For Sale: A Catskills Institution on the Esopus Creek

A search of the listings revealed that Town Tinker Tube Rental in Phoenicia is listed on the market for $1,695,000. The business, which has been around for over three decades, has been offering visitors the chance to float on an inner tube on the Esopus Creek, but don’t for a second think this is some kind of mellow drift on a meandering creek. Yes, some parts of the ride are mellow, but other parts can be adrenaline-bumping and exhilarating. Riding the Esopus on a tube is definitely one of our favorite ways to experience this beautiful setting.

According to the listing, which you can find on Win Morrison, a buyer with the desire to invest in the Catskill could essentially take over this business and all that comes with it, a barn that houses extensive inventory of equipment, Uniroyal Tube Tester, seat boards, flotation devices, kayaks, workshop tools, big parking lot, picnic tables, and three vintage school buses for transport to the float drop-off on the creek. Who’s ready to jump in with both feet?
