You can soak in the splendor of the pristine Delaware River at Hickory Lane Farmhouse. On our shore, you can witness the eagles soar overhead, or just relax in The Gazebo near our waters edge.

We moved up from Long island in 1992 have raised our children here at Hickory Lane. It is a historic home that has history dating back to the 1700's! It has always been full of excitement and adventure. The river has provided us with kayaking, tubing, and other great water fun. It has also provided us a place to rest!
The River has its own rhythmic energy that renews and refreshes on a daily basis. Our children are grown and scattered among the USA, and still feel the draw of the river's welcome. I believe that this is what brought us here in the first place! Now we have the honor of watching our grandchildren enjoy all that it has to offer.
We have also hosted exceptional parties including our daughter and son-in-law's wedding! Each year we hold The Carlstrom Jamboree in which family members come for a weekend of camping and fun.
The gazebo has become our favorite spot to entertain or just wind-down from our busy day. We feel it an honor to share our place in the country with others. We look forward to meeting and talking with new people along their travels.
Gina and Tom kaufmann purchased this apartment in 1992
Tom and I fell in love with this old house in 1978 and only dreamed to one day own it. The opportunity arose and we jumped on it! It took many years to renovate, (it was built in 1794, this is NOT A TYPO!). and at last our dream came true. The apartment in which you will stay, was home of my mother in her final years. This home is full of happiness and history that we will be honored to share!
You will be surrounded by tranquility and grace. The river revives and exhilarates you. Although the apartment is adjacent to our home, you have your own entrance and deck. Don't worry, you are provided with the privacy you seek. The gazebo is also wired for internet so you can actually work from the river's edge if need be, be we recommend you just relax and take in the beauty of all that surrounds you here at Hickory Lane.
My husband, our 2 children, and I stayed here and had a fabulous time. The cottage/apartment was so nicely decorated and CLEAN! The owners provided some snacks, coffee, tea, etc. and the refrigerator had condiments and what-nots. The property was breathtaking. We took the kids swimming in the river and watched an eagle flying overhead. One of our highlights was a suggestion by the owners to hike up Jensen's Ledges. I highly recommend this! Callicoon is a nice little town with a little bit of everything. We will definitely go back.
This is a beautiful waterfront location. The river is very scenic and it is excellent for recreation. The property is well cared for. The hosts were very nice. The rental unit is attatched to their home, but feels private. The interesting village of Callicoon, is only minutes from the apartment, and offers a variety of dinning choices, and amenities. We love the location, are already thinking about our next visit.
Guide fishing tours are available. Bethel Woods Center for Performing Arts. Jensen's Ledges, a great hiking trail over looking the Delaware River Valley.
