    Visit the City of the Hills

    Oneonta, in the northern foothills of the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York, is known as "the City of the Hills". To the west of the city lies Table Rock which offers the best view of the city and is where the Mohawk name of Oneonta originates. With 14,000 inhabitants and a thriving university campus, the people of Oneonta consider their home a city with a small-town atmosphere. From indoor and outdoor sporting activities to historic attractions exhibiting some of America's best ethnographic collections, the city is sure to captivate all those who choose an Oneonta vacation rental.

    Serious golf or fun for the kids

    With more than 10 public golf courses in the area, fans of the sport are spoilt for choice when staying in an Oneonta vacation rental. The 2 nearest are Woodhaven Park and Ouleout Creek. Surrounded by pine forest and stunning views of the Catskills, all are welcome to play on these pro-level courses. If indoor fun is more your style, the Interskate 88 amusement park has plenty to keep the kids happy. You can speed off around the hardwood roller skating rink, duck and dive through the laser tag arena or spend a nostalgic few hours in the video arcade.

    Artifacts both big and small

    The City of the Hills is steeped in history. A visit to The Yager Museum of Art & Culture reveals fascinating exhibits on local archaeology and ethnography. The collection includes everything from artifacts used by the first native Americans who inhabited the area, to contemporary art by Andy Warhol and the American Impressionists. If you think your Oneonta vacation rental is quaint, consider a tour of the Swart-Wilcox House. Built in 1800, it's the oldest house in town and a museum to the settlement of the Susquehanna River region. Round off a day with a tasting at Bear Pond Winery.

    When to hit the Catskill trails

    While an Oneonta vacation rental can be enjoyed at any time of year, those drawn to the area to get out and hike in the Catskill Mountains may want to consider different factors carefully. In the peak season at the height of summer, try to book up your rental as early as possible. A good time to hit the trails is the spring months when they are less crowded and the weather slightly cooler. If you're lucky enough to secure a rental in fall, you'll enjoy the spectacular foliage as it bursts into color.

    High views and low wetlands

    To catch a sight of the native wildlife only a short distance from your Oneonta vacation rental you can choose to go high or low. The Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society Sanctuary overlooking Oneonta has a wide variety of animal and plant species. The large property has hiking trails leading through open fields and forest and is home to many species of birds, most notably red-tailed hawks and the emblematic golden eagle. If hiking uphill sounds like too much work, Emmons Pond Bog is an ethereal, somber and watery place. Here, visitors can spot all manner of amphibians and marine life.
