Sylvania Tree Farm - Lackawaxen, PA

Guest Cottage or Cabin

Emphasizing privacy, seclusion and service, Sylvania Tree Farm is a twelve-hundred acre family-owned estate along the Upper Delaware River. Ideal for those looking for a luxury four-season cabin in a rustic setting. Relax and enjoy the outdoors from the porch hammock, in front of your fireplace or soaking in your own hot tub. Every-season outdoor enthusiasts enjoy activities from fly fishing on our two miles of trout stream, swimming in the Delaware River, winter snow-shoeing and hiking on our miles of marked trails. During the warmer months, tent camping with facilities is available in an uncrowded area along the river. The tree farm is dedicated to providing memorable experiences for its guests who return year after year.

Eco-Friendly Notes

Sylvania Tree Farm, in its 25 year history, has been actively eco-friendly from the construction of the buildings to the maintenance of the cabins.

The cabins, when possible, were built from the timber here on the tree farm. Pine, milled locally, was used for our cabin floors. Fireplaces and stone walls were built from bluestone hand-picked from our quarries.

In warmer months, quilts and linens are hung out to dry in the sun. There's nothing like the smell of sun-dried linen!

The tree farm also manages an organic vegetable and herb garden for its guests to enjoy.

Kitchen Supplies Available (if any)

Fully-equipped kitchens provide all items for preparing, serving and cleaning.

Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes

Sylvania Tree Farm surrounds the old village of Mast Hope on the Delaware River. This area is rich in history, legends and natural beauty. The property is privately owned by the McKay family, descendants of the original owners, David and Gertrude Selden, who settled here and developed the village in 1848. Today, the old village of Mast Hope can be described as a "town time forgot".

It was the Erie Railroad that was the impetus that led David Selden to purchase the property in and around Mast Hope. At that time, the Seldens built a forty-room manor house adjacent to the Mast Hope Train Station. The Selden manor operated as a hotel into the late 19th century.

Today the McKay family carries on the tradition of hospitality; accommodating and providing a sylvan retreat for its guests.
