Lackawaxen PA: Where Two Rivers MeetSettled in a valley in Upper Delaware Region, the sleepy village of Lackawaxen PA is found where the Delaware and Lackawaxen Rivers come together.  In fact, “Lackawaxen,” is a Lenape name meaning “The Place where Two Rivers Meet”.  Leni-Lenape and Seneca tribes used the land along these two rivers for hunting and trading. Afterward, the first Europeans arrived and settled the area in 1770.During the 1800s, this Pike County town bustled with activity.

I'm very excited to announce that I'm going to be partnering with Santos Rolon and listing G. Anderson Homes in Masthope - these beautiful homes are the most popular new construction homes being built in Masthope. That's appropriate, because Masthope is probably one of the most popular home owner communities in all of Wayne and Pike County, due to the four-season appeal, especially skiing in the winter and motorboating in the summer...and hiking and horseback riding anytime in between! G. Anderson Homes are distinctive and stand out from the crowd - they feature luxury options as STANDARD whereas the competition considers them an upgrade.  You will not find a more graceful or stunningly beautiful home than G Anderson Homes. Offering a wide variety of styles and floorplans, G Anderson Ho...

Previously, I wrote a blog article on Lackawaxen - a quiet and secluded area in Pike County, by the Delaware and Lackawaxen Rivers. Similar villages nearby are Rowland, Shohola, and Greeley. Lackawaxen and the surrounding area has a lot of appeal for those wanting to "get away", with a bit of rustic mountain charm of days gone by. Fishing and hunting enthusiasts find the areas around Lackawaxen to be a paradise. There are several homeowner communities in Lackawaxen - two of the more popular ones are Fawn Lake Forest and Masthope. Both of these developments are built up around Lake Westcolang, a 250-acre lake that allows jet-skis and powerboats for lots of summer fun.Two additional developments are Riverview Acres and Bear Ridge Estates. These are more quiet and low-key than Fawn Lake Fo...
