Susan's pleasent pheasant farm was very friendly and accommodating. The kayak rentals were reasonable and for as long as we wanted. Beautiful area and wildlife down the river. Would love to explore again!

Susan and Jim were just wonderful people and their B&B was beautiful, clean, & amazing. I'm grateful that they share this B&B experience with others. Lake- It sits right on the Wawaka Lake which is feed by the East Branch Delaware River. The lake is very calm and was easy for beginner Kayakers like us. We paddled slowly in the early morning, not make much noise and we saw tons of wildlife. During the day, they rent out the kayaks to others, so you share the lake from 9-5, but outside of the times, the lake is yours. That was the biggest selling point to us. Not too many places that offer kayaking on a private lake. Room- The huge picture windows of our room, held views of the lake and we sat outside in the evening drinking wine, just watching the wildlife in the lake. We saw Blue Heron & Kingfisher birds fishing the evening away and while Kayaking we saw beavers going into their dam. Food- Susan cooked up a refreshing breakfast, with local fruits & buckwheat pancakes, she is truly an amazing chef! She will ask you if you have any dietary restrictions, so don't worry about that. Hiking Trails- Trails looked awesome, and there is even a swimming hole.We didn't get to go far because it started raining, but looked great. Saw a spotted fawn and momma deer. Next time I hope we can do more hiking, Jim had the lawns cut to perfection for well groomed hiking. I guess it goes way back on the property. I would say bring bug spray if you plan on doing that. Bike Rentals- You can also ride antique bikes around the area, which felt like a scene from an old movie. I can't explain it but just seemed like a historic little town. The whole experience blew away my expectations and it was the true meaning of peace and relaxation! The price of the B&B stay includes, overnight stay, breakfast and all rentals free.

Visited just for the day. Amazing. Susan and her husband were so kind to us. Spent the day kayaking, paddle boarding and swimming in the river running down the mountain. Our ages are 59, 31 and 12. All enjoyed it so much. The walks have been set up and marked according to difficulty. On the walk we chose we arrived at a beautiful spot, with table and chairs provided. Will definitely go again when we are next in New York.

We had a great time. The property is beautiful and the breakfast was delicious and served in a lovely setting- outside next to a waterfall. We used the stand up paddle boards, bikes, hiking trails and swimming hole. I would recommend visiting Susan's Pleasant Pheasant Farm!
