This is a must see home. It is over 25,000 square feet and is situated on over 33 acres of land. It is a two hour drive from New York City, and is less than 1/3 of a mile to the Delaware River.

Owner Description: Year Purchased: 2010 -- I am an entrepreneur, residing in New York City.
Why the Owner Chose Narrowsburg: It is close to my primary residence and offers an easy weekend escape for myself and my family. There is much to do, not only at the house, but also in the very nearby surrounding area.
This place is AMAZING!!! Pictures do not do it justice. The kids absolutely loved it. We had an amazing weekend and the weather was picture perfect. We will be renting this house again. Thanks Dan!
We just returned from a weekend at the "mansion." We were a group of 27 family members three generations (15 grandkids ages 5-25). Everyone had a great time. The game room was wonderful and we actually ended up dancing under the disco ball on the dance floor. The indoor pool was a huge plus, and all the kids had a blast.
The reasons I'm not giving it 5 stars are: there's no central air, and only 4 of the 16 bedrooms have air conditioning; none of the bathrooms upstairs had any towel racks or hooks to hang your towels on; The oversized deck only had one table to seat 6 (and it was rusty) and the deck chairs are those old chalky white plastic ones; there is absolutely no artwork (or photos) of any kind on any wall in the house and the bedrooms didn't have any nightstands or lamps. It really shouldn't be described as a mansion because it isn't. It's just a GIGANTIC house.
..... delightful. Perfect for a family reunion. Half a dozen kids under 5... through age 80; 20 adults, 10 kids. Three generations. Idyllic.
This house is awesome! This was our second time renting and it was great - clean, and plenty of amenities. The indoor pool is a big plus. The owner and caretakers are helpful and pleasant. We hope to go back next year!
Also - good Italian catering from nearby Il Castello.
Just came back from a wonderful family gathering. There were 46 of us from age 2 to 66. The place is beautiful and was very clean. The pool area is out of this world and so spacious! We are already hoping we can book again for next year. The photos do not give the place the justice it deserves. The caretaker was very nice and informative and came as soon as we called him after running out of propane for the bar-b-que. Every bedroom has its own bathroom and all were very clean. I can't wait to go back.
I recently spent three nights at this very beautiful house which is perfect for large groups of people. It has many great amenities that are listed here. The best was the large pool with gigantic windows and a volleyball net. A recent addition was the heated stone floor around the pool which was great in the winter. The game room and outdoor basketball court are fun for families and groups of friends. I would recommend this place to most anyone and I'm planning to return. Thanks Dan for a wonderful time.
We just returned from an amazing long weekend in Narrowsburg. This house is incredible – the pictures definitely do not do it justice. We rented the house with a group of 30 ppl – and we could not stop shaking our head at how beautiful the house was, and how much space there was. The best part was that there really was something for everyone (a fantastic and super-comfortable living room for watching TV / playing video games / watching movies, one of the many games/activities in the game room (pingpong, billiards, fooseball, shuffleboard etc.), a giant pool, and a fantastic dining room, AND a dance floor. There was no reason to leave the house, but we enjoyed playing basketball and football outside, and several people went skiing at nearby mountains. An added plus (that we did not expect) was that most rooms had surround sound, so you could plug in your own music. It would be impossible to be bored in this house - fantastic for families or for groups of friends.
It was a very easy drive from NYC, and the rooms each had their own bathroom (this was HUGELY convenient). The house was clean, well-maintained, and towels and linens were provided. The owners were very responsive to calls / emails, and very helpful in getting set up quickly and easily.
Everyone had an unforgettable weekend, and we are already looking forward to renting it again next year. Thanks so much for the fantastic weekend - definitely highly recommended.
