We had the pleasure of cruising a few days ago with Michele. We had a wonderful time! Michele was an excellent captain, host, and provided some excellent knowledge about Cooperstown. I would highly recommend this cruise ! It was a treat.

Aww!! Thank you!! It is our goal to provide a "treat" for our guests and we are so glad we accomplished this for you. Everyday we spend out on our gorgeous lake is a treat for us too...enhanced by the gift of the wonderful folks we meet along the way. Thank you for making us part of your trip!

I ended up booking a last minute Foliage Cruise for me and my Husband. Unbeknownst to us, it turned out to be a private cruise as no one else had booked. How lucky that Michelle still took us out! I cannot rave enough about the entire experience. Michelle, was nothing short of fantastic. The food was VERY gourmet and more than generous on the portion size. Make sure you order a bottle of wine ahead of time if you'd like wine with dinner, the wine list is highly desirable! My husband and I are talkers, so we conversed the entire trip with Michelle, however, she was more than happy to let you take in the quiet and serene lake if you wanted. I would highly recommend people make this part of their trip to Cooperstown. It was one of the highlights without a doubt!
Note: When you arrive at the park, go down the local dock towards the end, that's usually where the boat can be found.

Thank Sarah C

Sarah...what an absolute pleasure!! This is our first year in business and we make every effort to accommodate ALL reservations...even just for two. :)) Initially because we wanted to advertise ourselves, but we soon realized that the personal reward we derive from the small group experience is huge! It really gives us an opportunity to talk to, learn about and befriend our guests. While we always want to ensure your privacy and alone time, we DO love learning about you and making connections! You and "S" were so much fun to have on board. You went to exceptional lengths to provide your husband with a special birthday trip...and I think you succeeded!!
Thank you for commenting on the food and wine list. For next year we plan to post our wine and craft beer menu on our website making it effortless for our guests to let us know in advance their preferences and we will work closely with or catering partner (Mel's at 22) to provide the list of all menu ingredients and their local sources.
Your final statement about the dock is very helpful as finding us can be a challenge. Signage is not allowed at the village docks so currently we come to the shore looking for you! Next year we will carry a sign with us when we go ashore to help guests find their way. We want it to be a seamless and stress-free experience and we are grateful for direction and ideas that move us in that direction. Thank you so much for your review. I LOVED meeting you two!!

We were two families traveling together, and this seemed like a nice alternative to the Glimmerglass Queen. The boat was clean and comfortable, and Michele had the table beautifully set for us. She shared her knowledge of the lake and it's history, we spotted a bald eagle in the trees, and it was pleasant for both the kids and the adults in our group. Look forward to doing this again!

You were the sweetest families! It was a pleasure having you all on that gorgeous Sunday morning. It was fun to realize we had several local connections in common from when you lived here years ago!
I want to thank you for taking the time to post a review...It really helps us as a young company to get the word out. We hope to see you again!

A lovely cruise with my husband's office staff. What a great time we had. The boat is practically silent as it is electric and solar powered. The views were amazing. The weather couldn't have been any better.

Captain Michele and First mate Will did an incredible job making everyone feel welcome. The food was delicious and beautifully served. The beer and wine were excellent. I particularly loved the Chardonnay.

It was a wonderful evening cruising on the lake. The sunset was beautiful.

I would highly recommend this cruise.

We LOVED cruising with you and your husband's office staff!! I can only imagine how enjoyable their work environment is based on the camaraderie exhibited by everyone during our outing in August. Can't thank you enough for providing us the opportunity to host your company picnic this year...it was an honor and privilege!!
