Why Choose Ulster County?
Urban sophistication, just a short drive away from pastoral serenity, alongside thriving and picturesque farms and orchards, punctuated by huge swaths of forever-wild, preserved land—and most all of it's less than 100 quick Thruway miles from Manhattan. Small wonder that so many have come for the day and stayed for a lifetime.
Ulster county real estate has long enjoyed a reputation among discerning homebuyers seeking a convenient, peaceful, and private weekend refuge surrounded by nature's ever-changing canvas—from summer's fern-carpeted forests to the brilliant crimson and gold panoramas of fall, and on into winter's silent, pure-white blankets gently draped over mountains and meadows.
Now homes in Ulster County are becoming the choice for a growing number of full-time residents, thanks to its excellent schools, a growing network of bus and rail transportation, and its proximity to a soon-to-be-major airport.
Ulster County Real Estate Communities
The diversity of real estate in Ulster County allows you to live the way you want to live; from the small-city sophistication of Kingston, to the pulsating artistic and intellectual energy of New Paltz (home to the most sought-after campus in the entire state university system), to the sleepy country contentment of little hamlets like Olive, Cragsmoor, and Stone Ridge.
Stately stone homes, many from the 1600's when the area was first settled, have for the last 400 years watched over the same country lanes you're driving today. Again and again, the good life meets granola. Lost in what seem like remote backwoods on your way to legendary Woodstock with its carefully preserved 1970's aura of peace and love, you round a bend in the road and unexpectedly pass yet another Zagat-rated epicurean temple of fine dining.
The sheer, towering white granite cliffs of the Shawungunk Ridge to the west—an irresistible challenge to gritty, hardbody rock climbers the world over—are just a short distance from the renowned Mohonk Mountain House and the legendary, old-world pampering that has always been the hallmark there. And just down the road from a shop specializing in gleaming, restaurant-quality cookware you're likely to find home-dug potatoes in a farmers' market, or a little unattended stand displaying locally picked apples by the bag—just leave your money in the box, please; no one is watching.
Recreation in Ulster County
Boulder, Colorado claims the title “Outdoor Capital of the United States” only because Ulster didn't think of it first. And Ulster deserves it. Thousands of acres of preserved parkland contain hundreds of miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, and trail running. Southeast Ulster is considered the hang-gliding capital of the East. Cyclists consider the Hudson Valley Catskills some of the best road and trail riding in the country. And in snow season, good ski slopes are never more than an hour away.So please, be my guest and take your time exploring this web site and all it has to say about this rare and remarkable refuge called Ulster County. I've lived here all my life, and I've also traveled the globe. I can tell you that there is no place else like it.
