"If you are looking for the perfect getaway with family, this is the home for you! We started our search looking for a cabin on the water that was accessible for my mother-in-law. After many hours searching we came across Joan's larger property in Upper Black Eddy. We contacted Joan and she quickly returned our information request. She was able to offer us this home for the dates we wanted to travel. It was the perfect size for our needs and the location and amenities provided were exactly what we were looking for. The home has an elevator, a handicap accessible bathroom, and is directly on the Delaware River. Once my sons (10 & 16) figured out how to read the provided hand-drawn map, which was in itself quite the adventure for them, they were rewarded with riding the provided bikes on the tow path to Homestead for ice cream and giant chocolate chip cookies. It was great to see them enjoying each other's company without computers and handheld devices connecting them! We also loved having access to two kayaks and a canoe which my husband used to float along the river for hours testing his luck at catching fish. When my in-laws weren't feeling up to joining in on the river fun, they were able to sit inside or on the main deck. If you are traveling with older family members, they can be comfortable and not feel left out. They could still watch us on the river & take in the beautiful water, trees, & birds. For me, the highlight was sitting around the fire pit making s'mores. Everyone got to test out their cooking skills and decide who roasted the most perfect marshmallow. The kitchen was beautiful. I have never stayed in a rental home that was as impeccably equipped. You only need to bring the food you want to cook and everything else is already there for you. Leave the towels, soaps, detergents, spices, etc...all at home and just bring yourselves. We were only able to stay for a short trip, but we would definitely book this home again and recommend it to our family and friends. It is a perfect place to unwind, disconnect, and delight in having everyone under the same roof together. Thank you Joan!"
