Delaware Valley Destinations: Vacation Rentals in Barryville
Although the Delaware River gets its start in the Adirondacks, the New York section of the Delaware River Valley only extends between Narrowsburg and Port Jarvis. Barryville is on the upper stretches of the Delaware River Valley, and it’s a great spot if you are thinking of renting a house to use as your home base.
What to Do: If you’ve come here from the main Delaware River Valley Page, you know what the Valley offers: canoeing, fishing, biking, even bald eagle sightings. Route 97, which passes through Barryville, has been designated a scenic byway - be sure to bring your camera, especially in the autumn. The township is also home to waterfalls and rock formations, as well as the remains of the D&H Canal.
Nearby Highland is the location of the Minisink Battleground County Park, the site of the Battle of Minisink. In terms of lives, it was one of the costliest conflicts of the American Revolution.
Where: Barryville is roughly midway between New York City and Binghamton; it’s 85 miles or so north of NYC and 95 miles south of Binghamton. The nearest fair-sized airports are Newburgh’s Stewart International Airport (about 60 miles to the east) and Scranton - Wilkes-Barre Airport, 57 miles to the west in the state of Pennsylvania.
