    Within easy reach of New York City

    The little town of Bethel lies in the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York and is perhaps most famous as the site of the famous 1969 Woodstock Festival. Though this little slice of history is fascinating, there is much more to Bethel and the surroundings countryside than the past. Being within easy reach of New York City, it's quickly becoming a magnet for vacationers who want to hike and bike through the mountain scenery. If you plan to stay in the town in summer, you'd better nab your Bethel vacation rental early to avoid disappointment.

    Beach dwellers and motor heads

    If you've managed to score your Bethel vacation rental in the spring or summer, your best bet is to head on over to Lake Superior State Park. Here, you can bask in the midday sun beside the lake, glide across the water's surface on kayaks or cast your line in to catch fish. If you're bringing the family, you could bring a picnic or spark up the BBQ in one of the pavilions. For something a little more adrenaline-inducing, motor heads can pull into the Bethel Motor Speedway for a race against some of the finest drivers in the state.

    Echoes of Woodstock

    Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix won't be able to attend, but you can still catch a concert or jam session at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, an almost 5,000-seat venue that occupies the site of the famous festival. You can complement this with a visit to the Museum at Bethel Woods, which features interactive exhibits that chronicle the political and social events that led to the Woodstock festival. Just a short drive from your Bethel vacation rental is the Catskill Distillery Company where you can take an educational tour and sample their gin, grappa and bourbon.

    Bethel enjoys all 4 seasons

    New York State enjoys all 4 distinct seasons, and, when you decide to stay in a Bethel vacation rental, very much depends on what you'd like to do when you're there. The hot, summer season sees the biggest influx of vacationers, but if you pick one of the shoulder months, you'll enjoy a more comfortable climate, fewer travelers and lower prices. Winter can be particularly scenic in Bethel when the Christmas lights are up, the area gets carpeted in thick layers of powdery snow and there's a packed calendar of festive events.

    Keep your eyes peeled for nesting eagles

    You don't need to join a tour to see the plentiful wildlife near your Bethel vacation rental. Just a few minutes' drive away is the Mongaup Valley Wildlife Management Area – you'll be surprised at how many creatures you can spot in the wetlands. You're as likely to see a shy fox or white-tailed deer as you are to see a porcupine or ruffed grouse. If you're there around dawn or dusk, you could hear the haunting hoot of a great horned owl but the stars of the show are undoubtedly the eagles that nest in the park's treetops.
