Closed or VERY Limited Dates:
We will be CLOSED or will be VERY Limited on the dates below.  If you are organizing a large group, we may be able to accommodate you, but we won't have a large staff selection.  We may also be slow to respond during or just before these events.  Queen's River Kayak Company is run by Kenyon's Grist Mill.  In the summer and fall, Kenyon's is involved in a series of community fairs that help fund its historic property.  They are extremely important to the survival of the mill.  Most of the kayak staff works these fairs since they are "all hands on deck" events.  We apologize for the inconvenience, but we will see what we can do!  The months of September and October are the most difficult.
