Outstanding Getaway Weekend

5 of 5
Had a great weekend with three fishing buddies from work. Easy to get to, beautiful quiet surroundings, the property provides a clean comfortable cabin that is less then two minutes from the river right off the back porch. All of us caught fish every day up and down the river. The use of kayaks and canoe made it even better and seeing an eagle right behind the house was extra nice. Everything we needed was on property, and food can be had in Narrowsburg about five minutes away. If you like the outdoors, fish, or just want to getaway; go to the riverfront cabin.
