"Such a unique, relaxing spot! Melissa and AJ made checking in super easy and explained everything. Before booking the place I read all of the glowing reviews, and not one was an exaggeration... also, there are ducks and food for the ducks... that may not seem important now, but when you get to hand feed crackers to the ducks with your morning coffee... you’ll understand! Will definitely be back. Thanks again!"



"If you are thinking about booking a stay on the Wincoma, stop thinking and book It now ! There are not enough good things to say about our experience. Melissa & AJ are gracious and warm and welcoming hosts who have everything covered. They know all about the local spots and are super friendly and responsive if you need anything at all. The boat itself is clean, spacious and has just all the right touches to make It feel like home during your stay. The views are breathtaking and the ducks make It hard to stay away. Would definitely recommend these hosts & the Wincoma for your next get away. You will not be disappointed!"



"Melissa and A.J.’s place is a gem!! We would have extended our stay if it wasn’t already booked. Beautiful views, great communication and hospitality and a unique experience. Hurry up and book before someone else does!"



"Loved the Wincoma. Melissa greeted us and showed us around the boat. She also gave us great suggestions for dinner and things to do in the area. The boat: the deck is the perfect place to hang out during the day. Have a drink. Play some music. Get some sun. Inside the boat there is a little kitchen. A clean bathroom. A mini fridge stocked with water. There is a little dining area with two booths and a smart TV. The bedroom is tucked away towards the front of the boat. The bed was super comfortable. We made Bloody Mary's the next morning and played chess on the deck. Note: watch out for the neighborhood hooligans: an endlessly hungry and chatty gang of cute little ducks that you can feed crackers to all day. The more you drink the more fun this becomes. Also, if we had stayed longer we would have rented kayaks to explore the creek and would also have done the evening sunset charter. This is a fun experience that is a nice break from the usual Airbnb stay. Highly recommended. Thanks Melissa and A.J.!"



"Melissa and A.J. were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. They decorated the boat with fun birthday decorations to help celebrate my husband’s big day. They gave us great recommendations on where to eat and what to do. If we had any questions or needs, they were immediately accommodating. You want to feed the ducks? Here are some crackers! You want to go fishing? Here’s a fishing pole! You want to go on a last minute boat ride? Let’s go! The boat itself is clean and surprisingly comfortable to hang out on and sleep on. The views from the dock are beautiful and provide relaxation. Definitely go on a ride with them! They are excellent company and the views are totally worth it. It was a really unique and special weekend and we can’t wait to go back with family friends."


Aj and Melissa's charter was an experience to say the least! They are a fun loving couple that made us feel right at home. We felt safe and comfortable. The yacht was sparkling clean and they even decorated because I told them we were celebrating a birthday! We didn't know what to expect at first but we had such a great time we even went for a swim in the Hudson River! I've been raving to my friends about this find and can't wait to bring them up for a trip. My only regret is that I found them almost at the end of boating season. I CANT WAIT TO COME BACK!!!! You guys are awesome at what you do! If you can book the charter to watch the sunset on the river, do it!! It was one of the most beautiful views everrr!!



"We had a wonderful time aboard Savalana! The boat was clean and fit all four of us perfectly, and everything we could have needed for a weekend on the water was available for us. We woke up every morning and drank coffee while watching the birds in the nature preserve, and of course we fed the ducks that swam around the river. Chartering the boat for a sunset cruise was the best part of the whole stay! AJ took us up and down the Hudson and was a great guide. We truly could not have asked for a better getaway and reccomend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing and unique experience."



"AJ & Melissa are the Best host EVER! We love our stay on the yacht. The yacht is clean and sunset ride is the BEST. We love our stay ever single time. Can’t wait to go back. Thanks AJ & Melissa!!"

We had a great evening in the river with Catskill Charters. AJ and Melissa were excellent hosts. Our group has made a pact to make this trip an annual event. Looking forward to our next cruise in the beautiful Hudson River.

We had a fabulous 4 hour sunset cruise with Catskill Charters. What a great way for friends to kick back and relax on a summer evening. The boat is beautiful, comfortable and surpassed everyone's expectations. All our needs were met by our safe, fun and informative Captain AJ & First Mate Melissa of Catskill Charters. We had lots of laughs while taking in spectacular scenery on the Hudson River. So looking forward to cruising with them again. Top notch... Highly recommend!!! Thanks so much!!

Our family and friends had a fantastic time on the two hour charter. AJ and Melissa were so welcoming, accommodating and fun! Being on the water, surrounded by beautiful views, was so relaxing and enjoyable. The boat is very comfortable and nice, I couldn't think of a time better spent. Our two year old has not stopped asking to "go on boat" several times a day, so we will be back! Thanks for the wonderful time!!



Melissa and A.J. went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and fun. We went for my boyfriend's birthday and they decorated the cabin for him! It was such a special touch. The cabin is extremely comfortable and has everything you need. We would love to stay with them again, and highly recommend their place!
