Montague, NJ

Hidden Hollow Pines by Tentrr

Official Tentrr site. Tentrr is a trusted partner of BookOutdoors.Bring out your inner-Lenni Lenape and explore Northwestern New Jersey's Skylands region and the Upper Delaware Valley. This is one of the most beautiful parts of New Jersey with its unique rock formations, pristine forests, and varied fauna and flora. Montague, NJ is the only town in NJ that borders NY and PA. There are no traffic lights and it is not far from the bustle of the surrounding metropolitan area. However, when you wake up here you will feel what our first Americans felt and exclaim "God is great." You can skip church and marvel at what the Creator entrusted the Lenni Lenape or "the common or original people" with.Secluded woodland site off a dead-end street about 1/2 mile from the Delaware River and the nearby attractions include horseback riding, farms, canoeing, biking, etc. Enjoy tall pine trees, hemlock, and a small seasonal creek. The site is situated on a 5-acre lot adjacent to the property owner's other 60 acres and about 40 more state-owned acres that are adjacent to the lot. Very desolate once you're here but only about 5 minutes away from Port Jervis, NY, and 10 minutes away from Milford, PA. Enjoy the Highlands nature at its best including deer, bear, fox, raccoon, turkey, fishers, skunks, porcupines, turtles, snakes, and frogs. Because we are located near the Delaware River the mornings are full of dew and the temperature seems to be about 10 degrees lower than the rest of NJ due to the vibrant foliage and higher elevation. It beats the Jersey Shore in terms of recharging with nature's healing powers.
