miles) and Hunter Mountain (for winter sports, 10
miles) in the sleepy hamlet of Palenville, the setting

beauty of this area serves as the inspiration for the
Hudson River School of Painting.

H.I.T.S. for summertime equestrian events.
Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your lovely home.
The house is clean and comfortable and decorated so beautifully. There are so many great books to read and movies to watch. And then, of course, there is the main attraction, which is the falls. We had so much fun hopping from rock to rock, or just sitting and meditating. Our dog Conrad is a little timid around water, so we didn't know what kind of reaction he would have. But he loved it! By the last day, he was hopping on the rocks too. (Maybe next time, he'll dare to go into the river!)
We are already talking about renting again in May!
Thank you again and again!
