Overview

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.

Great Getaway with a Spectacular View

  • 4 out of 5
Our group of 7 adults stayed in July 2014 for a long weekend. We were able to stay comfortably during that time. There were enough beds and bathrooms to accommodate us. The living room space was nice and open, and the second floor porch was a highlight; it offered beautiful views of the river and surrounding land. We all enjoyed our morning coffee there, taking in the peaceful scene.

The owner, David, was very responsive to any questions we had about the property or the surrounding land. He gave us directions to reach the river and suggestions for places to go out in neighboring towns. While the river is accessible from the house, the route to the river is a bit of a hike through some wooded areas and across train tracks. Be sure to ask David for explicit directions for how to access the river, as it may not be readily apparent from the road your first time.

The driveway up to the house is a little windy and steep. Just be aware if you happen to drive a small car you might face some difficulty on the way up. It is also not available on Google maps; be sure to clarify the exact directions before you head out. We found the property by locating a nearby summer camp called Camp Chayolei Hamelech and making that our landmark during our drive.

The house was well equipped with lots of movies, games, and an entertainment center (VHS/DVD) that worked well. The kitchen is outfitted with new appliances and the basics, but overall as a large group we would have liked more utensils, flatware and pots/pans. We feel this is important because if you plan to go here, be aware that there aren't many local places to eat out so cooking is the best option. The dining room is excellent, a nice open space with a long table to enjoy an extended meal with friends. There is also washer and dryer in the ground level, which is a plus.

The land surrounding the house is beautiful and hike-able. We hiked up behind the house to look for the waterfall that we were told was on the property (and I think is in the pictures posted here) but it was dried out. This may be a seasonal issue.

Overall we enjoyed our weekend stay very much, and David was a great host. There was also someone on site to meet us when we arrived, and to give us a tour of the house and the immediate surroundings. The people in the area were also very nice and helpful when we asked for directions. Would recommend for nature lovers and those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle for a few days.

Owner's Response: A bunch of great people, I would love to have them back. This is our first year renting to the open market. Historically we rent to folks from New York City. Our client list was built on word of mouth. Our clientele are high profile people that enjoy anonymity. There is another address we can supply you with that will take you right to the foot of the property, (but only if you promise to keep it a secret) please ask for it if you feel you will have difficulty finding the estate. We stock out just enough utensils for your party, we have plenty. If you feel you may need additional please dont hesitate to ask. There is a dishwasher, so feel free to put it to work.

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.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear the house did not provide an exceptional experience. This is truly the first time I have had a guest feel this way. I believe all the disappointments listed in the review were clearly addressed in the profile. Please read the profile thoroughly, as with anything else in life, so that you know what you are getting into. If after you read the profile you find you have additional requests we will do our best to accommodate them.
