Summer Camp Grows Up

If you went to summer camp, you have nostalgia for summer camp; it’s as simple as that. Every time you start to forget how much fun you had, how free you felt, you see a canoe atop a car, or you scroll through Netflix and catch “Wet Hot American Summer” and laugh until you cry. You want to go back! Now! 

Guess what? You can. 65 Hollow Road in Woodstock NY was once a boy’s camp. The mess hall is there, the bunk house is there, the pond, the pool, the WATER SLIDE. But it’s all been converted into a private paradise. The perfect place for you and your friends spend your weekends reliving your childhood.

In a hidden meadow on the outskirts of Woodstock New York, five buildings offer a variety of living spaces, creative spaces,

Woodstock's Real Estate Photographer Kicks off The Holiday Season in Woodstock NY

Emerge Gallery in Saugerties NY

 

One of my favorite events in the yearly Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty calendar is the annual Halloween Parade that winds its way up and down the main thoroughfare in Woodstock. Here’s a selection of my favorite pictures from this year:

Who doesn’t love a character?

Who’s your favorite person to have dinner with? Someone who’s steadfast but quiet, or your quirky friend who throws you more curveballs than Noah Syndergaard? I already know the answer. What type of actors are guaranteed to have the longest careers? That’s right. Character actors. And what is the most often requested feature of a home? You guessed it. Character!

When you think about it, “character” is a somewhat vague thing to request when you’re talking about a home. There are so many kinds of character. When you say character, you might mean you want a giant vertical atrium that ascends through the center of the home. You

Horseback Riding in The Hudson Valley

Hudson Valley Hunter Pace Candida Ellis

 

All my life I was completely obsessed with horses. When I was a child, growing up in England, all I wanted was a rocking horse. I never got one.

Stop. This is not going to be the whiny story of my sad inner child, fed only with hand-me-down toys. It is, in fact, a story of realized dreams.

When a rocking horse wasn’t forthcoming, I downgraded my expectations somewhat and asked for a hobby horse. You remember those; a stick with a stuffed animal horse head on the end? I never got one of those either.
