Here in Palenville, the lovely, historic Fernwood Restaurant is literally just a 2 minute stroll from The Waterfall House. 

Woodstock, a 12 mile drive, is a haven for shops, galleries and restaurants.  Stroll along Tinker Street and explore all that Woodstock has to offer.  In summer, browse the outdoor flea market held on weekend and Wednesdays.  Enjoy a concert at the historic Maverick or live theater at the Woodstock Playhouse.  The Woodstock Film Festival, held in October , is a movie lovers delight. 

Summer is the time for H.I.T.S., a major equestrian center located in Saugerties, just minutes from our Waterside Homes.  The Village of Saugerties (8 miles) provides easy access to the Hudson River for boating and sailing.  The village itself is home to numerous pubs, restaurants and a variety of shops, including several antque stores where you'll hunt for potential treasures.  Saugerties hosts many festivals and events such as the Garlic Festival and the Jazz festival.  A colorful Farmers Market is open on Saturdays in season. 

Hunter Mountain (10 miles), provides a wide range of winter and summer activities.  Hunter is the first of the three major ski resorts, which also include Windham and Belleayre. All three resorts have activities outside of skiing, including alpine slides, concerts, and themed weekends.  The Catskill Mountain Foundation offers classes in the arts and many craft and culinary events.  Nature lovers will appreciate the access to hiking and fishing. 

The quaint Village of Catskill ( 10 miles) is an up and coming art and antiquing  community with several excellent restaurants.  Meander a bit further and you'll find Hudson, a twon brimming with antiques stores of every description as well as a variety of restaurants and cares.  The Hudson Opera House is a historic venue for events of interest.
