SUMMER RENTALS

It doesn't get much better than sunshine & SUPs


*** OPEN FOR THE 2018 SEASON ***

The 2018 summer season is here! Uncle Dan's and Erehwon are excited to offer stand-up paddleboard (SUP) and kayak rentals. This summer, we will be located at Rosewood Beach in Highland Park and Lloyd and Elder Beaches in Winnetka. Our service runs approximately from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Scroll down for more information about locations, hours and availability.

Stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking are great for building core strength, plus they're a fun and relaxing way to get out on the lake and enjoy the beautiful Chicago summer. Come visit us at the beach and see for yourself!
