The Boathouse

History enjoyed...

Built in the early 1940's by a wealthy businessman, the boathouse was designed to shelter the Phoebe II, a 70 ' wooden hulled  steamboat.  The boat slip is now closer to 50 feet, still able to accommodate a couple small craft at a time.  The boathouse was once used to store Lady Eaton's canoes after which it was purchased and used for vehicle repair and storage.  Much time and money was invested into securing the underpinnings of the boathouse now providing a secure foundation.  This boathouse has been fondly called a houseboat as unlike most boathouses designed today, is built on water with only the northwest corner on shore. Guests can enjoy the coffee area and relax in one of the comfortably worn leather couches.  Just west of the boathouse is a sheltered basin,  where guests can dock canoes and kayaks.  Motor boats can be launched just down the road, sheltered in the boathouse and trailers stored on site.
