RIVER FRONT, MILLION DOLLAR MOUNTAIN VIEW ESTATE

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday estate in Masthope - Wildcat Estate

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Wildcat Estate is 50 private acres located on the edge of the Pocono Mountains and the Delaware River. Across the river are the NY Catskill Mountains. The Estate is ideally situated to enjoy the rustic advantages of Pennsylvania along with the cultural treats of the Catskills.

Food, museums, galleries, shops and sports are at your fingertips, or just sit back and enjoy the Estate in it natural splendor.

For the hunter-gatherer, there is a 1 acre food plot that supports a herd of 30 deer living on the 50 acre estate. Wildcat Estate is bordered by a 3500 acre game land and a private Estate of 2500 acres, a hunter's Eden. You will see flocks of turkey, black bear and herds of young buck and doe. There are two impressive and elusive 9 pointers frequenting the property. For your gatherer side, wild berries are abundant throughout the property and game lands for your enjoyment.

Pennsylvania has no shortage of Ski Mountains; Wildcat Estate is located within an hour of three ski mountains, including Ski Big Bear. The trails at Ski Big Bear border the estate's property.

If fishing is your thing, cast a rod at the edge of the property for rainbow and brown trout, largemouth bass, walleye and pikes. If you can’t catch a fish for dinner you just can't fish. The game lands, a walk down the road, provide excellent brook trout opportunities as well.

Kayaking and canoeing sites are accessible from the property or through any one of the many outfitters located in the area. There are two aluminum canoes on the property which are available to guests.

You can swim the Delaware or if you would prefer to hike your stress away, the property is an ideal place for it. At the foot of the property, river level, the elevation is 300’ above sea level, where the property meets the ski mountain it is at 900’ above sea level (yes we butt up against the ski mountain). This makes for a challenging hike. The property was once home to the Iroquois Indian. On the property you will find ceremonial stone structures, ruins of the home of Iroquois Chief Teedyuskung. Local legend says the sacred rock were the Iroquois Indian came out of the earth is located on the property. The natural sights include a waterfall in wildcat brook (where the estate gets its name) and an old rock quarry.

This is great horse country. If you own your own horse you can board 3 miles away. Trail rides can be arranged through a number of local equestrian ranches, including the stables at Masthope Mountain.

Farm to table, don’t bring groceries. Farmers markets with fresh grown and organic products are all a quick ride away. Most upper-end restaurants in the area use local grown ingredients. Take advantage of clean living with antibiotic and chemical free eating.

For the cyclist, Masthope Plank Rd is a beautiful state road that stretches through Game lands and private forest.

This is paradise, come stay with us for a week or a weekend and see why the local folks always have a smile on their face.

View is amazing, great for wildlife lovers.

  • 3 out of 5
We stayed at this rental for 6 days in August 2014, our party was 4 adults and 4 kids.

Pros:
1. Amazing mountain view, peaceful, filled with wildlife and good river view.
2. Trampoline for the kids, also plenty of room for running around. Excellent movie collection and toys and books for kids.
3. Responsive owner- he replied in reasonable fashion and even drove 2 hours to solve a problem at the house for us. Gave recommendations for local sights and restaurants.
4. Access to Delaware river.
5. Air conditioning worked well.

Cons:
1. River access was not easy to reach and we were unable to directly able to use canoes from the river access.
2. Not truly 4 bedrooms. House seems better suited for 6 rather than 8. Really only three enclosed bedrooms and a playroom has a sleeper sofa, but playroom is a passthrough rather than enclosed.
3. Kitchen is basic, place setting only for 8, no extra dishes. NO MICROWAVE, plan meals accordingly.
4. Trash- Ask the owner for the pass/card for access to Masthope Community for free use of the compacter there (as well as other services at the community). The compactor is ~10min drive and you need to get there when it's open (a few hours, a few days per week).
6. Canoes are available but the paddles were not, we asked and the owner retrieved them for us when he came by for something else.
7. Address is impossible to find on Google Maps and GPS. Be sure to use Bing or get "GPS" searchable address from owner.

Our expectations were different based on the description of the house. We feel minor improvements could make the house a more comfortable place to stay, but overall we had a good stay at the home.
