This is a very cool place because of the history, but I probably wouldn't consider staying here, though--no heat, electricity, or indoor toilet! Plan on camping!

Lockhouse has been beautifully restored down to the quaint furnishings. Easy towpath access and river view from here too. Nice family outing.

These lockhouses are a real gem. Its true they have no power, and no water, but they are beautiful and scenic. There is plenty of china, and glasses, and tables and chairs inside. The two upstairs bedrooms each have two full size beds, with trundles...More
