We rented a houseboat from Antler's in September of 2013, after Labor Day so we could avoid the crazy summer boating season. Check in time was at 4:00, but we arrived early, around two and asked them about early check-in. They told us they would call when it was ready, so we went down the road to have lunch while we waited. Just as we were finishing lunch at about 3:00, they called and said it was ready. When we arrived, a young man brought up a small barge with a tractor, helped us load our stuff, drove it down and launched it right next our boat so we could easily pack our boat with the "way too much stuff" that we brought. We stopped at other Marina's to fuel up, but as far as I know Antler's is the only one that assists in loading and unloading boats. At other places we saw people loading their own boat one wheelbarrow at a time up the steep bank. As we were packing on, Antler's staff was busy giving our designated captain and first mate the orientation of the boat. They then let us go on our way, letting us know if there was anything we needed to just call them. The boat we rented was the Orion, their largest houseboat. It was beautiful! Everything on the boat was well maintained and well supplied. We had a fabulous, unforgettable week. Upon our return, Antler's staff, the same person that had given the orientation...wish I could remember his name, met us out in the harbor to be able to take the boat into the marina...for a boat that big it's tough to maneuver into those close spaces. We had cleaned well, so we were able to immediately pack our stuff off the boat (again with help) and quickly be on our way. We will be back!
