Hinchman Acres is pleased to announce the acquisition of Gott's Landing Canoe Livery and Trophy Waters Fly Shop. Steven and Kim Priestrap, the former owners of Gott's Landing, made the decision to sell earlier this year so they could spend more time with family. We wish them all the best!

Please note the former Gott's Landing location has been converted to a family residence. All rentals and inquiries will be handled at the Hinchman Acres location. Pricing for the 2019 season is now available. Please call if you have any questions.


Please pardon our dust while we add on and renovate! In conjunction with sprucing up the front office, we are building an addition for the Trophy Waters Fly Shop which we hope to have completed in May 2019.



We now have 2 drift boats available for rent. A 17' Aluminum River Master and a 15' Fiberglass Hyde. Each will accommodate up to 3 people. The rental rate is $100 per day. If a car spot is required an additional fee will apply. Please call for availability.


In mid April look for the pay-to-fish trout pond to be restocked with 9"-12" rainbow trout. The cost is $.60 cents per inch and the pond is only available to our resort guests.
