Fall is a great time to come during the change of colors, with lots of pick-your-own orchards to choose from. In the warmer months there are dairy farms and fruit stands, berry picking, plus trails and waterfalls and swim holes including the beautiful Lake Taghkanic beach, just a ten minute drive from the house.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are a family of four: A photographer/painter, an editor who works in the home improvement sector, and two young daughters. We discovered this house after searching every weekend for 2 years while living in Brooklyn. We spent 8 months adding onto the house and renovating the existing space, then lived in the house for a year while furnishing it and making further improvements. We love this house but had to move back to Brooklyn for work and school. We have grown to love the Hudson Valley, it is full of fun activities, especially the nearby town of Hudson. There is a strong cultural vibe blended with a close knit community of farmers, food artisans and do-it-yourselfers. We are constantly running into interesting folks who have fled the chaos of the city looking for a simpler life, or hard working salt-of-the earth people who have been here for generations. We get our garden's compost from a local stable that offers rides for the kids. In the summer we frequent farmer's markets and fruit stands and have fun discovering hiking trails and swim holes. We are regulars at the local book store, Spotty Dog Books and Ale, and love to catch shows at Basilica Hudson. In the fall we bake a lot of pies, there are orchards everywhere. It's also our favorite time of the year because the colors around our house and the valley are gorgeous! In the winter our oldest daughter learned how to snowboard at the local ski area, Catamount, a 20 minute drive. These are just a few reasons why we like it here, and we think you will agree it's a special place!
