Come relax in quaint Portland, Pennsylvania—minutes from the Appalachian Trail and directly overlooking the Delaware River. This historic home has been thoughtfully restored by NYC-based creatives for a retreat from hectic city life.
Unplug and decompress in this stately little home that dates back to 1850. Located just off Interstate 80 (90 minutes to NYC), this charming red brick house has 3 bedrooms equipped with full-sized beds, comfy linens, exposed beams and original wide-plank flooring. Collectors at heart, we outfitted the house with many pieces salvaged from homes of the mid-late 1800s, while adding some modern conveniences (including a Sonos sound system in the living room and Chromecast in the den!). Relax in our white-washed bathroom with antique claw foot tub and pedestal sink. Cook a simple meal in our kitchen with farmhouse sink. Read a book on our chesterfield sofa. Sip some whisky in the backyard around a campfire or warm up inside by the wood stove. Our first home has brought us so much joy, we wanted to share it.
5 miles to Delaware Water Gap and Appalachian Trail, near Camelback Ski/ Camel Beach, 10 minutes to Shawnee, 20 minutes to Crossings Outlet and a short walk to general store, mini mart, post office, chocolate shop, antique store and thrift shop. We're located directly in front of the Delaware River in downtown Portland.
There is WIFI/internet, and we just installed a TV with Chromecast for easy Netflix and HBO viewing (if you have those accounts). This is an old house that sings (you may hear occasional window creeks and radiator clangs) but we promise it's full of happy songs.
