"Thanks everyone for the wonderful time. We were looking for an inexpensive vacation
and we found one! The children were just as happy hanging out here fishing and
exploring as they would have been at an amusement park. We will be back!"
On-Site Activities ::
Whether you are an avid fisherman and like a challenge, or you just want to share an
experience with your child, the Connecticut River will satisfy both these needs. Fish
from our dock and your child will most likely catch a sun fish. The excitement and look
of achievement on their face will forever be branded in your memory and theirs. Rent our
fishing launch for a one-two person fishing excursion and feel the excitement as the
smallmouth bass fight you all the way. Donít let the name fool you. These fish can be
ferocious and way between 2-4 lbs. Larger parties our 12 passenger pontoon boat is
available to rent. Fishing equipment is available free of charge to our guests. New
Hampshire fishing licenses are available to purchase at the front desk.
Go on a Guided Fishing Excursion: For only $534.20 (tax included based on 2 people)
experience a guided fishing float trip on the Beautiful Connecticut River, complete with
a fantastic streamside lunch. All equipment with flies or lures is included. You will fish
from a brand new McKenzie Drift Boat - Safe & Comfortable with padded seating and back
support. Also included are two nights lodging with breakfast at the Chieftain Inn.
Reservations for this package can be arranged through our website (please note that you
are interested in going on a fishing tour in the special needs section) or by calling
(603) 643-2550. The tour will be provided by: www.riverexcitement.com.
As a guest of the Inn you are entitled to rent one of our boats and enjoy the calm clean waters
of the Connecticut River. Nestled between the banks of New Hampshire and the hills of Vermont,
this magnificent river is the perfect place for fishing, water sports, or just cruising the
picturesque shore-line. Long stretches of the river have no structures on them at all, just
natural beauty as it might have been 100 years ago. Possible sightings during your river trip
may include bald eagles, hawks, ospreys, ducks and much more. Shore side plants offer spots of
color, and in the fall, the foliage alone is worth the trip. Stop off at one of the many islands,
have lunch and explore!
