About David and Desiree
David and Desiree grew up locally both connected to family farms and continue to raise their family and farm in Damascus. They co-own and direct several well established specialty manufacturing and related service companies associated with television, film, corporate, public spaces and museums. We both wandered this property as teenagers not together but separately. Ironically, after marriage, we had an odd opportunity to purchase this beautiful farm which was once all cornfields as we remember back when we were kids and now lush hay fields. We still walk the land reminiscing with each other how special it was for both of us back then and now. It's a special moment as you continue through the gate and come around the corner...Its hard to describe. We decided to purchase the property with dear friends of ours and constructed a magnificent custom passive solar timber frame home for them doing much of the work ourselves. Our friends since have moved out west giving us first option to keep the land intact but decided not to move into this home because our current home and stables are very special and hand crafted from a design done in high school. When we travel with our four children, we always seek accommodations that are most like home and clean. We manage, care for and clean this home ourselves as a family, with care we would want and with the goal you will never forget your stay at Waterside. Many Guests say 'that our words and pictures can't explain this place' We take great pride in the hand craftsmanship, its cleanliness and presentation. In the winter...we even try to take time to welcome you a warm glow in the fireplace upon your arrival as we do in our own home after a long day on the road.
David and Desiree purchased this House in 2005
Why David and Desiree chose Damascus
Waterside is a 'one of a kind' equisite hand crafted Passive Solar Timber Frame Log Home on gated 145 prestine acres with a mile of private Delaware River Front. Most guests cant imagine it until they arrive. Many of guests often tell us, 'your words pictures DO NOT do this home justice'. One guest figured out it was like having a home all by itself in the middle of the town of Hoboken along the river.
What makes this House unique
Comfort, amazing kitchen, massive cozy fireplace, radiant heat and warm feet, endless views, seclusion, privacy, wildlife, the fish stories, paddling home, freedom...most guests have plans but never leave the front gate after check in....

We spent two weeks (3 dogs and 2 of their “peoples”) in this great house in Pennsylvania. Tons of room, great amenities and (as important as seeing more deers and bears in two weeks than in the rest of our lives) a wonderful fenced-in back yard for the dogs to roam!
We spent lazy mornings walking the dogs on (and around) the property; great afternoons swimming in the river and fantastic evenings on the decks, watching the sun go down ...
Great house. Great location. Great hosts.
We simply can’t wait to return.
Great vacation in a super relaxing environment
We are a family of 8 (4 adults, 4 kids) and this house was perfect for us! It’s spacious, clean, serene and relaxing. The house sits on a huge piece of land bordering the Delaware River. Kids had a lot of fun kayaking, boating, and throwing stones by the river bank. Very relaxing. We loved it!
Wonderful Family time at the river
What a beautiful and relaxing property. The home is stunning from the wood interior, amazing light that enters with all the windows, the secluded location, and of course, the river. We enjoyed a wonderful 3 days with family playing on the river, kayaking, and relaxing together in the spacious home. The downstairs recreation room was also amazing and Desiree was wonderful to work with. She was there to greet us and show us around the property and very responsive to any inquiry I had. I would highly recommend this beautiful, immaculate property and look forward to returning in the future.
wonderful house on the Delaware River
This property is spacious, elegant, family-friendly and a quick walk to the most beautiful waterway that I have ever paddled!!
