Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 7, internet access

Nestled in the woods along the Delaware River, this cozy cabin features both the quiet seclusion of the woods and the recreation of the Delaware River. Home to skiers, hikers, kayakers, mountain bikers, fly fishers, hunters and naturalists, the cabin is perfect for the family who loves nature or the writer/artist looking for retreat. This charming cabin is surrounded with woods and streams providing privacy and over 300 ft. of river frontage. Beautiful paths and foot bridges lead from the house to the river. Many bald eagles nest in the area. It is in perfect condition with a wood burning fireplace, finished basement with a wood burning stove and a porch looking out to the river. The cabin is on the PA side, 2 miles south of the quaint town of Narrowsburg, NY. A haven to experience, this cabin on the Delaware River guarantees a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere during every season of the year.

Surrounding Area: Many of our visitors have told us they enjoy simply staying at the cabin, reading, birdwatching and exploring the river and forest. But if you want to venture farther out, two miles north of the cabin lies the quaint town of Narrowsburg, NY. Browse the local art and antique galleries. Experience the Tusten Theatre. Relive history with a visit to Fort Delaware. Or take a drive along the beautiful winding roads which parallel the river. Down stream is the historic Zane Grey House. 30 minutes to Honesdale to stroll the streets or ride the Stourbridge Rail, a steam engine journey to the wild west.

Ski Area: 20 minute drive to a choice of two ski slopes, Tanglewood or Big Bear.

There are great cross-country ski trails in Promise Land State Park, 30 minutes from the cabin.

The River: This area of the river boasts of some of the most exciting and varied water on the Delaware River. North of the cabin runs Skinners Falls, a challenging section of rapids. Then the water flows into Narrowsburg over the deepest water in the river. On the stretch of river between Narrowsburg and the cabin, there are rocks and cliffs from which to jump into the river. Further down the river are more rapids and eventually the highest and fastest water on the Delaware. Tubes, canoes and kayaks are available at the house and more to rent from local outfitters.

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.

Nature at Your Doorstep

  • 5 of 5

The Knoll is a lovely, isolated cabin surrounded by beautiful scenery and has direct access to the Delaware River. Although there are a canoe and kayaks for guests use, we did not use them. Frankly, we did not want to drag them back and forth to the river. There is a river front deck which afforded a wonderful view of the river and it's wild life. The house has binoculars available which brought the bald eagles nesting on the NY side close up and personal. A family of otters frolicking in the river were also enjoyable to watch. The river was great fun for our family to swim in and relax. The current was mild and the depth was perfect for even our 8 year old granddaughter. Very little river traffic during our stay, which gave us the feeling of privacy.

We arrived at this lovely cabin in the middle of the heat wave and had not noted that there was no air conditioning. We did locate fans which helped some the first couple evenings but until the heat broke, the house was terribly warm at night. Half of our family used the mattresses in the basement level for sleeping and they were very comfortable. When the heat wave broke, the evening temperatures were cooler and the rest of the week was very comfortable.

The upstairs bedroom configuration was a bit odd - the kids' bunk is generally located in the open area of the upstairs landing. So turning on the hall light to go up the stairs after the kids went to bed could have been a problem. Luckily, they were sleeping in the basement area.

The house was well stocked with equipment and necessary items. Our granddaughter loved playing with the "Fairy House" set up in the living room. She even went in search of Fairies through out the wooded trails. But the fairies remained well hidden.

Oh my gosh - the deer we saw - fawns and adults alike every time we left and returned to the home! A fox and a bear were even spotted on the access road to the home. The fish jumping in the river was such a joy to behold while we were swimming in the river.

Our next trip will be in the fall or the spring - the wonder of nature will be great to behold.

We'll be back for return visits!

  • 5 of 5

The Knoll was a terrific getaway for a few days. Even though the house/cabin does not have air conditioning, the house was comfortable even during the heat wave that we experienced during the Fourth of July holiday. We hope to return to share it with more family and friends, especially to experience a few snowy days. My wife, my dog, and I really enjoyed the fact that we could walk/doggy-paddle across the shallow river bed.

Beautiful, tranquil setting, accommodations just right.

  • 4 of 5

This is one of those settings that makes one exhale and say, “Aaahhh”. Relaxing, eating on the porch are delightful. Temperatures didn’t get above mid 70’s, so no a/c wasn’t an issue. Kitchen is well stocked with utensils, etc. While the river is not visible from the house, the view from the porch into the woods is lovely. The paths to the river are beautiful and well maintained. The descent down the bank carved by high water can be tricky. (Portable stairway?) We did kayak, which was wonderful. Getting the kayaks to the water takes some effort. The paddles are very basic, but hey it’s a rental property. I would love to return in the fall. The quiet is amazing - not even air traffic. That alone is precious. Grateful this property can be rented. Thank you!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for three days with our dog and had a wonderful time. The pictures don’t do the place justice. The property is beautiful. The water wasn’t as close as we thought it would be but there are several paths down to the river through the gorgeous trees. The access point to the river is very steep and anyone with disabilities might have a hard time. But there is a little private beach and a beautiful deck overlooking the water. It was really hot the first night we were there but the cabin had plenty of fans and it was nice and cool in the basement. The cabin itself was very clean and comfortable, was equipped with pretty much everything you need, had a bunch of games, a keyboard, and a ping pong table that kept my kids entertained after long days playing on the water even without a tv. We saw deer, eagles, and even a bear. The scenery and wildlife really can’t be beat. We really enjoyed our stay.

As advertised...AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I stayed her a way to get away for a weekend and just enjoy the outdoors. Liz w(the owner) was great to work with and very responsive. All directions and procedures were very detailed. We stayed over Veteran's Day weekend and it was cold but wonderful. It was totally secluded. Quiet. But we didn't have to worry about being out by the fire late and waking anyone up. We roasted hot dogs and marshmallows. Enjoyed some board games. Everything we needed was at the cabin. We even had a ping ping tournament. This is a great location and I would recommend this cabin and owner to anyone.
