A historic property with timeless elegance, Sylvan Ridge Farm is nestled into a wooded mountainside with sweeping views of the Delaware River Valley. The fully renovated farmhouse and cottage date to the mid-1800s. Guests enjoy total solitude on the secluded acreage, yet the farm is only 10 minutes away from Interstate 84, historic Milford, PA, and Port Jervis, NY, with easy New York City access via train, bus, or car (90 min. to the George Washington Bridge/Lincoln Tunnel).

The space
The farmhouse has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, four stone fireplaces, a fully equipped kitchen, numerous common spaces (one of which converts to an accessible fifth bedroom), and a wraparound porch. Nearly every room enjoys panoramic mountain & forest views. The cottage has a loft suite, 1.5 bathrooms, a kitchenette, a living room with an electric fireplace and a sofa bed, and a small patio. Immediately outside these lodgings lie the 20,000 gallon in-ground pool (open May-September), 6-person hot tub (open year-round), and fire ring, each overlooking the view of the Delaware River Valley and Kittatinny Mountains beyond. Surrounding this homestead are 193 acres of privately owned, forested mountainside. Guests enjoy exclusive access to this pristine woodland, complete with three marked trails of varying difficulty that beckon to hikers, mountain bikers, hunters, birdwatchers, and nature lovers of all kinds!

Guest access
Guests enjoy exclusive access to the entire farmhouse and cottage, the pool, hot tub, grounds, and the 193 acres of private forest surrounding the farm. Access to the event barn, which sits 100 feet or so away from the house, is NOT included in vacation rentals. Please note minor finish carpentry & similar work may take place in/around the barn during work hours on weekdays.

We (Alec and Linnea) are the only "neighbors." Our home is a 10-minute hike/2 minute drive up the hill. You might bump into us with our son and/or dogs out for a hike!

Other things to note
We strictly enforce our 15-guest maximum. Parties and events with non-overnight guests are not allowed under any circumstances.

Well-mannered, adult dogs are welcome. Sorry, no cats. For other pets, please inquire and we will consider on a case-by-case basis.

There is a nearly completed event barn across the lawn from the farmhouse. Please note finish carpentry may take place in the barn during work hours on weekdays over the winter, with mid-sized vehicles arriving in the morning and leaving in the afternoon. We do ask that our farmhouse & cottage guests appreciate the barn from a distance (if you'd like a tour during your stay we're more than happy to show you around).

To be clear, we are NOT hosting events in the barn and we do NOT double-book the property!

Location

Milford, Pennsylvania, United States

The region has plenty to offer in any season: gorgeous fall colors, cross-country & downhill skiing, spectacular spring blooms, and summer farmers' markets & events. There are also nearby options for river trips, fishing, golf, CrossFit, yoga, and seasonal fruit picking.

Our property is totally secluded, without a neighbor in sight, and our guests can hide away from the world to their hearts' content. Should you wish to venture out, however, the surrounding area has much to offer in terms of both culture and nature. Closest to home, the 3,000-acre Stairway Wild Area is just a few minutes up the road and includes a nice network of marked trails and a serene, fishable lake. Once you've had your fill of nature (or if you're looking for more), heading down Cummins Hill Road will quickly bring you back to civilization! 

Sylvan Ridge Farm lies between Milford, PA and Port Jervis, NY, each a 10-minute drive away. Both towns have grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping. Milford in particular is a historic destination town with the perfect mix of charm and class. It also borders the north end of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, a 70,000-acre protected area that contains 40 miles of the Delaware River, nine impressive waterfalls, and roughly 150 miles of trails maintained by the National Park Service. For its part, the Port Jervis Watershed is a first-class mountain biking locale with 50 miles of trails. As longtime locals, owners Alec and Linnea Geno will happily share their recommendations and help you plan any outings.
