About the property

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.

Peace and comfort!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Wagner Hill Guest Cottage for 5 days. Very easy to find with GPS. Tom and Merry are super nice and not at all intrusive, but available for questions and recommendations to places to visit. The cottage is beautiful and well equipped. The hiking trails on the property are pristine. Deer come right up to the meadows. Saw lots of wild turkeys, too! Callicoon, NY is a fun place to visit. The hippie mentality is alive and well. Lots of lakes and kayaking on the Delaware was fun and easy to get to. Looking forward to our next visit!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This entire trip was incredible. The cottage was absolutely perfect. Merry was such a lovely and thoughtful host. From leaving a lantern on at the entrance to guide us to the cottage in the dark, greeting us with champagne and brownies, to being receptive and responsive whenever we had any questions. She truly thought of everything! We absolutely loved this place and are excited to visit again.

The most relaxing time!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was quaint, quiet and clean. Merry and Tom had brownies and a bottle of champagne waiting for us upon arrival and were completely fine and accommodating with our late arrival (10:30 pm). It was the best New Years my boyfriend and I have had in recent years. The town about six miles away is cute and charming and we’d strongly recommend the brewery. We will definitely look to stay here again!

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Honestly, Merry really does it all for you on this cozy cottage! The decorations are gorgeous, the fireplace is delightful and you’re providied with plenty of wood to keep the fire going! The bed was very comfy and there were plenty of extra pillows and blankets! On top of all that, dogs are allowed and there is plenty of land and trails to explore! Loved my stay and I hope I can come back!

Birthday AND Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We had much to celebrate as it was Carol's birthday and we decided to get married just before our trip to Wagner Hill Cottage. What a wonderful surprise to find the most comfortable cottage that we have ever stayed in upon our arrival. We were greeted by Tom and Merry and a bottle of champagne and some chilled glasses in the refrigerator. Apparently these very kind folks think of just about everything.

We loved the homey feel of this cottage and the great sunlight provided by ample windows even on a grey December day. We also enjoyed the outdoor fire place and watching a lovely sunset on the Winter Solstice.

We are very thankful to have found this place and we will return. Many thanks to Tom and Merry for making our stay so memorable.

Amazing hidden getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in this perfect little cottage. It is a beautiful and cozy place to spend a weekend getaway. Merry & Tom were very helpful and great hosts! If you have time, check out Cafe Adella Dori in Callicoon. It is such a pretty little town! We would definitely return for another visit at Wagner Hill.
