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 space
This cottage offers a couple’s 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 snow shoeing 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 wood and kindling you'll need.

Covid-19 Update:

Our town required all short term rentals to stop accepting reservations until after June 1, 2020 and we followed those requirements. On June 12th the Governor changed our county from the "Yellow" phase to the "Green" phase. The green phase means bars, restaurants, personal care services—including hair salons and barbershops—gyms and indoor recreation facilities, malls and entertainment venues will all be allowed to open at 50 percent capacity.

We have always placed importance on doing a thorough cleaning of the cottage between each guest’s arrival. These have and continue to include steam-cleaning all floors, washing all bedding/linens/towels, clean/disinfect bathroom/kitchen, clean all moldings/baseboard/window sills, dust/polish all furniture, and make sure all kitchen utensils/appliances/dishes/glasses are clean and in order.

In light of the Covid-19 virus, we’re committed to follow cleaning procedures published by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as recommendations made to hosts by Airbnb. These including disinfecting and paying special attention to frequently touched surfaces, like light switches, doorknobs, remote controls, and faucet handles. Depending on the surface being cleaned, we use alcohol, Lysol, hydrogen peroxide, and/or bleach for disinfecting.

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.

The cottage has Wi-Fi.

The single bedroom is fitted with a queen bed and has room darkening shades. The cottage has a fully-equipped kitchen with washer/dryer, Keurig K-Cup, drip and French Press coffee makers as well as a 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.
