About Emily and Stephen Cahnmann

Based in NYC the Cahnmann's wanted to have a rural escape that was not too far from the City. This property is 100 miles door to door for them and they frequent it often and also their log cabin up the road.

Emily and Stephen Cahnmann purchased this house in 2015

Why Emily and Stephen Cahnmann chose Pond Eddy

We love this area because of the access to the Delaware River and he lovely mountain views. It's extremely private on the mountainside (you may not see more than one car pass by a day along the gravel road). It's located very close to NYC and also other ski resorts, golf resorts, concert halls, restaurants etc... Just listen to the sound of the birds............beautiful!! You might even see an American Bald Eagle!!

What makes this house unique

Private, NEW, modern, artwork, internet TV, Sonos sound system, Roku internet TV, gas grill, extra big deck, sleeps 8, over-sized main floor deck and an additional roof deck with great views, close to Delaware River.

Spacious and Cozy All in One!

  • 5 of 5

We were blessed to stay at this getaway as part of a spiritual retreat weekend. We were five singles (at least for the weekend), and each of us had a private sleeping space to ourselves. Set deep in the woods, the views out the many windows dropped our blood pressure by the minute, and the ample furnishings gave everyone a comfortable place to nestle. Emily was an incredibly gracious host who ensured that everything we needed was in place before we arrived. Although we were there to disconnect from technology, there was easy access to wifi and multiple viewing options on television had we wanted to turn them on. Space for at least 10 without feeling cramped at all. Well equipped kitchen complete with huge refrigerator and cold well water that puts Poland Spring to shame. All in all, a tremendous getaway regardless of your motive. Perfect place to crash after time on the slopes or in the Delaware just down the hill. Or if you just want to get away from it all to an incredibly, wonderfully QUIET place, this is the one. Hope to stay here again someday!

Great house overall!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 (2 families) had a great time at this house. It was beautiful, brand new looking, and very clean. It has everything you need from the stocked kitchen and bathrooms to games for the whole family. The outside decks were my favorite part of the house, as it was so nice to sit and drink coffee out in nature while the kids ran around and played. The owners were extremely responsive and made this stay a great experience for us. We'd highly recommend this property.

Amazing getaway!

We just loved this house so much! From the isolation to the beautiful decks to the fire pit, we could not have had a greater time in a greater home. Thanks for being such a great host Emily!

Beautiful home ! Great owners.

  • 5 of 5

Pros: beautiful home with open layout. Friendly owners who are very helpful. Isolated. Large space. 2 decks. Has grill and fire pit. Close to ski resort. All the utensils you'll need.

Cons: only cell phone coverage is Verizon. Careful if there is a power outage, generator works for electricity, but you may not have internet.

It worked out well for us, we spent less screen time and more face to face time with our family.

Would definitely go again.

Amazing Cabin, Wonderful Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was just as advertised. Great condition, clean, tons of light and windows, awesome roof deck to view the stars, fire pit, fire place, new and great furniture, you name it.

What made our stay even better was the hospitality, friendliness and helpfulness of the gracious hosts. They were warm and hospitable and I would highly recommend staying at this cabin if you plan on visiting the Catskills.

It really is a beautiful cabin, and the fact that the hosts are good people makes it that much more of a must-stay.

Have fun!

Great home nestled into the wooded hills

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I have stayed in this home now three times, and we'll definitely be back. The accommodations in it are spectacular.

The place is located in a wooded area very near the Delaware River. It's the perfect distance from "town," in that you can get to/from it very easily. But it is sufficiently in the woods that you feel like you're really escaping. (We come from NYC.)

The house itself is really comfy. There's an awesome loft bedroom that feels like a throwback to simpler times. The kitchen is just the right size, and it has all the "creature comforts" you could hope for.

Emily, the host, is really helpful and communicative - even when we have a million questions.

As I said, we've stayed there three times and I am sure we'll do so again!
