You'll find Accord homes for sale in the valley between the two mountain ranges that make Upstate New York a destination: The Catskills are visible to the northwest, the Shawangunks to the southeast. Spin in a circle and it's views, views, views. If you're a hiker and want a perfect home base from which to embark, Accord is a great choice. It's a short drive from , and there are endless trails that wind through both mountain ranges.
Accord has another draw. It's with good reason that (what is thought to be) the nation's oldest public road, Route 209, passes directly through Accord. Dutch settlers found the Rondout Valley to be an ideal location for both farming (the valley is quite fertile) and trapping, and the Rondout Creek was navigable by boat which made it possible to transport their goods. It must have been a pretty cushy spot back when you needed to make your living from available natural resources. The same Dutch settlers built the many beautiful stone houses that are the crown jewels of Upstate NY real estate and still dot the fields of Accord. Today Accord's agricultural roots are bringing forth new fruit: Farm stands abound, and there are more farmers in the Rondout Valley each year. If you want to cultivate your own garden or buy a full-blown farm, you'll find yourself in good company here.
When you've tired yourself out in the mountain air or with growing things, and you need dinner and a movie, concert, or play, New Paltz and Kingston are both about a 20-minute drive from Accord.
