History: The Cadosia Schoolhouse is a three storey brick structure built in the 1920's, containing all the original woodwork. This was the second schoolhouse on this property, the first one was built in 1867. Purchased in 2001 in derelict condition the house has been extensively restored single handedly by the owner and is heated almost exclusively with wood . The Hancock area was once a popular vacation destination and many traces of the O&W railway can be found in the area largely unchanged since that time The garden has a fence around the front and north side and we are dog friendly.We have streams running on both our South and West sides, meeting in front of our SW corner and running half a mile down to the Delaware River where one can enjoy fishing, canoeing or kayaking and swimming all summer long.

Activities: .The Delaware River is famous for it fly fishing and we have had groups from as far away as Canada stay at the house We have a library of books and vinyl records, also Cd's and Cassette tapes. We are in a shallow valley, with nice hikes in the hills surrounding us. Wildlife is abundant in our area, which is famous for the eagles and hawks which nest nearby. . The Cannonsville reservoir has been opened to boaters and a permit is easily obtained on line for fishing or recreational boating

Area: The surrounding area is full of beautiful scenery and charmingly remote roads , cute little towns for antiquing and thrift shopping, golf courses and restaurants and other historic sites.

Amazing Place For Music Lovers

Nick and Jaimie were incredibly generous hosts, and this schoolhouse is really something special. My friends and I used the music studio every day, which has some really insane and great-sounding gear, and had a lot of fun poring through the huge record collection in the TV room, listening to everything from King Crimson to NIN to Mozart. We sat ar... Read More

Lots of fun and character at a great location!

I was one of 11 people on our trip and there was plenty of room for all of us! The house was great and had lots of charm from records to a music room to a lofted bed.

Comfortable and inviting

The owners, Nick and Jaimie, were SO friendly. Jaimie stayed in the bunker in the basement during my stay and was always around when I had questions. It appears that they are constantly updating the house and I am excited to see it again in the future.
