spots, and handle all the hassles of transporting boats and gear.

Fantastic, day-long private canoe trip was the highlight of our vacation
"During our 4 day trip to the area, we booked a private canoe trip with Keith at Montgomery Adventures. His wife, Lori, was wonderful to deal with when we were planning the day leading up to our trip, and they were extremely flexible to our schedule. Keith picked up me, my husband, and our 2 Labs at the Phinneas Swann B&B (LOVELY!) in the morning and transported the 4 of us to a hidden spot to launch our two canoes on the Missisquoi River (one for Keith and the equipment, and one for the 4 of us). We've canoed a few times and are certainly no experts; Keith was exceedingly patient when we got stuck in shallow water or when we had to corral our dogs back in the boats. He was a pleasure to talk to about the area, wildlife, Montgomery life, etc. My husband, a photographer, was able to stop and take photos whenever he wanted, we had no set timetable. We spent hours floating/paddling down the river, and did not see another person the entire time. We stopped along the banks where Keith cooked up an amazing lunch of BBQ chicken on a little grill, accompanied by Lori's delicious macaroni salad, bread, wine, and dessert. It was heaven. And very reasonably priced to boot. Afterwards Keith took us to see and photograph Big Falls, a beautiful waterfall with excellent photo opportunities. Bottom line, this trip was EXCELLENT, with beautiful scenery, a carefree atmosphere, and good company. Thanks Keith and Lori - we cannot recommend you guys enough!"

Northeast Kingdom by Kayak!
"We just spent a week in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont and capped our stay with a wonderful kayak ride with Montgomery Adventures. It was just the perfect way to end the week. The owners of Montgomery Adventures, Keith and Lori, could not be more gracious, accommodating or knowledgeable. From the moment you meet them both, you understand that they are nature purists and you are getting the real deal. Montgomery Adventures has everything you need for a beautiful day on the river. All you need to bring is the desire to be blown away by the beauty of the Northeast Kingdom. And believe me, you will be. Keith and Lori also offer dogsled trips in the fall and winter, which should be amazing, given our experience with them as our river guides. If you're in the Northeast Kingdom, don't hesitate. Book a trip. In an area with amazing hikes and natural beauty, our time on the river was easily one of the highlights of the week. Thanks Keith and Lori!"

So much fun and laughter. It was good for the soul.
"Having had an incredible moonlit dogsled ride last winter, we came back and tried our hand at paddling. The paddling equipment was in excellent condition, Keith takes care of everything and in no time you are off padding this lazy, ancient waterway. Birdlife everywhere, silence abounds and you are immersed in the beauty of northern Vermont. My girlfriends and I also got the chance to catch up with our news as we gently directed our canoes down the river. I will be back. Thanks Keith and Lori!"
