Property description

In the mornings and evenings, you can often see deer or bear eating apples from a tree in the meadow below. The property features a small pond and large flat meadow between the house and river. Enjoy some moderate walking, hiking, mountain climbing, biking, or try renting a kayak or canoe locally and take a river trip. The area also offers horseback riding, eateries, golf courses, tennis courts, and shopping. The house features granite counter tops, hardwood bamboo floors, tiled bath, and wraparound porch. Master bath features a stand-alone shower, deep tub, and his-and-hers sinks; master bedroom features a private balcony with views of the Delaware River.

Car: Necessary

This property is located on the West Branch of the Delaware River about 1/2 mile from the village of Hancock. The Delaware River has some of the best trout fishing East of the Mississippi. The property is perched on the side of Point Mountatin and features 36 acres of peace and quiet with private river access, a pond, several walking/ hiking trails, outstanding water views, and plenty of opportunity to 'get away.' If you want to do some moderate mountain hiking you are more than welcome to get off the trails and climb Point Mountain during your stay. The area also has excellent places to launch and rent kayaks or canoes for river trips or opportunities to contract with a guide for a fishing venture. If you like golf, this is a great place to be! We feature two golf courses in the immediate area: one in the village of Hancock (the Hancock Golf Course) and also the French Woods Golf Course about 12 miles away. Finally, I recommend dining out at either the Starlight Inn, located just down the road in Starlight, PA or the Hancock House located right in town. Both offer bar services.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I grew up on this property and lived in a house nearby (my parents still reside there). This house was originally owned by my grandparents, who bought the land in 1972. This house was an old cottage then. After several years of renovating, it became their dream home... What I think lured them to this hamlet was the outstanding soil for farming, the mountain feel of the house, and the Delaware river flowing in the front yard! I fully renovated the house in 2010 expecting to use it as my primary home. I expected to get my own little piece of paradise. However, as often happens, life reminded me that it is not so simple - jobs fell through and I ended up living somewhere else. In short I needed a Plan B - that is where VRBO came in. I hope whoever stays here gets as much joy out of the property and the house as I have over the years. It is truly a gift!

Why the Owner Chose Hancock:
This property is truly wonderful for those that love the natural world. You can hear the birds sing in the morning, the crickets at night, see deer in the front yard and hear the river moving in the distance. Enjoy it by mountain bike, taking a walk through the meadow, sitting on the porch, standing by the river with a fishing pole, or grabbing a canoe and do a river trip. This is truly a place where you feel like you are away from it all. This is an outstanding area for families, couples, or individuals to enjoy a quiet getaway.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property offers private river access, spacious accommodations, a nearby pond, private walking and hiking trails - a great place to be active or enjoy a few days grilling and reading on the large deck outside overlooking the river! Nearby attractions: Golf, dining, movie theater, and live theater in Hancock (theater is seasonal).
