"MY 5TH TRIP WAS THE LUNCH CRUISE LAST Tuesday...the food was you have a cookbook ????? Best Apple Crisp I have ever had. The dressing on the Caprese' salad was perfect. I would love to have these recipes. The creamed pearl onions were wonderful ! We love the cruise and recommend to anyone we know travelling to the mountains. Thank you very much !"

– Debra N.

"We had a fabulous cruise/dining experience once again aboard the W.W. Durant on Raquette Lake! Many thanks to the Pohl Family for your wonderful hospitality and the best meal ever. We know you don't control the weather, but Saturday evening was absolutely perfect!"

– Susan G. 

"Fantastic! We took an intimate dining cruise for our one year anniversary. Weather was perfect, the dinner was excellent, and the full moon topped the night off perfectly. Highly recommended!"

– Dick M. 

"We had a wonderful time on the Luncheon cruise. The food was delicious and you could even go back to the buffet for seconds. The Captain gave an interesting narration of Raquette Lake before and after our lunch while we were on the upper deck enjoying a drink. This is very nice way to see all of Raquette Lake and the small ship and staff made our cruise very enjoyable!"

– Judith L.
