Welcome to Riverbend.


This newly renovated vacation rental unit in the town of Hancock, New York, on the banks of the Delaware River is the downstairs apartment in a two family home. (We occasionally use the upstairs apartment.) This spacious 2 bedroom dwelling is on the East Branch of the Delaware river. Walk out the back door and down the expansive back lawn to enjoy the sound of the river as it flows past. River access for drift boats is nearby.

Come stay with us and enjoy all that the Delaware River and the sleepy town of Hancock have to offer!

It’s easy to get away for a weekend in the Western Catskills! Here are some estimated driving times:

3 Hours to: New Haven, Connecticut  or Rochester, NY.

Getting Started: a map and introductory visitor’s guide from the Upper Delaware Council that you can download.  Check out this map.  If you are traveling between Hancock and NY City, and you have the time, take the *extra* scenic route – Port Jervis to Hancock on route 97 through the Upper Delaware National Park. 

Maybe you’re coming to this area for an event or a visit.  Here’s the distance to some local destinations from the house:

More About the House

This home has two bedrooms, each with queen beds, as well as a couch in the living room that pulls out to a queen sleeper. There is a single full bath.

This home is situated in a small neighborhood right on the water. From the front door, you can walk to restaurants, the grocery store, the post office and a drug store. If you prefer, you can park your car when you arrive, and not use it again until you leave.

Well behaved pets will enjoy the fenced in backyard area. You will enjoy the kitchen stocked with everything you need to prepare a simple breakfast or a full meal – you just provide the food!

If you are looking to stay in Hancock, NY and enjoy the Delaware River, this might be the place for you. If local hotels are booked, or maybe you are looking for something with the same kind of village-like feel as those comfortable establishments, but that accommodates more people, or accepts pets, or has a full kitchen, or has direct views overlooking the river, then Riverbend may be for you.  (If you are looking for a remote country setting, set apart from civilization, this setting may not meet your needs. This neighborhood is quiet and peaceful most of the time – only disturbed by the honking of the geese as they fly along the river.  On holiday weekends, it bustles with activity, as families come to enjoy summer weekends on the river!)
