The entire Indiana section of the St. Joseph can be canoed by putting in at Mottville, Michigan. The first stretch covered in this guide, however, is from Bristol, Indiana, to the Elkhart Dam, a distance of about 8 miles. There is a kayak and canoe rental two (2) minutes from the Murphy Guest House. You can easily spend an afternoon floating along the river as far as the Elkhart Dam.
The Murphy Guest House offers some great bed and breakfast packages. So why not take advantage of one and let us help plan your stay? Looking for a romantic getaway? We offer a rest and relaxation package. How about a scrapbooking weekend, or perhaps dinner and a show? Contact Us to see what we currently offer.
