Dingmans Ferry Rental Photos and Description
1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

The cottage is nestled among high hemlocks facing Dingmans Creek, which can be heard gurgling night and day. After duty as a stable and carriage house the barn was converted to living quarters sometime in the 1950s. It was renovated in 2001 and won Better Homes and Garden’s Home Improvement Contest and was featured as their cover story in October 2002. The guidelines for the renovation were to “preserve the irreplaceable.”

The lower level has two fireplaces. The one in the living room is wood burning and the one in the kitchen is gas. The walls and floors are primarily stone and the living room's vaulted ceiling is 30 feet high. The six skylights allow guests to enjoy sun, rain and snow.

The loft has a magical bedroom with windows that overlook the creek. The cottage was featured in Better Homes and Gardens, Good Housekeeping and Wood Beautiful. It was also used as a location for Hallmark Cards 2005 Christmas card collection.

We had such a relaxing & enjoyable time at your cottage, which is surrounded by beauty with a "zen" like feel to it. Sitting along side the creek and falling asleep to the babbling sounds of it was amazing. Thank you for your hospitality and for sharing you slice of heaven with us.

Zen. Perfect. Sublime

  • Submitted: Mar 15, 2013

Zen. Perfect. Sublime. Amazing. Chill. Spectacular. Cozy. Beautiful. Inviting. Romantic. Awesome. These are but a few words we would use to describe this weekend, your cottage & your hospitality.

What started out as a simple search for a hotel in the area, turned into a fairytale...One that we will not forget anytime soon.

This may have been our first visit but it will not be our last, and rest assured, we will let others know about this place as well.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

The Governor's Cottage in Dingman's Ferry was a perfect weekend getaway. The cottage was warm and welcoming with a beautiful creek right outside. The owners, Sonda and Lee, provided great tips and suggestions about the surrounding area. We enjoyed eating out in Milford, hiking with our dogs in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, napping on the hammock outside the cottage and sipping on wine beside the fireplace.

A Dream Stay

Dear Sonda
I want to thank you for the BEAUTIFUL time we've spent at the cottage. So many details to enjoy; the house is amazing (it truly is an award winner and a landmark), two days of a dream. It was warm, it was comfortable, it was amazing from the second we came. The housekeeper is great, everything was clean, ready, spotless. For those who will visit I want to say - all you might need is in the house - towels, soap, shampoo, drying fan, books, movies, CDs... The kitchen has all the utensils and appliances. I would love to recommend the house to all my friends and visit myself again.
