Biking, canoeing, rafting in the warmer months, snowshoeing, hiking, and bird watching in the cooler months...and no matter what time of year, eating, drinking, and napping by the wood stove is encouraged! Nine River Road is a chance to experience some outdoor activities while also immediately dropping you into a classic small town American lifestyle from the moment you arrive. The property’s back yard leads you down a path to the edge of the Delaware and the front door leads you to the sidewalk that takes you to Main Street where there are restaurants, bars, a cheese shop, a movie theatre, art galleries, antique and thrift stores, outdoor stores, canoeing and rafting outfitters and a bustling farmer’s markets on Sundays year-round.
In addition to those things available in your backyard or your doorstep, Sullivan County offers a wealth of activities to choose from and the Nine River team can help you craft the perfect itinerary for your weekend away.
- Bicycle down River Road (and beyond!) with our house bikes, free of charge for guests. Nine River Road is the perfect base to explore by pedal!
