Deposit Cabin Rental Photos and Description
3BR/2BA/Sleeps 7 comfortably, will accommodate 8
The Red House River Cabin is 1550 luxury square feet and approximately 200 feet from Delaware River. It sits directly in front of one of the best wild trout fishing holes in the Northeast. The cabin comes with a fully equipped state-of-the-art kitchen and boasts a large living room with cable TV, and Internet - great for entertaining. It has been completely remodeled; beautiful and comfortable for fishermen as well as non-fishing people. The Red House River Cabin has a covered porch and a 600 sq.ft. deck with patio furniture for outdoor entertaining. Perfect for family get-togethers, couples rendezvous or romantic get-away. Enjoy a private, secluded setting with friends, business people or by yourself for some 'R&R.' Golf courses are within minutes, 3 ski areas are within one hour and a state park with a swimming beach is 15 minutes away. Mountain biking trails nearby or you can bring your canoe or kayak and launch down the road. Come to fish or to relax. Enjoy.
Fishing the Upper Delaware: The Upper Delaware is some of the best dry fly fishing in the East. Serious hatches begin in April with the Hendrickson, Quills, and evolve into the hatches of March Browns and Sulphurs in May. The last few years I have fished sulfur patterns from May until September. Of course, you can always count on various doses of caddis and blue winged olives throughout the season and of course the mysterious tricos on misty summer mornings. There are plenty of riffles and braids to try your favorite nymphs as well. When the water is a little higher, don't be afraid the bang the banks with big streamers whether you are wading or in a boat. The River Cabin is across from the Gentleman's Pool access, canoes can be launched here too. Stilesville and Indian Country drift boat launches are each within about two miles.
Other Activities: Golf, skiing, hunting, and general outdoor pursuits are all within short driving distances. Oquaga State Park is within 6 miles and includes a beach, golf, hiking, and fishing. Other golf courses include the Hancock Golf Course and French Woods about 14 and 20 miles respectively. Elk Mountain skiing is 34 miles, Hunter and Windham are each about 95 miles. As the gateway to the Catskill Mountains and Delaware River Valley you are in the perfect area to explore small towns, hike mountains, and simply get lost! There are several spas in PA and NYS within 30 to 40 miles. Be sure to look for the nesting bald eagles across the street!
Your invitation: We invite you to enjoy our home as we enjoy it. We have personally taken part in all the activities we mention in the descriptions above. We will do our best to put you on the right flies, recommend the right restaurant, and give the best directions we can to make your stay enjoyable. If you are here to fly-fish, imagine fishing for a couple of hours in the morning and then taking in nine holes of golf and still be back on the river in time for the evening hatch! If you don't fish, come and enjoy the peace and quiet and what nature has to offer all in the comfort of a 1500 square foot home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Our family of 5 (and occasional friends) have been blessed with the Winkler's love of fishing! We have frequented both of the cabins they own in the Hancock area between 2009-2011 and have only the fondest memories. We miss our visits and hope to return some day.
Both the Red House in Hancock and the Red House River Cabin in Deposit are well-kept, well-decorated, and welcoming. Our family has felt comfortable as if at home at both of these locations and the owners couldn't be more accommodating.
We have stayed at the Red House in Hancock during all seasons and have been quite comfortable. Along with the cabin itself, the remote surroundings are also peaceful and relaxing. There were a few occasions where our visit to Hancock fell on dates already booked at the Red House and we sorely missed our home away from home when this happened!
When the Winkler's purchased the Red House River Cabin in Deposit, we did not hesitate to rent their new cabin. It's larger, allowing for more friends to join us. We even had a graduation party at this location in June 2011 and the barbeque, porch and manicured lawns were delightful amenities for our celebration!
During our stays, and since, the Winkler's continue to make updates and improvements on the properties (not that they were needed). I would recommend staying at either property at any time whenever in the area!
