Enjoy your activities in Hudson River Valley NY
Travel 100-mile from New York City up the Hudson River and you will find a group of cities with very different people. Since the middle of the 17th century, Rhinebeck has been a touristic city, when it was a stopover between New York City and Albany. Hudson, once a centre of angling and industrial activity, has found new lease of handicrafts.
Working as a community-minded Saugerties, we support two independant bookshops in a small city centre full of indoor-stores. See a flying technician building (or flying) an accurate replication of Charles Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis (or other ancient aircraft), and then see daring punts on Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome. Sleep in a former railway flop house, today a modern fashion store on the Hudson River.
Rhinecliff Hotel has its own Amtrak stop and offers the best of all worlds: river and land. The view of the Hudson River from the room balcony is exceptional, and you can go to Rhinebeck just two mile away for groceries. Get a Buddha or Great Estates Sampler (a choice of 16 pralines that represent the great manors of the nineteenth centuries on the Hudson River) at the Oliver Kita in Rhinebeck, Germany, tony candieshop.
Head cook Anthony Balassone and his confectioner-marriage Leslie run this extraordinary little place, which won the Rhinebeck Universals. The Hudson River, fueled by charcoal ovens, is a cosy haven when it runs on icy days. A6 ½ Blue stone acrylic range of statues, stairs and strips, Opus 40 was the work of an aspiring man, the artiste and Bard College Art Professor, Harvey Fite.
He was 37 years in his 40-year-old "Opus" when he passed away at the tender ages of 72 in the autumn, while doing what he liked. Cradles a lucky chicken or strokes a lucky bitch at the Catskill Animal Sanctuary. Enjoy a tailor-made breakfasts prepared by experienced cooks at Smythe House B&Bin Saugerties.
Smythe House owners know one or two things about hospitableness. David Smythe is not only really kind and inviting, but also a lecturer at the Culinary Institute of America and Justine, a CIA graduate, has a Master's degree in Hotel Management. Her 1890s Victorian outfit was designed to fit in with the natural surroundings, with a back yard offering breathtaking vistas of the Catskill Mountains.
Climb up the hill for an amazing panoramic vista and spend the night at Frederick Church's home, Olana. An important figure in the Hudson River School of Art motion, Kirchen constructed his home in Persian-influenced styles looking out over his loved rivers. Posthumous, he became a major actor in the Hudson Rivers preservationism when one of his works was used in an attempt to prohibit a visible atomic energy plan.
You will see this scenery and some old masters on a captivating walk through the house and atelier of the church. Buying and eating at Warren St. Antique shops and New York City decorators bought old Warren St. stores when Hudson was a depressive city and the place was dirty.
Warren Street is now flourishing with its" trendy" shops, showsrooms and great dining. Visit us in exhibition rooms such as the FRG, where Rick Gillette "revised" contemporary pieces of middle of the 20th and the funny Lili And Loo - a shop with "wearables", household goods and many chilly accessoires for home and gardens. The NYC "North" Hot Spot, Hudson draws well-known artists who usually perform in places like Helsinki.
Situated on a hundred hectare property, just three leagues from Hudson city centre, overlooking the Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains, unobtrusive rooms provide a soothing break from the bustling Warren St. 15. Although it is a 45-minute ride from Rhinebeck on your way to or from New York City, you are planning to take Madava Farms, home of Crown Maple Syrup, on a trip and a workshop on the "Bark to Barrel" production of this high quality, organically produced, naturally purified sweetening agent.
You' ll see how this is different from the regular syrups and why it's the new favourite of top cooks.
