This was such a great find for a beautiful day trip. We were staying in Marietta and hopped over to Wrightsville. The staff here were so helpful and informative.

What a gem! Great location on the Susquehanna, awesome proprietors and sales people and excellent pricing. Rented kayaks for a paddle with our grandkids and had a great time. If there was a B&B we'd be there more often.

A great business sitting on the banks of the Susquehanna River. Gear for all types of water sports along with guided tours and classes. They now have a restaurant to quell your hunger!
