This is the second year of our new tradition- Easter at the Tree Farm - and we enjoyed every minute. We hiked through the woods, saw some mergansers and buffleheads on the Delaware and then relaxed by the fire. We look forward to next year when Easter is in April- and hopefully warener.

Jane, Thank you so much for letting us share in your tree farm. It is beautiful and peaceful here. It was definitely the best anniversary we have had. We can't wait to come back.

Jane, Coming here was a last minute decision and I'm so glad we did! Between NYC life, work and having a baby we have not had a minute to relax. We needed this so much. Thank you for everything.

Dear Jane and John. I have been coming here since 1993 (I think). Ten years ago I started coming here with Corina, my lovely wife and then three years ago with Alex and now for the first time we are here with Evan our one year old. Evan has been through some difficult time and last week came out of major surgery. Throughout the days leading up to the surgery we have been thinking when its all done we'll celebrate at our favorite little cabin. The thought of this weekend helped us in a way get through the surgery. We always have a wonderful time here. Thanks so much for this wonderful place.

Three years ago we took a chance on a place not really knowing the area or accommodations. We were looking for an alternative to the beach for our boys. We never realized how much we would come to love this place. Both cabins we have stayed in had so much thought and care. Thank you so much for all you do and providing a home away from home. We hope to continue to make this our annual get away. See you next year!

We had a wonderful experience here at our favorite cabin, the Hermitage. As two young adults who just experienced their first year of the "real world" after college, this was a perfect opportunity to have tranquility and relaxation. We loved going out in the canoes on the river, hiking the trails here and little campfires outside at night. Not to mention having zero cell phone service was great! We have started discussing bring friends to share it with next time, packing our bikes and the smores! Thank you!

Dear Jane and John, This was our first visit and now know many more to come. The cabin far exceeded our expectations, just beautiful along with the location and surroundings- incredible. What a great way to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. Had a blast!

Dear Jane and John, We have been celebrating my birthday for at least 7 years here. Each year is more enjoyable then the year before. Sharing this day here with family and friends is so special. Thanks for sharing your beautiful land which reminds us what is truly important.

We are so glad to have found this beautiful and secret place. We enjoyed doing a whole lot of "nothing" just relaxing and enjoying the scenery. We are jealous of all that you have and all that you have preserved but so grateful that you choose to share it with others. We will be back for sure.

Our stay was brief but a perfect little family vacation. Elise is 3 and Audrey 7 1/2 months. We enjoyed the fires, hiking and getting to know the property. We enjoyed not receiving phone calls or having a computer. Elise liked just collecting rocks and sticks and the river. Thank you for sharing this beautiful property.

What an amazing place! On our first night we sat on the enclosed decking having a snack when we saw a black bear just 20 yards away. WOW! That evening a great thunderstorm and lightning experience. This is a place we will remember forever. Thank you for your wonderful welcome and kind hospitality.

Dear Jane and John- This is our 4th year here and we are celebrating our 35th anniversary. As always we have enjoyed your hospitality and everything about this place. This year we canoed from Narrowsburg to Lackawaxen. A group of 8-12 eagles gave us a spectacular show it made our day. We love this river. See you next year!

I'm sure that I could fill these pages with my memories and experiences in Mast Hope. I may just be your longest returning guest. We started coming here as a family in 1960's before Jane and John were at the helm. This place is a part of my life and will remain so forever.

Jane and John- Thank you for another wonderful weekend escape from city life. This is our second year at the Tree farm and loved it more than the first. Disconnect from everything and just recharge is what we want to do here. We love to watch the snow fall from the towering pines and walk along the river and best to sit by the fire. Can't wait for 2012! Best wishes for the New Year.
