Old-world character, done New York-style

If the incredible views don't grab you, the charming neighbors definitely will. There's something almost magical about Rhinebeck, a quaint New York village brimming with character and personality at every turn. Equally historic and sophisticated, it's the place to visit if you're seeking a little bit of everything. When you book a Rhinebeck vacation rental, you'll experience it all: the echoes of eras past, modern-day style, fresh air, and the great outdoors. Whether you're traveling solo or with the family, you'll appreciate Rhinebeck's versatility.

Things to do

Pieces of history here, there and everywhere

If you're curious about where you're staying, pop over to the Museum of Rhinebeck History to delve deep into the area's past. Set in a 19th-century country house, the impressive Wilderstein is another historic museum worth visiting, if only for the immaculate mansion setting. Those with an appreciation for transportation will love the Trolley Museum of New York, which is home to the PATH car 143, salvaged from the World Trade Center in 2001. Vintage aircraft are on display at the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome, and many of them still operate on weekends during air shows.

Rhinebeck also hosts many family-friendly festivals throughout the year, celebrating everything from crafts to wine to bacon.
