Ahh, the sweet scent of summer is practically at our doorsteps, but it might not be in our homes just yet. Yes, it’s time to open up those windows, let in some fresh, spring country air and de-winterize, Hudson Valley!

If you’re thinking of listing your home on the market this spring, it’s more important than ever to be on top of your spring cleaning and de-winterizing game if you want to avoid any potential headaches down the road in the sales process. Sometimes a clean, bright, uncluttered space is all that it takes to get the offer that you were looking for as opposed to no offer at all. Proper de-winterizing and preventative maintenance is also much easier to keep up with, rather than waiting and hearing some disconcerting news after a home

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

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
