Photos and Description of this Damascus holiday cottage

1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Paradise Found - Wagner Hill Cottage is a welcoming private retreat. The house was designed after an English cottage. Built with local wood and stone, it feels organic and natural. The cottage is located on 40 private acres of woods and open fields.

The cottage offers a couple’s private getaway with a clean, contemporary interior and total privacy. The 40 acre property includes 4 large fields separated by 20 acres of woods. Numerous trails offer relaxing walks as well as snowshoeing in the winter. The side patio includes a stone exterior fireplace which is perfect for evening fires. A fully-stocked woodshed off the patio has all the firewood and kindling you'll need.

The single bedroom is fitted with a queen bed. The cottage has a fully-equipped kitchen with washer/dryer, microwave and dishwasher. There is a dining area, a living room with a wood stove, an outside gas grill, and a large outdoor shower. The 6’X 6’ outdoor shower is all wood construction and has shelves and wooden hooks. The bathroom has an inside shower equipped with 3 shower heads including a rain head.

The entire cottage is available for guest use along with 40 private acres of fields, woods, and trails.

During Spring of 2016 the United States National Park Service added Wagner Hill Cottage to their list of lodging facilities for the Upper Delaware Scenic & Recreational River.

There is also wireless Wi-Fi service.

We live in a separate house on the property and are available if needed. If you need help starting a wood fire in either the outside fireplace or the interior wood stove, we're here.

Other Things to Note: The kitchen includes dishes, glassware, utensils, pots, pans, coffee maker, toaster oven, refrigerator with ice maker, as well as standard appliances. The patio has a gas grill and there is a window air conditioner.

Well behaved pets are allowed if you purchase the Property Damage Protection insurance through HomeAway at the time of booking.

Check-in time - 3:00 PM

Check-out time - 12:00 PM (Noon)

We hope our guests treat the cottage as if it was their own. The cottage is a smoke free environment. Additionally:

1. If you turn the heat up, please turn it back down to 50 when you leave

2. If you use the gas grill, please turn the gas off when you’re finished.

3. Please lock all doors when you leave the house.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a weekend destination for my husband's birthday within comfortable driving distance from our home in Northern Virginia and, preferably, near the Poconos. We have used VRBO many times over the years and always have had a great experience - this one was no different! Our hosts, Merry and Tom Wagner, were so welcoming and helpful - even had brownies with a candle for my husband and a lovely bottle of wine to share. The fall colors were in brilliant display and we had a hunter's full moon during the evening. The cottage was well-appointed and the wood stove and outdoor fireplace were terrific for the chill in the evenings. We visited nearby Callicoon, NY and dined at the Western Hotel one evening. The Callicoon Brewery next door had really good local beer and the food was equally pleasing. Woodstock is a short drive away and well-worth a visit. We did a little hiking on the 40 acres of this beautiful property and enjoyed being "off the grid" during our wonderful weekend - highly recommend!

Relaxing Haven

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage to celebrate our 28th anniversary and enjoyed every moment. Tom and Merry were so welcoming when we arrived. They showed us around the cottage, which was big enough for the two of us. Our first night there we devoured the small plate of brownies and a bottle of wine, which they left for us. Every night we sat in front of a cozy fire at the outdoor fireplace. Walked on the many hiking trails on the property - which was a great after-dinner workout. My husband also enjoyed taking a shower in the outdoor shower. If you need to unwind and reset yourself, come to this cottage. You will not regret it.

Fantastic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I absolutely loved the guest cottage and look forward to renting it again in the future. The 3 miles of trails on the property provided great places to explore and walk our dog. Each evening we were able to enjoy fires at the outdoor fireplace (aided by Tom's great preparation) where we made s'mores. Upon arrival we were greeted by Merry who gave us a quick tour. We also found brownies and wine in the fridge! She also included a handmade ornament.

We found this cottage to be quaint yet modern and very comfortable for two... Can't recommend it enough! Thank you Merry and Tom.

Cozy, comfortable, and clean Cottage House with sophisticated sense

  • 5 of 5

We came here as a refuge from the city. So clean and very sophisticated atomosphere which we can imagine how the owners' sense is by the detailed goods....highly recommended for a couple. Beautiful nature surrounded and we felt like staying at the house without having driven to the neighbors. Many thanks for letting us stay here, Mary and Tom, the owners!!
