Two hours north of New York city, Woodstock instantly brings to mind the famous music fest which actually occurred in Bethel, over sixty miles away. But the town is more well know as a thriving arts colony with rows of galleries and shops along Tinker street, the remarkable stream-side Bearsville Theater and Byrdcliffe Guild, a regional center for the performing and fine arts. Come for the Woodstock Film Festival in October, the Maverick Chamber Music Festival in Summer, Levon Helm’s Midnight Rambles summer music series, and the Farmers Market.
An all season playground, Woodstock is framed by the Catskills mountains and offers up summer hiking trails in nearby Wilson state park, canoeing and kayaking on the Hudson river and Great Lake, and local swimming holes galore.
Just across from the house is trail access with miles of protected state land for great for cross country skiing and snow shoeing. Both Belleyre and Hunter ski resorts are within thirty minutes and Windham is under an hour.
