Catskill vacation rentals

Quintessential small town life on the Hudson River

When you conjure up images of the perfect Hudson River Valley town, you're probably picturing Catskill. With its picture-perfect Main Street, artsy boutiques, and scenic waterfront, Catskill is the epitome of small town charm, even though it's a mere two hours north of bustling New York City. A centrally located Catskill vacation rental puts you on the doorstep of some of the area's best skiing and hiking. After taking in all the fresh air and scenery, you'll see why Rip Van Winkle chose to rest his head here for 20 years (maybe set an alarm, just in case).

A paradise for adrenaline junkies

The Hudson River Valley is an outdoor lover's dream. Nearby Hunter Mountain is home to some of the best skiing for miles around. You can still get your adrenaline fix when the snow melts at the highest and longest zipline in North America. The Catskills are known for spectacular hiking trails, including the breathtaking views at North/South Lake. Closer to home, the Dutchman's Landing public boat launch lets you get up close and personal with the Hudson River. There are enough craft breweries in the area to please even the most discerning beer connoisseur (just bring a designated driver).

Step into the past in idyllic Catskill

Catskill's picturesque Main Street offers everything you could want in a charming small town. Lined with colorful Victorian houses, the quaint strip is home to local shops, a classic 1920s movie theater, and a maritime museum. Art history buffs will enjoy a visit to the Thomas Cole National Historic Site, dedicated to the father of America's first art movement. For a dose of nature, head to Kaaterskill Falls, one of the tallest in the state, or North/South Lake for the views from the former site of the historic Catskill Mountain House.

A river runs through it

The Hudson River is the heart and soul of the region, and Catskill's prime waterfront location makes for some stunning scenery. The surrounding mountains and forests are the perfect backdrop for your Catskill vacation rental, whether you're enjoying the river views or the stunning fall leaves. Hunter Mountain offers year round activities, and the countless rocky hiking trails are the perfect place to encounter local wildlife. Don't miss a visit to the towering Kaaterskill Falls, or one of the area's many pristine, hidden lakes.
