About Bob

“Bob has lived on Lake Hopatcong since 2015 and are also 5 star hosts for our two beautiful Lake Houses on AirBnB and HomeAway/VRBO. Bob loves hosting guests on the lake and since I can't use my boat every day, it would be a shame that someone else can't be out on the water having fun.”


Aboard since 2016

    Bob was an excellent host! He gave great directions for where to park and met us as soon as we pulled up. He escorted us to the boat (be prepared there are LOTS of stairs down to the water) and gave excellent and detailed instructions for how to operate everything. The boat was the perfect size for our family - my husband and I and our 3 and 4 year olds. We spent the day cruising around the lake, had a picnic on the boat and even took a dip in the lake. It was a wonderful day!

    The Sea Ray rental was a great ride. Having never driven a boat myself, it was very easy to navigate the boat and the lake was beautiful. Bob was very accommodating and showed us how to do everything properly. Great owner and great rental.

    Bob was AMAZING. He was easy to get in touch with, gave us a detailed and thorough explanation of the boat and lake, and helped us get the tube and skis into the boat. The boat is clean and zippy fast and the lake is huge and spectacular. I would 100% recommend renting this boat. We certainly want to rent it again!

    Bob was super communicative and we found his place and boat with ease. The boat is on the smaller end, but handles really well and was exactly what we wanted. He provided an inner-tube for us to go rafting on, which sealed the deal. Highly recommend!

    Bob was very thorough in his explanation of how to operate the boat. We had a great time using his boat , way better than renting the pontoons that we normally rent. His rental came equipped with a water tube that we had way too much fun on. Definitely will rent again!

    Rented this boat for a day and had a great experience. Pick up and drop off was super easy since Bob was very accommodating, and the instruction Bob provided on the the boat's operations made us feel comfortable with the boat. The family had a great time cruising around the lake and we'll be renting from him again. Definitely recommend!

    Great boat and great service from Bob. Excellent communication throughout the rental process. Bob went above and beyond to accommodate us providing extra equipment, lake advice and easy pick-up and drop-off. The boat was clean, well maintained and performed perfectly for tubing and skiing. Great rental experience we'd gladly do again. Thanks Bob!

    This was an amazing experience. Bob is a great guy was very helpful and explained everything very well. The boat itself is fantastic enough space for 5 people and a cooler without having space issue. I would definitely recommend renting from Bob. The lake is beautiful with plenty of space and great scenery.

    Bob was extremely helpful and flexible to insure we had a great day on the water. He met us and went over all aspects of the boat, which was in good shape and easy to use. Bob allowed us to borrow his tube and rope so we were able to have a variety of fun during the day. The boat was perfect for a group of four (any more would have been too crowded) and there were a few fun spots on the Lake to explore. We look forward to our next rental with Bob.

    We had a great experience renting from Bob on Labor Day weekend. He was very friendly and welcoming. He gave us a quick introduction on how to use his boat and even provided a four person tube. If you never went tubing with a boat, it is a MUST DO!! He also gave us tips on where to stop for lunch and swim. The lake was beautiful and surprisingly with not many folks there. I also dropped my keys in the lake near his garage and Bob surprised me the next day and said he found them. He actually dove in to get them for me and mailed them after. Overall it was a fantastic boating experience and I would definitely rent from Bob again!

    Bob's boat was perfect for lake hopatcong. We rented it along with his home which is in the center of it all. how convinent! He also threw in a tube for us to go on in the lake. Great for traveling to the local restaurants and fishing at the best places on the lake.

    Bob is very nice to work with, and the boat is great. My wife and I had a great day on Lake Hopatcong, stopping for breakfast at the Main Lake Market, swimming at the cove, and docking at a nice restaurant for an early dinner.

    We rent boats often and have to say, the personal experience of not using a marina spoiled us. Bob's boat is in a perfect location for a beautiful day on the water. Also, the boat is garaged and with super easy access in and out and close to gas and restaurants. No extra fee for his awesome tube and sports life jacket. These little extras and more made it an easy experience to recommend to those looking for a day on Lake Hopactong.

    Had a great time with Bob's boat. Bob told us where to go with the boat and recommended places where we could dock and enjoy the lake. He even lent us a tube so we could have fun - and we did! His boat is really nice and well taken care of . Will definitely rent from Bob again sometime this summer! Thanks Bob!
