  Hello I hope all is well during this unusual time. Although we have gotten off to a slow start, we are excited for this season to take off. Last season  we added a second pontoon which has been stripped down over the off season and is currently being refinished. The boathouse is loaded and ready to go, motor boats will be in the water within the week. So get ready to GET OUTSIDE with NBO!


  Call us if you wish to reserve any boats, kayaks, etc. or the deck. It does not cost anything yet (we still are using the honor system). Package deals are available for evenings. Please call us instead of e-mail,... OK.Things get done much faster that way with reservations... 304-299-1768

We are available April 1st. through Oct 31st. via  phone. Services are provided 7 days a week. We are present at the boathouse Saturdays and Sundays during the May thru Sept. months.

Preparing for the year


Waterski/Jetski Rental. We don't have water skis because maximum motor limit is 10hp on lake. That is what makes this lake unique - no big wakes and quiet.

Rental Stuff at North Bend

While visiting Ritchie County, tune your radio station to 98.5 on the FM dial. It is Ritchie Co.'s only locally owned and operated station.This station is also a part of our hub. The station ironically is located in a station (old gas station). So we decided to pump music instead of gasoline. The group only plays old tunes of the past, whether it is Country, Rock, Jazz, Blues, Christian, Saddle Songs, Polka, Old Stories and a host of other genres. Give it a try for a change, after all that is why you're in Ritchie County. It is said that many locals get off their medications after listening for 30 days.

Located in the heart of Ritchie County, 1 mile west of Harrisville, just 6 minutes from Rt. 50.

One does not have to make another appointment with a therapist or psychiatrist until you experience the serenity of North Bend Lake first. It's not the normal "tourist trap" attraction. This place can really reset your outlook in life.
