Lackawaxen River House
Submitted: July 3, 2012
Stayed: June 2012
We had a long "boys" weekend stay for 8 people (four cars - parking was not a problem) for fishing, golfing, rafting, poker and hanging out. The central living area of the house comfortably accomodated all 8 of us for dining and the screened in back porch/sun room was perfect for our card game. The house has an easy laid back feel to it. There is a large upstairs area with a game room (pool, ping pong, board games, video games) and big screen TV. Most of our folks slept up here, so at night, the main living area was quiet. When it wasn't, the upstairs folks were not bothered by the noise. Parking was easy and accomodating.
The river was teaming with fish at dusk and the fly fishing was great. After a few hours in the river, the hot tub in the backyard was a great place to hang out. We spent a few hours riding the river on inner tubes (owner had four of these available for our use) disembarking right in front of the house on the embankment. We were accompanied in our float by a large eagle that was soaring up and down the river. He eventually landed on a tree close by and we were able to get some great photo's.
The yard is huge (both front and back) and was well kept, with a large stone fireplace in back that was perfect for a late fire and cigar smoking. We saw rabbits, some deer and lots of fireflys.
Although the photo's in the ad show a road out front, you barely notice it's there. We spent the mornings hanging out in the living room, drinking coffee and checking out the view of the river. Very peaceful.
Ultimately, we were close to anything we needed, but felt miles away from everything.
A great place to relax and unwind, thanks Mike!
