This warm and inviting home is 1 mile - a beautiful walk - to the quaint and growing hamlet of Callicoon, NY. In addition, the property is located within the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River National Park. Here is the website for the park - we are located between Callicoon and Damascus https://www.nps.gov/upde/index.htm.
The home sleeps 8 adults in 4 double beds and 4 children in bunk beds. We are now accepting dogs on a case-by-case basis. There is a small additional fee for dogs. Please contact the manager and we can discuss. We do not rent to groups where there is no adult over the age of 25. We have a maximum capacity of 12 with a limit of 8 adults (we reserve the right to withhold funds from the damage deposit to cover inaccurately reported numbers staying at the house). Our rate of 300.00 is for a total of 8 people. The rent increases, 25.00 per person per night, up to the total of 12 people.
Two full baths and a well-equipped and stocked kitchen make the living easy. The backyard is spacious and flat enough for volleyball, badmitten, croquette and more. A covered patio attached to the garage has a gas grill and charcoal grill for cooking out. The back deck has plenty of seating to sit and relax or for eating outside. There is a large firepit, right by the river with additional seating. Firewood for firepit is available for purchase.
If you like to fly-fish... just step right into the river and float your line.
Our Summer season booked up quickly this year, so please book in advance. We can break the payment into increments. We look forward to hosting you again in 2019!
Local shopping is easy to access with a farmer's markets in Callicoon on Sundays ... 11 to 2... featuring organic fare and local artisans. Pecks Supermarket is also right in town.
There are several unique and trendy clothing stores where you are sure to find a one-of-a-kind piece - or a gift for a friend. There are good restaurants - everyone loves Ba and Me - a Vietnamese shop that serves out a small window. Like being overseas! The bars have a welcoming atmosphere and live music. There is also the local movie theatre - quaint and comfortable - with an outstanding candy selection. Feeling outdoorsy? Rent a bicycle, a kayak, canoe or a raft! Really outdoorsy? You can come down the mighty Delaware and step right out of the water into the back yard of River Rock House where a drink and a barbecue can await you.
In many ways - with just a 2 hour travel time - this little hamlet is a secret hideaway for NYC people who just want to get away from it all and have fun - indoors and out.
In the Summer there is the Callicoon Country Fair - a carnival and fair all rolled into one. Expect live performances, local artisans, contests and more.
Bethel Woods - the site of the famous Woodstock is 20 minutes away with topline performers - especially in the Summer.
Like to fish? The environs are famous for fly fishing. You could wake up in the morning, have your cup of coffee and wade right out into the river from the backyard and catch a rainbow trout. We can also arrange private fly fishing excursions with locals who know where the fish like to hide. Horseback riding is plentiful from beginners to advanced riders.
