but was afraid of. I had an amazing time, the scenery was great. I can't thank the staff enough.

afternoon paddle
Jul 2019
Travelling on business but had an afternoon free, staying in Oneonta. Called to see if we could rent. They got us in the water exactly one hour before closing and we had a nice paddle in three kayaks. My colleagues had never kayaked, so they got a little instruction.
The guys were very accommodating and the price was great.

Friendly, Professional and Love what they do
Sep 2017 • Couples
We stopped early before they were even open, but they very nicely answered all our questions and we told them we would be back later.

When we came back - rental was quick and they explained all our options, asked us questions then suggested which route they thought would be best for us - and it was.

When we returned, they answered more questions and did not rush us

Looking forward to going back next year

A great place to start
Aug 2016 • Solo
If you are thinking of paddling the Susquehanna head waters, start here. Brent and crew are friendly and very knowledgeable of the local waters and area. Price are reasonable and they will make sure you get what you need. If you are to paddle the Susquehanna, start at Compton Bridge. The river around Cooperstown is littered with deadfalls and very to navigate,

Great Convenience to the River
Jun 2016 • Family
4 of us, ages from 11 to 61 rented Kayaks for the 1/2 day and had a blast. Excellent equipment, training, and staff. Location is perfect for beginners to non-beginners alike. Reasonably priced.

See the scenery from the Susquahanna River
Jun 2016 • Couples
Last year we went kayaking; this year we canoed. We personally like canoeing better, but this friendly business caters to all three: canoeing, kyacking, or SUP.
SUP? Huh? Stand Up Paddle boards. No, we didn't try those. This was my 70th birthday, after all, so the paddle boards just didn't appeal to us. But they are a lot of fun to watch. How young is too young? I'm sure that depends a lot on the child - and the business supplies lifejackets.
I found this a delightful location to take photos. I took several of ducks, a blue heron, and A Beaver! The photo my husband likes best is actually of the stairs from one of the camps down to the shore of Goodyear Lake. If you go to paddle here, see if you can decide which camp that might be. Hint: I don't like stairs and there are way too many.

Great Day on the Susquehanna River
May 2016 • Family
I took my niece out in a tandem kayak. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. For less than $40 you get a kayak, paddles and life jackets for up to 4 hours. We opted to head left on the Susquehanna and enjoyed beautiful views and wildlife. If you go the other direction you end up in a lake. Highly recommend.

Great Value & Great People!
Dec 2013 • Friends
A friend and I visited the Cooperstown area in August 2013 (the earliest option I could list below was Dec 2013, but we were there in Aug 2013). We had a great time attending the Ommengang Beer Festival, seeing the Baseball Hall of Fame, and visiting several breweries and wineries in the area. We camped at Glimmerglss State Park, and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. We had planned to rent a boat and do a little fishing on Lake Otswego. But as we were visiting one of our favorite places there, the Wellington Market, the owners told us about a friend he went to high school with who ran a canoe and kayak rental place down in Portlandville. It was associated with a smaller lake, so we decided to check it out. We could not have been happier with our decision! They were great people to deal with, very friendly; had a great conversation with the owner! They also sell new and used kayaks, canoes, and other equipment. They are a small business giving great, friendly service, and I highly reccommend them if you are in the area!
