Lackawaxen, meaning swift waters, is located 2 hours east of NYC (2 1/2 hours north of Philly) on the Upper Delaware River – 73 miles (118 km) of unspoiled natural beauty dividing the New York Catskills from the Pennsylvania Pocono Mountains. Our prime riverfront location may be the best in the river valley. Song birds, water tumbling through rapids, and the effortless flow of the river create a harmony that encourages relaxation.
A perfect place to reconnect
Relax on our front porch overlooking the water as paddlers float by. Walk across the oldest suspension bridge in the country. Lackawaxen is the site of Roebling’s 1848 Delaware Aqueduct, our namesake and forerunner of his later work–the Brooklyn Bridge!
Fly-fishing, hiking, horseback-riding, antiquing, golf, as well as, fine local restaurants, summer theater and the arts are here for your enjoyment.
We provide immaculate, comfortable lodging in an authentic 1870 landmark, listed on the National Historic Register. There are 5 guestrooms and a 1-bedroom cottage, all with private bath, tv, a/c, and wi-fi. The common sitting room, both riverview guestrooms and the cottage have a cozy gas fireplace.
The Delaware River
This section is the absolute BEST for canoeing, rafting, kayaking and tubing. We are located 1 mile from Kittatinny’s Barryville base, featuring paintball and dual racing ziplines. Lackawaxen, where the Delaware and Lackawaxen Rivers join, has some of the best trout and bass fishing in the eastern United States. Fish from shore or hire a drift boat guide service.
Seeing a bald eagle in the wild is something special! Year-round, this is the best B&B in the Poconos to see a bald eagle.
Trout and Bass Fishing
The Lackawaxen River is stocked with thousands of trout annually and is a picture-perfect river for fly or bait fishermen. The Upper Delaware River is known for shad in May, smallmouth bass from June through October, and trout as well. You can fish off our riverbank with a NY or PA fishing license. Licensed guides with drift boats are also available for half or full day trips. Smallmouth Bass fall season too–excellent!
Enjoy the Area
Bethel Woods, the Woodstock Museum, and the Route 97 Upper Delaware Scenic ByWay are across the river. The towns of Milford, Hawley and Honesdale are an easy drive.
We cordially welcome you to visit this Pocono spot, settle in, and absorb the history and beauty of the Delaware River Highlands. Only 100 miles northwest of NYC, slightly off the beaten path, and a refreshing escape from urban stress. New York Magazine called it “weekend therapy”!
We love it here and look forward to showing you all the area has to offer!
