Car: Necessary

Pond Eddy is about 2.25 hours from New York City and is accessible by train or bus. However, it's ideal to have a car for getting around the area as public transportation is scarce.

The house is one block from the Delaware River, and the surrounding area is breathtaking. You can swim, canoe and tube down the river in warm weather. You'll want to check out the quaint, scenic surrounding towns with farmer's markets, antique shops, etc.

Monguap, NY (about 5 miles south on 97) has gorgeous hiking and historical cemeteries. Barryville (8 miles north on 97) has a farmer's market on Saturdays from 10-1. Callicoon (about an hour north on 97) has a farmer's market on Sunday mornings, which is more extensive than the one in Barryville. Narrowsburg is small, but lovely town in the area. My husband and I love having dinner at The Heron in Narrowsburg. They have an unadvertised patio in the back that faces the Delaware River. Go there for dinner at sunset.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I'm an independent business developer based in the Hamptons. I grew up in the Midwest, so my Pond Eddy country house is full of quaint and cozy amenities.

Why the Owner Chose Pond Eddy:
I spent weekends for seven wonderful years at my upstate country home, which I completely gutted & renovated. Now, because of my work schedule, I'm unable to be there as often as I'd like to be, so I've decided to open up my home and share its warmth.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
This beautiful country house is located two hours from NYC. The house is on a quiet dead-end street, and the property is very private and backs onto woods - all located a block from the incredible Delaware River. The Delaware River Valley is amazing. In the summer you’ll stroll down to the river and go swimming, tubing and canoeing. Local river towns- Barryville, Narrowsburg and Milford, PA offer restaurants, great antiquing, farmer’s markets and you’re 1/2 hour to Bethel Woods for world-class outdoor concerts and The Woodstock Museum. There are many local trails for hiking, picnicking and cross country skiing in winter. A wonderful feature of the House is the open floor-plan. All of the first floor rooms open into each other creating a great place to entertain or just hang out with family and friends. There is also a full bath on this level. There are three comfortable bedrooms upstairs. One bedroom is furnished with a full bed, one bedroom has two twin beds, and The huge master bedroom has a queen sized bed. In addition, the downstairs den is furnished with a pull-out couch that sleeps two. A stroll down the hill brings you to the stunning Delaware River, an amazing oasis. The river is dotted with quaint towns to enjoy. All just two hours from Manhattan.
