Quintessential small town life on the Hudson River

When you conjure up images of the perfect Hudson River Valley town, you're probably picturing Catskill. With its picture-perfect Main Street, artsy boutiques, and scenic waterfront, Catskill is the epitome of small town charm, even though it's a mere two hours north of bustling New York City. A centrally located Catskill vacation rental puts you on the doorstep of some of the area's best skiing and hiking. After taking in all the fresh air and scenery, you'll see why Rip Van Winkle chose to rest his head here for 20 years (maybe set an alarm, just in case).

Things to do

Step into the past in idyllic Catskill

Catskill's picturesque Main Street offers everything you could want in a charming small town. Lined with colorful Victorian houses, the quaint strip is home to local shops, a classic 1920s movie theater, and a maritime museum. Art history buffs will enjoy a visit to the Thomas Cole National Historic Site, dedicated to the father of America's first art movement. For a dose of nature, head to Kaaterskill Falls, one of the tallest in the state, or North/South Lake for the views from the former site of the historic Catskill Mountain House.

Weather

Bundle up before hitting the slopes

Winter is a popular time for Catskill vacation rentals, thanks to the heavy snows that blanket the area and make for prime skiing conditions at Hunter Mountain. Temperatures from December through February (or even longer) can be well below freezing, so bring your warmest sweater for some cozy apres-ski cuddling. Late September and October are peak leaf peeping season, with fiery foliage all up and down the Hudson Valley. Summers are warm, with high temps from June to August in the 80s, so shed the coats and soak up the sun.
