Shehawken Lake cottage description

Fantastic location directly on the waterfront of Lake Shehawken in Rural Pennsylvania. 60 acre spring fed lake adjoining two 400 acre farms. Nothing but tranquility surrounds. Minutes from Hancock, NY.

Recently renovated four season lakefront cottage has all the amenities to make your vacation comfortable.

Gental slope to private lake for swimming, boating and fishing. Walk out the front door to hiking and biking. Near miles and miles of trails through state gamelands. Minutes to the West Branch Delaware River for world class fly fishing, or drive a little further south to the Main Stem Delaware River for rafting and canoeing.

House has recently renovated kitchen, and two renovated bathrooms (1 double shower, 1 clawfoot bathtub) and rental comes with clean white linens and towels. House has three bedrooms that sleeps up to 6 adults plus 4 children (full bed in each of three bedrooms, plus bunk beds in two of the larger rooms).

Lake Shehawken is a spring fed lake that has modest homes and cottages that have been owned by families for generations. The few renters tend to be families that come back year after year. Fantastic place to enjoy the solitude and relax.

Located in the North East corner of Wayne County, PA, just minutes from Hancock, NY (convergence of East and West Branches of Delaware River). Aproximately 3 hours door-to-door from NYC or Philadelphia.

No Smoking, No Pets, Thank You.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My wife and I are both in the creative fields. I manage the design and development of new products (ie. housewares, consumer electronics) and my wife is a practicing artist based in New York City. We have two kids who enjoy coming to the lake on weekends, holidays and summer. The lakehouse is a retreat for us all, and we couldn't live in the city without it.

Why the Owner Chose Shehawken Lake:
I'm an avid fly fisherman and have been coming to the area for many years. We spent about 2 years looking for the right house in the right location, and found this spot in the dead of winter, and immediately knew it was a gem. The broker said that if we liked it in the middle of a blizzard, we'd love it during the summer . . .

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This part of rural PA is special, because it's like time stops out here. Renters always ask us for a list of local attractions, but we find that almost all of the people who come to the lake barely leave the comforts of the house and lakefront. Come see for yourself.
