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

Local Winter Outfitters

In The Catskills And Hudson Valley

At this time of year I’m thinking about keeping warm and healthy, and although I could easily stay indoors until April, I want to get out and breathe the air! One way of keeping warm is getting cozy in front of a crackling fire, but I’m convinced warmth comes from the inside out, and the best way to get warm is to get moving.

I love living in the Hudson Valley, one of the most beautiful places on the planet, and I really appreciate how the beauty changes with each season. In winter, I see the underpinnings, the mountains’ outlines against the sky, the bare trees’ graceful limbs, the muted colors and the shapes of nature. It’s never as cold outside as it looks from inside the house, so

Hudson Valley Fall Events

This is the best time of year to be outside - it's just so comfy! A light sweater, a pair of jeans, some snazzy boots, and a nice relaxing weekend event, and we're loving my life. Late Summer/Early Fall can be a time for the ultimate FOMO in The Hudson Valley and Catskills. Even this year, with events just getting rolling again, there are so many events it can be really difficult to decide which to prioritize. Of course, you need to pick apples and eat cider doughnuts; here's Hudson Valley Magazine's Guide on that - they do a great job. Of course, you'll need to leaf peep in the late fall; here's The Great Northern Catskills guide to the best spots to see the fall foliage and get out of your car. But everywhere you turn

(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

Luxury Real Estate For Sale In The Catskills 

Welcome to Chateau DeVue

The Penthouse In The Catskills

 

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? When Vivian asks why he’s rented the penthouse when he’s too afraid to enjoy the view, Edward answers, “Because it’s the best.”

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

Imagine your ideal home. Is it a sanctuary that fosters peace and repose? Is it a place that soothes your soul with crisp green meadows, calm-inducing creeks, serene ponds, and lush mountains? Country living is a dream for so many. We hear though, that moving to the countryside can be intimidating.

Catskills Cabin For Sale 

A Unique Cottage / Cabin for Sale in The Catskills

At its most basic, home is a warm, dry place where inhabitants are protected from the elements.

In fact, that might be the New American Dream; owning a home that both feeds “you” and expresses “you”! That’s a pretty tall order.

Happily, for some lucky creative-type who has been searching for the place to live out the New American Dream in the Catskills, 2817 Route 10 in Ashland (located in Greene County) is being offered for sale!

Hoping your Catskill Escape Will Have a Stream?

 

One of the most relaxing things you can do this time of year in the Catskills & Hudson Valley Region is to pack yourself a thermos of tea, find a rock by a stream, and watch beautifully colored leaves float down a stream. How lovely does that sound? Streams are equally entertaining in the winter, when their edges freeze up, providing endless opportunities for ice crunching; in summer, when the moving water can cool your feet and offer a chance to observe wildlife; and in spring when their power and size change daily.

Streams are calming, so calming that corporations build them into the lobbies of their headquarters, people incorporate them into their homes via small water fixtures, and the

Catskills and Hudson Valley Real Estate - A Tour Via Fireplace

Fall has arrived and it's just about time for our first indoor fires of the year. Sometimes a client's search for a home in the Catskills and Hudson Valley revolves entirely around a single feature; the fireplace. It's that important! A fireplace in the right place, in the right style, and of the right size is integral to many people's vision of "home". So, in honor of the crisp air I've clicked and sorted and pulled together a pile of properties with fireplaces to suit every taste and budget. Just imagine spending an afternoon in front of each one of these.

P.S. most of these homes have a lot of other great features as well.
