Overview

Delaware River Valley Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3BR/2BA/Sleeps 7 comfortably, will accommodate 8

The Red House River Cabin is 1550 luxury square feet and approximately 200 feet from the West Branch of the Delaware River. It sits directly in front of one of the best wild trout fishing holes in the Northeast.

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU CAN CONTACT US DIRECTLY TO BOOK. AVOID THE HOMEAWAY SERVICE FEES!!

The cabin comes with a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and newly renovated open floor plan with living room with cable TV, and Internet - great for entertaining. We are always making improvements to our property and last season's project included two completely renovated, gorgeous bathrooms. Reflecting our pride of ownership, this season's renovations feature a brand new kitchen with a new Frigidaire Gallery 5 burner gas convection range. Other new appliances include a brand new dishwasher and microwave.

The Red House River Cabin is beautiful and comfortable for fishermen as well as non-fishing people. The Red House River Cabin has a covered porch and a 600 sq.ft. deck with patio furniture for outdoor entertaining. Perfect for family get-togethers, couples rendezvous or romantic get-away. Enjoy a private, secluded setting with friends, business people or by yourself for some 'R&R.' Golf courses are within minutes, 3 ski areas are within one hour and a state park with a swimming beach is 15 minutes away. Mountain biking trails nearby or you can bring your canoe or kayak and launch down the road. Come to fish or to relax. Enjoy.

Fishing the Upper Delaware: The Upper Delaware is some of the best dry fly fishing in the East. Serious hatches begin in April with the Hendrickson, Quills, and evolve into the hatches of March Browns and Sulphurs in May. The last few years I have fished sulfur patterns from May until September. Of course, you can always count on various doses of caddis and blue winged olives throughout the season and of course the mysterious tricos on misty summer mornings. There are plenty of riffles and braids to try your favorite nymphs as well. When the water is a little higher, don't be afraid the bang the banks with big streamers whether you are wading or in a boat. The River Cabin is across from the Gentleman's Pool access, canoes can be launched here too. Stilesville and Indian Country drift boat launches are each within about two miles.

Other Activities: Golf, skiing, hunting, and general outdoor pursuits are all within short driving distances. Oquaga State Park is within 6 miles and includes a beach, golf, hiking, and fishing. Other golf courses include the Hancock Golf Course and French Woods about 14 and 20 miles respectively. Elk Mountain skiing is 34 miles, Hunter and Windham are each about 95 miles. As the gateway to the Catskill Mountains and Delaware River Valley you are in the perfect area to explore small towns, hike mountains, and simply get lost! There are several spas in PA and NYS within 30 to 40 miles. Be sure to look for the nesting bald eagles across the street!

Your invitation: We invite you to enjoy our home as we enjoy it. We have personally taken part in all the activities we mention in the descriptions above. We will do our best to put you on the right flies, recommend the right restaurant, and give the best directions we can to make your stay enjoyable. If you are here to fly-fish, imagine fishing for a couple of hours in the morning and then taking in nine holes of golf and still be back on the river in time for the evening hatch! If you don't fish, come and enjoy the peace and quiet and what nature has to offer all in the comfort of a 1500 square foot home away from home.

About Tina Winkler

My husband and I and our 3 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are from the Syracuse, New York area, but recently relocated to the Richmond, VA area. We love to travel with our dogs and they are our 'furr-kids'. My husband is an avid fly fisherman and that kind of directs all of our travels, including Belize. We are also history people and love to sightsee wherever we go. We have been going to Belize for the last 16 years.

Tina Winkler purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Tina Winkler chose Delaware River Valley

We had another property listed with Homeaway, the Red House. It began to rent out so much that my husband had no where to fish, so we bought this property, the Red House River Cabin, back in 2009. While it met our purposes, we immediately set out to make this property our own by steadily making improvements. 2015's project was two completely renovated bathrooms and an open floor plan between kitchen and living room. 2016's project is a brand new kitchen!! We are very excited to hear the feedback from our repeat guests (all of our May and June guests are repeat guests whom we consider friends) and our new guests!

What makes this cabin unique

We love the fact that the Red House River Cabin sits back far from the road and is secluded without being far from town. It is bordered by cornfields on the backside and just really gives the cabin even more privacy. The other reason why it is so great is because it is on the no-kill section of the West Branch of the Delaware River. This is world class fly fishing at its best!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of 5 (and occasional friends) have been blessed with the Winkler's love of fishing! We have frequented both of the cabins they own in the Hancock area between 2009-2011 and have only the fondest memories. We miss our visits and hope to return some day.



Both the Red House in Hancock and the Red House River Cabin in Deposit are well-kept, well-decorated, and welcoming. Our family has felt comfortable as if at home at both of these locations and the owners couldn't be more accommodating.



We have stayed at the Red House in Hancock during all seasons and have been quite comfortable. Along with the cabin itself, the remote surroundings are also peaceful and relaxing. There were a few occasions where our visit to Hancock fell on dates already booked at the Red House and we sorely missed our home away from home when this happened!



When the Winkler's purchased the Red House River Cabin in Deposit, we did not hesitate to rent their new cabin. It's larger, allowing for more friends to join us. We even had a graduation party at this location in June 2011 and the barbeque, porch and manicured lawns were delightful amenities for our celebration!



During our stays, and since, the Winkler's continue to make updates and improvements on the properties (not that they were needed). I would recommend staying at either property at any time whenever in the area!

Fantastic restful vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay at the Red House River Cabin in August 2015. Tina and John are fantastic hosts, responsive to our questions and concerns.. All their recommendations for restaurants, activities and fly-fishing were superb. We really felt at home in this spacious, lovingly decorated and cozy getaway. My husband and son enjoyed fly-fishing for the first time with a Red House recommended guide. It was peaceful to walk along the river in front of the cabin with our dogs and watch the mist that sometimes rises up at dusk. We are looking forward to scheduling another visit!

One Great Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

The Red House River Cabin is everything as advertised, our group of 5 found the cabin to be spacious to give everyone room as needed. The rooms are very clean and comfortable; each bedroom had its own television which was a big plus at night. The cabin is supplied with everything one would need for a stay away from home, the only thing our group needed for our stay was the food we ate. The cabin is perfectly located to meet the recreational needs of our group. Our group is hoping to return to this cabin for many future stays

Cozy Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Red House River Cabin is delightfully decorated so that you feel right at home when you walk in. It is also scrupulously clean and orderly. The views from all the windows are of greenery. Tina was very easy to communicate with and accommodating. We were a party of 6 and had a wonderful time catching up with with each other and some R&R.

Simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Red House River Cabin is a gem. Spacious. Clean. Thoughtfully decorated and furnished. (Loved the master bed!). Fully equipped kitchen. Lovely living room/den area with games, puzzles, TV, etc. Everything you could possibly need and more! Whether looking north toward the mountains or south toward the river (which is literally across the street), the views are spectacular. We highly recommend a morning (or nighttime) fire in the cabin's firepit - an idyllic experience! Tina was super helpful and accommodating. We couldn't have asked for a better experience, and we'll definitely be back. Thanks for everything!

P.S. Breakfast at Butterfields is a must. (The chocolate chip hot cakes are heavenly!) And if you like cats, they've got plenty to keep you company while you eat : )
