Money well spent floating down the Vermont river, Battenkill, in a kayak or lazy tube allowing Big Big
on the Battenkill to do all the work so you just float and relax.

This year I am networking with Peek Pro reservation service. It still allows you the choice of cash or charge but it confirms your reservation and gives you a confirmation with all the instructions you need to plan your trip. You do not need to wait to hear back from me. You can still call with any questions you may have and I will be happy to answer for you but please go through the app. BUT  for large groups or having issues with the app always just call or text  me and I will get you on the river!    Cell phone 518-479-9042. Booking the day of again is critical to use the app and will get you on the river as I can't answer the phone. I can try to respond to texts. 


Tuesday is my summer Sabbath, day of rest and communion with my family and God. 

Please do not let weather reports steer you away! I usually wait till the morning of as the reports don't match reality the majority of the time. I do not hold any money if you do not make the trip. I always have and always will refund due to weather issues. 

  There is NO BUSINESS SIGN 


But I have a cross at the entrance when you arrive and follow the drive to the next cross and down the mowed path where we will be waiting to show you parking and get you on the river! 


                       DO NOT GET OUT AT THE BARN AND DO NOT STOP AT THE BARN!                       



A traditional summer pastime in Arlington,Vermont involves packing a lunch, some drinks, deciding if it will be in a  tube or raft and float down the Battenkill River. The Green Mountain water is cold but refreshing especially on a hot summer day. 


PARENTS we have clips to attach your children to your tube or raft if you need; for all others we have as well but limited and when water level is low we will instruct the number allowed to attach otherwise if tube is popped you pay. 


YOU NEED TO VISIT THE "What You Need to Know" tab of this site and the "Waiver" tab. I am on the road a lot or busy taking calls so this site tells you every thing I would tell you on the phone. This saves me a lot of time explaining and saves my voice ;)  


Bring trash bags for your garbage as it is carry in carry out no trash cans.  NO BATHROOMS EITHER.
