Just a 1 hr/45 min drive from Manhattan, this charming 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom rustic cottage nestled on 2.5 wooded acres in Sullivan County retains all the character of it’s 1940’s origins while still satisfying urban-weekender expectations with a clean & artful recent renovation.
Set at the lush-fern edge of a pristine, trout-stocked lake, the gentle waterfall rush under the covered bridge just off the back deck will soothe your troubles away in between the swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, skiing & tennis playing – yes, work on that back-hand in a mixed doubles match (deer vs people) or just catch some rays as an observer on the private regulation size court.
The property also features a 2 car garage, hi-speed DSL, phone, TV-DVD only, large open living area with fireplace, open eat-in kitchen, rec room with pool table & outdoor patio facing the water with gas grille. Other accessible amenities include 1 rowboat (seat 5 max), 1 canoe, 2 kayaks & 1 fishing rod.
Nearby activities & points of interest abound, including the Delaware River with rafting & canoeing (7 min drive), NJ High Point National Park, Bethel Woods Arts Center, Kadampa Meditation Center, Malibu Dude Ranch with horseback riding/rodeos & an endless list of quaint towns with unique, boutique main streets offering area goods, crafts, organic foods, art galleries & a diverse array of restaurant cuisine, both fine-dining & casual.
Perfectly convenient for those in the area for the Kadampa Meditation Center. A beautiful home (and it is home to your hosts) with all the comforts. We even had the joy (elective) of resident cat, Kato, staying on with us Kadampas. Full kitchen, 2 baths, 4 bedrooms and views of the water path leading to the lake. Fireplace available for guests for the chilly times. We were all so busy at the Festival that we did not participate in the available lake access but, it looked inviting. Bring food (& wine)...it does seem that the area is a bit short on provisions...but other then that, you will love it.
We had a very nice stay over the July 4th weekend. The house is nicely secluded with plenty of space to play and relax, and the many extra features such as the lake access with watercraft and private tennis court were much-appreciated. The kitchen is nicely updated and well-appointed, including dishwasher, gas range, and microwave, with a large table suitable for family dining. A full size washer and dryer were nice to have, and the pool table was a pleasant surprise. The two full baths are nicely updated and tiled. The spiral staircase is neat but does make getting larger/heavier luggage up to the second floor difficult. One area at the back of the house was off limits, as it was under construction. Also be advised that the railing on the second floor overlooking the living room may pose a problem for younger children. Overall, we were happy to have spent our long weekend here and would consider staying here again in the future.
Our property features a regulation size tennis court nestled in the woods as well as a small dock for accessing a pristine trout-stocked lake with several watercraft options: canoe, rowboat, 2 kayaks. We also have another dock anchored in the middle of the lake. Beyond biking & hiking the immediate area there are many things to do including: Delaware River canoe/kayak/tubing, farms/farmer's markets, historical sites, a variety of charming downtown's with unique shops, antiquing, art galleries & performance theatres, as well as snow skiing at Big Bear in PA. Other specific points of interest include: Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, NY. The Kadampa Meditation Center, Bushkill Falls, PA, Malibu Dude Ranch. Nearby towns include: Narrowsburg, NY, Milford, PA, Honesdale, PA, Hawley, PA.
