We are here for you anytime during your stay at the Old River House. We are on-site at the Old Rigging Loft. an apartment in the Barn where Boat Builders of the 1800's use to 'Rig' ships for sailing. The 'Rigged sailboats' were then moved down Green street to the now Arundel Yacht Club, and launched.
