In search of the Perfect Hunting Cabin in Delaware County

What a perfect day to travel around the banks of the Cannonsville Reservoir in the beautiful Catskill Mountains.

Cannonsville Reservoir

With my clients and their teenagers in tow, we embarked on an 8 hour hunting expedition throughout Upstate New York in search of the perfect hunting cabin, “the real man’s cabin”. As secluded and rustic as we could possibly find!  Starting in upper Delaware County, Davenport, NY; we hit the road… some paved, some graveled, some dirt and boulders. Yup, I miss my Jeep! Up and over mountains through the Catskills we went, making a huge loop through the state lands into Delhi, Hamden, Andes and down to Tompkins by the Cannonsville Reservoir. The Catskills hold such breathtaking beauty, the crystal clear waters of the reservoirs, lakes and streams, amazing waterfalls of all sizes and lush wooded mountains for hundreds and hundreds of miles. So peaceful and serene.


Now, keep in mind, these hills are full of back roads, including some that haven’t seen wheels on them in decades! I think we got “detoured” on several of them today in our search for the perfect  hunting cabin. We scoped out all the cabins on our list of places to see. What should have taken only a few hours took much longer than we planned. Believe me when I tell you that it takes an expert in geocaching to find these hidden gems. We searched for what seemed like forever to find one, even stopping at a nearby farm to ask a neighbor if he knew where it might be.  No luck other than some stories of cabins in the hills he once knew about. Just as we are about to give it up, I happened to stop a local driving by in his truck… with a hearty laugh he says, “You will never find it on your own!” ” Down the road a ways, by the gravel driveway, up through the hayfield” – literally – “up the hill and along the side of the hayfield driving up the grassy slope all the way to the top and turn right when you see the dual truck tracks.” Tracks made by years driving through the brush. He only knew where it was because he hays that field.

Sure enough, there it was, that rustic red cabin at the top of the hill, where the land levels out and 100+ year old trees stand tall and strong.

Shotgun shells littered the ground and photo’s of the men and their trophy 10 point bucks they took on that mountaintop were tacked on the walls.

A full 22 acres, near state lands, EXTREMELY secluded for $44,900.
