The Maple Grove House
Long Eddy hotels such as the Maple Grove House served as stopping places for both laborers and vacationers. Log drivers guiding their rafts down the Delaware River found the calm waters of the eddy a convenient place to tie up their log rafts and spend the evening (perhaps even have a glass of spirits or two!) The railroad, and later automobiles, brought vacationers here to experience the outdoor activities of hunting, fishing, hiking and boating during the day and the comfort of a hotel room in the evening.
