The Boat House has been the Capital Region's leading store
for canoes, kayaks and rowing shells for decades. To accompany our boats, we
have a large selection of paddles, life jackets, roof racks, books, videos, and
other related materials. We also do canoe and kayak repair and customizing. As
an Old Town dealer, we have access to all of the Old Town parts for wooden
canoes as well as current models. As a dealer for West Systems, we stock West
System's Epoxy and use it in our own repairs. Call for store
We are conveniently located on the Mohawk River, allowing you to try out our boats on the water. Just off Balltown Road (NY Route 146) and a short four miles north from Route 7, we are an easy reach from Amsterdam, Albany, Saratoga, Schenectady, Troy, and even Hudson. Please call us for hours since they change seasonally. We are closed on Sundays.
Kayak and canoe rentals are available from May to October. You can enjoy our location on the Mohawk River or cartop
to your favorite quiet waters. Two basic rentals can be applied to a boat
purchase. Call us for rental
rates at 518-393-5711.
