KAYAK FOR TWO EXPERIENCE
Sometimes the quickest way for couples to get a new rhythm together is to try a new activity. This summer, the Huron House Bed and Breakfast in Oscoda, Michigan, is offering guests the opportunity to reconnect along a romantic tandem kayak ride along the beautiful AuSable River. The tandem kayak experience is self-guided and spans 2-hours, leaving couples plenty of time to talk, laugh, and take in the scenery. Tandem kayaks (or double kayaks) are designed like small boats and fit two people who get to co-paddle. The person seated in the back generally mimics the person in the front – making the kayaks a great exercise in teamwork and communication.

  • 2-night stay at the Huron House Bed and Breakfast
  • 2-hour tandem kayak rental
  • Complimentary next-day breakfast-in-bed
