Between the fantastic mountain vistas, sparkling water, diverse culture and rugged trails, there is plenty to explore without ever being bored in the Catskills. Jump on the trails for mountain biking, hiking, or horseback riding.

Attractions are plentiful in this particular county. The original home of the Woodstock concert is the Bethel Woods Center of the Arts. Nowadays, it is home to huge name concerts, theater productions, and family fun with a museum shrine of the sixties. Who doesn’t love the 60s? Bethel Woods provides entertainment to all walks of life and different cultures. This is a must see in Sullivan County and is even worth the drive for a quick weekend away from the city.

The Monticello Raceway is another great place for adult fun at the track. Watch the horses compete around the track or play a hand of blackjack at the casino.

Golfing in the Catskills is some of the finest and you have a large selection of courses to choose from. The scenery cannot be unmatched. We suggest the Lochmore for the experienced golfer or the Villa Roma Country club for great views with a course in always fantastic condition.

Visit the Rockettes at Radio City Hall! Witness the lighting of the Christmas tree. Watch the parade. Go Christmas shopping at Macy’s. These can take a day or two but why stay in the city, where a regular hotel room could go for $200.00 a night. Paying for 4 walls with no room to roam and often an extra charge for more than 4 people, this seems silly doesn’t it?

#LakeGeorge vacation homes! More than just a place …a whole lot more.

You can’t call it “a New York vacation” if you don’t visit Lake George! The majestic mountains and serene waters make this place luxurious and outstanding all in its own glorious ways. Let us tell you why the scenery can’t be unmatched and why all the extra cool factors make this your first vacation hot spot.

Lake George resides within Warren County with many spectacular options of activities to do as well. Enjoy what people over the last century have been doing while visiting this famous area. Sit on the beach and relax with a book, or take a boat and try your luck at first class fishing — it is one of New York’s finest fishing lakes.

Fishing and a stay of one of these Lake George vacation rentals won’t disappoint. Attention anglers: When lake temps hover around the 65 degree mark, the fish are biting! You will find fish close to 90 in. long in most waters.  Lake trout may be one of the most desired of all but there are many other opportunities for rainbow trout and salmon. Salmon and lake trout are best caught in shallow water during the colder waters but are limited to the deep waters in the heat of the summer. Pan fish and black fish are also common in this lake. Cold water fish can be found here as well.

While it’s not the actual Lake George, the area boasts some of the best attractions in the area. Let’s go tubing down the 17 mile long Hudson River! Nothing like getting a true experience like white water rafting as well.  Can you paddleboard? This is the rage these days! Learn your way on Lake George!

Whether it’s boating, fishing, or even just kicking back at the beach; the waters will mesmerize you.

Let’s look above the waters for a second and indulge in the beauty of the vast skies. Lake George has a stunning view of the sunrises and the sunsets don’t disappoint either. While enjoying the beauty, take in a little activity such as hot air balloon festivals in the area, even small airplane rides.

Go ahead, live like a queen, or king. These waters have been vacation hot spots for the rich and famous and there is no reason why you can’t enjoy them either.  Here is a list of the best vacation rentals ever:

The Estate Cottages on Lake George: These cottages sit right amongst the heated pool, Jacuzzi and beach of Lake George. This resort also supplies complimentary canoes, kayaks, and paddle boats.
