As you have noticed, the waterfront is under water! The temporary Waterfront Office is located at the four way stop by the Homestead. The map will show it as the Harbor Store. Stop by if you wish to rent bikes or kayaks. Our excursion boat is being held hostage by the high water levels at Shelburne Shipyard so we apologize for the cancellation of the lake cruises. We can take you out on our Whaler if you are interested in seeing the lake at an all time high!
