What a great experience this was. The entire organization all seem on the same page. The tour of Racquette Lake was a history lesson in itself. I was a bit concerned that four hours on a boat would be a bit constrained but the time flew by. We had cocktails and a cheese board on the upper deck. Both were excellent. The prime rib and salmon served down in the main cabin were superb and the service was noteworthy for its attentiveness. Restaurant owners these days lament the difficulty in finding competent, reliable help but the Pohl family has obviously solved that problem. This too. No paper plates here. No plastic either. There’s linen on the table. I can’t say enough about how impressed I was. My three guests were all food industry veterans of many years. They notice the little things right away and were amazed how how coordinated and professional the staff were. It’s a four course meal and they did not miss a beat. If you’re in the Adirondacks and looking for a unique way to see a beautiful lake then get on this boat. It’s just a flat out great time.

Even tho the weather was damp we had a wonderful time traveling to Camp Pine Knot above this comfortable ferry. A little bit of history was included by the captain and the meal was exceptional. Everyone was terrific answering questions and just making our little journey comfortable.
