Things To Do In Upstate New York! Being in the Real Estate biz, we're plugged into the event scene across the many counties of the Hudson Valley and Catskills region. We love all the creativity we're seeing! It seems that our neighbors spent the quiet pandemic time coming up with new and different ways for us to have fun together (without discarding the best of the old ways). We shout, "hooray" for Painting With Ponies, a no-phone music and camping festival, and a nighttime market featuring "exotic oddities". We've culled together a list of concerts, festivals, fairs, farmer's markets, and other happening events in the Hudson Valley and Catskills for summer 2022 that we're excited for. We hope to see you at some of them! Look for the Coldwell Banker

Where To Launch Kayaks In The Hudson Valley


Experts in Real Estate, Experts in Landscape

We live in one of the most magnificent regions of the world. On the rare occasions when we have the opportunity to see the Hudson Valley from the air, it's impossible not to be impressed with the big picture; the majestic river that built our towns and commerce, the surrounding valley, and the hills and mountains around it. We live in the midst of a seventh grade geography lesson. Get far enough off the ground on a crystal clear day and you'll begin to see the incredible system of beautiful waterways that feed the Hudson. Wonderful. And when we're earth-bound again we’re blessed with daily chances to not just be near the rivers, lakes and streams that have carved out our landscape, but to be on them!

(Oh, how the photo above warms our heart - handmade snowshoes, snow, pretty trees, silent woods. Don't worry - we're not going to send you to rent these kind of snowshoes tough; just look at those bindings! These are here for the ambiance. Read on for where to rent snowshoes that reliably stay ON your feet.)

Please raise your hand if you are so, so tired of being cooped up inside...I'm imagining hands going up from Southern New Jersey to Albany.

The state of our social lives has kept us inside this year and I'll be the first to admit that it's getting to be a real drag. Sometimes the ski resorts are booked and as a last-minute planner I'm left without a lift ticket and avoiding the lodge and large groups of people takes a commitment I don't

Who doesn’t remember the scene in Pretty Woman where Vivian (Julia Roberts) and Edward (Richard Gere), discuss his penchant for penthouses, despite his great fear of heights?

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

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.

Fortunately I have a Dad who loved to ride and found a way to combine his Daddy duties with his favorite pastime. I was often the only (very tiny) child on a wild adult ride, galloping behind on my

 37 Notch View, Lexington NY 12452

A Catskills Log Home

 

A well-sited house. When you start with a beautiful piece of land, land with a bewitching pond, views of mountains and rolling hills, views of vibrantly colored sunsets, views of night skies peppered with stars… when you start with 5 acres within easy distance of 3 ski mountains, it almost doesn’t matter what the house is like, just so long as it takes advantage of the location.  

But, when the house is a fabulous log home with 7,000 square feet of living space, lots of thoughtful touches, and endless possibilities for fun, well, that’s a big bonus. 37 Notch View in Lexington undeniably has the type of property that is enough all on its own, and the house is sited to maximize the

Amidst an election that made people uncertain of the future and caused many to be distracted from their personal goals, the real estate market soldiered on in 2016, and finished with a bright outlook. Forbes Magazine provided a very concise summary of what happened nationally, "...on balance 2016 was a pretty good year for housing. National prices finally crossing the previous 2006 peak, mortgage rates remained historically low and there were some signs that Millennials, a generation which some feared would never buy homes, are beginning to enter the market. Through it all the election loomed large. In 2017 we'll see how profound its effects."  

 Regionally 2016 might be called "The Year of The Hudson Valley"

There was a rash of articles

Perfect springtime activities for children in the Catskills and Hudson Valley.

Last weekend my family took a trip to Washington DC to see all the monuments and go the Smithsonian Museum of Art and the Native American Museum. It was great! My husband and I totally enjoyed it and my 10-year-old daughter only became antsy when I marveled at the Dutch Masters for too long and then got sucked into an opera concert rehearsal we happened to stumble upon 3 minutes later.

 

 

(a little F.D.R. wisdom from our trip - pertinent to an article about kids outdoors!)

 

Her waning enthusiasm reminded me of the last time I had visited DC. I was 12 years old.

  • I remember being miserable.
  • I remember being HOT.
