Picture this...

You wake up to a crisp winter morning, there’s fresh snow on the ground and a big blue sky, outside your window are snow-capped mountains, one of which is a ski resort. It’s early, and while you sip a cup of coffee in front of a sleek modern gas fireplace with plush carpet beneath your feet, you watch as the resort’s first arrivals unload their equipment from their cars, trudging unsteadily in their ungainly ski boots up to the lodge to buy their lift tickets. What a slog! Some of them probably started their day hours ago, shoveling snow off the car they left parked on their city block, loading up outside their apartment building, and driving up to the mountains. Your car is parked underground in a heated garage, waiting for

Find a community choir in the Catskills and Mid-Hudson Valley so you can sing it with a group!

There are all kinds of studies about how singing is good for your body and emotional health. There are also studies about how singing in a group has added benefits. If you've ever sung in a choir you probably get it without having to read any of those studies. Making music with other people can be a delight, a transcendent experience, and/or a worthy intellectual challenge. Also, if you're one of those people who wants somewhere to go a couple nights out of the week that doesn't involve eating, a choir might be just the thing.

One of the best things about being a Real Estate agent is that it's part of my job to know what's going on in the towns and villages that I serve. I love that. Not only do I dig being "in the know", but I love having a reason to perk up and take notice when people's dreams come true. In the past few months I've seen a lot of dreams come to fruition in the form of new businesses; I want to share them with you. Try them out! See what you think! Opening can be hard and every new customer can make a difference.

Here's my list of new spots to check out in January:

Say, "Slippers, begone!", with our list of 10 Catskill events in January 2020 - they'll get you out of the house and keep you out of a funk.

There's only one way to avoid the "Cabin Fever" of February and March that we all dread in the North East - get out of your cabin! Get out! Go somewhere! I know, I know, so many of the temptations to leave home have disappeared. Want some yummy take out? You can probably get it delivered. Want to watch a movie? Gone are the days of Blockbuster and even Red Box (I miss them). Want to catch up with a friend? Skype them, whatsapp them, or facetime+facebook two different buddies on two different devices. All this seems great, until you begin to feel the walls close in and it's 10 pm on Saturday night and you

Whether you're in the Catskills/Mid-Hudson Valley region for the weekend, or live here year-round, if there's snow on the ground, it's likely that someone in your crew wants to go sledding. Here's our list of favorite hills in Kingston, Rhinebeck, Saugerties, Woodstock, and New Paltz that are open for everyone to join in the fun. Go ahead, indulge in some sledding in the Catskills and Hudson Valley.

 

Every time the snow falls and a blanket of fluffy white goodness coats the ground, in Ulster and Dutchess Counties, we're ready for fun! There’s a certain magic in the air that you have to take advantage of; sledding is a swell way to do it - it's safer than some other winter sports, easy to do, and substantially more convenient too! Don't have a
