Just one and a half hours north of New York City is where you'll find Catskill real estate. Are you thinking “Dirty Dancing”? Are you thinking sleepy mountain towns with little commerce and not much happening on a Saturday night? Are you thinking, “sure it’s pretty… but if I go to the Catskills I’ll be alone. What are you thinking? Read more.
Check out Catskills property in an area that's vibrant both with the beauty of nature and human nature. Residents enjoy the mountains, streams, sports and horticultural pursuits that are available to them. They also enjoy a cultural calendar that’s packed with events from incredible local, national and international artists. Yes, the towns in the Catskills NY are smaller than those of the counties to the South that line the Hudson River, but we like to think they have a spirit that pushes beyond the limits of their small footprint. That spirit emanates from the people who have chosen to make the Catskills their home: artists, businesspeople, homesteaders, and craftsman make the Catskills their full-time home and mix seamlessly those who come for a weekend escape from the city or suburbs. They’ve all chosen to contribute their considerable gifts to this beautiful area and the result is a place like no other.
Most of the large hotels of the “Dirty Dancing” era have been replaced by art galleries, adventure sports centers, hip boutique hotels and motels and outrageously good restaurants. The Catskills has become as much a residential area as a recreational one. There’s nothing like living in a place where art, history, natural beauty and adventure are everywhere you turn.
Catskills homes for sale are famous for what we at Village Green call “Woodstockie Houses”. Cottages and cabins that were conceived and often built by craftsman with a creative bent dot the villages and mountain roads of the Catskills. But of course, Catskill real estate has more to offer than just these little gems. Lately modern dwell style homes are popping up across the mountains and mixing in with the existing farmhouses, log cabins, capes and ranches. Check out new homes in the Catskills here.
