BVO chose NOT to open for the 2020 season- sadly
However we WILL reopen for the 2021 season with limitations
We will be emphasizing our vacation getaways - we will have 2 in place this summer, as we transition what is now the shop, to a getaway. All BVO shop and check-in will then happen in the barn.
Our river trips will be limited to 1 van, 8 ppl to a van.
We intend to run 2 trips a day. Van leaves at 9:30, and again at approx 12:00
We will be open Fri-Mon 9:00-5:00
All trips will be booked in advance, prepaid, pre-waivered- ready to go! We are in the process of upgrading this website to simplify the pre-booking process.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate walk-in business.
Masks will be required in the van
While we set up the new website- please feel free to call and leave a message. All callers will be honored in the order they were received. A credit card will solidify the booking.
We try to treat each trip on the Battenkill as more than an amusement park ride or drinking party. The Battenkill is a beautiful, natural resource, and last year saw it's share of overuse and abuse.
BVO draws amazing clientele from all over the region and globe- we hope to be the ones to offer you an amazing experience.
Stay safe- Be well
Lisa & Don
