Why Darek Wajda chose Delaware River Valley

Very private home on a peninsula surrounded on three sides by the lake. Long gated driveway with lots of parking, 450 feet of waterfront, volleyball court, motorboat lake with no public access. Lake is fed by natural springs, great fishing, and swimming.

What makes this house unique

Ideal for the family who wants to return to the beauty of nature! Your family will experience hours of fun playing volleyball, swimming in the lake, bicycle riding, walking, and making a lifetime of family memories.

Fantastic house, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

I came with some friends for the weekend, this house was perfect. Scenic location, beautiful lake, and comfortable rooms. Great deck for relaxing, grilling, and listening to music. The ping pong table was lots of fun too. Highly recommended.

Secluded Lakefront Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A real gem! This house has it all and exceeded all our expectations: amazing view, great swimming/ canoeing/ kayaking, charming open interior, expansive deck, firepit, even a ping pong table and volleyball court! Situated about 1/3 of a mile away from the cluster of other homes, you will feel quite at peace here. You won't see or hear any neighbor because there aren't any! All you hear is the sound of birds, frogs, and trees blowing in the wind. The open living /dining room make it a great place to cook and enjoy a meal with friends. Great gas grill and patio furniture too! The owner, Darek, was very responsive and helped us find an Eagle watching station in the next town. We will definitely be back soon!

Most Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We chose this very beautiful log home for our weekend getaway. Pictures do not do this home justice. Home was very well maintained and equipped with just about anything you could want to do. Located at the end of a secluded road the home was perfect for a peaceful weekend with our family and friends. We enjoyed using the kayaks canoe and paddle boats that were stored under the deck. We were able to see deer, ducks, and an owl. The deck was enormous although it was chilly while we were there we still could not decide where to sit. The taxidermy in the home really gives you the feel of being in a cabin in the woods. The owner Darek was very helpful and fast replying to any questions we had. we are very anxious to rent again in the future and definitely we will be recommending this beautiful home to all of our friends and family.

NYC group getaway

  • 5 of 5

Such a great house! Totally private and peaceful with stunning views of the lake. Well equipped with equipment for the lake/volley ball court; towels & linens; cooking utensils etc. Spotlessly clean. 7 adults fit very comfortably with lots of space. Great fireplace inside. Same outside but we did not get to use due to rain each evening. The closest grocery store was about 4 miles away and was well stocked. Gas station and liquor store beside also. Highly recommend for a getaway wkend, especially as only a short drive (approx 2.5hrs) from NYC.

Best week of relaxation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful log for a week. We were amazed how beautiful and well kept this house was. The pictures don't give this property justice. The house was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities one could want. The owner Darek was very helpful with making our stay a pleasant one. He patiently answered all our questions. The area is very calm and secluded. View from deck is breathtaking. Thank you for sharing your house with us. I highly recommend this place. We would love to come back soon!!!

Vacation July 27 to Aug 5 2013

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many properties and this compares well with others. We had a great time. We partied, played badmitton, ping pong and went kayaking. I caught some good sized bass & pickerel. The house is beautiful and was well kept and clean. There were a few minor inconviences:

No hair dryer (had to run out & buy one)-ad states included

After bringing home leftovers from the restaurant we discovered there were NO microwave safe plates

Other than that the following would have been helpful:

Different sized cutting boards, telephone book, new batteries for remotes & clocks, night light bulbs, sprayer in shower, larger coffee mugs, floating island for kitchen, directions for dvd/vcr/tv's, and we did not know if we were allowed to use the tiki hut?

I also attempted to fill the outside tiki lamps with the large bottles of fuel provided but the lamps were rotted and ended up spilling flammable fluid on the deck. For safety maybe get rid of the fuel/lamps.

The fire pit was ENORMOUS. There was not nearly enough firewood for the size of the pit. Maybe make it smaller, giant fires can be a hazard.

As stated, this is a beautiful home on a great lot and we would rent again. Darek was easy to deal with.
