Things to do during "cabin time" in Delhi
Delhi NY Cabin Rentals Near the Catskills The village of Delhi (population 5,117) is located in east-central Delaware County and is home to the State University of New York at Delhi. The town’s quaint size, coupled with the college-town atmosphere, combines to create a unique place identity that celebrates community and culture, all settled between trees and valleys against the region’s vast and rolling countryside. Delhi, NY covers an area of 65 scenic square miles, with country roads that meander along pastoral horizons, perfect for a leisurely evening drive.
Guests enjoying time away in the cultivated visitor accommodations in Delhi — the quaint cabins, cozy cottages and stately vacation homes of New York state — will love the quietude of this place, with its historic buildings and home-town hospitality. Among its historical landmarks, Delhi counts the old Christian Church and the Fitches Covered Bridge to the east and the Presbyterian Church, Manse and Cemetery to the west. These storied buildings and grounds are all listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Other notable landmarks in Delhi include the Delaware County Courthouse and the Gideon Frisbee House, home to the county’s historical association.
Delhi is the setting of the classic 1959 novel by Jean Craighead George titled My Side of the Mountain — visitors may want to bring their own dog-eared copy (or obtain a new favorite at a local book store) and spend a crisp Delhi day cuddled by the fireplace in a rented cabin or venture out from your cottage door and take a walk along the riverside, book in hand, to discover the stories of Delhi and its geography simultaneously. Delhi is traversed by the West Branch Delaware River, stretching for nearly 90 miles through the Catskill Mountain region. The river is a known fly-fishing hot spot, with a natural population of trout that love its cool, rushing waters.
Guests making their home away from home in a Delhi vacation rental can also pay a visit to the Civil War Soldiers Monument on Courthouse Square or plan a tour of the Sherwood Family Estate, with its original buildings and working farm. Delhi is an especially beautiful spot for a destination wedding, with plentiful lodgings and accommodations for large groups and no shortage of photogenic back drops. Maple Shade Farm is a unique Catskills venue for such events, with a repurposed barn that creates the perfect shabby chic ambiance. If it’s a serene retreat you seek — or if history and hygge are your mood — Delhi, New York is the place for you.
