Much of Marbletown is comprised of small hamlets dispersed through a natural, seemingly untouched, scenic countryside landscape with views of the majestic Mohonk and Catskill mountains peeking over the horizon. The hamlets and villages that make up the town of Marbletown contain quaint specialty shops and small restaurants boasting uncommon culinary delights, but if you blink driving down Main Street, you may miss them. Once as you leave these small hamlets, you are left with beautiful sprawling, rolling countryside, dotted with old stone farmhouses and barns that make you feel as if you should be driving in a horse and buggy, not in a car. Marbletown is an outdoor enthusiast’s haven, a peaceful and rejuvenating getaway, home to the real estate hot spots

The Kingston real estate market is pretty diverse, even compared to it’s neighboring Ulster County towns. In some areas of town it’s not difficult to find properties $100,000 or less, that, while they may need some work, have great potential. On the flip side, Kingston is home to some of the oldest stone buildings and historic homes in all of Ulster County (some of which date back to the 1700’s and survived the burning of Kingston by the Brits!) and owning a piece of history is usually considerably more than the average Hudson Valley home price. So if you’re looking to own a home in Kingston, the sky’s the limit- from a fixer upper to a piece of Americana history and everything in between.

A large selection of properties in Kingston on the market means

For not being in a major city, The Hudson Valley is a bit spoiled when it comes to the mouth watering culinary options that are available to us. We live in an area that hosts and teaches, some of the best chefs in the world (thank you Culinary Institute of America!) so it’s no surprise that there is an abundance of award winning restaurants from which we can choose to eat at and expand our culinary palettes far beyond the reaches of Ulster County, NY.

The Daily Freeman, Kingston’s news source, published an article earlier this year about uptown Kingston’s “restaurant renaissance” and how 2015’s positive year end has everyone optimistic about a successful 2016. We were inspired by the article, (and by the awesome food at these restaurants!) to compile a

Now that spring has arrived, (and yes, despite that freak snowstorm earlier this week, it is infact still spring) we’re seeing an increase of homes entering the market. Highland, in particular has some great properties that have just been listed, but with amenities as great as these properties possess, we don’t think they will be up for grabs too long!

A townhouse is a great option for young professionals or small families as a starter home or for retirees who are looking to scale back their home ownership responsibilities. Owning a townhome usually gives you access to additional amenities and use of shared spaces in the complex and also means less maintenance and upkeep on outdoor spaces (always be sure to look at HOA fees and what they include while

Wine cork- Enjoy.jpgThe Hudson Valley knows their food and wine! Whether you just can’t decide on what to eat or drink, or you wish to try some new and top notch food and beverages, festivals are the perfect way to get a taste of the valley. The Shawangunk Wine Trail gets in on the fun and hosts a multitude of events and festivals each year, showcasing their winemaker’s best vintages and accompaniments.

The 80 mile long Shawangunk Wine Trail is made up of 15 family-owned wineries located between the Shawangunk Mountain ridge and the Hudson River, stretching from the Ulster County towns of New Paltz, Gardiner and Marlboro to our southern neighbor of Orange County, New York. The wineries on the Gunks trail all have their own unique vibe that is sure to wow and their
