Stroll country lanes overlooking distant Catskill and Taconic Range mountains, lake views, and dramatic sunsets. This protected 30-acre retreat is midway between Berkshire County Massachusetts, the upper Hudson River Valley, and NYS Capital District cultural events and historic interests, all within a thirty-minute drive. Nearby northern Columbia County and the Berkshires are known for local country activities such as historic home and garden tours, antique shopping, live theater, fairs, and farmer's markets. The restored villages of "The Chathams" are a scenic, uncluttered ten- to twenty-minute drive away.
