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.

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. Click here for rental
