Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Damascus - River Rock

This is a Family oriented rental - details at www.campriverrock.com

This warm and inviting home is 1 mile - a beautiful walk - to the quaint and growing hamlet of Callicoon, NY. The home sleeps 8 adults in 4 double beds and 4 children in bunk beds. There is an additional fee for each person over the capacity of 12; or for each adult that exceeds the maximum of 8. 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. If you like to flyfish... 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 2017!

Local shopping is easy to access with a farmer's markets in Callicoon on Sundays - featuring organic fare and local artisans. Pecks Supermarket is also right in town. Let us know in advance and we can have all your organic shopping done for you and waiting in the fridge!

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. And up around the corner a little bowling alley that has unbelievable food and a bar. Feeling outdoorsy? Rent a bicycle, a kayak, canoe or a raft! Really outdoorsy? Try Ridgeback Sports new stand-up paddle boards. 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.

The house is child-friendly, and the kids will never want to leave their cozy bunk bed haven.

There is an abundance of nature, from soaring eagles, deer, the occasional bear, foxes, squirrels and more.

About owner/property manager

Maureen and George are outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers! We fell in love with this property as soon as we saw the majestic Delaware River in the backyard! Maureen, as a former world traveler, has shared her collection of arts and crafts from around the globe. We live in the home when it is not rented so it has the feel of a warm and well cared for residence.

Why owner/property manager chose Delaware River Valley

The views at any time of day are hard to beat. Once you visit you will never want to leave! We have eagles, blue heron, deer, and an unbelieveable amount of song birds.

The river is right in your backyard! A gentle walkout and you are in the mighty Delaware River !

What makes this house unique

This area is full of things to do. It is a haven for foodies - with graduates from the Culinary Institute of America opening Farm to Table restaurants in the area. The river is full of water sports - canoeing, rafting, stand-up paddle boarding, fly fishing, drop fishing and more. There is plenty of skiing in the area for winter enthusiasts. Any season, any time, River Rock is magnificent to behold. Please visit our website www.campriverrock.com for all the details.

Wonderful House wonderful river location

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely and comfortable. The Kitchen/dining room area is good size - way more than enough for 6 of us. The bed we slept on was comfortable. A great place to stay.

The back yard ends on the Delaware river and that was a treat for my grandsons - we skipped stones, built stone towers in the middle of the river, walked to islands in the middle of the river. I started to cross all the way but decided against it because the current is strong.

There is plenty to do in the area. We went to the Farmer's Market Sunday morning and it was spectacular - veggies, cookies, and amazingly good meat. We got hamburger and sausage and grilled, made s'mores took a canoe trip a little ways down the river.

The house was clean and ready when we got there. Highly recommended.

Fantastic holiday house for kids and adults

  • 5 of 5

We've rented several holiday houses in the past but none have been so thoughtfully presented as this. Clean comfy beds, towels, toys, books and games for the kids and all the basics you'd need in the kitchen, all we had to do was enjoy the river.

We had 5 kids aged 6 and under. They LOVED the lawn running down to the river and the screened porch full of toys. They played while the adults relaxed. We drank coffee watching the mist rise off the river in the morning from the back deck and cooled off in the river when it got hot. We enjoyed walking into Callicoon for the farmers market or a drink at Matthew's.

Highly recommended, particularly for families. We will be back unless we find our own place on the river first!

Delaware River Dream

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome experience. The house is immaculate. My kids were in love with the kiddie cove. Everything was so clean from the multitude of towels to the cozy comfy bedsheets, from the bathrooms, right down to the fully stocked kitchen. The bed rooms felt like being in a rustic log cabin in the woods. Maureen provided everything we needed and more. She was very friendly and such a pleasure to deal with. My family was extremely happy with the house and the overall experience. The deck and backyard was just as amazing as inside. The adirondack chairs around the fire ring was the perfect end to a great day. We had a wonderful time and created great memories that will last forever. We will definitely come back for a longer stay.

Lovely home with fantastic river view on a quiet road.

  • 5 of 5

My family has rented this home every summer for 5 years. The owners take great care in creating a cozy atmosphere and making sure we have everything we need for an enjoyable stay. The kitchen is fully stocked and all linens are provided. My children found a shelf full of books to read and games to play. The real treat is the backyard. There is a small screened porch, a large deck, and a huge lawn complete with a fire pit surrounding by Adirondack chairs. The lawn slopes down to the Delaware River. My children enjoyed wading and watching deer come down for a drink. We were able to canoe directly to the house one day and away from the house the next. The owners are very responsive and live nearby. I highly recommend this house for a beautiful, quiet river getaway.
