About the property

Idyllic, renovated, 3BR country escape on 16 acres. Just two hours from NYC!

Sprucewood is a beautiful, 3BR farmhouse with a newly renovated gourmet kitchen, high-speed Internet and most mod-cons and nestled on 16 wooded acres in the gorgeous Upper Delaware River Valley. Just 2 hours from New York City, and perfectly situated between both super-cool little towns of Calicoon and Narrowsburg, NY.

This perfect, cozy and comfortable retreat from the city is one mile from the Delaware River and adjacent to all the galleries, antique stores, farmers' markets and restaurants you've been reading about in New York Magazine, Gothamist, and the NY Times! Complete with a treehouse and side meadow that are perfect for kids to enjoy being kids. And, it's only one mile away from Lander's River Tours for rafting, canoeing, kayaking and fishing on the pristine Delaware River.

The two story home features a modern kitchen, bathroom with a clawfoot tub, washer/dryer, and living room complete with wood-burning stove, flatscreen TV and WiFi. Upstairs, you'll find three bedrooms (1 queen-sized room, 1 full-sized room, and one kid's room with a single bed), and a private study.

The exterior of the home has a screened-in porch perfect for dining or just enjoying the sunbeams while reading. Behind the house you'll find an expansive stone patio with a fire pit and a terraced garden. The house and grounds are surrounded by an old growth forest making it a perfect, secluded country retreat.

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We live in a city and with two little children and a dog. City living gets d after a while. We wanted to spend some quality time, where our children can just be kids and run around and be as loud as they wanted to be. We had nerf gun fights, went on hikes, enjoyed the local eatery, then at night we would wrap it up with a nice fire. Sitting out, on the screened porch was wonderful! To hear nature, watch the hummingbirds go from flower to flower was a perfect way to start the day. Everyone loved it so much, our poor dog was so sad coming back to the city. Thom and Amanda were very attentive and easy to communicate with. Thank you for the memories !

Fantastic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

1860 Farmhouse was the perfect choice for our getaway! From the well-landscaped grounds, to the outdoor shower (with great water pressure) the lazy hammock, the grill, the fire pit, the screened-in back porch (with a farm table overlooking the forest canopy) to the overall charming decor, the owners clearly put time and energy into making the property cozy, charming and utterly relaxing. We would highly recommend this property and will certainly try to book again on our next visit.

Great weekend getaway on the Delaware

  • 5 of 5

We have been going up to this general area on the Delaware for a few years now, and this house has been the best location yet. Great proximity to Calicoon and Narrowsburg. Super cute house, we spent the evenings out on the porch. We highly recommend the property.

Secluded and lovely

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. House is charming and welcoming. The front porch, the patio in back, the yard and woods are so relaxing and inviting. The area could not be more beautiful. (Take a drive up Calkins Road.) Communication with Amanda was helpful and cordial. Thanks!
