History: The Cadosia Schoolhouse is a three storey brick structure built in the 1920's, containing all the original woodwork. This was the second schoolhouse on this property, the first one was built in 1867. Purchased in 2001 in derelict condition the house has been extensively restored single handedly by the owner and is heated almost exclusively with wood . The Hancock area was once a popular vacation destination and many traces of the O&W railway can be found in the area largely unchanged since that time The garden has a fence around the front and north side and we are dog friendly.We have streams running on both our South and West sides, meeting in front of our SW corner and running half a mile down to the Delaware River where one can enjoy fishing, canoeing or kayaking and swimming all summer long.
Activities: .The Delaware River is famous for it fly fishing and we have had groups from as far away as Canada stay at the house We have an extensive library of books and vinyl records, all rooms have a separate sound system with Mp3 player input . We are in a shallow valley, with nice hikes in the hills surrounding us. Wildlife is abundant in our area, which is famous for the eagles and hawks which nest nearby. .
