·          The Boathouse- take a romantic walk down to the beach, and find a spot on the dock in front of the boathouse to watch the sunset or listen to the loons by the tranquility of Boshkung Lake. There is a games room where guests are welcome to play a game of pool or ping-pong, or sign-out a board game (eg. Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, etc.)  If you require paddles for the canoes please see the owner.

      **FYI- For your safety; There is a private workshop in right half of the boathouse that we use for fixing boats, and for general repairs that is private, and is a restricted area to guests due to the various tools, nails, and lawn care equipment that are kept there. There is a sign that shows this designated area as restricted and private. **
