Exploring Ulster County Territory

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 historic 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 would be driving on 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.

The Great Ulster County Oudtoors

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.
