Why BVO?

With over 20 years prior experience working as wholesale canoe and kayak reps, helping establish the paddle sport industry, we decided to bring our expertise to a where we live.
  • Offering rentals of canoes, kayaks, rafts, and tubes
  • Sales of canoe & kayak gear for the outdoors, river T's, and much more
  • Area hiking options
  • Vacation getaway lodging through Air bnb
Tucked against the hills, adjacent to a State hiking trail, our off-grid business offers outdoor experiences to folks of all levels, and advice for regional adventures.

Our philosophy is to provide knowledgeable, respectful services. The Battenkill is a beautiful, natural wild resource, and we do not approach it as an amusement ride. BVO offers secure parking, change rooms, flush bathrooms, and spacious grounds to picnic on, if desired. We draw clientele from all over the world and hope to be the ones to offer you a memorable experience. Connecting friends and family.... Come discover with us!

Plus, we have a terrific staff! They make all the difference

BVO supports a staff of ambitious college students and professional adults experienced in their field. From physics and aerodynamics, to Adirondack guide services, your choice to come to BVO is a choice to experience these great minds, great service, and support these futures! It does make a difference.
