Property description

You can soak in the splendor of the pristine Delaware River at Hickory Lane Farmhouse. On our shore, you can witness the eagles soar overhead, or just relax in The Gazebo near our waters edge. The gazebo has become a favorite place for morning coffee, afternoon iced tea, or evening cocktails. It is complete with internet so you are never 'out of touch' even while enjoying a gentle summer breeze!

The Delaware River Valley is abundant with fish making it a natural habitat for all types of wildlife. There are many tour guides available for those interested in learning the art of fly fishing along this magnificent river. Canoe, raft, and kayak rental are available nearby.

You can enjoy an outdoor barbecue or picnic in our yard. If you choose to dine out, we are just a mile away from the tastefully seasoned hamlet of Callicoon. Scattered among the finest restaurants you can also find our very own Brewery, antique shops, art galleries, boutiques, and gift shops. Callicoon also has its own movie theater!

Callicoon always have something enticing going on, Summer festivals, Music in the Park, or take in an Art Walk. Dickens on the Delaware is Callicoon's newest event. The hamlet is transformed into a Victorian Christmas Wonderland with caroling, horse drawn sleigh rides, hot chocolate and cookies! Mentioned are just are just a few highlights that should not be missed! Check out for dates and other events. And don't overlook winter, we are just a short drive away from several ski resorts for Snow Bunnies!

The Farmer's Market is in full swing, Sunday's year round! Not only does it feature the freshest of produce, but artisan breads and cheeses, wine sampling, and a variety of items created by local artists. It is a fabulous way to take in our local flavor!

In other nearby villages in both Sullivan and Wayne Counties, there are points of interest to entice all age groups. It is just a 20 minute drive to Bethel Woods Center of the Arts,the original site of Woodstock, which is a state-of-the-art outdoor amphitheater that hosts an array of concerts. The Monticello Raceway and Casino is just a short distance away, as well as the Villa Roma Resort, in Callicoon, NY. Historic Hawley and Honesdale, PA. is also located nearby.

They also offer a children's theater. These shows are performed in an old renovated barn. Cabaret Evenings are amazing and the food is scrumptiously created by Jill, from Jill's Kitchen.

While in Callicoon you must take in a movie. We have the only movie theater in the county! This beautifully appointed Art Deco gem sits just 2 miles from Hickory Lane Farmhouse.

If you enjoy the outdoors, Jensen's Ledges, a great hiking trail over looking the Delaware River Valley, a great way to get reacquainted with nature.

Ridge Back Sports is often organizing 5K-10K events and his popular Scenic Bike Tours and Pedal & Pub events. TJ hosts many benefits for charity. Bike Rentals are available.

Guide fishing tours are available through Sweetwater Guides. It seems that often, there boats are right outside our home in our river's eddy catching walleyes, bass, shad, and other aquatic dwellers.

There are many places in which you could rent a kayak, raft , tube or canoe. Soaring Eagle Campground is just north of Callicoon, in Long Eddy,NY. You can rent from them and float down to Hickory Lane!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: We moved up from Long island in 1992 have raised our children here at Hickory Lane. It is a historic home that has history dating back to the 1700's! It has always been full of excitement and adventure. The river has provided us with kayaking, tubing, and other great water fun. It has also provided us a place to rest! The River has its own rhythmic energy that renews and refreshes on a daily basis. Our children are grown and scattered among the USA, and still feel the draw of the river's welcome. I believe that this is what brought us here in the first place! Now we have the honor of watching our grandchildren enjoy all that it has to offer. We have also hosted exceptional parties including our daughter and son-in-law's wedding! Each year we hold The Carlstrom Jamboree in which family members come for a weekend of camping and fun. The gazebo has become our favorite spot to entertain or just wind-down from our busy day. We feel it an honor to share our place in the country with others. We look forward to meeting and talking with new people along their travels.

Why the Owner Chose Callicoon:
Tom and I fell in love with this old house in 1978 and only dreamed to one day own it. The opportunity arose and we jumped on it! It took many years to renovate, (it was built in 1794, this is NOT A TYPO!). and at last our dream came true. The apartment in which you will stay, was home of my mother in her final years. This home is full of happiness and history that we will be honored to share!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
You will be surrounded by tranquility and grace. The river revives and exhilarates you. Although the apartment is adjacent to our home, you have your own entrance and deck. Don't worry, you are provided with the privacy you seek. The gazebo is also wired for internet so you can actually work from the river's edge if need be, be we recommend you just relax and take in the beauty of all that surrounds you here at Hickory Lane.
