About the Property
Boat, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
There are decks at the stern and bow for cooking on the gas grill, sightseeing, lounging, and enjoying the wildlife. The boat includes an upper deck that is 15' wide by 50' long which includes a service bar, hot tub, and slide. This is an ideal location for sunbathing or relaxing.
A typical week’s adventure includes the following itinerary; On Monday at 8 am shopping for the week’s amenities, Pick up of the boat at 10 am at Stivers Seneca Marine, The move-in and a 6 hour orientation will begin immediately while someone is checking in, the voyage will begin heading toward Seneca Falls on the Erie Canal. Tuesday begins with a trip heading through the canal to Lyons.
On Wednesday you will begin heading west and stay in Palmyra for the night. On Thursday you will begin a canal trip to Fairport where you will dock for the night. Friday will bring the voyage from Fairport to Newark. Saturday’s trip will entail a trip from Newark back to Seneca Falls. Sunday's trip will be Seneca Falls back to Stivers Seneca Marine by noon.
The reasoning for this is because the boat traffic will be much greater after noon and will make it difficult for docking. Day trips are available outside of the itinerary. There will be a series of locks that will raise and lower your elevation throughout the trip giving you the experience of a lifetime.
This luxurious home could also remain tied at the dock and be your vacation home on the water. It would truly be on the water and you would not have any concern of navigating the waters and still engage in the experience of the Erie Canal and the Finger Lakes. You could slide from the hot tub on the top deck into our clean fresh waters for a refreshment from the sun.
