Hancock, Deposit & East Branch

Known as “The Gateway to the Delaware River,” Hancock is located at the confluence of the West and East Branch of the river. This adorable town is conveniently located right off Route 17 making it an attractive getaway destination for those in New York City, Philadelphia, and Northern New Jersey, to name a few. The town is lined with adorable storefronts, incredible dining options and is now home to the largest electric vehicle station in the Southern Tier of New York State. Hancock also has a dog park and we’ve noted the pet friendly options for stays.  If you’ve been considering a getaway to explore the outdoors, we highly recommend considering Hancock and the surrounding towns of East Branch and Deposit. 

 

This area offers many unique ways to stay right on the river. You will find comfortable cabins for two, a sprawling full home rental for the family, or a quick motel stay for you and your dog. Depending on your reason for visiting, there is an accommodation to fit your adventure! We have noted dog friendly options, because what is better than bringing your pet along for the ride?
